Salon editor-at-large Joan Walsh is the author of “What’s the Matter With White People?”, so yes, you could say she wrote the book on white privilege and racism. She, along with  MSNBC’s Touré and Talking Points Memo’s Josh Marshall, have been tireless in their efforts to expose the white supremacy that is endemic to American culture. It doesn’t look like many have been convinced, but that was before hearing Walsh’s harrowing tale of white privilege on display in the subway, courtesy of two chiseled porcelain kids. We guess that means they were really, really white.

Fortunately, the story has a happy ending. After eavesdropping on the pair, Walsh stepped up as they exited the train car to let them know they’re all wrong. We don’t like to throw around the word “hero,” but…

No, that’s it.
