Certainly a lot to think about. I'm not white (last time I looked) - but I do practice a certain amount of opportunism and just blatantly asking for stuff - more politely and perhaps in a less entitled fashion, but I do nonetheless. Perhaps it's just that America still has a lot of race issues that makes it harder for a less privileged (maybe read 'white') to jump the barriers.

Definitely a lot to think about. There are likely economic class issues at play, too.
