Filmmaker Ami Horowitz always does a good job juxtaposing the perception of the world the liberals present with reality.In his most recent video, he attended the “White Privilege Conference” in Kansas City, MO, which attracted over 1,000 attendees. Horowitz interviewed a handful of white attendees, all of whom believed every white person in America held “white privilege,” and that all white people are inherently racist.
Apparently these attendees don’t exactly think all that highly of themselves.
The same attendees — also afflicted with white guilt — were then asked if it was “wrong to judge people collectively,” which they affirmed (except for one race, apparently).
At the end of the video, Horowitz asked the attendees to give examples of the white privilege they experience on a daily basis — and got some ridiculous responses. “Sorry, I’m not good at thinking,” replied one girl who couldn’t give a single example.The video concludes with Horowitz visiting the Jackie Robinson Housing Project in Harlem to ask blacks if they felt that they were “consumed with the idea of white privilege” on a daily basis. They offer a perspective the naive liberal conference attendees desperately need to hear.
