I too am black, and attended a prep school on scholarship. It was all girls, so honestly I didn’t deal with racism as severe as all that.

But…when you’ve gone to prep school, it’s easy to fill in the blanks of exactly how the Ford Kavanaugh scenario went down — it’s just not that unusual, in that culture. Privileged white boys get into all kinds of shenanigans-and no one ever checks them unless there is some severe damage…if Ford had ended up dead…if someone’s house had actually burned down, well then there may have been consequences…I stress may.

Destruction of others wealthy people’s property is about the only rule a young privileged white boy can’t break. He’s certainly inclined to be a little rapey, almost expected to be racist…I mean what is white male elitism about anyway? Exactly those things.
