It does not make one a racist to point out the truth.
Back in 1988 a self loathing old white broad penned “the most globally cited” examples of white privilege. Twenty-six of them to be exact. They are all, thoroughly stupid.
19 thru 21:
19. If a traffic cop pulls me over or if the IRS audits my tax return, I can be sure I haven’t been singled out because of my race.
Profiling can go many different ways and one would have to be Level 5 detarded (and dishonest) to claim it doesn’t serve its purpose.
Let’s break it down:
As you can clearly see, profiling works in many ways and affects black and white folks. When properly utilized, it serves a purpose, which is crime prevention.
As far as the IRS is concerned, they’re thieves and won’t single anyone out based on race. However, if you make decent money, and they don’t feel like you’re duping them enough of it, you may want to find a tax lawyer who’s name ends in “stein”, “berg” or “man”. Just sayin’…
Taxation is one of the vilest, most criminal acts known to man, IMHO.
20. I can easily buy posters, postcards, picture books, greeting cards, dolls, toys, and children’s magazines featuring people of my race.
Well, not so much these days. White posters, white postcards (who the heck sends postcards?), white picture books, white greetings cards, white dolls, white toys, and any magazine with white people in it, are bad joojoo these days. Thanks media!
Apparently white folks are horrible racist devils. Who knew?
Things really have changed since 1988. But there are still plenty of fools to pity…
21. I can go home from most meetings of organizations I belong to feeling somewhat tied in, rather than isolated, out-of-place, outnumbered, unheard, held at a distance, or feared.
Good for you Peggy! We can finally feel safe from those hostile geriatric Mahjong gangs.
Since we’re on the subject of gangsters:

“If you don’t live with the owner of this account, you need your own account to keep watching,” reads the message. It then asks users to either sign up for a trial, or verify their identity with an email or text.
If you’re real tight with the actual account owner, you could just have that person send you that verification code, but you might be in trouble if you’re still using your ex-roommate’s password they gave you five years ago.The Next Web

Chicago suburb to become first city to give Black residents reparations
Evanston, just north of Chicago, voted to approve a groundbreaking measure in 2019 in which the city would financially compensate its Black residents to address the wealth and opportunity gaps they have experienced because of historical racism and discrimination.
Using community donations and revenue from a 3 percent tax collected on the sale of recreational cannabis, the city adopted a reparations fund and pledged to distribute $10 million over 10 years.
“Reparations is the most appropriate legislative response to the historic practices and the contemporary conditions of the Black community. And although many of the anti-Black policies have been outlawed, many remain embedded in policy, including zoning and other government practices,” said Robin Rue Simmons, an alderman in Evanston’s 5th Ward, who introduced the legislation.
“We are in a time in history where this nation more broadly has not only the will and awareness of why reparations is due, but the heart to advance it,” Simmons said.
Under the program’s first phase, qualifying residents would get $25,000 to use toward homeownership, home improvement and mortgage assistance, Simmons said.NBC
Hurray! Everyone wins! 🙁
