Well, this shoots a great, big gaping hole into the ‘white privilege’ claim, doesn’t it?
Proponents of so-called ‘white privilege’ maintain that there is systemic oppression of non-white people, and that’s why they need ‘equity‘ rather than ‘equality‘. Equity, though it sounds like equality, isn’t the same thing. It’s not treating all as equal but instead giving a ‘leg-up’ to those that need that extra help to achieve the same results.
If you look up ‘Equity vs. Equality’ online, you’re bound to come across this set of images:
The social justice proponents would say that treating everyone as equals means that some will get things that they don’t need, some will get just enough, and others will still be left short. (Pun not intended.)
And it certainly looks fair, right?
The problem with using that particular visual is that although it’s sympathetic, what it advocates for is the suppression of one group of people in order to offer advantages to another. And that is definitely not the way our Founders had intended government to behave.
Government is not the one to distribute rights to individuals or groups, rather, according to the Founders, it is the role of government to protect man’s natural rights that were given to him ‘by nature and by nature’s God’.
But what happens when the progressive social justice people are proven wrong?
What if it turns out that all of the Affirmative Action and these ‘leg up’ programs haven’t made us all able to get what we need as in the above illustration, but have actually given distinct advantages to particular groups and crippling disadvantages others?
Here’s the truth bomb:
It seems that Affirmative Action disadvantages Asian and white students.
Will they advocate ‘equity’ for whites in the workplace and Asians on college campuses?
Perhaps if we had some real journalists that report facts we could stop with all the race-based ‘privilege’ nonsense and deal with the real problems that our fellow Americans face.

What Jim Acosta, Rachel Maddow and the Rest of The Media (D) STILL haven’t figured out yet is why we call them ‘Fake News’.
Let’s spell it out for them. In a shirt.
Because you know they won’t be able to figure it out on their own.
There’s a ladies’ version…
And a men’s version…
The problem isn’t just the lies they tell…
It’s the truth they DON’T tell…
And the opinions laced right through them.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
