Cracking the Code: Using White Privilege to Right a Wrong

https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...&v=GTvU7uUgjUI

This is an example of why we who are white will never understand what it is like to spend a day experiencing life in the same way as black people in the U.S.

I have been in grocery lines when the cashier has asked a White person to show two valid forms of ID and has checked the bad-check list. I heard nothing that told me this cashier was being racial. On the other hand, what I heard was a Black lady assuming it was racial, and her half-Black sister in law reinforcing the racism.
This was not a very good example of racism. Too many assumptions.
Thanks from excalibur

She didn't ask the 'white' woman for ID or check the bad check book.

caconservative is just a racially biased troll who likes to stir the post.

Frankly, I don't believe he's as dumb as he'd have to be make the statements he makes, nor to advocate/endorse some of the ideas he puts forth.

Mostly, I try to just ignore him. He's obviously a bigot - he's obviously not very well educated nor very well informed beyond his own limited landscape - and he's not very pleasant. All-in-all, I think it's an act to get people upset.

I'm hoping he goes the way of garysher and others.

If there is such as thing as the usual white privilege, then... let assume there is such a thing as constant black victimization?

Keeping this thread on-topic and not going off the rails, did you not feel the black woman in the video was victimized?

Possibly. But without further context and going on her word alone and no input from the cashier, i can't honestly say that there is anything to be drawn from this definitively.

And you're right. I didn't want to take you thread off topic. Your original post did inspire me to start another thread asking politically incorrect, unpopular or difficult questions.
