The Spouse put a post on Facebook today about the annoyingly persistent whines you hear from inadequate GOP sheeple about how whites are being discriminated against (involving a racist SuperPAC – you can’t make this stuff up).
My brother rose superbly to the challenge:
My feelings about being a white, straight male in American society. I am in the most privileged group in the most privileged country in the history of the world. White men still control just about everything you see around you, one way or another. Things are not swinging to discrimination against white men in America. Things are swinging towards a more equitable society so that everyone has a piece of the peace and prosperity pie.
Women, people of color, and gays are all inching towards a bit more parity, but we still have a long way to go before they all get their fair share. Electing a black president is a big step for us.
Any time I hear some white, straight male colleague whine about being discriminated against, I just roll my eyes and think that at least your sex and race and orientation were never 3/5 of a person, could vote for more than the last 100 years, and could marry whomever you loved.
Preach, man, preach!
For a good stick poke at this and other GOP talking points, and for your general amusement:
