Objectivity does not have a white skin

A thought provoked by reading ‘Objectivity does not have a white skin‘ by Alexander Blum:

If there is no such thing as objective truth and the validity of a statement is solely determined by the social status of the group the person making it belongs to – the lower the status, the more valid the statement – then if white males are eventually marginalised, as progressives hope to make them, statements made by, say, me, will become valid in virtue of the low status enjoyed by white males.
