It is easy for white people to say, “We got it made over here”, while detailing some perceived horrific condition in some other country. When you are sitting atop the pile, that is in and of itself, and the personification of what people are in the streets about, the very manifestation of ‘white privilege”.
Sure, some people of all races are doing okay, but for a lot of people, things are not so rosy. The problem is that so many white people do not know or understand their own history.
They have no clue that the planters divided the black enslaved and the white enslaved bonds-people along racial lines, in order to maintain control over them all.
It was critical that they find a way to do so because of what was a burgeoning underclass that they were afraid they would not be able to control.
So they convinced the white criminals thrown out of Europe that they were superior based on the similarity of their skin color with that of the planters and wealthy estate holders.
They went further, by making them overseers on the plantations and slave catchers after they had worked off their period of bonded servitude.
Out of the slave ‑catching in the Southern States came [the thing we now call policing].
White [refuse]being dumped on America from Europe did not end until after the civil war ended.
Still today, the one percent have convinced poor whites that they are somehow superior to other races in America. While all of us fight over the crumbs from their tables.
The middle class is being eviscerated, and more than forty percent of American families cannot find an extra $500 cash in case of an emergency.
All fo this, while we are at each other’s throats and they pile up trillions in their savings accounts.
Ninety-seven percent of the poorest counties in the nation are in Republican-run states.
These are counties that are heavily populated by poor whites, who, despite white privileges, are unable to pull themselves up by their bootstraps.
What they do well, is claim victimhood, and are heavily invested in hatred.
Stupid is as stupid does. As long as they have you fooled that your pale skin is somehow something which places you above other races in America they will continue to rape all of us, and all you have is your white fantasy of superiority.
