What we as Africans don't realise is that #WhitePrivilege will always be there. White people had a head start. No African country in the world can provoke the #WhitePrivilege and be left to prosper.
Gadaffi tried he got killed.
Mandela tried he got bribed.
Robert Mugabe tried his country got starved.

To be honest. The only way to make them suffer is for Africans to unite.

White farmers like myself cried about white genocide in South Africa. Trump who's not even South African stood up for us.
The only way is that Africans buy from black owned businesses only!!

If they get no capital from Africans then they will slowly lose money and money is power.

So guys stop getting excited for jobs you get from white people I don't care how much they pay you. Start your own!

The lion's share of demonisation of Whites is the charge that Whites were inveterate slavers who lounged on settees sipping tea whilst slaves from Africa fanned them

#WhitePrivilege

Never mind that that Whites ended slavery, paying with their money & their lives

[thread]
Never mind Europeans themselves were slaves for centuries longer & in conditions that make "Roots" look like summer camp

A captured European slave was chained to an oar in a galley~never again setting foot on dry land or in a slave pit in 40lb irons~never removed

I.5 mil Whites
The White slaves of the Ottomans, totaling 1.5 mil European children, women & men over the centuries had various grim fates:

One was the slave pit. There Sub-Saharan African overseers were expert in "tossing" the skin and bones slaves into the air to break bones or cause death.

"If the law didn't say I couldn't kill the nig*ers they'd be all dead"

This racist lady told a Black woman that she would kill all black people if it wasn't illegal in a CVS in California

WHO IS SHE?! SHE NEEDS TO BE IN PRISON FOR LIFE!
For those using mental illness to justify this

Mental illness isn't the cause of Racism. Mental illness isn't the cause of Hate. Racism is learned. Hate is learned. It is not inherited. It is not genetic!

(If you don't know a muslim or have a friend that is, u do now. follow)
If this was a Muslim woman in a hijab making threats to kill people in broad daylight, we all know what would happen. It would be immediately be labeled a foreign terrorist threat and all muslims would face repercussions, all would be expected to condemn it....

The face of #WhitePrivilege. Oops it’s #HunterBiden the son of Joe Biden.
Not one Democrat has thought to call Joe Biden out for raising a #WhitePrivilege man. I doubt the presidential candidates will go near this fact. The liberal media is even quiet.
Where is the shame?

#Racism and #WhiteFragility

Important question to raise.


Please read this entire thread, and watch the youtube clips. (Yes, I have watched all, and three times now). This is important if we are going to overcome our internal racism.
Animus is NOT a required component in racism.
#Racism is by-product of #institutionalpower.

#WhiteFragility preserves 'order' whether or not intended.
Important to remember.
#WhitePrivilege, #InstitutionalRacism manifests sometimes in the form of blaming the blacks. It becomes 'code word bonding' and wittingly or unwittingly goes to preserve the status quo. Knowingly or otherwise, it is #WhiteFragility.

Is #WhitePrivilege really a thing?

No.

Halle Berry crashed into Hetal Raythatha on February 23, 200o. Berry fled the scene, and the cops didn't even go after her. Therefore it was impossible to prove whether or not she was driving drunk or high.

Berry got probation.

I don't believe this for a second. I believe handlers in conjunction with his attys did this. Then attys cry "Foul!" "Let us see the videos 'if they exist,' " (knowing none will turn up). Attys get 250mm apiece + ongoing 'reasonable expenses,' try to get case dismissed cause...
2) #Epstein has been 187'd so they automatically assume none of his myriad of victim's have to get pd restitution - that should stop any others from coming forward and more big names from having to pay/go to jail.

Earlier today @PattyArquette responded to a woman who claimed that she had never met a white supremacist despite having lived in the Deep South for 20 years...Ms. Arquette correctly pointed out that white supremacists live everywhere...
It goes to show you just how completely white Americans have scapegoated white Southerners for racism. This attitude also proves that too many people in this country are unable to recognize the more subtle forms white supremacy often takes...
I have time and I'm feeling generous so I'll list some more subtle manifestations of this ideology. Please feel free to add...

This is your official #DemDebate2 night thread. I am just getting settled here, drinking water only because my liver is still recovering from last night, and I turn on CNN and this dude is preaching to the audience about RAAAAACCCISM! I think he's the head of the DNC. #Hectic
I can already tell I'm going to have to risk gastro upset and head for the liquor cabinet. This is going to be a disaster. #PJMDrunkBlog #DemDebate2
@CNN thinks #KristenG thinks she's being beat up on because she called for #Franken to resign. I think she's a loser because she's connected up to her ears with #NXVIM #DemDebate2 #ChildTrafficking #PJMDrunkBlog

1/ #Racism- and #Sexism-by-Proxy … a thread:

A while back, my usually-progressive son said it was wrong to give children 'black' names like LaShawn or LaTonya.

"There's so much racism," he said. "Their resumes and other applications will be rejected because of their names."
2/ I said this was a classic example of racism-by-proxy: "I'M not racist, but OTHER PEOPLE are … and we should all cater to them."

"But I'm just being realistic!" he countered. "Racists won't change, so black parents should give their kids race-neutral names."
3/ I said racists won't change if we never challenge their racism.

"If we accept racism as an immutable fact and act as if we must all adapt our lives to fit their biases," I said, "we help perpetuate racism. We practice racism-by-proxy."

1/ About white privilege, checking one's privilege and what to do with it

Brazil is a predominantly brown country, considered to rank the highest or very high in the miscigenation rate
2/ Genetically, it still has European predominance (pretty mixed and browned):

If I were to become pregnant, my life would be at risk, and I would choose an #abortion. I lost two years of my life after the birth of my second son because the hormones it takes to create human life make me lose my mind.1/14

#ExForcedBirth #WomensRightsAreHumanRights #PPD
I became crippled with fear, and my thoughts were dark. The thoughts told me I needed to die. They told me this all day long. It took every bit of strength I had to fight them. I could barely leave my house. For. Two. Years. 2/14
I had 2 sons, ages 4 yrs. and newborn. I fought hard to stay alive for them. The energy it took to fight my own brain in order to stay alive took so much out of me; I didn't have much left over to give to them. I kept them alive. It was the best I could do. They deserved more.3/

Are tax payers aware of the political propaganda being pushed on students at @OregonState? This thread provides a small sample of what you’ll find on campus. Are you at another institution & encounter similar things? Email or DM me.
.@OregonState’s diversity office spends resources on a series of “social justice retreats” for students & faculty. Earlier this year, there was one that seeks to remake “white identity” centered around how to become an activist against white privilege. dce.oregonstate.edu/retreat
In Tabeau Hall at @OregonState, there is a big display about the “Myth of Reverse Racism” that explains white privilege, oppression, etc. It says reverse racism can “perhaps” only happen if whites were enslaved & lynched today in the US and West.

People in modern Progressive America are now so woke, they are self-segregating themselves.

"I'm so woke I just can't ever possibly even date someone from a different race."

I'm having so much fun watching this.
Who knew that interracial dating/marriages were really just another insidious form of #WhitePrivilege? 🤷‍♂️
Soon Progressive white people will only be able to eat white food, dress white, marry and date white, listen to white music and vote for white politicians.

Because hey, white guilt will compel them to.

Angelic, Backpacker!
Disgusting choice of photo of a white, blond child instead of a mass murdering terrorist.

Whitewashing white supremacy brought us here.
Looks like many more muslims, jews & black folks have to die before hate spewing islamophobes are taken off the pedastal.
For those in denial of #WhitePrivilege...
Either call them all "gunmen" or all "terrorists" @nytimes

Of course the UK press has been paving the way for hate, radicalization and MURDER for years.

Attackers who happen to be Muslim have caused a fraction of the mayhem in comparison with their (mostly Christian) #WhiteSupremacists

Is there really a “fuller picture” or are y’all just twisting yourselves into knots trying to sugarcoat blatant racism and White rage per usual?
Here’s a novel suggestion: if you don’t want your life ruined by public vilification because you behaved like a fucking racist in public, DON’T behave like a fucking racist in public.
Y’all elected this racist farce, it’s way too fucking late in the game for you to be too ashamed of yourselves to face the inevitable consequences.

This is what #WhitePrivilege looks like. Also, what issues are more important than issues of equity and justice?
☝🏽 Ts, next time you find yourself tempted to hate on social media & share this opinion w/Ss, know that for many Ss, social media can actually be a place where marginalized groups can find each other & be heard—that it’s perhaps even a safe space, safer than some of our clsrms.
And if you don’t already, follow @deray @MsPackyetti @samswey about the relationship btwn social media and activism, and for everything else they share. :)

I always bring this up when *certain* ppl wanna ask why Black American communities won't pull themselves up from their bootstraps. REPEATEDLY successful Black communities were purposefully destroyed by direct violence or intentional policy. Ppl don't know history.
I REALLY do mean REPEATEDLY

Settlers act like its oppression when you ask them not to use a few words because they are slurs. They act oppressed when you tell them not to dress as your culture when they have created endless media with majority White characters to be. #WhitePrivilege
This attorney was a speaker at my law school & his speech was The Left’s War on Free Speech. He talked about milo yiannopoulos getting punched & The Bell Curve author getting banned. Meanwhile, the right is passing laws to ban ethnic studies & to criminalize protesting.
That attorney was talking about individuals, but ignoring systemic encroachment on freedom of speech directed at BIPOC. I called him out of it. He didn’t hear about the law they tried to pass in North Dakota saying you get off for “accidentally” running over protestors.

@12bobbyboucher @mandel17 @emrazz Uhhhh...
Wait what?
White dudes, calm DOWN.

"Everyone" doesn't "hate you."

But societally, you're experiencing something new that many other people are used to but you haven't had to deal with.

Let me explain.
">" Means "to be continued"

@12bobbyboucher @mandel17 @emrazz When I, as a Black man, read about a reprehensible crime being committed, at my core, all my brain starts repeating is

"PleasedontbeBlack
PleasedontbeBlack
PleasedontbeBlack
PleasedontbeBlack..."

@12bobbyboucher @mandel17 @emrazz It's a visceral, illogical fear that strikes me because I know if the perp IS, the media (esp @foxnews, etc), #maga, and even some "good" folks will (or may) ingest that news and think it's the group (Inc me) and not just a person.

THIS IS RAPIST #JACOBANDERSON.

20 y/o Anderson drugged, choked & violently raped a fellow student at Baylor University. A grand jury indicted him on 4 counts of sexual assault. McLennan County DA dropped the charges in exchange for a plea to 1 count of unlawful restraint. /1
He will receive only three years unajudicated probation, fined $400, and will not have to register as a sex offender.

Judge Ralph Strother could still reject the plea. If he does, Anderson could withdraw his no-contest plea and a trial would likely be scheduled. /2
The survivor did everything one is supposed to do. She reported the crime. She underwent a hospital exam. She was prepared to go to trial. But her rapist could walk free. /3
