Lessons of the schoolyard.
I have written on this topic before, but it is useful to set down a brief but comprehensive summary of the problem. Therefore, here I make three arguments:
1. White Privilege, as defined by the Left as racially-specific advantages possessed by Whites, does not exist.
2. Even if White Privilege existed, it would be justified.
3. Attacks against Whites, re: White Privilege, are simply bullying against Whites because Whites, as a race, are a bunch of pathetic, mewling, cowardly weaklings.
1. The argument that White Privilege does not exist can be briefly subdivided into three parts.
A. A people being demographically dispossessed in their own nations – even in their ancestral homelands of Europe – are obviously not privileged. Mass immigration into White nations, against the wishes of the populace and imposed by a hostile elite, is not “privilege.” It is genocide. Declining White birthrates and increasing White suicide rates are not signs of “privilege” – they are signs of oppression and despair. The opioid crisis among White Americans is not “privilege” – it is hopelessness and despair. The fact that most politicians in White nations are racially White means nothing, as most of them are openly hardcore anti-White. The question should be – whose interests do those politicians represent?
B. A people discriminated against de jure by law (affirmative action, hate speech laws in Europe that criminalize natives speaking up in defense of their own group interests) and de facto by political correctness, pop culture, and social pricing, is not “privileged.”
A people not allowed to organize on the basis of their own identity and in defense of that identity and its interests are hardly “privileged” – it is the complete opposite. A people whose racial spokesmen are attacked in the streets with impunity, mocked by the leftist establishment, ridiculed in their own nation by aliens, deplatformed by corporations, and selectively targeted by the legal system – such a people are the opposite of “privileged.” The English in Rotherham were, and are, not “privileged.” White Americans and Europeans who cannot safely walk the streets of their own cities are not “privileged.” Compare James Watson – reduced to selling his Nobel Prize after being “unpersoned” for merely suggesting the possibility of racial differences in intelligence – to Al Sharpton – whose activist career is summarized here – who was a friend of Presidents (Obama), speaker at political conventions (Democrat), a mainstream political commentator (MSNBC) – and we see the reality of Colored Privilege vs. the fantasy of White Privilege.
C. Although I disagree with Sailer about the census, he is correct about “The Flight from White.” You see, Whites are so privileged that groups petition to NOT officially be counted as White. South Asians previously successfully removed themselves from the White category, and the MENA group wants to do the same now. People with any hint of “Indian Princess” ancestry in their family trees are desperate to be seen as non-White. Whites pose as non-White, trying to “pass” in the other direction. It is a strange sort of “privilege” indeed that people are so very eager NOT to partake of; it seems that the “invisible backpack” is a burden too heavy for anyone to want to carry.
2. Even if it did really exist, White Privilege would be justified, because it would not be “privilege” at all, in the sense of an undeserved largess (which actually describes Colored Privilege). One would not call Bill Gates “privileged” at Microsoft – it is his company. The Chinese are not “privileged” in China – it is their own country. Likewise, Whites are not “privileged” in their own nations – instead, it are the alien peoples given advantages in White countries who are the ones truly privileged. And if White Americans are “privileged” because they have a higher per capita net worth than Blacks and Hispanics, then Jews and Asians are privileged even more. Oh, the latter have their goodies because of “intelligence” and “hard work.” Yeah, and Whites are pretty smart and hard-working too, by the way – building nations that Jews and Asians want to migrate to.
3. If accusations of White Privilege are absurd – and they are – why do they exist? It is the lesson of the schoolyard: those who are weak and allow themselves to be bullied will continue to suffer so. Accusations of White Privilege made in the context of White Oppression and White Powerlessness are a form of bullying from the Left/Colored Alliance. Because Whites are a race of pathetic mewling cowards and never push back against this bullying they can expect more of it, just like the boy who allows himself to be pushed around in the schoolyard can expect nothing but more abuse. If the boy fights back, even if he loses, the bullying will likely stop, especially if he gets some good “licks” in; bullies do not like victims who fight back, since they prefer the meek and powerless. The abusive bullying of Whites as a race will decline in proportion to the extent that Whites actively and explicitly defend their interests as a race.
Ironically, it is precisely because Whites are not privileged that they are accused of being so. If Whites had true privilege no one would dare bring it up in fear of the consequences. It is only because Whites are a subaltern low-caste group that they can be bullied and gaslighted by being accused of having “privilege” while they are in reality a vilified powerless group losing their nations and their future.
I suppose that the real, hidden meaning of “White Privilege” is the privilege of being born as someone of European descent, and all that means racially, and with respect to being a legitimate heir to the Classical and Western/Faustian High Cultures. There’s racial envy and resentment involved, and a desire to tear down those that the Guks view, at least subconsciously, as better than themselves.
