White Privilege Myth

Remember, if you’re born White, you’re Evil incarnate (the original sin not forgiven- EVER!)  and minorities should hate you. And you should be aware of it and act accordingly.

Minorities MUST hate White People.

That’s how we’ll “improve” race relations. 🙂

FeministBreeder.com: After one reads McIntosh’s powerful essay, it’s impossible to deny that being born with white skin in America affords people certain unearned privileges in life that people of another skin color simple are not afforded. For example:

  • “I can turn on the television or open to the front page of the paper and see people of my race widely represented.”
  • “When I am told about our national heritage or about “civilization,” I am shown that people of my color made it what it is.”
  • “If a traffic cop pulls me over or if the IRS audits my tax return, I can be sure I haven’t been singled out because of my race.”
  • “I can if I wish arrange to be in the company of people of my race most of the time.”

If you read through the rest of the list, you can see how white people and people of color experience the world in two very different ways. BUT LISTEN: This is not said to make white people feel guilty about their privilege. It’s not your fault you were born with white skin and experience these privileges. BUT, whether you realize it or not, you DO benefit from it, and it IS your fault if you don’t maintain awareness of that fact.

And by default that means that Minorities are shit upon from day one, and it’s whities fault! The rich! Republicans! Conservatives! Capitalism! (see where this is going…) 🙂

Oh, and Quoting Dr. Martin Luther King (who was black) is ‘mind rape’ according the Far Left. Politically Incorrect bad juju.

That’s 3 counts of “mind rape”.

You’re welcome.

The Death of Martin Luther King, Jr

mlk hate MLK

50 Years of Democrat rule and the complete loss of the principles that got them their rights in the first place.

“I made it very clear that I work with the police and instructed them to do everything that they could to make sure that the protesters were able to exercise their right to free speech,” Rawlings-Blake said. “It’s a very delicate balancing act. Because while we try to make sure that they were protected from the cars and other things that were going on, we also gave those who wished to destroy space to do that as well. And we worked very hard to keep that balance and to put ourselves in the best position to de-escalate.”

The president of the Baltimore City Council apologized for calling rioters “thugs” at a press conference Tuesday, calling those responsible for the violence “misdirected” youths. Standing side-by-side with self-proclaimed gang members, Jack Young said that gang members stood in front of stores to prevent looting and retracted claims that gang members were targeting the Baltimore police. “We are all Baltimoreans,” Young said. Almost 200 people were arrested during Monday night’s riots. At least 144 vehicles and 15 buildings were burned, according to the mayor’s office.

No wonder the left can’t identify Radical Muslims as Radical Muslims.

Orwell’s principle wrought forth

FREEDOM IS SLAVERY

CLASS/GENDER/RACE  WAR IS PEACE

IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.

Then  there’s Salon.com (Leftists) that ADVOCATES violence as the only means, and non-violence (ala MLK) is worthless.

I’m overwhelmed by the pervasive slandering of protesters in Baltimore this weekend for not remaining peaceful. The bad-apple rhetoric would have us believe that most Baltimore protesters are demonstrating the right way—as is their constitutional right—and only a few are disrupting the peace, giving the movement a bad name.

This spin should be disregarded, first because of the virtual media blackout of any of the action happening on the ground, particularly over the weekend. Equally, it makes no sense to cite the Constitution in any demonstration for Black civil rights (that document was not written about us, remember?), but certainly not one organized specifically to call attention to the fact that the state breaks its own laws with regard to the oppressed on a nearly constant basis.

But there is an even bigger problem. Referring to Black Lives Matter protests, as well as organic responses to police and state violence as “non-violent” or “peaceful” erases the actual climate in which these movements are acting, the militant strategies that have rendered them effective, and the long history of riots and direct action on which they are built.

I do not advocate non-violence—particularly in a moment like the one we currently face. In the spirit and words of militant Black and Brown feminist movements from around the globe, I believe it is crucial that we see non-violence as a tactic, not a philosophy.

Non-violence is a type of political performance designed to raise awareness and win over sympathy of those with privilege. When those on the outside of struggle—the white, the wealthy, the straight, the able-bodied, the masculine—have demonstrated repeatedly that they do not care, are not invested, are not going to step in the line of fire to defend the oppressed, this is a futile political strategy. It not only fails to meet the needs of the community, but actually puts oppressed people in further danger of violence.

Telling someone to be peaceful and shaming their militance not only lacks a nuanced and historical political understanding, it is literally a deadly and irresponsible demand.

The political goals of rioters in Baltimore are not unclear—just as they were not unclear when poor, Black people rioted in Ferguson last fall. When the free market, real estate, the elected government, the legal system have all shown you they are not going to protect you—in fact, that they are the sources of the greatest violence you face—then political action becomes about stopping the machine that is trying to kill you, even if only for a moment, getting the boot off your neck, even if it only allows you a second of air. This is exactly what blocking off streets, disrupting white consumerism, and destroying state property are designed to do.

When there is more concern for white sports fans in the vicinity of a riot than the Black people facing off with police, there is mounting justification for the rage and pain of Black communities in this country.

What kinds of actions will it take to make it widely understood that all policing is racist terror, and justice can only come with its permanent abolition?

Black power, Queer power, power to Baltimore, and to all oppressed people who know what time it is.

But not to worry, it’s not their fault, after all, they’re hearts are in the right place and they “care” unlike Republicans…

President Obama  made clear that the reason the citizens of Baltimore are rioting out of control is – wait for it – because Republicans have failed to pass his legislative agenda.
They haven’t thrown enough money at the problem!!

Throwing money at a problem – especially Federal money – might make elected leadership feel good, and prevent upper class white liberals from having to face the reality of inner city life by keeping it at a safe distance with checks from the IRS, but it seldom does anything to repair infrastructure or rebuild an eroding community. And it certainly does nothing to improve the quality of leadership that people in flailing urban areas experience (and Baltimore looks to be the same story). In Detroit, it took a plotline straight out of Gotham City – the mysterious death of a stripper and the mayoral persecution of two rogue cops looking to bring her and her family justice – to start the ball rolling on reform. The Federal government threw millions – billions – at Detroit to bail it out, and it spent it all on hookers and cocaine. 

Literally.

But far be it from Barack Obama to address the real root causes of violence. I suppose the good news is he’s too busy than to use the city as a prop for a photo opportunity. (American Spectator)

The Daily Caller asked Hoyer, a Maryland Democrat, if the city’s leadership had failed, since the West Baltimore area was still being rebuilt from the 1968 riots. Hoyer replied, “We have to invest in making sure that we have proper infrastructure and proper housing so that we have neighborhoods that are safe and that we safe conditions in which to live.”

“But I wouldn’t call it a failure, certainly, of Baltimore,” he added. “But we’re going to have to as a country invest if we’re going to have the kinds of communities we want.

MLK is dead.

Not just physically, but spiritually DEAD.

Coffee Liberalism

I have to laugh at Starbucks. I haven’t drank coffee in over 30 years so I have no investment whatsoever in their business, but I just have to laugh.

Some White Liberals elitist executives (90% of Starbucks corporate leadership are white) thought it would be a real “feel good” moment to get people to “talk” about race relations at their stores.

“So how do you feel about the plight of the black youths today?” with your cafe’ latte “and that’ll be $6.

Hilarious!

Only the mind of a hippy liberal would have thought this was a good idea.

Well, they had good intentions, the liberals would say.

Well, the road to hell is paved with good intentions, Just look at Obama!

Typical of Liberals.

We’ll all just sit around drink our double mocha Caffè macchiato and pontificate about race in America with our customers (said with a pompous posh British upper class voice).

Did anyone ask the Baristas about putting their necks on the chopping block? Of course not. Corporate thought it was a “good idea” to “do something positive” for the public at large.

Then they pass out “the test” to see how racist you really are and how guilty the hippie Leftist can make you feel. 🙂

starbucks

It’s like Democrat Debbie (Wasermann-Schultz) tweeting out “tell me your favourite Democrat policies” and failing to understand that she just invited herself to be nuked.

But the doey-eyed hippy white guilt liberals just don’t understand that life is not as simple minded as they are.

It made them “feel good” about themselves so we want to make other feel good too.

BARF!

The fact that what they did was in fact JUST AS RACIST as the stuff that made them feel sad and that they didn’t know that is hilarious!

Is taking your coffee “black” racist?? 🙂

“Over the last few months, I have tried to seek out other influential people who have a greater understanding than I do of the issue of race and racial injustice in America.” CEO of Starbuscks said. Yeah, they were all white and all Liberal (or racist black people like Al Sharpton) “intellectuals” no doubt.

Schultz argued that the idea is to have a “positive effect on the national conversation” and help people understand that everyone has their unconscious biases.

Unfortunately, like most Liberals he doesn’t understand his own, but projects them at others.

The backlash over Starbucks’ dumb #racetogether campaign, in which employees are “encouraged” to discuss racial issues with their customers, arrived quickly. Among the numerous questions: whose dumb idea was this? Did the corporate honchos at Starbucks take into consideration whether their employees were well-equipped to have difficult conversations about race? Were they aware that they could be placing their baristas into hostile situations that they’re unprepared to diffuse? Was this the ultimate form of White Guilt? Or was the coffee company trying to capitalize off the growing news and discussion over racial issues in America?

Maybe they gave them “sensitivity” training? A video or two?? Nah, they just threw them to the wolves because it made THEM “feel good” because they were “doing something”. Which is the excuse for most Liberal ideas that fail miserably.

Naturally, people turned to Corey DuBrowa, Starbucks’ Senior Vice President of Communications, to find answers to these questions:

Yes: DuBrowa, a middle-aged white man, who was part of a corporate team that commanded their baristas to discuss race issues with their customers, deleted his Twitter account after people tried to discuss race issues with him.

In a statement to PR Week, DuBrowa said that he would come back on Twitter, but only when people stopped being so gosh darn negative to him:

DuBrowa explained that he shut down his Twitter account for a simple reason.

“My Twitter account was targeted around midnight [on Tuesday], and the tweets represented a distraction from the respectful conversation we’re trying to have around Race Together,” he said.

Translation: “Distraction”: People aren’t doing what we wanted them to do, which was of course was to fess up about how guilty they are of being racists.

Translation: “respectful conservation”: Hey! you’re suppose to be 100% in  agreement with me and do as we say or else I’ll take my marbles and go home…

DuBrowa added that he will be back on the social network soon, and Starbucks has announcements planned for its annual shareholder meeting on Wednesday that will provide more details about and context around Race Together.

Translation: The corporate PR people will be working overtime to try and fix/spin this mess and we’ll roll out our pig with some new lipstick soon!

David Calpo, an ordinary citizen responder, on the article from Mediaite above hit on the head:

Subatomic-particle-thin-skinned extreme-leftist execs who shut down social media accounts just because prospective customers ask them difficult questions about idiotic policies are JUST the kind of people that need to be training their employees how to handle situations beyond their own and their company’s core competency that they themselves initiate. What could POSSIBLY go wrong?!?!

They had the best of intention and it made them “feel good” so what could possibly go wrong! 🙂

Liberalism in microcosm.

These baristas seem to know that customers are supposed to patronize businesses, businesses are NOT supposed to patronize their customers. (But it made management “feel good” about “doing something”).
One Grande Bold Coffee please, hold the white guilt. 🙂

The Complete Lie

Remember when electing the First Black president was going to unify us all and save the universe…

Barack Obama 2008: Obama then offered his most strongly worded condemnation of Wright’s comments. “The remarks that have caused this recent firestorm weren’t simply controversial. They weren’t simply a religious leader’s efforts to speak out against perceived injustice. Instead, they expressed a profoundly distorted view of this country — a view that sees white racism as endemic, and that elevates what is wrong with America above all that we know is right with America…As such, Reverend Wright’s comments were not only wrong but divisive, divisive at a time when we need unity; racially charged at a time when we need to come together to solve a set of monumental problems — two wars, a terrorist threat, a falling economy, a chronic health care crisis and potentially devastating climate change; problems that are neither black or white or Latino or Asian, but rather problems that confront us all.”

He’s lying through his teeth and he knows it.

“This is where we are right now,” he said. “It’s a racial stalemate we’ve been stuck in for years. Contrary to the claims of some of my critics, black and white, I have never been so naĂŻve as to believe that we can get beyond our racial divisions in a single election cycle, or with a single candidate — particularly a candidacy as imperfect as my own. But I have asserted a firm conviction — a conviction rooted in my faith in God and my faith in the American people — that working together we can move beyond some of our old racial wounds, and that in fact we have no choice — we have no choice — if we are to continue on the path of a more perfect union.”

Soaring Rhetoric, but a complete lie.

2013: President Obama called on the nation to honor Trayvon Martin a day after George Zimmerman was acquitted of his murder by asking “ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence.” (NBC)

THE AGENDA IS THE AGENDA

“It’s time to question laws that senselessly expand the concept of self-defense and sow dangerous conflict in our neighborhoods,” Mr. Holder said, winning repeated applause from the NAACP delegates. “These laws try to fix something that was never broken.” (WT)

NEVER LET A CRISIS GO TO WASTE!

Obama: “We should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis. We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this. As citizens, that’s a job for all of us. That’s the way to honor Trayvon Martin.”

Fuck the “white” Hispanic!!

radio host Tom Joyner 2011: “Let’s not even deal with the facts right now. Let’s deal with just our blackness and pride — and loyalty. We have the chance to re-elect the first African-American president, and that’s what we ought to be doing. And I’m not afraid or ashamed to say that as black people, we should do it because he’s a black man.”

Rev Al Sharpton 2011: The Rev. Al Sharpton, an ally of President Obama who has a daily radio show and hosts a nightly cable television program, recently told the president’s black critics, “I’m not telling you to shut up. I’m telling you: Don’t make some of us have to speak up.”

Kychelle Green, 18, (2011) a nursing student at Norfolk State University, agreed. “You know it’s not really his fault that things aren’t changing,” she said. “He’s really trying but he can’t change every rule on his own. Now people are trying to criticize him because he is African American.”  (WP)

Birmingham, Alabama

Dennis Prager: The greatest hope most Americans — including Republicans — had when Barack Obama was elected president was that the election of a black person as the country’s president would reduce, if not come close to eliminating, the racial tensions that have plagued America for generations.

This has not happened. The election, and even the re-election, of a black man as president, in a country that is 87% nonblack — a first in human history — has had no impact on what are called “racial tensions.”

In case there was any doubt about this, the reactions to the George Zimmerman trial have made it clear.

The talk about “open season” on blacks, about blacks like Trayvon Martin being victims of nothing more than racial profiling and about a racist criminal justice system, has permeated black life and the left-wing mainstream media.

I put quotation marks around the term “racial tensions” because the term is a falsehood.

This term is stated as if whites and blacks are equally responsible for these tensions, as if the mistrust is morally and factually equivalent. But this is not at all the case.

“Racial tensions” is a lie perpetrated by the left. A superb example is when the New York Times described the 1991 black anti-Semitic riots in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, as “racial tensions.”

For those who do not recall, or who only read, viewed or listened to mainstream media reports, what happened was that mobs of blacks attacked Jews for three days after a black boy was accidentally hit and killed by a car driven by a Chasidic Jew.

A Brandeis University historian, Edward S. Shapiro, who wrote a book on the events, described those black attacks on innocent Jews as “the most serious anti-Semitic incident in American history.”

Blacks stabbed a Jewish student to death, injured other Jews, and screamed, “Heil Hitler!” and “Death to the Jews!” while carrying signs with messages such as “Hitler didn’t finish the job.”

And how did the New York Times report the most serious anti-Semitic incident in American history?

As racial tensions.

One of the Times reporters who covered those riots was Ari Goldman, now a professor of journalism at Columbia University.

Last year, 11 years after the riots, this is how Goldman described his former newspaper’s reporting of the events:

“In all my reporting during the riots, I never saw — or heard of — any violence by Jews against blacks. But the Times was dedicated to this version of events: Blacks and Jews clashing amid racial tensions.”

As a New York Times editorial described the black attacks: “The violence following an auto accident in Crown Heights reminds all New Yorkers that the city’s race relations remain dangerously strained.”

That was the entire left’s take: “strained relations” between blacks and Jews. “Racial tensions.” Both sides equally at fault.

Once one understands that “racial tensions” is a euphemism for a black animosity toward whites and a left-wing construct, one begins to understand why the election of a black president has had no impact on most blacks or on the left.

Since neither black animosity nor the left’s falsehood of “racial tensions” is based on the actual behavior of the vast majority of white Americans, nothing white America could do will affect either many blacks’ perceptions or the leftist libel.

That is why hopes that the election of a black president would reduce “racial tensions” were naive. Though a white person is far more likely to be murdered by a black person than vice versa, all it took was one tragic death of a black kid to reignite the hatred that many blacks and virtually all black leaders have toward white America.

Let’s put this in perspective. Ben Jealous of the NAACP, Al Sharpton of MSNBC, Jesse Jackson, and the left-wing media compete to incite hatred of America generally and white America specifically. Over what? A tragic incident in which a Hispanic man (regularly labeled “white”) said, with all physical evidence to support him, that fearing for his life, he killed a black 17-year-old (regularly labeled “a child”).

The very fact that George Zimmerman — who is as white as Barack Obama — is labeled “white” bears testimony to the left-wing agenda of blaming white America and to the desire of many blacks to vent anger at whites.

And that is why the election of a black president has meant nothing.

Indeed, to those whose lives and/or ideologies are predicated on labeling America and its white population as racist, it wouldn’t matter if half the Senate, half the House and half the governors were black.

IBD: What’s more, charging Zimmerman under federal hate-crimes law would defy the findings of the FBI’s own investigation conducted last year. All told, agents interviewed no fewer than 45 Zimmerman co-workers, neighbors and other acquaintances — including even his ex-fiance — and found no evidence of racial bias.None said Zimmerman, a neighborhood crime watch captain, had expressed racial animus at any time prior to the Feb. 26, 2012, self-defense shooting of Martin, who while under the influence of illegal drugs had jumped Zimmerman, breaking his nose and bashing his head repeatedly on the pavement. The 17-year-old Martin was visiting Zimmerman’s gated community in Sanford, Fla., while on school suspension for alleged burglary.

Lead Sanford Police Detective Chris Serino told the FBI that race wasn’t behind the shooting.

“Serino believed that Zimmerman’s actions were not based on Martin’s skin color (but) rather on his attire, the total circumstances of the encounter and the previous burglary suspects in the community,” the FBI wrote in its report. “Serino described Zimmerman as overzealous and as having a ‘little hero complex,’ but not as a racist.”

Even an African-American officer — Sanford Police Sgt. Arthur Barns — denied Zimmerman targeted Martin because he was black. He “felt the shooting was not racially motivated,” the FBI report stated.

But The Agenda is The Agenda
