The constant prog lecturing of our so-called white privilege is a gigantic smokescreen designed to divert attention away from the fact that not only do whites not have privilege but the opposite is true; blacks have privilege. In Australia this has been the case for some time. Government forms ask you to tick a box if you “identify” as aboriginal or a Torres Strait Islander. A tick of the box ushers in all kinds of advantages, from being pushed to the front of the queue, to obtaining jobs and special interest free loans and grants. All based on the supposed color of the respondents’ skin.
That’s black privilege for you.
If whites had so much privilege, why is it that mixed race Australians enthusiastically identify with their aboriginal heritage while conveniently discarding their Anglo-Saxon blood? If being white were in fact such a privilege then the logical recourse for those of mixed race would be to seek the inherent advantage of claiming their whiteness for the world to see.
Instead they do the opposite. I have written about a few of these individuals before. People like Rene Woods.
He might have some aboriginal in him, but he also has a lot of whitey.
Or how about the poor aggrieved Melissa Dinnison?
Or the “brave” aboriginal gravy train recipient Dwayne Simpson?
All of them had three choices available to them: to identify with their aboriginal blood; to identify with their white blood; or to do like the majority of us and not identify with any blood at all. To seek advantage based on your skin color seems the height of racism to me.
And now we have another one for the ages. Step forward the Greens’ candidate for the seat of Northcote in a looming Victorian state by-election, Lidia Thorpe. She is being heavily pushed by the Greens as a “great opportunity” for the citizens of that electorate. Is it because she has brilliant policy to offer them? Tax breaks perhaps? Does she want to roll back the regulatory state and its stranglehold on small business?
Nah. It’s because she’s an aboriginal woman. Really.
Correct that. A mixed race aboriginal woman who identifies only with her aboriginal heritage because such an act confers absolutely no advantage upon her at all.[/sarcasm.]
And yes, they really are pushing for people to vote for her because of her skin color and private parts.
I have a greater point to make though than this lead up. What really shits me about the reverse-privilege snow job is not just how blatant it is; nor how much whites themselves are buying into it; nor how you don’t correct a wrong with another wrong.
It’s the extra super-doopa racism with sprinkles on top that really shits me. When blacks really were discriminated against all those years ago, us whites at least had the common decency to fully admit the discrimination. You didn’t see aboriginals being shut out of most private and public institutions while the whites decried how poor and hard-done by they were. The whites were honest in their discrimination. They had the common decency to fully and openly admit their bias. A black was not punished for pointing out the bleeding obvious.
But now that the shoe is on the other foot, so to speak, the situation is fully reversed. Blacks are privileged over whites in today’s Anglo-Saxon societies but at the same time they and Quisling whites brow-beat and humiliate white people with the false accusations of being discriminatory and advantaged. It’s one thing to discriminate against a different race, but it’s another thing entirely to accuse that race of your own discriminatory actions while you’re engaged in discriminating against them. And it’s another thing entirely again to pass a racism law like 18c and then only prosecute one side of society. Has a single case been brought before the AHRC of a white person being discriminated against by a black?
Of course not. Because in this brave new world, black people cannot be racist because of the color of their skin. Sound legit?
Imagine if while black Americans were brought and sold as slaves they were also lectured about their privilege.
Imagine if I myself stood for the seat of Northcote under the campaign strategy of merely having white skin. And that I then claimed that this was a great opportunity for voters. I’d sure get a lot of publicity as I was hauled before the AHRC.
Today whites themselves eagerly partake in this reverse double discrimination snow job in a demeaning and traitorous attempt at virtue signaling, done entirely to give them some advantage in the present ludicrous victim-hood stakes. And if you can claim just a fraction of aboriginal blood and square it with the local tribe that you’re a real black fella, (nudge nudge, wink wink), then the whole disgusting edifice is laid open for you, paid for in whole by the same people that are openly discriminated against whilst the exact opposite is pushed as hard propaganda.
In the discriminatory stakes, blacks are worse than whites. They are dishonest and duplicitous racists, as opposed to just being racist.
