I'm so tired and bored of the "woke" crowd. I mean just be yourself. Stop the self-flagellating. It's always usually rich upper crust hyper-liberal white guilt having idiots pulling this number.

Joe blow the plumber is busting is ass to feed his family and pay his bills and working to try and maybe, just maybe take a vacation this year isn't got time for this kind of self pity nonsense.

Note, that statement applies to anyone, not just white people.

I’m sorry I was born white and privileged. It disgusts me. And I feel so much shame,” the Pulp Fiction actor said on Wednesday.

And yet many white liberals stridently claim that white self loathing and guilt doesnt exist. They call it "self awareness" or currently being "woke".

This whole "I hate myself because I'm white" is such a farce. Talk about humble bragging.

Anyone who actually knows someone who loathes themselves will back me up here - it certainly doesn't look like this. "I hate me, so don't you just looooooovvvvee me?" is not what self-loathing looks like.

I do know a lot of people who work toward diversity and inclusion, and they don't sound all silly about the whole thing. They're just working to include.

Yeah, let’s all blame ourselves and make excuses for how/what we we were born as in order to make others feel better about us. That makes a whole lot of sense, right❓

It was approved in 2016, but a judge overturned the law in 2018.

Couldn't she just self-identify as a black woman? It's all the rage these days.

Fame is a powerful addiction. When it wanes and they become an old has been like this lady and Meathead (among others ).they try to become hip and relevant again. So they use social media to become woke and look like they actually care.

Meanwhile they continue to live in a gated mansion in a Lily white neighborhood and don't financially support any of the causes they are supposed to be so concerned about.

I am just wondering how many people who are white and were NOT born to affluent parents are sorry that they have risen in the world compared to their parents. In other words, I wonder if being born white is responsible for people feeling shame for being "white and affluent" as much as being born rich is? Personally, I think it is more important for one's self esteem to accomplish something by one's own efforts than to be simply given things.

I am white, and I am not one bit ashamed that I am part of the middle class because I achieved that on my own without any help from my parents. (However, that being said, I do feel some shame for what the "white man" has done to people who were in this country before they were. I don't, however, feel any guilt for slavery because, as far as I know, none of my ancestors owned any slaves.)
