Where are all the black elves at?
Anything other than pure socialism under a totalitarian state perpetuates systems of white, male privilege - according to the humorless and joyless Left.
To much math.
I am serious. That is why I have seen it called “White privilege”.
Does anyone here think there’s not a war on White people?
When I was a freshman at the University of Wisconsin in the spring of 1966, I had to receive career counseling, as a career development assist for me, while giving students experience in the action.
The student counseling me said, You are in electrical engineering...lets just go through the motions, as you really dont need counseling!
Next to me, another pair were going through the activity. The student was a cute girl. The counselor was heard to say, You have poor math and science skills. Your English and History grades are substandard. Your only obvious career path is Education.
I looked at my counselor...he looked at me...and we both rolled our eyes!
This dipshit professor is the result of years of fearless sifting and winnowing, to place the least capable in one of the most societally critical duties...Education!
They are orcs. Another proof of white privilege, you see.
Events and happenings on the Left tend to run in fads and phases. I am so tired of the white privilege I hope it dies soon. The way to help it along is to get government financing out of colleges. No loans. No grants. The cost of going to college would plummet. Also, the courses like “Underwater Gender Non-specific Transactional Basket Weaving 101” would vanish overnight, along with all the campus unrest as the former students would all have to get jobs at Starbucks.
I guess two young men, Philippino-American brothers, I’ve known since they were born (now in the 20s), are both lovers of “white male privilege”, as they have loved playing those games since they were very young.
Oh wait, as children they are not naturally prejudiced and did not learn that fictional characters had to look like them in order to identify with them nor not looking like them did they have to think they were “other”.
If anything, dungeons and dragons teaches anything BUT “white privilege” as the “winners” are masters of the skills of playing the game, and the game is not about any inherent “privilege”, it’s about your skill.
Poor Dungeons and Dragons. When I was a kid, anyone who played it was a Satanist. Now, they’re privileged white males.
He bemoans the fact that Dungeons & Dragons began as a white mans hobby.
Question: Do blacks generally engage in hobbies other than loitering? Here is just another disgruntled busybody who seeks to distroy all aspects of white culture because he feels his own culture is inferior.
When in the army, the D&D players were the snowflake kinds and there were a lot of blacks in fact
It’s the war on capitalism, still going on. We have just become the symbol of it because our work habits, individualism, and values are the ones that are most conducive toward success in this system. Merit-based systems reward people who act a certain way. Due to cultural norms, an awful lot of those people are white, Jewish, or Asian.
This is one of those @ssholes who tipped the board and threw the dice at the wall when his character got killed.
I better ask my grandchildren what this “ Dungeons and Dragons” thing is so i can enjoy some white privilege.
>Question: Do blacks generally engage in hobbies other than loitering?
Yes; most, in fact; but those don’t make news. Regular folks, rather than criminals, loudmouth ‘community activists,’ or ‘unsafe’ conservatives like Diamond and Silk, are ignored by MSM.
>Here is just another disgruntled busybody who seeks to distroy all aspects of white culture because he feels his own culture is inferior.
Absolutely. He’d also like you to think that ‘his own culture’ (idiot leftist racebaiters) *is* the culture of everyone who shares his skin tone; and that all America is divided irreparably and completely by color-based cultural divides.
None of this makes any sense. It is all based on the idea that because a white male is successful it is somehow taking away from those that are not white males.
In the real world it is a real possibility that a white male can succeed, and a black female can also succeed. Why is the success of the white male an issue? The way I was raised everyone was encouraged to succeed.
As to the idea of privilege; we are all raised differently for many reasons, parental beliefs, economic reality. One child may be born in a family with economic advantage, another may be born to super encouraging parents. We all have advantages and disadvantages in life.
Is a white male born in a poor family that does not value education really more privileged than a black female born in an upper middle class family that supports education and encourages success?
Roll a saving throw a@@hole!
My first thought is to start a campaign to get this asshat fired, but then he’d end up getting his $20,000 a month pension.
I guess I’ll just go back to my white privilege lifestyle of working my blue collar job with no pension.
