    White People now apologize for being White?

    When did this become a thing? It seems White liberals are leading the charge in this most bizarre new trend.

    I agree. It's very bizarre. Don't attribute this bizarreness to all white people though. The specific subgroup of white people doing this belong to the socialist breed of white people. They are known for their bizarre behavior. This subgroup of white people have other very strange behaviors/beliefs too. They think they have a right to kill other people and claim that it improves the human race to kill as many of the coming generation as possible. They also think black people are too stupid to compete with white people. Is that bizarre or what? I could keep on going but I think these three examples are enough to demonstrate just how bizarre they are.

    What did Chelsea Handler say that you disagreed with?


    Rosanna Arquette said something a lot of people are going to disagree with, and for varying reasons. Okay. So how to respond to that?

    Like this?


    Yeah, well there’s an easy solution. Just think of it as late late late late late late late late late late late late late late late late term abortion. #MentallyIllhttps://www.breitbart.com/entertainment/2019/08/07/rosanna-arquette-im-sorry-i-was-born-white-and-privileged-it-disgusts-me/ …

    What is the point of apologizing for something she has no control over? She is literally apologizing because she got few breaks based on her looks and skin color.

Some people get more breaks than others. Life happens. They don't need to apologize for that.

    Where did she apologize? Can you give me a quote?

    That's one way to share your IQ.

    I've shared it before several times over the years on TOL.

    Well, it's like the idea that all white people are guilty of slavery. It doesn't matter we weren't the ones participating or having a say in it. It's guilt by association with our ancestors. It's saying we should have controlled what they did in spite of the fact we didn't exist. They assert our guilt is so great we should pay reparations.

    It's completely bizarre and insane. It violates all principle of justice. It even assumes that every white person in the US had ancestors who were slave owners or had ancestors who lived here during those days. That's even a more bizarre assumption as millions of people emigrated here after slavery ended. I know all my ancestors did. They didn't come here until 50 or 60 years after the Civil war, so how could I be held responsible for something that happened before my ancestors even lived here? Yet I'm white and therefore I'm guilty.

    It just proves how insane social justice really is. It has no foundation in reality.

    She talked about white privilege, which is a worthwhile topic, but she didn't apologize for being white.

    There is no white privilege with the "white" part. It's comes across to as apologizing for white privilege is the same as apologizing for being white.

    As for white privilege it is a worth while topic.

    Specifically: she didn't apologize for being white. She acknowledged how white privilege has helped her.

    I agree.

    I haven't forgotten Rosanna Arquette, though. She made a controversial statement about the way she felt, and people suggested she should commit suicide, and not only because there are a lot of trolls on social media, but because white privilege is such a hot button that it frequently brings out the beast in people.

    I have been at TOL for over 16 years.
    Sorry, just giving you a hard time because it seems kind of cringey when people broadcast their IQs. Anyway, back to white privilege.

    Those least likely to see they benefit from white privilege are... white people.

    The Internet is filled with trolls, Internet Tough Guys™, and keyboard commandos.

    Oh? Ok. Haha. To be clear I took a bunch of online IQ tests about 12 years ago and scored between 121 to 142 so my scores were all over the map. IQ is overrated anyway. IMO it doesn't measure true intelligence because "intelligence" is difficult to define. But that is another discussion.
