Can we finally just admit that "white privilege" is just a meaningless buzzword liberals throw out

QED. Great. What do you think you've won by personal attacks and false accusations? Do you think you're a uniter or a divider? Do you think you're educating people by calling them racists or do you think you're just driving them away and furthering national issues?
To be honest I don’t give a damn what racist people think

Here is how white privilege and, more broadly, Critical Race Theory is applied and disseminated by our institutions of higher "learning."

Step 1) Announce the obvious that racial prejudice is bad and should be eliminated.
Step 2) Divide everyone into categories according to the color of their skin.
Step 3) Continually measure and report the ways in which those groups of people divided according to skin color differ, statistically.
Step 4) Cite findings from (3) to deduce that differences must be the result of racial prejudice against those with bad outcomes and unearned privilege for those with good outcomes.
Step 5) Weaponize this against all dissenters.

This process commits itself to fomenting ongoing race tensions from practically the outset with its starting decision to base vast and ongoing research efforts on first dividing people into groups according to skin color and taking gathering data on them as skin-color-differentiated groups.

This ideology seeks to preserve racial differentiation, not eliminate it. It requires racial differentiation because it depends on data that can be used to claim race-based oppression and privilege are ongoing. What do you get when an ideology seeks to preserve racial differentiation? You get lunatic doublespeak like this: Colorblind Ideology Is a Form of Racism.
institutions of higher "learning...." ?
Which ones?

Here is the people that were on the "other side", so I guess a few of them were "good people" as well....we can all see the resemblance to the Nazis, right? Right?
It is a nice photo op... That group is FAR FROM INNOCENT. Check the video of the day, that group would take people from one group and push them into the Antifa group where they would get assaulted. They did not get outwardly violent, but they made sure that people would find themselves surrounded.

:rolleyes:

I get that there was a segment that were actual white supremacists. They were also the group that had the medic tent.

There were something like 5 or 6 different groups with different compatible agendas... plus the 2-3 people that had actual nazi paraphernalia. Most of the groups were actually opposed to the racists, but when antifa showed up those lines got blurred.

If you want to be honest here, you have to look at the nuance, not the headlines.
