It would take me years of writings to tell you about exactly when the left-wing nut cases and the fake news began creating a nation of brainwashed demented people. It would be ridiculous to talk about at this point how the Democrats have used African Americans and Hispanics to garner votes with promises they never have lived up to or kept for that matter. My question is why have African Americans and Hispanics never questioned this? Why do those who do question it, such as Candace Owens, for example, get lambasted into oblivion?
Let’s start with Obama, that is when it all began with his speech spewing to our military that “white people have the privilege” that other ‘colors’ do not.” Obama may have started the race war, but it never ended there. It caught on and then Black Lives Matter rose up. According to Dictionary.com, yes, it is in the dictionary now, BLM means “a political and social movement originating among African Americans, emphasizing basic human rights and racial equality for Black people and campaigning against various forms of racism.”
The above leads to the saying “white privilege,” or “white skin privilege,” which is the societal privilege that benefits white people over non-white people in some societies, particularly if they are otherwise under the same social, political, or economic circumstances benefit from. This led to Critical Race Theory (CRT), which refers to a way of analyzing systems or institutions, and power through a lens of race and racism. Now, this sets the backdrop to what I am going to share with you.
On Sunday afternoon around 5:00 PM, I was on my way home from Walmart. I arrived at the complex I live at and proceeded through the parking lot going about 5 miles an hour due to the speed bumps. When I was about to round the corner right in front of my car, and thank God I had plenty of time to stop in mine, was this ‘jeep looking hummer,’ dark maroon in color – all decorated up with gold decor around all the passenger windows, which were all black not tinted stood directly in front of my vehicle. I had no idea who was driving, who they were, or what they could be doing in that vehicle. I had no room to veer to the right so I veered to the left and literally parked next to the car there.
This person driving this vehicle after that one would have expected to proceed forward so that I would be able to make the turn. They did not. Instead, they moved their vehicle semi-counter clockwise to block me in. At first, I did not believe this was really happening to me. I could not move forward or backward without hitting the other vehicle. I was alone, I did not know what to do – I felt helpless just sitting there. I was tempted to open my window and nicely ask them to move but I felt that would provoke them. I mean here I am blocked in so anything could happen. After sitting there five minutes the vehicle moved just enough so I could back out, but not forward. It was a close call because at any time that vehicle could have moved and I would have struck it. Fortunately, I was able to back out slowly and safely.
I had to hold my temper because believe me I was tempted to ask the driver what their problem was but my good sense told me to just drive by and not even look. As I slowly proceeded to the far right I could see from my peripheral vision that the driver’s window was down, but due to the sun, I could not see his face. How did I know it was a man? His voice and what happened next shocked me to my core.
Apparently, this person also lives at my complex, which is a mix of nationalities, and races not limited to any race or nationality. Then the onslaught of words came, “You effing white b****! Sick of your ‘white privilege.’ I know you live here and I am going to effing get you and smash that car up!” I began to speed, which I never do to my parking place. I never looked back and I am remiss to add I took no pictures of the vehicle or license plate since my windows are not tinted or black I would have been seen and did not want to escalate an already ugly situation.
After parking and retrieving my bags I hurriedly went to my apartment home and told my husband. I made a non-emergency phone call to the police and was thankfully able to make a report of the incident because I was threatened as well as my property – just to have it on record in case anything should befall my vehicle for the insurance company should I ever need it. I plan to call the manager of our complex and inform her of what happened and that these people live on this property who threatened not only me but my property, along with a description of the vehicle. The only fortunate thing is that the vehicle stands out with its dark maroon color, the gold decor around the passenger windows, and its black windows – not tinted, literally black.
This is not the first time where I live that I have been shouted at and accused of “white privilege.” There have been many times and I am not counting. Too many. White people where I live are in the minority, there are plenty of African Americans, Hispanics, Indians, Pakistanis, some Asians, and some white people. Up until the pandemic, this was once a nice and quiet community. After the pandemic, into our now endemic – I find the new tenants that replaced many of those poor souls who lost their apartments due to losing jobs and not being able to afford to live here any longer – well, they rented to utterly low-class people with no character or self-respect. I have no problem ignoring such people. However, when you threaten people who have not given you cause you step over that fine line in the sand. One can no longer feel safe or secure where they live or places they frequent. In the D.C. Metro Area, it is becoming increasingly clear that the effects of Obama starting this “white privilege” nonsense and it branching out into BLM, and CRT is ruining the very fiber of our society and nation.
For me, I have never judged anyone based on the color of their skin or ethnicity. I have based what I know about a person on the content of their character – if they keep their word and if they are honest, or will admit when they have wronged and sincerely apologize. I have never cared about how much money one makes or their position or life’s work. There are plenty of successful rich people that are admired only later to find out they are scum. Bill Gates is a prime example of that as are many others.
Yet it is not even the left selling the narrative of “white privilege.” Some Trump supporters have begun a website promoting a White Privilege Card, which by the way they are apparently now “sold out” of at the Official Joel Patrick Store. I find this absolutely disgusting and playing right into the hands of BLM and CRT. This does not constitute change it embellishes race wars.
As to me, yes, I was almost accosted in my own complex parking lot trapped in my car without being able to move. I was assaulted verbally for no apparent reason as if any reason could be good – as it was uncalled for, and should never have taken place. It has left me unnerved and brought me to the conclusion that it is not safe for me as a “white woman” to go out alone any longer day or night without my husband. I would not call the U.S. the ‘land of the free’ any longer. I cannot carry a concealed weapon. If I do have a weapon, a gun, to protect myself it must be empty. That is not protection. However, my husband is a former military man and always thinks ahead and left a very lethal open knife with the handle up for easy access in the driver’s door sleeve for self-protection. That is probably not legal either where I live. There are few laws to protect our person.
In conclusion, if push came to shove, and thank God it did not – it was a vehicle trapping me in and later a verbal assault due to my being white – had it escalated and I was physically attacked – I would not have hesitated a minute to defend myself and use that knife, which is why I will not go out alone here again. We all are not safe. I no longer feel safe in my own nation. There is no safe haven for us any longer. One always asks why? Well, I say ask Obama why he told that first lie? White is a color and being white gives no privilege. Privilege is earned by your character, your work ethic, and how you treat others.
In American law, this is what privilege really means – privilege is a certain entitlement to immunity granted by the state or another authority to a restricted group, either by birth or on a conditional basis. Land titles and taxi medallions are examples of transferable privileges that can be revoked in certain circumstances. In modern democratic states, a privilege is conditional and granted only after birth. By contrast, a right is an inherent, irrevocable entitlement held by all citizens or all human beings from the moment of birth. Various examples of old common law privilege still exist to title deeds, for example. Etymologically, a privilege means a “private law”, or rule relating to a specific individual or institution.
So, forget all that for now – if you are white – the liberals, fake news, and their ilk will tell you – you have “white privilege.” Whites too are promoting this narrative demanding CRT be taught in our schools. Now, I was threatened yesterday while I was in my vehicle and verbally assaulted, yes, now you get it! Just because I am white. So I am calling it out for what it is – WRONG – and the corrupt Left just hate that word – WRONG!
