A discussion of race, politics, media and the like… What I see is what you get.

Racial Shift Turns White Man’s Burden Into A Great White Whine


The idea that whites are being discriminated against is absurd on its face but the fact that it is a meme that is being perpetuated in society, despite any data to prove it is an actual reality, proves just how pervasive and deeply rooted white supremacy is in our society. White privilege is as real as the sun rising in the east. Its a fact of life that is seemingly invisible to those that benefit from it on a daily basis…

Have you oppressed a white person lately?

Did you gerrymander their district so they’d have less representation? Deny them entry at your hospitals or schools or proper legal services for not having the right documentation? Did you stop them while they were riding a bike to their new gentrified apartment in Spanish Harlem and ask them what they were doing there and whose bike they stole?

No? Well, lately that’s how some whites are feeling. Even if as America is seemingly becoming more diverse and equitable (which is a good thing), the idea is that if minorities are making gains, it means something is being taken away from white people. Claiming “reverse discrimination” in the Age of Obama is the new, sexy way to “White Whine.”

From CNN.com:

“We went from being a privileged group to all of a sudden becoming whites, the new victims,” says Charles Gallagher, a sociologist at La Salle University in Pennsylvania who researches white racial attitudes and was baffled to find that whites see themselves as a minority.

“You have this perception out there that whites are no longer in control or the majority. Whites are the new minority group.” – PostRacialist

Huh!?
