What ‘Check Your Privilege’ Means

by Ramesh Ponnuru

At Bloomberg, I argue that Tal Fortgang’s critics are missing the point.

Sometimes they miss their own point. Mary Elizabeth Williams, a writer at Salon, says that Fortgang is only imagining that anyone has asked him to apologize for his privileges; a few sentences later, she complains, “Just what the world needs — more unrepentant affluent people.” So he isn’t being asked to apologize, just to repent?
