White Skin Privilege? Hardly. Whites Are Discriminated Against Systemically.

The anti-white bigoted notion of white skin privilege holds that all the diverse white Americans have a uniform advantage in all walks of life. It is a notion on the same level as “model minority” which holds that all Asian Americans have a uniform success in life. Both concepts are based on a supremacist goal of smothering the diversity within their respective communities.

It’s a concept closely linked with the idea that there is such a thing as “a typical white person,” signifying that all the diverse white American peoples are identical clones.

The two chief advocates of white skin privilege in the 21st century seem to be Jane Elliott who humiliates little children to promote her hatreds, and Noel Ignatiev who openly promotes an atmosphere supporting genocide against white Americans.

For proof of its absurdity and meanness, look at who is homeless on our city sidewalks. Or note how meanly the members of subordinated and diverse white American ethnic groups are treated in today’s society when social goods are being distributed. In fact, there are more diverse white Americans living below the poverty line than the total number of African Americans in the USA.

Maybe white skin privilege as a concept needs a closer look before being embedded in the academic and journalistic book of “truths” that need no evidence. Most classroom or training exercises used to demonstrate this “truth” are carefully selected social interactions designed to support the desired outcome. A genuinely broadbased look at American society shows a large diversity in the allocation of “privileges,” not a one-way pattern at all. There are just too many homeless and poor white American adults and children to allow the term white skin privilege much credence.

The killing of 13 diverse white American mine workers in West Virginia during the first week of 2006 offers a complete refutation to the Big Lie of white skin privilege.

A Deeper Look At The Concept

Most people do not understand how a majority demographic like the diverse white American peoples is unable to defend itself from slanders like white skin privilege. The usual question is, “Don’t whites have all the power?” Apparently not.

A good way to cut through this confusion is to demand, “Tell me three examples of any congressional or presidential action or statement to reduce hate speech or hate caricatures against the diverse white American peoples.”

When they fail, here are three rather obvious ways in which white American politicians fail to provide any support at all.

Hate crimes are aimed at white people, increasing penalties for crimes committed against non-whites by whites, Non-whites are a protected group and not subject to the extra penalties.

Hate Speech: US Senator Byrd & White N’s

US Senator Robert Byrd on Fox News (3/4/01) referred to a segment of diverse white Americans as “white n’s” and has refused to apologize to the diverse white American peoples, although he did apologize to African Americans for his slur on white Americans. None of the white Americans in Congress or the Executive Branch has risen to denounce Byrd’s hate speech. [If you have a strong stomach, you may read details about the infamous Byrd slur against some white Americans here.]

Hate Speech: US Senator Barack Obama’s Hate Speech Unrebutted

Not one white American in Congress or the Executive Branch has risen to denounce former US Senator Barak Obama’s use of hate speech including “acting white,” “white resentment,”and “typical white person.” Imagine if any white US Senator used “acting black,” or “Asian resentment,” or “typical Mexican person.”

In 2004, he spoke out against the use of “acting white” when applied to young African American students, but refused to criticize it as a loathsome term principally used to demean white American students.

In 2008, he made casual reference to his perception that a single emotion was held by the diverse white American peoples (“white resentment”) and to his supremacist belief that the the diverse white American peoples are identical clones of each other, including his own grandmother (“typical white person”).

So far, not one white American in Congress or the Executive Branch has criticized his overt smears.

Hate Speech: White Americans Falsely Assigned Hate Crimes By Statistics

The US government promotes a thoroughly dishonest image of white Americans as hate criminals by manipulating hate crime statistics. And no white American official lifts a hand to correct official hate speech around its corrupted hate crime statistics, not to mention the hate caricature that is generated. The dishonest statistical collection and reporting program results in outcomes like these two examples.

If a Mexican American attacks a Jewish American with hate, the victim is counted in the Jewish victim category, because Jews are recognized as a victim group. However, Latinos are not recognized as a group whose members commit hate crimes, so about 90% of their hate crimes are counted in the white American perpetrator category, thus pumping up the white American perpetrator category numbers.

But if a Jewish American attacks a Mexican American with hate, the victim is counted in the Latino victim category, because Latinos are recognized as a victim group. However, Jewish Americans are not recognized as a group whose members commit hate crimes, so their hate crimes are counted in the white American perpetrator category, thus pumping up the white American perpetrator category numbers.

Now that Arab Americans and other Southwest Asian Americans are becoming more numerous, it is important to note that the same principle applies — when they commit a hate crime, they are white Americans for statistical purposes, but when they are a victim, they are counted in an ethnicity or religious category.

What a statistical system when the outcome is a massively dishonest portrayal of the conduct of the diverse white American peoples.

Clearly the diverse white Americans aren’t supported by white American officials in Congress or the Executive Branch when it comes to hate speech and hate caricatures.
