“White privilege is real. We’re special because we’re White. Our parents worked hard to give us privilege (not to transfer privilege equally among the races). Civilization, culture, and healthy societies is all about privilege. We have a duty to cultivate privilege. And the White race won’t survive if we don’t.” – AltRight.com, “Top 5 ways to embrace and express your White Privilege” – March 5th, 2018.

“I’m not addressing that; I do not get into that. Of course, I have my opinion about everybody and everything, but I learned a long time ago keep your damn mouth shut if you want to stay in show business. I’m not in politics, I am an entertainer.” – Dolly Parton, quoted by Clash America in “Watch: ABC tries to get Dolly to diss Donald – here’s Dolly’s response” – March 5th, 2018.

“China’s flag carrier Air China, which is at the centre of a racism controversy, on Thursday withdrew its in-flight magazine that advised London visitors to be cautious… ‘London is generally a safe place to travel, however precautions are needed when entering areas mainly populated by Indians, Pakistanis and black people’.” – FirstPost, “Editing mistake: Air China withdraws magazine with racist comments about Indians, Pakistanis and black people” – Sept. 8th, 2016.

Nobody can independently decide which country to live in while ignoring national regulations and international law… (the mass migration of people from different cultural backgrounds) leads to the creation of parallel societies with serious security implications in the affected regions…” – Hungarian government statement, quoted by Virginia Hale in “Hungary challenges United Nations plan to facilitate global mass migration” – Breitbart, March 5th, 2018.

“This is the kind of rational, mild, engaged conversation that emerges from identity politics and its dubious offspring, the twisted notion of white (almost always male) privilege: claims that only the ‘aggrieved’ can speak, or can have knowledge on certain issues; hectoring ‘out-group’ citizens to sit down and take it. It’s all barriers and walls and shouts over the ramparts, with more than a touch of attempted moral extortion: ‘Hey, you’re not one of our clan – so you have no authority even to talk about this.’ It’s the tired grievance, oppression narrative.” – Rex Murphy, “The contemptible concept of ‘white privilege’ is just ugly, angry racism” – National Post, March 9th, 2018.
