“What do you mean I’m privileged? I know a lot of minorities who have a lot more than I do.”
Do we give too much “space” and importance to minorities?
Today, the only things we read and hear about every day is this outcry about women rights, native Canadian and Americans rights, LGBT rights, Muslims rights and so on and so on, all these people blaming the White Straight Man for their misery.
First, let me set the record straight:
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
My position is quite simple: All men, male and female, whatever their race or color are born equals.
This being said, my question is:
What’s wrong with the Straight White Man, male and female?
The past five decades have not been very kind to the white straight man, male and female. Until the 1960s, the white straight man comfortably sat unchallenged atop the cultural and economic pyramid. He did not have to deal with all these disgruntled people and minorities that we read about and hear complaining every day about their despair and misery.
And then the Straight White Man world exploded.
Today, like it or not, disgruntled people and minorities are everywhere, complaining, blaming and accusing the White Straight Man, male and female about anything and everything.
If the White Straight Man does not agree with their condition, their way of life, their vision of the future, he is conveniently labeled as a racist, homophobic, misogynist individual and personality.
Today, the White Straight Man, male and female, being guilty as charged and condemned without a fair trial, lynched on the public place, is no longer included in anything and no longer part of the conversation. His right to speak does no longer exist.
Freedom of speech for the White Straight Man no longer exist
Unsuccessful, disgruntled, frustrated, depraved people of every minorities confronted with the power structure are now challenging every laws and institutions that they wrongly believe that are confining them to traditional roles in the private sphere.
Instead of empowering themselves by doing what would right to do, sticking to their guns, unsuccessful, disgruntled, frustrated, depraved people of every minorities are now questioning traditional conceptions of gender and sexuality.
Don’t talk to me about privilege.
All these so-called “rights movements” that we see today, instead of promoting and building a fairer, more diverse society and rectifying all possible wrongs that may have happened in the past are only successful in creating more opposition, more animosity and more violence as a direct assault on the well-established moral values of a world global silent community that believe in a better world and rightfully condemned all immoral values.
Today grievance defined the targets of the frustrated minorities. They battle against liberal academics and politicians by stressing multiculturalism and celebrating the contribution of minorities while distorting and minimizing the achievements of white men.
As for the White Straight Man, man and female, they silently fume about companies and schools giving preference to less-qualified people and minorities in an effort to achieve greater diversity.
It is now time to fight back
For the White Straight Man, male and female, it is time to react, it is time to fight back. We are told that we live in a democracy, where everyone has the same rights, the same opportunities. Hello!
We now live in a democracy where the White Straight Man no longer benefit of the Freedom of Speech right. We now live in a democracy where the White Straight Man, to get a job, shall indicate on his or her résumé that he or she is part of a minority group or a member of the LGBT community.
Here is my take on this:
We do live in a democracy, where everyone has the same opportunities I do and we need to move on. If the fact that you are a woman, black or gay is what defines you, you definitely have a problem, not me.
Talking about privilege only further divides people.
