Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand, a New York Senator running for the White House, didn’t help her polling numbers with the insanely irresponsible comments she made during last night’s primary debate.
She didn’t want to let Kamala Harris and Cory Booker hog all the glory just because they’re people of color. “Privileged” white women can tackle racism too.
“I don’t believe that it’s the responsibility of Cory and Kamala to be the only voice that takes on these issues of institutional racism,” Gillibrand asserts.
“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 believes she only got where she is today because she was lucky enough to be born white. Hard work had nothing to do with it. Her creamy white skin opens each and every door. She feels personally responsible for all the suffering of every minority all throughout history.
Not only is she responsible, she knows just what to say to all the Trump loving white suburban soccer moms to get them firmly behind the Democrat agenda.
“I can talk to those white women in the suburbs that voted for Trump and explain to them what white privilege actually is.”
Gillibrand lives in a world where every person of color takes their life in their hands daily, unable to walk down a street without being gunned down in cold blood, while white folks carry a magical shield of protection.
“While 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.”
White people don’t need to hesitate for a minute to walk up to any doorway after dark in Detroit or Baltimore. If a white teen’s car breaks down, they can bang on any handy door and expect help. For a black person to try that in Omaha means instant death, Gillibrand warns.
“When their child has a car that breaks down and he knocks on someone’s door for help and the door opens and help is given, it’s his whiteness that protects him from not being shot.”
“That is what white privilege is today,” the Senator declared. “I have benefited because of my whiteness, and that’s just a fact.”

Political commentator Gabrielle Seunagal made some interesting observations. The left is virtually unanimous in believing that “race plays a pivotal role in someone’s quality of life.” What they are really saying with that statement is “that people of color are not in control of their own lives.”
The right-wing opinion is exactly the opposite.
“The right-wing overwhelmingly believes that anyone in America can rise via hard work and smart choices. While this outlook conflicts with progressive narratives, its undertones affirm that all individuals maintain control of their lives.”
