    Most whites at USMB have this belief.

    "Recent social psychological research, opinion polls, and political movements, such as the Tea Party and the candidacy and election of Donald Trump, have highlighted an increasingly widespread sentiment among white Americans that they are a structurally oppressed racial group. In spite of persistent socio-cultural and political economic structures of white supremacy, real racial inequalities that serve to privilege rather than oppress white people as a group, a politics of aggrieved whiteness has become increasingly prevalent. Aggrieved whiteness is a white identity politics aimed at maintaining white socio-political hegemony through challenging efforts to combat actual material racial inequality, while supporting heavily racialized investments in policing, prisons, and the military, and positing a narrative of antiwhite racial oppression loosely rooted in an assortment of racialized threats."

    Aggrieved Whiteness: White Identity Politics and Modern American Racial Formation

    So to be blunt, this is fiction whites created to maintain white socio-political hegemony or white leadership and dominance over others. It is based in a belief of entitlement

    White people are banding together for their own safety.

    It's about time.

    One mistake the Left has made for generations is deciding that it's easier to bring someone down than to raise and maintain expectations of others.

    This mistake, this mis-reading of human nature, predictably led to increasing animosity and resentment within much of America's white populace.

    That animosity and resentment increased and increased over time, and ultimately boiled over in 2016, leading to the election of Donald Trump.

    So indeed, the Left is complicit in this man's presence in the White House. Irony of ironies.

    This comment is so wrong the even if I gets corrected I won't be right. So read this again so you undrstand how wrong you are. I'm eve gpig t bral hisdwn so it's ase fr you o rad.

    "Recent social psychological research, opinion polls, and political movements, such as the Tea Party and the candidacy and election of Donald Trump, have highlighted an increasingly widespread sentiment among white Americans that they are a structurally oppressed racial group.

    What is his sentiment based on?

    In spite of persistent socio-cultural and political economic structures of white supremacy, real racial inequalities that serve to privilege rather than oppress white people as a group, a politics of aggrieved whiteness has become increasingly prevalent.

    What whites are aggrieved about when you look at reality, is fake news.

    Aggrieved whiteness is a white identity politics aimed at maintaining white socio-political hegemony through challenging efforts to combat actual material racial inequality, while supporting heavily racialized investments in policing, prisons, and the military, and positing a narrative of antiwhite racial oppression loosely rooted in an assortment of racialized threats."

    So again, to be blunt, this is fiction whites created to maintain white socio-political hegemony or white leadership and dominance over others. It is based in a belief of entitlement.

    So? I am right in what I said to you. Your comments were stupid and not based in fact.

    Why in the world would I bother?

    No proof is ever good enough for a True Believer.
