I would say it's not just straight white males, but any straight appearing white male. I'd love to have one of these social justice morons get in my face, start haranguing me for being a white male. Play the, hey I'm bisexual and "oppressed," so leave me the fuck alone card. Not that I believe in that shit, but I'll play by their rules.
http://heatst.com/culture-wars/as-a-black-woman-i-think-white-male-bashing-is-dangerous/This phenomenon — white male bashing — seems to be on the rise. Forty years since the end of the civil rights movement, concepts of race and ethnicity have evolved, our attitudes have shifted: it’s no longer acceptable to make jokes about women, mental ability or fatness. No gay jokes, no black jokes. The only demographic that has escaped this trend — being the only “non-minority” group, and therefore de facto oppressor in Western society — and for whom it’s okay to spit on if you’d like is the straight, able white man.
Nowadays, we see countless examples of white folks (mostly male) being degraded on television and in commercials, or being told to “shut up” in online conversations simply because they’re white. The Daily Show host Trevor Noah has made it its credo: take a social issue, throw in a couple of knowing jabs at racial clichés, finish on a joke about white people. The whole thing often comes across as deliberate race-baiting. Recently, he even managed to take a story about Google’s robotics division and shoehorn the words “fuck white people, imma right?”
