Why is "white upper class" a "criticism"?

You're supposed to feel guilty for being rich, these days. Specially if you're white. Double that if you're a male.

Fortunately, if there's something you should feel guilty about, you can complain about a liberal conspiracy to sooth your conscience.

It's a criticism of the article for speaking over-generally based on a narrow experience, not of the author's lifestyle.

It shouldn't be, but that's the tone people have when talking about it.
