This lawmaker said the Capitol riots showed him his white privilege when he tried to blend in with Republicans.

“I’m here tonight to say to my brothers and sisters in Congress, and all around our country, I’m sorry. I’m sorry. For I had never understood, really understood, what privilege really means. It took a violent mob of insurrectionists and a lightning bolt moment in this very room,” said Rep. Dean Phillips, a Minnesota lawmaker.
