i have absolutely no problem with someone saying white pride just like i have no problem with brown pride or black pride. i think people is confusing the word pride with the word power. if cain would have brown power tattoo'd across his chest it would change the tone completely.

I hate the term 'check your privilege'. We are all fucking humans, why the fuck should I check my privilege?



I see the phrase used as a weapon far too often, but I think it's important to recognize when hardship's more than a challenge.

Bear in mind I'm not advocating bandaid programs like affirmative action, not at all - I think a solution is in increased public safety and education across the board. How that solution's funded and staffed is a ridiculously difficult question, one I'm not going begin to try to answer here since we're already way off the reservation.

That kinda still sounds like I'm supposed to feel bad about my privilege. Why the fuck should I take into account that there are people less lucky than me? Or that I'm more lucky? I only get to experience one life through one body and its all relative, I'm not gonna waste one second thinking about those more or less fortunate than me and whether it's due to luck or not.

Again, I say check your privilege is the excuse of those who need to excuse their adequacy/inadequacy



How you feel is your choice, right; my intent isn't to impose guilt - which in this context usually ends with slacktivist "awareness."

No, I simply disagree with the absolute tone of the last statement. It's certainly *an* excuse, but not always. I use it when determining who I vote for, what programs I support - whether the focus is on fixing a broken system or in obfuscation by a feckless, wasteful bureaucracy.

I'd tell her to feck off if she tried some white pride world wide BS in a promotion I was running.
