Black Privilege/ Leftist Loony Watch In Academe

Black Privilege/ Leftist Loony Watch In Academe, by John Derbyshire.

Living as a white guy in America after having grown up elsewhere, I must say, I don’t see much ill-will towards blacks among my fellow whites. There are traces of it, I know; I read the comment threads. The vast majority of white Americans, however, wish no harm to blacks, nor any restriction of their civil rights. I never hear that from people I mix with, and I mix with all sorts.

What I do hear is a constant, steady, undercurrent of resentment, expressed in guarded tones for fear of the taboo enforcers — resentment of what you can only call black privilege.

You know what I mean: the Affirmative Action slots and set-asides, the excuses and free passes, the mealy-mouthed newspaper reports about “the robber was a tall man in his thirties,” all that.

You don’t file your taxes, you end up in jail; Al Sharpton doesn’t file his taxes, he’s invited to the White House. Black privilege.

It makes for resentment. It goes against the American grain. We’re supposed to be a country without a privileged class.

Blacks get a free pass for behavior that would draw sanction on whites or Asians.

BLM is of course Black Lives Matter, George Soros’s latest front in the war against normal life in the U.S.A.

The profane library protest occurred last November 12th — you may remember it — when 150 BLM activists descended on the Dartmouth college library where students were engaged in quiet study and research.

The activists made a lot of noise, addressing white students with well-documented screams of “F*** you, you filthy white f***s!,” and “F*** you, you racist s***!” There was a certain amount of touching and shoving, although no-one seems to have been socked in the jaw — a sad fact by itself, in my personal opinion.

Well, the administration of Dartmouth College conducted a lengthy investigation of this outrageous incident. Their conclusion was … Nothing to see here, folks. Move along, please.

I leave you to imagine the consequences if 150 nonblack students had occupied the library and screamed obscenities at blacks trying to study.

Blacks, however, get away with it. Why? Black privilege.

Black privilege is of course a PC-approved, anti-white racism”, a prejudice where people are treated differently based on race. It’s such an in-your-face hypocrisy that it is really a power game — you must accede to this outrageous lie because we can make you!
