You are being overly sensitive about this and not thinking clearly or rationally about it. And you probably won't to this feedback, either, but once you trot out the "all" argument, you should recognize that you're leading with your emotions, not your rational side.

Overly sensitive?

Just like every other "Politically Correct" nuance out there to what is deemed "offensive"?

It's ok for others to be offended by whatever circumstance or speech, but not me because I'm a white male?

So I'm overly sensitive... yet anyone else that is offended by whatever act / verbage is justified.

The funny thing is that likeminded folks of your point of view don't see the reverse discrimination in this attitude. You just say I'm (we're) whining.

As for being offended by the term, and "supposidly not have accomplished anything"... it's taken my wife and myself over 20 years to reach a slightly upper middle-class income, and it was done all with hard work, continuing education, slowly climbing the ladder, and typical financial ups and downs. Anyone claiming it was "practically given to us" since we're white, needs to examine their own work ethics.

Yup, you still can't/won't read:

1) You're getting all personally insulted, again, over things NO ONE SAID! No one has said "all white men."

2) And no one said you didn't earn it, or it was given to you

But here you are, all kinds of offended over words never even said. Yes, people can be offended over what is said, but you're imagining things to be angry. This is how sensitive and emotional you are.
If you step back and go "hey, maybe this isn't what's being said," you'd be a lot less emotional and a lot more able to think clearly about it. Instead, you're very determined to be slighted and belittled by words not slighting and belittling you.

Music for the discerning:
