There Is Nothing Funny About White Male Privilege

Poor Newt Gingrich.

It must be hard to live without a sense of humor.

Robert De Niro, on the other hand, recently told one of the funniest jokes I’ve heard in a long time.

Via TPM:

Newt Gingrich is incensed about a joke by actor Robert DeNiro at a fundraiser attended by Michelle Obama for the president’s re-election…

“Callista Gingrich. Karen Santorum. Ann Romney. Now do you really think our country is ready for a white first lady?” DeNiro said. “Too soon, right?”

Sadly, TPM also reports that a spokeswoman for Michelle Obama has told NBC that the joke was inappropriate.

There is NOTHING funny about white male privilege.
