Good post. thanks.
I read yesterday in LA Times that black people don't sleep well. I'm sure that my being white doesn't help matters but they point out in the article that -
For centuries, whites have tacitly accepted — and even actively created — such inequality. Aboard the ships of the transatlantic slave trade, African captives were made to sleep en masse in the hold, often while chained together. Once in the New World, enslaved people were usually still made to sleep in tight quarters, sometimes on the bare floor, and they struggled to snatch any sleep at all while chained together in the coffle. Slaveholders systematically disallowed privacy as they attempted round-the-clock surveillance, and enslaved women were especially susceptible at night to sexual assault from white men.
The article, honest to God, goes on to explain that this why blacks appear to be lazy - they're just tired.
Are you phucking kidding me? I swear, I don't know why blacks aren't insulted by crap like this! How many ways can the left make up about blacks being inferior somehow?
Nothing to do with this post.
Way to skirt the issue, bud.
Cant hardly stand the idea that white privilege is real, can you?
Oh, sure it has something to do with the post. Did you watch video? It's all about how white people disadvantage people of color. The article I cited is exactly the same topic. And they are both baloney.
The liberals keeping their voter base dependent on the government does not make me privileged.
The inability of people to become independent from the government does not make me privileged.
Hard work and taking responsibility does not make me privileged.
The liberal attitude that I somehow owe anyone because of my white privilege is simply ludicrous.
You will never see beyond your own front door.
You're correct, you owe nothing to no one.
Except, maybe, understanding
But i doubt you will ever pay up.
I am through.
White privilege isn't about monetary gain
I know. It's about making people believe that white people have taken advantage of everybody else and that people of color are powerless to be successful on their own.
Shame on the left for working so hard to rob minorities of their self esteem.
Wrong again, bud
Maybe White Privilege should be called benefit of the doubted-ness:
Watch it in action:
Here's some more of the priviledge -
The man who got beat up is still winning though.
Yeah, after weeks of nursing his wounds I'm sure he's just fine, has no fear of being in public - probably joined a BLM group. I'm sure it was all for the best.
And it's that very attitude that makes thinking of 'white privilege' seriously, a ridiculous request. IMO
White Privilege doesn't mean you're going to win 100 percent of the time either, but by and large, there's perks that come with being white
I wouldn't deny that I appreciate having been born white. I know I'm privileged in many ways.
I was born as a natural born white citizen.
I'm a male - and I identify with the gender I was born with.
I'm able bodied - no handicaps.
I'm privileged that my first language is also our 'national language'.
I was born with an intellect and ambition that pulled me away from poverty I was otherwise destined for.
I am privileged to have married a privileged middle class female who fully expected me to provide earn a living to support a lifestyle we're comfortable with.
There's a million ways I experience 'privilege'. There's also a million more I do not experience. Same as you. Our responsibility in life is to make the best of the hand we are dealt.
I'm sorry if you are unhappy with 'your hand'. I had nothing to do with the hand you were dealt - or mine for that matter. I have my hands full taking care of my life, and there is nothing I can do to change your hand anyway. And, it gets irritating after awhile to hear over and over that your problems are somehow my problems to solve. I don't see it that way.
I wish you the best of luck. I will share what I can with you or anyone else. But be warned - when I'm told that it's not enough, and hear demands that I need to do more, give more, feel guilt, change somehow to make your way easier - my initial reaction is to not take it well and resist.
Gotta stay on top, huh?
OK, I see rational statement of reality is going nowhere.
What do you want from me CZAR?
Just kidding man, lol
