Siri show me white privilege.

If small, lily-white ag states -- wildly unrepresentative of broader US demographics -- aren't at the center of attention for several months at the beginning of every presidential race ... they are "silenced."

"If I'm not on top, I'm oppressed": every fading hegemon's lament.

Meanwhile, nobody gives a hot damn about, eg, California throughout the *entire presidential race*, despite lots more US citizens living there than in f'ing Iowa. Is California "silenced"?
