You’re Not Being “Oppressed”

This is what anyone who claims "reverse racism" will understand once they recognize and educate themselves about white privilege. Readings for Diversity and Social Justice is a phenomenal book that explains the multiple dimensions of oppressions, and the companion text, Teachings for Diversity and Social Justice, explains the theoretical framework of anti-oppressive social justice education.

This Comic Perfectly Explains What White Privilege Is

Greatness is not wrapped in any one color or gender. It is society and all our futures that we short change by not giving everyone the opportunity to shine. This is not just my opinion, it is a lesson from history that we should heed.

Privilege, Yes You Have it

Some of you may believe that gangstalking can safely be ignored, because its not your problem and could not possibly happen to you...! Not true! Some victims were vulnerable people who were randomly chosen to be harassed in order to serve as an example to keep the rest of their neighborhood in line. In short, this could potentially happen to YOU...if you permit gangstalking to continue.

This infuriates me!!! White Christians will get mad if you display "black Jesus" because you're erasing his actual race in order for you to relate to it more. When they're doing the exact same thing!!!! They think Jesus was a good person, therefore he must be white because they can't relate to people of color. It's one of the most blunt examples of white privilege I can think of and it makes me sick!!
