      Kemble and her supporters must still be scratching their heads wondering what happened. White privileged wokesters will eventually get hosted on their own petard and heaved into the nearest junkyard. It’s what many of them fear deep down despite their “we believe” lawn signs.

    I blame my “white privilege” on the the Social Sciences Departments of academia, (the “Kool-Aid Cartels”). Without their tireless, imaginative, and QUIXOTIC work on the subject, the condition would be unknown in this day and age. Anyone who accepts and embraces victim-hood status is just “nailing their feet to the floor”.

      “nailing their feet to the floor” really nails it pFArts except for those who have learned how to monetize victimology, although that will only be a short-term benefit and more importantly a much greater long-term deficit.

    I blame the media and the race baiters- Al, Jesse, Louis, everyone at CNN and MSNBC, etc etc…. If you tell someone they are racist or privileged over and over again, eventually they start believing it. I think that is their plan and I’ve stopped listening.

      I guess the woke folks need to tell me that I’m racist/priviledged a few thousand more times. At this point, I don’t believe a damned thing those pricks say.

    I’m eternally indebted to my (white) parents for my white privilege which I continue to exercise enthusiastically and unapologetically. I grew up in a town that was 90% German; the ethnic minorities were the Swedes and Norwegians–and a smattering of Poles. Talk about the good old days.

    Daunte Wright’s aunt, Naisha Wright, said at the press conference.

    “My nephew… I don’t care what nobody got to say about him. He was loved. He was ours. He came from us. My brother and my sister are hurt. Like I said, this is no broken home. This is no broken home. This is 23 years of love.”

    Be it 20 years or 23 years, I’m kinda doubtful it was a conventional family.

    At any rate, I blame my white, non-Woke parents for the pitiful law-abiding citizen I am. Their upbringing cost me many a consequential confrontation w/ those who protect and serve. Not fair that I never got to experience fear, dissonance and violence like the Wright family !

    Who do I blame for my white privilege? My parents. They were married and provided a loving, nurturing, safe environment for all us chillen. Thing is, … we didn’t even know we were privileged.

    Too bad all the black chillen can’t be privileged, too.

    I blame God!

    Not really, but just to point out that I was born this way. Didn’t have any say so one way or the other of who my parents were. Didn’t have any say so on where my parents decided to live, the money they made, the house we lived in, the church we went to, the values I was raised with, my grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, brothers and sisters. None of it!

    Just happened that way.

    So why do some find me guilty of white privilege when I did not graduate from college, work a lower paying job than many of the people of color, males and females, who do have college degree’s and work for the same company that I work for?

    I don’t blame them for the money they make and the prestige that they are entitled to for the jobs they do. The jobs they do are much more complex and require them to have a much greater amount of knowledge and expertise than my job requires of me. Therefore, in my mind, they deserve every cent of the money they make.

    Also, how do I as a white person have more privilege than say former President Barak Obama? Who would you rather sit down for supper with, me or Morgan Freeman? Me or Denzel Washington? Me or Oprah Winfrey? Me or Tina Turner?

    Point is that I would give a lot to sit down with someone like Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. who is a brilliant man who I very much admire for his intellect, rather than former President Donald J. Trump who is white like me.
