Race has always been a big issue when it comes to Democrats. Historically, they have made numerous attempts at putting down black people. From denouncing their very humanity to passing the Dred Scott decision in the Supreme Court to keeping them from owning guns. But the Left has decided to shift from being racist against black people (outwardly, at least. They’re still very much racist against them) to being racist against white people.
Part of being racist against white people is pushing the ridiculous notion that such a thing as “white privilege” exists. More so, that “white MALE privilege” exists. That way, they cover both race and gender.
This issue was discussed by Steven Crowder, a conservative online figure, in his show “Change My Mind”, where he presents people on college campuses with a certain issue and challenges them to change his mind.
In his latest episode, titled “Male Privilege is a Myth (Second Edition)”, four different students are featured. Two females, one white named Marylin and the other Hispanic named Hannah, and two males, one black named Shawn and the other Asian named David.
Now, the episode is 50 minutes long, so I won’t talk about everything in it, but I’ll cover the important bits.
At one point, Hannah says to Steven: “Even if you don’t wanna look up the statistics, it’s not hard to see how many black men are in jail at larger rates than white men.”
This is not really something to dispute. It’s true, but Steven asks the most important question: “Do black men commit crimes at a higher rate than [white] men?”
It logically follows that if someone’s in jail, it’s likely because they committed a crime. That’s not always the case, but it’s the case most of the time.
Marylin, however, has other ideas, evident with her response: “Definitely not. That’s just not true.” Despite not offering any statistical evidence, she makes that definitive claim.
She goes further, saying: “I mean, I’m sure I could look [the statistics] up, but it’s definitely not true. It’s because racism is built into the system – the system is built against blacks – and that’s what racism is. That’s why there are more blacks in prison.”
I would like to point out that she was wearing a “Feel the Bern” cap during this episode, signifying her support for lunatic socialist Bernie Sanders.
The girls also had an argument with Steven over the Constitution and how it’s supposedly “designed” to benefit white men only, using the women’s suffrage as an example of a right that a minority group had to fight for in order to get more rights and that white men didn’t want to give them those rights, but were forced to. Steven then informed them that a majority of women at the time didn’t actually want the right to vote, given that the right to vote ties in to being possibly drafted into war. Eventually, they got the right to vote but without the draft mandate for women.
Of course, they completely forget the fact that it was white men who were in power at the time and it was them who were lawmakers. And once reminded, they simply claimed that the women, despite a majority being opposed to women voting, “forced” the white men to give them the right to vote.
Eventually, the two ladies left and Shawn, the black male, was invited to talk with Steven. Steven then asked Shawn: “Do you agree with what was just stated there as a black male?”
Shawn had an answer ready: “No.”
He then went on to say: “Well, first off, the statistics about, like, black crime and police brutality overly affecting black males – I mean, we have to look at crime statistics. So yes, black males are overrepresented in prisons, but black males are also overrepresented in crime statistics. So, black males are like six… or seven percent of the population… if you take all that into account, then you have to consider, ok, so why are they overrepresented in crime? And the reason why, I mean, in my opinion, a lot of it is economic, a lot of it is cultural, a lot of it is, you know, the opportunities available in their areas.”
He continues: “And people can make the argument that, oh, it’s because of white oppression. I don’t necessarily think it’s because of white oppression. I think it has a lot to do with the welfare state; I think it has a lot to do with Democratic policies and liberal policies pushing agendas upon black people instead of giving them agency and allowing them to make their own decisions.”
Quite the keen observation there by Shawn. He’s able to recognize that Democrat and liberal policies have been pretty destructive towards the black community and very imposing upon them.
I told you they had a history of being racist, and that racism is still, unfortunately, alive and well in the hearts and minds of the Left and their agenda.
Eventually, David was invited to join the conversation and he mentioned that he and a black friend both applied to USC. David had better academic records than his friend, but he was rejected from the school while his black friend was accepted.
Steven then talked with David about Asians essentially being locked out of universities due to supposed overrepresentation. He asked him what this sort of thing does for the relationship between Asian-Americans and black Americans. David replied, mentioning that academics are a massive priority in Asian culture (it may be a stereotype, but there’s truth to it). He compared and contrasted academic success between the Asian culture and “inner city” culture, where it’s essentially frowned upon to do well in school. He mentioned that differences in academic performance isn’t really about race, but rather, culture.
Shawn agreed, saying: “When you tell people that, you know, oh well you can’t do anything in life because you have this overlord above you, oppressing you, then, like, you’re not gonna have any optimism, you’re not gonna have any aspirations to achieve anything in life.”
And that really goes back to Democrat policy and agenda. The very welfare state is built for the sole purpose of discouraging people from being successful, saying that you’re gonna be just fine. That you don’t need to do well on your own because the government will take care of you.
The Democrats have been too successful in that, given their Nazi-inspired ghettoization of black communities in cities ruled by Democrats like Chicago, Detroit, Oakland and Compton.
And that’s the inner racism of the Democrat Party. But they wouldn’t be Democrats if they weren’t outwardly racist towards someone, and now their new victims are white people. White privilege and white guilt are utter malarkey. Whites are not preferred over minorities. The very reason they’re not considered a minority is because THERE’S A MAJORITY OF THEM! Can you really blame companies and businesses if the majority of their workforce is made up of the majority of the demographic population?
If businesses have a mostly white workforce, it’s because there are mostly white people in the country and they were selected with the belief they were the best people for the job. Choosing someone just because they are black is just as racist as not choosing them because they are black.
If white people statistically live better off than black people, who exactly do you think is to blame? It’s DEMOCRATS who are imposing their agendas on black people and making them POORER! Under Obama, we saw a MASSIVE rise in food stamp recipients. Under Trump, those numbers have significantly gone down, from roughly 44 million recipients in 2016 to roughly 42 million in 2017, a two million people drop.
And with the booming economy, I would expect those numbers to continue tumbling down. But you see my point. If black people are in a bad spot today, it’s entirely because of the same Democrat Party that has been keeping them down THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY’S HISTORY!
If there are more black people in jail, it’s because almost all of them are guilty of a CRIME! Otherwise, they are not in jail, are they? And there’s no disputing this. The very evidence exists IN OUR VERY OWN GOVERNMENT!
If black people are essentially automatically bound for jail, how then can a black man BECOME PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES?! Obama, aside from smoking weed, is not documented to have committed any crimes until AFTER he became President. That lack of a criminal history is what kept him out of jail. If they want to see less black people in jail, I want to see less black people committing crimes.
The criminal justice system is not built to imprison people who are INNOCENT! Granted, sometimes there’s an unfortunate soul who is innocent and sent to jail or prison. Those people have my condolences and are proof that our justice system is not perfect. But it doesn’t show that it’s racist.
Now, returning to white privilege and white guilt, I can think of few things that are dumber. Usually, any elected Democrat official comes to mind. But both concepts are utterly bogus.
The very concept of white guilt is racist. White guilt is getting a white person to feel guilty just for being white, given the history of “white” people (in reality, Democrats). It’s simply dumb. Not a single white person alive has ever owned a slave. Not a single black person alive has BEEN a slave. Not a single white person alive has whipped a black person with the intention to punish them and harm them. Not a single black person has been forced to pick cotton for his “massa”.
To force someone who’s white into feeling guilty for the sins of someone else just because they share a skin color is the very definition of racism. To do anything, good or bad, for anyone due to the color of that person’s skin is racist.
No white person should feel guilty for being white. Considering things, if you were to replace everything the Left has been saying about white people with the word “black”, they would probably recognize how racist they have been (I say probably because they may not have the mental capacity to recognize their own racism).
For example, Chuck Schumer has said that he intends not to vote for a judicial nominee because he’s white. While he didn’t specifically use those words, that’s in essence his message. He cited that Trump’s confirmed nominees were 92% white males. As though race should be taken into account for anything.
If you’re hiring someone to do a job, you should be trying to get the best person for it, not try to meet a stupid quota.
But if you replaced the word “white” in that conversation with the word “black”, Schumer might reconsider his vote (or at least the reason to not vote for the judge). I’m sure if the nominees were 92% black females, Schumer would have no problem with that, saying that it’s wonderfully diverse.
Either that or he simply would not make any mention about anything to do with Trump’s choices for federal judges.
What I’m trying to say is that we now live in a world where being white is somehow not ok and that if you’re white, you should feel guilty for things that have nothing to do with you. If there’s as much racism in the country as the Left claims there is, it’s racism against white people, not minorities.
And not that it matters, but this is all coming from a HISPANIC male. There, I’ve played the stupid and, frankly, racist game of identity politics for a bit. Somehow, me being Hispanic puts more weight into everything I’ve said. Somehow, my race is more important than the logic behind my words. If a white person said this, they’d be illogically labeled as racists. Luckily for me, I might get off lightly and just be called a fascist.
