White Privilege White Apathy White Ignorance
Affects whites and slaves; whites in a positive way; slaves in a negative way.
By Norris Shelton
White Privilege is "racial discrimination." It extends coast-to-coast, affecting all Americans: whites in a positive way: American slaves in a negative way. Whites have the privilege of knowing their true history. American slaves have been denied knowing our true history. White Americans have the privilege of knowing where and how their culture fits into the human race. White Americans have the privilege of being allowed to think culturally. Whites have the privilege of knowing what is best for their culture, and they know how to get what is best for their culture. American slaves have no idea how to think culturally. Not realizing we are a culture, we don’t have a clue what is best for our culture, nor how to get it. Descendants of American slaves, as a people, have never had the privilege of being allowed to think clearly or collectively.
Whites privilege is one of many impediments that stands in the way descendants of American slaves entering the economic battlefield. When ‘privilege’ become ‘apathetic’ and refuse to take a stand against the injustice of racial discrimination that extends from white privilege, white privilege becomes ‘white-impediment.’ In 1965, Dr. King said: "History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the vitriolic words and other violent actions of the bad people… but the appalling silence and indifference of the good people. Our generation will have to repent for not only the words and acts of the children of darkness… but also for the fears and apathy of the children of light."
Personally, I have nothing against "white privilege" or "black apathy." I do however think they should be counterbalanced by "American slave privilege."
