    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?”

    Not according to the crazy radical leftists, they say that minorities can never be racist, after they start quoting these theories they study at college from their professors, as valid reasoning.

    They are referring to institutionalized racism that is endemic in the structure of society versus social racism. If people articulated it better, it would make more sense.


    In fact all of the 'white male' bashing and white privilege stuff is because people aren't speaking on the same page which gets away from the real issues. If there was less anger and shouting and more listening we could actually reduce racism in all its forms.

    That's the ideal way.
    The bashing stuff does not come only from "not speaking on the same page", but the entitlement of things they think they should get based solely by their identity, and the believe that since they're "victim by default", they (minorities) can do bad things to them (majorities), the same way bad things happened to them (minorities).
    if "not speaking on the same page" is dealt with civil dialogue, this craziness will not happen.
    And it has to be two way street, it's a dialogue, that means both parties, has to talk and listen with civility
    I've seen enough hypocrisy, covered with liberal studies reasoning, to justify their ideology.

    I'm so tired of the all the -isms - racism, ageism, sexism, etc. Truth of the matter is as long as there are white men around people will have someone to blame their own personal failings on. I'm glad I'm a white male. I have no crutch to lean on. I have no boogeyman to blame my woes on. I have to face the day and succeed or fail with only myself to blame. I don't engage feminists or racebaiters because I don't want to fall into their victim mentality.

    Rock on whiners.

    I wholeheartedly agree that trying to play the victim is to be frowned upon. I don't generally engage people who are wont to use their victim card to short-circuit debate.

    Yes but in posting this you are also playing the victim card.
    Actually there is a whole scramble to play the victim by white males so white males are not immune to wanting to claim victimhood.

    There are people everywhere claiming victimhood:
    - Christians want to play the victim of same-sex marriages.
    -(mainly white) males advocating rape culture (and who can't get sex from women) want to play the victim of feminists.
    - Trump supporters want to play the victim of poor immigrants
    - We even have it on here, masculine gays who want to play the victim of fem gays (and vice versa)

    Everyone jockeys for victimhood so instead of judging others and shutting them down it's better to look at where you are playing victim in life.

    How so?

    _____ bashing is never really acceptable is it?

    If we can't solve our issues in a civil manner, then little is going to be accomplished accept hurt feelings.
