What's Even The Point of Being White?

Robert Alton, 56, a McDonald's employee from Fort Lauderdale, announced yesterday that he had sold his 'White Privilege Card' on the internet auction site, eBay, for the princely sum of $7.

"I decided to sell it even though it is 56 years old and in mint condition. It has never been used. To be honest, it has done me no good at all. I got nothing for free. No college grants, no food stamps, no free housing, or any subsidies. Nothing free. I had to work for everything I have. Not only did I have to work, I had to pay taxes, a lot of taxes. The card never got me a high paying job, a leg-up, or any other benefit. In fact, it has been a hindrance. Also, can you believe, not once did it help me get served quicker in a restaurant, find a seat on a crowded bus, or allow me entrance into plush members' clubs?"

Alton was pleased to receive $7 for his card, and hopes it went to a good home, but says he will never apply for another one.

"Waste of time, really," he said as he waited at the bus stop.
