In the U.S many groups scream that black lives matter and that white privilege needs to be stifled through protestations and historical lies about whites (according to the U.S. Census Bureau those races included in the “white” demographic are: Anglo-European, Mediterranean, North-African, and Middle-Eastern races). North African races are allowed to claim either African or white as their race, and most of them claimed to be white. However when many of those same people applied for federal “minority benefits” they claim they are black to get the MANY benefits provided to them and denied to the white race.
I was born in 1960, and from the time I saw the race riots in 1966 on my black and white TV I thought “Those people are being hurt!”, and they were. Then the federal government began giving minorities benefits that I never could get (I didn’t complain). In my Catholic school they got free this, and free that (I didn’t complain). Desegregation happened (even when it stifled their own education) so our government could say they were being fair (I didn’t complain). Then when the economy tanked I went into the U.S. Navy. I was treated as a second-class citizen next to blacks because they were the minority and I was white (I was silent). For the 20 years that I was in the service of my country this condition existed. Every promotion test I took there was a “race status” box on the test that enabled minorities to excel above me because of their race. Some minorities promoted over me lacked the skills for the job so much that although they were promoted, the Navy was hesitant to put them in critical positions for fear they could cause the death of some other sailor (I began to notice a pattern). Not all were “skill-lacking”, and some were “highly-skilled”.
I retired from the service in 1998 and came back to St. Louis, MO to start my life with my family fresh. My white status did not stand in my way because the company I started working for hired employees based on skill levels and regional demographics. My wife is from Southeast Asia, and she found work equally as fast as I did. After 9/11 happened I started seeing how many blacks got REAL privilege (I began to investigate). A black veteran of Desert Storm needed insurance and a black friend of his told about the many benefits blacks can get from the VA. Keep in mind this man worked in the motor-pool and never saw any action at all. Almost immediately he received 100% disability and free VA medical care for life. He bragged to me that almost all the black veterans he knows get the same benefits and no one could take them away. His monthly disability check is more than my retirement pension for my 20 years of military service. Since it was VA disability he still works full time for the same company as I work for because he doesn’t have to report it. I told my white veteran friend that he should try to get the same benefits but he told he was not a minority and somehow was not qualified for those same benefits. Then the black people living in Ferguson, MO and other places throughout the country complained that the police are murdering them for no reason, even when there is video evidence of no wrongdoing by the law enforcement officer. Their race-baiting group leaders will spin any lie to get even more benefits. They suck-in stupid white people that feel they somehow are responsible when they are not. They even force false race issues at our universities, forcing good people to resign. Then they have the audacity to preach that white people have privilege! Let me school you on this.
Blacks have had the overwhelming privilege since I can remember. I’ve had to work harder than blacks for everything I have EARNED in my life, and I have never had any privilege whatsoever! Blacks have, and still have privilege over me. Your legalized hate groups that carry your “black lives matter” signs are the biggest racists I’ve ever had the displeasure of knowing. Evidence of your racism is displayed because you can’t even bring yourselves to carry a sign that reads “ALL LIVES MATTER”, because that would include white lives. Black lives do not matter more than any other race on our big blue earth. Those in the “race baiting” business need to fabricate lies to ensure their money-making racism doesn’t end. They have to make the stinking lies palatable to ignorant and gullible whites to dupe them into helping your racist agenda, and by labeling their hard work as “white privilege”. Your “affirmative action” days are coming to an end. I pray you lose your “black privilege status” in the most eye-opening way possible. Intelligent whites are beginning to see red, not black. We’ve had enough from your brand of equality.
