Thankfully, times have changed. We now apply the words of the founding fathers to all men (yes, even women!), which I think we'll agree is a very positive change for our society.
There's only one problem.
While it might make us feel all warm and fuzzy inside that everyone has supposed rights now, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, religion, class and any other individuating factors, the stark reality is that we're not all equally disposed to actually engaging those rights. Perhaps our 2nd Amendment Right to own and carry arms is the most obvious example of this, as Jon Stewart and his team so masterfully demonstrated in an episode earlier this month.
I give you: the White Privilege of the 2nd Amendment.
