I loved this vid. It brought into focus how I felt watching Carly Fiorini on last Sunday's "This Week" dancing around her support of New York's controversial "Stop and Frisk" program. Although she doesn't think it's unconstitutional, Ms. Fiorini thinks we need to apply some "introspection and examination."
Gee, Carly, what pretty and polite words those are. They're so easy to say, particularly when you're not getting thrown against a brick wall while some cop shoves his hand in your crotch. But Carly never has to worry about that. Neither does her fellow "This Week" panelist Bill Kristol, which is precisely why they support something they perceive as keeping them marginally safe. After all, the cost in dignity and fairness is at someone else's expense.
News flash, Carly: if you can walk down Fifth Avenue without being accosted by law enforcement, the African American kid in the saggy pants behind you ought to be able to do the same thing.
White privilege indeed.
