With all the talk of civil rights and freedom the past couple of weeks I thought it would be interesting to discuss the most hated individuals on the planet. Now we all know that Africans and their descendants are the most discriminated people on the planet going on 500 years strong but they are not the most hated. No that honor goes to the American White male.
Now I know a few expletives have been uttered at this point by a few people but hear me out. It could be said that for the past 60 years no one in the world has obtained more power and more wealth than the American White male. By ruling America they have been the super power in the world shaping countries and the lives of billions. But that power has come with a price, now they are the most hated people in the world.
I guess you can say that most of the world views America as a continuation of the imperialistic days of Europeans where they conquered the world and carved out their empires on the backs and tears of other countries around the world. Some of us made it, some of us didn't, but either way we all bear the scars of these bad old days.
So the American white male pretty much is hated around the world. The funny thing is that most American white males don't even know it. When they travel abroad they comment on the great culture and people they meet, yet completely miss the insults and dirty looks. Sure they want his money, but I am sure many a drink has been seasoned with a dash of spit over the years.
And this is probably the reason so many people hate the American white male, his unmatched arrogance and witlessness towards anyone not a white male. This is why you will hear him complain about having his rights violated, and everyone else looking at him with a lot of shade.
I am sure you remember the decades long struggle that American white males had to endure to be freed from slavery, to vote, to not face discrimination, and for equal pay. What about the high prison population or being in poverty or even high unemployment?
Sure the America White male has to endure jokes about not being able to dance, sing, not being athletic, and overweight. Every time he is with a beauty woman especially one that is not white, people always say he has to be rich.
On TV and in movies they are always portrayed as complete morons or servants of the Devil, does not seem to be too much in-between. I mean even American white males make fun of American white guys. I mean how many comedians have made a career out of making fun of white guys. I am betting you can not even count that high.
We all need to be more sensitive to the plight of the American white male. I mean it is hard being white. I mean when the biggest problems you have in life are whether the government is listening to your phone calls, should you buy the Xbox One or Playstation 4, and how are you going to ask the cute girl at Starbucks out then life is pretty tough.
Can you imagine if American white males had to deal with having a probe being forced into their bodies, whether they were going to get shot on a random police stop, if they could get a fair rate on a mortgage, or if someone was standing by them when they voted?
So let's all try to be more understanding of the plight of the American White male, for while he may rule the world at the moment it is clear that he could not handle the trials and tribulations many of us endure in our daily lives.
If are not nice even more of them are going to move to New Zealand or some South American country where they will get a nice Spanish speaking girl that is young enough to be their grand daughter as their wife. Now we do not want that do we.
