I understand that you're being purposefully sarcastic, but how exactly does "white male privilege" equate to an ability to defend oneself? Race and sex had nothing to do with the story besides act as basic descriptors of both the offenders and the victims. Don't you think that instead of spinning a tragedy to serve your own agenda (which, to be honest, seems rather hateful) you could comment on the actions of the security teams of KFC and the casino? Even speculating on the reasons behind an unprovoked attack, or ways to defend yourself in that situation. You could talk about the causes and dangers of heart palpitations. Any of these things could be infinitely more useful than smugly asking "where's his white privilege?" Better yourself.
