Quick Takes – The White Privilege Myth: In Academia; In The Military; In Incessantly Idiotic Pop Music

     Another “quick takes” on items where there is too little to say to make a complete article, but is still important enough to comment on.

     The focus this time: The Miasma of Whiteness is everywhere!!1!

     First, a little mood music:

     Carrying on…

     What better way of pushing the meme that “Whiteness” is a “system” that oppresses people like some invisible miasma than at a White Privilege Conference for teachers!  Of course, it a bit #problematic!

     Why? Due to there being too many White people at the White Privilege conference!

“Disaffected participants in the 2016 White Privilege Conference (WPC) have taken to Twitter to complain that the conference was, ironically, too white and was actually filled to the brim with white supremacy.

“Adopting the hashtag #WPCSoWhite, inspired by the recent #OscarsSoWhite campaign, Twitter users claimed the conference that was supposed to battle white privilege instead served to entrench it.”

     The Left will always find offense.  Everything is always racist.  “Privilege” will always be the ready excuse to whine.

     But this is just a problem with academia, right?

     Wrong.

     It is now one of the core challenges for out military!

“[S]oldiers in the 67th Signal Battalion at Fort Gordon, Georgia, were subjected to a ‘white privilege’ briefing, including a PowerPoint presentation instructing the attendees: ‘Our society attaches privilege to being white and male and heterosexual …’

“The slideshow also informed the soldiers: ‘Race privilege gives whites little reason to pay a lot of attention to African Americans.’ It alleged that there are unspecified ‘powerful forces everywhere’ keeping different kinds of people from being valued, accepted, and appreciated, but ‘we act as if it doesn’t exist.’ This alleged privilege creates a ‘yawning divide’ in income, wealth, and dignity.  The material described a mythical African woman who isn’t aware that she’s black until she comes to America, encounters ‘white racism’ and discovers the U.S. is ‘organized according to race.'”

     And just where else does it show up?

     Pop music is all about idiots virtue-signaling.

“Is it possible for a rapper to second-guess himself out of existence?

“Macklemore has a new single, ‘White Privilege II,’ a contemporary sequel of sorts to his song ‘White Privilege.’ And if you ever thought that what hip-hop needed most in 2016 was nine minutes of a self-flagellating Jezebel commenter vortex from the guy who beat Kendrick for a rap Grammy, oh how Macklemore has delivered.”

     Funny how the only White people who think they have “White Privilege” are spoiled no-talent hacks?

     TTFN.

    These people desperately want to be dominated by Islam and Shari’ah.

    This is really stupid, I’ve checked my white privilege thank you and it’s doing fine.

    “Privilege” does not exist ex nihilo. It had to start somewhere with some people. I have no problem with others admitting to the world that my ancestors were more apt, more intelligent, more able, more sophisticated, and much more likely to come out on the winning side of any conflict with their ancestors. If they want to take it back 50 years, 500 years or 5,000 years I am up for that. The better team apparently won the game and took home the trophy. The 2nd place team took home — well — 2nd place.

    If they say the game was rigged, then my ancestors were smarter than theirs and figured out how to rig the game and theirs didn’t. If they say my ancestors were more savage than theirs then that means theirs were more weak than mine. If they say there were more of mine, then that means that mine were simply better at understanding how to use the environment and technology to sustain a greater population. If they say my ancestors had bigger, badder, and more destructive weapons that means than their ancestors were probably stuck in a stone-age existence for 10,000 years past their time.

    No matter how you slice it… they are making the claim for me that their ancestors could not quite hack it when it came to competition for the “privilege” of being on top. They were weaker, ineffective, and overall a fine example of Darwinism in action. Seems to me as if they are pointing the “finger of blame” at the wrong set of ancestors. I’d suggest they have a heartfelt talk with grandma and grandpa and ask them why ~their~ grandmas and grandpas were so pitiful in the game of life.

    Now understand that ~this~ is how ~they~ see the world. This is what ~they~ are admitting happened. Unless, of course, they want to somehow claim that “privilege” just happened along one day from out of nowhere and someone picked it up off the ground and has been using it ever since. Should be an interesting and amusing read.

    The thing that gets my goat: what they are attacking as “White Privilege” is ALL THE VALUES OF WESTERN CULTURE: religion/morality/ethics; education; that (in)famous Protestant Work Ethic; two-parent families who take child-rearing seriously; and so on.

    Cultish tribalism is what they’re pushing – and just LOOK at the world’s societies that are organized on the basis of cults and tribes: Africa, the Islamic states … Third-World Hellholes every one.

    THAT’S WHAT THEY WANT US TO BECOME. For the love of all that’s Holy, why would anyone listen to these shrieking cretins?

      That has been their intent all along.
