A black male, Hispanic female, half Japanese-half white female and a white male, walk into a comic strip……….
It’s hard to get wrapped up in privilege.
White dude checks his privilege and realizes he has none left.
So now he’s underprivileged. It’s the new normal.
Now where’s my free shit?!?!
OTOH, this redneck kid, just an hour or so from me, decided to take his back. “The Second Protects the First.”
Maybe there’s hope.
Zed has Sam. Privilege enough.
Zed is…… The most Interesting Man I The World!
Zed is…… The Most Interesting Man In The World!
I’m here all week.
Try the veal and tip your waitresses!
Zed’s got another drink, I see. The accident must have made him forget he’s been nursing one since October.
Just checked my Privilege. Looks like I’m a quart low.
What is with Zed drinking and striking “the Most Interestiong Man in the World” pose over the last couple of weeks? It’s like déjà vu all over again.
Maybe it’s the aftereffects of the accident. Affect Zed. . . affect Zed. . . affect Zed. . .
Not that he needs anyone to defend him … but … has no one else noticed that the level of the Goslings on ice* that Zed is sipping has g.r.a.d.u.a.l.l.y gone down?
‘Toon timewise the last week or so has happened in the same evening, at home, among friends and business partners.
Would you begrudge a friend his relaxation time?
* OK ok Fine. Substitute your favorite sipping beverage on ice … sheesh
On a subject brought up yesterday where I missed the comment posting deadline …

Just IMHO, there a lot of zero-information black voters out there. If Oprah recommended it, they’d vote for Adolph Hitler or Joe Stalin….
Actually “zero-information” applies to a lot of non-black voters, too, with the same Oprah caveat, or with the choices their Union suggests.
I really think we need the old “property owner” requirement for voting….
Agreed up to the emboldened part.
But what about those of us who refuse to “buy in” to the illusion of private property that the PTB use to domesticate the masses?
I say illusion because the truth is that all governments on this planet are still operating (and enforcing) the “Divine Right” concept wherein the King owns all of the land within his/her borders. One can purchase a permit to use a piece of land and thereby gain a subset of “priviledges” but the actual ownership remains with the govt.
Think not? Try going without paying your local, state or federal taxes for a period of time. There Will be an armed Thug (Thugs) on your door step with a note saying “Pay up or Get Out.”
Work for thirty years, make all of the payments, pay off the note and receive the “title” but it is still Not Yours in reality.
Taxes are theft unless they are completely voluntary. When was the last time you had and paid a voluntary tax?
Hint – Read the fine print on your Income Tax return. It says that you are “voluntarily” agreeing to pay the following amount etc etc.
So … back to the subject above, why does one have to become a financial slave before being allowed to vote on which Power Damaged Thug he/she wants to be the New Master for four years?
Military Service first? Let’s see … I will voluntarily serve the Leviathan for a minimum of two years active duty with a reserve period after just so that I can gain the ‘right’ to vote against the Leviathan. Yep that makes sense. ? ?
(Truth in posting I am a Navy Veteran of the Vietnam Era)
The real problem here is that government itself has become nonvoluntary.
It is now a ‘game’ wherein the powerful and wealthy get to configure the everyday actions of the masses so that the masses continue to fund their own imprisonment.
There is no cure for government short of its complete removal.
Self responsibility and voluntary associations of like minded individuals is the only real option that I had as yet read or heard of for this disease called gummint.
You will notice that I am Not holding my breath waiting for this to come to pass …
“have as yet read” not “had as yet read” silly fingers
I like the proper checking of my white privilege.
I always have appreciated that proper checking. I don’t think that I have ever had enough of that proper checking, and hereby formally request, nay demand, more. 🙂 I respond in kind.
