What do you think /pol/? Are there valid points?
Like most of the shit, it's written to be unfalsifiable in most respects. Some factual errors, some insinuative errors, all with the intent of being unable to 'prove wrong' by design.
Yes. Some things are easier for being white. Some things are harder. That's not privilege, that's life. Now fuck off.
>Are there valid points
In short, no.
Here are some red flags:
>no citations for numbers except for one
>using statistics with no reference
>Westerncentric argument about first world countries
you know what OP?
I think you are actually right
You have cotributed nothing to this
Most inventions were made by men not women
The world was built by men
You should be aware of the privilege to live in he same world as HET WHITE MALE GODS
How can this be true? My best friend in High School was black. He's just as smart as me. Literally. We got the exact same SAT score, took 90% of the same classes. He got a full ride at Yale. This statistic is horseshit.
Here's a perfect example of direct, unmitigated bullshit. A white person is not 71% more likely to be admitted 'because of their race'. Furthermore, you'll notice that the numbers, both times, add up to 100%. That's a hint that it has nothing to do with what is asserted, but is rather using a different statistic to draw this faulty conclusion.
She presents these statistics but provides no evidence as how they demonstrate the exists be of white privilege and not that racists are correct. She makes little effort to link her example to her central argument an ontop of that she makes no arguments for institutionalize racism being a thing, she presents it as a truth, and tells people to go educate themselves rather than actually presenting arguments
As somebody who is a grader for AP English papers, her rhetoric is weaker than that of a 4th grader and any highschool student could look at it and see how her entire argument is nonexistent and boils down to "here are some numbers! Go educate yourself!"
There is nothing to refute as she has made no arguments. The statistics are true and she made no arguments for their interpretation of them for people to argue against.
Masochistic and pathetic.
Didn't mention that about 90% of interracial crime is black on white, and the coverage of the trayvon Martin and brown shootings blow the media coverage of whites only crap out of the water.
Also it uses the same old "you're ignorant" bullshit argument as per usual.
Why should I care about the welfare of black people?
Why should I, as a white person, make any concessions, economically, politically or militarily to those of another breed?
71% of bachelor's degrees are earned by whites.
29% are earned by PoC
PoC make up roughly 30-35% of America. 29% of Bachelor's degrees being earned by PoC sounds about right.
This is the part where I get incredulous.
I can't walk around living my whole life trying not to hurt other peoples feelings, that is unreasonable. If what they say is true, everything they are doing to try to stop it is futile and nothing more than vanity.
I would rather not live my life for other people.
Now she admits to being 'racist' with no substantive definition of what exactly 'racism' is, then asserts that "You'll know you understand privilege when you see it all around you, and if you don't see it all around you then you just don't understand it yet!" That's classic Kafkatrapping.
If blacks want an education, they should worker harder and get better grades. Hell, with affirmative action functionally-illiterate negroes can get into college because "muh oppression". Hell, this whole comic is retarded.
It's not even cited so it's not even worth addressing.
But even if it were true, with no strings attached, the next line would explain why blacks are rejected more. Universities like people who graduate, not drop out.
It's like the author thinks universities just hand out degrees in a lottery, and you have a better chance if you're white.
Statistics that don't explain a shit.
You can use the same to prove that "POC" (they are black, not red, or blue) are inferior, and white is masterrace.
And it does not explain other factors (socioeconomic origin, "cultural capital", etc)
your no-effort internet comic has changed the way i see the world.
i find myself thoroughly humbled and will apologize immediately to the next POC i find for all the harm i have somehow done to them.
Lets see, we can take all her shitty points and prove racism is correct.
>most crimes are intraracial. This is because niggers are criminals and gang violence is rampant
>news reports interracial because they are race baiting Jews and reporting more gang shootings is not interesting
>white people are superior workers so a past felony still makes them better than pickers of cotton at anything but picking cotton
>blacks get into college on affirmative action but still manage to get their degree less often because they are fucking dumb
>White privilege exists!
>When you see it, you'll know! You'll know!!!
>White privilege is the privilege of being ignorant of the world around us! (Despite many PoC's taking no interest in damn near anything outside of their sphere. They stick their heads in the sand and stay ignorant while the majority of well-informed people are white. But that's white privilege I tell you! Knowing about anything is white privilege!)
that's like saying "I have human privilege. I was born with a really huge brain that has given me and my kind a unprecedented competitive advantage with other lifeforms. But I should feel ashamed of this and make sure I am aware of the fortune I have for being the product of successive successful generations and... vote democrat?"
I wonder how much student debt this girl has.
Why do they use this statistic as some kind of clear evidence that there is a privileged to being white and not as clear evidence that blacks commit more crimes?
Unless they are arguing it is a privilege to not commit crimes?
>more non-whites in prison than whites
>see white privilege is real!
What if (and here is a crazy idea) non-whites actually just commit more crimes than whites!??
>b-but that's racist!
The comic is trash.
It's pretty much just ethnic communism dressed up in newspeak.
By definition success is the currying of privilege in the form of money, status and assets.
Calling it "capital" has become a red flag so now they have switched tactics and called it "priveledge".
Their answer is always redistribution through social services or the increase of their own power base through funding education.
>This is the part where I get incredulous.
You actually believe the shit she said prior to this without seeing the research yourself and finding out what it really says?
You know what? I'll be a man and admit it: there is such a thing as white privilege. I benefit from being white. Society has changed, but I had a better upbringing, because my parents had a better upbringing, because their parents had a better upbringing, because they were white, because they benefited directly from racism. And you know what? I don't care. Not one fucking iota. I benefited indirectly from racism and oppression, through absolutely no fault of my own, so I refuse to feel guilty or bad about it. Furthermore, the idea that this can all be "solved" or "made right" through any sort of government intervention, socialism, Marxism, essentially any sort of forced redistribution of wealth, affirmative action, or legislation, is nothing more than a pipe dream. I am assuming this is the end game of all of this "white privilege" agenda pushing. This isn't about raising awareness, is it? This is about laying the ground work for some sort of reparations, something major, isn't it? Well, go ahead and try it.
Here's a little secret, all the big dogs in power, the true power elite, they may be pushing this SJW agenda, they may be pushing this hard core new liberalism, but they don't give two fucks about you. The people in power use race, religion, ideology, petty differences, and wedge issues to keep us at each other's throats while they rape the shit out of us. What we have in the United States is what I call "inverted fascism", due to the fact that I can't think of a better term for it. The government has melded with the biggest corporations, but instead of making decisions that benefit the nation, they make decisions that benefit the power elite.
But go ahead and cry about "white privilege", see where that gets you. If you're not white, your people got fucked in the past, leaving you with a little more work to do to get ahead. You can either suck it up and get cracking, or you can cry like a bitch and try to make whitey feel bad.
My God...you're right! That's the best way to understand this privilege. I...I DO have human privilege!
I will immediately travel to the Congo and set up a voting booth that only votes straight-ticket Democrat and proceed to register our ape friends. We can't deny them their rights just because of our unearned privilege!
Alright, I'll bite.
>When it comes to school, I'm 78% more likely to be admitted into a university because of my race. A POC with my exact same grades only has a 22% chance.
>And once I'm admitted, I'm more likely to receive my degree
What are you saying, that colleges purposely go after POC's just to see them fail despite being already admitted and already paying tuition? They have no history of doing so, and no reason for doing so either.
>The likelyhood that I will go to prison in my lifetime is about 4-118. A POC's chances run to about 44-50%.
This doesn't show any implication or proof of an institutional bias. You can literally redefine these statistics to prove POC's are more dangerous than whites.
>Although my favorite statistic is that 82-91% of homicides are interaracial BUT major news outlets focus on interracial homicides more than 60% of the time
Have you seen the news. Do you even watch it? It's literally Jamal after Jamal getting killed by big bad evil "whitey."
Your comic's a shit m8. There's little to no proof, and the hard evidence it does cite is 4 years outdated, has no links, and are open to so much implication. Just bad overall 2/10.
You know if less people were racist the sjws would lose a lot of force. You hate black criminals? Then hate on the fact that they are fucking criminals. You hate black rappers? Then hate on the fact that they produce bad music. There is no point in hating a fucking color, hate their acts not how they look from birth.
Ok, so lets say all those statisitcs are true and arent so because nigs are nigs.
Now that I'm aware of my privilege, what am i supposed to do? Do they expect me to go to the line outside the local salvation army and get on my knees? Srsly, what do they expect ppl to do?
>bringing up percent of prisoners
Um because they committed the crimes? Not white people's fault blacks are thugs.
>bring up school
It's proven blacks are dumber. As far as criminal whites getting jobs more often. Does this consider the fact that they could have had lesser crimes than the black criminals? This comic is a joke.
People just prefer their own kind. Shove equality down peoples throats as much as you like but nature remains true and we just prefer our own kind.
Go to China or Africa and your "white privilege" wont get you anywhere.
Perhaps it is just down to being the native/indigenous population that gets you ahead and so it fucking well should.
If minority/equality figures are to be met (hire blacks, hire women etc.) the white person is at a disadvantage.
Let's hot even get started on Jewish privilege.
Or possibly because unlike blacks, whites will conform to justice system rehabilitation programs with more uniformity, and with less passive, and sometimes outwardly aggressive behavior towards authority figures.
What I'm getting at, simply, is that 'John' is more likely than 'Tyrone' to follow court orders, attend court ordered programs, follow probationary guide-lines, and remain out of prison instead of screwing it all up out of spite as Tyrone will because 'court be rayciss'
Counter argument: if whites as a community must take responsibility for past abuse of blacks, by extension, blacks as a community must take responsibility for modern issues in their communities. If there is going to be a "black community" who deserves help based solely on their race then they deserve punishment based on race too.
You can't ask for equal rights without equal expectations and equal responsibilities. That's one of the critical flaws of certain schools of feminism.
Hello white cis male friend, I see you finally saw the light, now all you have to do is help us infiltrate every site and every place in the real world and make every other white see the light you just saw, we will start by censoring their hate speech and sites that allow those also don't forget to help censor their entertainment we can't let them stay home playing their misogynistic games.
That's what they want you to do.
M8 in china I felt rich as fuck and was photographed just for being white.
Westerners have it great in China and they are civilized enough to not be a threat.
