White Privilege


Recommended Posts

Before Floyd's ghetto lootery, this happened. Crickets chirped.


  • Edward Bronstein, 38, died March 31, 2020 in Pasadena less than two months before George Floyd died in Minneapolis
  • Footage of his final moments was released by LA cops on Wednesday after his family sued to see the harrowing video  
  • He was pulled over for suspicion of drunk driving and police were forcing him to give blood for a sobriety test
  • His family sued for excessive use of force and violation of his civil rights
  • Video shows Bronstein being forced onto a mat in the police station's garage while handcuffed then five officer kneel on his back as they extract blood
  • He screams 'I can't breathe' 11 times before he eventually falls silent 
  • The California Highway Patrol fought the release of the video tape, but a federal judge ordered them to do so
  • Criminal justice experts say the tape shows a callous disregard for human life

Over seventeen million white Americans live in poverty versus over eight million blacks.  These whites comprise what is by far the largest group of impoverished Americans.  Obviously percentage wise the statistics appear very different (10% of whites versus 21% of blacks).  But, my point is that white privilege is a complete myth (especially from the point of view of seventeen million poverty stricken white Americans).
