For the past two months, my Shaman and I have been trying to figure
out why I stopped having dreams about James Franco.
It’s obviously the year of the dragon, because my Animal Healer had me
rub the backs of 6 lizards in our session today
This is the worst detox salad I’ve ever had. #whitegirlproblems
My advice: get dressed up in a few layers of vintage Comme Des Garcons
and go hang around your local homeless shelter.
Everyone has a psycho bitch lurking inside of them that’s dying to
write all over their boyfriend’s Facebook wall.
I just want to meet a nice guy who will lie to me, steal from me, get
fat and let me hate fuck him. #whitegirlproblems

I was very unaware of politics this year, primarily because I’m not a Republican and what they say generally does not interest me nor the way Dems feel obligated to respond to them. However, it seems this video was huge this year and inspired many memes.

Interesting perspective on his beliefs

Privilege x Wine

via Tough Privileged Life

I know that I write about white privilege a lot, but I also have to admit that anyone who has the things normally conferred to white people that lends itself to privilege can be said of similar groups (i.e. Harvard grads, affluent and well-educated people of any race).

On this note, I bring you two gifts.

White W(h)ine – Similar to the Twitter account @yesimwaspy and @whitegrlproblms, this site collects tales of white privilege at its best:

I am constantly amazed by how incredibly rude people are…apparently the fact that I was in the first class line because I have a first class ticket meant nothing to the woman who cut in front of me – Facebook

Let’s cry a tear for Marshall Mathers, aka Eminem.

In his interview with Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes, he basically cries reverse discrimination and shows his white privilege.

At one point in the interview, after reading Eminem his own song lyric in which he says “do I hate fags, the answer is yes” Cooper asked Eminem if he did not like gay people, to which he replied, “No, I don’t have any problem with nobody. You know what I mean? Like I’m just whatever.”

But then Eminem said…

“I felt like I was being attacked. I was being singled out. I felt like, ‘Is it because of the color of my skin? Is it because of that that you’re paying more attention?’ There are certain rappers that do and say the same things that I’m saying and I don’t hear no one say anything about that.”

But thankfully, the Huffington Post, pointed out that 50’s ‘anti-gay’ tweet was highly scrutinized.

It’s true, 50 was criticized, even though I’m sure his tweet was taken out of context – he was actually promoting more sexual parity as it relates to males giving females oral sex. 50’s only fault was that his statement was inherently heteronormative, which I don’t fault him for because he’s a regular person and not someone making a scholarly claim.

Now back to Eminem.

It’s not that people don’t understand you or that you’re cool with everyone, you hate everyone. You hate Mariah and ridicule her, you make fun of nearly all female pop stars, and it really just seems like you have a problem with women and people you consider feminine – gay men. Seems like you have issues of your own that should be worked out.

So, no, it’s not reverse discrimination. Bill O’Reilly has been hounding Ludacris, one of the most tame rappers, over his music that supposedly objectifies women. What you’re doing is crying foul because you’ve been called out, and your white privilege to do and say as you please is no longer valid.

Sorry, when you wanted to be taken seriously in the rap world, you gained your ‘nigga card’ and you can’t return it. You can’t have your white (and black) cake and eat it too. Also, your hate for most groups of people, perpetuation of pill popping and violence against women (though you’ve said sorry time and time again), is actually disgraceful. So, to you, I say ‘Good Day.”

I know that this is completely wrong, and definitely would not be humorous if it were mocking in the other direction, but @whitegrlproblem is my favorite Twitter account.

It’s along the lines of ‘Stuff White People Like‘ in that it mocks a group of (perceived) powered people, thus making it OK to laugh at their expense.

Some of the tweets that make me laugh include ones that speak to ‘white privilege.’

  • I’ll eat anything, as long as it’s gluten-free, dairy-free, low-carb, low-fat, low-calorie, sugar-free and organic. #whitegirlproblems
  • Every job I’ve ever had is the worst job I’ve ever had.#whitegirlproblems
  • I gave him an ultimatum and he gave me a Rolex. He gets me.#whitegirlproblems
  • This isn’t working out. You’re Dasani and I’m Missoni x San Pellegrino. #whitegirlproblems
  • My Dad’s raw food chef, my Dad’s former best friend’s daughter, and my Dad’s new girlfriend are the same person.#whitegirlproblems
