White privilege is freely expressing frustration and anger without worrying that you might be reinforcing negative stereotypes about your race.

Bite The Bullet: Black-on-Black Violence My father once told me that the strongest weapon a true man had was his word if used correctly. And a coward’s strongest weapon was a gun if used at all. Heh… That’s funny coming from a man who wielded an M-24 for over 20 years in the Army. But my old man did so to protect me and my family. He was no coward. But in the course of my short life, I’ve run across a lot of cowards. I’ve been shot two times. I’ve been shot at more times than I can remember. I’ve been stabbed, kidnapped, left for dead, and probably the most self-esteem crushing thing that has ever happened to me was at the age of thirteen, I was thrown out of a third story window by this man I hardly knew because he had taken one too many shots of speed. I landed on the hood of a car, and the only thing I could think of as I stared up into the beautiful autumn sky was… Why am I not dead yet? Had I magically become a thug by being shot? Did music start playing? Did women come out? Was I proud of these “accomplishments”? No. and when I say “no” I mean. Hell. No. The “tough guy” acts that most of us black men have been taught to portray have gotten most of us in situations similar as mine and apart of things no sensible person would want to be in. I wasn’t a part of a gang, I didn’t run the streets, but I can’t say I was a helpless bystander either. I was simply going with the flow of things; a person in the wrong place at the wrong time. If you have to resort to violence to fix your problems, you disqualified yourself as a man. You’re a selfish coward. The means of taking another person’s life only makes you a murderer. And if you’re black, you can already count yourself out in this messed up judicial system we have in the US. Don’t even put yourself in situations like that. Trust me on this one. It’s not fun. You can only end up one of two ways. Holding the gun. Or staring down the barrel of one calling on Jesus when you didn’t want nothing to do with him before-hand. Your choice I guess. Loving your fellow man is a lot simpler…
