It’s Time For An Honest Conversation About White Privilege

78

As protests erupt across the world about police brutality against African Americans, racist borders around white countries, Donald Trump, and white supremacy, the majority of white people remain silent about these issues, and overwhelmingly support Trump in many polls. The reality is, white people have a deep seated guilt about slavery, colonialism, racism and the crusades, and they prefer to sweep the sins of their ancestors under a rug, rather than discuss them openly. But this silence breeds hate and division, and people of color are now demanding that white people speak openly about their past sins, and start doing something to make things right.

It’s understandable why the majority of white people cannot bring themselves to discuss their privilege and oppressive history openly. Their burning guilt is so strong that it must feel overwhelming, and their sins are so atrocious that they most likely fear the repercussions. But people of color are merciful and forgiving, and they are willing to spare white people who get on the knees, admit their sins and beg for forgiveness. One can almost feel sorry for white people willing to submit themselves to this level of humiliation, and maybe these people should be let off the hook somewhat, as long as they pay reparations taxes. However, the white people who still refuse to admit their privilege and continue to go about their business proudly, as if they owe nothing to millions of oppressed people of color, deserve no mercy. When people of color finally become a majority in Western countries, their justice will be swift and brutal against the whites who steadfastly refuse to check their privilege.

Whites need to start openly admitting how blessed they are, discuss their deep seated guilt, and start asking people of color how they can possibly make up for the terrible deeds of their forefathers. We need to have group therapy sessions, where white people get on their knees and cry about their sins, while people of color sit with their arms crossed, grilling them, asking them how they feel about their crimes, and saying snarky self-important things like “So what are you going to DO about it??”. Only through an open, honest dialog like this can we finally get to the bottom of this issue and settle race relations once and for all. But until whites are willing to do this en-mass, the protests will continue and the guilting will never stop.

I don’t know

A woman who claims to be a man, gets high on testosterone and then beats up women?

Isn’t that like male on female violence?

I thought progressives were against this?

Xe is a hero, but we’re talking about WHITE PRIVILEGE. WHY IS IT THAT THE PRIVILEGED DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT WHITE PRIVILEGE??? COULD IT BE RACISM???

The media is SILENT on WHITE PRIVILEGE. Whites don’t want to talk about it. WHITE PRIVILEGE AND THE GENOCIDE AGAINST THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN PEOPLE is the #1 issue today!11!1!!

trav777

Very on-point article, MDB. We desperately NEED a dialog about race in this country. And this dialog should consist ONLY of people of color hectoring whites.

Some white people might claim that hereditary guilt is a tribal thing for savage primitives, or even maybe a jewish thing or something, but we shouldn’t listen to these bigots. Tribal or collective guilt exists for whites and whites alone. Because slavery and whiteness. It doesn’t matter if black men sexually assault or rape tens of thousands of white women, that is just the actions of a small percentage and does not reflect on the broader race. However, the actions of a relatively small number of whites 300 years ago, or even 1000, DOES reflect on ALL whites, who are privileged, and yes that means even those in WV who lack cellphone service that even Africans have. This is just the way it is. Magnus Hirschfeld did not coin “racism” to apply to blacks, OK??!?! GET IT YET WHITEY?

Also, some whites might claim that even accepting something that seems patently absurd like hereditary or tribal guilt, that their ancestors did not participate in the slave trade which is second only to The Holocaust in creating white collective guilt. To these people we say “so what?” You are STILL WHITE. And whiteness is the disease oppressing people of color by its existence. People of color would not be reminded constantly that their societies are failures if white people weren’t around! So to someone from a Slavic country (the root of slave), you are STILL getting white privilege and “generational wealth” from slavery. This wealth has merely grown over time like magic, transforming itself into vast fiber optic networks, road systems, bridges, dams, etc., without ANY work or input by white people. The entire internet boom is an example of how “generational wealth from slavery” mutates into things like microprocessors and software without a white person even lifting a finger, thus perpetuating the legacy of slavery! Because tricknology.

In other news

The content of this web site has seen a marked reduction in “red flags” as uses acclimatize themselves to the social norms here.

Either that, or the admin worker has decide to stay home and binge watch Sesame Street before it is napalmed to get rid of all the sockpuppets residing there.

Everything about whites smacks of privilege. The law gives whites PRIVILEGES in HIRING, CONTRACTING, PROMOTIONS, COLLEGE ADMISSIONS, GRADUATE SCHOOL ADMISSIONS, EVERYTHING!!! People of Color are substantially disenfranchised by RACIST voter ID laws requiring us to obtain voter ID. People of Color with “bad credit” are stopped from obtaining loans for buying a house or starting a business. People of Color are physically attacked by RACIST police officers who, as we speak, are mounting a GENOCIDE against the AFRICAN-AMERICAN PEOPLE.

How are we supposed to succeed in a white world where education is off-limits to us and where we can’t start businesses or even vote to change anything??? How are we supposed to succeed when the POLICE are attacking us DAILY???

The ONLY SOLUTION is for PEOPLE OF COLOR to have our OWN COUNTRY, our OWN SCHOOLS, our OWN BUSINESSES, our OWN UNIONS, and our OWN SAFE SPACES, SEPARATE FROM THE WHITE WORLD!

END WHITE PRIVILEGE NOW!!!

I suggest you move to Zimbabwe

It is such a massive success that all the inhabitants have become trillionaires. It does have a few token whites but they are rapidly being forced to move to South Africa, which has not had a sheer GUTS to engage in the ethnic cleansing that Zimbabwe has.

You should get in on the gravy train, move there, and help Zimbabwe Become Black Again!

Black Lives Matter

This is such a great point. People act like Black countries have economic problems, but what about Zimbabwe??? Almost everyone there is a trillionaire — which goes to show that socialism, redistribution, and Black Economic Empowerment WORK. I’d love to move to Zimbabwe, and I may end up going there, but I feel like People of Color need me here for now to fight Donald Cheetoface Squirrelhead.

THAT’S JUST A COP-OUT

A TRUE BELIEVER in black empowerment would stop of nothing to make ZIMBABWE Black Again! Including moving there.

Face it! You are just an Uncle Tom. You talk big but when it comes to action you are a MISERABLE FAILURE.

Health care in the Muslim World looks like this

#islamophobic

Black Lives Matter

Camel urine is extremely healthy as a medicine. As I’ve noted before, all Muslims should be allowed and required to receive ShariahCare, opting Muslims out of the non-halal infidel healthcare system and instead requiring Muslims to drink a large glass of camel urine every day.

Anon

Halal refers to Muslim practice of butchering by first cutting the neck, after dedicating the animal to Allah as an animal sacrifice.

Normal camel urine is therefore non-halal as the camel has not had its head chopped off.

Camel urine released at the time of death after the proper sacrificial ceremony is performed, as the bladder “lets go”, is halal, but is of limited availability.

Beware of fakes, as there has been a counterfeit epidemic in camels urine as unethical medicinal shop owners use their own urine, to either dilute the “‘real shit” or as a complete substitute.

What an unfortunate situation for the whites. They would have done the reparations, but they work for slave wages, in the plantation run by Gates, Soros, Al Gore, and a few others.

The German whites would have done the reparations, but what I hear is that they are still gathering wood to cremate the 6 million jews who died in Nazi prisons.
Ask the (east) Indians, it takes half-a-ton of wood to properly cremate a body.

Lets not forget about the evils of colonialism

Why after that evil white man ended his cursed abuse of the black man, life expectancy dropped in most of Africa.

In much of Africa, today it is a miracle to break 40.

and of course much of this is the fault of the German people as they voluntarily vacated their colonies in Africa after WW1.

Also don’t forget the missionaries. They offered much higher life expectancy, eternal life, in exchange for land.

“When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said ‘Let us pray.’ We closed our eyes. When we opened them we had the Bible and they had our land.” – Desmond Tutu

So the blacks returned the Bible and took back the land, and the higher life expectancy offered by the missionaries is no more!

So sad!

Based on comments I see here some of you are Privileged whites and no matter how much you attempt to denounce that privilege you will always have your white bias.

I am calling on Accredited Time to create a No Whites Allowed Safe Space specifically for people of color where they can organize and make comments with out being over lorded by you colonizers.

I also don’t like thinking about the possibility that one of your vile white mouths may have been on the drinking fountain before a person of color so I will be trying to come up with a solution on that. Perhaps we will place white only fountains next to the transgender restrooms.

I know that I’m a mouth breathing white male which is the equivalent to a Pre-Cambrian single cell organism, but I am wanting to learn how to evolve my beliefs and PC-ness. Please be patient while I figure out how to check my privilege. It currently makes no sense to me what the fuck that even means.

It’s like a prostate check. Look down. If your skin is not brown you have white privilege. Whites treated people of color bad for 800 years so now it is time for them to treat whites the same way for the next 800 years. You have to just accept it.

Dear Students4Justice –

We received your request to develop and staff a Blacks-only facility on the campus of the University of Michigan. Unfortunately, an initial review by our General Counsel discovered that implementation of your proposal would violate the Civil Rights Act. As a result, we will not proceed with your recommendations at this time.

We value inclusion and diversity on our campus, and we encourage Students4Justice to continue efforts to make our campus more inclusive for our Black students and staff. To continue progress with your goals, we also encourage you to reach out to your local Republican congressman to introduce a bill to repeal the Civil Rights Act.

We look forward to working with you in the future and we value your contributions to campus inclusion and diversity.

Sincerely,

University of Michigan Adninistration

Wonder how WP is doing the “Flagging” On Here, or does the mod/site owner simply go through and label posts? It seems interesting that the flagging serves as a highlight, should be able to filter out that which you assign a meta tag to, so to test the filter I’m a self loathing Jew and we all love money.
