Democrats are infamously supportive of the notion that anyone who is not white is magically barred from certain privileges. This is a false narrative which the left has purposefully perpetrated for the sake of controlling people, maintaining political power, and manipulating certain individuals into thinking that only Democrats can improve their lives.
When values such as grit and hard work are mentioned, the left-wing rapidly cries racism and essentially declares that people of color are not in control of their own lives. As sad as this ideology may be, it’s something which many Americans have deeply internalized.
Democrats continue to perpetuate this false narrative today and it came up during last night’s second primary debate. While speaking, candidate Kirsten Gillibrand stated that she can connect with white women who voted for Trump, as documented by Fox News. Moreover, Gillibrand stated that she wants to speak with white female Trump voters about “white privilege.”
A Closer Look at Gillibrand’s Statements
During the second night of the second primary debate, Gillibrand was asked a question about the steps she would employ to better the quality of race relations within the United States. At this point, Gillibrand began talking about white women who voted for President Trump and so-called white privilege.
In Gillibrand’s own words:
“I think as a white woman of privilege who is a U.S. senator running for president of the United States, it is also my responsibility to lift up those voices that aren’t being listened to. I can talk to those white women in the suburbs who voted for Trump and explain what white privilege actually is. When their son is walking down the street with a bag of M&Ms in his pocket, wearing a hoodie, his whiteness is what protects him from not being shot.”
What is True Privilege in America?
Democrats have warped the true idea of privilege in America because it’s politically beneficial for them to make blatant statements about so-called white privilege and how oppressed they believe racial minorities are.
The truth of the matter is that real privilege has always rested in economics. Individuals of any race who are financially well-off are in a much better position than their poorer counterparts. There are wealthy and poor people of all races, but this isn’t something which Democrats will discuss or shed light on.
Telling entire groups of people that the color of their skin automatically makes them underprivileged and oppressed is dreadfully condescending and untrue. As Americans, we live in a capitalist society where all people, regardless of their race, have the ability to make smart choices and work their way up, regardless of where they started. When it’s all said and done, the quality of an individual’s life boils down to decisions, not race.
