I still think there needs to be a double standard. I find very little value in white people complaining about unfairness or racism. White people get an instant privilege boost just for being born white in America. Sure, there are class differences. White people are born poor just like black people can be born poor. Both black and white people will say, "boy life would be a lot easier if I was born wealthy" but you don't hear a white person saying, "boy life would be a lot easier if I was born black". That simply isn`t true.
The differences between Jordan and Sterling are, to me, obvious. Paula Deen is probably a little more grey but it comes down to these questions.
Why did Jordan have racist feelings growing up South of the Mason Dixon line in the 60s?
Why did Deen have racist feelings growing up South of the Mason Dixon line in the 50s and 60s?
Which one is more justifiable? I think I know the answer.
