You’d think Jonathan Metzel, the author of this op-ed in the Washington Post, has spent the past decade (plus!) with his head in the sand.

NOW it’s time to talk about being white in America? NOW?

Have we not spent the last nearly 12 years being told white people should be ashamed of being white and stuff? Maybe he missed the whole ‘privilege’ SJW talking point?

From WaPo (behind a paywall, of course):

It’s time to talk about what it means to be white in the United States.

That’s what I was trying to do Saturday afternoon at the Politics and Prose bookstore in Northwest Washington when I was interrupted by a group of white nationalists. Ironically, the protesters’ chant — “This land is our land” — served only to reinforce my point.

Because you know, all white people are white nationalists.

For too long, many white Americans have avoided this conversation, and we’ve done so for a reason: We don’t have to see the color white. Race scholars often argue that white privilege broadly means not needing to reflect on whiteness.

Awww, so he did hear that talking point.

White is the default setting, the assumed norm. A white American does not have to think about being white when walking down the street — while people marked as not-white are often noticed and surveilled. White people have the superpower of invisibility.

Whoa, white people have superpowers?! Ok, that IS privilege.

It’s about time, right?!

We are now in a perpetual state of eye-roll, just sayin’.

What he said.

Yup, NOW.

Heh.

Monster!

But then his narrative, the Left’s narrative, about how white people are all racist, sexist, Islamophobic, bigots completely falls apart.
