Leftist Website Demands 5% White People Tax
Because white people are obviously always the worst people ever, in an op-ed on a liberal website (or blog) called “WeSplain” it was demanded that white people (especially white men) are to pay a 5% tax.
What is this tax for? Quite simply put, it’s a tax to charge you for a trait that you have acquired genetically. I wonder where this type of segregation was seen before.
Maybe in 1896? Legal segregation began in 1896 when the Supreme Court sanctioned legal separation of the black and white races in the USA. Obviously, such laws have now been lifted, non-whites in America have the same rights are whites do.
The same applies to females, the bill to allow females to vote in the USA was only put through in 1920. However, now women and men have equal rights.
So why is white segregation now a neutral thought, whilst the thought of black segregation remains taboo subject? Likewise, whilst many women advise the segregation of men, just proposing that the wage gap doesn’t exist could get you fired.
The article mentioned is titled, “It’s Time for White People to Pay for Privilege: The Equality Tax,”. This argues that all minorities face economic disadvantages. However, with the way it is worded, it seems to point out that white people face no sort of economic hardship.
Because let’s face it, us white people only have to go to a grocery store, flash our white person card, and we get everything for free! (Note the sarcasm)
The reason for the tax proposal is due to “Racist employers, a disproportionate targeting of minorities by law enforcement, racial wage gaps, poor inner city schools”
“these all contribute to what is an undeniable reality for minorities,” the article claims.
Unfortunately for the writer, there is no evidence to support their claim. In fact, there is evidence to propose the exact contrary.
According to evidence released in November 2016 by the Crime Prevention Research Center: White police officers are not significantly more likely to shoot black suspects; body cameras have had little effect on decreasing police killings; the more cops at the scene, the less likely it is a suspect will be shot.
Doesn’t this seem mildly strange? It’s like the author of the article is begging for themselves to be exposed to some sort of segregation or unfair treatment.
