Scalzi on Whatever and the Straight White Male Difficulty Settings

I just read a piece by the Science Fiction writer John Scalzi on the Straight White Male and how we glide through life on the lowest difficulty setting. You can find the piece here: Straight White Male: The Lowest Difficulty Setting There Is Scalzi's point is we have it easy, because we are straight white males, and every thing comes easy for us. Just like the easiest difficulty setting on a computer game. That's so TRUE Scalzi. Typical, left wing, career artist viewpoint.
              The issue with these career artists is: they live in a fantasy word, and make up there own reality. And on the surface, that is the reality. Straight White Males have all the advantages. If you look at the statistics, without looking at any of the underlying causes: Straight White Males get all the advantages, and are handed everything on a silver platter. No matter that if you are a minority you can get all kinds of privileged business contracts from the government. No matter that if you are a minority, you get a free ride in many colleges and universities. No matter that in many states if you're an American Indian you don't pay any tuition in many schools. That is the world view of Scalzi. And many other media and artistic liberals.
         Why is that their world view? That is the bigger question. Why do they insist on blaming White Males for the ills of society?

Well they can't blame minority performance on minorities. That would be racist.

They can't blame female performance on females. That would be sexist.

They can't blame homosexual performance on homosexuals. That would be homophobic.

But you can blame Straight White Guys for ALL of societies ills. There is no bad word you can attach to calling out Straight White Guys. And when it's your job to bitch about something all the time, you need to find someone to blame.

The Nazis had Jews.

The KKK has blacks.

And Scalzi and his tribe of media liberals has the Straight White Guy. But I don't think they can make this stick. I think that history is going to give them some trouble on this one.
