Brooklyn Attitude starts us with what used to be the racist but in denial Freeper line:
White privilege is the imaginary benefit supposedly bestowed only to whites that is used to rationalize the poor performance of blacks resulting from behaviors encouraged by their self destructive culture.equaviator puts it a bit more pointedly
Seems like all that “White Privilege” comes down to is having a majority of the population being more intelligent and having more common sense than the rest. Who’s fault is that, I wonder?A brief digression for IronJack, who discusses logical fallacies while using a strawman fallacy:
There's a term in Logic for an assertion that is so vague as to be unarguable. I don't recall what it is, but that's exactly what "white privilege" is -- by design.aquila48 explains that prejudices are all true:
There's also the logical fallacy of Circular Reasoning, by which you present an assertion that is itself supposed to constitute proof of the assertion. In other words, the simple fact that you make the accusation is sufficient to prove it. If you argue against "white privilege," it's only because you're imbued with ... you guessed it ... white privilege.
See how neatly that works out?
It’s basically a premise grounded in reality that generally speaking when given a choice most people would rather interact with a white (or asian) person than a black.Jonty30 notes that whites are naturally resistant to Communism.
In other word it’s another word for prejudice.
But prejudice doesn’t come out of nowhere - it’s founded on persistent and abundant experience,i.e. reality.
And it’s for that reason that despite all the anti-discrimination laws and affirmative action programs, it will not go away.
It’s because whites are in the way of the communist takeover of the entire political structure.So Russians are...?
gdzla doesn't bother to think too hard:
One reason really. Jealousy.knarf lays out the history.
In the 1600's, white people dominated all known technology and sciences of that timeYeah...whites only have the 1800s on. Otherwise, you need to check out what was happening in China, and Islam, and Mali among others.
In the 1700's, white people dominated all known technology and sciences of that time
In the 1800's, white people dominated all known technology and sciences of that time
and even in the 1900's, white people dominated all known technology and sciences of that time
You can point out a colored achievement here and there, but as a race, black people never did anything for humanity on any large scale
(All the Otis elevators were a monopoly and yes, DID benefit humanity ... but the subject is white privilege, not individual achievement(s) .. )
jsanders2001 has a boring list, but I liked this one:
# 2 whites are too nice and tolerant these days after years of being fed PC, fairness for all no matter who tries harder, equality / affirmative action, etc... Maybe if we ‘d start throwing homos from the roofs and stoning people we’d get some respect again.Clear envy of all that attention ISIS gets.
jsanders2001 also met a racist missionary who thinks African men are just naturally lazy:
I heard a missionary say one time that he noticed one glaring consistency that might explain why Africa has not progressed very far. He said that when he visited any village he noticed that the men always sat around while the women did all the chores. After thinking about it, he said it made perfect sense why they still lived in huts made of cow dungwould and women walk 10 miles for water but never dug wells. They were just lazy in general.PATRIOT1876 mentions bad music, Walmart, having children, and rascals, as reasons why blacks fail:
When I see a black person sitting right in front of the door of Walmart playing fecal Section 8 ghetto “music” waiting for their 13 your kid in good health riding around inside on a rascal, I thinkarmydawg505 knows whiteness is America:
“Black Entitlement Attitude”.
There is a more simple answer to why whites are blamed for everything: Those doing the blaming hate America to the point of wanting her destroyed. The best way to do that is to destroy the dominant class, to demand radical changes in the most basic, proven norms and to foment discontent, radicalism and violence to get their way.This I Wonder32460 bears the burden of the world's sins:
Yes, the privilege of being accused of being the cause behind all the evil in the world, all because of the of lack melatonin.This I Wonder32460 is hilariously close to being correct:
I suppose it was white privilege that allowed whites to end slavery in the USA. Unfortunately it is not white privilege that allows slavery to exist nowadays elsewhere it the world.This I Wonder32460 one last time, with Freep's favorite meme:
Who introduced the western world to the concept enslaving black people?Chattel slavery, the extra nasty kind America practiced against the blacks, was all Europe, baby!
How long until CodeJockey's position is what all Freepers say?
Naw... It’s because (and everyone knows but no one can say it) the Caucasian race is genetically superior to the Negro race in terms of intellect and cognitive ability.
Sure there are dumb whites and brilliant blacks but those are at the extremes of the curve.
