The hysteria over a white privilege hysteria campaign only strengthens the message.

DU has posted about the "Un-fair campaign" from the Univ. of Minnesota in Duluth before, and I first learned about it thru some wingnut's examiner.com blog.
Anyway the Un-fair campaign put out this provocative 30-second ad:
So far with 358 likes and 5,296 dislikes on youtube with the top comment being:
The subtext of this video seems to be that every White person naturally has this 'White privilege', from birth, just by their virtue of being White.
If that's the case how are they planning to eradicate this 'privilege'?
If every White person has 'privilege' and it is inherent, then the only way of eradicating White privilege would be to eradicate WHITE PEOPLE.
This video is in reality promoting GENOCIDE
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.
...without addressing a SINGLE point made in the video.
The Duluth News-Tribune has been covering the controversy (started by this video being embedded on Glenn Beck's The Blaze, and reported "Un-Fair Campaign's partner UMD calls new video campaign 'divisive'" that quoted the university chancellor Lynn Black: "We’re still very much committed to the goals of the campaign and to the foundation the campaign is built on. We do not support these PSAs in large part because instead of encouraging dialogue, it seems like they have become more divisive." Uhh, is she CAVING or what?
Furthermore, the DNT published this photo today:
(Source: "Duluth Un-Fair billboard defaced with racial slur")
The article w/the photo above quoted an NAACP executive claiming that "naggers" was a variant of that other certain word. In fact, in 2007 an episode of South Park "With Apologies to Jesse Jackson" depicted one of the characters answering a Wheel of Fortune puzzle with the N-word (when it was really "naggers"). Video clip is here.
Look at the reaction to the Unfair campaign online...if you click on the chart icon next to the view count in the youtube video you'll notice that the right wing sites like The Blaze, Gateway Pundit, and Campus Reform all linked to this video to trash the campaign. Doesn't the hysterical reaction only illustrate privilege instead of debunk it?
Oh yeah, remember the controversy over the soon-to-be-charged-with-contempt atty. general Eric Holder calling the US a "nation of cowards" in race relations? The fact there was even controversy and every sheeple started bawling and howling...well?
