What do you think her motivation was in posting this? Rather surprising, coming from a Bernie-bot.

We are in NYC on vacation. A few times I have been confused on the subway and random black people have been steering me in the right direction. Average people here seem to get along quite well.

"Thoughts?..."

Someone once described it this way: if White Privilege were a super power, it would be the power of invisibility. I think that's the most applicable analogy I've heard. White men in particular can navigate society, economic and power structures, without their skin color or gender becoming obstacles. That in no way implies that things are handed to them (us), just that it rarely if ever inhibits our progress. She and I talked about that analogy before, and she seemed to agree with that analysis.

The idea of Black Privilege is almost as silly as how most people understand White Privilege. To the extent that it exist, it does so only in context of a framework that disadvantages, to one degree or another, blacks and minorities. It's like saying "Black Privilege is getting your own colleges and universities without being viewed as racist" while ignoring the reason they emerged in the first place.

confused what this is all about.

just taking one of those points and flipping it to the victim's POV rather than the perpetrators, I'm not quite sure how having crimes committed against you go uninvestigated or unreported is an example of privilege.

a lot of those things aren't actually privileges, in any real sense. eg, all the various criticisms of "the media". being able to randomly blame other things for your own issues isn't privilege. anyone can blame anyone for anything, that doesn't mean the blame is justified.

You "might" have a case with affirmative action, depends on the specific circumstances of the specific AA you are talking about.

It's only if you aren't paying attention that you think hollywood only portrays black people in a positive light.

But anyway, my 2c are in. Carry on with the circle jerk.

That's never irrelevant or beside the point.

Mostly whether or not there is such a thing, and if these examples make the case for it.



I guess I missed the circle jerk part, though I'm fine with missing out on those, in general.

Some interesting stuff in there. They missed not having to wear sunscreen and looking good with a shaved head. =)


I thought this one was interesting:

"having Hollywood always present you in a positive light."

Really?

I think in very recent times that's fairly true, whether it be a sympathetic or positive light, but it's only been the past decade or so. Prior to that it certainly wasn't the case, hell anything from the 80's or 90's had the token black man who was almost universally shot or comedic relief or both.

Historically no, lately yes. I'm not going to argue whether decades of exploitive portrayals have been made up, because I don't care. Remember, Superfly, The Mack, Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song, Foxy Brown, Mandingo and other Blaxploitation film that played on stereotypes were not popular in the white community as much as they were popular in the black community.

You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Towers. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying stripes of venison on the empty car pool lane of some abandoned superhighway." T Durden

And not being pulled over by cops when you have done nothing wrong is also not a "privilege"

I haven't worn sunscreen in years and I look great with a shaved head.

Maybe I'm black.

That's the "dirty gi filter".

Yesterday I rolled with a chick who had a bloody nose, then I caught a whitebelt elbow to the eye brow and got cut.

My gi was covered in blood.

My wife seemed alarmed at first when I got home.

This evening I got caught in a half assed guillotine that was across my Adam's apple, fought out of it and now I can't talk.

Just got over an injury to the floating rib.

One day it will all be over and I'll just stick with kickboxing.

White belts must pay. lol.

Rolled with some 20 year old who has delusions of fighting a couple of weeks ago. Chilled, at the end of the round, told him to relax a little.

His next round was with our 28 year old, feminist, purple belt enforcer. Love her to death. I checked with her after class, and the direct quote is, "I choked the FUCK out of that guy."

LOL! Jiu Jitsu is the best. The BEST.
