This is a topic I’ve been covering quite a bit recently, but this is a specific argument I would love to share with you: the people who believe in white privilege are hypocrites. And in more than one sense.
First, the white people who believe in white privilege are hypocrites because, despite their seemingly “self-aware privilege”, they do nothing about it. For example, schools administrators in Canada are posting a series of white-shaming posters on school walls. One particular poster (the one above) depicts the superintendent of schools in British Columbia with the caption: “I have unfairly benefitted from the colour of my skin. White privilege is not acceptable.”
Aside from the fact that it’s an eye-rolling statement, it’s also a hypocritical one. Here, she seemingly accepts that “white privilege” is real and that she’s “benefitted” from it. But do you honestly think she’ll do anything to “make things fair”? Or to get rid of the “benefits”? No. In however way she believes she has benefitted from being white, I can tell you that she’s not willing to give that up.
If she believes she got her job because of her “white privilege”, there’s not a snowball’s chance in Hell she’ll feel guilty enough to resign. If her “white privilege” allowed for the salary she makes, she’s not going to feel guilty enough to take a big pay cut. If her “white privilege” has allowed her to live in a nice house (I don’t know if she does, but I imagine it’s decent), she’s not going to feel guilty enough to move to a desolate place.
All she’s doing is appearing to be “politically correct” in shaming herself for being white but she will never actually do anything to “rectify” herself. That’s why I call her a hypocrite. She believes in the idiotic concept of “white privilege” but would never actually do anything that would take away the “benefits” of her “privilege”.
Now, I also said that there was another way that they are hypocrites. The first way is more specific to white people, but this other way is more for anyone who believes “white privilege” is real, whether they are white or a minority (although I honestly don’t know too many minorities who believe in this. It might be a strictly white issue to be white).
The way they are hypocrites is that they disregard Martin Luther King’s speech entirely. Dr. King had a dream that his children (and, by extension, all people of color) would be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. Any person that believes white privilege is real entirely ignores that very concept.
For someone, anyone, to say that someone got where they got simply because of their race is to be racist themselves. It’s to be judgmental of someone else’s skin color. Anyone who says Trump is President just because he’s a rich, white man is both ridiculous and racist.
Why? Because if someone’s race or skin color is at the forefront of your mind, then you’re racist. And that’s an inarguable statement. If someone’s biggest issue with Obama was that he is black, then that person is racist. But if his biggest issue with Obama was that he is a communist, that’s not racist at all, although try telling that to any Leftist or anyone in the media.
To attack someone just because they are white is to be racist, even if the attacker is white themselves. I’ve already shared, in a previous article, the story of how Chuck Schumer won’t vote for one of Trump’s judicial nominees simply because he’s white. I’ll make the same argument here as I did in that previous article. Could you imagine the backlash against Schumer if the judge’s skin color was brown or black? Schumer said that the courts under Trump are “too white”.
Let’s replace the word “white” with the word “black”. I’ll even repeat a couple of sentences in my previous paragraph.
“… Chuck Schumer won’t vote for one of Trump’s judicial nominees simply because he’s black… Schumer said that the courts under Trump are ‘too black’.”
If you read that statement back to anyone on the street and omitted the name, they would agree 100% that it’s racist. So why isn’t it racist when it’s the other way around? Why is there no backlash against the Senator? Why is it ok for him to vote against someone just because he’s white?
And that’s not the only example of hypocrisy. Relatively recently, President Trump called Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) someone with a “low I.Q.”
What was Waters’ response? To call him racist. Speaking with MSNBC’s “AM Joy”, the low I.Q. Representative said: “This President… has been name calling. He’s been saying all kinds of things. And I certainly expected him to come out with some racist remark about me. So he did exactly what I expected him do.”
Trump called her an idiot and she showed everyone exactly how right he is. Why would she think he’s being racist? Well, aside from the fact that she believes anything that comes out of Trump’s mouth is racist, it’s the fact that she’s black. In her mind, Trump saying she has a “low I.Q.” is racist just because she’s black and goes by the assumption that all black people are dumb.
In her mind, the only reason Trump is saying she has a low I.Q. is because she’s black, not because she actually likely has a low I.Q. That line of reasoning comes from the belief that all black people are dumb. That’s the only way to tie race with intelligence in this case.
Alternatively, if she doesn’t have that fundamental belief that black people are dumb (and I, for one, believe she does), it could be that she believes her skin color should somehow keep people from attacking her politically whatsoever. And that’s equally as racist. If anything, that’s black privilege.
If she believes that just because she’s black, that she’s exempt from being attacked in this manner and anyone who does is racist for doing it, that’s black privilege.
And there’s no doubt in my mind that such an act would be equally as racist for any Hispanic. Let’s take, for example, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL). If he had been the one to be called someone with “low I.Q.” and he said that it’s racist, then you can logically conclude that he believes in some sort of Hispanic privilege. That Trump would be racist for saying he has a low I.Q. That he should be somehow exempt from being attacked just because he’s Hispanic.
Interestingly enough, that sort of thing doesn’t apply to conservatives or Republicans. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are both Hispanic and are viciously attacked by the Left (not always, since neither is their main focus: Trump).
Being protected by your skin color only applies if you’re a Democrat. How many people called Hillary privileged? She’s white too. How many people have called Pelosi and Schumer privileged? They’re white too. In their minds, these white people are excused from their privilege because they are adamantly against it, at least in speech, not necessarily in deed.
It all ties to the larger, never-ending hypocrisy of the Left. A white Canadian superintendent won’t face any sort of negative coverage from the media (not that many people care, really) because she’s attacking her own skin color. Which, again, begs the question: what would happen if you replaced the word “white” with the word “black”?
Could you imagine the outrage over a black superintendent posting a poster shaming him or herself for being black? Or could you imagine the backlash if the poster wasn’t about the fact that the superintendent is white but that she’s a woman and that’s what has benefited her?
Could you imagine the outrage over black people attacking other black people for being black?
How come there’s no outrage (at least from the media) over white people attacking other white people for being white? White folks are people too.
Now, there’s something to be seriously learned here. In the past, the Left would be hateful towards black people; enslaving them, selling them as property and treating them as such, and going so far as to fight to keep their “right” to own a person. I’ll quote you once again what former Democrat superstar Robert Byrd said about black people: “I am loyal to my country… but I shall never submit to fight beneath that banner with a negro by my side. Rather I should die… than see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimens from the wilds.”
Here, Byrd is equating black people to wild animals. So his hatred for black people is very clear. But today, that hatred is directed at white people (at least in speech, not in political deeds and agenda). White people are the new targets of the Left.
This leads me to further cement my belief that the Left hates absolutely everybody. They have, historically, HATED black people. They currently HATE white people. They hate men. They hate women (how else do you explain their support of a “religion” that treats them as less than garbage?) They hate EVERYONE! They see people not as people but as mere things to categorize. Things to own and rule over.
They see everyone else as being beneath them. So when someone who, in their minds, should be beneath them rises to the role of President as Donald Trump did, they are left infuriated and their hatred running amok. That’s my best explanation as to why the Left is acting the way they are towards Trump and his supporters. They see him as someone who should never have even come CLOSE to the highest office in the land that, in their eyes, belongs solely to them.
It’s not difficult to find the incessant hatred of the Left. To say that the Left is full of sympathetic, kind and loving people is to say a sick joke. They are anything but all those things. History shows us exactly who and what they are: the Party of Hatred. The Party of Evil. And the Party of Hypocrisy.
