And the liberal lunacy continues. These people really have no shame. Or intelligence.

Students wear white pins to remind them of white privilege

Some quotes from the zombies.

Quote:
Asked if all white students are privileged, Ida responded “yes,”
Quote:
she notes most people of color already have to live with racism while white people don’t.
Yes, they really are this ignorant.

They sound like the Jews that walked into the gas champers or helped the Nazis.

I bet if Hillary told them to kill themselves to increase diversity, they would do it.

Can someone please explain what exactly causes this kind of mentality among white people? I understand wanting to help poor and disadvantaged people, but by god, so many of these leftist whites for all their talk about Nazi's if they were told there were some gas chambers and they went into them it would help non-white/LGBTQ+ community would happily, and gleefully walk right in all with a smile on their face.

I really don't get this cult-like thinking. Fact is for various reasons someone will be #1 in the world, and regardless of what race it is it will always inevitably amount to a lot of people being exploited, taken advantage of and screwed over. Yeah, it may not be "right", but looking through history different points in time had different races at the top which invariably lead to no less the kinds of things white people did, white people just happened to be the ones that managed to do so at the later points in history.

I am not saying we should ignore or censor our history, but it amazes me how so many want to act as if all the bad things Europeans did was inherently a white thing, when in reality had any other race had the same tech, influence, etc. they would have done the same thing.

It is the result of doing wrong for hundreds of years and never truly doing right by all those who were wronged over that period. It affects generations and not just of those who were wronged.

Would you label it as a psychological disorder?

Surely anyone who feels personal guilt/shame about things that happened hundreds of years before they were even born has a few screws loose, no?

Well, if we're going that route than shouldn't those in the middle east be getting the most flack? It was middle eastern people that started the very concept of what we know as an Empire and even before Islam were the ones to start subjugating and enslaving those both at home and abroad. Even today they largely act little different, and sure as HELL aren't doing anything to wright the wrongs of their past.

Are Middle Eastern people taking actions similar to those in the OP's post? You asked was why people were taking such measures. I simply offered an answer. Different people are affected in different ways.

Slavery has been around virtually from the beginning of time. I don't know what Middle Eastern people are doing and it isnt a country, but rather an entire region made up of different ethnic groups and religions.
