Your inability to view your own privilege may be because you have never taken the time to view the world from the perspective of someone with less than you, but it appears you are keenly aware of your lack of privilege compared to others higher up. And since privilege is something given to you by others, you may not feel it but nevertheless enjoy the benefits each and every day over someone else seen as less worthy than you.

Also, privilege is a benefit that is affected by intersectionality; that is, a person's worth is seen through several lenses; like affluence, gender, ability, ethnicity, etc. And each of these lenses have a hierarchy from first class on down, for instance men have more privilege than women, able bodied people have more privilege than disabled, etc.

So when society judges a person's worth it evaluates each on a measure of Gender, man/woman; Affluence, rich/poor; Ability, abled/disabled; Ethnicity, western European/eastern European/eastern Asian/southern Asian/African/Indigenous; etc

So an able bodied affluent male with roots in western Europe in most cases has more privilege than just about anyone: a pregnant white woman, a professional south Asian man, a disabled first nation girl, etc.

Me, I enjoy the privilege of being male, able bodied, educated, and reasonably self sufficient, and I see those in society that have less. I necessarily have to have some measure of compassion for those with less and a desire to engineer a future where these distinctions have less influence than they do now.

But that's me, you do you to the best of your ability.

Ever experienced the family law system?
If you were in trouble in whatever way, compared to a female who is going to get help first or have someone come to your rescue?
Men die much sooner because we are expected to be expendable. We have brutal working conditions...even if our health and safety is on the line.
I could go on and on with this but I might be accused of whining,- which men are not allowed to do. Besides, if were accused of whining- my feelings might get hurt.

You have a serious axe to grind with women if you think men have it worse in this world.

Men are expendable because they have to work in a coal mine or oil rig or logging?

Ever hear of the sex trade? Human trafficking? Arguably less physically dangerous, many could easily argue that though, but emotionally devastating and the trade chews and spits out girls before they're even emotionally mature enough to deal with the horrors. Expendable in a brutal and callous way.

You ever fear for your life walking down a dark street at night and you hear the cold clicking of a pair of high heels walking behind you?

Have you heard of the glass ceiling? Many women are easily more capable than men that make 66% more than them, and despite strides made to even the gap the gap still exists.

I have privilege and your post does nothing to convince me otherwise.

So...

Human remains found in the Balkans of modern day Europe are older than any human remains found in Africa by several Million years...https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2 ... 083548.htm

:135: But...but...

Well... If science says so...

https://www.sciencealert.com/little-foo ... uth-africa

https://www.nationalgeographic.com/news ... a-science/

I'd say the science is still out on anything definitive on where we all come from.

Certainly not defined enough, that the out of Africa theory (OOA) can be used to justify today's BLM Marxist racism against other "races", especially whites.

But... In all fairness; let's consider this OOA theory as irrefutable proof.

Why then, despite millions of years of an evolutionary head start have black Africans not been able to achieve what other races have in much less time.

Besides the short lived Nubian empires, where are the great African contributions to the global civilizations they have apparently been solely responsible for spawning?

Where are the global systemic African constructs of laws and common traditions and technologies and arts that make a civilization advance and flourish?

Is this the grand African plan?

To wait several million years and wait for a light skinned race of humans to appear; than blame these anomalous white people for all the current woes of "colored" peoples and use this disparity of achievement as the catalyst to steal all the achievements of other races because some science says they were here first?

Did Africans, in the long ago past call "Shotgun" on this rocky planet plummeting through space and we've merely been ignorant to acknowledge this "factoid"??

Did marxists exist millennia ago and destroy all the statues the ancient Africans created as reminder for future generations of the predominance of African culture?

Why then would any self respecting black person now ally themselves with history destroying BLM marxists today?

War.
War is the root of almost all technology.
Whites have always been killing each other... hence they have mainly dominated the planet.
Just a theory.

Gotta love Castanet. Name the local restaurant that overcooked your burger: banned. Explicitly state your belief in the inferiority of black people: post away!

I don’t even know what to say.

I have never come across a situation that I make more than anyone else because I'm male. Mind you, I have only been in male dominated industries. Can you give a example?
'Dominated'....I'm going to make that my word of the day and try to use it as much as I can today.

Are you looking for an excuse? Good for you if you have found one and that is what you need.

I've heard that multiple times from FN families. Pzzes me off more and more every time. Why were they not eligible for veterans benefits like any other soldier?


To make a long story short, we weren't considered people and therefore not eligible for the appreciation of a grateful nation.

In the WWI, First Nations were not eligible for conscription because we weren't even considered citizens and not "of pure European descent". 4,000, or 1 in 3 able bodied FN men, enlisted anyway. When they returned they found they weren't eligible for benefits under the War Veterans Allowance Act, and many were even disenfranchised as Status Indians because the Indian Act specified that Indians absent from the reserve for four years were no longer Indians. They voluntarily served their country and were thrown in the ditch for their service.

In WWII FN were eligible for conscription and a further 3,000 enlisted voluntarily, we didn't even become citizens until 1960 but we fought for Canadian freedoms anyway. And again were ineligible for benefits on our return.

If Crankster wishes to complain about how his ancestors' contributions to Canadian freedoms are minimized or dismissed, he can join the back of the line as there are many others with justifiable grievances.
