What is 'Privilege,' Really?

Post by PNN »

What is Privilege????

1) Privilege is wearing $200 sneakers when you’ve never had a job.

2) Privilege is wearing $300 Beats headphones while living on public assistance.

3) Privilege is having a Smartphone with a Data plan, which you receive no bill for.

4) Privilege is living in public subsidized housing where you don’t have a utility or phone bill and where rising property taxes, rents and energy costs have absolutely no effect on the amount of food you can put on your table, which is largely covered by Government Food Stamps.

5) Privilege is having free health insurance for you and your family that's paid for by working taxpayers who often can't afford proper health coverage for their own families.

6) Privilege is having multiple national organizations promoting and protecting just your race alone -- that are subsidized by federal tax dollars.

7) Privilege is having access to a national college fund that supports only one race.

8) Privilege is having a television network that supports only one race.

9) Privilege is having most of the media news networks refuse to cover incidents wherein one race (one-eighth of the population) commits 50% of the crimes.

10) Privilege is the ability to go march against, and protest against anything that triggers you, without worrying about calling off from work and the consequences that accompany such.

11) Privilege is having as many children as you want, regardless of your employment status, and be able to send them off to daycare or pre-school you don’t pay for.

12) Privilege is being able to vote in many states without showing a driver's license, voter ID card or other credentials -- just because your race claims they should be exempt from such requirements.

13) Privilege is being able to riot, loot, commit arson and tear down historic monuments without consequences -- just because you don't like folks such as Columbus, U.S. Grant or even Lincoln.

14) Privilege is being able to get into almost any college of your choosing based on your race, not your grades or merit.

15) Privilege is having most of your life paid for by the working men and women who DO HAVE TO DEAL WITH RISING TAXES AND COSTS! You know, those you now call “PRIVILEGED.”

Somewhere in a classroom darkly..........

"Ok children. today we will continue our lesson on privilege. I want all of you first to write a sentence using the word privilege in a sentence."

Johnny:" It was a privilege to watch President Trump's uplifting speech on TV last night."

Teacher, politely..."No, no Johnny we don't use privilege in that manner."

Susie: "I was privileged to see President Trump's plane fly over our house."

Teacher, getting a bit rattled. She turns to one of the black children in her class. Smiling a serpentine smile....

"Now Joshua, perhaps you can tell the rest of the class what privilege really means" as she adjusts her Che Guivera scarf.

"Yes ma'am" replies Joshua.

"Our class will have the privilege of seeing you get arrested for being at the BLM protest and screaming profanities at the National Guard. My dad recognized you from the news video. Plus you have been stealing all kinds of stuff from the school cafeteria. Mr. Norris taught us how to place cameras where no one else could see them."

The kids start to laugh and clap as the teacher goes first completely pale, then red faced.

One of them looks outside to see Federal agents walking to the school entrance. What a privilege! he thought. B-) :D
