White privilege update: white people breathe cleaner air

The EPA is pushing for more again?  :shrug: There is always a reason behind these talking points.

Of course non-whites tend to breathe less clean air. They live in cities. White liberals live in neatly manicured, spacious suburbs with plenty of trees to filter the air. And you rarely see them offering to help out on a personal level.

I am a fan of Big Brothers, Big Sisters. Know a fair number of people involved - they counsel and guide kids, take them on trips out of the city, teach a bit about life, small presents - stuff like that (sometimes stand bail  :laugh: ). Every single one of them is conservative. There is the odd liberal who likes to run things, but the nitty gritty is done by hard working conservatives.

Notice how few non-white people (other than natives) you see out in the rural areas.

They are invisible. They are usually VERY conservative, so never get mentioned.

Speaking only as a white man, I do believe I'm entitled to cleaner air.  Now blow me bitches!   :tongue2:
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

As far as I know, I breathe the same air as everyone else in this city.  I don't believe there are clouds hanging over the homes of blacks in this area spewing dirt and they breathe the same air as I.  My son has a home in a very diverse area of Philly and I have never seen signs that say "whites only air."  My daughter lives in Chicago and as far as I know there isn't special air for her.   What am I missing?  :shrug:

White guilt. It comes with a free side of cognitive dissonance and a large cup of self loathing.

Darn that Festinger for coming up with cognitive dissonance.

Exactly.  It's even more noxious than German guilt, and they, at least, have a little closer connection to what they still feel guilty for.

In the latest round of Liberal Lunacy, the Think Progress group now says that white people breathe cleaner air than non-whites.

Well I pay taxes, I SHOULD get cleaner air!

I'll bet we get cleaner water, too.

It's all an elaborate game to keep the masses placated and unaware of the real issues.

Gave up drinkin' that stuff a long time ago. After one has been attaked without provocation by blacks, more than once, one begins to learn. I post from the position of being a racial realist, and accusations of "racist" fall off me like water from a duck's back. I don't believe in "multicultural" or multi-racial societies, and I'm not going to be changin' my mind about it. Whites have been browbeaten and "racis'ed" into submission for long enough. Frankly, I welcome the reality that the Obama presidency has awakened many others to this, as well...

White Privilege Update: White people breathe cleaner air.

I'm so conflicted.

I own an Aller Air 6000 whole house air purifier, but the census people correct me every time that I try to mark "Caucasian" on their forms.

You are being targeted because while you get polluted air out of your house, it is going to eventually work it's way back to those who don't have clean air.  Its kind of like the IRS targeting conservative groups (and "select" individuals" I assume).
