Now: this is an example of white privilege. If you’re in any other category than “white man”, you’re likely to have a much more difficult time doing this.

Oh I agree about the privileged part but “white male privilege” is something a little different than that.

Let’s say you make up a story about your past. Fake a resume. Get a haircut that fits the specifications for “rich guy”. Buy good secondhand clothes at a discount price. Get them tailored to fit you. Get a nice pair of used shoes and shine them up.

You practice smiling in the mirror and shaking hands.

You decide to tell people that you’re part of a revolutionary startup that they will want to be on the ground floor of.

You polish your story. You start making appointments to see venture capitalists (angel investors, whatever they’re called). They see you. You make your sales pitches.

Now: this is an example of white privilege. If you’re in any other category than “white man”, you’re likely to have a much more difficult time doing this.
