    Check your white privilege.

    So it turns out, according to this graphic published by the national museum of African American history and culture, these attributes of your character/nature are manifestations of your white privilege, so if any of this applies to you, stop it, your white privilege is showing.

    “work before play”
    “hard work is the key to success.”
    The “nuclear family” (mother father and children) is the “ideal social unit”
    Objective, rational and linear thinking.



    That terrible white culture apparently also emphasizes respect for authority, delayed gratification, self-reliance, independence and autonomy, the value of property rights and ownership, progress, planning for the future, politeness, and decision-making.

    Well fuck that. I'm so ashamed of my white privilege I'm going off to riot and loot (wanna join me reacharound).

    Check your white privilege.-ec90pqvxgac2z16-png

    Before anyone gives me shit about being racist this is from a black (is that racist? Sorry) organisation.

    Apparently objective, linear thinking is bad. As is valuing hard work, and a work before play attitude. Not to mention that considering a family unit to have a father, OMG WTF Check you white privilege.
    Quite frankly, when it gets to this I must admit I'm starting to get less sympathetic. Of course black lives matter TOO.

    Whiteness | National Museum of African American History and Culture

    The page it general is reasonable but be careful of pushback when you start saying things like linear thinking and objectivity, delayed gratification and respect for authority are a manifestation of white privilege

    I think you're taking that entirely the wrong way.

    It's not saying those things are negatives it's simply using them to illustrate the ideals of the pervasive culture.

    What's more it's entirely correct.

    In some parts. I fully endorse the emphasis on the scientific method - keep God in the church and essential oils in the bathroom.

    Reading the article they really want me (us) to admit you Americans have white privilege. But then what? So I say, yes, I admit my white privilege, what then? Am I expected to reject any benefits that spring from it?

    Nope, acknowledging it's real and others don't have it costs you nothing.

    That's the best part.

    Admitting to white privilege isn't saying that you, personally, didn't also struggle and have issues and obstacles in your life it's simply recognizing that your skin color wasn't one of them and that non-whites in a white culture don't have that benefit.

    Personally I completely acknowledge it. Is it OK to admit I kind of happy about it?
    It's shameful what the white races did to the not white races in times gone by, my dutch forebears included, and I now benefit from that but what can I do, it's become a white mans world.
    (Will it become a yellow mans world eventually)

    Saw a (some) part doco a while back about Cooks voyages and there's no doubt he was a great achiever but what happened to the Maori, (and the Aboriginals in Aus and Indians in the U.S.) is horrific.
    Imagine it, some folks turn up on the beach and obliterate your society and take over your land and everything it has and murder and holocaust your people and then marginalize you and whats left of your culture in your own lands.
    But in the present time, what happened happened and the descendants of those people still live marginalized lives in what is THEIR land while we white people lord it. I mean, WTF.

    Maybe.
    It'd be interesting to see a corresponding black culture diagram.

    I think you are kinda conflating a few issues and the very much factual 'Aspects & Assumptions Of White Culture' with 'white privilege' and characterizing them as negatives but that's not the point of those posters or whatever they are.

    The history is of course relevant but he fact is that there are still disadvantages to being non-white in a culturally dominant white society

    "You're" and that's not what white privilege is.

    Actually Chico's the perfect example...

    He's quite clearly thick, poorly educated, and at best suited for menial labor yet he's white and still has white privilege which means none of those issues are down to him being white. The fact that he has had every advantage in life and in a society where white males can actually fail upwards (a-la Trump) and still hasn't managed to even get an education is all down to him.

    It's all simply because he's a thicko.

    I suppose so. But again, that's not what white privilege is.

    Do McD's have standardized wages?

    Image is shit...

    President Lyndon B. Johnson once said, "If you can convince the lowest white man he's better than the best colored man, he won't notice you're picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he'll empty his pockets for you."

    Why? You are not American and have never been there. You have called other posters here Niggers and insinuated via red repo that I was gay for posting anti-racist views. You are a waste of time Sheriff Cujo as I have no respect for you as a poster anymore.

    You have nothing to say, I get it. Your mind is vacant. It's ok. But SINCE your mind is vacant and you have nothing to say then stop posting on this thread.

    It's not completely accurate.
    For example, I'm a pinky-brown colour and whereas skinny blondes can be fascinating they're not the only variety of delicious femme.

    I am confused. I don't get the title of this thread, where does the word "privilege" comes in play as it pertains to the graphic?

    Privilege :
    a special right, advantage, or immunity granted or available only to a particular person or group.


    These perceived aspects of "white" culture (real or not) are not privileges , they are benefits available to all that choose to live by these cultural norms and mores .
    Any racial , ethnic or cultural group can chose to live by these principles and derive alleged benefit if it chooses to.

    It's kinda strange, as a kid I always wished I was growing up in America.


    As an adult, I thank my lucky stars that I didn't.
