White privilege is just another term for Western civilisation.
When I graduated from the University of North Carolina in 1963 all the graduates were given Bibles. Women had their own dormitories and had to sign out and in. I reckon the times have changed.

It seems that some people are justifying the jihad against Confederate symbols by saying that Confederates “killed American soldiers.” Of course, Confederates were American soldiers too and more “American” than their enemies. The “American soldiers” Confederates killed (a fourth of them foreigners) were engaged in a brutal war of conquest against other Americans, including women, children, and black people. Such childish views of the history of “American soldiers” seem to prevail even at the highest level.
Our Secretary of State recently justified the U.S. regime’s Ukrainian policy by remarking that Americans don’t like big bullies who pick on smaller countries. Really? Narcissists and psychopaths never blame themselves for anything.
Thanks to all the illegal immigrants in recent decades, California and Texas have about the same demographic profile of foreigners. However, stats show the Texas is considerably less corrupt and violent than California, and Texas is still Red. Why is this? Because Texas still has some remnants of Southern civilisation while California never had any civilisation.
Lynn Cheney recently stated that secession had been decided by the “Civil War” and nobody should talk about. This is the shallow poseur “intellectual” who the Republican Party chose to hand out millions of dollars in grants at the National Endowment for the Humanities.

George Bush 1 was the last President to have any actual military service, 80 years ago.
America is now a post-Christian society. That is a rather significant fact. Think about it.
