"It's not easy being white"

Re: "It's not easy being white," Barbara Kay, National Post, 07 April 2010.

The late Susan Sontag neatly summed up our current anti-white Zeitgeist when she wrote that “Mozart, Pascal, Boolean algebra, Shakespeare, parliamentary government, baroque churches, Newton, the emancipation of women, Kant, Balanchine ballets, et al. don’t redeem what this particular civilization has wrought upon the world. The white race is the cancer of human history.” (Source: Partisan Review, Winter 1967, p. 57.)

The Zionist Barbara Kay shouldn't complain too loudly about how hard it is to be white, since it's that proverbial white liberal guilt predicated on Sontag's world view which after 1948 moved the West to finance and militarily sustain the garrison state of Israel, to the point where Israel is today an undisputed regional nuclear superpower - one that controls the land and life of millions of brown people subordinate to it. 

Surely, the irony of all this is not lost on Ms Kay?
