Seriously. John Cole:

Speaking of White Privilege

Someone in the last thread mentioned white privilege, and I was reminded of something I meant to post a couple weeks ago. While I was doing my car search, I hit a lot of places to test drive a lot of cars even though I knew I was going to buy a Subaru. At any rate, I was absolutely shocked how many dealerships I went to, just walked in, said my name was John Cole and that I needed a car and was willing to spend up to 20k on a used one, but would prefer value.

Talked to them for a while, and at five different dealerships, without even showing a driver’s license, salesmen gave me the keys to a car and let me test drive the vehicles. On three occasions, they didn’t even ride with me- they just gave me the keys and slapped a dealer plate on it and let me drive off.

I’d like to think this is all because of the club tie, the firm handshake, and the easy smile, but I am almost certain it has something to do with the fact that I have blonde hair and blue eyes. It’s the little shit you don’t even notice about white privilege that makes it so hard for white people to recognize how fucking good we have it and how different our lives are from other Americans of different hues.

The whole experience reminded me of the Eddie Murphy SNL skit when he was in white face and went to the bank for a loan, and they just threw money at him.

Someone needs to tell John Cole that the Era of White Guilt is over.

If that had happened to me I would be surprised too, but I would not assume it only happened because I was white. But John Cole is a progressive, which means he has a special ability to look into the hearts of other white men and see racism.

I thought his post was the stupidest crap I had read all week until I read the comments that followed it.

  1. this white privilege/racism thing is passing over the left like a fever. Hopefully it will pass soon….

      Cole is so dumb he doesn’t even recognize obvious signs of the commercial culture he entered. He was an “up”. Every “up”, whether white, brown, black, tan, rich, poor, medium or whatever, is immediately classified by at least four financial sharks as to his potentiality to be “played”. He obviously was judged (almost instantly) by several concerns to be fatally stupid. Cole’s subsequent writings serve to confirm the accuracy of that snap diagnosis.

    Daily Caller:

    Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, is accusing members of Rep. Elijah Cummings’ staff of colluding with the IRS to investigate the conservative group True the Vote.

    “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional agency scrutiny, communication records between your staff and IRS officials – which you did not disclose to Majority Members or staff – indicates otherwise,” reads a letter sent to Cummings by Issa and five subcommittee chairmen.

    Issa and Cummings have battled over allegations that the IRS has specifically targeted conservative groups over applications for tax-exempt status.

    In Oct. 2012 Cummings, the Oversight Committee’s ranking minority member, opened an investigation into True the Vote. Cummings was concerned that the vote-monitoring group was engaging in voter suppression.

    Though Cummings has denied that his staff has contacted the IRS concerning True the Vote, Wednesday’s letter provides at least some evidence of a connection between staffers and the agency.

    On Jan. 25, 2013 IRS staffer Catherine Barre responded to an email request from Oversight Committee minority staff members. The staffers, Barre wrote to colleagues, were seeking “any publicly available information” about True the Vote.

    Barre forwarded the request to others within the agency, including staffer Holly Paz and Lois Lerner, the embattled ex-IRS official who has refused to testify to Congress about IRS targeting.

    Paz, who is currently on administrative leave for her role in the alleged targeting, asked other IRS employees to look into True the Vote.

    Lerner took interest in the request, emailing Paz three days later. “Did we find anything?” she asked.

    When Paz said she had not, Lerner instructed “check tomorrow please”.

    On Jan. 31, Paz obtained True the Vote’s IRS 990 forms and authorized their release to Oversight Committee minority staff.

    Wednesday’s letter also raised suspicion over similarities between requests sent to True the Vote by both Cummings and the IRS.

    Issa and his co-signers pointed out that within a span of five days in Oct. 2012, both Cummings and the IRS requested information about True the Vote’s volunteers and training methods.

    “This timeline and pattern of inquiries raises concerns that the IRS improperly shared protected protected taxpayer information with your staff,” reads the letter.

      This is the woman who was then harassed by OSHA, EPA, etc repeatedly at her business. The regulatory agencies had never contacted her before and were unclear why they were “raiding” her business. They found nothing and left. The agencies who were hassling her need to provide emails on why they repeatedly appeared at her business also for what appears to be no reason.

    While I look forward to seeing a female POTUS in my lifetime, I don’t want to see her elected BECAUSE she is a woman.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I don’t think Hillary’s going to win over the Miliennials who elected Obama twice. It won’t have anything to do with her gender either. It’s the party that promised them everything and delivered nothing …. could apply that to the other demographics that voted Dem too. Are the blacks better off now? Are the Hispanics? Are any of us?

      • dailypuma says:

        excellent analysis. The question is, what percentage does she have to win over. Obama won 43% of the white vote in 2008 to go along with 91 to 93%% of the african american vote to win. Hillary Clinton probably has a majority of several other demographics locked up and may not need a majority of millennials to win. Plus, millennials may just not vote if they are not happy with either party. The other thing to consider is Chelsea Clinton is a millennial and nobody knows how that will play out for 2016.

        • elliesmom says:

          Hillary Clinton probably won’t have the same turnout from the African American voters Obama had. The ones who do show up at the polls will give her a large margin, but after all, they called her a racist in 2008. Many will decide they’re “too busy” to vote. While her gender will be a plus for her with a lot of people, her age is going to be a turnoff for others. Expect a lot of comparisons to how old Reagan was. I’m not sure a “Vote for my mom” from Chelsea will help with that. The silly thing is a lot of young folks are behind Elizabeth Warren, and they are surprised to find out “she’s old”, too. What will get Clinton the nomination is the lack of depth to the Democratic bench. There really isn’t anybody else, but Hillary is going to look old and tired after a few months on the campaign trail. If the Republicans put up someone with “youth and vigor” who can keep himself away from the social issues and concentrate on economics, she’s going to be in trouble. But the Republicans don’t always “choose wisely”.

            She may look old and tired a few months into the campaign, but then again, she smoked Obama during the 2008 primary. Poor guy had to be carried across the finish line. So who knows how it might go.

            And for the record, drumming up Lewinsky, Mike, is what’s really old and tired.

        • gxm17 says:

          Also, I think a lot of the “progressives” who voted for Obama will suddenly switch to third party. I’m already seeing it on FB. People who have no problem ignoring that Obama (Bush v3.2) is firmly center right will have no problem jumping ship if Hillary tops the ticket. These folks are some of the most self-deluded, self-righteous sexists I’ve come across.

  7. jeffhas says:

    Jeebus, is this really what life is reduced to ? Fretting every day about every slight (perceived or actual), and dissecting the minutiae about said slights? Talk about analysis paralysis.

    Last time I checked, you only get one go ’round in this thing called life. It seems to me (but then again I’m a white male – with obvious privelege) that you can spend your time concentrating, advocating, speculating, worrying, exasperating (and a whole lot of other -ings)…. OR you can spend time living your life with family and friends and working to have a better life (and overcoming obstacles we all get in life – jeez, is cancer or heart disease racist too?) and enjoying this short time you have in this life with people you can love and have meaningful (if to no one other then yourself) relationships that touch people and leaves memories for all to remember when you are long gone from this world.

    OR… You could just be bitter, focus on the negative (perceived and/or real), and lose out on all the wonderful memories and relationships you coulda had – if only you weren’t so focused on the negative.

    We all have to overcome something… Sometimes more, sometimes less then others. So whattaya gonna do, spend your time whining about what you have to overcome? – or get on with your life and how to make it bearable/livable/better?

    Sheesh! Common Sense 101 needs to be a college course.

      Because you know women should have “choices” as long as they make the right choice. When they don’t, then they’re stupid and dumb. And making other women look bad. And heaven forbid they should enjoy being in a relationship with a man. Because all “PIV sex” (where do they get this stuff?) is rape. A woman who likes to cook and sew and take care of her children must be mentally ill. We should through her in jail and force feed her until she repents and recants.

    Since the Democrats are celebrating Civil Rights and LBJ this week, decided to take a peek at the law’s history…..those pesky Southern Dems almost ruined it for everybody….

    • elliesmom says:

      But the current “narrative” is that all of those Southern Democrats became Republicans – except, of course, they didn’t. I think Strom Thurmond was one of the few that switched parties. But Al Gore Sr., Robert Byrd, and the rest of the white supremacists remained Democrats. And a lot of ordinary folks down there who started voting for Republicans did it to get the racists out of office.

    • Somebody says:

      Talk about how the stupid burns, last night I followed a link Klown put in the last thread about Hank Aaron’s comments.

    Most Car Dealerships follow strict guidelines when it comes to their test drive policies because if they carelessly give out a car and something goes wrong and they did not follow protocol, their own insurance may not cover the damage.

    • elliesmom says:

      My husband’s license had expired, and the way he found out was trying to test drive a car. He insisted on seeing both of our licenses. We thought it was funny, but the car salesman didn’t. He was going to let us take the car out without him, but I think he was afraid I’d pull over and let my husband drive if he didn’t “supervise” us. We went to the DMV the next day and got my husband’s license renewed and went back and bought the car. But from a different sales person. Because the first guy didn’t acknowledge our presence. I hope it hurt when he saw us hand over the check for the car. You see, it wasn’t a car for my husband. It was for me. But the first salesman only talked to my husband. The second sales person was a woman. Who knew it was a “chick car”.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I bought my first car as a minor, so I needed my dad to co-sign the loan. I knew what I wanted after salivating over the new ’67 Mustangs on the lot, it was just picking the color. I was being totally ignored by the sales people (which was nice thinking back on that). Called Dad at work and told him I was ready to buy. He showed up in his work clothes…a USMC Colonel. All of a sudden, I was the most special person in the worrrrrld on that lot. Got a pretty good deal too 😀

        • elliesmom says:

          Several years ago I was taking an adolescent psych course. We were doing group work, and we had to describe the members of our group as cars. My group said I was a Volvo. Expensive, but reliable and good to have around in an emergency. I was so tired of being the responsible reliable person type I went out the next day and bought myself a little blue Mercury Capri convertible. I have driven a series of little blue convertibles ever since. This time I was determined to change the color, but the only car on the lot with the options I wanted was blue. So it’s still blue. But the cars have gotten more expensive over the years. This one is a BMW. And it sucks in the snow so I get to stay home.

      • 49erDweet says:

        Most dealerships have a salesperson hierarchy. Those “on the floor” are the newbies. Some, like the one who wouldn’t acknowledge you, won’t make it. It’s a cutthroat world. The customer is king. Or queen.

        • The Klown says:

          The newbies’ job is to show you around and get you to settle on a car and then they hand you off to a more experienced “closer”.

      That must have been in the works, since Colbert was likely in negotiations with Comedy Central, too. I suspect this is a bad idea. If anyone remembers, the second Late Late Show host was Craig Kilborn. He was also the first host of The Daily Show.

Ended up talking with them. Polite considerate kids.They cleaned up after themselves and were articulate and respectful. Many businesses in my area only permit 4 students at a time on their roperty. Malls are losing business because of packs of children running rampant. Refreshing to see a large group so mature. Know nothing about Mormanism but they appear to have a church near by and they are holding some big thing. Might attend. Ihave enough decency that if I go I will be an observer. I was very impressed and as I walked home kept wondering what the religion entailed. Watched the Kelley File piece above and the woman denied the honorary degree spoke about the attacks on Mormons in this country. Gonna see it as a sign.

  26. DandyTIger says:

    Could be silly, but worth it just to make prog heads explode:

    Quite a few years ago, I had the pleasure of watching the Dutch version of Survivor (Expeditie Robinson) with my feminist roommate. That particular season would have two islands, one populated by men and one populated by women. My roommate had been promoting that particular series to me and the other students in the house for weeks because it would show us, according to her, what a society run by women – free from the evils of patriarchy – would be like.

    The women settled into a routine as well. The hung up a clothesline to dry their towels, then proceeded to sunbathe and squabble. Because unlike men, women were unable to do anything without consensus of the whole group. And because it was a group of at least a dozen women, consensus was never reached. During the next few episodes, the women ate all their initial supplies, got drenched by tropical storms several times, were eaten alive by sand fleas and were generally miserable. The men on the other hand, were quite content. There were disagreements of course, but they were generally resolved.

    Eventually, the people running the program decided something had to change. In order to help the women out, three men would be selected to go to their island. In return, three women would take their place at the men’s island. The look on my feminist roommates face during this episode was priceless.

    • WMCB says:

      Anyone who thinks a society run by women would be paradise knows JACK SHIT about women. Both genders have their general strengths and weaknesses. We need both. We balance each other.

      Yeah yeah yeah, exceptions exist, everything is on a Bell curve. I know that. But general traits are general traits, and sticking your head in the sand and singing “LALALALA they don’t exist!” is asinine. Yes, they do. Men are not “better” because they are aggressive and problem-solving oriented, nor are women “better” because we tend to be intuitive and consensus-oriented. Both can be an asset OR a liability, depending on the circumstances.

      Balance. Yin and yang. Makes the world go ’round.

      • The Klown says:

        There is a feminist myth about an ancient Matriarchy, when women ran things and everything was peaceful and happy. Then the men took over and things got mean and violent.

        There is ZERO evidence of any such culture or civilization.

    Plus, I’m skeptical of this story in the first place — I can imagine one sales guy at ONE dealership forgetting to ask for an ID before letting Cole test drive a car, but THREE? Bull-fucking-shit, at least not at reputable dealerships as we’re talking major liability issues. Of course, this idiot Cole may have gone only to no-name “used car lots” with a pot head who lives on the lot in a van running them — I can see those guys not giving a damn about IDs. But Occam’s razor tells me Cole is lying.

        What is so funny is that his staff kept sending questions to Lerner, who in turn had IRS send out their questions to True the Vote. THEY DID NOT CHANGE THE WORDING OR ORDER OF THE QUESTIONS from Cummings staff who I doubt wrote them either. The IRS, including Lerner, just wrote it all up verbatim. That is how they got caught. They plagiarized Cumming’s staff to harass and hassle this woman. So when the emails came out it was obvious and they were caught red-handed. Lerner nor IRS even bothered to convert the questions into federal-eeze or IRS tax language.
