Speaking of revenge porn, have you heard about the new Amazon offering, "Black America?" Based on the premise that black slaves got reparations in the form of three southern states, and they prospered to become a superpower while the rest of white America languished and crumbled.

Evidently in response to GoT creators making "Confederacy."

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.


All due respect, but I think that went well over your head and you only added more fuel to that fire. You are giving more credence to those that push the "white privilege" narrative by calling them screw-ups, without any consideration of past grievances against certain demographics.


Are we talking about those same people that push "white privilege" while attending Ivy league schools?

As a divorced white male that pays nearly 30% in taxes, I'd give up my right to vote if I could forfeit paying taxes. I'm okay with losing my voting rights if the ones benefitting from my work are okay losing their welfare.

If you really want my fellow white males and I, allies or not, to experience systemic opression, you would have to inflict the same opressors on us.

Flood white neighborhoods with police officers, and have them pull people over and stop them for no reason and look for criminal activity.

Prosecute us to the fullest extent.

Have our resumes passed over when the recruiters see white names.

Carry preconceived notions that are negative about our work ethic and morality.

etc.

This are the ypes of things the white man must endure to better understand. Not stripping our right to vote.


Will you be the first in line to get hung from a tree?


I think maybe my tone was lost on some ppl here..

My tone was more of the spirit of:

Friend: Hey did you read about that murderer who was caught when they found the body chopped up into little pieces and buried?

Me: Yeah I saw that. You know, chopping it up didnt really help his cause, if anything it hurts him because he gets a charge for copse mutilation. If he really didnt want to get caught he should have definitely dissolved the whole thing in acid.. that way he cant get caught, way cleaner, etc.

U know the old saying if i keep stoping u from hurting urself ull never learn

Give em what they want ... than they can cry about how there voice dosent mater to the goverment we need a non white goverment

Give them that 2 ... but if they think anything will change there insane

We could split the whole usa in 2 white on 1 side non white on the other ... and both sides would be the same ... hateful people need reasons to hate and if u take 1 reason away they will hate for another

Non white cops still shoot people ... non white voters still vote however they want ... and non white poloticians still will take money to sway laws for large corperations

So go ahead do it ... i cant wait to have the largest percentage of the population not vote

To add i think we should ... next election not a single white man shpould vote it will make things interesting ... i can blame the non white voters for everything for 4 years ... sounds like fun to me

Pretty sure I deserve the right to vote - This might sound callous, but why should me being white have any effect on my ability to vote? Considering the fact that my ancestry is all German (with Irish and Native American), why should I be taught a lesson about something my ancestors didn't do?

I disagree with the article - if you want to "teach" someone a lesson, this isn't the way to go about it. However, it would be amusing to participate in this for a year: Because guess what - I think we all know that if this were to happen, and if the politicians that got in were horrible, then they'd blame us for not voting
(And then we can point at this article on the Wayback Machine as proof).

Yes in Zimbabwe.Now i hear Mugabe is asking white farmers to come back.But now our brilliant prez Jacob Zuma wants to do the same.I really wish all whites could just be removed from this planet along with ALL our works,past and present,and all the fruits of our labours.Let the racist whitey-hating ethnicities left behind starve in their stone age world.I swear,i would have my immortal soul snuffed out if i could get just that in return.That is how sick i am of this #.

Affinity Magazine is by teens, for teens. The author of the piece is 16 years old. She's asking a question.

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.

... 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.

That's just her suggestion. The problem she is attempting to address is lack of empathy.

My thoughts on the matter are that not every white male has been groomed to be one of the ruling elites.

Some people insist upon being unlimited in their life. Some people are used to limits. That seems to be more basic to me than the question of empathy. Insistence does not achieve through empathy, but rather the lack of empathy.

I will go ahead and say I am a self described SJW..

However this solution doesn't even really mimic the same type of systemic oppression faced by POC today. Therefore this would not be a very fulfilling initiative.

If you really want my fellow white males and I, allies or not, to experience systemic opression, you would have to inflict the same opressors on us.

Flood white neighborhoods with police officers, and have them pull people over and stop them for no reason and look for criminal activity.

That sends the wrong message, because POC have the right to vote, and they need to recognize that, and vote more!


You're ill. Seriously. Go to a doctor and talk about your feelings. I'm worried for you.
