White Privilege is a Lie

Every country’s majority population has “privilege.”

I wouldn’t have white privilege in the Congo. In fact I’d have the opposite of white privilege.

Saying the majority population in a country has a built-in advantage or “privilege” in that country is a self-evident truth.

It’s more like home-field advantage than anything.

But now it’s seen as bad and evil–instead of an obvious fact of life–for America to favor the particular ethnic group that has represented the historical majority in this country for three-plus centuries (going back before the founding).

Eradicating “white privilege” in America has been the main focus of affirmative action policies since the late 1960s. It has become secular America’s de facto religion: white people must recognize and denounce their original sin of “white privilege” or else be condemned as Racists™️.

Even lots of white “conservatives” have accepted and internalized the idea of white privilege. The difference between them and the woke, self-hating white leftists is only that they feel no guilt and angst over their white privilege. But many still acknowledge white privilege is a thing.

Norway is a country built for and by Norwegians. Its culture and customs are made for Norwegians. Norway is a Norwegian’s natural habitat. It’s where they come from and where they are meant to live. It’s made for Norwegians. They made it, and it made them.

The idea of “Norwegian privilege” didn’t even exist until the first Swede walked across the border and settled down in a foreign country built by and for Norwegians.

A lion does not have “lion privilege” over a penguin that immigrates to the Savannah. The Savannah is simply the lion’s natural habitat. The Savannah was there before the lion so the lion adapted and made the Savannah his home. The penguin that immigrated from Antarctica should not blame the lion for being better able to survive and thrive in the Savannah, just as the lion cannot blame the penguin for the penguin being more at home in Antarctica if the situation was reversed.

The idea of white privilege in a white country is as stupid as saying the 49ers had “49er Privilege” at their home stadium in the NFC Championship Game, and that the Green Bay Packers were helpless victims because they did not enjoy the same home field advantage.

It will soon be illegal to say but it doesn’t make it any less true: America is and has been  a white country since day one. The elites are doing everything they can to change that but until they do, America is still a white country. So of course white people are going to have the natural advantage here. Same goes for England and Germany and Sweden. A white country means a white society and hence a natural “bias” toward white people.

A Black Country results in a black society and an inevitable bias toward black people over all others.

If there are 100 people in a room and 95 of them are Asian, with the remaining 5 being white, the whites will not have any sort of privilege or advantage to speak of.

It’s just natural. In-groups, out-groups. Majorities, minorities.

People are naturally “biased” to favor their own kind. However, modern white liberals may be the first ethnic subgroup in human history to actually have trained themselves (or, if you prefer, been trained) to be biased against their own ingroup and in favor of outgroups. The media, Hollywood and the education system have really done a number on white liberals.

Through this lie of “white privilege,” lots white people are being brainwashed to actively work to demolish their own race.

They have been convinced that America is “biased” towards white people, and that this is wrong and must be changed. They are driven by a tremendous sense of guilt over their perceived “privilege” over helpless minorities.

But it’s not even technically “biased.” I put that word in quotations for a reason: because it’s not really accurate to say America is “biased” toward white people. It was a white country and a white society, until other people started showing up. Then, by definition, it became “biased” toward its white majority, but only because outsiders started moving there. There’s no such thing as an in-group until an out-group is introduced. There’s no majority until there’s a minority.

From the earliest days of America until the waves of mass foreign immigration that began in 1965 with the Ted Kennedy Immigration reform, America was a 90% white country. So the idea of white privilege didn’t even exist: it was simply a white country. There was no consciously-developed system where the people in power said, “We’ve got to make sure this country favors white people.” It was just an inherent byproduct of the fact that America was a 90% white nation. No one ever thought about the idea of “white privilege” or keeping white people atop the racial pecking order.

The term “white privilege” didn’t even exist until the 1960s, and only entered the mainstream vocabulary in the 1990s:

“White privilege” wasn’t a thing until the 1960s, when our government decided that we were to be a “diverse” country instead of a white one.

You can’t expect a native population to suddenly and immediately bend over backwards to cater to a newly-arrived minority of outsiders. That’s not how it works. Outsiders generally have to be the ones to change and adapt to the customs and ways of their new country. They have to assimilate–in other words, try to be like the native population as much as they possibly can to fit in.

You can’t just move to someone else’s country and then complain that the people who were already there, who have historically populated that country, have “privilege.” Well, no shit they do: it’s their country. They founded it, they built it, and they make up its society. Of course it’s “biased” towards them.

It’s their country.

If you don’t like it, then go back to your own country where it’s “biased” towards you.

I can’t move to Pakistan and claim society’s biased towards Pakistanis. That’s idiotic.

Outsiders in foreign lands are naturally at a disadvantage, and probably always will be no matter how much they assimilate. As long as you’re the minority group, you will always be at a disadvantage compared to the majority group.

It sucks but it’s a fact of life no matter where you go. If you don’t like it you can leave.

But of course none of the people complaining about “white privilege” actually will leave, will they? No, because it’s objectively better here, and they all know it.

But that doesn’t stop them from wanting to have their cake and eat it too: they want to come here because it’s better than their old country, but they also don’t want to be treated as foreigners.

Well, tough shit. You can’t have it both ways. You want home field advantage? Then go back home.

You want to live in our land of opportunity? Then you forfeit your home field advantage. You’ll have to adapt to the new playing field.

Weigh the pros and cons, then make a decision.

Fortunately for you this country you bash for having “white privilege” is also the most hospitable and most welcoming to foreigners and immigrants in the world. Immigrants can get rich and famous and beloved in this country. Immigrants can make it to the top—hell, one was even President. Even if your dream is not fame and fortune, there are plenty of immigrants who become wealthy, successful, secure and happy in this country. There are countless examples of foreigners who have come to America and overcome the supposed albatross of “white privilege.”

They made it. Why can’t you?

I’m white, and most of the landlords I’ve had in my life weren’t white. Most were first or second generation immigrants. What kind of “white privilege”-based society would allow that? I’ve had plenty of nonwhite bosses. (Even nonwhite female bosses. Some patriarchy.)

And try being an American expat in another country. See how far your white privilege gets you. Here are a couple of examples of what it’s like to be a foreigner living in Japan. Spoiler: it’s not easy.

The idea of “white privilege” is completely illogical to anyone who thinks about it for more than 10 seconds. The shark has “shark privilege” over me when I’m in the ocean, but he probably couldn’t do much to me when he’s on dry land, my turf.

I have as much “white privilege” over a black immigrant from Nigeria as he has “black privilege” over me in his own country. Actually, a black Nigerian has it much easier in America than a white American would have it in Nigeria. The evidence is in the number of black Nigerians that want to immigrate to America and the lack of white Americans that want to immigrate to Nigeria.

If you believe in white privilege in America but not in black privilege in Nigeria, you’ve been brainwashed.

You should ask yourself, “By whom?” And “why?”

***

To sum up, racial-majority “privilege” is not:

  1. Unique to America.
  2. A deliberately-constructed system.
  3. Unjust.
  4. In need of rectification.

Now, there is a very big difference between a society that deliberately discriminates against and oppresses certain groups on the grounds of ethnicity, and a society that is simply inherently favorable to the people that a. built that society, and b. have been the majority population in that country historically.

The idea that America has a deliberately-constructed system in place designed specifically to oppress nonwhites is just nonsense. That system (“Jim Crow”) was dismantled decades ago. And the system we created after Jim Crow has been a system designed to rectify the sins of Jim Crow. Most social policies enacted since the 1960s have had the express goal of favoring nonwhites, if anything.

Everyone knows the post-Jim Crow era has been the “affirmative action” era, but “affirmative action” is better described as nonwhite privilege.

Hire someone for a job because they’re not a white male. Grant someone admission to a college that they otherwise couldn’t get into because they’re not a white male. Hold non-white males to a different set of laws and rules simply because of their skin color or gender.

Everyone has a story from their own life where they’ve seen nonwhite privilege at work. It’s the law of the land.

Why do you think Elizabeth Warren pretended to be an Indian? If America was truly based on white privilege, then why would she have made efforts to claim she wasn’t white?

Of course, the whole idea behind nonwhite privilege is to level the playing field–in other words, give preferential treatment to non-white males so that they can “catch up” to white males, who were previously the supposed privileged group.

But that still doesn’t change what affirmative action is. It’s nonwhite privilege.

Affirmative action is nonwhite privilege.

Why do you think the next 007 is a black woman? It’s not because Ian Fleming’s books describe 007 as a black woman. It’s not because casting a black woman as 007 would lead to more ticket sales.

It’s because our cultural elites have decided that White Men Are Bad and their time is over. It’s because they believe there are too many Old White Men around. In fact, the term “Old White Men” has become a pejorative over the past five years or so.

The Cultural Marxists want cultural redistribution.

So not only is the idea of “white privilege” in America nonsensical, if anything the opposite exists today.

Busting the Myth that We NEED Mass Immigration to “Fix” Our Declining Birthrate

This argument is often trotted out to argue for more immigrants:

IMG_4880.jpeg

On its face, however, the idea is nonsensical: if you’re concerned about falling birthrates, then why don’t you seek to promote higher birth rates among American citizens?

Why is the go-to “solution” to the “problem” always TONS AND TONS OF IMMIGRANTS?

Why is that always their first (and only) solution?

That’s how you know they have another agenda. If they actually cared about boosting the birthrate, they’d put forth policies that—stay with me here—actually boost the birthrate.

But they don’t. The “declining birth rates!!!” pseudo-hysteria is a sham. It’s a flimsy excuse to continue mass immigration, and it’s time to put it to bed.

Problem is, a lot of supposed “Market-Based Conservatives” have fallen for it, too. They seem to ignore the fact that Democrats exclusively benefit from immigration.

Don’t fall for the bullshit. Anyone pretending to be concerned about falling birthrates is just making an excuse to overrun this country with foreigners.

And who ever said a stagnant/declining population is a bad thing in and of itself?

First of all, population goes in cycles. Everything does. We’ll go through a period of booming populations, and then a period of shrinking populations.  No trend lasts forever. To say otherwise is myopic and small minded. It exposes a lack of historical awareness.

Fertility rates rise, fertility rates fall:

1280px-Demographic-TransitionOWID.png

Look at Stage 5: the birth rate line is going back up. Things in this world go in cycles.

And has there ever been a documented case of a nation disappearing off the face of the earth because it simply stopped reproducing? Of course not.

Declining birthrates in the developed world are not part of some new phase in human history where we have stopped reproducing. It’s not the next step on the evolutionary ladder. People are still the same.

You want to increase birth rates? Enact a total and complete ban of online porn, which is rendering young men impotent at astonishing rates, and stop the illegal immigration, which keeps wages down.

People need to be financially stable to have children and settle down. It’s quite simple. But wages haven’t risen in decades, and most young people are broke. So they balk at the idea of starting a family.

And stop promoting “female empowerment,” for God’s sake. We live in a society where women are encouraged to forgo marriage and motherhood to saddle themselves with $100k in student debt so they can work soul-crushing jobs shuffling paper and making Power Points for multinational megacorporations, until they wake up in their mid-late 30s and lament the fact that they missed out on their prime fertility years.

What was it all for? So they could make $65k a year and have money to Buy Nice Stuff?

The reasons behind falling birthrates in the developed world are no mystery. But our political establishment has no interest in addressing these problems.

And these “economically-minded” Smart People fretting over the birthrate always point to Japan—Japan, Japan, Japan. If we don’t fix our falling population with Tons And Tons of Poor Immigrants, we’ll end up like Japan.

Japan has had a falling birthrate for years. Its population is has officially been in decline since 2011.

And yet, what’s so wrong with Japan?

IMG_4881.jpeg

I’ve been to Japan. Cernovich is correct. It’s very clean, very safe and has a strong culture. It’s a high-trust society with one of the lowest crime rates on earth.

This is what Japan looks like:

IMG_4172.jpg

You could eat off that street. When I visited Tokyo, that’s what most streets looked like, too. But don’t believe your lying eyes: I guess Japan is actually a dystopian hellhole because its population is declining. The Economically-Minded Conservatives told me so.

Japan is safe, clean and culturally strong despite its falling population and notoriously strict immigration policies, which Smart Conservatives at Washington Think Tanks tell us are very bad things. Apparently Japan hasn’t gotten the memo.

Japan, due to its strict immigration laws, a homogeneous population with very few outsiders. That’s why it’s so clean and safe and has such high social trust.

Immigration would ruin Japan.

Its low birth rate and falling population haven’t had a material impact on the quality of life in Japan. It’s a very nice place to live with a high standard of living and one of the world’s highest GDPs per capita.

But mass immigration would ruin Japan, like it has ruined everywhere else.

The “solution” would end up being many times worse than the “problem.”

In fact, mass immigration to Japan would be a “solution” to a problem that doesn’t exist.

This myth that a booming population by any means is always good, and self-evidently so, must be dismantled.

Japan, a country Smart Economists point to as the “nightmare scenario” for falling populations, is in reality proof-positive that a falling population is nothing to fear.

“If we don’t boost immigration to increase our fertility rate, we’ll end up like Japan!”

You mean clean, safe and with a strong social fabric? Sign me up.

Ann Coulter had a good explanation for America:

Undoubtedly the first option would be better.

In regards to our falling birthrate, we can either:

  1. Do nothing. Or:
  2. Institute pro-natal policies to increase the birthrate among American citizens who are already living here.

The idea that the only solution to our falling birthrate is to flood the country with poor foreigners is utterly ridiculous. And yet this is the consensus position of the political and cultural establishment.

The reason, of course, that they want to flood the country with foreigners is not that they are Super Concerned about the population decreasing.

It’s because they want to phase you out and replace you with new “Americans” that will vote overwhelmingly Democrat.

 

More White Privilege: LA Schools Over 30% White Get Funding Cuts

Systemic racism:

“NORTH HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Outrage has grown at Walter Reed Middle School in North Hollywood, as the school faces layoffs and increased class sizes due to a law limiting funds for schools with a higher white student body. 

The Los Angeles Unified School District provides more funding for schools where the white population is below 30 percent. 

In a letter to parents, the district noted the highly regarded middle school had been above the percentage for the past couple years.”

But I was told predominantly white schools were hogging all the education funding and depriving needier minority schools Because Racism, and that this perpetuates a vicious cycle where minorities are held down due to their sub-par schools?

It gets better:

“The racial formula was a condition imposed by court decisions dealing with desegregation in the 1970s.”

Wait, now you’re telling me that the American education system has been diverting funds away from white schools to nonwhite schools since the 1970s?

They’ve been aware of the disparity in outcome between white and nonwhite schools since the 1970s, and have been trying to close the gap for nearly 50 years, and still not much has changed?

Not only does White Privilege not exist, it hasn’t existed for a long time.

And as for why increased funding for minority schools hasn’t translated into better results in minority communities, maybe that’s because 50+ years of Liberal Welfare Statism and Victim Narrative peddling is the problem, not White Racism.
