I’m sure most of Professors Li’s students are REQUIRED to purchase her books - like her biography of Toni Morrison:

http://www.amazon.com/Toni-Morrison-Biography-Greenwood-Biographies/dp/0313378398

“The first African American woman to be honored with the Nobel Prize in Literature and the last American to receive the award, Toni Morrison has produced some of the most unforgettable writing on the African American experience ever published. In awarding her the 1993 Nobel Prize in Literature, the selection committee noted that Morrison ‘gives life to an essential aspect of American reality.’”

I find the fact that this woman is sitting on the faculty of a major American University, and using that as a soapbox to perpetuate this bs, very offensive. Ms. Li would do well to acknowledge to herself and her readers that Asians far outnumber Caucasians in the world, and make up over 50% of the world population.

The high-water mark for Caucasians was around 1950 when they were ~28% of the world population. It is projected that Caucasians will be less than 10% of the world population by 2060 (and remember - not all who count as Caucasians are ‘white’).

I'm so sick of hearing about ‘white privilege’. The one overwhelming privilege whites now have is the privilege of being blamed when things don't go as well as desired for non-whites.
