Black Privilege…Can We Talk?

If White Privilege is a thing and “Black Disadvantage” a fact why do all these white women keep pretending that they’re black?

Jessica Krug won't teach at George Washington University this semester

That’s easy; because over time being black, or indeed any “person of color” in America, has evolved from being a distinct disadvantage to being an advantage in many lines of endeavor – especially academia (and politics: I’m talking to you Elizabeth). Current case in point: Jessica Krug, George Washington University African history professor who teaches introductory-level history and advanced courses on African studies. I would like to see a syllabus for Jessica’s “introductory-level history” class; I’m certain that “critical race theory” and anti-Western materials are front and center.

Jessica Krug’s colleagues said they “are shocked and appalled” by her lying about her identity.

“She has betrayed the trust of countless current and former students, fellow scholars of Africana Studies, colleagues in our department and throughout the historical discipline…

“The discipline of history is concerned with truth telling about the past,” the statement said.NYPost 

I would suggest that if “the discipline of history” had been concerned with “truth telling about the past” rather than casting it as anti-white, anti-Christian propaganda we might not be enduring the nightly “antics” of progressive morons burning and looting cities because “Black Lives Matter” and “Defund the Police!”.

For her part, Jessica – a white Jewish woman raised in suburban Kansas City – has confessed her crime and suggested she be cancelled:

“I have not only claimed these identities as my own when I had absolutely no right to do so — when doing so is the very epitome of violence, of thievery and appropriation, of the myriad ways in which non-Black people continue to use and abuse Black identities and cultures…

I have built my life on a violent anti-Black lie, and I have lied in every breath I have taken. I should absolutely be cancelled.”

The Left’s solution to controversy: just cancel it.

Unfortunately these clowns can’t differentiate between the “violence” of “cultural appropriation” like Halloween/taco/sushi night

and, well, real violence like rioting, looting and property damage, running people over and shooting.

PJMedia notes:

Ironically, cases like Rachel Dolezal and Jessica Krug suggest that white people can gain prestige, notoreity (sic), and job opportunities by pretending to be black. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) appears to have capitalized on a false Native American (specifically Cherokee) identity as well.

These situations suggest that white people have incentives to identify with some form of racial minority. To some degree, white Americans can get ahead by becoming “trans-racial.”

All of which suggests to me that we may well be past the need for reparations.

Uh huh, ain’t that always been the way?
