I know this is a divergence from the ongoing Carolyn Bryant case, but this story is so insanely ridiculous that I just have to bring it up. So this ultra-right-wing Filipina-American woman was in Alaska over the summer and she was swerving on the road. The cops pulled her over to see what was happening and she got out of a ticket because she flashed a white privilege card to the authorities which made them laugh and let her off the hook. I wish I was making this up and let me repeat this. A woman who is clearly of Asian descent and has a visible amount of melanin got away with a traffic citation because of a white privilege card! The level of stupidity and hypocrisy is over 9000. Sure, the cops got suspended since this was caught on film, but this is pure insanity on so many levels. Man alive, I have a white dad and this woman has my skin tone more or less, and I know for a fact I wouldn’t get away with it if I was in her situation. I could also make a joke about how the Fox News-watching types who normally don’t believe the concept of white privilege exists suddenly can buy a card to see if they can get out of a ticket or potentially jail time depending on how bad the crime is. I hope she tries that again in another city or state and the authorities deny it. The card itself wasn’t subtle with the humor with the “trumps everything” slogan and it’s good from birth until death. She better not be crying when she gets her wake-up call that she isn’t of the Caucasian persuasion in America. Don’t misconstrue what I’m saying. I’m not saying everyone who’s Filipino much less in the Asian community has that mindset, but someone like her should seriously know better in this racially-tiered system in America. This situation is so maddening and I wonder if others have tried to do the same thing.

Alabama teens want Black people in concentration camps. How despicable!
[Warning: Video contains strong language, racial slurs, and genocidal waxing]
It’s just another day in America and it involves a story that’s more common than you think.
In Birmingham, AL, some stupid teens from Spain Park High School decide to video a conversation where they want all Black people to die in concentration camps. Do I even need to say how sick that is even as a joke?
America has been racist long before 45 was in office and it’s starting to be much more overt. While I do agree that The South is more overt about racism, it can be upfront sometimes in the North, too. Trust me, I’ve been called racial slurs on BOTH sides of the Mason-Dixon line, even though he is right about Yankees being more coded with bigotry (and this is coming from a Midwesterner).
Phil was also right about biracial people (in this case, those who are Black/White mixed) being seen as non-White. Trust me, I’ve had my wake-up call on that matter when I was much younger and a lot less conscious about these intricate matters. I seriously doubt they’ll get punished so severely, but they totally deserve it.
I’d also like to add one point in that video by saying that Black people have been in concentration camps before. The most obvious ones to me are The Devil’s Punchbowl in Natchez, MS which happened not long after the Civil War and Shark Island in Namibia. The latter was carried out by Germany’s 2nd Reich and some of those same people would also be indirectly and directly involved in the Holocaust, too. I actually talk about this matter when I reviewed the Namibian Genocide & The Second Reich documentary on Iridium Eye if you want more details on that matter.
Seriously, those teenagers are evil and I know that they know better. I would bet you money that if some Black kids were talking about doing they same thing to their Caucasian counterparts, you know they would be expelled and possibly jailed for a video like that. No one should ever have to go through genocide, and it sickens me how people make jokes about ethnic groups who’ve faced it.
