Re: “My white privilege, my brown grandchildren

This section of a US Federal Regulation seems to be subversive to White privilege?This is a section of the Federal regulations listing people who, by virtue of racial groupings get a step up for government contracting purposes.The next section, 104, will say these preferred people can have assets of 740,000 dollars and still be considered disadvantaged.

740K is a lot of disadvantage.

From the Code of Federal Regulations.
13 CFR 124.103 Who is socially disadvantaged?
(a) General. Socially disadvantaged individuals are those who have been subjected to racial or ethnic prejudice or cultural bias within American society because of their identities as members of groups and without regard to their individual qualities. The social disadvantage must stem from circumstances beyond their control.
(b) Members of designated groups. (1) There is a rebuttable presumption that the following individuals are socially disadvantaged: Black Americans; Hispanic Americans; Native Americans (Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, or enrolled members of a Federally or State recognized Indian Tribe); Asian Pacific Americans (persons with
origins from Burma, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei,
Japan, China (including Hong Kong), Taiwan, Laos, Cambodia (Kampuchea),
Vietnam, Korea, The Philippines, U.S. Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands (Republic of Palau), Republic of the Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Samoa, Macao, Fiji, Tonga, Kiribati, Tuvalu, or Nauru); Subcontinent Asian Americans (persons with origins from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, the Maldives Islands or Nepal); and
members of other groups designated from time to time by SBA according to procedures set forth at paragraph (d) of this section. Being born in a country does not, by itself, suffice to make the birth country an individuals country of origin for purposes of being included within a designated group.
