3 Concerning Prejudice Trends Toward White Americans | The Daily Bell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 14, 2018

You don’t have to play by the rules of the corrupt politicians, manipulative media, and brainwashed peers.

By Joe Jarvis

In no way does this discussion minimize prejudice and racism others have and still face. Just because this article highlights an often overlooked type of prejudice does not mean we think other kinds don’t exist.

We have discussed how the war on drugs was designed to empower the government to crack down on certain groups, black people included, without the policy having to be explicitly racist. We have also discussed overlooked ways women are still not treated equally–and we aren’t talking about the “pay gap.”

But today we are talking about prejudice against white people, justified by what “our” ancestors did. Others blame their racism on white “micro-aggressions,” which are little bits of subtle racism white people let slip.

The media has given undue attention to white supremacist groups lately, who should be ignored. They are a tiny fraction of the population, and the media only helps to amplify their racist voices. They should not be given a platform. The media exaggerates their presence for ratings or to sell a false narrative.

Even people who have never been or done anything racist are met with prejudice because they look like racists from the past or present. And that is a great irony.

1. Google: No Room for White Cis Straight Men… Unless You’ve Been Abused

If you’re a white man who wants to work for Google, you better be gay or trans-something. Otherwise, their racist, sexist, and all around prejudiced practices will shun you.

Oh, unless you were abused. Then you’re cool. Does abuse at the hands of the company count?…

2. No Whites Allowed Retreats, Clubs, and “Safe Spaces”

Vice did a segment on an all black women’s retreat, no whites allowed.

This should absolutely be legal. Businesses should be allowed to discriminate however they want. Bakers shouldn’t be forced to bake cakes for gay couples if they don’t want to.

But just because businesses should be able to deny customers doesn’t make it right. It’s not too long ago that black people were not allowed in certain restaurants, and had to use segregated bathrooms, schools, and even water fountains.

Some people might see this as a reason to now discriminate against whites as a sort of, “how do you like it?” But really it is all the more reason to leave that prejudice behind…

3. Racist Propaganda.

Last year I wrote a piece about the movie Get Out. The movie exploits a common problem that still exists. There are still subtle ways that white people act differently towards black people. A lot of white people can’t help but mention race in the presence of a black person.

I was with my friend earlier in the day before seeing Get Out. A white girl-scout mom mentioned that she wasn’t surprised my friend picked shortbread cookies because people of his race tend to prefer them. This, fist bumps instead of handshakes, and saying things like “my man,” or going out of your way to mention black celebrities that you enjoy, is what people call “micro-aggressions.”

I would argue that these are actually clumsy attempts by white people to relate. The media, Hollywood, and the government put white people on edge and widen any actual minute divide between races. Because we hear so often how terrible we are for being white, there is a desire to prove it’s not true!…

If there is one group that deserves prejudice, it is politicians. They have chosen their positions! And with their power, they manipulate the population to turn on each other. But individuals have the power to choose to opt out their game and say I won’t be apart of your destruction.

You don’t have to play by the rules of the corrupt politicians, manipulative media, and brainwashed peers.

Be seeing you
