Currently streaming on Netflix’s is the show “Dear White People,” where Director Justin Simien explains what’s wrong with white people.
In a somewhat confusing interview that was published in The Blaze, Simien attempts to explain why black people can say things that white people can’t.
For example, it’s OK for black people to use the “n-word,” but if a white person uses the same word, then they are ‘racist.” See if you can follow his logic:
How many things do white people have?” Browning asked in response to whether or not the usage of the n-word by a black person is a double standard. “They have had all of the things — there is this one thing, there is this one word that black people took and used as a form of endearment, and it’s ours.”
“So much hatred behind it when it comes from the mouths of others,” Browning added. “And this is something that we’ve turned into a very special, casual term. Not to be used by everyone.
He goes on to argue that “because oppression is very real in this country,” white people can’t make jokes about black people.
Or, about this rather amazing twist of logic:
When a white person gets their feelings hurt by a joke that a black person might make about white people, OK, all right — people got feelings.
However, though Browning agreed that while everybody has feelings, black people can’t be racist. Black people can’t be racist. Black people can be prejudiced. They can be biased, but they can’t be racist, and why is that? … Racism is the oppression of a marginalized group in a society that’s based on white supremacy. If you are a white person, I’m sorry. You naturally benefit from white privilege.”
