Reminder, it does not make one a racist to point out obvious truths. The term “racist” is used to silence truth.
White privilege, or white skin privilege, is the societal privilege that benefits white people over non-white people in some societies, particularly if they are otherwise under the same social, political, or economic circumstances. With roots in European colonialism and imperialism, and the Atlantic slave trade, white privilege has developed in circumstances that have broadly sought to protect white racial privileges, various national citizenships and other rights or special benefits.wiki
It’s a subject that was first written about extensively in 1988 by Peggy McIntosh, who was then a Wellesley College women’s-studies scholar. In a paper entitled White Privilege and Male Privilege: A Personal Account of Coming to See Correspondences Through Work in Women’s Studies, she listed 26 examples of white privilege. She asked herself, “on an everyday basis, what do I have that I didn’t earn?”, resulting in a clear list based on personal experience that helped people to understand how privilege works. These examples have been pored over by students and academics ever since and are among the most globally cited on the subject.Harpers Bazaar
Here are the first three:
1. I can if I wish arrange to be in the company of people of my race most of the time.
Black folks have been segregating themselves off for years to advance their causes. No one in America is denied the freedom to gather with whomever they please, whenever they please.
So the next time Black people dealing with Black issues want to have a private space to do so, let’s close the door and do what we have to do for our own safety. Since we know that we’ve been trained to think of White needs first, when we start to feel that historical discomfort (aka slave guilt) about excluding non-Black people, lets remind ourselves that focusing on meeting White needs over our own Black lives was a survival skill we learned during slavery. But we ain’t settling for slavery no more. It’s time we learned a new set of skills—ones that are designed to meet our needs first. Just like every other healthy community does. So go ahead. Plan your private Black meeting spaces. Our community needs them. Everywhere and everyday.Afro State Of Mind
And they do. They have their own college fraternities:
And they have predominately black Freemason Lodges. Blacks may say that Prince Hall Lodges are necessary because they aren’t welcome in “accepted” Lodges. That may have been the case hundreds of years ago but ol’ HB can state for a fact, they aren’t recognized because they beat their initiates senseless with belts, fist and paddles.
They operate like a gang, not Freemasons.
2. If I should need to move, I can be pretty sure of renting or purchasing housing in an area which I can afford and in which I would want to live.
Key word, “afford”. This isn’t a black problem, it’s an everyone problem. And why is it a problem? That’s life, you live where you can afford.
Make good life choices, be a good neighbor and paying your bills will get anyone a house anywhere.
Unfortunately, not everyone wants these fine ‘Muricans living next to them…
The choices these fine young citizens make keep them where they are, not whitey.
3. I can be pretty sure that my neighbors in such a location will be neutral or pleasant to me.
The dingbat McIntosh is implying that white folks aren’t neighborly to black folks when they move in. That may be true… .001% of the time. But overwhelmingly no decent cracker get’s their neck hairs up when these guys move in.
But if this guy moves in? Not so much…
But we hear he’s working on it…
This is Part 1 of many to come. We’ll address the remaining 23 in future postings…
Now, the really important news:
Did ya hear? Beavis and Butthead are making another movie!
The iconic characters themselves revealed the news in a short clip shared online this week. The film will be a follow-up to Paramount Pictures’ Beavis and Butt-Head Do America (1996). Rather than go the theater route for the new flick, however, the sequel will be released on Paramount+, the studio’s upcoming streaming service soon to take over for CBS All Access.Loudwire
Not so nice.
On Anti-Asian Hate Crimes: Who Is Our Real Enemy?
Today in reaction to the series of attacks on our elders, many enraged Asians are calling for the immediate arrest of the perpetrators of violence while demanding the most punitive charges be made. “Send a message,” they say. And I have to wonder, “Weren’t we just demanding we defund the police in solidarity with Black Lives Matter?”AR
The woke takeover of children’s toys
Hasbro said it is ‘making sure all feel welcome in the Potato Head world by officially dropping the Mr from the Mr Potato Head brand name and logo to promote gender equality and inclusion’. Children will still be able to dress their Potato Heads with male and female features and clothing, however.Spiked
Hasbro announced that by this summer they will be releasing the Miss Hahnkompf for the really confused…
When they actually market that thing, you saw it here first. Color here.

US launches first airstrike under Biden Admin
Thursday, the US launched an airstrike in Syria that targeted Iran-backed militia groups — the first military action taken by the new Biden administration.This Ain't Hell
The lefts polititurds sh*t the bed when President Trump did it. Biden? Crickets…
Speaking of Biden…
‘My Secret Service sources tell me Biden is in bad shape, it’s not a joke’…
“Well, they call it the Secret Service for a reason, but I maintain a lot of contacts outside of even law enforcement, and I’m telling you, from what I’ve heard from people in my network, everyone knows how bad it is. Everyone. It’s not a mystery. It is the worst-kept secret in the White House. And how they can — think about this. We are only in the second month of this. How bad is this going to be four years from now? This is a serious problem. It’s not a joke.”Citizen Free Press
