Check Yourself, Teresa Downs: There Is No White Privilege Here

Katie HopkinsShillman Fellow

“I have unfairly benefited from the colour of my skin. White privilege is not acceptable.”

So says Teresa Downs, Superintendent of Schools, District 74, British Columbia, Canada.

It’s a mantra repeated over and over in schools and college campuses in so many countries. On posters in corridors, and on pin badges issued by the students’ union reminding you to “check your white privilege.”

As we speak, university academics in the UK are being offered seminars about how to discuss the effects of white privilege, with titles like “Walking on the White Side of the Street.”

As if, somehow, the white side is the land of milk and honey.

In the UK, the only white privilege I know is working pretty damn hard in order to pay the highest rate of tax so that a vast swathe of lazy individuals can live for nothing.

And in other places too, being white is no picnic.

I think back to a few weeks ago when I sat with Peter and his wife on the floor of the place they call home in a white slum settlement just outside Pretoria, South Africa...

As more South African white farmers get chased off of their properties, will there be more forced into the cities where they also are not wanted”

It was only through “white privilege” (since the term itself is inflammatory, it’s perhaps better described as colonial privilege) that they ever felt entitled to farm that land on the first place. It’s only through a sense of colonial entitlement that they ever felt that that land was theirs to farm. On a purely level playing field, they’re illegal squatters on someone elses’ land.

South Africa is a prime example OF white privilege. They went in, built an affluent society, and only shared the prosperity with other white colonialists. Very little of it tricked down to the locals. The same is true in Canada, although “fortunately” for us, old world diseases took care of most of the locals beforehand – colonialism failed throughout the old world for that very reason. Had the wealth trickled down from the privileged overlords, the country probably wouldn’t have the problems it does. Start dismantling it, removing that privilege, and gee whiz, the privileged class is upset.

Teaching kids white privilege in schools is racist nonsense and should be stopped immediately. We can’t allow this race baiting in Canada. It will lead us down a very dark path.
Teresa Downs and others should be held accountable for any clashes due to their part in promoting this ill advised course of action. It is the definition of race baiting.

“Vancouver & Richmond, BC has a chinese privilege problem
Surrey, BC has a sikh/east indian privilege problem
Burnaby, BC has chinese & filipino privilege problem
New Westminster, BC has muslim/black privilege problem
Coquitlam, BC has korean privilege problem
North Vancouver, BC has persian privilege problem
Toronto, ON has muslim & black privilege problem
Mississauga, ON has muslim privilege problem
Scarborough, ON has sikh & muslim privilege problem”

Prime example of failed integration
Al this so called diversity has created ghettos with “their own kind”

Justin Trudeau and crew are responsible for this awakened racism in Canada, which is an import from the U.S., and Obama is responsible for the awakening in America. They should both be tried for hate crimes, because what they are doing is as poisonous and hateful as it gets. They are destroyers in the keenest sense. Evil supremacists, Racists themselves.

Tom Bradly i would pick a color different than anyone on earth so i would be the most equal of all.

If you could chose your colour, what would you pick?

I have only one word for the lefty idiots that believe this stuff.

Bullshit!

Otherwise all those schitte hole countries would have used the tens of billions GIVEN to them by the stupid white folks to improve their lives rather than continue to hunt down albino kids, chop them up in to pieces and sell them for good luck charms.

This kind of horrific anti white racism is spewed by treasonous maggots like Trudeau and his masters at the UN. It is certainly by design to generate hatred and destruction of whites
The biggest anti white racists are found on colleges and universities across the Western world and all across our political spectrum not to mention on the ridiculously racist CBC ( Caliphate Broadcasting Corporation )

My father worked for 42 years and raised two children and in the beginning I can remember him missing meals so the rest of the family could eat… He worked all his life and under those conditions so that he could have in the end a modest retirement before he died… If that ain’t white privilege then nothing is.!!

( Add sarcasm )

Karan Singh, excellent post.
commented 2018-03-12 17:29:09 -0400
White privilege, tell that to the street kid I buy a burger and coffee for every week when I go into town.

Good one Karan Singh.

There’s a privilege problem in Canada, alright.
e.g.
Vancouver & Richmond, BC has a chinese privilege problem
Surrey, BC has a sikh/east indian privilege problem
Burnaby, BC has chinese & filipino privilege problem
New Westminster, BC has muslim/black privilege problem
Coquitlam, BC has korean privilege problem
North Vancouver, BC has persian privilege problem
Toronto, ON has muslim & black privilege problem
Mississauga, ON has muslim privilege problem
Scarborough, ON has sikh & muslim privilege problem
Let’s address the privilege issue in all these places and be fair to other races/ethnicity living in those communities.

The UN is feeding money for our destruction through the unions. And very likely it is our own money too!

Get all the Marxists union goons out of the educational system.

Sadly what is happening in Africa is what they are starting here with white privileged. It’s all about making everyone hate white people, so that they can take what we’ve earned, and very likely instilling the thoughts of murder, due to envy and hatred, in those who don’t have a functioning conscience. This is what Hitler did to the Jews, and what Turkey’s Erdogan is doing to the Kurds.

Robert – Rex Murphy certainly nails the truth in this article.
commented 2018-03-12 15:45:17 -0400
Rex Murphy over at the Nasty Post says that “The contemptible concept of white privilege is just ugly, angry racism.” Pretty much sums it up don’t you think?

As more South African white farmers get chased off of their properties, will there be more forced into the cities where they also are not wanted. I have no doubt that some see this as tit for tat. ‘Its whites turn to suffer’ or some dumb thing. Is this what Canada wants to promote? We have to do something about the Teachers unions in this country. They are poisoning our children. There is a simple way to stop racism before it becomes systemic ( it is not and never has been systemic in Canada) and that is to stop calling Canadians racist. Their plan for Canada is to make racism a problem, We have to stop them.

Apparently many parents both native and white are against this divisive campaign.

Thought…..
All of these people saying “white privilege” can go FUCK THEMSELVES!!
There is no such thing
These are the lowest denominators in humanity and continue to spew this crap to divide society which isn’t going to work BUT it will piss people off to the point that they start standing up and doing something about it, like firing Teresa Downs for being too stupid to have that position. The same goes for the rest of the morons out there like the MSM and University Profs that spew this hate…….tic toc, tic toc, your time is almost up.
Im white, I did not come from privilege, neither did my parents who worked their asses off to make something of themselves after coming to this country many years ago with NOTHING but 2 suit cases and a little cash in their hands…….NOT PRIVILEGE, IT WAS EARNED

Brian Smith, I’m not surprised she got all pissy…this is the response of a supremacist who doesn’t like to be confronted with the truth.
commented 2018-03-12 14:52:23 -0400
It’s called White Exploitation and there is no privilege in it. I was recently called white privilege by a brown person, at a hospital fund raiser of all places, I then returned the favour by calling her a brown racist. The irony was lost on her as she got all pissy. Truth hurts.
commented 2018-03-12 14:51:51 -0400
I saw that article in the Vancouver Province newspaper and I remember saying to myself: Why doesn’t Teresa Downs quit her job if she got it because of white privilege. That would seem to be the right thing to do. But no way is she going to resign her comfortable job and give up all the high salary in a rural part of BC where such jobs are not that rare.
