For those of you who haven’t heard/seen the John McCain concession speech, I like to think of it as “what losing white privilege sounds like.”
Tim Wise wrote about white privilege and the role that it played in the election. You can read my entry on it here.
But for now, I think I’ll enjoy the droning sounds of Senator McCain, as he gracefully bows out…and hands over a little white privilege at the same time:
And, in all seriousness, it really was a good speech- and not because it was a McCain concession. My sincere hope is that our nation will come together- and that we ALL take part in making our country the best that it can be.
