These comments popped up on Facebook in response to a recent post about how President Obama isn’t trying to tear that country apart and how his comments about Trayvon Martin weren’t reprehensible.

I’m getting awfully tired of having to explain to white guys like me that a) your own personal experiences are not the same as everyone else’s personal experiences; b) it’s pretty hard to empathize with someone who’s different from you if you’ve never spent any time talking with them about their experiences; or c) not everything is always all about you.
