Tucker Carlson: Pointing out my ‘white privilege’ is a ‘racist attack’

By David Edwards

Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Sunday said that liberals were making a “racist attack” by pointing out that “white privilege” exists in America.

During an interview on Fox News, Carlson noted that conservative columnist Kurt Schlichter had been criticized for a recent column claiming what people thought was white privilege was “just me being better than you.”

“I mean, it’s silly on its face,” the Fox News host opined. “Some white people are privileged, some aren’t. Some black people are, some aren’t. It’s strikes me as, by definition, a racist attack in that it’s making a generalization — a negative one — based on skin color.”

“Absolutely,” Schlichter insisted. “Absolutely, it’s un-American and immoral. It makes you forever and forever stuck in one category.”

1. Of course Tuckie would be the first to point out that minorities are "privileged"

by getting all that free stuff that "liberals" give them all the time.

And in his mind there would be nothing "racist" about him pointing that out.

2. Let's See?

So, pointing out that you are ahead in life, due to racism both past, and present, for centuries in fact, is racist?

Then you claim that the racism enacted giving you that "white privilege," doesn't matter, only that pointing out you, and many like you are ahead now, have great fortunes even, from MASSIVE slave labor, never compensated for, for centuries, does in no way matter in this debate?

Nope. I'm not buying, as it's the logic of a selfish idiot, who won't accept the reality of things, and uses twisted FOX-logic.

6. Race is a category that people are put into

Where ever you go, people will see you that category before they know you. In post cases, regarding power and privilege, "white" is better category to be in for race than the others.
