So a few days ago me and a friend were having a conversation about how some people are racist because they don't like how the white man is in charge. My view on the subject was, yes while white people have been historically assholes it shouldn't justify hate towards the whole group of people. Then my friend (who is white) says "Oh yeah, I hate how people think all white people are pushy and entitled. Like I think it's much worse to be the person blamed for owning slaves then actually being one." and that is where our convo stopped because I told her we should change the subject to avoid a heated debate.. This brought me to thinking that some people are so ignorant to the privilege they have. The legal system is set up to oppress certain groups of people for being a certain way (looking too black or suspicious, being too poor to pay bills) but no one can get arrested for being too white, rich and privileged. Even when Caucasians are arrested or slapped with some jail time, they always feel that he is in some way not wrong for what he did. When the batman shooting thing happened, on the news, they went on about how stress from school could have made him crack, and that despite his crime he was a straight-A student destined for great things and all this shit that had nothing to do with what he did. When those boys were arrested for raping that girl, the media dared to say that she ruined their lives and that what they endured was worse than the person who was actually raped.. There are clear groups in society that get special treatment and privileges that other's don't get. And the fact that many people are so oblivious to how there is a crystal-clear-to-see patriarchy/social hierarchy is beyond me. Seriously, I have had people call me a crazy feminazi because I've pointed out easy to understand ways that society discourages anything feminine or fits a western beauty standard or I've been called racist because I honestly think that our government is unbalanced in how it treats certain groups. Why can't people wake up and see that America is full of horse shit? Although you can't expect the majority ruling to realize they are the ones ruining America.. Anyway! This is what people would call a radical view on things. I don't think the way I feel is radical, I feel it is the cold hard truth and you can't tell me otherwise, in fact my views would match up with maybe someone who calls themselves an intersectionalist or an intersectional feminist. If you don't know what that means then look it up and get back here and tell me how you feel about it. Do you think that there are clear oppressed groups and something must be done?
