It happens to black men all the time. Cause they are all thugs and criminals. And Trump said Mexicans are all rapists. And oh! How I bet you co-signed on that one? Didn’t ya? Even if you didn’t shout at a rally, you certainly believed it in your heart, cause I’m guessing your that TYPE.
In this country, we stereotype people all day, everyday. And I’m not saying it’s right, but I am saying it’s lazily convenient, and I’m no exception to that rule.
Well let me correct myself for you…a certain type of white male, with a certain type of rigid mindset (I would guess 50 to 60% of the white males in America) is resisting Post-modern theory because, it validates other perspectives besides white male ones.
But here is a question: why do YOU find the validation of other people’s experiences SO THREATENING? Do you really think so little of EVERYONE ELSE besides white men, that you have to seek to invalidate their experiences and expressions?
You’re probably going to say, “I don’t do that.” But you just tried to do it to me.
Everyone keeps saying, white men are SO UPSET because a loss of privilege, feels like oppression. And believe me there is, right now rampant economic oppression, that white men feels targets them, but it actually targets everyone, and white men are just the last to join this particular party. But the oppression has nothing to do with minority experiences or female experiences being validated, but white men have been brainwashed into believing that their economic success rests on minority and female oppression.
Certainly, at one point, that absolutely was the case. But…things have changed a bit, it’s not the case anymore, reasons are complex, but let’s not pretend you want to hear them.
You don’t. You probably think everything said at Trump rallies are the indisputable truth. Well, just go with that.
