A white Democrat on the House floor tearfully apologized to AOC and other non-white Democrats for his white privilege that might have protected him on January 6th:

Here’s the video:
Rep. Dean Phillips: “I’m here tonight to say to my brothers & sisters in Congress & all around our country, I’m sorry. For I’ve never understood, really understood, what privilege really means. It took a violent mob of insurrectionists & lightning-bolt moment in this very room.” pic.twitter.com/PqnoBMiQDu

Phillips claims that when the mob was trying to get into the House chamber, he told colleagues to run to the Republican side so they could blend in. But then he realized that non-white Democrats couldn’t do that and now he’s crying and apologizing for his white privilege or something.
These people are so damn pathetic. They manage to find racism or white privilege in the most absurd scenarios when it has nothing to do with anything.
I think this guy really feels guilty because he feels like he was George Costanza…
