‘White Guys: We Suck and We’re Sorry': Glenn reacts to bizarre new video that apologizes for years of white privilege

“White Guys: We suck And We’re Sorry.” That is the title of a new 2-minute video written and produced by Stephen Parkhurst, who gained some notoriety for a similarly themed video he created last year entitled “Millennials: We Suck And We’re Sorry.” According to the video’s YouTube description, it is time for “straight white dudes” to apologize. “It’s not that we’re against inequality,” the description claims. “We just can’t relate to it.”

Check out the video below (WARNING: While it may feel like you are watching a Saturday Night Live skit, alas, you are not – this is real):

Glenn came across the video last night, and he immediately got to writing a monologue in response. On radio this morning, Glenn questioned what exactly he is supposed to apologize for. Is being born a certain way now a crime? Are all white men really as evil as the clip suggests? Finally, is apologizing for the actions of those who came before us the new ‘status quo’ in the collectivist society progressives are fighting so hard for?

“I don’t even know what I’m supposed to apologize for,” Glenn said. “Being born a certain way? Are you going to apologize for being born black? Are you going to apologize for being born Hispanic? I’m not going to apologize for being born white, and I’m not going to apologize for being born a male.”

“My impression was that the entire movement was supposed about how you’re not supposed to apologize for the way were you born,” Stu added. “And yet here we are apologizing for the way we were born.”

Below is a rough transcript of the monologue:

I don’t know what we’re doing as a society. We’re tearing apart absolutely everything and splitting us into little groups. Now white men suck, and we need to apologize. This is something now that is sweeping our college campuses… You’ll think it’s a joke. You’ll think it’s a Saturday Night Live kit, but it’s not, they’re serious. ‘Hi, I’m white. I’m a male, and I suck. And I’ve oppressed people for so long.’ Now, I haven’t oppressed anybody. I don’t apologize for my whiteness or for being born a male. There are some things I can’t change. Oh, no, I guess now I can change that. There are some things I don’t want to change and being a white male, no matter where I live in the world, I’m not ashamed of. I never will be. Yes, I am a white. A white man. Oh, no, but all white males don’t suck. Some have sucked, sure. Some still suck. Uh-huh.

But isn’t it racist to condemn an entire group based on color? And what’s even more amazing: This is coming out of the university systems that are trying to teach us how to be tolerant. What’s more amazing is this is more than just racism. It’s also sexism and gender bashing. All three of those things were constantly being lectured to as being bad. All three of those things I was taught was wrong growing up in a household in the 1960s – run by a white male. Is it possible I learned that those things were wrong? But could we look at the theory of all white men suck for a minute?

Robert Mugabe, white male. He sucked. Wait, no, he’s black. Well, a white male Che [Guevara]. He sucked. He killed all kinds of people. Hated homosexuals. Hated blacks. Oh, no, wait. He was Hispanic. Well, Mao. Mao, he really sucked. But wait, he was Chinese. So maybe it isn’t race because some of the biggest killers of the last 100 years were of different colors. Okay, it’s got to be something different because Robert Byrd sucked and he was a white male. He was a Klan member. But he was a Democrat. Hitler sucked. He was white. But he was a socialist. Stalin sucked, and he was a white male. But he was a communist. Yes, they’re all men. Maybe that’s it. It’s just that they’re all men. No, Margaret Sanger, she sucked. She’s responsible for the death of millions. And she was white, but she was a woman and a progressive.

So the Grinch puzzled and puzzled until his puzzler was sore. To suck because you’re a white male isn’t quite right. Maybe, just maybe, there’s a little bit more. Abe Lincoln, he was a white male. He didn’t suck. Jack Kennedy, he was a white male. He didn’t suck. The new pope, he’s a white male. A lot of people don’t think he sucked. The first beloved black president, he’s a white male. Wait. Tesla was a white male. He gave us the outlet and the power generation that we now have in our damns. The reason why you can hear my voice today is because of Tesla. He was a white male. Louis Pasteur is the reason why many of us are alive today. He was a white male. He gave us antibiotics. Henry Ford was a white guy. He gave us the assembly line which created a Detroit that was out in the front lines in early 1900s as a city that was an absolute boon for blacks and anyone who wanted and needed good jobs. Yes, Henry Ford was personally a racist and horribly anti-Semitic. But I believe he was also a progressive Democrat. His work is responsible for one of the largest cash cows for the progressive movement, the Ford Foundation.

‘Wait a minute,’ said the Grinch. If the left hates the white man so much, one of the worst white men who ever created a whole bunch of jobs and a whole bunch of good things. But let’s not concentrate on that. Let’s just concentrate on his racism, his blood money that he made. If they hate him so much, then they should refrain from taking that blood money from the Ford Foundation. FDR, he was a white male, beloved by the elite and left. And of course, we know he didn’t suck. He only put the Japanese behind barbed wire. He was a progressive Democrat, you know. Woodrow Wilson, there’s a white man for you. Oh, college professors love him. Same college professors who now want me to call all white men evil, continually put Woodrow Wilson as one of the greatest presidents to ever live – in the same category as Abraham Lincoln and that other guy who built the concentration camps for people of different color. What’s so odd about this grouping is the fact that one of them freed the slaves as a white Republican and the other two are progressive Democrats. And Wilson re-segregated the army – a profound racist and a general in the war on women. Hmm.

I’m noticing a pattern here. LBJ was a white male. He was also a progressive democratic icon. Everybody loved him. He was a creator of the great society. He was also the man who single-handedly shut down the civil rights legislation and kept it down for a decade before it was finally reintroduced when he was president. It was a decade of strife, of bloodshed, and assassinations of Malcolm X and MLK. If LBJ had been on the right side, none of that stuff would have had to happen. Side note: The legislation was proposed by a white male, a president who is white. No, not John F. Kennedy, of course. You’d have to use Common Core math to make that a decade. No, it was Dwight Eisenhower. A white male. Yes, who was also one of those Republicans.

The white heritage that we’re supposed to now hate is also the Judeo-Christian heritage which first freed the slaves in Egypt and then led to the enlightenment and the Second Great Awakening which freed the slaves in America. It is the white heritage that gave us Benjamin Franklin, yes, that evil founder, who was not only a strong abolitionist but also started the first public hospital and gave the world his invention of the potbelly stove for free. It’s that heritage or the so-called white heritage that is so evil that gave the world the electric light, the movie camera, the television, the Internet, the moon landing. Yes, blacks and people of all different colors and races were involved in that heritage. But here’s the conundrum: You really can’t condemn an entire culture and claim that this culture has made it impossible for the man of color to participate in any meaningful way and then try to claim that the black man or the yellow man or the red man or any man or any woman was powerful enough to add any significant contribution to the amazing accomplishments of this evil white culture. Because if you did, in doing so, you would invalidate your entire argument.

Oh, man, my puzzler is sore again. Of course, if you didn’t do that, then you would have to point out that what happened here in this white male-run evil culture wasn’t all bad. In fact, some, if not much of it, was profoundly good for humans. I mean it wasn’t the Asian culture that did these things. Or the actual African culture that did this. Or the female Hispanic culture, which again seems to undercut the argument that the white heritage isn’t all bad. A lot of things do go into the damning of a man.

I can’t imagine what part a man’s race might play. I always was taught by my father and my grandfather, both white males, that racism was when you judged a man based solely on his race and lumped everyone together due to their skin or to their heritage. They taught me that that’s what Hitler did – judged people by groups, put people in groups of race, color, or ability. It’s what led to Hitler killing the handicapped because they were no longer people. They were just a category.

I have an idea. Actually, with the way things are going today in America, it seems to be less of an idea or at least less of a workable idea and more of, I don’t know, a dream. Let’s leave it at that. I have a dream that one day black children and white children will all play together and work together and love each other and build a better future. I have a dream that a man will not be judged on his sexuality or his gender or his race, but rather the content of his individual character. I know, impossible, isn’t it? We all seem to be moving in the opposite direction. But, hey, this is still America where a man can still dream, right?

    I think Mr. Parkhurst just needs to kill himself for the good of all humanity. Oh, and he should probably encourage his father, brothers, uncles, and any white male friends to do likewise.

I am proud to be a cracker thank you. Just as I can be proud to be German/Polish/Danish/Jewish and any other distinction anyone wants to make. Oh, how about rich too? I am really thankful I was born when and where I was. I am glad I was born in America. Frankly every black person today needs to ask themselves where would they be today if their ancestors had not been slaves at some point in America? Would you rather have taken your chance in Africa where starvation stalks the land? What idiots.

      I was thinking that very thing today…how the descendants of slaves are probably better off here in America rather than getting killed by Boko Haram and other groups in Africa. Of course, I do feel bad for people born in the very poor, crumbling inner-city type areas. That must be hard to get out of.

        I agree with your statement up until you mention the “very poor, crumbling inner-city type areas”. I served in the USMC and have been around the world. I have seen poor. I have seen people that would literally kill to be as “poor” as the so-called American “poor”. If you have a roof over your head, cable TV, a new car to drive and food stamps you’re NOT poor. I have also worked in those crumbling inner-city areas and the reason they are crumbling is because the people that live there have destroyed them. They don’t get repaired because when people are sent to repair them they are harassed, robbed, killed or all three. The only ones I pity are the children but then again, they grow up to do the same thing.

          Well, I didn’t actually mean I felt bad because they were poor. I’m extremely poor myself but I live in a safe area. I meant exactly what I said, I feel bad for people who start out in dangerous areas through no fault of their own, because their lives are in jeopardy and it is probably difficult to get out of there.

      It is all to Buy Votes and for no other reason. LBJ said, in the 60s after signing the “New Deal”, “We will have those “N” words voting Dumbocrat for the next 200 yrs”. Ever wonder why he would say something like that, and why he would be so sure? You see, he knew human nature, some of us would rather sit around getting high, sleeping until 2PM and still get paid. Others, Not so much. So he needed a wedge to drive between the Tax payers that pay the bill and the others that Vote for a living to make sure HE and his ilk were safe from having to be just another American working for a living. That wedge in called PC. Simple.

      • Jon Galt

        LBJ did say that, however it was “the great society,” i.e. welfare programs, war on poverty. The New Deal was FDR.

        And so far LBJ was right. The legislation passed and blacks have camped on the Democrat plantation ever since. Apparently free stuff from racists (actually taxpayers, but promised to them by racists) buys forgiveness towards them and animosity to the party that’s been fighting for their rights since its inception with Abraham Lincoln.

            Diversity is a sham. multiculturalism is a by word for cultural marxism. Diversity only leads to parallel societies who have no allegiance to America. this is the left’s way of divide and conquer. As far as slavery goes, it was White Christian Europeans who stopped slavery. Slavery reigns supreme in Africa and Muslim held countries to this very day, and thats why they were and always will be hell holes without a future. There is no hope for humanity without the white man who maintains his Christianity.

            Emily, ‘diversity’ has always been here. America is a bunch of people of different races and ethnic backgrounds. The problem has always been ‘elitism’, something the Founders, the Republicans and both white and black (and other) Americans have fought long and hard to eradicate.

            Elitism is the notion that some people are superior to others. Democrats worked long and hard to keep black people enslaved, then disempowered with Jim Crow laws and poll taxes and gun control and marriage licenses, now with the welfare system that prevents black Americans from standing on their own feet.

            In our national parks, we have signs saying, “Don’t feed the bears. It makes them dependent and unable to provide for themselve.” Democrats have cleverly extended this to a national institution and guess who they think the ‘bears’ are.

            White and black Republicans and other free people fought a bloody war and continue the struggle to get all Americans free of those nefarious games.

        I am no fan of Harry Reid but he and Mitt belong to the same church. I would imagine Harry Reid contributes the same 10% to the church but I don’t know anything about his contributions to charitable organizations. This is a perfect example of how two men can seemingly come from the same set of beliefs and have them manifest themselves in such polar opposite ways. It is crazy. This is why the argument above is so stupid. Your race, religion, orientation, etc. isn’t what makes the person. It is the content of their character, that is what defines us. Integrity too.

        A slight correction for you: Harry, Mitt and I are all of the same religion, much though I hate to admit that I have anything in common with Harry. Harry does pay tithing to the church, just like Mitt and I do.The church welfare program is not funded from tithing. It is funded by Fast Offerings, which are paid on the first Sunday of each month, when we fast for two meals and give the money that would have been expended on those meals to the church for helping the poor. It is up to each member to determine how much money they might have spent on those two meals. For me it might be Jack in the Box, while for Mitt it might be Delmonico’s. I don’t know where Harry places himself, or even if he gives at all. Most Mormons don’t say anything about it.

      Africa for the Africans. Asia for the Asians. White countries for everybody!

      Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

      The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

      Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

      What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries? How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem? And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

      But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

      This all began in 1988 by Peggy McIntosh. The “Invisible Knapsack” is a term coined by McIntosh in her essay, “Unpacking the Knapsack of White Privilege”, based on racial inequality. McIntosh argues that the unearned resources carried in the Invisible Knapsack are not in broad view or intended to be seen. Her short essay states that, “White privilege is like an invisible weightless knapsack of special provisions, maps, passports, codebooks, visas, clothes, tools and blank checks.” McIntosh emphasizes that these privileges are not distributed equally or shared by individuals of every race.

      Here is the link to her paper. http://www.iub.edu/~tchsotl/part2/McIntosh%20White%20Privilege.pdf

      I am a seminary student and had to incorporate this into papers on how I thought being a WHITE female would hinder my ability to be in ministry and minister to folks, especially of other races. I argued against this notion completely and it was not taken well.

      The phenomenon isn’t inherently wrong, but the way it’s pushed is.

      “Privilege” is when you never encounter something someone else of whatever visual difference may have to deal with on a daily basis. (So basically, we’re talking about a discrimination based on what you look like… when normally it shouldn’t matter.)

      For instance: this “white privilege” is considered such when you don’t have to deal with any situation that someone who may not be white will question whether or not their skin tone came into play. “If I was white, this would be different.”

      “Male privilege” would be not being dismissed your ideas because you’re “moody”.

      So, yeah, pretty much any time you could say “If I was (descriptor), this would be different.” is considered a “privilege”. (tall, straight, thin, blonde, non-disabled, etc)

      To me, yes – there are times in my life I have been passed over because I didn’t fit the bill for whatever it was. But I don’t sit here and say it’s the other person’s fault – I say it’s because the person I was dealing with was an insufferable a-hole and couldn’t bother looking past his own nose.

      I don’t think anyone should have to apologize for anything, but I do believe it is good to be able to see that sometimes, what you look like can give you an unfair advantage and give others disadvantages. But the movement is hurting being able to change any of that. I want to live in a world that MLK dreamed – where no one is judged by what they look like, but for who they are and we cannot get there by bringing up the people who are oppressed while oppressing those who are not.

      • Laurel

        Sorry but I disagree.

        I commend you that you don’t have a pity party and I totally agree with that. However 99% of the time you don’t know why you were passed over for a singular event. You don’t know if it was because you weren’t blonde or otherwise. You don’t know if it was because you are a male or female.

        Most claims of discrimination are often based in emotionalism. Not all though, but it is a high bar to prove and because of that it often leaves all parties involved burned.

        People need to learn no one promised you a rose garden and the grass isn’t always greener on the other side of the fence. You use the term privilege very broadly. Should we create a world of “Harrison Bergeron” and handicap everyone no matter what their talents may be?

        See I don’t see someone being born beautiful or ugly as a privilege because those particular traits come with their own particular set of disadvantages. Using the term privilege in a broad sense only divides us even more into groups and that makes our differences be it beauty, brains, or what have you even more glaring…not less.

        • Anonymous

          And I respectfully disagree that it doesn’t happen or that people who claim being discriminated on are “just being emotional”. My vague example was just that, a vague example. It doesn’t just happen in “events” where one can be “passed over” (I’m assuming you’re probably thinking job interviews or housing applications). This stuff happens in multiple ways. As in, times when people feel it’s okay to judge a person by what they look like, for instance, when you’re fat. An example of thin privilege would be able to go to your doctor when you’ve broken your toe and getting an x-ray and a cast, not being told “your foot hurts because you’re fat, just lose weight and the pain will go away.” It’s a situation where people who have never seen it any other way have no need to think twice the next time it happens. You break a bone, you go to the doctor and get a cast. Right? But for someone who has had it happened to them, they sit there saying “but it does happen” and are told they’re wrong (“doctors don’t do that….”), or worse – blamed (“well, maybe you wouldn’t have broken a toe if you weren’t so fat.” despite the reason the toe was broken in the first place). It doesn’t matter how the toe got broken, the point is… the toe is broken. You have a broken bone, you go to the doctor to get it healed properly. It’s not about being promised a rose garden, it’s about being treated like a human being instead of a lying sack of meat who is “out for sympathy” and “reading into things too much”.

          I know life is not a rose garden and that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. And like, I said, I don’t exactly agree to the term. I think it’s pompous. But, what should just be “life”, however, isn’t.

          For instance, I’ve never broke a bone and had a doctor question whether or not my size comes into play (and I know it does happen, because I’ve seen it happen). I have, though, experienced an unexplained rapid rise of my weight that had no explanation. Having grown up in a household with a nurse parent, I will admit I did have an *actual* privilege in knowing that rapid weight gain is usually a sign of something wrong. However, having just had a baby and being put on BC for the first time, I attributed it to that and thought nothing more. But then, a year later, I found that my thyroid was swollen. Then the other symptoms came. Memory loss, fatigue, thinning hair, constantly cold, even more weight gain with still no change in diet but it was getting harder to exercise because of constant exhaustion, poor basal body temp upon rising – everything pointed to my thyroid, yet every time I went to my doctor (and full disclosure, this was my new family doctor because I moved 2000 miles away from home) “oh, you’re just experiencing that because of your weight. Lose weight.”, “but what about the lump?”, “nah, it’s just the weight, see here? Your TSH is just fine. You’re just fat, lose weight.”

          My conditions got worse. I couldn’t even do a single errand outside my house without having to sleep afterwards I was that exhausted. I would forget I was even talking to someone half-way through my sentence. I honestly had to write down EVERYTHING I wanted to say for my appointment with my doctor. You know what she said? It was still my weight. I just needed to lose weight and the symptoms would go away. The ONLY reason she had me see an ENT was that I said I was having trouble breathing and swallowing if I turned my head. (which I’m honestly surprised she didn’t just tell me to “not turn my head to swallow” with her attitude.) Even with a TSH at 4.25 (which is technically still under the original lab guide of “normal”, which a good portion have changed their ranges to .3-3.0 to reflect “normal” more accurately thanks to studies done) my doctor still had the audacity to tell me that people in my range “barely start to show symptoms”, again, insisting that my weight was still to blame for the majority of it.

          To make a long story short, after 5 years of arguing with my doctor, I eventually did have to have half my thyroid removed due to a tennis-ball sized nodule growing in it. Within that nodule, they found cancer. Since having it removed and hormones balanced to have a TSH under 1, things are getting MUCH better and I am easily able to do the things as I was before having my child.

          My point with this personal account is, I was looked at and told my problem was pretty much “in my head” and that my weight was the culprit. If I continued to listen to that, what was only a small amount of malignant cancer could have become much more and spread. It’s not emotionalism, it’s realism. I’m not talking about if I’m “better off” (though certainly you can make the strawman argument that I am better off without cancer) – my weight trumped my humanity. And here’s the thing – if I was thinner, it would have been different. (And I’m not talking about having hyperthyroidism as opposed to hypothyroidism)

          So yes, I agree that using the “privilege” scapegoat can be used as a way to divide us. However, as I noted, the phenomenon isn’t unfounded. It does exist. People do use our differences as a division and have used it in ways to prefer one “type” over another. Which, I’m not saying it’s wrong for people to prefer brunettes over blondes or vice-versa, but it is a problem when it comes to things where personal preference *shouldn’t* matter. Yes, we do have our differences and that is what makes us wonderful – but our differences shouldn’t trump who we are as people and no one should be treated like dirt because of them. And if you don’t agree, then, I’m sorry. You’re one of those a-holes I feel sorry for.

          • Laurel

            I skimmed your rant. Sorry but I did because it appears you are saying that because someone disagrees on what is considered attractive, healthy, etc that they are being judged and judging incorrectly.

            Sorry but that is not the case. Furthermore judging someone is not necessarily discriminating. For every thing you think is a privilege I can show you a downside. My mother was thin, pretty, and little. She always had trouble finding clothes, was freezing cold all of the time, and died young due to an unhealthy immune system. there are many that would of killed to look like her.

            You are not applying the meaning of privilege correctly in the context of the word or life. As to whether personal preference should matter or not in any given situation that is an opinion and that opinion is going to vary from individual to individual. People are people and they cannot help but put their personal preference to any decision making…including you.

            Your anecdotal evidence is just that and so it counts for little. I’m sorry about your cancer and original misdiagnosis but unfortunately people get misdiagnosed every single day for a myriad of reasons. Yes that doctor let his own bias get in the way and hopefully you taught him a lesson. However you are letting YOUR bias get in the way as well. I’m betting the doctor has a whole different take on your situation and the reality is stats related to obesity are not in your favor but in the doc’s favor. You are the exception that quite possibly proves the rule.

            That doesn’t mean we should lose our humanity towards the obese, quite the opposite actually. In a perfect world we would treat the obese much better and the drug addicts who claim victim-hood and ‘disease’ status worse. Why don’t we? Because while I praise individuality I know that a little bit of conformity isn’t necessarily a bad thing. And we conform daily in a lot of ways whether we realize it or not. Public behavior is but one way.

            You based your whole post to me on your personal experience and I understand that due to my personal experiences in the same area but my overall point is applied in a much broader context. There will always be exceptions and generally speaking they prove the rule.

          • Anonymous

            Yeah, skimmed yours too. And I see you’re still just reading what you want.

            How many times have I said the word does not fit right? I hate the word. It’s a stupid word that doesn’t work for what it’s trying to point out. I only use the word because that’s what people are trying to use, so I’m *TRYING* to explain to you what it is they’re *MEANING*. And, as I’ve stated, I AGREE that it’s being wrongly used in a broader context – and I understand what you’re saying with the whole broader context. However, I’m not talking about the broader context. I’m talking about the lesser context that DOES happen and SHOULD NOT be written off. In layterms – Making people apologize for living life as who they are because they were not aware that they just fit in with the majority of “personal preference” doesn’t need to happen. Recognizing people are honestly being limited their freedoms due to their appearance? It’s a good thing to know it exists so we can work to have it stop.

            Also, as I stated as well, there are times when personal preference *SHOULD NOT* play a part of a situation. Instances like going to the doctor. If you feel a doctor should pick and choose how he treats a person based on their appearance, there is an issue. A BIG issue. Laws have been written to try to point out when this isn’t acceptable, so why do you feel the need to protect those who just write the law off? I’m not talking about personal preferences in a flippant way. I don’t care if someone “likes me” or not. I do care whether or not if that person doesn’t like me because of who I am and this person can stand in my way to keep me from life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

            And if you’re ever in that position as that person who can stand in the way – if you can’t put behind your preferences, you’ve got a problem. And to counter your statement, yes, I can put behind my personal preferences. I have a job where I deal every day with people and my main concern is 1) can I help them. 2) is what they need helped with possible 3) what can I do to help them the best way possible? I don’t care who I’m speaking to. I do my job. I don’t care what you look like – all I care is that you’ve come to me because I offer a service that you need and I will do what I can to offer that service to you. There’s no need to bring in personal preferences. Though, I will admit, if you’re nice to me – I’ll give you a discount. Doesn’t matter what you look like. You’ve made the decision to be nice, I’ll reciprocate it because for the most part – I don’t get many nice people because I work with customers at one of the most stressful times in their lives.

            And your anecdotal evidence only serves to show how screwed up our desire to be “thin” is. Doesn’t it occur to you as odd that a person could be dying from cancer, but people find it okay to note how “good they look” because they’re thin? It sucks, but that’s a whole different movement. Sorry you lost your mother early. But when she went to the doctor, I bet you she had no problems when talking to her doctor. If she had a complaint, they looked into it, right? That is where my story comes into play. If you’re thin and have a problem, when you say you have a problem, you’re more likely to have that problem looked at and dealt with. When you’re fat, there is a larger than there should be chance that you’ll only be told to ‘lose weight’ (or, worse, told you need to take medications you don’t need). This isn’t just misdiagnosis, it’s a problem that needs to be addressed. But as I keep saying, I hate the word “privilege” because I don’t like how it points to the one party as if it is their fault. But it sucks that the party has to be brought in to point out that “Wait, these people can do this simply because they look this way, but I’m being treated differently because I look different.” But again, you can’t say that it doesn’t happen because it does and is. And it’s not just fat vs thin, it IS white vs black, man vs woman, young vs old, etc.

            If you still can’t see what I’m trying to say, don’t bother replying. I’m done. I’ve constantly noted I understand what you’re saying, I agree to the majority for the most part, but there is a problem – just not the “broader context” that was originally put forth on this site. Troll back if you must, but I won’t bother reading it and I certainly won’t reply back. I have said my piece and feel my point has been made (and is simply falling on blind eyes), so there’s no point. Arguing on the internet is like having a contest to see who can lose the most blood the quickest. So I’m going to bow out and hope that maybe, some day, something will click and you’ll finally understand what I’ve written here instead of continuing to look at it through your “broader context” lenses.

            In the world anecdotal evidence counts for very little. Believe it or not I do understand what you are saying but it just isn’t applicable.

            And P.S as to my mother. Nope. It was due to misdiagnosis and malpractice she died. Doctors are arrogant and ignorant all of the time. As I said…not infallible. What do you call the guy who graduated at the bottom of his med school? Doctor.

    Michael Jordan admits to being recaist when he was young, yet the media doesn’t attack him like they did Paula Deen

    I’ve had the opposite experience from Jordan. I grew up with black/Hispanic friends, never initially thinking about race. After having experienced so much mistreatment from minorities, though, it seems to me that reality is the opposite of what the media preaches. I hate to say it, but in today’s society, black folks are much more racist than white folks- I’m speaking in general, of course. Not categorizing EVERY single person’s feelings.

    I’m close to 40 years old, and in the last 20 years I can say white males are mistreated by the media, Govt programs, and many “minorities”.

    Just because some white guys are billionaires, doesn’t mean the other 99.999% of white folks are “privileged”.

      I watched Hannity last night and Tiki Barber was on speaking about Michael Jordan. What happened was while he was in school a White girl called him the “N” word and he threw his soda can at her. He admits having “racist” feelings for quite a while after that incident but he has resolved it within himself (as Tiki so eloquently stated “Michael Jordan became educated”) and does not harbor those feelings now. In fact, he married a White gal.

      Instead of targeting Michael Jordan, why doesn’t the media call out Sharpton, Jackson, Obama, Holder, and all the other whiners, complainers, and race hustlers???!!!

    My experiences are nowhere close to what is being portrayed by Barack Obama and the liberal media.

    From the time I was 15 until I retired a few years ago I worked. I attended college at night and obtained my under graduate and MBA ALL WHILE WORKING and raising a family (3 children).

    I went from a general factory worker (floor sweeper) to the level of Associate Director (Vice President of Operations). Along the way there were many occasions where, at a certain level, a black was promoted ahead of me. Most of the times it was because the company was into “Affirmative Action” and other artificial crutches in their attempt to right the past wrongs of society. While this did not make me happy, I did understand and knew that it was part of the process. It motivated me to work harder, smarter and longer to get ahead.

    To this day I hold no ill feelings about how the company chose to deal with the situation. I will say that many of the promoted people hit their “Peter Principle” right away so I don’t think the company was rewarded for their decisions. Incompetency was one of the negative outcomes from the affirmative action programs.

    It is now the 21st century and I believe it is time to stop discrimination of any type. This includes affirmative action, set asides, quota’s and any other artificial advantage for any minority One of the beauties of the free enterprise system is that if you want to make money you will hire and promote the person you believe will help you achieve success.

    I am a white guy who has absolutely zero guilt for what happened 150+ years ago. I live in the now and I don’t like Barack Obama because he is not helping this country to move forward. I have never seen somebody so full of blame.

Do you disrespect in all of it’s various forms other races in favor of your own? do you discriminate based upon race?

    They are apologizing for their very existence. Maybe someone should put them out of their misery by taking everything they own and making them personal slaves to the individuals whom they feel the need to apologize.

    This behavior is so disgusting it belongs alongside the Nazi’s of WWII. It is anti-human to be so hateful towards an entire population of fellow humans just trying to live day to day. Seems they think they can’t be judged on their characters but on JUST the color of their skin. How racially sensitive.

    ROTFL. Yeah, white privilege got me into Princeton… oh wait, no it didn’t. Well white privilege got me into MIT… oh wait, wrong again. Well certainly white privilege got me good grades in college… wait, no… it got me a good job.. no again…

    Funny it seems like the harder I work the more privileged I get…

    Everyone better apologize to Jesus for how they are treating Him, before asking anyone else to apologize, if they know what is good for them. People need to find out who He really is….Here ya go….15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him ALL THINGS were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and FOR Him. 17 And He is before ALL THINGS, and in Him ALL THINGS consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in ALL THINGS He may have the preeminence. Colossians 1

    So I would be getting with Him, if I were you. He is coming quickly…Rev 22…

    Jesus Testifies to the Churches

    12 “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. 13 I AM the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.” HE IS THE REAL GOD, HE SAID SO

    EGAD THEY LOOKED AND SOUNDED LIKE WIMPS….So when do the blacks apologize for being black.. or the chinese for being oriental… .??????

  • Rabelad

    I’m a white male, of European stock, ethnically I’m a Slav whose ancestors hail from eastern Europe. My great-great-grandparents were slaves in eastern Europe because they were serfs who lived in a fief under the control of a white man. Serfdom there ended about 100 years ago there but my ancestors were part of that feudal system which extended back 1,000 years plus. That was a long time. Slavery is slavery and my heritage was one of slavery which was only halted when my grandparents arrived in the USA. My ancestors were slaves who eked out a bare living under the thumb of cruel white overseers who demanded a certain absolute yield of my great-great-great grandparent’s crops. And if it was a bad year and crop yields were low it was my ancestors who had to make do with little or starve to death as the while nobleman got what he demanded. If my ancestors starved that wasn’t the cruel white nobleman’s concern.

    Who says that white males should feel guilty for “privilege”? What “privilege”? We earned that! After all, American white men’s ancestors of European stock just got sick of being slaves and overthrew their cruel white overseers and decided to live as if they were free men. Not only did they revolt and become free in fact, they also deliberatly jettisoned their slave mentality, something many American blacks refuse to do.

    Those guys who are beating themselves up in guilt because they enjoy the
    mentality of a free man and not one of a slave or ex-slave are just plain silly. Believeing and thinking as if one is free and unfettered, and privilaged SHOULD be the aim of everyone who has come out of slavery!

    American blacks should also see themselves as if they are privileged – as they truly are compared to many peoples, both white and black, who live in many other countries where freedom is not a right extended for all like in the US. it’s not that white men should feel guilty for “privilage”, it’s the blacks who should feel that they are privilaged and throw away a slave mentalty that only hinders them in life.

    If you don’t believe in a good God, then you’ll willing to believe anything. Jung said our most basic, healthy impulse is to worship something. Now America worships either the environment or material goods.

    If you do believe in a good God, then you have the ability and capacity to thank Him for making you, you.

    It would be nice to stack up all the achievements and contributions to the world from white males and compare them to everyone else. And have folks have to prove all the rationalizations of “Oh, so-and-so could have done that, but they were stopped by “. And, “Oh, white males only succeed because of , or, “No, OTHER people NEVER did anything bad, native americans lived in peace and harmony with each other, never took slaves, race X has always been noble and pure…”

    That’s another thing about White Males. They’re not ALL so gullible as to believe all that crap.

    I do notice that there’s a lot of anger boiling up after our Great Black Messiah and Noble Uniter gives a speech. And it’s not even on the part of all the folks who lay claim to their “justified rage”.

    Here’s an idea. Spend less time whining about what everybody else has and make something instead of expecting to take it from others because of some injustice before any of us were born. And that goes for our Affirmative Action President and his band of adolescents that make up this “administration” and various appointees.

Lets not forget how because I am white I have been turned down by many promotions because you guessed it I was white and the corporate world wanted to show they promote minorities more then the white man.What about not being able to walk down many of the streets in many of our cities all because I am white and it would be unsafe now. Because I am white I have to struggle for everything I have yet if I were a minority it would be given to me or made much easier to achieve.

    I’m 16 Years old, I’m white, male. and apparently automatically branded as racist just because of who I am. I have to practically apologize for who I am, even to other white individuals. Whats even worse about me, I have an opinion! I’m not stuck on my phone or in some stupid video game. I am watch/listening to Glenn Beck, I keep up on things like elections and what candidates views are, even though I cannot vote yet. That makes me “DANGEROUS”. I’m am a high school student, and other students (not like-minded) are saying things like “Democrat” and “Equal rights” in discussions, but as soon as I say the word “Librarian” or “Conservative” I am immediately shut down by other adults that are listening. Even in normal circumstances, at the airport, I have a first class seat. The flight attendant calls up my group to board first, but when another passenger see’s me, she calls out to the flight attendant “Why’s he boarding first? is it cause he’s white?”. Even when I didn’t do a thing, I’m still targeted for being somehow favored. Like I’m supposed to say; “sorry I’m white and I’m going to give you my seat because I’m a racist bigot” Thank you America, I’m so happy I get to be discriminated before I’ve even graduated.

    Dear Glenn,

    You are waisting too much energy and sharing too much attention and significance to the minorities that simply don’t deserve it; and that puts you on the same level as them, playing the same game of hatred and racism that they enjoy so much; in other words, they have you right where they want you to be, fighting back with the same negativity that feeds them and where they get their strength from.

    We are supposed to be a light among darkness, but honestly, this is not the best way to express our love to our neighbor and forgive him for not acknowledging their own wrongs and wickedness; but as good Christians,we must start leading by example and showing the world that we are beyond hatred and above wickedness with the same compassion, mercy and forgiveness that our Savior taught us to express…

Young adults believe the left-wing media and never check facts for themselves, just use a celebrity and pitch global warming or white racism or hate all authority, and Young Adults repeat it fearing to be different, to be an individual, to have an opinion that is vetted(that means fact checked). Past groups have made mistakes but look at the achievements and balance what America has done in all of Civilizations. Young people used to respect their elders now the immoral mindless party hounds look down on men and women who have lived long and used the values they now despise. All I can say is JESUS is coming for some to redemption and others to judgement. Judgement the taboo no one should do but even when you don’t you judge we always judge, appearances, clothing, our friends, what we do, . Anyone can destroy but it takes a village to build something worthwhile.

    I have nothing to apologize for….This was the dumbest video I have ever seen…

    It lumps every white man in with the most evil folks who have existed..

    Let’s talk for a moment about my privilege… I was born in a converted chicken coop, in the mountains of Appalachia..

    My father was a coal miner, who worked our field that fed us during the day, and the mines at night…When he slept I don’t even remember..

    We had no in door plumbing…that means water or toilet.. I would walk about a hundred feet to the toilet in the winter at night, if I had to go..

    We took baths in a metal trough.. that my grandma would heat water on a coal stove in the kitchen to mix with the well water…

    Most of the picture of us kids in the summer, when we were small,are of us playing outside in our underwear..We only had a few good clothes, and 1 pair of shoes for school..

    The house only had 2 light bulbs,and one outlet that the TVA program, put in when we were small… Other then that, it was coal oil lamps..It was three rooms kitchen/dining area, bedroom that all of us kids slept in, and a bedroom /living room that my folks had…

    Now we worked as kids very had in the fields..At 15 my dad said, “I had to go to work in the mines”..I went for a year, and still went to school, but that was too hard..Plus I hated the mines, and leaving would mean one less mouth to feed….so I had a choice to make…

    I ran away and went out west, lived in an RV park in a travel trailer, got a little job to pay my bills that wasn’t as physically hard as the mines,and finished High school….Better add…. with the help of a friends mom who lied, and said she was my mom, and signed me up for school….

    Then, because I had no chance to go to college…I joined the military, and served my country..

    The rest is a normal young guy with not any help…. story……I worked hard saved money, started a family, raised my kids better than I had it…Started a business and so on..

    I have nothing to apologize for..and nothing to feel bad about any privilege someone thinks I had because of my skin color..

    I’m not sorry for being white. I was not part of those before me. However I do apologize for what happened under tyranny that minorities suffered because those who did the oppressing either can’t or won’t. Today I see whites who are either indifferent about it, or ignorant about it. A little recognition wouldn’t hurt, and would bring change in order to allow all Americans to pursue happiness, which is written in our constitution.

Yes, it may be a ‘trend’ with liberal hippie yahoos, but that doesn’t mean all of society is now going to ‘hate white men’… And defiantly declaring your pride in your color or heritage is only reckless unnecessary arrogance, not some deeply held ‘value’ of your ‘family’.

      The good has far outweighed the bad and constantly going over and over the same topic again and again is beating a dead horse until it has disintegrated.

        Politically correct false shame will also fuel the racist tendencies that still exist.

    WHAT A MORON! Oh, I guess that should be a SORRY MORON!

  • Will Cintron

    I am Hispanic and find this stupid mentality absurd. I had/ve many friends and supervisors in the Army who were better people than many Puerto Ricans friends who stabbed me in the back.They helped me in many ways to succeed in my military career and to this day we keep contact. And no, I am no a Hispanic version of ‘Uncle Tom’. It’s just the way it happened; I never had a chip on my shoulder with the mentality that the white man was there to keep me down. That there are racist white people? Oh yes. So there are many from my own race, black, Asian and other races that I experienced too. Good work Glenn. P.S. So white people (I even hate using this term), be proud of who you are and don’t feel guilty for the ones in past/present history have done. Everyone is responsible for their own actions.

    How about he make a video on how Islamist extremists, who kidnap children and gang rape women under sharia law, should say suck and they’re sorry. Or, perhaps he could make a video portraying black Africans, who sold their own people into slavery, should say suck and we’re sorry. How about he make a video about the Spanish conquerors who pillaged Mexico and murdered native inhabitants (whose descendents now want to be called Mexicans) should say they suck and they’re sorry? Mr. Parkhurst is obviously an ignorant, self-loathing fool and he should say he sucks and he’s sorry. That’s a video I’d watch.

    This is the stupidest thing I have ever heard! What idiot came up with this? Why should ANYONE have to apologize for the color of their skin? That’s not a choice you get to make. That’s decided by God or the universe or whatever makes that decision. You should only have to apologize for the things you do and how you treat other people, not the color of your skin.

    Am I missing something? I watched the video and I thought they were making fun.

    A few years ago, when I still lived in the People’s Republic of California, I went into a Department of Motor Vehicles office in Southern Cal. I was there to renew my Commercial Driver’s License. There were no white men working in the office. Out of more than 40 State workers there, there were no white men at all. White men are a small and getting smaller minority in the the PRC, who are constantly discriminated against. Soon there will be none left who are not homosexual.

      It’s because of the counterproductive Affirmative Action law.

    And Jesus said, I intervened again with humanity around 2 thousand of your years or so later, I sent several good men to a small piece of land to make a document of my values for that land to be ruled by and to be a beacon of light to the world and to combat evil in the world and they called that little piece of land the United States of America.

    Glenn Beck: standing up for white supremacy one rant at a time.

  • Linda Sills

    The name calling on this site is unbelievable. It must be the ignorant ones who don not have the word capability to debate. This is an honest issue- Pick a side- discuss it- Stop the name calling. You are on the suck side of ignorant.

    • Populist democrat

      “You are on the suck side of ignorant.”

      That’s a refreshingly honest assessment of Mr. Beck. His biography is subtitled “Glenn Beck and the Triumph of Ignorance.”

    Everyone on this site may not be familiar with this nonsense but you need to know that if they are sending a child through college there is a very good chance this is what they are being taught. Probably early on during an orientation. Type in the phrase ‘White Privilege’ and the phrase ‘Invisible Knapsack’. This nonsense has really gotten silly and parents need to know they are paying for it

  • Sraaken

    yeah, personally I love being a Christian, Hetero, American, Southern, White Male. Love it, love it, luuuuuv it!

    Diversity is racism. allow me to explain. Diversity believes that people are different based on differing ethnicity, gender, or sexual preference, etc. So automatically ‘Diversity’ divides people on the basis a black man is different from a white man even though these two men may have identical beliefs and views. They may have the very same background and social status, education, etc. but ‘Diversity’ assumes they MUST be different based on their race, hence the very people who invented ‘Diversity’ in an attempt to counter racism, are in fact, themselves racist…. I believe in the Unity of mankind, not the Division of mankind…!

    Furthermore, if we are to be free, our monetary rewards must result from the usefulness of our efforts rather than subjective judgments from others regarding our merits.

    • Populist democrat

      That’s what the striking fast-food workers have been saying. I take it you believe that the CEO’s of large corporations should NOT be pulling in millions and millions of dollars for their useless efforts.

    Speak for yourself Mr. Parkhurst! I neither suck nor am I sorry! I’m white and not privileged. I’ve worked my tail off for what I have, however meager. I do not appreciate class envy nor racism!

  • Wolfy Ghalkhani

    Who started this stupid movement? the left did. One way to destroy a particular group of people is to destroy their confidence, make them feel ugly and then move in for the kill. Thats Cultural Marxism at its best.

  • Equis

    Parkhurst is a moron, as is anyone who buys into this type of trash.

  • RomanMoroni

    I would be demanding a refund on my tuition if I was listening to this bs, non sense in a university. I d like to know what kind of a job I d be getting from such important lectures.

  • Sweets

    I feel sorry for the whites. They’ve had to bear the burden, culturally of the hate…so hard to keep it going and harder to stop.

  • Guest

    It’s weird. Nobody notices how Beck contributes to racism with his race-baiting of the President.

  • Jaz B.

    I don’t think anyone should have to apologize for being a certain race. I just think that some people are mad because the negative effects of being black are still out weighing negative effects of being white and the fact that people seem to be complaining about these negative effects seems to be a little off putting. Everyone looks for someone to blame for their shortcomings but in a world with a finite amount of people, that blame is never gonna stop jumping from race to race or gender to gender.
