This would only lead to more hate. People with this way of thinking need be removed from any position of power.

I am pretty sure the OP of the article linked is a troll. The person define themself as "A 16 year old Asian teenager ". in their bio. Doesn't seem possible.

Do racist threads like this deserve to be made and isn't there T&C rules for this?

injustice breeds anger or apathy in most people not sympathy or compassion, so be careful what you ask for.

it's designed for specific people, easy bait. spread it on Facebook and reddit and 4chan and alt-right outlets, then you have "minorities want to ban white people to vote" trending...
the huskies took notice of the gullibility and iq, and they pounced, and still are..

Stop collecting taxes from "white men" and see how long the US has money to spend on, well, damn near anything. Such angst and hatred against the hand that feeds... these people are screwy.

Are they confusing oppression with life again?

At this point, everyone has the same opportunities it's just a matter of the choices made.

Good one dc.

So let me see if I can get the premise straight:

If take revenge on whites, then they'll understand the power of the revenge movement labeling itself "social justice" and want to take some revenge of their own?

Sounds like a brilliant concept.

I disagree wholeheartedly with the OP's source, but doesn't your post prove the power and mentality the white male has in America, compared to women and minorities?

You literally just gave fuel to the fire of those that wish to push the "white privilege" argument.

"Screw with the white man and we will shut you down".

I blame society. When you build a system and allow some to have excuses at hand for personal failures, problems arise. Those problems magnify dramatically when those excuses are usually found in the form of blaming people who are showing personal responsibility and paint a picture whereby your failures simply MUST be the fault of those succeeding.

The country is broken. We need a galvanizing event that forces everyone to either stand up and find their pride and spines or be crushed.

We cannot really comment on the Huffpo blog because it was taken down due to the author being, according to them, of dubious character. Good on the post.

This article however that you offer is from what appears to be a feminist magazine. If I am correct in my reading of the article, it was offered as a thought exercise and not as a course of action.

As a course of action of course it is silly and anyone who would even think, let alone prescribe it as such would be crazy. Again however, I did not read that into the article as it appears so many others have.

LMAO! Hard work leading to success equals "white privilege" yeah, no, whatever... I'm stating a simple statistical fact... one can look at it in two ways. A phantom "white privilege" argument which is purely based in coddling Kept Voters and keeping their gravy train going via socially embraced excuses abdicating them of responsibility for their personal failures and shortcomings... OR it can be viewed as a screwball system in which the people putting the most effort and money into the system, the providers, are also blamed for all of the country's woes.

If being blamed for everything is a privilege... well, perhaps we should redefine the word because there's no privilege in that bullcrap.

Such things are not thought exercise. They are pure revenge porn.

What I read was a feminist juxtaposing a hundred and umpteen years of not being allowed to vote with a hypothetical concept that maybe white men not being allowed to vote for one year might help some of them to understand what it is like to be repressed from the voting booth. I do not agree with the idea, even in the hypothetical as any white man who might benefit from this type of introspection has already done so.

Oh, some more leftest crazy. Seems that there is more than one idiot who wants people to suffer because they were born with a specific shade of skin and are male.

I have to ask, how many of you agree with this insanity? I would love to see some valid arguments here.

Now, history lessons aside; many people who disagree so far might be thinking, “Yes, all this injustice that happened in the past was undoubtedly awful. However, two wrongs don’t make a right.”

However one can’t be sure if withdrawing the white man’s vote could be considered a “wrong”. Furthermore, the point here that has to be made is that banning white men from voting temporarily will help them understand systemic injustice and help them become better, more empathetic allies to the social justice cause.

In contexts like these, identity politics can be helpful, empowering and contributing to an important learning experience. White men who want to become better allies always come across the problem of “I will never understand what it feels like to be systemically oppressed” but this proposal may further their understanding of minority needs and improve relations between different genders and races, which is the ultimate goal; equality.




These people need less Jesus and more Ghandi. Their perspective on eye for an eye is stupid.

The whole white privilege thing is a hatchet job and exaggeration of the original sin argument, redone for a secular but equally as superstitious populace.

That's literally the best new argument I've heard on this matter.

Wish I had more stars to give.
