To The Daily Sun,
Watching the news over the past months and hearing the same excuse from the left for the riots in black communities, the arrest of disproportionate numbers of blacks and we keep hearing one thing. "White privilege, white privilege, white privilege." What a crock of BS, all white privilege is, is that a higher proportion of whites get an education. Far too many whites still do not, and the fact that those who do not are no less well off then blacks who do not, proves the white privilege excuse is a lie.
Do we see the same kind of unrest, crime and poverty among Asian Americans? No! Because they value education and are among our most productive and successful citizens. How about Jews, though most are white, Jews have been discriminated against for centuries, and often still are. But again they value education and are among our most successful citizens.
Why is it only blacks who continue to wallow in poverty, illiteracy and victimhood? It's because liberal Democrats couldn't win political power without keeping blacks down and dependent on their shallow, empty promises.
No, really? Then how come cities like Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit, just to name a few that have been run by Democrats for decades with liberal policies and promises are in such bad shape? Why is it the black communities there are no better, if not worse off then before the civil rights laws were passed and administered by liberal progressive Democrats. To be clear I'm not talking about your local neighborhood working Democrats, I'm talking about the big shot political types who amass power for the sake of power and administer and ration rights like they own them. Then when questioned about their failures hide behind lies like "white privilege".
The only privilege around us is the privilege of the permanent political class which has evolved in this country. It reminds me of the nobility classes in Europe. Year after year, decade after decade it's the same names front and center in politics, the same families by linage or marriage. The same big money backing them up and the same big promises and ultimate failures year after year, decade after decade. We are doomed to repeat this cycle over and over unless we can break free of it.
Term limits is a start but more we need a way to remove failed laws, policies and yes, officials from power separate from their centers of mutual protection and funding. Frankly I hope someone a lot smarter then me knows how that can be done because I do not.
I only know what the problem is, which I have described. I do know it isn't to continue with these false narratives like white privilege.
