How about a discussion of ALL Lives Matter? The number of abortions every year. These small human beings NEVER had a chance. Yet who is it that mostly supports the continuation of the horror? The Democrats, and a good proportion of Catholics. You want to talk of criminal activity! Every weekend we hear on the news about 30-40 deaths in Chicago, and most of these were committed by NON whites. Clean up your own back yards first!

If systemic (ie, institutional) racism exists among cops, what about black cops? How about the Asian, Hispanic, and Arab cops? George Floyd's arrest included a white, black, Asian, and Hispanic cop. Were they all racists?
In the eyes of the democrats, ANY excuse to start rioting, looting, burning and killing is acceptable.
RACE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT.
November 3 is all that matters: democrats MUST have the black vote and I surely hope that the blacks don't fall in the 'vote for us and we'll make your life miserable' trap AGAIN.

Or how about abortion was originally pushed as a means of eugenics to eliminate black people? You could say abortion is a racist practice.
It is dramatically cutting back on the amount of auto-votes for democrats from the black community.
I am surprised that, during this pandering year, the democrats are not trying to make abortion illegal for blacks.

I doubt it was a racist practice.
Welfare mothers increased income with more babies.
Why have an abortion???

That's a good question. I asked the same question, and got a very emphatic answer. All lives matter, everyone agrees on that ... but we're not allowed to ask that. You see, if we have to ask, then we've missed the point. IF you challenge BLM with ALM, you and I are racist ... because this isn't about all lives, it's about black lives. If you bring all lives into it, you diminish black lives ... ergo racist. When challenged with the question as to how all lives is racist, and narrowing it to only black lives is not, the general premise that nothing pro-black, even in the wake of anti-anything else, can be racist.

It follows typical liberal thought. One us accused of racism ... by the racists. Once again guilty of what they accuse others of. This is how messed up this whole thing is. Clearly it's not just about black lives, it's about power, while carrying that banner. It leaves us totally apologetic whites silent as any thought otherwise makes you guilty of that which you should be apologetic for.

AND PEOPLE ARE BUYING IT!

Antifa = Anti-Fascists... They the biggest fascists of all.
I often wonder if any of them might actually question their own fascism. They'd obviously be in denial, but you'd think at some point they'd at least get a whiff of it. Looks like a fascist, acts like a fascist, talks like a fascist .... probably fascist. Just sayin'.

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About White Privilege

My name is Wayne Allyn Root. I'm an SOB (son of a butcher). I understand this "white privilege" controversy like no one person on Earth.

I've never had it. I've never even had a whiff of it. That's why I have no "white guilt." I have nothing to be guilty about. But I have met plenty of privileged white kids. You know what you call them? Liberal Democrats. More on that in a minute.

First, my background. My Jewish ancestors were far more likely to be slaves than to have one. My ancestors were persecuted, abused, robbed, enslaved and murdered by government -- just like Black Americans.

My Jewish grandparents got to America in the early 1900s -- long after slavery. They settled in New York City, not the South. If they ever met anyone from the Ku Klux Klan, it was only because they were being persecuted by white extremists -- just like Black Americans.

My father fought in World War II and faced sure death at Okinawa. Was that "white privilege"? He spent the rest of his life as a blue-collar butcher. He woke at 3 a.m. every day to drive to the meat market in the dark and freezing cold and buy the wholesale meat he'd sell at his shop. My father struggled his entire life as a working-class man and died with an estate of nothing (other than his home).

He worried every hour of every day how he'd pay his bills. No one gave him anything in his life -- let alone because he was white.

So, where was his "white privilege"? Can liberals please explain where all that hidden privilege was? Because my dad's story is the story of most middle-class white Americans. We are the "silent majority" that supports President Donald Trump. We've never caught a whiff of "white privilege."

My personal story is all about Black and white. I attended a rough urban high school on the Bronx borderline that was 90% Black. I was one of the few white kids out of 4,000 students. I was tortured 24/7 for being "the minority." I was beaten a hundred times. I was chased home from school, terrified, fearing for my life. My lunch money was stolen so often I stopped going to lunch. I knew better than to ever go to the school bathroom. That's where kids were terrorized and robbed. I was almost murdered by a thug with a machete. Is that what you call "white privilege"?

But, eventually, I learned to fight, knocked out a few bullies, became an athlete and won my classmates' respect. I graduated valedictorian and was accepted to my dream school, Columbia University.

That's where I first learned about "white privilege." As a matter of fact, almost every one of my classmates at Columbia University had it. They were almost all lucky-sperm-club, spoiled-brat, filthy-rich kids with rich, powerful fathers who opened every door for them, greased every wheel. They had everything handed to them on a silver platter, with no effort necessary.

Now that's white privilege.

Oh, and where did all these little spoiled brats with "white privilege" wind up? Today, my Ivy League classmates are mostly powerful politicians, lawyers and media figures.

So, "white privilege" is real. But it is only enjoyed by 1 percent of 1 percent of 1 percent of the country. And trust me, virtually every one of them is a liberal Democrat. Every classmate I ever met who was born rich was a liberal Democrat who hated Ronald Reagan, hated white people (even though they were all white), hated capitalism and hated America.

Today, they all hate President Trump.

So, yes, there is "white privilege." But it isn't me. Don't try to hang that guilt trip on me. I have no white guilt. This son of a butcher has earned every ounce of my success. That applies to 99 percent of the 63 million Trump voters. No one ever gave us anything. We don't owe anyone anything. "White privilege" exists. But we've never experienced it.

So, it's a free country. Everyone has free speech. March and protest for Black Lives Matter to your heart's content. Just do it peacefully. And understand that the tiny percentage of Americans who actually have "white privilege" are spoiled-brat, Ivy League-educated white liberals.

Whenever you meet a liberal lawyer, powerful Democratic politician or member of the media, there's your "white privilege." They're the ones you should be angry with. They're the ones you should be protesting.

So much for "white privilege."

Now that's white privilege.
What's being described here is indeed privilege, but "white" has nothing to do with it. It's the privilege that comes with wealth, and it's partly something we all want to give our kids. No doubt about it there are definitely people out there believe my son is privileged, and indeed he is. I worked my ass off for that, and my father before me. Again, "white" has nothing to do with it.

Around here there are many, very wealthy brown families. Came to Canada with a great deal of wealth. Same with Asians. Not all by any stretch, but many are here. Yes, they impart their privilege through wealth to their children. Their communities take care of their own. They give their own the jobs, and short track their own into colleges and universities. That's not "brown" privilege, or Asian privilege, but money privilege. Why then is it "white" privilege when a white person does well for their family?

I think the term "white privilege" is being extended to wealth in some way. I don't believe that is the only criteria being called out though. It's somehow how other races are being "held back" by not being white, as I understand it anyway. I think that's why it always comes around to money, and why it's so easy to point at what people have as privilege. Around here, in their own communities, or with respect to their own demographic, there is definitely "brown" privilege ... "Asian" privilege. Those, however are exempted from being called out as somehow racist. Same can be extended to women to some degree. Women will provide advantage to other women, just because they are women. That then is "female" privilege. We don't have a large black population up here, and of those that we do have, are pretty much on par with their white, or other colored peers.

I think the "white privilege" booger man is largely used to satisfy the vacuum left by a lack of wealth. No one wants to take responsibility for their own situation, they don't want to blame to father that didn't stick around, the mother who had way too many children, their own bad choices. It's far easier to point at the few "white" people who are wealthy and claim all whites enjoy the same privilege. It's a myth, I think, or at the very least, I think some added perspective is greatly needed. I think the "privilege" being called out exists almost universally, just like the lack of said "privilege" does, ergo, it's not really privilege.

When a group of people, specifically, BLM, would extort some sort of reparations for something the vast majority of Americans, even historically, had nothing to do with, and most of the BLM were not directly impacted, tells me it's a cash grab and has nothing to do with the ever elusive "white privilege".

RBS, thanks for posting your thoughts here. You could've been far more antagonistic and still be within your right of free speech. But, if someone out there decided one segment of society could have 'pride' and another segment could have 'protection' and yet another segment have 'advancement' then hell yes, why not another segment with 'privilege'? We're all special...

Yeah, why not ? ... apparently anything goes these days, as long as you're a victim.
