When Your Privilege Is Whiter Than Top-Shelf Cocaine, This Happens



It was at this point that Bernice was double-teamed by the “Well, Actually” Whitesplaining Duo.

Wintrich, who clearly does not give a fuck about anything Martin Luther King Jr. had to say or teach (again, he gave a speech titled “It’s OK to be white”), decided that he needed to tag himself in to explain to Bernice King what her father really meant in his most famous speech, “I Have a Dream.”
-----------
How white do you and your privilege have to be for you to get on Al Gore’s internet and correct King’s daughter about what her father meant?

Whiter than chalk? Whiter than Casper the Friendly Ghost? Whiter than the purest booger sugar that has not been stepped on? Whiter than square dancing? Whiter than clapping on the ones and threes? Whiter than the Ku Klux Klan? Whiter than white supremacy?

You get my point.

Neither one of these white dudes truly gives a fuck about Martin Luther King Jr.’s message. They simply want to invoke his name as a means of trying to silence black people who call them out for their privilege and supremacy. That’s usually how it works for people like this.
