    doesn't mean white men have none.

    There revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.

      Stop putting words in my mouth.

      Except of course for my fellow workers who died on the job while the Boss still raked in the profits. They got none.

      Oh wait, your right, they got a nice cozy grave.

      I stand corrected!

        How can they have any if it's a myth?  They have power and they don't?  That's impossible.

        Except of course for my fellow workers who died on the job while the Boss still raked in the profits. They got none.

        Oh wait, your right, they got a nice cozy grave.

        And what of all the people who don't even get that?  Huh?  The people who don't have a job?  

        Again and again I've said that white men don't have all the power and yet you want me to be saying that.  You want to ignore the fact that white men do in fact have power.

          no real power in this society, they only think they do, that's why its a myth.

          and better to be dead than unemployed?

          Now you are really getting crazy.

          Again, write the families, ask them if they would prefer their husband or father alive and unemployed, or dead and buried.

          Sheesh, what an asshole.

          FUCK OFF.

            women and people of color on a regular basis.  The fact that you don't see this is frustrating.  

            and better to be dead than unemployed?
            No, but there's plenty of people who don't even get a burial because they don't have the money for it.  And that's more likely with someone who isn't a white male.

            Saying that white and male privilege isn't a problem is not the right way to go about organizing the working class and the poor.

            There revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.
