Hell, we pay the black guy who comes to my country club.

Sure, he's got to wash dishes, but we do pay him!

Don't judge a man until you've walked a mile in his golf cleats while someone else carries your golf bag. Just sayin'.

Waffle houses with security guards.

If you guys keep paying attention to Fox News, then they will never shut up.

I think Salon.com spends more time focusing on Fox News than on all other subjects combined.

Since Fox News has already determined that there's no such thing as racism, and since "white privilege" is just another way to say "discrimination against non-whites", I guess they're just being consistent.

My wife has been trying to get me into this social justice thing that seems to be all the rage these days. I'm pretty sure I have it down, I have original sin privilege because I was born sinful a white male. While I cannot ever be free of this sin privilege I can spend my life atoning for the circumstances of my birth. Atonement is through unquestioning agreement with the opinions of the elect women and colored people people of color.

I think I got that right but I'm also told that my privilege is invisible to me so I might still be wrong.

TFA:
Carlson brought on a guest to back up his contention that it's "racist" to claim that white people experience a distinct privilege.

You're the real racist!

When a cop pulls me over, I put my hands outside of the car. If I'm carrying a weapon, which I'm licensed to carry in New York, the first thing I tell the police officer is, 'Officer, I want you to know I have a legal firearm in the car,'" he said. "First thing I say to the officer. He'll ask, 'Where is it?' I'll say, 'It's in my holster.' And he says, 'Alright, just keep your hands outside.' That's usually the protocol. And then 'Can I have your license and registration, please? Move slowly.' And I often would even step out of the car, lift my sh

What if I believe that white privilege exists, but I don't feel guilty? What if I feel outraged, instead? What if I believe that everyone should be treated as well as I am, regardless of the color of their skin?

Am I a horrible person because I don't feel guilty?

FOXNews raging is a cottage industry these days. These submissions and people raging on Faceboon are the only ways I ever have a clue about who is saying what on that network.

I don't believe I'm exaggerating that at least 90% of threads on the Main tab include someone bleating in some way about Fox News.  I'd be happy if Fox News (and MSNBC) along with everyone involved in its production fell into a volcano, but the obsession has become both tiresome and disturbing.  "Cute kitten says 'I WUV YOU!'  Faux News probably wants to kill it because it's black."

No. You're a horrible person because you're white. Any other point is moot.

White privilege is the ability to pretend that racism doesn't exist.
 
2014-08-29 04:54:43 PM  
Is it really so hard to believe that in all the years of legal discrimination in America, certain ideas became ingrained in our culture, maybe even were written into policies and codes and laws?  Why is it so hard to acknowledge this, and say, "We were wrong to ever treat people that way, and we're committed to making right any lasting effects of insitutionalized racism"?

Are they afraid there aren't enough equal rights to go around?

No one can talk about sweeping cultural/racial stereotypes without sounding racist (because it is), unless it's white males, then all stereotypes are both valid and all inclusive.

Why should you feel guilty?  Have you personally done something that warrants guilt?

No. You're a horrible person because you're white. Any other point is moot.


You are trying too hard. Nobody reasonably discussing the modern forms of racism feels this way.

Black(colored) privilege is to blame white people for any and all problems ever encountered and to take no responsibility for your actions.

Broaden your horizons and become more informed and educated, racism against whites exists to a far greater degree than white racism against minorities in the 21st century.  Doubt me? Let a black man walk in in all white neighborhood and then let a white man walk in all black neighborhood and then let's see the level of racism in each instance.   Take notes from your experiment then come back and debate when you have some facts.

Only if you're a liberal.

And not insanely wealthy.

The problem is that ideas like social privilege are really complicated ideas that cannot be adequately explained in a couple sentences. But tv news is very much not about complicated idea, so they get some pundits together to give the viewer simple digestible ideas like "white people don't have bad things happen to them" and then point out that these ideas are obviously not true.

I walk in an all-black neighborhood every time I want some good BBQ for lunch and I walk my dog in an all-white neighborhood every evening. I've never been hassled in either one, if that's what you're going for.

Maybe you're just an asshole and people don't like you?

I think it's pretty obvious to just about everyone that being a white male does have some advantages. I freely admit that and I'm fortunate to be born the color I am with the genitalia I have. The problem comes when people act as if I should feel guilt for accidents of birth that are completely outside my control. I absolutely refuse to feel one iota of guilt for being who I am.

I've been a liberal my entire life but this social justice / privilege trend is becoming increasingly exclusionary. I'll work to ensure that there's as level a playing field for everyone as possible regardless of etnicity, gender, whatever but the moment you tell me I don't get to have a voice because of the color of my skin or my gender then you lose me entirely. People can go on all they want about institutionalized power structures but if someone is unwilling to treat me as an equal, then they have freed me from my obligation to treat them as an equal.
 
2014-08-29 05:02:33 PM  
I think the ideal life right now would be a male, gay, mixed race, democrat, news anchor dog or cat owner.
