The Shocking Truth About White Privilege

25

If you are a white male like me, you doubtlessly hate yourself every time you look in the mirror and see white hideousness staring back at you.  Such self-loathing is only healthy and right after all given everything in our history over the centuries.  Recently, I’ve found cause to hate myself even more and I wanted to unburden my burdens.

Here is the problem: the white man is not only a (male) person of color but a Person Of All Colors. What do I mean by this? Quite simply, the color white contains every single color in the rainbow. Blue, yellow, brown, pink, purple, red, orange…the white color contains every color. You can discover this for yourself by doing a simple science experiement and bending light through a prism like in the picture above.

In contrast, black is the only color that is not a color at all. Not a single one! You read this right, the white man has effectively ‘stolen’ EVERY SINGLE COLOR for himself and there was nothing left over. Just how racist is that? The world’s central banks would have to work overtime for centuries to be able to print enough cash for reparations.

To unburden my guilt, I have decided to empathise with People Of No Color (i.e. Those we currently and wrongly refer to as people of color) by blacking up and showing my allegiance.  I used to think this would be incredibly racist but, in truth, showing my white face in public is far worse as  it makes me complicit in hate crime. So, I thought…if my brothers cannot have color, why should I? It somehow feels odd rubbing shoe polish onto my face and yet it is also strangely liberating. Whilst I know my skin is an ugly white under the polish, I am making a stand by covering up my privilege. I can only hope that this unusual experiment works…I am headed out the door now to find some brothers and empathize with them.

Comment from Mrs. Puyloubier. My husband left the house a while ago in a state of agitation and should have returned home by now. If you see him, please let me know asap.

Impeach Trump.

No more whites in government.

Donald Trump is racist, orange freak, xenophobe – deport him to Siberia now.

As a white, I have been fighting these urges to ask black folks to sit in back of the bus. I hate myself for this and wish i could stop.

Recentyly I hired a yardman, selecting him based on his race and because he always said “oh yessuh” and “nosuh” so well and with a great southern accent. Im trying to flush out these racist feelings i have and understand that black lifes really matter.

It worked for Rachel Dolezal – for a while.

Here is a video to help progressives cope with Trump::

Just remember, “Love trumps hate.”

Also, “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon.”

Thanks BLM, I feel a lot better after watching that. Now I know I’m not alone in hating Trump and getting triggered by his racism, sexism and transphobia. Let’s stick together and stop this country from falling victim to hate.

I could be the only one not reassured by these fine young people. I am way less intelligent and more emotional than they are, and I am scared. I feel alone.

Black Lives Matter

Everyone is scared. Trump is already planning mass deportations. Undocumented criminals are afraid that they might get thrown off public assistance and might not be able to rob gringos any more. Muslims are afraid that Trump may send goons to stop their jihadist operations at mosques. Trannies are afraid that ObamaCare will be repealed and that they will no longer be able to afford taxpayer-funded sex change operations.

White Privilege is on the march in all its fascistic terror. You are not alone.

I need help. Im serious!

I went to a Blacks Lives Matter rally and all I could think was theyre lives dont really seem to matter any more than brown lives and that indicating one race is different is racist.

I kept looking at my friend and thinking ehy does she hate me brcause im white. Then i realize she doesnt see me she sees my skin color, the color of people that held dominion over the African people either by taking them by force or buying them from other African tribes.

Im really feel guilty because i dont feel guilt for things that people did that i have never met. But that is the curse of being a white.

Black Lives Matter

Whites are a plague. The oppression has to end. You need to feel guilty for your crimes.

Puyloubier (@Puyloubier1)

Try blacking up and ‘blending in’. Highly recommended, although expect to get some strange looks, colorful (if you’ll pardon the pun) language and the occasional violence.

You DO need help. Try therapy, where you can work through your deep, unprocessed white guilt and start to feel the pain that your race has inflicted on people of color. It’s time for white people to seriously check their privilege and start paying reparations and begging for forgiveness, and then people of color will THINK about whether they forgive you or not.

Hi – rest of the planet here – doesn’t work that way in the real world, buttercup. America seems to have turned into a haven for soft weak and excuse-ridden angsty children

If you feel like me that you still need to hate yourself more than you already do, this article will help:

Excellent article Puylobier! Although I have some reservations about painting myself black, as this could be seen as cultural appropriation of a victim group, which is not permitted. One thing we can all agree on is that white people need to humiliate themselves, feel and express white guilt, and start paying reparations. It’s one thing to beg for forgiveness and admit your guilt, but how much have actually PAID in reparations? Where is the money? White people need to stop talking and start PAYING UP. It’s time!

Puyloubier (@Puyloubier1)

I now agree MDB, and it seems my experiment failed and was not appreciated by the very people I was trying to be an ally to. On a positive note, I set à personal best for the mile run so it’s not all bad.

I tried blacking up like you suggested and i think it worked. I decided to forget raising my kids, left my wife, quit my job and am trying to sell crack on the corner (not real crack, crackers without the er). Also i bought some pants and shorts that are way to big and let them hang down. Its rrally fun to run trying to keep my pants up. Im thinking of getting one of my front teeth capped also.

Im working on getting benefits and im sure it will be easier now that im “black”.

Thanks again cause my guilt seems to have gone away.

The worst oppression was electricity and the telephone, powered flight, the automobile. Horrible, horrible things foisted on black lives to kill and oppress them. These awful artifacts of the wanton evil white people have masquerading as a culture need to be relegated to the dustbin of history.

Check your privilege, people. Then check it again. If you want mind controlled flying black pyramids to come back you have to eliminate all of the whiteness from your life.

Science must fall. Africans can strike each other with magic lightning- can you??? So who are you to be forcing the world to have indoor plumbing and shoes?

Ok Pbier

Not sure what im gonna do. I was thinking there might be someway I could paid blacks back for all the things that white people ever did. I’ve heard people talk about making reparations like a payment to all those of color.

When I spoke to my conservative friends about this idea they said Hey we are already paying them back it’s called welfare.

Puyloubier your idea to black up to support or brothers was a great idea – but sadly it has spiraled out of control. There are redneck racist bigots impersonating BLM in very hurtful ways over here https://accredited-times.com/2016/11/16/a-light-in-the-world/

Help.

One day the “while privilege” calling crowd will grow up. It’s just something that happens if one matures. I am a man and I am white. I have a LOT of “stuff” and live well. I travel when I want, get up in the morning when I feel like it, and go to bed when I get tired. Is that all because of “white privilege”? No way. I grew up dirt poor and changed schools about every 4 months. There were no good examples for me to follow. Family blew apart when I was 6 and I had 4 siblings. I acted like many of the posters here until I was around 19 and then realized that there was an actual society that I had to function within if I wanted to have a good life and help others. So I got real and started to make my future my priority.

No one helped or gave me a damned thing. I worked hard, avoided anything that might hinder my ability to become a good husband, father, neighbor, and person. While friends were out partying and wasting money on useless junk, I saved, studied, used my creativity to create things and ideas, and took vacations a week at a time once a year. As my (soon-to-be) past friends gobbled up the latest and most trendy things, I paid a but more for quality items that lasted years longer than the trash they swooned over. When things got stuck at work because someone couldn’t or wouldn’t get their part done, I jumped in and simply did it for them (or convinced someone to help them get it done). I don’t whine or complain but jumped into things and accomplished things. I created and innovated when most others were crying and complaining and out getting hammered with booze or drugs.

Here’s the thing that might blow away some of you – I was and still am a pretty good looking guy that was never without a date if I wanted one. My circle of friends keeps getting larger and they’re closer than they’ve ever been. I rose from an actual “bottom of the food chain” in my chose profession to one of the top execs until I retired in my mid-50s. My friends include folks from eco-terrorists to Senators. I’m respected and all of my friends and their friends seek my advice and counsel. In sum, I’m a real person that just happened to pull himself out of poverty and rose to the top retaining compassion. Sure I’ll get onto sites like this at times and trash some idiotic article or comments, but in real life I’m just a normal guy.

So as far as white privilege, I have come to the conclusion that the entire concept probably only applies to some very tiny segment of society that are truly despicable. John Kerry and Hillary Clinton come to mind. So you can see why I get confused as to why sites like this worship them…

Pbier – it would seem that my morning intake of caffeine was insufficient today for me to “get it”. Good one – I fell for it hook line and sinker. You guys are pretty good at this! A slight change in perspective about this site and, well, hell it’s pretty damned funny! And even a little thought provoking. Thanks bud.
