How convenient! Liberals who believe in racial self-flagellation now have a helpful new meme to tell everyone just how despicable they are. The list, called "10 Ways You Can Actively Reject Your White Privilege," is absolutely hilarious.
1. Take up minimal space during anti-racism dialogues and protests.
2. Stop contributing to gentrification and calling it “urban development.”
There's much to laugh about in this list, but let's just notice a few items. First, how absolutely ridiculous to tell white people not to physically take up too much space at an anti-racism rally. Isn't that fat-shaming overweight white people by telling them they simply aren't wanted as allies in this fight? Also, #4 advises us NOT to invite people of color to the table just for the sake of being "diverse" -- but does this extend to all of the racial quotas in hiring and university admissions policies? (If not, why not?) #5 is equally amusing, because you're damned if you do and damned if you don't ask a "person of color" what something confusing means. God forbid you try to explain it yourself and end up being accused of "whitesplaining." But the best one, obviously, is the last. If you're a racist no matter what, then why go to all the effort?
But if you look at the meme carefully, you'll notice a white arm up in the air making a "black power" fist.
What sort of cultural appropriation is going on in this meme? Well, I guess it just shows we have a LOT of work to do if the "white privilege" know-it-alls can let something egregious like that slip right by. Perhaps the next meme that needs to be made is: "10 Ways You Can Actively Reject Your White Privilege while Making White Privilege Memes?"
