During the Democrat presidential debate in Detroit Wednesday night, candidate Kirsten Gillibrand thought it would help her campaign to lecture white Americans about their purported racial privilege.
“I think, as a white woman of privilege, who is a U.S. senator running for president of the United States, it is also my responsibility to lift up those voices that aren’t being listened to,” she condescended. “I can talk to those white women in the suburbs that voted for Trump and explain to them what white privilege actually is.”
“When their son is walking down a street with a bag of M&M’s in his pocket, wearing a hoodie, his whiteness is what protects him from not being shot,” Gillibrand claimed, hyping the dangerous lie that there is an epidemic of innocent young blacks being targeted for their skin color by homicidal, racist police officers.
“That is what white privilege is today,” Gillibrand proclaimed. In fact, “white privilege” is a subversive concept drawn from Critical Race Theory with no real-world validity, intended to exacerbate racial resentment and guilt. And every Democrat candidate promotes it.
