"victimhood is the new hotness right now"

Dear Rosanna Arquette:

I don’t know if you were just feeling extra woke when you tweeted out a bizarrely self-hating statement on Wednesday, but your “apology” for your whiteness felt so wrong to me on so many levels. Here are your own words:
“I’m sorry I was born white and privileged. It disgusts me. And I feel so much shame.”
...Rosanna, you are fearfully and wonderfully made. Your life is a gift. Your experience is yours alone and your perspective can be given by none other than you. No one loves like you, laughs like you, cries like you…no one is you. It doesn’t get much more special than that. Aside from that, you are insanely talented and physically beautiful to boot. You also have managed to carve out a very lucrative living doing something most Americans can only dream of. You are living the dream!

You seem to think complaining about your circumstances will engender you to poor people and minorities. All it does is make you look ungrateful....
