I worked hard to get here

I get that yes in theory as a white male I have a head start in life, but I most certainly did not have it handed to me on a silver platter. I worked hard to get into college and am still working hard to make the massive student loan debt worth it when I get a good job. I would not even be in college if it was not for a small (and I mean less than close to covering 4 years of college) account left to me that covers the holes left by loans, grants and scholarships. I understand that concern for non-whites and non-males is important, hell I support it. But please don’t forget that just because a guy is white, that does not mean he does not need help or that he worked any less hard to get where he is.

    I hear what you’re saying and appreciate it, but most minorities can’t even accumulate wealth to leave anything behind to their families.

      So…what? Does that make what he’s saying invalid? You just proved why what he’s saying is important by totally glossing over his point.
