Whoever wrote this has probably never left the US, or maybe not even their hometown. Been a minority my entire life, and his generalizing is kind of racist frankly.

@Draculya, I believe the point there is that we all assume any black person in higher education is only their to fill a seat > didn`t earn their degree. I had a black professor go on and on and on about this to my class. Right after, she listed all the extra help that aboriginals get (private and free tutoring, free printing, heaps more scholarships), which apparently serve to show we are on EQUAL footing.

That class made me more racist.

White Priviledge means when wealth and poverty is taken into account ethnic minorities are now outperforming whiteys, but keep up the programs in schools which help only minorities and not just poor people because white guys got it made! [

White privilege comes from a wealth, majority of white people are wealthy in contrast. As more minorities get wealthy perceptions education etc will improve. Help the poor don`t focus on race

Exactly, Grendel. I do the exact same thing when pulled over and have almost always been just given a warning and a "have a nice day".

"Blacks have the same privilege to not go to jail, this is about life choices, not race. "

I`d like to see the stats about how many white criminals get no prison time for the same offenses. It might be illustrative. If as many white people were thrown in jail for money-related crimes as black people are for simple drug possession, it might be more even.

"You don`t know what battles I am fighting."

What battles are you fighting just because you are a white male?

As a middle-aged white guy, I found this article to be incredibly offensive. I grew up in heart of the city of Milwaukee where, as a white person, I was in the vast minority. So spare me your ranting. You don`t know what battles I am fighting.

auburnjunky-"I do this anyway."

Things I do whenever I`m pulled over:
Pull over a good distance to get the cop out of traffice.
Turn off engine.
Roll down window.
Demonstrate empty hands.
Be respectful (`Sir`, etc).
Hand over concealed carry permit along with license and registration.
If I dissagree with the reason for being pulled over, I tell him in a respectful manner. If no agreement can be reached, sign the ticket and tell him I`ll take it up at the assigned court time.

Everyone leaves happy, no one gets tased/peppered/shot.

And I`ve gotten out of a few tickets that I actually deserved because I didn`t cop and attitude.

Well, after reading through a few of his articles...I see where this guy is coming from. Just read the article about how an awesome angel of fabulous awesomeness he is in his first job after graduating, how everybody loves him except this one person.

This whiny attention whore is seriously full of it.

This is mostly true of racism- but racism does not just include black people. It covers other races and also types- I have many bikers friends who get judges by appearance, women get treated differently. If we could just stop judging people by appearance. I know we ALL do and that it is no doubt inate- but being mindful would help...

"he taught his sons that when they get pulled over while driving to roll the windows down, and put their hands outside the window on the side of the car."

I do this anyway. It puts the cop at ease and if he sees the effort, he will be more likely to let you slide.

White privileges don`t exist, but racial stereotyping does. All the same, It`s not white peoples fault that some of those stereotypes are painfully accurate from time to time.

"Also, it means that you got into that prestigious university based on merit, not because a certain quota had to be filled."

I heard that the top US universities have a cap on Chinese students so that dumb white students can still make the grade. White is the new black.

I stopped reading at the WWI poster. The crazed horny apeman was meant to represent German Soldiers, not black people.

["DESTROY THIS MAD BRUTE - Enlist U.S. Army" is the caption of this World War I propaganda poster for enlistment in the US Army. A dribbling, mustachioed ape wielding a club bearing the German word "kultur" and wearing a pickelhaube helmet with the word "militarism" is walking onto the shore of America while holding a half-naked woman in his grasp (possibly meant to depict Liberty). This is a US version of an earlier British poster with the same image. Dated ca 1917.]

@ Runemag - the point is that 2/3 of black Americans are NOT criminals, but people treat them as if they are, because the other 1/3 of them are criminals.

Dumbest list EVER starting with #1 "You won`t be a victim of law enforcement"
I just submitted a video about a white guy beaten nearly to death by a cop because he wouldn`t sign a minor traffic ticket.

#5 "According to this report , one-third of black men will go to prison at least once in their lifetime." Blacks have the same privilege to not go to jail, this is about life choices, not race.


#7 I do not think Neil Tyson deGrasse is representative of his race when he speaks with authority on science and other intellectual matters.

#8 True, no one thinks whites get into college on a quota... Because the is no quota for whites. That would be racist!

11 Whites are never labeled terrorists.. Are you kidding? Have you ever heard of Ireland?

12 - no white stereotypes to affect us... Oh really?

If non-white people wanted me to view them in the same light as I view Justin Bieber for wearing the same style clothes he does... Then wouldnt that a step in the wrong direction?

"5. Because of white privilege, you’ll never know what it’s like to have the following statistic looming over your head.

According to this report , one-third of black men will go to prison at least once in their lifetime."

Soooooooo...


It`s "White privilege" to NOT commit crime? This "statistic" is only "looming over your head if you`re a drating criminal, dippoo. This is exactly the kind of mentality that MAKES you that statistic.

BINGO! Ever wonder why you don`t see anywhere near as many instances of Asian or Latinos complaining and/or experiencing racism? This is exactly why.

My god, put away the shovels and get a freaking bulldozer for that load of bullsheet. Single most stupid piece of total and utter bullsheet that I had the misfortune of wasting my precious moments of life upon. The author deserves a slap on the head. With a shovel. Full of this bullsheet. That has been lit on fire prior to the smack to said head.

Repeatedly.

Michael Blackmon(the guy who wrote this gem), what you`ve just posted is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever read. At no point in your rambling, incoherent posting were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having read it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

I`ve told my son that he is lucky on two counts. First, he`s white, and second, he`s male. He`s got it made in our society.

I heard LeVar Burton, you know, of Roots, Star Trek and Reading Rainbow fame, say that he taught his sons that when they get pulled over while driving to roll the windows down, and put their hands outside the window on the side of the car.

That was one example of how bad they have it in our society. I would never think that a police officer would be afraid of me when he or she pulled me over. But even someone like LeVar Burton lives with it on a daily basis.

Anyone who lives in the US and doesn`t think that white people are blessed is fooling themselves.

either this was written by a non-white that is jealous or a white person made a list to remind himself why he should be happy and it accidentally got posted.

#1 WRONG! NEXT!
#2 WRONG! NEXT!
#3 WRONG! NEXT!

I`m detecting a pattern here...

And Zimmerman is NOT WHITE! Any more than Barack Obama is white, FFS! Or Tiger Woods...

VV Well said @WhoDat! Hippies, Punks and other "white subcultures" got their fair share of discrimination and harassment... still do!

This was 17 lame-arsed examples of "political correctness" run amok...

1) I have long hair, a beard and I`m covered in tattoos, I get harassed by cops all the time.

4) Basically same as #1, people are surprised how "well spoken" I am based on my appearance.

5) If more black men commit crimes then statistically more will be in prison, that`s not racist it`s just math.

6) See #1 & #2

9) See #1 & #2

10) See #1 & #2

14) See #1

This is one of dumbest buzzfeed lists I`ve seen in a long time, and there`s a lot of really dumb sh*t on buzzfeed.
