This video was a the center of conversation at a local cigar shop recently. I disagreed sharply with John Wayne. There was no yelling, ad hominem, screaming and what we in the group watching it did agree on was we kinda missed the era when a person could pontificate (and to my way of thinking be so misinformed because of privilege) and more or less "get away with it." That is not be immediately labeled, shunned, pushed for an apology and silenced.
My two cents about Mr. John Wayne's thoughts are below.
White privilege allows Mr. Wayne to be under educated about and dismissive of race in America. (I am looking for a term that is not as incendiary as "white privilege" but calls it what it is.)
For instance, the argument can me made, quite successfully that "minorities" didn't hyphenate themselves. That is they didn't separate themselves from white America. 4oo years of slavery did, followed by Jim Crow laws, Redlining and a concerted effort through the 60's to keep them marginalized. Minority America did not create separate but equal that even a white supreme court saw wasn't equal.
Black colleges, churches and other organizations didn't initially rise from blacks not wanting to assimilate but from being barred from school, churches, organizations, etc. Ok this is a test. Who Hyphenated America? Not brown and black people.

When were we a matriarchy? Probably just misspoke. The fight for women's rights and equally has taken away the good feeling of tipping hats and opening doors? This shows how oblivious Mr. Wayne is of the plight of people outside or white male privilege. A fair trade off for equal pay in the workplace (one of several tenets of feminism).

"Tough break" is certainly a euphemism. From 1882-1968 3,446 blacks were lynched, almost 3 times as many as majority whites. Atlanta race riots, Black Wall St., Chicago race riots, Rosewood Massacre, and East St. Louis massacre among many events started by whites in many cases to destroy successful black towns. I guess I might be tempted to call this just a bad break if I was ignorant of what these terrorist attacks are and how much damage they still cause.
"Shouldn't feel terribly guilty.." I agree and people "woke" in this area don't feel whites should feel guilty. "Better life than any place else." I'm guessing Mr. Wayne hasn't traveled or lived anywhere else outside of Ameica as a black or brown person. .. totally misinformed statement not in keeping with reality. As a matter of fact the world is replete with place where white Americans could live a much better life than in the USA. But of course we keep listening to, "we're number one!" bs instead of looking and becoming educated.

Orthodoxy without orthopraxy actually isn't orthodoxy. You just think it is.

Been kinda interesting over the last few years engaging with friends, colleagues and allies hearing the level of powerlessness. So many "woke" people vocalizing how powerless they feel after years of practicing being mindful, being conscious, being empowered.
Can you go through disciplines of empowerment and spirituality and still be asleep and toothless? Most certainly we see and even participate in it probably daily. One translation of metabedu-knowing,being,doing. Rinse and repeat. Thanks +DemiGoddess AnuktataHotep for the post. To spin Angela Davis, It's not enough to be not (fill in the blank racist, misogynist, asleep, etc.) We need to be anti.
