  • Not actually sure if I would describe the issue at hand as white privilege. Not sure what race dude is. It's more about the elitist mindset. The modern day social caste system and how some people like to define themselves and others wthin it's parameters...people of all colors engage in this..

  • Maybe I was skimming, I thought it was okay for white students to drink in the park, but not other races...seems classist is more accurate after rereading
