Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand: I've 'experienced
enormous amounts of white privilege'

Original Article

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand teared up in front of a crowd of progressives after admitting that she benefitted in her life from “enormous amounts of white privilege.” During the Netroots Nation conference in Philadelphia over the weekend, the New York senator told a story about a poor, white mother she recently met in Youngstown, Ohio, who couldn’t understand the concept of “white privilege.” “This conversation about white privilege is so important because what she doesn’t see is that as her son grows older, as my sons grow older, there’s going to be moments in his life that his whiteness protects

Comments:

Per Gillebrand's feeble and teary premise, she should resign from her stolen position as a US senator and halt her ridiculous quest for the presidency. Hand over her wealth to Persons of Color too, you hypocrite.

You know something, Sen. Gillibrand, you don't get to choose where you come from. You only are responsible for where you go with it. So why feel guilty about something, the circumstances of your birth, that's not your doing. I sure as heck don't.

Really? Her son's "whiteness" will prevent him from being discriminated against when applying for a job? Affirmative Action has guaranteed that he is the least desirable hire. Minorities must be hired. Women must be hired. LGBTQXYZ must be hired. HB1 visa holders must be hired. Muslims must be hired. Hispanics must be hired. Only after all the boxes above are checked will your son even be considered for a job. Or admission to any of today's colleges and universities. The only people more discriminated against than white males are Asians.

Somehow “Whiteness” keeps some White boys from doing drugs and committing violent crimes as much as other boys, and they should feel guilty about that (as opposed to feeling guilty about doing drugs and violent crimes). Should Black Americans feel guilty about their Blackness making them taller and taking a disproportionate number of positions in the MBA? How does all this work?

Either Gillebrand is pandering to black voters or she is monumentally stupid. Nowhere in the article does she acknowledge the effects of behaviors. Many black communities are rife with gang violence, drug use and trafficking, fatherless households, teenage and out-of-wedlock mothers,lack of marketable skills needed by employers, etc. Instead of addressing these significant issues, blacks frequently criticize other blacks for "acting white." Blacks can and should address problems in their own communities and perhaps they will overcome them and earn the American privilege to which they are entitled.

White priviledge is a term used to make excuses for other's bad life decisions. I don't believe in white privelidge but I do believe in black dysfunction. Why are there so many unsolved murders in the black communities acoss the nation? Why is the black school dropout rate so high? Why is single parenthood so high in black communities? In spite of years of racist, anti-white affirmative action laws, the problems of the blacks can all be laid at the feet of failed Democratic policies. No person of color should vote Democrat-or any other person for that matter.

White privilege is an argument to make white people shut up. Democrats don't take that argument to West Virginia, or Central PA, anywhere in the South, or outside of most states that border on water. Everyone struggles in life. "White Privilege" is identity politics writ large and just another way to divide us.
