Jonathan May returns to the Q after a long absence. And a perfect time for the return since Gary Weed, our friend, decides to trot out the White Privilege discussion now that we have a multi-cultural panel to discuss the topic in depth.
Mark starts out by asking Jonathan to explain the definition of white privilege so that he can set a baseline to see how things fall in line with the definition. But alas, Jonathan doesn't have a definition he has the common argument of "It just is that way and because you are the one doing it, you don't realize what it looks like".
At this point Mark starts to discuss how there are equally as egregious things that happen to other cultures including white people. Mark then decides to hone down on privilege in general. Can a white person who sees a rich person (no matter their race or religion) hold that wealth against them and use it as an argument to complain about the privilege of others. This doesn't go over well with Jonathan....find out why and see the fall out.
Finally the guys do talk about our friend Don Trump and his need to keep the government shut down while stomping his feet like a child. Well the shutdown lead to an amazing White House Dinner for the Clemson Football team, served with "Hamberders" and fast food. Plus the guys touch on R. Kelly and the latest from Soulja Boy! All this and much more on the newest Q!
