Personally, it's because such courses/lines of thought are pretty much exclusively used to justify racism against people who have less melanin in their skins.

Such courses/lines of thought often conflate 'white privilege' with 'Rich oligarch privilege' forgetting that if you weren't one of the Founding Fathers or a member of their social class (Rich, Landowning) life wasn't much better/different for you in early America than anybody else.

I will never feel ashamed of what I look like. The slaves my grand-cestors held had skin the same shade as their own.
