I’ve never spent a night in jail...because I obey the law.
This concept of priviledge, applied only to white people, in a world that is 90% dark people, is the perfect example of the “big lie”.
My brothers story was somewhat like this one, he and a co-workers flew home late, too many drinks, the guy gets pulled over and starts mouthing off to the police, my brother says, um my car is just over there can I go home they said sure.
The guy shows up at work 3 days later with a broken arm asking my brother if he knows how it happened.
My point is I think we may not have all of the story on this one.
Why is there not affirmative action in the NBA so that it better reflects the ethnic makeup of America?
Funny, not a single word in the entire story about WHY he was arrested, WHAT he was arrested for, HOW the police managed to break his lead, WHAT he was doing to cause the police to use such force. Not one word.
Just page after page of white guilt. Sounds like this guy has a serious case of Stockholm Syndrome.
Does white privilege include being loathes by non-whites?
Does it include being denied admission into your college of choice even though your test scores are higher than those minorities accepted with lower academic credentials.
Does white privilege include being driven from your neighborhood because government funded housing for minorities has turned into a crime-ridden nightmare?
Does white privilege include having your pocket picked by the government for the advancement of minorities?
Does white privilege include being bussed to school miles from your home into dangerous neighborhoods and forced to go to school with a dumbed down curriculum?
Does white privilege include being blamed to the end of your days for atrocities you had no hand in that occurred generations ago?
Oh, and if the police broke my teammates leg, I have to wonder first whether he was a punk to the police like I see on LivePD and COPS during every episode. Too many blacks have a bias at the outset dealing with police and they end up actively provoking coos, resisting arrest and sometimes attacking cops.
There are dirty cops but the vast majority dont want any trouble and if they can, will give you a pass if youre respectful and sincere. But the sad fact is that too many blacks have no respect for the law.
White privilege is actually much more subtle and clever.
For example, you may receive an email at work indicating that in the event of an emergency you may be asked to “stay in place”.
They don’t that email to white people.
I have worked without break since I was 16. Where do I apply to get some of my white privilege?
What a shame. Must have been blackmailed.
That sounds like a legit question to me. There are plenty of examples of white players facing similar questions.
As white people, are we guilty of the sins of our forefathers? No, I dont think so.
But are we responsible for them? Yes, I believe we are.
Such BS. So we can't hold the parents responsible when kids are roaming the streets and breaking into houses or dealing drugs or shooting up peoples' houses, but I'm responsible for the actions of my great-great-great-grandfather in 1820? Never mind the fact that he was in Norway at the time...
His privilege is because he’s rich, not because he’s white.
I’m always interested in what moneyed white ball dribblers think. Thank God he’s going to hold all white people accountable for the horrible treatment of moneyed black ball dribblers.
