So this has been bothering me for awhile
What do you think
I am an Aussie, it’s a great country, probably better than any western country, maybe even better than Enzed, maybe
I have a lady friend from Colombia, South America, been here 5 to 10 years, loves it, would not even consider going home, has a couple of kids, a
daughter 16 years old, nice kid but
Recently, a month or two ago told me she was angry with White Male Privilege in Australia, so being the mature adult I asked her to tell me what that
was, she explained the discrepancy in wages... what discrepancy I asked and a 16 year old diatribe ensued. I asked her if she could explain the
governments position on equality of wages for men and women (legally women must earn the same) and she was a little less forward.
Then she babbled on about women getting the vote in the UK (the UK) and she was so wrong about that, women and men got the voting rights after WW1,
not just women.
Can anyone explain white male privilege in the West?
She is 16, she has no idea and that’s ok but, I understand her ignorance at 16, but who the hell is teaching these kids stupidity
Why do these kids offer such divisive comments/arguments
I want to say “go home to Colombia you winging girl” I want to but obviously that’s not right
This 16 year old girl will have more opportunities than I ever had but isn’t grateful, wants more and her family did nothing to earn what is offered
to her, just immigrated
It irks me
Love her, wonderful kid but
Maybe this should be a rant
I have had a tough and crap life but in a wonderful country that has failed me consistently yet has done it’s very best
I am not complaining because I didn’t get everything
