White Guy = Fall Guy

*White-guy privilege is real: the luxury of being blamed and responsible for every bad thing that you didn’t do.

 

*As a black male, I can do no wrong. I can say what I want and people either move out of my way or keep quiet out of fear of being called racist. They’ll even try to defend me when I’m wrong.

 

*As a white guy, however, you don’t have any leeway. If you disagree with someone, you’re being a bigot; if you don’t like a person of color, you’re a racist, even when that person of color is an asshole that no one likes; If you try to defend yourself from attack, then it’s automatically a manifestation of misogyny, white-privilege, and patriarchy.

 

*As a black male, I can make rap music about bitches and hoes, selling drugs, and even killing people and millions of white kids and urban youth will sing my lyrics in chorus.

 

*As a white male, you’re the reason why blacks have to live that life and commit those crimes.

 

*As a white male, you may not be statistically feared as a person walking down the street, but when the women and the brown-skinned people decide they’ve been wronged again (which is like every-hour on the hour), guess who gets center-stage in the blame-game?

 

*I say these things because throughout my life I’ve noticed that you can’t defend yourselves and stand up to such bullshit, even if the western-world and democracy has created some really cool shit, capitalism included, at the hands of white men. We know that scientifically the color of our skin and our phenotype is the only difference when it comes to ethnicity, yet we still use white-men as the rag to clean up the mess we’ve made. And when it’s all said and done, and we’ve washed our hands of the dirty ordeal, we throw you guys away.
