On ocassion as of late this issue has been explored here. What exactly is "white privilege"? The concept was somewhat explained in a video found from the BBC last year - posted at "The Moleskine". One aspect of this is that a Black man who doesn't speed, run red lights or anything like that is more likely to get stopped than a white man who does the same thing.
To be fair I have a concept of "white privilege" and the privilege could be inherent advantages based upon ethnicity or skin color. Perhaps a leg up on a job, an advantage as far as credit, or even an advantage as far as the justice system. At least that's my concept of white privilege.
Unfortunately what does Dice discuss in his latest video? Well to put my own spin on it, the idea of white privilege has caused some elements here in the nation to engage in some irrational acts. Noted in this video there had be an article from The Root where it is argued whites who are in interracial relationships and biracial children still aren't absolved of their racism. No matter what white people are going to be racist, and yes this does remind me of something - i.e. if you're a man you're always misogynist &
Anyway back to The Root:
We know that the number of black men who date white women far exceeds the number of black women who date white men. Nor are black women exalted by society the way white women are. In the few interracial relationships that I’ve seen with black women and white men, the black women are usually still remarkably black as fuck, and they still defend all black people (with a few exceptions).Also we learned that at the US Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado some racist graffitti was found in the dorms there. One problem after an investigation the racist grafitti was done by a Black student there. So in performing this hoax, this individual merely screws up an opportunity at a service academy - which essentially provides tuition-free college education with a commitment to serve in the Air Force. I didn't intend to excerpt this, but just have to now:
And we can’t ignore the inherent sexual stereotypes that have marred black people for centuries. Black men and women have been seen as sexual beasts since we arrived in this country. Black men with their oversized penises, black women with their oversized breasts and asses, and both with their oversized sexual appetite became a sick fetish meant only for white pleasure.
When people say they can’t be racist because they have a black child, I laugh, as if the insertion of black penis into white vagina or white penis into black vagina is some magical act that wipes you clean of all your racism. As if there isn’t porn specifically dedicated to the subjugation of black women by white men. As if white demure housewives being beasted by a group of sex-crazed black men aren’t trending on YouPorn. As if slave owners and their sympathizers didn’t have children by black women while simultaneously writing laws that kept slavery legal and/or otherwise contributing to the subjugation of black people (Thomas Jefferson and Strom Thurmond, just to name a few).
“The individual admitted responsibility and this was validated by the investigation,” academy spokesman Lt. Col. Allen Herritage said in a statement to the Associated Press, adding: “Racism has no place at the academy, in any shape or form.”What a shame! Manufactured controversy, just deflecting using some very incendiary accusations.
The cadet candidate accused of crafting the messages was not identified, but the Colorado Springs Gazette reported that the individual is no longer enrolled at the school. Sources also told the Gazette the cadet candidate “committed the act in a bizarre bid to get out of trouble he faced at the school for other misconduct,” the newspaper reported.
Also I shared the article Dice starts off with in this video also over at "The Moleskine". An op-ed asking whether or not Black children can be friends with white children. Life in 2017 and questions worth answering even in the era of President Donald Trump.
