We’re told that today’s college kids all march lockstep with the new ideologies. How true is that, really? One interview shines some interesting light on that.
Savana Hernandez, of Turning Point USA, took her microphone to the college campuses and had some real conversations with students.
One short interview, in particular, caught fire.
Savana’s approach was simple. She approached the conversation with exactly the approach Socrates modeled for us all those years ago — asking follow-up questions about the initial answers.
Dave Rubin introduces this clip, explaining who Savana is, and we join the conversation already underway. The student is clearly on the defensive, acknowledging he is a white guy and she is the opposite and saying he would have different experiences growing up.
Without missing a beat she prompts: ‘how come’?
Stammers. Mentions white privilege…
‘What privileges do you have that I don’t have?’, she asked.
He begins to make a tentative answer and then pulls back, couching it the limitations of his knowledge. Tries again to answer … and is stumped.
Hernandez throws him a lifeline. ‘Don’t you think it’s a problem in society when white people think they have more privileges than brown or black people?’
That’s the point in which the conversation starts getting genuinely interesting. He lets his guard down and begins to speak freely.
What he’s finally free to say, wasn’t free to say before, and the reason he gives for holding back in the first place speaks volumes about who REALLY has ‘power’ and ‘privilege’ in today’s society.
America could use more bold young women like Hernandez.
This would be a good start:
In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
