You do not owe anyone time or money for crimes committed by members of your race


Good question. To those much is given, much is expected.


I earned my privilege, I owe it to myself to save and treat myself well. I treat others well because that is what a good person does. No privilege involved here, such a racist concept.


So privileged, that you deny the existence....


This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.

I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community, and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.

I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no "brief candle" for me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.

I mind my own business


Wow- very interesting responses.


Surprised there are so many racists here. OP when you experience more of the world you'll discover that racism is not okay.


What privilege are you referring to

It all comes down to your faith, but the quote that I wrote is paraphrased from the Bible. The concept has been around forever and isn't anything new.

D3: not just race, but being born into a decent family, going to a properly functioning public middle and high school, being relatively healthy, etc.

We often do not know how much we have until we no longer have it, sadly

Just as the world doesn't owe you anything, you don't owe anything to the world.

My first response to this post was going to be that the answer fully depends on your faith and world view. I guess that these are these people's faiths and world view. Good to know.

@Consultant 1: I think racism is definitely NOT okay. I don't think racial privilege is a racist concept. Privilege does not discount personal effort and talent, but it is an underlying and sometimes subconscious theme that can either propel or hinder.

Mitt also wrote something about this. I hope more of them band together. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I don’t care that Liz Cheney is radically anti-abortion. I think I’d deal with that in the White House if the trade off is quashing MAGA.
