Equal rights for whites

A recurring theme I’ve been noticing is the expression from white people about losing their rights. It popped up frequently in discussions about retiring the racist University of Illinois mascot, “Chief Illiniwek.” And a recent article about Ryerson University mentioned two online student groups: “I’m a white minority at a Toronto University” and “Equal Rights for Whites.”

I think this is more about losing privilege. White people will fight it tooth and nail without recognizing that it’s a fight against equal rights.
