    The executive branch of the USA is primarily white.

    This may surprise you, but the executive branch is composed of thousands and thousands of people, most of whom are white

    The executive branch is controlled by 1 person who just so happens to not be white. Furthermore those who are under him in the executive branch are more diverse than our population.

    No, the executive branch is LED by one person, but is CONTROLLED by laws and a constitution written primarily by white men.

    And those under Obama in the executive branch are primarily white.

    Denial of the fact (not opinion) of white privilege is -- at minimum -- indication of complicity in white supremacism as a fact on the ground.

    I completely get that the vast majority of "white" people do not ideologically endorse white supremacISM. However, white supremacy -- the empirically verifiable fact that people who are treated as "white" receive systematic privilege and live in a position of substantially better opportunities and unearned wealth and political power relative to nonwhite counterparts...IS INDEED logically the ethical responsibility of "white" people to overturn.

    Robert Jensen articulated this best: as it is clearly not in the interest of nonwhite people to establish or to maintain white supremacy, the ongoing existence and operation of white supremacy must necessarily be due to either the active desires or the complicity of "white" people.

    Most "white" people will readily tell you, if asked, that they don't personally want to maintain white supremacy...but such a question only deals with their intent. Despite genuine intent, the fact remains that white supremacy doesn't ask permission. Like any system of coercion and hierarchy, once it is in place, it takes no intentional effort on the part of the most of the privileged to maintain...simply going along with the dominant order is enough. Indeed, the universal human desire to think well of oneself, to avoid association with commission of great harm, actually creates an incentive for denial of such complicity. This, combined with growing up in an environment in which the privileged (on a given axis...in this case "race") are trained to not see their own privilege, leads to exactly the kind of dogmatic blindness and reactionary nonsense championed by the likes of FOX, bloggers like Breitbart, and overt white supremacists like Jared Taylor and David Duke.

    A clear question which cuts to the heart of this issue would be:

    who benefits -- materially, psychologically, and politically -- from the popular pretense that "white" people are not privileged?
    I've moved on to a better forum (scienceforums.net). Facts matter, and I don't have the time or energy for putting up with the pretense that they don't. PM me if you'd like me to get in touch with you when I'm done developing my own forum system, likely towards the end of 2013.

Equal enforcement of justice is not a priority of this administration. Open contempt is voiced for these types of cases."

    With Barack Obama history, he couldn't get elected to student council if he were white. Instead, he gets into the best school in the USa and becomes president, almost entirely because of his "non-whiteness".
