Where Scalia Got It Right

By the way, I should have mentioned that Justice Scalia was right about the concept of racial entitlement. He just forgot which race this concept has worked for in the United States. We usually just call it white privilege. Somehow I doubt Scalia would be comfortable applying his racial entitlement idea to the group to which it actually belongs.

The Possessive Investment in Whiteness by George Lipsitz and "Whiteness as Property" by Cheryl Harris are good resources on this topic.
