White privilege is complaining of “media bias” when a journalist decides to speak up against the inhumane and illegal treatment of asylum seekers in Australia. White privilege is then demanding the journalist be taken off the air for having such “disgusting” and “brainwashing” views.
i was babysitting a little boy and girl once and the boy asked me if i had a boyfriend and i said “no!! but i have a girlfriend!” and he said “like a friend thats a girl?” and i said “no like a boyfriend but they’re a girl instead of a boy! we still do couple things but we’re just both girls” and he said, without missing a beat, “oh ok! are you gonna marry her?”

Andrew Bolt infamously challenged Robert Manne to name ten ‘stolen’ children to prove the Stolen Generations were real. Manne ended up naming 260. That didn’t stop Bolt from continuing to claim that the Stolen Generations are a myth. Read Manne’s fascinating blow by blow. It contains excellent (but distressing) evidence on the Stolen Generations and a look into the bizarre-ness of Bolt.
The purpose of understanding your privilege isn’t to make you feel something. Not guilt, not shame, not anything else. It’s to help you understand that you have a set of things you take for granted that other people don’t have, so that you can change the way you act.
