Things shared on Jan. 13ths

The great lie of privilege theory is dividing the world between the privileged and the oppressed.

Under most systems, there are three groups:

1 The privileged who have special rights.

2 The citizens who have common rights.

3 The exploited who have few or no rights.

When we talk about apartheid societies, we're not talking about the privileged and the oppressed. We're talking about those who have full rights as a citizen and those who do not.


Race reductionists love to mock the metaphor of not seeing race. They forget that until the invention of white people, no one saw race, and don't grasp that anyone who truly believes race is a social construct sees skin color, not race.


When talking about sexism at the workplace, remember:

1 Women comprise 47 percent of the total U.S. labor force.

2 Women account for 51.5 percent of all workers in high-paying management, professional, and related occupations.


"Google’s overall workforce is 69 percent male and 56 percent white"

The US is 63% non-Hispanic white. By identitarian logic, this proves Google discriminates against women and white people.
