The incredible lightness of being a white woman

So let’s get this straight. If you have a Ph.D. from Harvard, and you’re a neurobiologist, and if you have the extra added bonus of being a white woman, you can really accomplish a lot. Like killing your brother, holding up an auto body shop for a getaway car with the same gun, and (maybe) sending a pipe bomb to a medical colleague.

You can even punch a woman in the head for taking the last booster seat at a restaurant and only get sentenced to probation and an anger management class.

I wonder what else she managed to get away with, before she couldn’t get tenure in Alabama.
