White privilege, hegemony and power

Postby ed » Thu Mar 08, 2018 10:28 pm

For a moment let us assume all the SJW defined characteristics of whiteness are true.

Would then the proper response be to be afraid. To be VERY afraid?

It is sorta like the loons that did those videos about the WTC conspiracy. They conjured up this enormous conspiracy that killed thousands and involved thousands. The sniff test was that they were alive.

Same here. If the allegations were true, well, we would all be speaking in the past pluperfect when discussing it.

Topic is now closed.

Closed already?

As I may have told you, I grew up in the so-called East Village. Of course I was hip. It was simply part of the local culture. Of course I wasn't overwhelmingly aware of being hip, any more than a fish is aware of being wet.

But when I got out into the larger world I discovered I was hipper than shit. It was very enjoyable in a way. But one day I realized that hipness is a form of patriarchal hegemony.

In consequence I have utterly repudiated hipness, in spite of being gay.

So every time you groan when I make some reference to Myron Cohen at the Nevele or whatever, at least you will you will understand.

I happen to very much like Myron.

Can I explain something to you?

OK.

My family is Roman Catholic. My mom is a very open minded person and she believed that to progress in life you have to be able to live with others of different faiths and backgrounds and so on. To accomplish this I went to public school whereas every other kid on my block went to a parochial school.

Every kid in my class, from Kindergarten thru the 8th grade was fucking jewish. Every one.

The Law of Unintended Consequences writ large. Far from being a broad minded egalitarian sorta guy, I was made Jewish. But then again, a lot of my liberal tendencies came from there I think.

So, Abdul, my acculturation was eastern European Jewish. In grad school my closest fiends thought I was Jewish to the point of disapproving at my buying a christmas tree. (Ed!! WTF??? Why are you doing that, You're Jewish!!!)

You see now?

I sorta figured it had to be something like that when you told me you went to Brooklyn Tech, which as everyone knows is the Bronx Science High of Brooklyn. :p

Nope. Not really Italian.

The NYC one drop rule only works if at some point your ancestors were Italian in New York (or maybe Jersey or Philly).

You have liberal tendencies? :D

Seriously I am sure you do... I think we explored that in a thread here once, where people posted opinions they held that contrasted with their usual pigeonhole.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

I really don't give a shit about what people do on principle. It is less showy than liberal virtue signalling but it ends up in the same place, often. Gay marriage, feminist crap, equal pay and all that.

My problem begins when you tell me that you know what is better for me than I do.

BTW .. ping Bruce ... I am aghast at the concept of MSDS. Look it up. Talk about over regulation.
