    White Writer’s Privilege

    White Writer’s Privilege

    A follow up to last night’s post, Salon.com ghoulishly race baits #BostonMarathon bombing with “white privilege” rant.

    James Taranto observes,

    The Privilege of Not Belonging

    A theory of white racism against whites.

    * * *

    Thus today’s insight:

    To be white in America is to have the privilege of being able to define one’s political identity in terms of one’s own superiority, whether real or imagined, over other members of one’s own race.

    Daniel Greenfield-

    Progressives prefer a world “where terrorism really isn’t that serious, but a terrorist hunger strike is. It’s a world where terrorists are goofy men with bombs in their underwear or their shoes, where global warming is the biggest threat to the human race and we all need to think more about our white privilege.”

    “The media narrative is built on preserving that world. It is an innately reactionary narrative in which there is room for smiling women talking about how much fun abortion is, but no room for the bloody operating tables of a Dr. Gosnell. It is a place in which our biggest priorities have to be tackling all sorts of inequities, not dealing with the finer points of Islamic theology.”

    “September 11 dealt a blow to that world, but the wound has scabbed over and the old comfortable liberal verities have come back. Now the media has its fingers crossed hoping that another “white dude” will be led out and that he will have a motive dealing with abortion or race that fits comfortably into their worldview of good lefties and evil righties.

    What they fear is another Islamic terrorist, another promising twenty-something from Pakistan or the Middle East, with a middle class background and a graduate degree, reciting Koranic verses.

    They don’t understand him, but they fear him. Not for his ability to kill them, but his ability to destroy the world that they have built up. A world where left is right and right is wrong and diversity solves everything and the only thing we have to fear is being frightened of people who are different than us.

    They fear that the long utopian dream that they fell into after the memories of September 11 faded has come to an end with another blast and another shout of Allah Akbar. “

    Off topic perhaps, but…

    Pres. Freakout LIED throughout his hissy-fit following the Senate gun-grab vote.

    Up, down, sideways, and over the top.

    I read the first line on the page back where the post started…something about being able to discern your own political identity or somesuch. Then I got so cranky at the idea that we’re now being blamed because we have diversity in political thought, while most other races don’t (for the most part) that I could not continue. Oh, yeah — saw today that Salon has an article hoping the offenders would be white males. Probably the conclusion of THIS Salon rant, which started out so promising. Those people are….and I’m getting tired of tossing this word around; I don’t want it to become overused — but those people are evil.
