Why “White Privilege” Is A Liberal Myth

Robert Gehl reports MTV has some New Year’s advice for all you white people.

It’s nothing much, really… just admit you’re a total racist and clean up your act.

The video is titled “2017 Resolutions for White Guys.”

It features several “non-white” actors – and one token white guy – who paint white men as racist, clueless and privileged.

“First off, try to recognize that America was never great for anyone who wasn’t a white guy,” a woman says in the video.

“Can we all just agree that Black Lives Matter isn’t the opposite of all lives matter? Black lives just matter. There’s no need to overcomplicate it,” another woman says.

Also, Blue Lives Matter isn’t a thing,” the white guy adds.

“Learn what mansplaining is and then stop doing it,” a woman says.

“We all love Beyonce and yeah, she’s black, so of course she cares about black issues. I’m talking to you, Fox News,” a man says.

“Feel free to take Kanye West, though. You guys can have him,” a woman adds.

“You know what you did, Kanye,” the man replies.

The dig was clearly in reference to Mr. West’s recent meeting with Donald Trump in New York and the rapper’s praise of the president-elect.

White privilege as they explain it is not accurate, but you tell me if you are getting pulled over, if you are in court, if your getting a bank loan the results seem to be a little better if you are white. It shouldn't be that way.

Bull crap! That's just all part of the myth. Just like the myth all black people can jump and play basketball. Fact: It's easier for minority's to get hired by police and government jobs etc. It's easier for black people and other minorities to get small business loans.

Just because you say it's "fact" doesn't make it so. If you're referring to EO, then no one is finding it easier for a loan, job, etc.

Maybe you're not as qualified as the minority who got the job/loan instead of you.

7:16 here. I know about affirmative action and small business grants and loans through the government but I don't think those programs do much at all for blacks as a whole. In fact they foster distain from people who feel "left out" because they didn't receive a job ECT.
I drove all across the east coast for 3 years with work and found that when I saw a young black male pulled over, the cops were searching the car EVERY time! If I was treated that way as a youth I would be in prison. And that is exactly what is happening today. We have more people in prison per capita than ANY other "civilized" country. We had an economic crisis caused by fraud and market manipulation and NO ONE goes to prison.
Everyone in the public eye is so skilled now at dancing around the issues with fancy non-offensive language but we allow these same, white owned, media outlets like BET to promote gangs, drugs, guns and violence, as well as objectification and disrespect for women to all our youth but especially in black communities. So you have the dual problem of kids growing up saturated with this garbage and police who have also seen it and come to the assumption that young black men are dangerous criminals.
The government and media can not fix this. They work to make the problems worse. We need a change in us as a society. Blacks should be banning together to boycott the publishers of this garbage but the only leadership is media planted bull$#@+era like Al Sharpton. The good ones all get assassinated.
