Yea You heard me, Snotty ass White Privilege.
No such thing. Yes, you heard me. No such thing as white privilege. Maybe there used to be a long while back. But not now. If anything, it's
just the opposite. Educated white males in this country are trashed by small minded racists and routinely put aside for less educated and less
capable 'people of color'. 'white privilege'.... pffft ...
And I CAN PROVE IT.
I have TWO daughters, one Light skinned Blond hair Blue Eyes,
Another DARK SKIN HAZEL EYES and I DO MEAN DARK. She's Half Cherokee Native Indian, her father was Full Blood Cherokee.
We are educated Poor, don't let my lazy typing here Fool you, one bit. My husband Works in Academia. Now,
WE deal with RACISM on a DAILY BASIS as well as YES WHITE PRIVILEGE. Both my daughters raised in
SAME HOME, SAME EDUCATION, SAME BACKGROUND
And when applying for Jobs my light skinned daughter is ALWAYS treated better, ALWAYS. She does NOT have to beat down
Racial stereotypes (the dumb blond stereotypes yes but Not the racial). She does NOT get harassed by cops, my Dark skin daughter does All the time.
She does Not get pitted by either blacks, Latinos to go against her sister, ONLY BY WHITES.
My dark skin daughter gets it from All sides, worse from whites. All her life she's put up with Ignorant White Privelge ignorants who pop off with
"how can you have a white name but be dark? Or are you adopted? Or is your daddy in jail? Unbelievable ignorance and Racism, a s this since she
was a CHILD.
And you Kniw something, we have as second marriage NINE KIDS in TOTAL and EVERY DAMN ONE OF THEM WOULD CALL YOU A FLAT OUT LIAR
Because THEY'VE ALL SEEN IT.
See That MYTH might fly in all an White Southern or good ole boy community, it might Fly in an all black or brown community,
BUT THAT SHIAT DON'T FLY WITH MULTI CULTURAL BI-RACIAL FAMILIES/COMMUNITIES THAT KNOW BETTER.
And Yes I'll call you in it. See that might Fool folks who live in a bubble or who like to play those b.s. catch myths but I Know better,
Ive moved Several times to get AWAY FROM YES SNOTTY ASS WHITE PRIVILEGED FOLKS. They exist all Over the place. AS does a Priveleged Sanitized racist
We are also a Very diverse religious family...from Christian to Pagan to Native Indian to Agnostic, and one Jew. Though not very practicing and
Are there Racist blacks? yes, We've had our share of dealing with That garbage too, both blacks and browns...but it's not Anywhere Near the
widespread yes uppity sanitized hidden white racism, that yes Superiority complex. And I will say,
majority of it has MORE TO DO WITH "CLASS" than Anything...the two do NOT work in a vacuum.
So yes in Many regions there is Blatant white privelege where the System is concerned, and this will Vary State to State to Rural verses Urban, FACT.
In my state it runs in what we call "pockets", some areas are diverse both economically And Racially and there is Less problems there, in areas
where there is majority if what I call Old School Whites they are Segregated by economics and Race and they are Blatantly STRUCTURED TO FEED WHITE
PRIVELEGE in what is called DISTRICTS. And it's in These areas where you see a Major shift in attitudes, arrogance and forced ghettoization of
people of color, worse than what they do with Poor Whites. FACT.
I don't care What race or Religion you are, I will call you out on it, whether it's an attack on whites by color or attacks on color by whites. I
have TWO DAUGHTERS, ONE WHITE ONE BROWN and I LOVE THEM BOTH THE SAME. And I AS A MOTHER have SEEN the SHIAT that whites do, to my own Daughter,
When she was just a KID.
So don't give me that crap that white privelege doesnt exist...that's a LIE.
And My daughters people have more damn rights to BE here than ALL IF US EURO CENTRIC and NEVER forget that. And yet, She has more wisdom and
understanding of what Racism and Privelege and Respect is than most, as do my other two who Always come to the defense of kids of color when they SEE
firsthand the Racism by White adults,
Like Many a morning when they take public Bus to a Charter school and WHITE bus drivers will harass the kids of color, who GO TO SAME SCHOOL. And Not
because these kids are bad, they just Brown, or Black. KIDS. My kids see it All the time,
One Mexican kid last semester because he was ten cents short on fare and so were Several white kids, got Kicked off bus like a Dog by a White bus
driver and this is a Long ass bus ride. My kids got off with him in Solidarity, they waited one hour for the next bus with this kid. My youngest is
only 13. My daughter who is prepping for college, was so livid that when She got home she called the bus station and filed a former complaint on
behalf of this kid and for several weeks my kids watched out for him. Cont
