As soon as there was danger white supremacist turned into a cry-baby.
Riot in Charlottesville was a violent horror. But at least one person was there for the sheer joy of being offensive.
The brief interview, which can be seen below, took place after the protester tore off his hat and white polo shirt as counter-protesters approached him.
Can you feel the irony? A racist can turn into a peaceful citizen by simply taking off his shirt. While black people can’t simply change their race…
The author of the video, C. J. Hunt wrote about it: “I'm a person of color, my identity is not a uniform I can take off when I am feeling unsafe…”
The video is a perfect portrait of white privilege. And the kid doesn’t even try to change it, because he likes it and enjoys “the white power.” “White privilege isn’t just an easy bank loan or the cumulative effects of discriminatory housing policy. It's also the privilege to disappear. The privilege to terrorize a community and return to your regular life with the ease of peeling off a polo shirt. The privilege to come to someone else’s town, invoke the symbols and slogans used to terrorize Jews, African-Americans, and countless other races in history’s darkest chapters, and pretend it’s simply your way of showing ethnic pride. It’s the privilege to engage in terror “for fun,” and the privilege to walk away.” - C. J. Hunt says. And we can’t but agree with him.
