A white leftist friend keep mentioning that he has privileges in almost every conversation

As if we didn’t know. I wonder why

by Anonymousreply 13September 16, 2023 6:32 PM

Just parroting what is heard on liberal news/opinion sites. Just like MAGA/fascists repeat what they hear on their opinion sites like Fox, Newsmax, etc.

Why they do it is probably just a symptom of a mental issue.

Does he work for Turner Classic Movies?

He’s relying on his privilege to be able to say it so often. He needs to check it.

I wouldn't trust any white person who does not recognize their undeniable privilege.

In acknowledging our priveledge and being appreciative of our gifts, we are making room in our lives for more blessings

If he has children, go up to one of them if they would like to learn a new phrase. Then say the words "elitist prig" to him/her. Then say "that is what your daddy is". Then when your now-enraged friend confronts you, tell him to watch a lot of Dame Edith Evans films so when he says things like "oh, we don't watch television" they will have the appropriate superior tone.

Well it would be a waste of privilege to not acknowledge it. But many white men put up with plenty of the same shit the other folk do. A few million dollars will bestow privilege on a person of any color.

Tiresome cunt.

Sounds like a Lear Jet Liberal who wants all the migrants to flow into America… just as long as they’re not in the Hamptons or Aspen.

It's one thing to acknowledge, check and appreciate your privilege.

It's another thing to performatively telegraph that acknowledgment.

Although that's most of it
