A new video showcasing one of social justice warriors' favourite terms – white privilege – has taken the internet by storm.
Chicago Theological Seminary (CTS) uploaded the video to YouTube on February 1 and has been panned by users. It currently has 61 likes and 204 dislikes.
In the video, a black couple give a white male special glasses that supposedly show him life through the eyes of a black person. People react to him differently – smiles turn to snares, street names invoke slavery and a taxi driver ignores him. Which is really just another reason to go with Uber over the taxi cartels.
According to the CTS website, “the mission of CTS is to work towards greater social justice. And nowhere is this more needed than in the area of race.”
It continues, “To this end, CTS has created a web video to shine the light on White Privilege. We believe the racial divide will only change when the collective “we” understand the concepts of privilege and begin to identify and correct the systems that advantage one group over the other.”
Except for the fact the video doesn't show how affirmative action gives certain people an advantage. Such as when the Department of Homeland Security offered employers cash if they hired illegal aliens over citizens.
Perhaps the most telling scene in the video is when a sign saying “Jefferson street” turns into “slave owner” when the glasses are put on.
If that's how black people actually see things, no wonder they call for things such as schools to be renamed.
Let's call these glasses what they are: social justice lenses.
We can't wait for the parody video.
