The bugger and scofflaw Jose Antonio Vargas is hosting an upcoming MTV ‘documentary’ entitled White People. It “tackles the hot topic conversation of white privilege head-on in a special presentation borne out of MTV’s Emmy-winning Look Different campaign”. It appears that the formula is to prod some college-aged white kids into humiliating themselves about how they feel about their whiteness followed by a group reeducation session where several of these impressionable young people who’ve spent their entire lives immersed in a culture of white guilt come together to wallow in that guilt collectively and therapeutically.
There isn’t anything particularly surprising about something like this being produced by a cable network. It’s just one of countless examples of the continual deracinating of any kind of white identity that is not firmly rooted in ethnomasochism. What is noteworthy is how it is being received by the plebes. The youtube trailer is currently pulling a 1:4 like-dislike ratio, and the comments appear to be even more lopsided than that.
Scoff at this garbage. When someone brings up white privilege, sardonically ask if that is the privilege of being violently assaulted by a black man (since black-on-white violent crime is nearly 40 times more common than white-on-black violent crime is), or if it is the privilege of being able to pay tens of thousands of dollars in taxes every year to be distributed to non-whites after government bureaucrats have taken their cuts for nothing in return, or if it is the privilege of having to perform better scholastically and in the office to receive the same rewards that NAMs do.
Don’t take a browbeating sitting down, and when someone else does, interject without apology. To the extent that you’re able to, provide that honest conversation about race that the race hustlers putatively desire we all have.
