White Privilege: Newest Form of Acceptable Racist Bullying from the Left
It is pernicious, gaining momentum throughout society, and pleasing to leftists everywhere. The term “white privilege” has come to mean that if you are born white, then you are privileged, period. By virtue of the fact that a person is born as a white person, they are born with a white gold spoon in their mouths apparently.
Being born white means that many privileges have come to you solely because you are white. Money comes to you like metal to a magnet. Job opportunities come to you without even having to apply for those jobs because, well, after all, you’re white.
When a white person goes to college, someone comes along and simply pays the bill because you are white. In effect, being white means not having to earn anything because of all the opportunities in life that simply come your way.
The goal of White Privilege is to force white people to realize their unearned yet privileged status, own up to it, and declare that they are in and of themselves, racists. It’s a very surreptitious form of bullying. The most interesting thing about it is that it is insidious and based on nothing except words by people like Dr. Derrick Bell, father of the racist theory known as Critical Race Theory (CRT). White Privilege is part and parcel of CRT.
Some of the tenants of CRT include (but are not limited to):
- white people are inherently racist
- white people are magnets for opportunities that “people of color” do not automatically enjoy
- white people should realize they need to get to the back of the line (or out of it altogether)
- white people who are also Christians are the worst of the worst
- “people of color” cannot be racist toward whites
- white people can be discriminated against, but not be on the receiving end of racism
These are just some of the more asinine aspects of Critical Race Theory as seen in White Privilege. I think it’s fascinating that during the 1970s, blacks and other minorities sat around and came up with something that on its face appears to be theoretically true (because it was created in the halls of academia), but has not one smidgen of proof that it is viable or true.
The idea that just because a person is born white, he/she has ample amounts of opportunities and an automatic leg up on society is absurd, yet this persists because it provides a seemingly astute line of reasoning that allows blacks and other minorities to be racist toward whites even while they are able to deny that they are racist toward whites.
The general definition of racism is defined as a hatred or intolerance of a specific race of people. Can black people hate whites? Of course they can. They are human beings with the same propensities toward evil that we all share. This is roundly denied though by people who tend to agree with the pervasively evil assault on truth known as Critical Race Theory and White Privilege.
White Privilege is the reason for the following things in society:
- Black on white crime rarely being termed hate crimes
- Special interest groups for minorities (NAACP, Black Caucus, Hispanic Caucus, BET, etc.)
- Affirmative Action which simply grants special rights and privileges to blacks and other minorities
- A growing awareness of the “thought police”
- The reason a person can be fired (based on racially motivated comments)
There are many other reasons for what we see happening in society and though we see the left constantly referring to aspects of CRT – normally White Privilege – the upshot of the whole thing is that it’s all part of the same Marxist policies: Cultural Marxism.
Cultural Marxism deigns to reinvent/redefine society, moving it toward a communistic goal. This is where everyone, regardless of race, creed, religion, ethnicity, etc., has an equal piece of the pie. Cultural Marxism attempts to move society toward a truly egalitarian society where every person is treated the same as every other person.
However, in order for Cultural Marxism to bring society to that egalitarian unity, it first must actually separate the races and attempt to take into consideration the abuses from one race to another. That means that in early America, when whites owned black slaves, even though none of those people are alive today, the white race must suffer the consequences of the actions of their forefathers.
The absurdity is that in cases like mine, both sets of grandparents legally immigrated to the United States well after the Civil War was over. This means that no one in my family line ever owned slaves in America. They had nothing to do with it, but that doesn’t matter to the bean counters. All whites must pay.
The absurdity continues when we learn that these same individuals who speak of (and believe in) White Privilege also claim that Christianity is not a religion at all. It is merely a systemic form of oppression against women and minorities. Since Christianity was introduced in America via white Europeans, those who propagate White Privilege believe they have a point scored.
Unfortunately, their duplicity and hypocrisy is seen for what it is when no comments are directed to Islam for its excessive violence, its civil rights abuses, its archaic forms of punishment, and its hateful punishment of homosexuals who are usually executed.
The goal of the left is to destroy American society. For the left, it is always done through lying. It’s what they are very good at and as Alinsky has stated, if you repeat a lie often enough, it will become the truth. That’s because people lack critical thinking skills and they want anything they can find to blame someone else for their lack of will.
We hear many mixed signals in society today. The left speaks out about bullying when it comes to homosexuality. Yet, they are the chief bullies.
The left speaks of discrimination and racism toward people of color, yet the left constantly discriminates against white men especially through their racist theories that they believe to be true.
White Privilege does not exist except in the minds of those who are looking for excuses for their own failures. They need to blame someone because taking responsibility is only what mature people do. The left is not mature and neither do they pander to mature individuals.
The left has created a system of slavery by entitlement. In order for them to continue in this vein, they must portray conservative whites as hostile to their plan. The reason they say we are hostile is due to White Privilege – the “fact” that we don’t want to lose our privileged status in society.
This is garbage, especially considering the fact that there is not ONE special interest group looking out for the interests of whites. When one rises, it is quickly defamed and labeled racist. If whites are so privileged, then why after so many decades of dealing with groups like the NAACP, has there really been no gains in helping blacks and other minorities achieve much?
It’s only when blacks remove themselves from the left do they begin to make true inroads in society, yet the left can’t bear that so they denigrate those blacks as sell-outs and Uncle Toms.
The truth is that the left – like the goats in the Bible – are on the wrong side and they are using lies to create their own truth. Of course, it isn’t truth at all, but merely deception disguised as truth.
Standing against the fallacy of White Privilege means standing against the bullies on the left. I’m up for it. How about you?
