Next spring, April 13-16, 2011 to be exact, the annual White Privilege Conference will take place in Bloomington, Minn. A group leftist race-baiters have been holding this conference which will go about accusing white of having not just a disproportionate amount of wealth in the country, but so-called “privileges” exclusive only to whites in the U.S. Your guess is a good as mine as to what they are but apparently they exists because these people say they do.
Read through the entire article and one gets the sense that the rhetoric this conference uses is similar to that of the Ku Klux Klan: white people are special simply because they are white. Of course anyone who is white and poor in this country knows this is complete BS but once again a claque of people spend their time trying to convince poor whites to overlook their economic woes and embrace the fact they have skin. Only this crowd does so through a different point of view.
One woman describe the experience as having her “blinders taken off.” Well, I too hope the persons who attend this conference have their blinders taken off as well. In fact, I’ll volunteer my services to do so. I will be happy to transport them around my county and elsewhere in western Wisconsin and Minnesota so they can witness the white poor, up close and personal in their broken down trailers and farm homes and explain all these special privileges they receive for being white. I’m sure they just don’t know what they are. I guess they’ve been too busy, I don’t know, trying to keep from starving or worrying about unemployment or whether their mine might collapse on them or getting their faces blown off in Iraq or Afghanistan because nobody else wishes to serve in the military. That’s it, they’ve been too busy to figure all this out. There’s got to be a special benefit to being white they’re missing out on and I hope the persons at this conference will go inside their shotgun shacks and explain it to them because I certainly can’t.
