Teaching Kids to Lower Their Standards

Today, in colleges and high schools around the country, teachers are being encouraged to share the concept of “white privilege” with their students. White privilege is all of the unseen and unnoticed benefits that come along with having white skin, you see. If you’re white, you just naturally have an easy life. You aren’t bullied, you get good grades, you don’t have to worry about being arrested, and you can cruise through life without ever once being the victim of a “micro-aggression.”

This is all well and good, but what are we getting out of the adoption of this philosophy? It seems that what we’re really saying is that it doesn’t matter what you do with your life, you don’t stand a chance if you aren’t white. So if you’re black, don’t worry about working hard or making the right choices. Don’t worry about trying to improve yourself. You’re stuck. The white man is never going to let you succeed. You may as well give up now. There, there, you can always turn to the helping hand of government. Remember to vote Democrat!

Hard work has turned many a life around. But no one wants to talk about it anymore. We just want to rage about the unfairness of the system. Well, guess what? There are all kinds of “privilege.” We may all be equal in the eyes of God, but none of us are born with the exact same set of advantages. Some are born rich. Some are born to a loving, two-parent household. Some are born to parents who have built up a business they are going to pass down when their children get old enough.

But even if you were born with the wrong color skin in the wrong city to the wrong parents, you can realize your dreams. History is written by men and women who have created something from nothing. Sometimes the underdog really does win. But it takes work. Dedicated, focused discipline. And it can change your life.

What kind of privilege did Oprah Winfrey have? She isn’t white. She wasn’t born rich. She wasn’t particularly attractive. But yet she became one of the richest people in the world. How? By whining about all the advantages she lacked? No. By tapping into her innate talents and maximizing them with hard work.

We need to be very careful about teaching this concept of privilege. Maybe it exists and maybe it doesn’t. But if it does, there’s nothing anyone can do about it. And we aren’t doing black children any favors by telling them the system is stacked against them. No one wants to play when the game is rigged.

But if we teach the message that hard work, study, and focused discipline can overcome even the greatest obstacles, we’ll see this “privilege” for what it really is: the smallest possible ingredient for a life of rich, fulfilling success.

  1. White privledge? Where do I sign up for that one? Is there some sort of ID card? Will it get me through the airport security checkpoints without “extra screening”? I mean, I must at least get some sort of tax write off, right? Most rediculous term ever conceived of in our current society.

    • Agreed…except I believe it’s the SECOND, maybe THIRD most rediculous term..first would HAVE TO be :Progressive Liberalism, followed CLOSELY by “Politically Correct”!!!!

    • This is the way I was taught as well. God speed

    • My God I love this. Everything you said I can appreciate because I know a lot of us have been through all this also. We didn’t sit and wait for it to come to us. Thank you for such a great post. I hope some of these idiots out there read it and learn something from it. THANK YOU

        • THANKS, my decades in the USAF were not wasted after all, I was taught the same
          picked a lot of beans in the summer

        • I know others have enjoyed reading it and yes I’d like to share it with my friends. thank you so much.

        • Michael Dennewitz

          I didn’t have it that “hard” but I grew up on a farm in the 50s, with 8 brothers and 3 sisters, and I watched my father (may he RIP) work his ass off for the love, family.. Bless your souls!!

        • I also grew up on a farm (cotton farm) in the 1950’s and it was hard work (as others well know). My children did not have the physical labor a hard life like that demands, but they had a lot of family pressure to study (education was their job, and duty, to our Family). Work has historically provided the rewards many now call privilege. They ignore the fact that it is also their privilege to work hard (not by stealing another persons industry, but putting the sweat equity into their own life like the ones they envy had to do).

        • Shofar threading

          You are an inspiration — and yes, I will gladly send on to those on my personal list. Thank you.

        • I mowed a lot of yards, threw a number of newspapers and bagged thousands of groceries!

      • Not likely to read through it. They’re attention span isn’t that great. Regretfully, I don’t see it getting any better in my lifetime. Thanks for the great post!

    • My life is so similar to yours. I started working on a farm at 12 years old. I worked every day during the summer and the weekend after school. I paid my way through vocational school. I didn’t get my dream job due to Affirmative Action.Life was hard but it got better with hard work. I shouldn’t have to apologize for hard work and white skin. The only privilege I had was the opportunity to succeed if I worked hard enough. Every American has this privilege, even illegals.

    • No truer words were ever spoken. Being in management for 30 years affirmative action forced me to hire people not qualified for the job just so I could then hire those that not only could do the work but were willing to do so.

    • Brother, you need to write these principles for success in a book and promote it far and wide. I’m also privileged and worked hard all my life to get what I have with no hand-outs. Gives one a good feeling to do it on your own. Nobody owns you. It’s called freedom.

      • Got THAT right Brother!!

      • That dirty “F” word. How dare you not want to be a government dependent and go off making your own way. You are a disgrace to the collective. Your book would be confiscated and burned for the very thought of a “good feeling”. You must be a victim somehow. There must be something the government can do better for you than you could ever do. Oh, these antiquated individualist and their talk of this nonsensical freedom. Hail the collective!

    • I hear ya’ Patriot, I lost a job in construction years back (actually “laid off”, big difference, NOT) to the “affirmative action” crap, yet one of the laziest, most inept “man of color”, whom anyone could work circles around, and would go out of his way to avoid anything that remotely resembled work, managed to stay on, and only got fired after he destroyed a dump truck!

      • One trade that seems not as enthralled with ‘Affirmative Action’, is the piloting of commercial aircraft. Seems that even the most ‘Progressive’ liberal leftists are not anxious to entrust their transportation between X and y, with the ‘affirmative action’ qualifications of their pilots. How narrow minded they become…. when it’s their own interests at stake.

        Government bureaucracy so encouraged by the elitists, does have it’s brief moments of sanity, especially when it concerns their own lives. They even more dread being mutilated for life, losing their self admired, remaining attractive qualities..

    • Well, said, TPP. Only not all of them are racists. Some are just morons

    • AMEN , BROTHER ! ! !

    • Man you just said it all nothing I could say that would be better.

    • This needs printed, in large quantities and passed to the baristas working at Starbucks who follow the instructions of their LIBERAL CEO.
      ……or anywhere else current liberalism allows passing on the best and brightest (NO MATTER THEIR RACE) to qualify for affirmative action or any other quotas.
      Where someone feels the need to complain, I might ask them what exactly they failed to meet any of your examples and how they deserve better for failure.
      KUDOS !!!

    • Good call ’em as they are. The Race politician has not interest that others would succeed. In fact they speak with forked tongue.

    • robert h siddell, jr

      Ditto except the Democrats shut off the GI Bill for Vietnam Era Vets in 1985 so I got to use only one half year of the four years I had earned…Thanks a lot Commies!

      • Well actually the VA cut off flight training benefits around ’78/’79. And now they’re expecting a pilot shortage? Give me a break!

    • Shofar threading

      My one comment after ‘WOW’ is to suggest you send a registered copy to the White House. In fact, a copy to each one of his elitist snobs.

    • well said! love it.

    • White Privilege is making good, if not the best, of your opportunities because unlike Black Privilege the White Privileged don’t have that vast liberal (and black leadership) created plantation safety net from which there is next to no escape, slavery with a very generous master.

    • Goblin The Weasel Perrins

      “What you call ‘privilege’ is just me being better than you.’”

      So much for not being racist.

      • TeaParty Patriot


        .
        What is racist about admitting that I am better than you because of the entire list of things I did to mitigate the bad things in my life and take advantage of the opportunities?

        Don’t throw around terms that you cannot define it shows that you are one of the intellectually challenged 0webomb supporters.
        .

        • Goblin The Weasel Perrins

          You are saying that “they” (non-whites) have no attention span and are not doing the things you are. Therefore you are better because you are white. That sounds pretty racist to me. And what documentation do you have that whites (only) do those things and non-whites don’t? If you think that there is no racial discrimination in this country, you might want to check that out.

          • TeaParty Patriot

            .
            .
            Your pen name WEASEL is very appropriate. Did you chose it or did someone who read you dribble pin it on you?

            NO, you are the one who s racist Nowhere in my response did I mention Race or color YOU are the one who injected race and yes your response to my comment IS RACIST. I did not mention attention span you did. I did not say that whites only do these things. That is your conclusion, In fact there are many whites who do not do these things or use the same principles and they also end up on the dole. AND do I think there is racial discrimination in this country? YOU DAMN WELL BETTER BELIEVE IT BUT I OVERCAME it with hard work and initiative No-where do I see set asides for WHITE people that would like small business loans, or openings in schools of higher learning. or requirements that some government subsidized housing must be occupied by OTW. I don’t see any affirmative action for WHITES, I don’t see any upward mobility for WHITES. Can you imagine the uproar if there was a WHITE Miss America?, If there was a WHITE entertainment channel?, If there were WHITE entertainment awards? If there were a WHITE congressional caucus? If the WHITES insisted that 88% of EVERY sports team from professional all the way to pre-elementary school (football, basketball, baseball be WHITE? If they held a parade and the sponsors declared that people of color were to be murdered? the uproar If a WHITE minister had declared god damn America?

            I could go on and on but I think YOU, weasel get the point. I think you had better research your subject BEFORE castigating others Maybe you don’t get the point. If you were able to think beyond your pinocchio nose you would see the truth for yourself.

          • TeaParty Patriot

            .
            Nothing Narcissistic about stating how I earned the living that I am currently enjoying. Just giving an example of what works and should be substituted for the failed lifestyle that does not work.

          • Goblin The Weasel Perrins

            Saying you are better than me.

          • TeaParty Patriot


            You’re being ignorantly repetitive But if it makes you feel better YES I am a damned site better than you.

            To begin with I am not a troll named weasel that continues to make an ass out of itself. From now on my silence to your asinine, juvenile posts will mean that you are not worth an argument or even discussing a subject.

          • Goblin The Weasel Perrins

            You have no reason to say that you are better than me or anyone else. We are all equal in the Lord’s sight. Plus, you know nothing about me, what challenges I have met and what work I have done. You are just making assumptions. I am not any more a troll than are you. Just read your last post.

    • Great comment – it’s better than the article, with all due respect to the writer. I will print it and use it as a defense every time i spot white good in a child or student. Thanks.

        You’re welcome. Use it anywhere you desire. The more it circulates the more people will identify with the statements and realize how far PC has corrupted our community and standards.

    • Sir, yours is just about the best, “Right On!” post I’ve read on the internet yet! I loved it so much, I copied and pasted it into a Word file so I will never lose it. Thank you!!!

      • TeaParty Patriot

        Kevin, Better yet, email it to your entire mailing lists and post it to as many websites as you encounter and it is appropriate, you do not have to give me credit, you can customize it and add some of your own early job experiences, For instance did you every caddy? When was the first instance you learned the value of savings and being broke. Mine was right after I entered the USAF I had a change of duty assignment and I spent all my money. I had to ask my Dad for a loan of $20 which held me over to the next pay day. Once I paid Dad off I NEVER again was broke, I ALWAYS had at least the equivalent of one paycheck in my pocket for “life events”. Any toy “motor cycle, boat, car, vacation that was purchase was either purchased with savings or we did without. by choice I never had a credit card until I was 59 years old and the only reason I got it then was that my employer required me to travel when at times I had to rent a car. Car rental companies will not rent you a car without a credit card, they will not even take a cash deposit. My employer vouched for the credit card in my name and when I retired I just continued the card. It is paid off EVERY MONTH. I keep it now because I can get cash discounts on gasoline, groceries, movies and more when charged.

  3. Yeah… ok so everything I WORKED FOR is part of white privledge? I guess for the morons that coined that phrase white privledge is paying taxes so they can sit on thier asses. Please take the wornout race card and just burn it like you liberals burned your draft cards back in the day…

    • Take another look at what TeaParty Patriot said:

      ‘What you call ‘privilege’ is learning to get up in the morning prepared to work

      ‘What you call ‘privilege’ is living in a 2 room paper tar shack with my 5 siblings and parents

      ‘What you call ‘privilege’is living without A/C until I was 43

      ‘What you call ‘privilege’ is working on a farm carrying water to field hands at age 7.

      ‘What you call ‘privilege’ is selling newspapers on the corner every evening after school”

      If we repeat sentiments like this to as many people as possible, it won’t be long before that term will be a phrase that all self reliant, self respecting people will wear like a badge of honor.

  4. “What kind of privilege did Oprah Winfrey have? She isn’t white. She wasn’t born rich. She wasn’t particularly attractive. But yet she became one of the richest people in the world.”

    Brilliant advice. Tell em all that all they have to do is emulate Oprah.

    • Colin Powell grew up in Harlem and became the highest ranking military person in the US, then the ranking Cabinet member, Secretary of State. The truth about ‘privilege’ is hard work and determination will get you there. I grew up on a dairy farm. Milked 144 cows every morning before school. I probably started when I was about 10. I started working in a café as a busboy when I was 15 in addition to milking the cows – and playing football and playing saxophone in the band. At 18 I joined the Air Force and went to Viet Nam. I stayed in the AF for 10 years so I could go to University. I left the AF and continued my studies with the GI Bill to earn my Masters degree and D.Sc. At one point I ran a company with 600 employees I retired early at the top of my Federal Civilian rank. No one ever helped me in my quest.

      • Yes, we can all find shining examples of drive, intelligence, charm and success. But they are a tiny tiny portion of the population. Especially if they come from poverty stricken homes with little hope, funding for education or encouragement for a better life.

        • TeaParty Patriot

          .
          How much more poverty stricken can you get than 7 people living in a 2 room tar paper shack during the depression.
          .

        • Excuse me, Morton, but again we meet, and not to my liking due to your narcissistic self addiction, but all that aside, just exactly what the fuck is you negative point?

      • KIS- Do you want a doctor who has a minimal education? Do you want a mechanic who doesn’t pay attention? Will you accept a cop who makes up laws?

  5. That Negro needs to go back to Kenya.

    • Kick his and his whole family out of a c-47 @ 30,000 ft with no chute

      • Including his mother in law that lives with them in our White House. Why haven’t they arrested this guy yet? Why is he allowed to write laws and change our constitution?

        • to answer your question congress is afraid that if they do anything to obama the black will raise up in a civil war between White and blacks, so they all sit on their backside like a scared four old being punished for spilling a glass of milk. Or like the three monkeys:
          one see no evil, one speaks no evil, one hears no evil. In other words just stupid morons of the rich in DC government.

          • See, speak, nor hear “affirmative action” ??

          • I really think they were bought off or threatened.

          • Well that would be great as far as I am concerned. There are many more whites than blacks and they want to riot? Ok! We would then see the difference between those blacks who are with this country as a whole and those who want to see the destruction of it instead! It would reduce the ghetto population tremendously!

          • I’d say bring it on!

        • Affirmative action?? :-O

    • Bobtrhn you’re wrong Obama is bringing them here by the boat load.

    • That 50% white, 43% Arab, 7% African negro needs to be arrested for fraud & impersonating the president. He’s ineligible. I work for his arrest.

      • That’s what is needed but who and when is able to do it. How do we do it?

        • You think his butt buddy Holder is about to do ANYTHING?
          That’s laughable. And the appointee? Where did she come from? A privileged black college graduate with ZERO life experience.

    • I don’t think he has ever been to Kenya (they call ME African-American but I’ve never been to Africa), but I agree with TeaParty Patriot 100%. Having said that, if the definition that TPP and others are giving is true, then I have been enjoying White Privilege all my life!
      Who knew?

  6. I am white and the federal government strangled the only privilege I had with the EPA’s irresponsible regulations.

  7. This is the biggest pile of BS I ever heard, White has it easy makes me laugh. I am white, on disability who is having a major problem of trying to stretch out my SS to meet the minor bills. Here is the problem what the government thinks you should receiver and they send to you is NOT enough to cover the bills, nor put food on the table till my next check arrives. So some bills has to get paid every other month and still eat either hotdogs $.97 a pack or cheap baloney 3 times a day.

    By the thrived week of the month I and my wife are out of medicine, have to cancel Dr. appointments dur to the car not having either the gas or the insurance to move it.

    Right the white people of this nation like myself are rich and need nothing is a flat out lie and this story was written by an idiot.

  8. Raymond J Ambrozaitis

    Having read the report on Millennials being quite unskilled I hold out little if any hope for their children

  9. Who said this some idiot in Washington DC

  10. There are political people who advance themselves by perpetuating the myth of “white privilege” . It plays well to people with a “victim mentality”. A belief that the difficulties they experience flow from White oppression and this leads to a dependence upon the good graces of government to develop ” programs” to level the field. Leading (Liberal) universities, like Notre Dame and Dartmouth, among othersk …. are now actually teaching courses exploring “WHITE PRIVILEGE”. This is complete nonsense but it plays well to people who prefer to think of themselves as “victims”. “Of course, it’s clear that these “life changing” opportunities come from the Democrat Party. …. that’s how votes are bought and that is how the country Is divided with groups pitted against each other … whites vs blacks , women vs men, poor vs rich, religion vs religion , natives vs immigrant, and young vs old. That will be the enduring legacy of the Democrat Party and the American Progressive movement…… just to buy votes and power. Let’s be sure we don’t forget.

    • Lets call it the lack of privilege that those who experience poverty experience. Would that make you more comfortable to know that blacks are about 5 times more likely to experience poverty than whites ? It is NOT that they are not as smart – it is that they are lacking privilege.

      • Waaaaaaa….put that damned worn out “Race Card” back in the deck, better yet, burn the damn thing!!
        It would “make us more comfortable”, to know you would STOP screaming “Racism”, and get a clue!!!!

      • TeaParty Patriot

        .
        No it is because many of them are lacking the work ethic and ambition to succeed. Plus the fact that many of them have bought into the idea that they cannot succeed because of the non existent “White Privilege Myth”. not many people have been born into homes in more dire poverty than those of us who grew up during the Great Depression. Yet a great many of us have been able to put aside enough to retire upon without depending on the charity of BIG government.
        .

      • Sir, I am Black and Hispanic. Certainly, “people” who come from poverty… as I did … face some difficulties related to that poverty however, success comes from accepting personal responsibility, persistence, hard work, and education. One should not subscribe to victimhood or dependence … in any form. In this country … upward mobility, anything and everything is possible … without dependence upon anything or anyone … particularly government. I see elements of white privilege in our society however, I also see elements of BLACK privilege. Their is “privilege” of all sorts rising up in this country. ALL is abhorrent to me. In spite of my color, my Race, and the poverty of my family, I am proud to tell you my success is a credit to my family and to me. When I was growing up, my family “qualified” for everything … we took NOTHING!!!

        • You deserve everything you have fought for and earned. As do I. But I am not ungracious enough to assume that most people managed to work the system as well as I did. There are very real obstacles and the hardest and most unfriendly are those facing non whites. BTW I am white – and do my best to help those who need help to work the system and get ahead. Most of them are extremely grateful for encouragement and advice.

          • Sir, I hope everyone achieves the success they work to. It is not a matter of being “gracious” or “ungracious”.and I don’t understand … “working the system”. if you mean working hard, getting to school everyday, doing my homework

          • Working the system mean showing those who need it, qualify for the help they have paid for over the years. A lot of it has been made deliberately difficult to comprehend; a lot of the paper work is obtuse and a lot of people are wrongly denied what they are entitled to receive. I do not know why you are so proud to have ‘never accepted anything from the government’. If you have been diligent you have paid into the system for many years as a form of social insurance. You seem to conflate ‘a life of dependence’ with assistance that you have paid for. I personally have never received any kind of assistance from the government – and I have paid maximum FICA and FUTA contributions since aged 21. I have never needed to. But I am glad that I did – because who knows what hand fate might have dealt me.

          • Sir, we are going to agree to disagree … today, no one listens … they just cling to false narratives. Your definition of “working the system” is very creative. EVERYONE knows about the largess of the American system. They don’t need you to tell them … even non-Americans are well informed of the “POT OF GOLD” the awaits them in the U.S. They don’t need you and I to hold their hand and lead them to the goodies. This business about how they are entitled because “they have paid into the system” is just another canard that feeds the false narrative. Surely there are truly needy people … children of sick and truly disabled AND.the old and infirm. All of us in this great nation want to help them. The multi-generational freeloaders need to move on. I DON’T BUY THEIR NONSENSE. . This December, I was in the parking lot of my local Target store. I came across a muscular. Virulent Good looking young man in his 20’s with a sign that read : WILL YOU PARTICIPATE? People were filling his basket with cash. I heard a man ask … What am I participating in? The young man said, ” I need to buy some Christmas presents for my kids.” I froze. There are White Americans who feel an element of guilt because they have done well and others have been left behind. life is tough but, I have no sympathy for those who will not stand up for themselves and their families. I am sure that you and others are fine, well meaning people…. I understand that. I cannot abide canards and well meaning false narratives.

          • The problem for me that you enunciate – is the implication that most people are faking need. Unfortunately for you – and I am not accusing you – is that it is the oldest tight wad justification in the world. There is need – a great deal of it – and I believe I am sufficiently aware to distinguish need from theft.

          • Morton, you continually ride the fence of libturds vs conservatives. You vacillate back and forth, but you probably don’t get it, being the narcissist that you are.

          • No – you’re on the wrong post. I occasionally compare liberals to conservatrolls – but only when they ask.

          • Sorry, Morton, but you couldn’t compare shit to apple butter, as your mind is too fucked up, being the pathetic narcissist you are, based upon your sicko choice of an icon of yourself. You are so sickening, and you can never understand, being the ego maniac, libturd that you are.

          • Never judge a book by its cover. If I did – in your case you would be totally invisible – a delusion.

          • Look everyone, look at this sick minded narcissistic delusional libturd and judge for yourself. He spends half of the day in front of his mirror telling himself how sexy and cool looking he is. And then he waits for his male lover to come over and make his sicko day before he comes here to make his libturd comments. And you have to ask what is wrong with America these days? Really?

          • I think I have enough fans without the sort of rabble you seem to represent Bobbie. And I seriously doubt many people are interested in your sexual fantasies.

        • Lark2, I stand, not behind you, but beside you, based purely upon your most rational and intelligent comment. Keep spreading the word. Some will hear it an do something with it because you are leading by example. Thank you. Damn, man, where are the rest of those like you? Those like you have the power to change the world.

      • Sorry, but you fucked up again by saying that blacks are not as smart as whites. IQ averages prove that, but education can overcome that, if those black kids would even bother to stay in school, let alone study. You are a fucking fool and an idiot.

        • I don’t believe I said anything of the sort. But then not all whites are educated or smart as you have just proved.

    • The libturd democrats would fail totally if it weren’t for their “victims list” that they care so much about, the list they keep building with their lies, bull shit and handouts.

  11. LET’S CALL A SPADE A SPADE. WE HUMANS (PARTICULARLY THOSE OF US BORN AND LIVING HERE IN AMERICA) ARE PRIVILEGED NO MATTER WHO WE ARE. MY DOGS AND CATS HAVE NO CHOICE AS TO WHAT TO DO AND HOW TO LIVE THEIR LIVES. WE DO. ITS CALLED APPRECIATING THE OPPORTUNITY GIVEN TO US ALL IN A NOT ALTOGETHER PERFECT BUT DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY. NO DOUBT- OUR LIVES ARE NOT ALL THE SAME. WE ARE NOT ALL EQUAL. BUT WE DO HAVE EQUAL RIGHTS AND THUS A CLAIM AND CHOICE TO BE OR NOT TO BE ENGAGED AND AN ACTIVE PARTICIPANT IN THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS. AS HUMAN BEINGS WE ARE ALL PRIVILEGED. NOT ALL OF US KNOW IT. NOW YOU DO!

  12. This is garbage and sending the wrong message to our kids
    Anyone can succeed in this world but it requires work’s and commitment. Color of skin should have nothing to do with it. The left or the liberals are putting this white privilege nonsense and obviously driving their racist agenda on these students. Creating this division will bring anarchy.

  13. Political correctness combined with race politicians who do not want the masses to succeed. Charles Barkley had it right when he spoke about crabs in the basket. Not only minorities, but poor whites have some of the same attitudes.

  14. WHERE DO THESE UBER LIBERAL (COMMIE) PROFESSORS GET THIS BULLSHIT?

  15. Don’t tell a stupid liberal that. They’ll burst into flames! “Oh no, we can’t handle the truth!!!!!” They’ll just want to give free handouts and tell everyone to vote democrat! That’s right! Keep everyone DUMB and DEPENDENT!!! That’s the OBOLA way!!!

    • Nah. We don’t have much time for faith based economics.

      • I take it your a liberal? Cause, if you are, WE don’t have much time for self destructive entitlement based liberal economics. The kind that helps bankrupt a nation and weaken it for it’s enemies.

        • Have hope. We will get you off food stamps a.s.a.p. In the meanime grow potatoes behind your back door. I know how your type loves do it yourself advice.

          • I appreciate the concern. BUT. You don’t know anything about me! I probably make more money than you. So when you talk of taking people off food stamps (doesn’t apply to me at all), you make absolutely NO SENSE whatsoever because YOUR type just LOVES to give away everybody else’s money and give no thought as to where it comes from. That way you can feel good about yourself and keep people dependent on the liberal democrat deception. In the meantime, HAVE HOPE, because your kind is going to make things so bad that the people will not take this idiocy anymore. I’m not one of your so-called do it yourselfers, but i’ll bet if society collapses because of the mess caused by liberals, YOU’RE probably gonna wish you grew those potatoes behind YOUR back door. HaHa! You see, I know how YOUR type LOVES handouts!

          • What is funny is that you launch from complaining about me stereotyping you to immediately trying to stereotype me – and every post to me was in fact you stereotyping liberals. You really have to at least try and get over yourself. You might swoon and crash.

          • The best way in dealing with your TYPE, is to redirect your own type of criticism back. It’s almost like child psychology. What is REALLY funny, is that YOU were SO unnerved that YOU HAD TO fall for the bait and start your ineffective diatribe about stereotyping me. It is SO MUCH FUN to read your squirming responses that I almost feel guilty. You’re SO EASY! What’s worse, is that now you keep coming back for more! HaHa! It’s like fishing! Stop while you’re behind. Otherwise, YOU might swoon and crash!

          • Perfect. I shall put you on my fan-mail list. Do you also have lonely heart ache ?

          • That’s funny you should say that! I was about to ask YOU the same! But since you can’t let go and incessantly come back for more, my guess is that this fulfills some sort of inner emptiness. Don’t fret! There will always be opposing view comments out there that should keep you busy and distracted. All you need to do is respond to them. Isn’t that NICE!

          • Could you be a little more original ?

          • Originality has NOTHING to do with it. TRUTH has EVERYTHING to do with it. Don’t fall back on an UNORIGINAL cliche’. It just makes you predictable and boring. Besides, you STILL keep coming back for more! HaHa!

  16. The same people who cry white privilege also cry male privilege when you are a black man. I have worked full 42 years, starting with 4 years in the Navy. I have never asked for anything free and I am tired of liberals thinking I need them to have a good life.
    I grew up with white people so I know the white privilege thing is nonsense.

    • They want to use you to further their agenda. They want you to be one of their useful idiots. You don’t seem to be the type of man who would go along with that.
      Semper Fi, Fair Winds Navy!

  17. That “so called” white privilege is nothing but a racists version of BS. There is no while privilege that guarantees a white person will not get bullied or get a great job or any other privilege. That is what our country is based on – EVERYONE WHO WANT TO WORK FOR A GOOD LIFE CAN ATTAIN IT. But then again there are those who sit back and let the government take care of them and they bitch about what they don’t have because they’re not white. Then again look around at all the successful black and Latino people in TV, entertainment and sports. Anyone who wants what they consider to be “white privilege”, all they have to do is get off their fat duffs and go out and work for it.

  18. There is no “war on women”, but there is definitely a war on white people. It is mostly a cold war, waged with relentless abuse and denigration, the relentless canard of “white privilege” and increasingly pervasive reverse discrimination , euphemistically called “affirmative action”. The ongoing invasion and Reconquista of the Second Mexican War is explicitly intended to displace and dispossess native-born white citizens, and the increasing resurgence of black militancy unprecedented since the 1960s in the aftermath of the contrived Ferguson riots raises the possibility of ethnic cleansing or even genocide.

  19. I am so tired of this “white privilege” crap. I’m white, I didn’t get grades I didn’t earn, I didn’t get to go to college on someone else’s dollar. I worked and paid for my college. My parents didn’t think girls should go to college and so they did not pay for me/ Maybe I should whine about “male privilege” or “black privilege”, but I don’t . I oaid my way as much as I could, and when I couldn’t do that anymore, I joined the Air Force, served my country and earned GI benefits. Not everbody travels the same path and people want different things out of life. Get used to it and stop your whining. We can blame “black privilege” for the election of BO. He disses his mulatto heritage and only claims his blackness. Then he used that to get minority favoritism all through college. So did his wife. So where is the privilege here???? His kids go to private school, mine and my grandchildren do not. His kids will go to top colleges, mine will go into debt to attend leftist run state schools if they are fortunate enough to get a seat behind all the “disadvantaged” minorities and illegal immigrants. There is no “white privilege” in this country unless you count working like a dog to pay for everyone else’s freebies, while you’re constantly being told how selfish and rotten you are.

  20. There you go again, confusing white privilege with what you are taught in school. For all of you fans of this twist on words, the only hard work you need to do in this day and age is sell your soul to the rich robber barons in the Republican Party.

    Take John B, the leader of the House. He works hard golfing and drinking expensive wine. If that becomes too stressful he calls any number of political donors to get a big fat check, but he still has enough energy to vote for their best interests. And the maybe he takes a nap before he calls Frank Luntz where he is told what to say the next day when he has to explain the tax breaks and loopholes he just voted for. No thank you.

  21. COMMON CORE: TEACHES KIDS to LOWER
    their STANDARDS!

    Today,
    in colleges and high schools around the country, teachers are being encouraged
    to share the concept of “WHITE PRIVILEGE” with our Children. White privilege is
    all of the unseen and unnoticed benefits that come along with having white
    skin, you see. If you’re white, you just naturally have an easy life. You
    aren’t bullied, you get good grades, you don’t have to worry about being
    arrested, and you can cruise through life without ever once being the victim of
    a “micro-aggression.”

    This
    is all well and good, but what are we getting out of the adoption of this
    philosophy? It seems that what we’re really saying is that it doesn’t matter
    what you do with your life, you don’t stand a chance if you aren’t white. So if
    you’re black, don’t worry about working hard or making the right choices. Don’t
    worry about trying to improve yourself. You’re stuck. The white man is never
    going to let you succeed. You may as well give up now. There, there, you can
    always turn to the helping hand of government. Remember to vote Democrat!

    Hard
    work has turned many a life around. But no one wants to talk about it anymore.
    We just want to rage about the unfairness of the system. Well, guess what?
    There are all kinds of “privilege.” We may all be equal in the eyes of God, but
    none of us are born with the exact same set of advantages. Some are born rich.
    Some are born to a loving, two-parent household. Some are born to parents who
    have built up a business they are going to pass down when their children get
    old enough.

    COMMON CORE TEXTBOOKS are MISLEADING our CHILDREN

  22. NATIONAL ASSOCIATION for the ADVANCEMENT of WHITE PEOPLE calls “BULL$HYT”

  23. What the hell are these liberals trying to do with our children. Why, kids don’t learn to work hard to get ahead in life, what is wrong with that. What are they teaching them to be lazy, that is trouble, bordem and that turns into a life of crime.

  24. James H. Humphrey

    Very good post, brought back many memories. I started my life on a farm, pumping water, carrying water, picking cotton, driving a farm tractor all day, working the harvest till midnight. Saved from hard farm work by going into the service and later by getting a job and working hard. Now retired and tired but satisfied. All it takes is self worth, not self pity. Proud for you.

    Hard work didn’t get any African Americans into Sigma Alpha Epsilon at Oklahoma U.

  27. Speaking of color, we are not white, white is albino ! We are caucasian . Also the majority of negros say they are black when the majority are brown, such as O’Bama, our first black president is really our first brown president .

  28. Personally, we are people (most of us hopefully) and all designations should be left in the ditch. For example, what is a Negro? A dark skinned person the dictionary says. What is Dark? A color approaching Black; well what one considers approaching black is subjective to their visual capacity. Many people who would be statistically categorized as Black are closer to a shade of Tan, which is not dark and therefore would be closer to white, which is closer to Tan. Now that I think about it, most Asians are closer to Tan than Yellow and most Hispanics are closer to Tan that Red. Guess we are just a world of mostly Tan.

  29. Since it is obvious that many of you
    are unaware of the meaning of white privilege, let me enlighten you.

    White Privilege
    Part I

    1. White privilege means no one
    questions why you got that really great job; it’s assumed you were just highly
    qualified.

    2. White privilege means you can wear
    and act however you’d like without being labeled a thug, low life, gangster,
    etc.

    3. Because of white privilege, you’ll
    never have to know what it feels like to see your teenage son’s death being
    mocked.

    4. White privilege means you can be
    articulate and well spoken without people being “surprised.”

    5. White privilege allows you to speak
    on any particular subject without being the sole representative for your entire
    race.

    6. White privilege means not having to
    worry about your hair being the reason you didn’t get a job.

  30. If you need more information of what is means to have white privilege here
    some more information.

    White Privilege Part II

    7. White privilege means you don’t have to worry about being monitored in a store just because the hue of your skin is a bit darker than most.

    8. Having white privilege means people will never label you a terrorist.

    9. White privilege means not being affected by negative stereotypes that have been perpetuated and ingrained so much into American society that people believe them to be fact.

    10. White privilege means not having to worry about being stopped and frisked.

    11. If you benefit from white privilege, you’ll never be told to “get over slavery.”

    12. White privilege means that you’re just your own person.

    Benefitting from white privilege means you can walk the Earth unaware of
    your color.

    It is necessary to educate children about white privilege, so that the
    entitlement attitude of racist and bigot do not continue.

  31. Reading to all the comment on this article. You would think that the only people that work hard is white people. However, this country’s forefather literally built this nation on the back of black people. Black people worked twice as hard as whites and paid half as much. This is fact. This is the white privilege. The inequality was done with the support and blessing of the local, state and federal government.

  32. Tom Buyea -- Fla.News service

    I guess that it is a fact that under Afirmative Action now for the last “48 ! Years”: when White men apply for a job especially civil service jobs that are the only decent jobs in some areas and make a 97% on the pre-employment test and then are Not even called in for an interview and when they call in and ask why ?
    They are told Oh we did not need any White American males we had to go to lower scores and get people in Minority categories, I guess when that happens over and over and over now for 48 years, That That is NOT feeling racial discrimination ? Correct ?

  33. Our educational system is no longer educational. It is a brainwashing system.

  34. White privilege is getting up at 5:30 and going to work to pay my mortgage, put food on the table for my kids , paying my property taxs. paying my income taxs so some as- ho-e can sleep till noon and pay with an E B T card and march all night.

  35. “White Priviledg”…my a$$ ! I’m 64, white, and still working my butt off just to accommodate this POS administration!
