She should get a DNA test.

Most people in the US could easily test 1/2% or so of some minority and that's all that is needed I suppose.

All it would take is one non-white relative from around the time the declaration of independence.

She has a moral obligation to kill herself. Virtue signaling by adopting a bunch of black kids (e.g., Angelina Jolie) would not be enough. The mandate of social justice demands her death.

Personally, I think it is more important for one's self esteem to accomplish something by one's own efforts than to be just 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.)
Normal middle class people aren't typically concerned with white guilt type issues. Most of this stuff we see in the media is horse crap. I never see any of this crazy behavior outside of fringe groups on the Internet and stuff you see in the media. Those types of things are from a very tiny tiny groups of people with loud voices.

Again, nothing I see around me in my day to day life matches the stuff I see on the internet and the media. It's all just click bait and fear mongering for ratings.

Lol, that ratio on her twitter post shows that whatever her expected reaction was...... was not!

Most people are dragging her for people a typical spineless virtue signally white liberal.

Minorities see through that crap, and other white people just think you're an idiot.

It's not as isolated as you might think though. Self-hate is measurable.

Amongst the entire population of white people, self-identifying "white liberals" were THE ONLY GROUP that showed a marked preference and outward feelings of warmth toward "other" people. And had less positive feelings toward "their own." This subset was the ONLY measured group that thsi pattern emerged.

All others - minorities, white conservatives and white moderates...everyone has a general good impression of "their own people."


But white liberals? You know, that white left that is just so incredibly insufferable and LOUD and controls the levers of media? Bona fide self-haters and ethno-masochists.

….or like in Elizabeth warren's case, family lore and a DNA test showing potentially 1/1024th minority DNA is enough to claim minority status and affirmative action benefits, lol.

My father's policy was that he would pay for our education but we had to take the first two years of ROTC. We didn't have to make the military a career but if offered a reserve contract, we had to take it. The thing was that as priv members of society, it was our responsibility that if the government called, we had to be ready to respond.


HENCE, if she is upset that she is privileged, she should live up to the responsibility and be something good.

I read on here all the time how celebrities' opinions are nonsense and no one should pay attention to them.

Yet here they are, quoted on C-D on a daily basis.

If you want to ignore something, you don't go talking about it. Incessantly.

Amazing the self-loathing of the American left. Come to think of it, if I embraced liberal principles, I'd loathe myself as well-so maybe not as cra-cra as it seems. These people really do need professional help.
