I’m offended that everyone is offended by something.
I’m offended that because I’m a white male, people automatically classify me as privileged, regardless of knowing where I’ve come from or what I’ve been through.
I’m offended that our First Amendment has turned into freedom of speech [just as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone’s feelings].
I’m offended that people assume I’m racist because I believe in economic development by way of Capitalism and a free-market economy.
I’m offended that people who are too afraid to ask for food stamps, disability, or unemployment (because they don’t want a handout) are probably the ones who could use it most, yet the majority of recipients who do in fact receive handouts abuse their “privilege” and continue to make frivolous purchases.
I’m offended by people who vote for a person based on the party they represent, the race or gender, age or a religion of a candidate… instead of how the candidate proposes to address each issue, respectively. I’m offended by people who aren’t open-minded and think they’re always right, no matter what. I’m offended by people who don’t listen and read and legitimately try to understand unfamiliar concepts before brushing them off. I’m offended of what our country has become.

I'm offended by the fact that we have to spend time on making laws that support all these "fringe " lifestyles instead of taking care of more serious matters. Just wastin' our time and money.

And from the talking points and issues he raised, it's a rant directed at black people but he just doesn't want or can't come out and say black people.
And by the way, solider, black people STILL have mixed feelings about that American flag.
I’m offended that fast food workers get paid more than my soldiers yet still expect to get paid more than nurses.

So what you are saying is that you are racist by your own personal interpretation of what he was saying and you are offended because he has a different point of view? Got it.
