The Honky Tax

Bill Maher proposed a "honky tax" to erase white shame Friday night.  Pretty funny.

Some of what he’s saying is true (and funny), I.e., that it’s ABSURD for whites to constantly be embarrassed about being white. Where’s he’s WRONG though is in saying that blacks don’t want that. MANY blacks DO I in fact want us to constantly flog ourselves, saying I’m sorry every time we open our mouth. Also, he’s also wrong that “whites were born with privilege.” I’m so sick of this crap. I’m from the Delta so I knew tons of poor rural black people, BUT I also knew tons of poor, uneducated and underprivileged whites. Have you ever seen pics of the Great Depression, the dust bowl? The Appalachian region? Patronize those white families by telling them “aw, it’s ok, you can’t help that you were born white and privileged.” See how fast you’ll get knocked on your ass. This white privilege thing is ridiculous.

Why do you publish this sort of continual bullshit? There is plenty of real news in the metro that we actually want to know about.

I had no idea that White privilege was getting up way before the crack of dawn to get to work and get home as the sun is setting. I’m scratching my head here and trying to wrap my head around this whole issue. I’ll be damned if I’m going to be ashamed! I work hard and I know a lot of people who work hard also. Just look at your major arteries coming into the tri county area at 5:00 a m in the morning! But, those that disagree never get up early enough to see that! And by the way, it only got this way in that past 2 years.

Serious question...when did this bullshit start, and where do we go from here? Between the "cancel culture," "woke" society, gender, and "climate justice," I'm wondering where our country is headed. I may be old school, but a lot of these issues seem fabricated and are just exacerbated by social media. Facts aren't even facts any more...just ask Joe Biden. If you're ashamed to be white, black, or whatever race you identify with, it's probably because of something you did, not what color you are.

I have no concern in my heart with being a polybear. You will also notice I am also white. I have no concern with that either. If a white polybear can live guilt free with his genetic place in life, everyone else should also.

White Guy here ... I’m not embarrassed to be white, and I don’t really believe in white privilege, but the level of “access” isn’t the same for all demographics. It just isn’t.

Anonymous said...

4:42, such as? Exactly what do you see that is positive going on in Jackson?

Anonymous said...

9:05, maybe "access" is given more freely to folks (regardless of race) to those who treat each other with respect, speak clearly, and don't dress like prostitutes or like you just rolled out of bed...I saw a guy the other day at a government office who was wearing shower shoes and pajama bottoms - he was bitching up a storm about something, and the nice lady behind the counter was trying her best to understand whatever dialect of the English language he was speaking. When he started cursing and getting loud, a deputy came in and calmed him down. But seriously, if you act like an asshole, and dress like you don't give a shit and treat people poorly, nobody is going to want to deal with you...

So today's lesson:
1. Be nice;
2. Speak so that others can understand you;
3. Dress appropriately for the situation.

Is it really that hard???

People who have never been openly oppressed never see what the problem is. At 9:05 made a good point. He simply stated that there is no reason to be embarrassed about your race, and that he acknowledged that membership has its privileges.

But we all know there is classism and all other kinds of "isms" in practice. Hell, MSU wouldn't exist if there was no classism and racism. Alcorn would probably be the state's number 2 university if whites had no problems going to schools with blacks. The state's elites didn't want those not in their class attending Ole Miss, and the lower class whites did not want to go to Alcorn.

I was under the impression that income tax was "honky" tax - it supports all of the worthless folks who are too lazy to work...and don't you dare play the race card; in this context there are plenty of black honkies.

Privilege is characteristically invisible to people who have it. People in dominant groups often believe that they have earned the privileges that they enjoy or that everyone could have access to these privileges if only they worked to earn them.

Dear 10:05. Just wanted to thank you High Class White’s for letting us Low Class white folks have a college.

10:05 start an association of "Historically White Colleges and Universities" and see how many blacks would feel welcome. I attended Jackson State in 1977 and some faculty and students let me know that I wasn't welcome.

Some students were nice, others were not. I took four classes. The instructors were two black, one white and one Asian. One of the black instructors was a racist who marked answers wrong when acknowledging the answers were correct because, "I had another example in mind when a wrote the question."

Racism is a matter of the heart, not the skin color.

I can't apologize for something I had no involvement in (sounds familiar doesn't it). There is no need to start an association of HWCUs. There would have been no reason to start an association of HBCUs, if schools would have allowed integration.

In all seriousness, it is too bad you were made to feel that way. A really good family friend of mine made the same assertion about two predominately white institutions that she attended for undergrad and grad school, other than professors marking answers wrong. However, your matter could have been handled by going to administration.

None of this crap is new. White privilege as it's being described by liberals today is exactly what it was being described as by liberals fifty years ago when I was a senior in high school, and liberals fifty years from now will be describing it the same way. People are different. Get over it.

The truth is the 1% are the real unquestionable privileged with ultimate victim status and are totally above criticism and Bill Maher is a member of that tribe.

Anonymous said...

4:42 Please cite a single instance when Jackson State administration admitted to racism against white students. Name one. Go the JSU's administration for relief? You jest indeed.

Anonymous said...

@6:45, I suspect I know what Tribe you are inplying Bill Maher is a member of. I assure you that he is a a hellbound Athiest. He produced and released the demonic anti Christian, athirst filmReligulous a few years ago.

10:05 elite and Ole Miss should never be used in the same sentence

You are probably right. JSU administration doesn't admit to much of anything, regardless of race. They are equal opportunity a--holes to all. JSU alums talk about them as bad as you guys on here do.

Maher would be much funnier if he didn't throw out the "F' word every two minutes.

A true "comedian ' can get laughs without being vulgar.

I'm not a prude, and that language is funny at times . . .

But give me a break Bill Maher.

Such language was funny in Junior High, but you're sixty-three years old now..

Geeze !

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
