Re: “My white privilege, my brown grandchildren

TruB - Are you on drugs? Yes, please people - search my name. You're not going to see any support for white nationalism, and in fact will see the opposite. You are lying.

Re: “My white privilege, my brown grandchildren

I'm white Irish, and yet I'm seemingly unaffected by this "white privilege" I'm told about. In my 20's cops would frequently tail my car, as they did with many young drivers, and that was annoying. Now I'm older and married and drive a min-van, so this doesn't happen anymore, but I do face other issues. I'm a little under average height and am stocky with muscle. Something about my look guarantees that I'll be selected for "random extra screening" at every stop at every airport I fly through. Happens every time, and I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of a guy.

I want to address your two "dog whistles". First, about white people being an oppressed minority or some such. White people are not a minority in Western countries, so that's out right away. It's very hard to argue with the fact that blatant and hostile racism against white people is considered completely acceptable on most media, as well as YouTube, which will yank a video that even obliquely criticizes a minority group. It's common to see outright calls for violence against white people, without the slightest pushback from anyone on the left.

It's also difficult to see how you could contest that points in the Oppression Olympics are prized by leftists. This is a demonstrable fact. You know how I know I'm dealing with a leftist? Their bio is filled with information about their race, sexual orientation, gender status, preferred pronouns, etc. Conservatives don't do this. When listening to ANY leftist speak, the most common phrase is something like, "As a woman of color..."

But I also really want to address your idiocy about white people not being denied a voice in discussions about social justice. This is also a demonstrable fact. It's common for white people to be told they can't speak on issues because they're white. It isn't even difficult to find hours of videos showing exactly this kind of behavior on the left. Your contention that historical politicians were white is so stupid I hardly know where to begin. I'm assuming you're not really this stupid, and understand exactly how flawed your point was. What a President's skin color 100 years ago means absolutely nothing in a discussion about current social justice issues. Or more to the point, the abandonment of personal responsibility for group responsibility the left has embraced.
