Kirsters Baish| One conservative black commentator just demolished the claim that “white privilege” exists today when he had conversation with a liberal. Jesse Lee Peterson asked the woman to prove that white privilege exists in America today. If the liberal claim that white privilege exists holds true, then it should have been easy for her to give him just one example of white privilege in modern day America.
She could barely articulate a sentence, let alone give him a clear example. Take a look for yourself:
Peterson questioned his guest, “Does white privilege exist?”
“Absolutely,” she answered.
“And where’s the proof of that?” he asked her.
“All around!” she responded. “For black people, white privilege is something to leverage,” she went on. She would not explain what it meant, however.
Peterson wanted a definition, however. He insisted, “What is it, though? I don’t see it anywhere. What is it?”
Apparently Peterson’s question was so difficult that his guest wasn’t even able to remember how to speak.
“Wh-wha-huh? What? Huh?” she mumbled.
Peterson clarified, “What is it? For people like me who don’t see it …”
“How do you not see white privilege?” the liberal went on. She looked like she had no idea what he was saying.
“Because it doesn’t exist,” Peterson pushed.
“Yes it does!” she insisted.
“So what is it, exactly?” the Peterson asked again.
“I believe white privilege, er, is the ability just to be free and white, and not have the same type of social-economic and social ills as black people have to deal with,” the liberal claimed, once again, not backing up her opinion with any evidence.
“There’s no white racial profiling. White people don’t get pulled over by the cops just because they’re white. Um … they have the ability … to, um … you know, show emotion and love to their sons without being emasculated,” she went on. She couldn’t seem to answer the question.
Conservative Tribune writes of the encounter:
…When given a wide-open chance to explain white privilege, the guest could only think of tired examples like alleged mistreatment of black Americans by police, and a bizarre answer about “showing emotion.”
Even her boilerplate answer about police targeting black people has been shown to be false. The facts show that black citizens are not targeted disproportionately by cops — and actually, police officers are less likely to use force against black citizens than other races.
“When adjusting for crime, we find no systematic evidence of anti-Black disparities in fatal shootings, fatal shootings of unarmed citizens, or fatal shootings involving misidentification of harmless objects,” a major university study recently found, as The Western Journal reported last month.
The Wall Street Journal wrote that “Officers’ use of lethal force following an arrest for a violent felony is more than twice the rate for white as for black arrestees, according to one study.” This basically disproved her claim of white privilege.
“Another study showed that officers were three times less likely to shoot unarmed black suspects than unarmed whites,” The Journal also reported.
“Not only are blacks not more likely to be fired upon by police than whites in tense moments, the study found that, if anything, they are less likely to be shot at,” that article went on. Prof. Roland G. Fryer Jr. of Harvard University conducted the study, and he, himself, is black.
There is no such thing as “white privilege” in America, and this liberal just proved it.
