At Seattle University, we challenge our students to engage in the difficult issues of the day with an open mind, respect differing viewpoints, discern the moral choices involved and act for the greater good.
I took this Jesuit approach to heart after being asked to keynote Seattles annual Martin Luther King Prayer Breakfast in January. My instructions were as a white person to speak to white people about the system and culture of white privilege in our country, which oppresses blacks.

So does black supremacy.
I left Seattle for rural KY seven years ago. We love it. Interestingly, a lot of our facebook friends in Seattle, be they conservative or liberal, are seriously thinking of getting out of that liberal cesspool.
What really shocked me is that my oldest daughter is coming out to see us in a couple of months and she and her husband, both quite liberal, are seriously considering moving here and will be checking out opportunities in the area. I think, honestly, they are becoming significantly less liberal.
They live within walking distance of the Market street strip in Ballard and their rent on a small home would buy you a literal mansion here.
Is that the new term for "dumbass" or "lying crapweasel"?
I can't keep track, crazy kids and their mod hippy lingo.
This priest sure is a JOKE.
I agree. People claiming there is such a thing as “white privilege” does diminish all of humanity...
Pssst. The most privileged amoung us are blacks.
Use traditional African medicine in the ER instead of the White Mans ways.
The school that changed its mascot from Chieftans to Redhawks years ago just in case someone would be offended in the future. I don’t know if anyone ever complained.
My instructions as a Christian are to speak to ALL people about our absolute need for the saving grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
You better hope so. Otherwise they are very likely to immediately start trying to recreate the leftist sh!thole they left in your new home town.
Does protecting pedophiles from prosecution and transferring them to other parishes diminish our humanity ?
Please send us faithful priests, and protect us from the intellectual and spiritual depravity of such as this man.
Seems like you can’t swing a dead cat by the tail without hitting a bad priest.
A lot of my friends are red hawks, and on behalf of them I am both offended and outrages by this replacement mascot...
White Okie Kentucky Episcopal? Define your acronyms.
My parents have six (white) daughters. Four out of six of us have been physically attacked by black men in separate incidents in different American cities. I do not hold all black people responsible for the actions of the six black individuals who jumped us/held knives to our throats, etc. (The men number six because two of us were attacked by two men at one time.) So, why are ALL white people “privileged”, according to this priest? Essays such as this one do nothing but inflame people on account of their (the essays’) stupidity and blatant unfairness.
I find it impossible to be concerned about a group that does and has done little but tear this country apart. Nevah happen, GI.
Same here. Left Seattle 2007 for rural North Dakota. Was an amazing breath of fresh air. Monster culture change too from flaming liberal to traditional conservative.
“White privilege”....you mean a far greater chance that whites have an in home father, that he works for a living, that he is not drug addicted, that the children stay in school?? That “white privilege”?
