Friend: i made the “oppressed white man” argument once. i was fourteen and still trying to figure out my politics. i saw some old white guy on the local news in idaho make the argument and i was like “that’s a good argument” so proceeded to tell it to my mom. my mom got so pissed. she smacked me down so hard. it turns out the old white guy on the TV was Richard Butler leader of the Aryan Nation

Me: Whoa.

Friend: realizing that i was parroting a aryan nation arguement really scared me.

Me: can you imagine a kid growing up in that culture and then parroting something from MLK to their mom and getting smacked for it?

Friend: rofl
