Bill O’Reilly “does not believe in white privilege,” saying it’s a “big lie that is keeping some African-Americans from reaching their full potential.”
Now back to reality:
- One in 3 black men can expect to go to prison at some point.
- A black college student “has the same chances of getting a job as a white high school dropout.”
- Media cover 19.5% of cases with missing African American children, while 33.2% of missing children cases involve black kids.
- At least “4 million African-Americans and Latinos experience housing discrimination each year.”
- While black Americans make up 14% of monthly drug users, “they are 37% of the people arrested for drug offenses.”
- We could go on and on and on…
Yes, this is the same multimillionaire who "exempt[ed]" himself from “that white privilege banner” because he used to “paint houses” and “cut lawns.”
This expired jar of mayonnaise does not surprise anymore. I expected him to release nonsensical commentary on the Ferguson/Michael Brown case.

white girls who want my culture’s bindis and saris and henna
take my skin colour too
and my dark brown lips
take my self-hatred because i don’t fit into the euro-centric ideals of beauty
take the oppression too

Second, I open a book and learn that there is nothing else in history than the effect of the treatment white people have done of every non-white in the world—and all due to white supremacy.
Human Resistance (1998-2010) - Palestinian Artist SAMIRA BADRANIn this series of photographs, Samira Badran studies the mannequins that were made in China but have became a phenomena in the Jerusalem scene. She is interested in the manner in which they adapted to what she calls the “Jerusalem Syndrome”, and how they have adopted the physical state of deterioration that surrounds the city, complimented by emotions of sadness and depression.
Their Aspect is a testimony to the harsh economic reality and the confinement of the Palestinian people. Their presence for me is a metaphor, reflecting the reality of our situation.
