In defence of the White Male

We live in a civilised country where there is a democracy and equal rights and free speech and we have mainly white males to thank for those privileges. White males went off to war to defend democracy and paid with their lives. White male politicians supported Kate Sheppard and her suffragettes. New Zealand was the first country in the world to give women the vote because one political group of white males agreed to give it to them.

White males are the reason why women are no longer treated as chattels. White males are the reason why I was able to get a university education. A white male taught me to hunt, to shoot, how to chop firewood, change a tire, use a saw and a hammer and what to do if I was ever physically attacked.

So called white male privilege has been used to free the slaves, and to give us all equality no matter what our skin colour or sexual preference. In fact, I would say that white males have been so tolerant and liberal in their sharing of power that the people they have done so much for are now turning on them. I say all this as a person who is neither white nor male.

I am so sick of hearing all the hateful and bigoted BS about white males. It reminds me of the female Muslim activists who use the freedoms that our wonderful western countries give to them (that they didn’t have in their own Islamic countries) to attack our democracy and freedom and to try to destroy our wonderful way of life. We have got to a point now where bigotry and hatefulness towards people for the colour of their skin and their gender is only socially acceptable if the person being discriminated against and disparaged is a white male.

Only the other day I heard a woman disparaging white middle-class males. She would have been horrified if I had disparaged brown working class males yet she felt quite comfortable parroting a bigoted sentiment that I suspect many others share in her work environment where diversity is worshipped with almost religious fervour.

Countries founded by and run by white males are among the most prosperous and the freest in the world and non-white males flock to the shores of these countries wanting to enjoy the wealth and privileges of the civilisations that generations of mainly white males have built.

I am appalled by the hypocrisy of people who feel free to belittle and discriminate against white males because of their skin colour and gender but scream blue murder if anyone from a minority group is belittled or discriminated against because of their skin colour, gender or religion.

White males are not perfect any more than I am perfect as an olive skinned female. What white males do not deserve is to be treated as second class citizens and as politically correct punching bags by the very minorities and women that their ancestors have done so much for and given so much to.
