"You have a learning disability? But you seem so smart!"
….lol wow, how completely surprising, it’s almost like there’s more than one way to be intelligent or something!
unlearning problematic behavior is a long ass process

A white student may feel discomfort when it’s pointed out to him how he has benefited from structural racism, but to compare that discomfort to discrimination is a false equivalency. Hurt feelings hurt, but it is not oppression. But hurt feelings can be bad for business. And a lot of powerful people think colleges should act more like businesses. When they do, students act more like customers. And our likely customers might not be amicable to discussions about structural racism. If the customer is always right, then the majority share of customers is more right than the minority.
