    We're talking about white privilege, not Asian women driving. Good grief, the drama from you is a sight to behold.

    By the way, some day - not today because I don't care - you can show me where my hatred and intolerance for Asian women drivers is, and how it is I refuse to accept them. But I'll let you carry on in the meantime with your crying over my comments about Asian women being bad drivers yesterday. Have fun! Buy some tissues.

    Of course not. The President of the United States has no jurisdiction over who police choose to arrest or not arrest. He does not have the power to snap his fingers and fix everything single ****ing problem in the entire country.
    Has he even addressed this supposed issue? If not why not? Ever hear of the bully pulpit?

    Black privilege - Metapedia

    Black privilege manifests itself in numerous forms:

    Blacks have the right to take pride in their race. Whites don't.

    Blacks can never be racist. Whites are always racist, even if they don't try to be.

    Blacks get to play the race card. Whites don't.

    Blacks never have to feel guilty about being black. Whites are trained to feel guilty about being white.

    Blacks have the right to make blacks only organizations like the Black Student Union and the Congressional Black Caucus. Whites don't.

    Blacks have the right to never take responsibility for their own actions. Anything bad which happens to a black person can be blamed on racism or white people. Whites have to take responsibility and apologize for their actions.

    Rich black people have a right to be rich. Rich white people don't.

    Black people have the right to demonize white people. White people don't have the right to demonize black people.

    Black people are excused when they are prejudiced against white people. White people are never excused for prejudice against black people.

    Black people are a "protected class." White people are not.

    Violent crimes by whites on blacks are "hate crimes." Violent crimes by blacks on whites are just "random" crimes.

    Blacks have the right to affirmative action and minority set-asides. Whites have to earn their positions.

    Blacks are "cool." Whites are "squares" and "rednecks."

    Blacks have the right to say words like "nigger," which whites are never allowed to use. They have the right to incessantly repeat the word "nigger" in front of white people, to intimidate them and keep them in their place.

    Blacks can make the most racially insensitive comments and, more often than not, no one blinks twice. They are allowed to insult others without repercussion.[1]

    Blacks can spend their rent money on designer handbags and then complain about how they don’t have the same economic opportunities as everyone else. And they get away with it.[2]

    Black men are sexual supermen. White men are sexually inadequate. Black men have huge penises. White men have small, inadequate penises.

    Blacks have "civil rights". Whites don't.

    Blacks are in prison because of racism. Whites are in prison because they're criminals.

    Black jury members have the right to acquit criminals, if they're black.

    Blacks have the right to put a halt to any policy, statement, symbol, statistic, outcome, word or expression they find offensive. Whites have no such rights.

    Blacks are morally superior to whites.

    "[Blacks] enjoy cultural cache around the world as victors over oppression and the hard reality of what that looks like at this point in world history. The music that they enjoy, the clothes that they wear, their very mannerisms carry a certain amount of gravitas."[3]

    Blacks can assign collective racial guilt to "you white folks." White people cannot do the reverse because that would be racist.

    White people everywhere, and at all times, bear guilt for the crimes of a minority of white people in the past (e.g., slave owners, Adolf Hitler). Making blacks bear guilt, as a race, for the despicable crimes of their criminal minority is stereotyping, racist, and an insult to reason; after all, no one should ever be blamed for the acts of some unrelated person.

    Blacks have "black culture." Whites are not allowed to have white culture.

    African-American studies is a celebration of blackness and black culture. Whiteness studies is a demonization of white people and white culture.

    White people need to undergo diversity/sensitivity training. Black people don't.

    "... any generalization--favorable or unfavorable--about any minority that someone does not like is by definition "racist" and deserves to be suppressed--as long as it is said by a white person. Black diversity consultants, in contrast, can parade, without a shred of empirical evidence, the grossest racial and ethnic stereotypes with virtual impunity."[4]

    It's racist to point out racism by blacks. It's never racist to point out racism by whites.

    Whites have to walk on eggshells around blacks. Blacks don't give a **** what whites think.

    Blacks have the right to riot and commit violent acts in response to perceived grievances. White people have to obey the law at all times.

    Blacks have the right to never be portrayed as criminals or low-lifes in films or on TV. Bad guys on the screen must always be white.

    Blacks have the right to never be ridiculed, mocked, belittled or laughed at. Whites have no such right.

    Black criminals have the right to have their race censored in media reports.

    Facts which cause blacks embarrassment or cast them in a bad light must be suppressed. Facts which cause whites embarrassment or cast them in a bad light are reported as is.

    Blacks can silence and intimidate whites by calling them racist. Whites can't silence and intimidate blacks because that would be racist.

    Forcing whitey to apologize shows black power and clout. Whites can never force blacks to apologize because that would constitute a lynching.

    Whites are held to a system of 'sensitivity' requirements that do not apply to blacks.

    "Whites are monitored, pestered, and punished for preposterous reasons--for a look, for an innocent word, for wearing a T-shirt, for expressing a plausible argument--but blacks can say almost anything with perfect impunity."[5]

    "In discussions of race between black people and white people the conscious black person is always right; is always the ultimate authority on questions having to do with race and racism; must always be regarded as the ‘injured party,’ or the oppressed. . . . [Whites] cannot possibly be expected to be objective about questions of race."[6]

    Blacks may work for explicitly racial goals but whites may not.

    Blacks are permitted to notice race. Whites are not.

    "It is quite acceptable for either party to explicitly go after the black, Hispanic, or even the Jewish vote. In fact both parties gain an indispensable moral authority by doing so. But it is absolutely verboten for either party, or any white candidate, to appeal to whites as a racial identity group. Racial identity is simply forbidden to whites in America and across the entire Western world. Black children today are hammered with the idea of racial identity and pride, yet racial pride in whites constitutes a grave evil. Say 'I'm white and I'm proud' and you are a National Socialist."[7]

    A black person who punches a white person is a hero standing up to oppression. A white person who punches a black person is a racist.

    It can be publicly admitted that blacks are superior to whites in certain pursuits (i.e. basketball). It can never be publicly admitted that whites are superior to blacks in other pursuits (i.e. winning Nobel prizes in science).

    When blacks are overrepresented in a desirable field, it is due to their abilities. When whites are overrepresented in a desirable field, it is due to racism. When blacks are overrepresented in an undesirable field, it is due to racism.

    Probably the head of the KKK. They decided to switch strategies and pretend like white people are being oppressed.

    The vast majority of the things on Hogwash's little list are utter nonsense. I guess I just don't understand the White Persecution Complex that drips from his every post. Especially considering the unabashed racism he ejaculates on the forum every time he posts.

    I'm not sure how anyone can deny the presence of male white privilege. Saying it does not exist simply does not pass the smell test.

    Yes indeed and that is why Romney is president instead of the black guy with no resume whatsoever and no accomplishments in life at all.

    Where would Obama be without those well-off, educated white grandparents who raised him?

    Romney inherited lots of money. Amazing accomplishment! Totally makes him more qualified than the former senator and constitutional law professor.

    Ah yes, the black president signaled the end of all racism.

    What color is the sky in your world?

    I love how a US and state senator who ran the Harvard Law Review, is a two-time bestselling author and was an attorney and con law professor has "no accomplishments in life at all." Your hackery is showing.
