Christina Sommers posted the above diagram clearly designed to make a point about college students while using humor. The only problem is that Voxsplainer Matt Yglesias didn’t or can’t catch the humor. So he labeled it white privilege.

Sommers fired back.
No, it's called a joke, Mr Yglesias. Diagram made by anonymous high school kid worried about the PC madness you evince here.@mattyglesias

And others joined in to wish Yglesias well on finding a sense of humor.
@mattyglesias I came here to laugh at you, for not getting a joke.
