Yes, that includes being given the presumption of
innocence in matters attributed to their negative and
criminal conduct or behavior.
In essence, white males in America still rule the
roost and they close their ranks for Kavanaugh and short
shrifting a supposed thorough FBI investigation shows that
white males protect their own.
They do this notwithstanding the evidence to the
contrary that they are guilty or when they exhibit conduct
that is shameful, criminal or morally questionable at best.
Herr Trump who, for the present time, sits on the top
of the heap of white entitlement (no charges against him for
all of the accusations of sexual molestation placed against
him and other various and sundry charges of moral failings
and financial skullduggery), also spouts political blather
and lies as cover for males of the same ilk.
According to the recent FBI investigation of charges
brought by Dr. Christine Ford, there was found no further
credible evidence to show that Kavanaugh was the attempted
rapist of Dr. Ford.
Even though the media reports that dozens of persons
who claimed to have corroborative evidence to the contrary
regarding his moral conduct, they were not even interviewed
by the FBI!
So much for an in-depth look at Kavanaugh and the
purported charges given during his Senate judicial committee
The die is cast and Kavanaugh will be sworn in next to
Clarence Thomas, and they can, over a few beers, compare
notes on the similarities of getting onto the highest court
in the land in spite of being accused as being sexual
predators or harassers.
Still confused about white male privileges? Well, for
the uninitiated, I have for your edification a simple
eight-question quiz that you can compare your life
experiences with that of privileged whites and you can see
where you stand in the pecking order of privileges in
You and your date
walk into a toney restaurant, with a reservation, and you
are waiting 30 minutes but Brett Kavanaugh and his wife come
in and are immediately seated, with no reservation. White
You just moved to a new neighborhood and decide to check it
out by doing a slow jog through the area. You stop a few
times to re-tie your shoes and before you know it, two
police cars begin to shadow you until you finally leave the
area. Your white friends at work are incredulous at this
story and say you must be mistaken. White privilege assumed?
You are at the meat counter at the local supermarket. Your
number is 19. They call out 18 and then go to 20. You say,
"Hey, here I am....19!" but the clerk says, too late, he
will call you next. Number 20 is an older white lady who
calls the clerk by his first name. White privileges at work
Your daughter and her crew are at a park, playing
music, picnicking and having a good time. A white lady
nearby comes over and says that they are causing a scene and
would they move on. Yet there are several nearby white
college age crowds doing the same thing. White Privileges
You and your son are waiting in juvenile court on a minor
misdemeanor charge of him jaywalking across a street. The
maximum sentence is $200 and court costs. No record made. A
white kid and his mom appear before you for sentencing on
charges of open beer cans in his car while at a stoplight.
The white judge recognizes the kid as a star footballer and
gives him a suspended sentence and no fines or costs. As for
your son, he is given both court costs and a $200 fine...no
priors. White privilege being used?
You’ve been with your company for six years and have won
three Outstanding Achievement Awards for your sales results.
A juicy promotion has opened up for an assistant district
manager. You apply but are denied. You are shocked but later
learn that the person who won the job is the district
manager's niece who has been on the job for two years, has a
two year degree vs. your MBA...and she has no sales awards.
White privilege showing up?
Your child's white friend, eight year old, Roger, is having
a birthday party and he has invited your child and his two
friends, Rufus and Lamont.
Unknown to you, the pool party starts at 1 p.m. but the
invitations for your child and his two friends states to be
present at 3 p.m.... which is after the pool party portion
is over. Any concern for white privilege here?
You and your wife have signed an offer to purchase a house.
The price agreed upon is $300,000. However the realtor tells
you that another bid was entered and the other person got
the house. You are crushed. You later learn that the other
buyer is a fraternity brother of the seller and he is also
getting the house at $20,000 less. Any white privilege here?
