• Born on Third Base

      Wrich, James T. (1998-11-10)
      In believing that there is an equal playing field for all races and genders in this country, it fails to recognize the importance of the one indispensable asset which more than any other paved the way for my friend and me -- White Male Privilege. Along with most of my White brothers, I was born on third base in the ball game of opportunity while sixty percent of the population has to fight like hell to even get into the ball park. Whether times were good or bad, my gender and skin pigment made everything easier for me than for my sisters of all descriptions and my brothers of color. And being tall didn’t hurt, either. Without these characteristics, little that I have achieved would have been possible. Especially in the workplace.
