Why Do White People Seek Black Privilege?

Good question, and the obvious answer is provided by Ben Shaprio: 

"There’s a reason that people like Dolezal, and now allegedly King, masquerade as black. It’s an advantage in the academic, media, and political arena – and that’s true on both sides of the political aisle, where Barack Obama would not have been elected or re-elected without being black, and whereDr. Ben Carson would be approximately as well-known asDr. Milton Wolf were he white."

"The question isn’t why King reportedly tried to pass as black. The question is why America keeps pretending that blackness is an unbreakable barrier, when in fact, it can be a tremendous asset."
