What White Privilege Looks Like When You’re Poor

Mychal Denzel Smith, The Nation, May 22, 2014

Inevitably, when you talk about white privilege someone will ask the question, “What about poor white people? What privilege do they have?”

{snip}

This week, the House Appropriations Committe released a draft of the 2015 Agriculture Appropriations bill. In it, $27 million is budgeted for a pilot program aimed at reducing child hunger in rural areas. “Sounds innocuous enough,” writes MSNBC’s Ned Resnikoff, “except the $27 million program was actually the committee’s substitute for a White House proposal which would have allocated $30 million to child hunger across urban and rural areas.”

Resnikoff goes on to point out that this doesn’t mean children in urban areas will be completely left out of hunger reducing programs, as the “federal government spends hundreds of millions of dollars on the Summer Food Service Program, which provides meals to low-income children when school is not in session and they don’t have access to free or reduced school lunch,” and that there are specific challenges that face rural areas with regards to food insecurity. However, “the House committee’s proposal is likely to help fewer people of color than the White House proposal. And while rural areas may be unique in terms of the challenges they face, they’re not where most of America’s hungry are concentrated.”

They’re also among the whitest. “The Appalachian region,” which is where this money would go, writes Talking Points Memo’s Sahil Kapur, “is also more white (83.5 percent) than the United States overall (63.7 percent), according to the Appalachian Regional Commission–and much more so than urban areas, which have a disproportionately high share of minorities.”

{snip} The seeming indifference toward black poverty, played out in their actions as elected officials, reflects the privileging of whiteness. It is indecent that any person go hungry, particularly in a country of such abundance. It is indecent to determine that some of those people are more worthy of our investment in their being fed than others. It is indecent to then pretend as if that’s not the case. All these indecencies add up to an injustice. We are a country that practices injustice as a way of life.

Yes, you can be poor and white and still benefit from white supremacy. That’s what privilege is.

  • If there was such a thing as white privilege, then there wouldn’t be an poor whites.

    • Alexandra1973

      I know that firsthand.

      There’s some interesting commentary going on over there. Unfortunately I’m banned from commenting, but…moohaha…

      Nice find this one, eh?

      • propagandaoftruth

        Yes NeanderthalDNA. I agree with everything you say, 100%. Keep up the good work and try to be nice. I should probably never post at this website ever again, so…

        Adios amigo!

        • connorhus

          I see what ya did there 🙂

          • NeanderthalDNA

            I think the secret is to really watch your p’s and q’s…and play to the weakness, of course.

            Funny thing is…I haven’t knowingly told a lie there yet. And I’ve been a very good boy. Killing with kindness.

            But again, I think I’ve stated my purpose and nature pretty openly and…still going…

            Is race realism beginning to break through to some grudging respectability?

            Post there. Anywhere else like. Everybody. Behave yourselves and represent well. Politely hammer it home incessantly. Engage the enemy with a smile and a sense of humor. Offer tentative olive branches and express hurt when rudely rebuffed.

            Just remember these two non-theistic satanic maxims and you might be ok (I’m not a Satanist but those guys have hit upon some useful bits of advice for those of us navigating this wicked old world)…

          • jane johnson

            I like to use what I call my “black conservative strategy”. It goes something like this…
            Lefty: Blacks don’t have the power/opportunity/resources that Whites do; therefore we must blah blah blaah
            Me: But what about Clarence Thomas?
            Lefty: He’s a self-hating Uncle Tom.
            Me: Guess you don’t like Thomas Sowell, Condy Rice, or Frederick Douglass either.
            At this point, Lefty will ALWAYS condemn the first two, but heap praise on Douglass. That’s when I spring the trap, and refer Lefty to his What the Black Man Wants speech, which is all about self-reliance, and leaving blacks to their own devices, to sink or swim, according to their abilities. Works like a charm. The speech is rather long, and the relevant parts are in the last paragraph.

          • I’ve tried that approach, but most libtards hate being bothered with facts.

          • jane johnson

            But if it makes them shut up and go away, especially on a lefty site, I consider it a win. Gotta take em where you can!

        • NeanderthalDNA

          I like you!

          Vaya con dios!

        • Frank_DeScushin

          propagandaoftruth, I read all of your comments on the original article. Fantastic job combating the anti-white ramblings with logic and fact.

          • propagandaoftruth

            Thank you for your support. I wonder what’s going on there? I believe there are cracks in the walls, Frank. You keep up the good work too and the inevitable will come to pass.

            Relentless, factual, polite, firm, proud. Let us go out into the webbytubey and blab a lot.

            I think it might work.

      • El_Baga_Doucha_Libtard

        Haha! That’s too funny.

        I get banned from places (and message boards) too.

        • NeanderthalDNA

          Yer pushing it over there, LOL…

          I’m trying to see how far it goes. Honestly it IS weird. They were pretty hardcore at that site not long ago. In the old days, those blogresponsepits were bursting at the seems with commentary.

          Interesting, eh?

          • El_Baga_Doucha_Libtard

            What? Did I say something on that message board that could be construed as being offensive?

            Liberals pride themselves on being open-minded and tolerant. How could the truth be offensive to such open-minded people?

          • NeanderthalDNA

            Ha ha!!!!

            I used to be one of, so perhaps I kinda…feel the old vibe a little, you know?

            On the one hand I take devilish pride in my treachery to treachery, but…

            Gotta remember – I was once a true believer too…

            Don’t be a worm, but represent well, you know? The phalanx must be disciplined. And have fun, lol…

          • El_Baga_Doucha_Libtard

            You were once a true believer of racial equality? I was too! It’s funny how that works out.

          • NeanderthalDNA

            I…always harbored reservations…but intellectually scaffolded them into proper place. Not that I wouldn’t get up on my high histrionic liblefty podium and spout out serious White razzin’ progressivism, now – it’s almost as necessary to be one of the popular kids over there as kicking Engleman is here!

            I was such a Baga Doucha Libtard, LOL!!! God it’s liberating to go back as I really am, you know?

          • connorhus

            Heh, your my hero. My problem is I am too much of a counter puncher so I escalate right up with em until I get banned.

          • NeanderthalDNA

            Ha ha – thanks!
            You gotta flow like water, around obstacles. Grasshopper, the libtard will come at you from multiple directions, in multiple styles, but eventually if you handle yourself well and flow like water relentlessly…
            Even the most condescendingly compassionate liblefty libtard will eventually blow a fuse and start calling you names…
            Everyone loses when they blow their cool. Look for typing errors and bizarre diction.
            Always, however, take the moral high ground, but not like a libtard – do so in a quiet and dignified manner, humble even… You do have the Truth behind you, after all.
            Use humor too, not too meany…
            Brain staple them.

          • connorhus

            I hear ya. Good advice. My trouble is the moderators always get me no matter what even after the liberals explode and I don’t 🙁

          • NeanderthalDNA

            Hmm…

            Mayhap the mods over there are partying and lax. Or, as noted in a previous piece here…maybe things are beginning to change…

            Also you do have to grease up and get a little slimy. By that I mean keep an eye out for weak ones, both ideologues and ideologically shaky and drip a little honey from time to time. If they slap you, they look bad.

            Play on their inherent guilt complex and whine about something that sucks in your life. Not too much, but enough to flip their hyper-empathy switch.

            So many things, so little time before I pass out…

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            Better to flow like molten Uranium than water, because you can burn your way through every obstacle.

          • NeanderthalDNA

            Not disagreeing, but if the goal is infiltration, you must be water, seep into every crack and relentlessly weaken the structural integrity.

            Then one fine day unleash the molten uranium to wash away the detritus and build again…

          • El_Baga_Doucha_Libtard

            That’s my problem too. I’m such a counter-puncher that, now I just start swinging right off the bat, since I know what’s coming.

          • Hallie Eva

            My experience in the arena with charging lions:
            One must make nice, while still making your point. If one is too smarmy, they see right through you.
            Buddy up with people, tell your story, the good, the bad and the ugly. It humanizes in such a way that you are not envisioned white sheeted in front of a burning cross.
            When some hardcore libs invariably go ad hominem, respond from your intellect, taking the high road, with care not to patronize, condescend, or cave. All the while keeping calm, intact emotionally.
            Always, and I mean always, spell check, watch your grammar and syntax, sound educated but not arrogant or self-aggrandizing. They love to think we are naziswhowanttokillsixmillionjews with bad teeth, bad breath, severe strabismus, who never read a book or attended school beyond sixth grade.

            It is a game I learned to play well at HuffPo.

          • Sick of it

            There are a lot of liberals in this country with meth mouth…

          • Hallie Eva

            Sick of it, do you mean mouth in motion, brain disengaged?

          • Sick of it

            That too, but I was specifically referring to bad teeth caused by meth usage. The disengaged brain phenomenon is more often attributed to smoking marijuana.

          • Hallie Eva

            Wonderful, Sick of it. My take on it was disengagement of brain related to the pathology of liberalism.

            That’s a great pic in so many ways…

            I’m pretty big guy with a much higher forehead than Mr. Valuev, about the size of the guy who defeated him, but lord I’d not like to be on his bad side, lol…

            Regardless, guys that big have physical issues as they age.

      “White privilege” is a matter of faith. The lefties can’t see it or touch it, but they know it’s there, like the Holy Spirit. I prefer an explanation more worldly and tangible. It’s called “black dysfunction.”

    • M&S

      I think whites have always been vulnerable, through their sense of individualism (not me, nuh-uh, no way am I -that- big a loser! Just keep me safe from any social obligations to the poor and I’ll be the one who does okay!) to what is now happening to us as hostile ethnies who at least think collectively, cohesively, enough to maintain a population growth rate constrain our hyper competitiveness through ‘social demands’ that we take care of their sorry asses or be (gasp) ‘racists’.
      You see, we are subconsciously vulnerable to the notion, not of a fair-fight victoryin a ‘rigged game’ condition against those less able to compete against us (because that is the essence of whiteness) but rather the /idea/ of racism as binding individual to group outcomes. Which is abhorrent to us because our group always stratifies itself around classes and feudalism as exploitation of ourselves.
      It is the root of our preference for self-success at the cost of all others that we know, bending a knee to someone else is guaranteeing -their- individual victory, over us.
      The death of nationalism as an extension of (unspoken) racial homogeny is thus the stripping away of the ONE ARTIFICE (as shield) by which we could unabashedly set our values ahead of other racial norms ‘for the good of _the system_’ by which we struggled to improve and sustain our individualism.
      Everybody wants the benefits of our system so we cannot pretend that it has not won the popularity contest but at the same time, we refuse to acknowledge that envy is it’s own danger and a refusal to breed with someone who encroaches on your space is ALSO, by definition, a loss of individual opportunism to the ‘fair shot’ chances of groups who play by tribal loyalties all the way.
      “You will give me a shot, my family, my extended family and everyone who looks like me too.” Or you’re a racist, tearing down The System by which individuals make a difference.
      Do you see the utter hypocrisy of it?
      Tribalists beat Individualists over the head with the rules of their own game and in adhering to the rules, we allow the game to be ruinously altered so that it doesn’t serve our Genetic Algorithm as individualists anymore.
      It’s insidious and it is evil. Such that only one group could possibly push for uncontrolled immigration in a borderless society to force it upon us, unasked and unwanted.

      I would love to see stats on tax revenue collected from Whites vs. blacks, and tax revenue SPENT on Whites vs. blacks. We get the bs about how there are more Whites than blacks on welfare, but that’s obviously because there are many more of us (for now). I want to see actual percentages.

      • Pax Romana

        Some years back David Horowitz addressed the black population’s tax input vs. the black population receiving government money. This was probably well over ten year ago. I saved it in my files all these years. I Google searched for the original linked source of the quoted info, but apparently none any longer exists. Here is the quote:

        “Here are the facts on welfare: Recipients of Aid to Families and Dependent children are 38% black and 31 percent white, while whites are 70% of the population and blacks only 12 percent. In one year alone blacks received $88 billion in welfare, while blacks paid only $13 billion in taxes to foot this bill. In short, blacks received a net of $75 billion in transfer payments in one year alone.”

        “This given the fact that Whites out number Blacks by a six-to-one ratio in the overall population. In short the monetary equivalent of a Marshall Plan is being transferred from White pockets to Black pockets every three years.” -David Horowitz

          Thank you, but I’m almost sorry I asked. It’s worse than I thought, and if the data are 10+ years old, it has to be MUCH worse now with the proliferation of alphabet agencies dedicated to the “underserved”. Still, thank you.

Note also that Mr. Horowitz did not address our cost of incarcerating the counterproductive ones.

        Given the enormous obesity problem many American blacks have, “hunger” does not seem to be an issue among them. The obesity rate among them, according to the Center for Disease Control’s “Summary Health Statistics for US Adults: 2010” (published in 2012) was 36.9%. Table 31, page 106. Only Amerinds, Alaskan Natives and Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders had higher rates, at 39.6% and 43.5%, respectively (Ibid).

        I appears that the term “white privilege ” has replaced the term “Disadvantaged” as in disadvantaged children.
        Just what constitutes disadvantaged and advantaged? Is there some type of chart the Marxist establishment has that we can see.
        The expression , the best red is a dead red is appropriate.

          I’d never hear that. I do remember the political slogan ‘better red than dead’.

    • thomasdosborneii

      ncpride–what you said is 100% true. I read that article and immediately thought “he really wants those white children dead”. All he cares about is how much the black people get (not much “equality” there, is there?), which will be without limit. And that’s the big trouble, they just keep wanting more and more and more and it doesn’t stop. Michelle Obama spouts Soviet platitudes and instructions to elementary school children (“Drag your backward, racist parents into the 21st century!”) while she lives in the White House and her husband was elected to the Presidency TWICE (and it wasn’t all black people who did that). It’s totally like that fairy tale, “The Fisherman and The Flounder,” where the fisherman’s wife will not stop demanding favors from the magic flounder whose life her fisherman husband saved. It wasn’t enough to live in a big mansion, then to become King, then Pope, and finally God…she just kept asking for more and more and more. Finally, on the last page, after the final demand of the wish-granting flounder, the fisherman came home to find his wife back to sitting in front of the seaside hovel where it all began. The magic flounder brought them full circle to the very beginning (not one bit of his largesse had changed the wife for the good or was ever appreciated). When all the welfare money runs out, that is what is going to happen to all the welfare recipients. Back to go, and let’s see them lift themselves out, this time.

    It is obvious that ANY amount of money spent on White people, even money spent feeding hungry white children is horrible white supremacy, racism even. That money MUST be reallocated to urban areas to feed the starving children of color, who already have free summer food programs. If that money is spent on predominately White children it’s showing indifference toward black poverty. Everyone knows that White children deserve to go hungry, because they are guilty of White Privilege.

This guy ignores the trillions we have spent trying to lift blacks out of poverty, and the fact that inner city schools have been turned into soup kitchens with free lunch and breakfast even during the summer. Heaven forbid poor whites get some money thrown their way, too. The poor white would gladly trade for the “poverty” of an inner city black in a second. The return we’ve gotten on the “investment” in blacks has been a net loss since day one.

    I’m sure there are some poor Whites that go hungry, but poor White people take care of there own. Where I grew up, the nearest neighbor was a half mile away, even though their driveway was across the road.

    Everybody had gardens, and everybody plied their extras on to the neighbors and friends. Sweet corn came by the paper bags full, as did zucchini, cucumbers, peppers, and tomatoes So their were always Mason jars of canned goods on the shelves in the basement. Most people hunted or fished, so their was always fish or deer in the deep freezer along with the side of beef we bought yearly. My mom made bread. Sour dough was kept in a cheese crock on the counter. She also made yogurt. We had bees and chickens. Apple trees, walnut trees, peach trees, raspberry bushes and blackberry bushes. One winter I tapped about 2 dozen sugar trees maples and made maple syrup – that was a lot of work for a half gallon of syrup.
    A study was done in West Virginia and it found that the most efficient manner to remove people of Appalachia from welfare was to make sure they had access to reliable transportation.

    • We grow tomatoes and peppers (a great jalapeno-bell hybrid) in half-barrels out front, along with mint and chives, though the landscaping screw appears to have pulled up my blackberry bush. My daughter and I fish, and we ate the area’s rabbits almost extinct several years ago. The rabbit population is recovering, but the pigeons have not. Dandelions are edible, so when the rabbit population was in serious air rifle induced decline here, we had plenty of those in salads. The neighbors constantly give us stuff they don’t want; Nora gave me most of a package of frozen hamburger yesterday evening. She’d got it for her son when he was last visiting, but he never finished it all, and Nora doesn’t eat beef.

      This is in a suburban townhouse complex.

      • ThomasER916

        At my home we have artichokes, avocados, basil, mint, persimmons, plums, rosemary, strawberries, and tomatoes. We have cans for years. We’re just finished off the arrabiata and marinara we canned from 2 years ago and the apples I canned 3 years ago. I’ve been canning and cooking with my italian family since I was a child. It’s second nature at this point. Years ago I didn’t plan on being a “prepper”, I just assumed everyone from a traditional family made their own pasta and canned their own fruits and sauces.

        I’m actually anxious for a total collapse. We have years of canned foods, grains, guns, and bullets; without even trying. Although it is a house and it is owned; so we’re stuck.

      We should be supporting those regions through identity, training and education. If the “gubment” tried to build housing for Negroes with the proper organization we could simply loot it of copper and destroy the machines.

These poor Whites would get White tax money through a “redistribution justice.”

  • Reverend Bacon

    This is one of the classic liberal failures. There is no evidence that any of the $100 trillion or so we’ve spent on blacks since the LBJ debacle made its way to appalachia; we spend trillions on blacks each year still. So someone throws a $30M bone- 1/100,000 of the amount spent on reparations each year- and they claim it’s unfair.

        In reply to your removed post –
        We could release our inner Cossack or our inner Viking, depending on one’s roots. Contrary to what some retards continue to say, Vikings were not neutered in the slightest after converting to Christianity. If anything, they become much more capable in the art of war instead of hacking anyone who annoyed them to pieces and causing endless blood feuds (it’s hard to form a strong nation/military like that).

        • Zaporizhian Sich

          Slavs carry Viking blood, and in fact Vikings left their genes, culture, law, goods, technology and cities all over Europe. Indeed Christianity made them more powerful because they had unified nations that were not wracked by brutal civil wars and blood feuds. That was why the Slavs were invaded and slain in huge numbers by the Mongols and other invaders. Their habit of fighting among themselves caused them no end of grief and suffering.

    Oh please spare me the USA being 64 percent White nonsense. The census counts anyone living on American soil as “American” even though there are millions who are not citizens. The 40 million or so Illegal aliens are counted as “American” and the millions of foreign nationals here on work or student visas are also counted as “American”.. Ironically, American nationals living or studying abroad at the time of the census are not counted. Only the race of actual American citizens should be calculated as the racial breakdown of America. The rest should be counted as foreign nationals living on US soil at the time of the census.

        When the Left starts screaming about more welfare spending going to red states they play their cards like they do with Education. What you really have to do to get the correct answer as to which states spend more overall Welfare dollars is combine Federal and State spending. You also must look at tax breaks given to Blue states ear-marked for welfare spending.

        This is another bait and switch routine the Federal government does. Most ports and export locations are in Blue enclaves but the production is done in Red States. This means the Blue enclaves become middle men and the Fed allows them to keep money if it is spent according to Federal Wishes.

        If you look at welfare cases per capita the list of welfare recipient states changes dramatically. It’s mostly a lot of smoke and mirrors to hide what we as a country are actually spending and on whom.

    White Privilege is White Man’s Burden. Whites must carry their burden and be grateful for it. Any complaint is racist.

    Poor whites have to be vilified because (a) they aren’t carrying their load, (b) they need some of that load transferred from their backs into their hands (c) if whites get the money, that means less for the blacks and (d) if whites start to get funding, it sets a dangerous precedent.

    Whites in South Africa founded a charity to support poor SA whites, those whose livelihoods had been destroyed by the black state. The government responded by requiring the charity also to support blacks, in order to be “inclusive”.

    White Man’s Burden is everywhere on the planet where white people live. As we increasingly become the people without their own land, the burden increases.

And the whole package proves that even poor whites are privileged, over people of color. .

  • To paraphrase this article a bit, setting aside the bazillions spent on the urban poor, which rural Americans, including poor whites, obviously would have no access to, and that it is only natural that politicians representing Appalachia would sometimes try to help their own constituents, obviously the real sin committed by the people of Appalachia is that they are “among the whitest.” Further damning Appalachia is that most of its residents simply struggle along quietly without needing to inflict savage violence and suffering upon each other and innocent passersby. Even stranger, Appalachian whites are not known for their fondness for periodically rioting, looting and burning everything around them to the ground, nor using the threat that they might someday do so again to extort billions more tax dollars, nor to use these and other actions and threats to bring about legal and de facto ‘affirmative action’/racial discrimination, like some exotic pest, snaking and slithering its way into every nook and cranny of what was once the world’s marvel of a middle-class-centered meritocracy, to create today’s borderless decadent violent simmering splintering multicultural carnival of the damned.

    The Nation has a mostly White (yes, mostly Jewish, which EEO counts as white) editorial staff. I’ve never seen a decent black male commentator, so they from time to time hire a bad one, like this kid.

    Diversity at the Nation is a drag on the quality of the editorial commentary, of course, like it is everywhere when merit is ignored for cosmetics.

  • Greg Thomas

    They ( diversity and their pimps) want Whites to die. Is there any other way to see it?

  • Conrad

    Even if this particular accusation of ‘white privilege’ could be disproven so completely that the anti-whites had to stop using it, they’d just invent some new lie. Genocide is what they are about, not truth.

    The author of that TheNation article forgot to watch “Last Chance High”, read welfare per-capita statistics by race, or even open the front page of WorldStarHipHop. That real issue is inferior culture and work ethic.

    I would like to see the difference between the costs of sustaining a military sufficiently strong to guarantee the import of cheap oil and cheap manufactured goods from slave state economies.
    And the cost of providing a welfare state of HUD and EBT and Medicaid and special education and A/A guaranteed access to jobs (as depressed wage levels) to illegal immigrants.
    Vs. the price to be paid for uplifting the worthless and genetically outmoded among us to a position of some social security. Not blacks. Not Hispanics. Just whites.
    I bet that social welfare for our own people comes up last and least expensive of all the conditional costs of being who we are in a world which envies and hates us at once.
    Remove two of the three ‘doing business’ prices and replace single-man wage slavery with supervisory control over robots and watch the work product grow to replace what is lost as a function of direct currency exchange under a perverse system of ‘virtual’ valuation of goods and services.
    If we insist on having micro populations of the very wealthy and advantaged ‘served’ by macro populations of the ignorant and class locked, we will, sooner or later, create a massive Olympus Envy which sees the upper echelons destroyed and the lower echelons lose everything because the society which no longer serves -them- cannot continue as an independent driver for social evolution.

    White people do not have privileges. What they have, they earned, and are foolish to give it away.

      White people built the country from East coast to West coast and all areas in between. It truly is “our country”.

    Isn’t it past time to remove ALL subsidies regardless who is receiving them? Let everyone stand on their own two feet. That goes for individuals, companies, businesses, unions etc.!

    Love it when Jewish publications address “White privilege.” Too funny.

      They hate us more than the Bantus and we think South Koreans are ungrateful.

      The Rosenberg’s and their tribesmen sure like to stick it to us because Rockefeller and Ford kept them out of Ivy League schools and country clubs.

      They are a treacherous bunch aren’t they?

  • jayvbellis

    The comments to this The Nation article are rather good. Kind of surprising the editors have allowed them to stay up.

    My comment that the article shows how the American LiB Leftist intellectual movement has changed from supporting disadvantaged Whites, white workers in the 1930s, to the current sad situation that the LIB Leftist elite hates poor a Whites, White workers, my comment received 11 thumbs up, no thumbs down.

    So, keep in there. There are small openings for us on the Left.

    Don’t write off the Liberals.

  • Saggin Gin

    The phrase “White Privilege” is starting to show up in comment sections more & more over the past few weeks. Seems like once the bumper lipped chicken bandits get a hold of a new phrase to bully the whites, it goes viral pretty quickly.

  • Mrfinoni

    Paradoxically even in the article he admits that additional federal programs provide hundreds of millions of dollars worth of aid to poor urban areas and yet still complains.

  • humura

    Seems I recall the Feds paying out huge sums to Blacks who simply claim that they might have been farmers had it not been for past discrimination. Little or no proof required. No need for hungry children. Just say you are Black and wanted to farm, and the Fed money rolls in. And there are so many Black privilege programs. Yet, as to be expected from the Left -wing Nation, when some small amount of welfare might go to whites, it becomes a crisis of white privilege!
    The truth is, poor and middle class whites are NOT privileged in the US; instead we face constant discrimination and are propagandized by white-hating elites in the academedia complex.

    “Inevitably, when you talk about white privilege someone will ask the question, “What about poor white people? What privilege do they have?””

    And as we discuss this…Obama goes on a “Support a Brother” or some such…for at ‘risk”…black kids only. Nice to see that there are no needy white kids or white kids at risk…must be that white privilege we hear so much about. Let’s toss another 50 trillion at the problem like we’ve done for the last 50 years…for the next 50 years…that OK with everyone? Good. That should “fix” it again.

  • Unwed negro mothers often lend their SNAP EBT cards in exchange for drug money. Giving money to irresponsible people doesn’t fix financial problems.

    And all the while these minority kids are getting fed at these free food programs, the parent(s) are still getting food stamps (aka EBT card) for feeding them……

  • Raymond Kidwell

    A lot of these articles don’t make a lot of sense. How could child hunger exist with food stamps, wic, free school lunch etc. all aimed at kids nation wide? Unless the parent is eating all the food and purposely starving their child then it doesn’t seem possible. Adult hunger I might believe but a child who gets free breakfast and free lunch at school, free food drop offs from wic in some cases and also several hundred dollars a month in food stamps being hungry?

    Here is a White man who helped write commie core and White Privilege propaganda.

    Teacher Admits He Helped Write Common Core To End “White Privilege” (video)

    conservativevideos ^

    A teacher told attendees at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics Monday night that he helped write the controversial Common Core education standards to end white privilege. Dr. David Pook, a professor at Granite State College and chair of the History department at The Derryfield School in Manchester, New Hampshire, argued in favor of Common Core. “The reason why I helped write the standards and the reason why I am here today is that as a white male in society I am given a lot of privilege that I didn’t earn.” Ironically, the $28,535 per year Derryfield School that Dr….

    On a related note: if you’re looking for a charity that largely supports White people, I recommend the Christian Appalachian Project (CAP). They’re a well run organization too.

    If you go to that article and comment, they delete it. Most of mine got deleted. I didn’t swear, I didn’t name call or anything like that, any oppossing view is deleted.
