A World Without White Privilege

#NoDambsForWhiteness

POC across social media have been having a field day with the news of Otto Warmbier's death.  Now, for those of you who are like, "Um...who dat?", Otto was the White dude who went to North Korea, stole a government poster, and was sentenced to 15 years hard labor.  Come to find out, he spent his first year and some change in a coma, and was medically evacuated, only to die once he returned to the States.

And the White tears haven't stopped flowing since.

First of all, people need to stop talking about the poster.  This was never about the goddamn poster. Otto's crime was not theft, it was traveling to a country where he wasn't really wanted in the first place and then flexing his white privilege.  He assumed nothing could go wrong and if it did, nothing bad could actually happen to him, because he was White and an American citizen.

It just so happened that North Korea didn't give a fuck.
