This extends to most of the upper-middle-class-dripping-with-entitlement advice doled out by well-to-do white people about how to better live one’s life. It always ends by telling people not to work so hard, and to balance ambition with love and family, and to “get outside more.” All of which is fine, I guess, but these suggestions begin with two unspoken but much more difficult steps to accomplish: Step one: be white. Step two: be rich. Sure. Thanks! I’m saying all of this as an UPPER MIDDLE-CLASS WHITE PERSON. When the revolution comes, I should be in the first round of public executions, and my only hope is that the rabble spare me because I’m “fun at dinner parties.”
