First World Privilege

Having read an article talking about white, hetero, male, cis {add whatever stupid  label you wish} privilege, I thought the privilege that ALL Americans share which is First World Privilege.  Yes, First World Privilege, the privilege shared by those of all faiths, creeds, color, socio-economic class, gender, orientation and so forth, to complain about their lives being “oppressed” (while not suffering the consequences of what a truly oppressed civilization and people endure, I mean just ask a North Korean or a citizen of Eritrea). An oppressed, truly oppressed, nation and people do not enjoy such privilege. Lets also tack on the access to the plethora of available high tech gadgets such as cellphones, computers, gaming consoles, flat screen TVs and such.  A poor nation does not have this privilege.  Most citizens in poor countries barely have running water let alone access to the internet.

So, next time someone wants to lecture others on their supposed privilege remember, remember to check your First World Privilege.

This goes Right and Left, none of you are oppressed….except in your minds.

Toure the Racist

Toure is absolutely one of the most racist folks on TV these days, but he receives a reprieve due to his skin color, which isn’t white, and still complains about the faux idea of ‘white privilege’.  If white privilege truly existed this man wouldn’t spew the divisive, venomous racist remarks he does.  Rubbing white peoples faces into what he perceives as ‘white privilege’ isn’t starting off a serious race discussion, but being racist, envious prick.  A calm dialog about race was actually brought by the most notorious racist organization the American Nazi Party and African-American Community Acitivists.  How is that possible?  Perhaps it’s due to the fact of these two opposing groups not coming out at each other with bared teeth.  I can’t stand the Nazi Party and believe the world would be better without them in it, but at least they are willing to have civil discussions over race issues.

I would say that Toure enjoys a hearty amount of privilege of his own since he will not be thrown off TV and will continue his mantra of hate and racial division.  To heal the racial divide is not to be a condescending jackass towards the other races, but rather extend an olive branch of forgiveness, hold hands together as we all walk the path to healing the division.
