Skip to comments.White Privilege, White Guilt, White Joke
Posted on 09/15/2008 8:40:03 PM PDT by bocopar
Long ago (somewhere... don't ask me to find it) I wrote that black people would vote for Barack Obama because he's black, while many liberals will vote for him out of white guilt. What do I mean about this exactly? Let's go to a source.
White Privilege, White Entitlement and the 2008 Election by Tim WiseMan, I'm gonna have at this fool's essay.
For those who still cant grasp the concept of white privilege, or who are constantly looking for some easy-to-understand examples of it, perhaps this list will help.
White privilege is when you can get pregnant at seventeen like Bristol Palin and everyone is quick to insist that your life and that of your family is a personal matter, and that no one has a right to judge you or your parents, because "every family has challenges," even as black and Latino families with similar "challenges" are regularly typified as irresponsible, pathological and arbiters of social decay.

The greatest privilege a white person could possibly enjoy is not reading this article.
And some will never vote for a black man for president due to racism. For example, my stepfather, a life long Democrat, wouldn’t consider it.
Um...Mr author...does the name "Margaret Sanger" ring a bell with you? And why do so many black women agree with her?
I like this guy. How did I miss Bob Parks before?
Which one? Parks is a right-winger dissecting a lefty’s article. I REALLY WISH people would read what’s posted rather than try to figure it out from a snippet.
You should, though.
Bob Parks is a great conservative and rips the OP a new... well...
This IS a family forum...
I guess when 70 out of 100 have no daddy and 90% of those use the State as the Father financially...then there is a difference, particularly when the alternative is 20%.
I don’t think whites view blacks as monolithic, but I do think that a lot of whites think they know how a lot of blacks view things. When Obama 1st popped on the scene he was fresh and new and whites thought he was different and then along came the Rev. Wright fiasco. Then people kinda pulled back and maybe thought Obama wasn’t so different after all.
Tim laughs all the way to the bank at not having to do real work for a living. White privilege is real, for people like Tim Wise.
Good article and it does rip Liberal whites.
The only Privilege is growing up without the “MYTH” of selling out. A White Person in the trailer park “isn’t keeping it real”..threir called blue collar. They work hard and hopefully know they can improve themselves. Through education and the free market. I don’t think I have ever heard someone say you “sold out” because of going to College. You speak to “White”??? What does that mean?
Dress speak act and you are judged on your actions. If you are dressed,acting, and speaking like a thug then well guess what? Like if a normal citizen wlaked around dressed as a Police officer, Talking like one, acting like one. Would you Jusdge that person comming at you fast on a dark street??
Thanks for the warning.
I’m guessing the racist vote is probably only 5 or 6 percent with maybe half of that being undecideds and rats. That sounds small, but it’s actually hugh. The rats had little or nothing to gain in this election by nominating a black man. Blacks already vote 90% rat anyway. Long term however it might help keep them on the plantation.
of the estimated 5-6% white racist vote, I’d bet 4-5% are lifelong Dems who would sooner vote for a black than a Republican.
Something tells me Bristol Palin is going to graduate high school and probably go on to college, too. And she’s marrying her boyfriend.
I just don’t see “drain on society” on her future CV.
Me neither. Im personally glad she is keeping the baby. That’s a good family!
