White privilege has been one of the most eye-rolly concepts to come from the left (see Harvard Tries Hiding ‘Debate’ Video: ‘Kill Yourself over White Privilege’ and University of Oklahoma Shames Engineering Students for ‘White Privilege.’ Misses Key Irony). Long story short, leftists couldn’t handle some white people having a different opinion than what they commanded, so they invented “white privilege” to shame them from having an opinion at all.
Filmmaker Ami Horowitz exposed “white privilege” for the malarkey it’s always been. He started at a leftist conference, where the predictable white people in attendance answered his question predictably.
One lady said, “My mom didn’t raise me to view color as the object of anything.” Another lady said that it was harmful to spread the myth of privilege because it gives black kids “no hope.” One man flat-out called white privilege “a myth,” citing the fact that he had seen a number of kids in the housing project go on to lead successful careers.
But it was the man running a food stand on the street who said it best in the video: “It’s America. If you’re willing to put forth an effort, you’ll do what you gotta do.” He later added, “If you let something stop you, then that’s you.”
No, this video will not stop dunderheaded fudge-packing tools from spouting off talking points they just heard some other dunderheaded fudge-packing tool say. Such is the way of the world. People hear a thing, think it sounds good, and initiative their best impression of a multicolored parrot sitting atop a mentally disabled drooler with a peg-leg. Ironically in hopes of sounding smart. Or “woke.”
ALL people should take a cue from Ami Horowitz and other skeptics. Rather than just repeating something others have repeated, don’t. The morons in the video above who believe in “white privilege” believe in “white privilege” because they’ve been told it’s a thing. It’s a concept which happens to play to their vanity. “I’m white, ergo, I’m powerful just for being white, ergo I have privilege.” Ergo: shut up and let black people speak. Except black people can speak for themselves. Believing you have more natural power over the world simply for your skin color is racist. It’s a plot twist they would’ve figured out had they asked just a few simple questions of themselves.
Regardless, if you do believe in concepts such as microaggressions and “white privilege” maybe you should just stop talking all together. Until you figure out how skepticism and critical thought actually work. Yes, that’s my long way of saying you’re a standard issue moron.
