I have absolutely no guilt. I don't owe anyone anything, especially not for my color.
I also don't believe in white privilege. The way I see it is, the idea of one color being more privileged than the other comes straight from media
propaganda, and people not wanting to take responsibility for their actions.
There isn't white privilege. There isn't privilege in general. If you want something, you fight for it. Things aren't just given to you in this
world. There are white people who attend Harvard, but guess what? They don't let just anyone into Harvard. They probably maintained a 4.0 GPA and did
a ton of extra curricular activities all through high school. There are white people who are rich, but they went to school and got a well paying job,
or used their skills to create something, like Bill Gates or Steve Jobs. But on the flip side, there are homeless white people, struggling white
people, starving white people. There are white people with incurable illnesses that prevent them from getting jobs. There are gay white males, who get
talked down on everyday. There are white females getting raped and abused. There are white teenagers getting into trouble on the streets. How are they
There are also black people who attend Harvard. And we are led to believe that they put in the same work that a white student did in order to get
accepted. There are black people who are rich and famous, (Jonathon Vilma, who's net worth is 21 million. Or LaRon Landry who's net worth is 25.7
million.) but it wasn't just handed to them. They used their skills, and started using them young. But on the same flip side, there are black people
with the same struggles as white people.
Let's talk about the colored community for a minute: Black people have many different things to help advance them along. They have the NAACP (Which
isn't needed. We're passed the time when black people couldn't get the same education, and the like. And when it comes to jobs, politics, etc, it
should be the people most qualified to get the position. And if the person who is qualified is black, so be it. But if they are white, so be it as
well.) Colleges will often overlook a qualified white student in order to accept a black student who is less qualified in order to side step a
discrimination case, and so on and so on.
The people who scream that white people are so privileged are the same kids who are running the streets, and the adults living on welfare because they
don't want to get a job. They expect that things be equally well for everyone, but the world just doesn't work that way. You have to work and put
effort towards what you want. I would be extremely pissed if I was passed over for something I was qualified for, and I found out it went to a less
You can't backtalk and attack authority and expect to get very far, you can't be lazy and expect to get very far. Be respectful, be patient, and
work your ass off, and good things will come to you whether you're black or white.
And I personally, will not ever feel guilty just because I am white and I'm doing well in life. And I sure as hell will not let someone (white or
black) treat me like crap because I am doing better than them via my own doing, and because of what my family may or may not have done to their family
during slave times. Live in the present, everyone. Grow up and live in the now!
