Well?

If a white person cant understand what it is like to be black then a black student will never understand what the Holocaust was like... for example.

Progressives just soiled their pants of the thought of a gay, black Jew.

I know that you're trying to take the piss out of the other thread; I just think you've just done it poorly.

You just confirmed it... so... yeah.

Both are faulty prmises.
No, the other thread compared two racial groups. Your thread is comparing a racial group to a sexuality and a racial group to a religion/culture. It's a bad comparison.

More importantly can they understand what it's like to be a white privileged male... the guilt.

The comparison is that they are both flawed. White people can understand what it is like to be poor and treated badly because that is not mutually exclusive to black people. Look... you dont get it. I understand.

Whites can also understand what it was like to die at Auschwitz even tbough they live in L.A.

I am guilty of being a non-privileged white male.

You're still making terrible comparisons. It's better to just state your point directly: human beings can understand what other human beings go through.
