Reverend Jesse Jackson Sr. is speaking out against Phil Robertson, star of A&E’s reality show “Ducky Dynasty,” claiming that Robertson’s comments to GQ reflect “white privilege.”

Jackson even compared Robertson to the bus driver who ordered Rosa Parks to move to the back of the bus in a statement obtained by ABC News:

We have written many times before about the “white privilege” industry, a collection of self-perpetuating activists and academics who, not being able to demonstrate racism to justify their salaries and conferences, invent it.

The lack of ability to prove racism becomes the best proof of racism.  It’s everywhere, unspoken, unseen, lurking behind...

As longtime readers know, we’re not big fans of the White Privilege verbiage, or the White Privilege consultant and pontificating class:

In an otherwise good article about the Oberlin racism hoax, Conor Friedersdorf uses the term “white privilege” to...

A massive racism hoax took place at Oberlin College in February 2013 in which two students made seemingly racist, anti-Semitic and other such posters, graffiti and emails for the purpose of getting a reaction on campus, not because they believed the hostile messages.  At least one of the two was an Obama supporter with...

Remember when Joan Walsh of non-tokenist Salon.com kicked off an intra-progressive Twitter war after writing:

“I deeply resent people who insist that white progressives who criticize Obama are deluding themselves that they’re his ‘base,’ when his ‘base’ is actually not white progressives, but people of color.”

Salon.com, which does not have a staff that looks like America, continues its branding as the place to go for lectures on White Privilege, Whiteness, and how race drives almost everything in America.

And it’s not just David Sirota.  They even have a “white people” tag.

In the wake of the Zimmerman not guilty verdict,...

No one cares about the skin color of the Boston Marathon Bombers except to push back against people like David Sirota of Salon.com who infamously hoped that a “white American” was responsible, and others in the media and left-blogosphere who were hoping that another Timothy McVeigh-looking person was the perp.

I’m sure the victims don’t care about...

Beginning Monday there had been a non-stop attempt to pin the blame for the Boston Marathon bombing on the “right wing” and Tea Party. 

It wasn’t so much an argument based on facts as a hope based on politics, most clearly by David Sirota at Salon.com, but he was far from...

A follow up to last night’s post, Salon.com ghoulishly race baits #BostonMarathon bombing with “white privilege” rant.

James Taranto observes,

The Privilege of Not Belonging

A theory of white racism against whites.

I’m not going to link to it.

It’s just more David Sirota link bait.

Forcing a rant about “white privilege” and white men into any situation, no matter how ridiculous, has become his schtick.

He did it for the Newtown shooting:

And now he’s doing it for the Boston Marathon bombing:

In one of the most snide and offensive columns written this year in The NY Times, University of Pennsylvania Political Science Professor Adolf L. Reed, Jr. called Tim Scott and other Republicans who are black “cynical tokens.”
