Radio talk show host Rick Roberts speaks during his program in Dallas on Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2016. Roberts dismisses the concept of white privilege. His parents were never in his life, he says. He was left in the care of grandparents and, when they grew too old, he was emancipated at age 15 and landed at a boys' ranch. "I fell on my ass more than I can count," the 53-year-old says. "I didn't feel real privileged at the time." He scraped his way up, earned an MBA and law degree, and before starting in radio 22 years ago, made a career negotiating offshore oil contracts.
