A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both.

Sorry I'm late but I'm busy, so will be brief.
WHITE is one of those words that doesn't say much, but kind of says everything. For most people, the opposite of WHITE is BLACK. For just as many, the absence of BLACK is WHITE. It seems that BLACK somehow sullies WHITE. Conversely, WHITE somehow enriches and improves BLACK. WHITE makes BLACK a little less menacing.
That seems stupid to me.
WHITE is WHITE, BLACK IS BLACK and BLACK is WHITE and WHITE is BLACK.
