The phrase “white privilege” is being slung around in the minority community like chimpanzee poop. So what the heck is “white privilege” anyway you say? Well, here are a few examples according to “The White Privilege Conference” website:
— Assume that most of the people you or your children study in history classes and textbooks will be of the same race, gender, or sexual orientation as you are
— Assume that your failures will not be attributed to your race, or your gender
— Not have to think about your race, or your gender, or your sexual orientation, or disabilities, on a daily basis…
Yeah, it gets better. Here is what their website has to say about how their organization is going to create change,
Whites need to acknowledge and work through the negative historical implications of “Whiteness” and create for ourselves a transformed identity as White people committed to equity and social change…To teach my White students and my own children…that there are different ways of being White, and that they have a choice as White people to become champions of justice and social healing.
In a video released by none other than the ACLU, SNL comedian and ACLU Ambassador Sasheer Zamata tries to show what she feels the ills of being black are in a very “black lives matter” sort of way.
The video shows a white man and a black woman walking down the street. The white man seems to be confident and has a easy time, while Zamata gets various forms of harassment thrown at here.
She gets cat-called, a magazine thrown at her suggesting she should choose between her job and being a mom, and even gets patted down by a white police officer for “fitting the description”.
All this goes on unbeknownst to the clueless white guy. He tells her he “gets it, I struggle too”. To which she replies “You may struggle but you must realize that our playing fields are unequal”. Zamata assures the white guy that having white privilege because of his race and gender is ok, but he must use it to help others.
The obvious “token” white guy has an epiphany, realizing that “some things are just unfair” and we can’t keep ignoring them. The video was met with outrage on Facebook. User Xiangyang Li said, “Complete and superficial bull*hit…don’t confuse earned privileges with inherited ones”.
This entire video is garbage. What does one say about the countless black NBA stars who are millionaires? What about the black rappers who are making millions off of their record contracts? Aren’t they privileged? What about Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and even Obama?
As a matter of fact, one could even argue that it’s a great time to be black. You have the ability to use the race card whenever it suites you. You don’t get a job, cry discrimination. There’s always everybody’s favorite, affirmative action, if you don’t get what you want.
What about “reparations”? Reparations for what? For something that happened centuries ago that we had nothing to do with in present day? Yes, it seems as though it’s a good time to be black. You can be a non-producer, and still get by. Don’t think for one moment, that blacks don’t have privileges.
A thug can steal from a store moments before a cop shoots him for attacking them, and somehow it’s the white man’s fault. Instead of dealing with the millions of kids living in the ghettos without a father because he is locked up in prison or just simply left his responsibilities behind.
Being born white has nothing to do with whether a person succeeds or not, but hard work and dedication do. It’s the content of your character, not the color of your skin that matters.
Focus on a solution to rise above the generational “plantation” mentality and end the senseless cycle of violence, poverty, and dependence on failed Democratic social programs.
