When people don't understand white privilege:

"Once upon a time in America, in order to become a lawyer all you had to do was pass the bar.

Somewhere around 1896, a black man did just that and became the first person of color to practice law legally in the United States. The response of the academic community was to mandate that a bachelor’s degree was required before anyone could pass the bar.

The few people of color who could afford higher education took their new BAs to the their bar exams. When they passed, a new mandate was set forth that only people who’d acquired a law degree could apply to the bar exam.

If you've ever wondered why certain professions are stereotypically dominated by certain people, it's not by accident, it's by design. Deliberate economic prohibitions were placed as obstacles in the path of those seeking lawful, gainful employment. This is colloquially referred to as: moving the goal posts.

Meritocracy is a myth."

“How come all mass shooters turnout to be right-wing?!” : SelfAwarewolves
Not sure the source, but it's a screnshot of a forum. For context, this came out shortly after the New Zealand mosque shooting where 50 people were killed. The text reads:

"We're so fucked. Every single right-of-centre opinion will be associated with mass murder now. He name-dropped EVERY right wing talking point in his autistic manifesto and video. Support for Antifa has already gone up on social media. White identity, Trump, even fucking Pewdiepie all = murder now. This isn't even the first time, why do people keep fucking doing this, giving the left so much ammo?? The left has wone, we are fucking done. I'm going to rope. Fuck this absolute prick cunt double agent faggot for his utter stupidity."

Trump Treats Immigrant Crime Differently
When an undocumented person commits a murder, Trump talks about it incessantly. When, in 2017, a white guy like Stephen Paddock kills 58 people in Las Vegas and wounds 851, Trump has very little to say. See Less

(6) Diana Young - Security asked a group of drunken men to leave a bar...
"Security asked a group of drunken men to leave a bar in IL

One of the men returned with a gun, shooting

Jemel Roberson quickly apprehended the gunman and held him on the ground

police arrived and

shot Jemel Roberson, and killed him

even with people in the bar screaming "he's security, don't shoot, no!"

Jemel Roberson was someone my friends knew

He was twenty six years old

he wanted to be a policeman

".... we’re all just broken because we have no answers," the Rev. Patricia Hill of Purposed Church said. "He was getting ready to train and do all that stuff, so the very people he wanted to be family with, took his life.""

This is the face of a terrorist: White people must understand the damage done by group blame that follows other terror attacks : TrueReddit
Talking about the Austin bomber, who turned out to be a 28 year old

Holy cow. The police chief said "“He does not at all mention anything about terrorism nor does he mention anything about hate, but instead it is the outcry of a very challenged young man, talking about challenges in his personal life,”" - un-fucking-believable. If he was brown, that fucker would never have been considered "challenged"

more of a traditional news story on the bombings:

Former Slaves' Stories of Abraham Lincoln in the South - The Atlantic
"Though there’s no evidence Lincoln actually made any of these incognito visits to the South—and ample documentation to suggest these visits were wholly fictitious—it’s important that many former slaves believed he did. Today, historical debates over emancipation often focus on whether it came from the top down or the bottom up—did Lincoln free the slaves, or did the slaves free themselves? But the stories of Lincoln coming down South suggest many freedpeople didn’t see this as an either/or question.

Did they need Lincoln? Sure. But emancipation wasn’t something Lincoln could just decree from on high. He had to come down South and get his hands dirty. Some even described him as taking on the guise of the trickster popular in black folklore, a sort of Brer Rabbit in a top hat. When former slaves claimed Lincoln had paid them a visit, they weren’t just inserting a beloved president into their story—they were inserting themselves into his story."

The first 8 minutes or so of the first clip is just pictures of hanging bodies.

What My Bike Has Taught Me About White Privilege | A Little More Sauce
I thought I was going to hate this, but the analogy is particularly well suited to the purpose. Perhaps because I've ridden in traffic and know just how dangerous "good, well intentioned drivers" can be - never mind the ones high out of their mind or the ones who actively hate you. --------------------- wealth-income-distribution = Although this guy is talking about race, I think the analogy is perfectly suited to discussing middle class privilege and how anyone middle class or above sees the poor. It's not just about "trying harder" or "working longer", there are active issues that keep you down, unable to work longer, get places you need to go, etc.

Michael Dunn Calls Himself A Victim, Urges Others To Kill More Blacks | LiberalAmerica.org
So sad. This guy and many like him are so ignorant of the real causes of thug behavior. "“This jail is full of blacks and they all act like thugs,” he writes. “This may sound a bit radical, but if more people would arm themselves and kill these fucking idiots when they’re threatening you, eventually they may take the hint and change their behavior.”"

Malcolm X - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In a 1965 conversation with Gordon Parks, two days before his assassination, Malcolm said:
[L]istening to leaders like Nasser, Ben Bella, and Nkrumah awakened me to the dangers of racism. I realized racism isn't just a black and white problem. It's brought bloodbaths to about every nation on earth at one time or another.
Brother, remember the time that white college girl came into the restaurant—the one who wanted to help the [Black] Muslims and the whites get together—and I told her there wasn't a ghost of a chance and she went away crying? Well, I've lived to regret that incident. In many parts of the African continent I saw white students helping black people. Something like this kills a lot of argument. I did many things as a [Black] Muslim that I'm sorry for now. I was a zombie then—like all [Black] Muslims—I was hypnotized, pointed in a certain direction and told to march. Well, I guess a man's entitled to make a fool of himself if he's ready to pay the cost. It cost m

Martin Luther King's legacy is being whittled down and simplified, leaving younger generations knowing little of King's life. Specifically, his anti-poverty and anti-war work that often made him unpopular while he was alive are overlooked by many today.
