    Entitlement Disorder: The Colonial Traditions of Power as White Male Resistance to Affirmative Action -- Hall 34 (4): 562 -- Journal of Black Studies


    Entitlement Disorder
    The Colonial Traditions of Power as White Male Resistance to Affirmative Action
    Ronald E. Hall

    In the aftermath of Western colonization, White males have regarded previously colonized populations as less than equal in negotiating quality-of-life issues. By tradition, quality of life in America is the recapitulation of a colonialworld order. Despite government statistics to the contrary, White males are adamant about the unfair advantages of affirmative action for Black Americans. In objections to affirmative action, the perspectives of White male conservatives are distorted by power and sense of entitlement that manifests as entitlement disorder. Entitlement disorder is a need to dominate in whatever venture being considered. To know the functions of entitlement disorder will facilitate democracy by enabling Black Americans the same rights to quality of life as extended to White males via affirmative action during America’s preunion, industrialist era.

    Did you just accuse Whites of having a sense of entitlement while mentioning 'affirmative action' in the same paragraph?

    Do you not see the irony?
