I don’t really understand how that is a question up for discussion on television news. I mean, even putting aside the gajillion ways that white people are privileged by, for instance, being able to think that whiteness is “normal,” studying world history from Eurocentric perspectives, and etc etc:
- Marijuana use is similar among black and white populations in the U.S., but young African Americans are more than THREE TIMES more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession or use than white Americans.
- Even after accounting for reasons like education disparity, geographical distribution, and occupation, there is a persistent wage gap: White people make are paid more than African Americans due to racial discrimination.
White privilege is a fact of every facet of American life. I realize I’m mostly preaching to the choir here, but this is not a political issue or a subject for debate. It is well-documented and irrefutable.
How was this an actual broadcast. ffs
Da funk, back / to-the punk / come on
Da funk, back / to-the punk / come on…
… Da funk-back-to-the-punk, come on!
(The prosody of Daftendirekt is simple, but blew my mind when I first heard it. How it begins with that muffled series of words and a 3/4 before speeding up and settling into the latter 4/4 rhythm so smoothly - a fantastic start to a fantastic album.)
