Explaining White Privilege to a Broke White Person

Good article CK shared with me.  I "win" on all fronts and I have relatives and friends who are a mix of the other intersections.  And I will attest to the fact that I have benefited from being in the privileged categories (although I'd actual dual classify ability; it's not just physical, it's also intellectual - life is easier if you're smarter.  Doesn't mean you'll be reach or that someone who isn't smart won't be.  But many things will be easier). There are folks in those intersections that exceed me by magnitudes in my opinion - but they absolutely work for it and overcome a lot of crap.
