Looking for an article about how white men can get away with things.

Several years ago I read an article by some guy who talked about how he just stopped asking permission and started doing things -- going to work parties that weren't where he worked, or a bar mitzvah he wasn't invited to, and how he never got into trouble for it and was teaching his son to do the same. This amount of detail has proved to be impossible to google for. Does anyone remember it? It was roundly mocked by people who are not white men.

If it's the guy I'm thinking of, he also pretended to be a DJ and got into some exclusive party (they also let him backstage and on the tour bus). I think it was written for Vice magazine, but I can't find it in the archives. I do remember the backlash, it was pretty harsh and (mostly) well-deserved.
