Why Is Black Privilege A Racist Term, Yet White Privilege Is acceptable? Why Can’t We Say All Racism Is Evil?
Democrats never seem to get it that there are consequences to their actions. Case in point, the reaction from whites being told that somehow their skin color or their race is the problem. Instead of seeing that it is their rhetoric that gives rise to racism, the Democrats do what Democrats do best and blame it on everyone else but them.
On Tuesday, President Joe Biden said that former military and former police officers fueled the “growth of white supremacy during a CNN town hall on Tuesday.”
Biden said, “I got involved in politics, to begin with, because of civil rights and opposition to white supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan and the most dangerous people on America continue to exist. That is the greatest threat of terror in America, domestic terror. So I would make sure my Justice Department and the Civil Rights Division are focused heavily on those very folks. I would make sure we focus on how to deal with the rise of white supremacy. You see what’s happening the studies that are beginning to be done, maybe at your university as well, about the impact of former military, former police officers on the growth of white supremacy in some of these groups.”

He added, “You may remember in one of my debates from the former president, I asked him to condemn the Proud Boys he wouldn’t do. If he said stand standby and stand, ready whatever the phrase exactly was. It is a bane of our existence. It has always been, as Lincoln said, we have to you appear to a battle angels these guys are not and women they are in fact demented. They are dangerous people.”
This is what the Left misses out about the civil rights fight in the 1960s; there were radicals, the Black Panthers, some of the Black Muslim leaders that preached nothing but hate and separation, which seems to be the direction this civil rights fight has moved towards now. Yet what gave the movement strength was not demonizing people, rather the demand that all be treated equally, that no one was guilty of racism because of their skin color, nor should one be the victim of it because of theirs.
I got kicked off of Twitter, Facebook, and other such platforms because I dared ask the question, “If we substituted Black for White, then accused Blacks of having privilege because of their skin color, would this be racist?” The attacks from the left were swift; how dare I ask such a racist question, but what pushed them over the edge is when I asked, “Why is what I am saying is racist, yet you are saying the same thing, and it is not?”
The danger of this movement is to dare to ask hard questions.
I look to the 1920s, Europe was in chaos, you had new ideas rising, socialism and communism were in a death fight with each other, some of the socialist offshoots, like Fascism, were against any form of socialism, other than their own. We saw racism, hate of others rise to a new height; socialists wanted communists dead (this was seen in Germany, Italy, and Spain). When not hating someone for their ideology, people then turned against others because they were different.
This is where the rise of Anti Semitism grew to new heights. It is not like there was not this sitting there the whole time, and throughout history, the Catholic Church, Kings, Emperors blamed the Jews for all that failed them. This was an easy way to get unruly citizenship to stop looking to their leaders, instead of blaming the “different ones” the ones seen as benefiting from their bad fortune were to blame.
When Hitler first started to rise in the ranks of power in Germany, he found speaking racist attacks against Jews, showing his antisemitism was rejected by the German people, so he backed off, spoke of equality, of bringing wealth and self-determination for the German nation. He knew the people were under the heel of the allies due to demands for reparations after WW1; he played this, started his whisper campaign that it was Jewish financiers that were guilty.
It is the same thing we see today; outright hatred of the “Whites” is not accepted, so the left tries to teach the children of whites that they are not worthy of any praise, others are in pain because of their “Whiteness.” Leading up to the Second World War, things were less subtle. The German Fascist leaders demanded of Jews give up something due to their privilege, it was not much, but the token mattered to others. The Jews were asked to register their wealth to appease the Germans. The Jewish leaders agreed to this; little did they know, later this would be used to collect the wealth from Jews that the Fascists had sent to death camps.
In the end, Germany told the people that wealthy Jews controlled the majority of the wealth, so they passed laws to strip the Jews of their wealth and give it to Germans. “The robbery part [of Hitler’s decree] is embedded in this ideology that these people are parasites who attach themselves to us, and they live by sucking our blood, and we are entitled to punish them and take it all back,” says Peter Hayes, professor emeritus of history and German at Northwestern University and the author of How Was It Possible? A Holocaust Reader.
If this sounds familiar, you should not be surprised, the Whites today, with “White Privilege” are said to have stolen the money or wealth from minorities, the only way to remedy this is to tax the rich, which are mostly whites, this will bring equality to the masses.
Following the April 1938 property registry, Jewish citizens faced an increasing number of economic laws that chipped away at their livelihood. They lost allowances and exemptions for having children, and were forced into the highest tax bracket regardless of their income, writes historian Martin Thurau. From there, many Jewish-owned firms were falsely charged with tax evasion going back to the 1920s, on which they were forced to pay arrears.
For those Jews with the means to leave the country, legally emigrating meant relinquishing 50 percent of one’s monetary assets and then exchanging the rest of the remaining Reichsmarks for whatever country’s currency would be the final destination. “By late 1938, they were allowing Jews to keep only 8 percent of what their Reichsmarks were worth in the foreign country,” Hayes says—which only made it harder to find a haven since the Jewish refugees couldn’t take any of their savings with them.
Right now, the US has exit taxes in place if you give up your citizenship and leave the US, the government wants their pound of flesh before you leave, but there are cries for this to apply to any rich person who switches states or leaves the US to avoid taxes, how long until this is pushed into law?
Liberal states, like New York and California, where their “woke policies” are destroying their economies, are turning to their tax agents to go through the records of people leaving the states to see what they can tax them for before they leave, this includes even looking into what they spend on their pets.
New federal tax laws limiting the deduction of state and local income taxes have created incentives for wealthy New Yorkers to move to Florida or other lower-tax states. Last month, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo blamed wealth flight for its $2.3 billion revenue shortfall in December and January.
“Tax the rich, tax the rich, tax the rich,” he said. “We did. Now, God forbid, the rich leave.”
This is why Biden is pushing this stimulus; it is not to give all of us $1,400 extra dollars, although it is a great front, it is to pass wealth to the liberal states that are hurting due to their policies, Biden is determined to support them and finance their “wokeness.”
This is not being taken to the next step, there are now cries for whites to be taxed, with a special tax just for being white.
The article, titled, “It’s Time for White People to Pay for Privilege: The Equality Tax,”argues that all minorities face economic disadvantages.
“Racist employers, a disproportionate targeting of minorities by law enforcement, racial wage gaps, poor inner-city schools; these all contribute to what is an undeniable reality for minorities,” the article claims.
To fix this, white people should pay a higher tax to make up for their privilege. The writer suggests a five percent tax to start with. A single white man should pay a five percent “equality tax,” while a single white woman would only pay 4.5 percent in the “equality tax.”
Clinton played into the picture in 2016, said on the Al Sharpton show”
Today this is being carried further, there are calls for taxes for whites that should be as follows:
- Single white person over 18 years or older – 15%
- Married white couple filing jointly – 25%
- Each white child under 18 years old living in household – 10%
One has to wonder, how long until they put this in effect?
As you can see, under Biden’s America, we are quickly running down the same path the Germans did; first, they attacked a people based on their race, now are demanding what the Fascist did in the 1930s, that whites pay a surtax due to their identity.
This is racial hatred:
So is this:
Until we learn that all are equal, no one is greater than the other, we will continue to be divided.
