While discussing on Facebook the report that Attorney General Loretta Lynch is making police morale, as opposed to police brutality, her top priority, a friend made the following observations:
Point blank, I have been surviving on this Earth for 42 years and finding a way to maneuver in the lower levels of corporate America to just make it in this world for a couple of decades now.
That being said, what I have found is that black people who try to achieve success in a Western society predicated on white supremacy and superiority are even more maniacal in their actions since they don’t have white privilege to rely upon to rise up the corporate ladder.

Hence, although black folks say that they have to work twice as hard as a white person to reach the same amount of success (which is true), they also must be twice as good at all the other things that make the white collar world, such as twice as much of a backstabber, twice as servile to people in positions of power and twice as hard on black folks in proving their allegiance to the basic tenets of white supremacy. The fact this woman has already planned on making a tour of these police precincts as a means of solidifying her place as top cop proves my point since none of her white predecessors felt the need to do the same thing…
What do you think? Do blacks who want to get ahead behave even more callously than their white counterparts due to the absence of white privilege?
