The Huffington Post has an interesting article that explains how the police "assault at Spring Valley High" is just one example of how our School-to-Prison pipeline works. I'm not going to spoil it for you, but the demographics behind the numbers makes it clear that our nation clearly has a problem when it comes to dealing with issues of race, discipline, and justice.

This Tom Tomorrow comic - captured here - helps drive home the national disconnect around the issue of race and justice, especially when it comes to our constitutional protections ...

Whether it's being part of a "suspect class" from birth, or having your constitutional rights put up for debate because you're part of this suspect class, it's clear that "white privilege" is a discussion topic that America needs to take up - as this Upworthy clip suggests.
