A white gay colleague recently shared his concerns about speaking out and not getting canceled. I appreciated his courage and honesty. This is a difficult time. Between COVID, Black Lives Matter, the Jan. 6th insurrection, and climate change, the paradigm is shifting, and we are still working out what that means. There are no clear rules and that can be scary.
What some white folks don’t understand is that the world was built to accommodate them and their culture. Making a world that works for people of color and people who are different means taking some of that away. For example, “What is fair?” usually is code for “What is fair to white people?” When something is fair to people of color but not white people, then it’s usually deemed unfair. Or the transverse, when something is fair to white people but not people of color, then it is usually deemed fair.

This is the deranged mentality we are up against. That is my purpose in posting it.
Wow, that domain name is truth in advertising. I’m sure they are trying to be ironic, but it is what it is.
If Obama tells Uganda to drop their punishment of homosexuality, isn't that colonialism?
“the world was built to accommodate them and their culture.”.
The world rewards hard work, foresight, prudence, honesty, and enlightened self-interest.
The only color that has ever mattered is green (at least here in the US). I know of not a single person who, all things such as age and health being the same, wouldn’t rather be a rich black than a poor white.
I can understand this bilge perfectly well; it is the paradigm of those who think the world owes them everything (or anything) without their working for it.
And the left will tell us that all of those are white privileged values.
This is merely an excuse for the left to excuse its growing racism, bigotry, discrimination, and segregation. It’s how they can still pretend to be the good guys to themselves even as they embody everything they claim to be fighting.
From “About Us”: POZ is an award-winning print and online brand for people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.
I’d rather be me than Oprah and she’s the richest woman in the world.
Actually, it is, like all "AIDS resources," a publication catering to filthy disease-ridden queers, with other professional grievance groups tagging along.
I tell ‘em that those values are just like plugging resistors and capacitors of the right ‘values’ into a circuit: you get the results you want.
I do think that more could be done to provide equality of OPPORTUNITY to people who are disadvantaged because of location or family circumstances; it’s hard for someone born in a ghetto or somewhere where education and initiative has never been taught or talked about to compete with a kid from a good middle class home (of any color) who is inculcated with thrift, integrity, and self-reliance as core values. But the results will never be equal and it’s pretty straightforward to argue that point.
Me too and I’m male.
Fair is a favorite word of COMMUNISTS; and it rarely means what the dictionary defines it to be.
And blacks yell at whites over ‘cultural appropriation’ where everything blacks have and do were appropriated from whites and other ethnicity’s starting out with those dreadlocks which ancient Egyptian ladies wore (1800BC images).
Same with most sub-suharan African countries. They've been shaping their countries "to accommodate them and their culture".
Same with every country that hasn't had centuries of shaping their country to accommodate God and His "culture". We're moving away from that and we'll be like the degenerate nations people are fleeing.
Most people face the very high risk of being indicted as “racists” for pointing out that every black and brown country is essentially third-world, violent, sub-par for health, and corrupt. But the truth is the truth regardless.
Countries without white privilege and black majorities must be doing great. Maybe these folks would rather live there?
No, it wasn't, but this country was. Every group has a right to their own country, their own culture, their own homeland where they can be safe and prosper. Except, it seems, whites.
Between COVID, Black Lives Matter, the Jan. 6th insurrection, and climate change, the paradigm is shifting, and we are still working out what that means.
I had to stop there.
The best definition I have seen of fair is….
“Fair isn’t everyone getting the same thing. Fair is everyone getting what they need in order to be successful!”
If you listen to most “woke” anthropologists, you have to believe that human civilization sprung from Africa. So whites sprung from dark Africans, are actually a version of black people. So, how does any of this attempt at balkanization make any sense?
