White Supremacist Group "Public Enemy No. 1" Joins the Aryan Brotherhood

In my own privileged academic setting I often have students tell me that, in their experience, discrimination and racial hatred are generally a thing of the past. My reaction usually begins with guarded relief about how lucky it is to meet a young person who hasn’t been wracked by racism. Then the sentiment often turns to anxiety about how privilege seems to protect those with the least to lose while scores of others are left to confront their experiences in isolation. When those whose experiences prove to them that race-based hatred is a fact of life and still manage to dodge enough bullets to finally arrive in privileged academic settings, the double-consciousness of the experience, the awareness of a lived reality not acknowledged (if not outright dismissed) in the academy, makes far too many retread unnecessary emotional loses.
