Dear white women,
I’m growing more disillusioned with this band of self-serving prima donnas. We can agonize for eons over how under-privileged we are when competing against poster boys of white male privilege, but we must also own up to our own flaws if we expect for our grievances to be taken seriously. If we do not confront our own privilege, we will be nothing but hypocrites. The privilege flaunted by white women is like cloying perfume. I get a nauseating whiff of it every day, but the offenders don’t seem to realize when they have run afoul of decent behavior.
In this diatribe, I must first address white women who needlessly call the police on black people. You must realize we are disproportionately privileged in having a law enforcement that protects us and responds to our every complaint, even the baseless ones. Our exchanges with police are much more respectful and far less likely to end with us getting killed. Let’s try not to draw any more scrutiny to people of color going about their daily lives. They are targeted enough already.
Next, stop making everything about you. When taxi drivers honk their horns at you, it’s not because you’re attractive; it’s because you may need a ride. Be mindful that you’re a first-world guest in a country full of third world immigrants. Refusing to tip the man who takes out your garbage is frowned upon. Complaining about your house cleaner is also a sign of extreme entitlement, and it makes you sound like an insufferable spoiled brat.
When the ladies at The View are mourning the tragic loss of eleven worshipers killed in a synagogue in Pittsburgh and fretting over the direction our self-destructive country is headed, don’t argue that you’re a responsible gun owner. This isn’t about you, Megan McCain! You had America's sympathy when your father died. Now pay the same respect to other people who have suffered a tragic loss.
Sometimes, we can all be out of touch. Let’s just realize when we make mistakes and own up to it. This is not bowing under pressure of political correctness. It’s called being a good person who cares about others. Step down from your pedestal and come back down to earth.
