For those who still can’t grasp the concept of white privilege, or who are constantly looking for some easy-to-understand examples of it, perhaps this list will help.

White privilege is when you can get pregnant at seventeen like Bristol Palin and everyone is quick to insist that your life and that of your family is a personal matter, and that no one has a right to judge you or your parents, because “every family has challenges,” even as black and Latino families with similar “challenges” are regularly typified as irresponsible, pathological and arbiters of social decay.

White privilege is when you can call yourself a “fuckin’ redneck,” like Bristol Palin’s boyfriend does, and talk about how if anyone messes with you, you'll “kick their fuckin' ass,” and talk about how you like to “shoot shit” for fun, and still be viewed as a responsible, all-American boy (and a great son-in-law to be) rather than a thug.

White privilege is when you can attend four different colleges in six years like Sarah Palin did (one of which you basically failed out of, then returned to after making up some coursework at a community college), and no one questions your intelligence or commitment to achievement, whereas a person of color who did this would be viewed as unfit for college, and probably someone who only got in in the first place because of affirmative action.

White privilege is when you can claim that being mayor of a town smaller than most medium-sized colleges, and then Governor of a state with about the same number of people as the lower fifth of the island of Manhattan, makes you ready to potentially be president, and people don’t all piss on themselves with laughter, while being a black U.S. Senator, two-term state Senator, and constitutional law scholar, means you’re “untested.”

White privilege is being able to say that you support the words “under God” in the pledge of allegiance because “if it was good enough for the founding fathers, it’s good enough for me,” and not be immediately disqualified from holding office--since, after all, the pledge was written in the late 1800s and the “under God” part wasn’t added until the 1950s--while believing that reading accused criminals and terrorists their rights (because, ya know, the Constitution, which you used to teach at a prestigious law school requires it), is a dangerous and silly idea only supported by mushy liberals.

White privilege is being able to be a gun enthusiast and not make people immediately scared of you.

White privilege is being able to have a husband who was a member of an extremist political party that wants your state to secede from the Union, and whose motto was “Alaska first,” and no one questions your patriotism or that of your family, while if you're black and your spouse merely fails to come to a 9/11 memorial so she can be home with her kids on the first day of school, people immediately think she’s being disrespectful.

White privilege is being able to make fun of community organizers and the work they do--like, among other things, fight for the right of women to vote, or for civil rights, or the 8-hour workday, or an end to child labor--and people think you’re being pithy and tough, but if you merely question the experience of a small town mayor and 18-month governor with no foreign policy expertise beyond a class she took in college--you’re somehow being mean, or even sexist.

White privilege is being able to convince white women who don’t even agree with you on any substantive issue to vote for you and your running mate anyway, because all of a sudden your presence on the ticket has inspired confidence in these same white women, and made them give your party a “second look.”

White privilege is being able to fire people who didn’t support your political campaigns and not be accused of abusing your power or being a typical politician who engages in favoritism, while being black and merely knowing some folks from the old-line political machines in Chicago means you must be corrupt.

White privilege is being able to attend churches over the years whose pastors say that people who voted for John Kerry or merely criticize George W. Bush are going to hell, and that the U.S. is an explicitly Christian nation and the job of Christians is to bring Christian theological principles into government, and who bring in speakers who say the conflict in the Middle East is God’s punishment on Jews for rejecting Jesus, and everyone can still think you’re just a good church-going Christian, but if you’re black and friends with a black pastor who has noted (as have Colin Powell and the U.S. Department of Defense) that terrorist attacks are often the result of U.S. foreign policy and who talks about the history of racism and its effect on black people, you’re an extremist who probably hates America.

White privilege is not knowing what the Bush Doctrine is when asked by a reporter, and then people get angry at the reporter for asking you such a “trick question,” while being black and merely refusing to give one-word answers to the queries of Bill O’Reilly means you’re dodging the question, or trying to seem overly intellectual and nuanced.

White privilege is being able to claim your experience as a POW has anything at all to do with your fitness for president, while being black and experiencing racism is, as Sarah Palin has referred to it a “light” burden.

And finally, white privilege is the only thing that could possibly allow someone to become president when he has voted with George W. Bush 90 percent of the time, even as unemployment is skyrocketing, people are losing their homes, inflation is rising, and the U.S. is increasingly isolated from world opinion, just because white voters aren’t sure about that whole “change” thing. Ya know, it’s just too vague and ill-defined, unlike, say, four more years of the same, which is very concrete and certain.

White privilege is, in short, the problem.

Poster Boy Boyer

Did you ever notice that ignorance and illiteracy just seems to abound among the racists? While stereotyping may not be the politically correct thing to do, one cannot shake the image of the beer-bellied, inbred racist that has long been depicted as the typical KKK member when reading some of the swill posted on white power message boards and Justin Boyer is a prime example of the slow-witted, ill-bred, cretin who populates the "movement."

Justin, a former NSM member turned Bill White boot-licker turned NSM member anew, was at one point a pariah to the brown-shirted Nazi's because of his physical abusiveness toward his pregnant girlfriend. However, with their sagging membership, they welcomed him back into the fold when he told Bill White to take a hike. Of course, there is no loyalty among racists.

Yesterday, Justin posted on the VNN Forum that his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his child is now dating an African-American. In his own words…

"I just found out she is dateing a nigger. What should i do? I do not want my son to part of that sick shit. I got pics to prove it."

Well, Justin there are court documents to prove that you didn't care much about that son of yours while you were beating on his pregnant mother and it's obvious that you haven't grown up any or become any more educated.

Now, VNN is replete with posters who are quite enamored with their knowledge of such things and are quick to offer advice to those who are in need. Some are a little more literate than others, but their ignorance runs pretty true to form. One such member had this to offer…

"Stating the obvious, you're in a tough spot.

"You must be careful of alienating yourself from your son by the type of criticism you express to him about his mother. Instead of hate-filled venom, try sympathy. For example:

"Don't say: Your mother is a nigger-fucking pig! And I hate her guts.

"Try saying: Mommy has a sickness in her head and this is why she's seeing that nasty-looking black man. Maybe someday she'll get better and you won't have to look at that bad man.

"Of course these are over-the-top examples for illustrative purposes, however I'm sure you get my point."

[Oh, we get the point! The point is that you are an ignorant individual who demonstrates quite well that racists should never be parents.]

"When dealing with your ex, you must use tact, have plenty of patience, and be ever the gentleman. Don't lose your cool. Always take the high ground and don't allow yourself to be baited into a situation that makes you look anything less than a gentleman."

[You do realize that you are speaking to Justin Boyer - an abuser of women who is obviously not very bright and quite incapable of gentlemanly behavior.]

"Also, it's probably only a matter of time before the nigger exhibits TNB and causes your ex to do the same. It's incumbent upon you to document any incident that you can use to build a custody case. This means building alliances with people close to her that will be willing to share inside-her-house information with you.

"In building your custody case, don't rely upon only one single abuse/neglect incident to carry your case. The courts are stacked against White men. You will need to build a mountain of evidence and even then your chances will be slim of prevailing in the courts, especially if it comes out that you're affiliated with any proWhite organization."

[The courts are "stacked" against men who have beaten and abused their wives/girlfriends as they are likely to be abusive to their children as well. Using euphemisms such as "pro-white" for neo-Nazi won't play well to the judge either.]

"If and when all else fails, one might have to resort to skulduggery. I know a lawyer in Tampa Florida who was in similar circumstances and he planted drugs in the ex-wife's car. It worked."

While the last suggestion is despicable, I'm really glad that he made it as it demonstrates the mindset of those who inhabit the racist movement and…should Boyer's ex find herself in such a predicament, the police will know who to look for.

Boyer, enraged by this situation, may just be the loose cannon who is stupid enough to act on racist impulse and his reply to the many well-wishers gives us cause for alarm…

"I got to be carefull. I been in court for about 1year and half over all this shit. And i am just now finding out. Well pray for me so i will not shot this negro or turn out like yankee Jim god rest his soul."

Yankee Jim, you may remember, killed his wife and himself some months back. Given the fact that Boyer is a nut-case who is also a little light in the IQ department, he certainly fits the profile of the lone-wolf who would pull the trigger without thinking.

Justin Boyer is the perfect poster boy for the National Socialist Movement just as he would have been for Bill White's ANSWP. He is vulnerable, wants to belong to something, and easily led. He is also a perfect example of the kind of young person that these organizations try and recruit. They seek out those who are alienated by others, a little on the slow side, and who are eager to do their bidding. What we, as a society, end up with is often a very disturbed and dysfunctional individual who believes violence solves everything. We hope and pray that the authorities are watching - carefully.

Vomiting is generally the body’s way of ridding itself of that which the system rejects. Projectile vomiting is a violent reaction to that which is toxic to the body and is most common in infants, young children, and narcissistic Nazi’s who consistently and repetitively spew their cookies all over the web, i.e. Bill White. The former is a physical reaction to that which is alien or toxic while the latter is a manifestation of a psychological pathology which consumes all that is sensible, moral, and human in its’ host.

As White nears the end of the line in the white nationalist movement, destitute, degraded and desperate to the point of depravity his rhetoric and tone has become more strident and more violent. Rejected by his wife, ostracized by most in the movement, relieved of most of his assets, Bill White has found himself relegated to treks in the swamps with fellow reject, Chris Drake, mental stagnation, and human fodder for various insects.

Of course, we could say that it couldn’t have happened to a more deserving fellow – we could say that. We could say that Bill White was never really a part of the movement anyway – oh…we have already said that. We could claim that the charade engaged in by White was really all a big undercover operation and that he is really one of us…but we ain’t about to claim him.

It is important for all to remember that Bill White is a very – and I do mean very – needy person. We knew when the downward spiral came it would not be a pretty sight and that he would not go quietly or gracefully into oblivious solitude – not unless he was carted away in a trance induced by massive doses of Thorazine.

Albeit, lacking the charisma and showmanship of a Hal Turner, Bill White seems to have stolen a page from Hal’s playbook and thrown the Hail Mary pass in an attempt to garner the attention he so desperately needs for mere survival. But, Bill can’t quite get there from here – he just doesn’t realize that – won’t ever realize that.

After numerous attempts to justify his bankruptcy filings and to convince followers of his solvency failed, White, humiliated and broke, turned his attention to presidential candidate Barack Obama. Claiming that, “Barack Obama has a history of sponsoring political violence and adheres to a radical black nationalist and communist ideology, created by Jews, that calls for the racial murder and genocide of white people,” Bill went on a tangent – one that could cost him dearly.

Currently, he is trying to raise the funds to publish a special edition of his National Socialist magazine which would bare a picture on the cover of Obama speaking to a crowd of people with a sniper target super-imposed over his head. The header would read, “Kill This Nigger?”

According to White’s website:

“The controversial cover for a story on "Negro Deification And The 'Obama Assassination' Myth", looks at the role that Barack Obama's radical communist politics and Jewish backers have played in making his electoral career and how he plans genocide against white working people.

“The article also looks into the phony "Obama assassination" conspiracies that have circulated in the Jewish press, and how major Jewish newspapers, like the Washington Post, tried to promote white supremacist opposition to Obama through planted and staged newspaper articles.”

Of course, the two or three members of his American National Socialist Worker’s Party combined with a handful of nut-jobs who think this sort of thing productive will never be able to raise the dollars necessary to print any appreciable amount of this trash. The very fact that White would even make such a suggestion speaks volumes about his current mental state.

He now claims that he was paid a visit by the United States Secret Service and the Federal Bureau of Investigation concerning his magazine cover – little wonder, right? Well, the nature of Narcissistic Personality Disorder is particularly devious and does not allow for much of anything other than self-aggrandizement.

Consequently, Bill White must turn every incident into something that portrays him as the center of the universe – regardless of how small and distorted that world might be. Hence, he claims that federal law-enforcement are concerned that Obama supporters might endanger his safety if such a magazine is distributed! I kid you not!

It would never occur to Bill White that no one believes him to be that important. It would never occur to him that his failure to succeed in anything is solely because of his debilitating psychotic disorder which will certainly find him, eventually, the subject of a American Psychological Association study and ground-breaking journal article as he languishes in a hospital for the chronically mentally ill.

No sane person could ever possibly understand fully what thoughts, ideas, or convoluted perceptions reside within the confines of Bill White’s mind – nor would we want to. However, there are a few obvious truisms that we have learned over years of watching the sick machinations of this person. Bill White doesn’t just want attention – he needs it. His tenure in the racist movement has been a roller-coaster ride and his fall from grace has been a long time coming. Now, as he faces the darkest of his fears – not being noticed – he has run out of shock value, has run out of idolators, and has run out of money.

This week when an article appeared in the Sun Times stating that the incarcerated, Matt Hale, former Pontifex Maximus of the now defunct racist “World Church of the Creator,” was petitioning the courts for a reduced sentence based on information concerning a juror in his trial, Bill White saw an opportunity to ingratiate himself with the few “Creators” who are left.

Writing, “A white leader wrongfully imprisoned on charges of "conspiring" to kill a federal judge may have his forty year prison sentence reduced if an Illinois judge assigned the task of reviewing the qualifications of his jurors finds impropriety in their selection,” White refers to the juror as a “gay Jew who has a black lover,” and subsequently publishes the man’s name, phone number, picture, and place of employment. We are quickly reminded that during Hale’s trial, Bill White published what he believed to be the personal information of the federal informant who testified against Hale only to find out that the information was for the wrong Tony Evola. All of this resulted in an elderly man and his family having to be provided with police protection.

His most recent target has been Randy Blazak, an Associate Professor at Portland State University and long-time anti-hate activist. Blazak has run afoul of many white supremacists and neo-Nazi’s in the Portland area over the years and has had a running feud with Matthew Ramsey, (a.k.a. Jim Ramm) one of the most prominent racists in the region. White published all of Blazak’s personal info as well as that of his wife. This has been a long-time tactic of White – however it isn’t always limited to those he considers anti-racist or “anti-white.” Bill often publishes information on other people in the racist movement whom he has problems with.
As a matter of fact, over the years, he has gifted us with names, addresses, and information of an extremely intimate and personal nature on numerous leaders and members of the movement which has been invaluable in our work. Of course, these actions have played a large part in his ousting from any standing within the movement – but se la vie!

While much of what Bill White is currently engaged in may be troublesome to some, something tells me that any meaningful threat that he may have been to our society has now seen the turning of the tide and that the real threat of Bill White is that to himself. As he becomes more and more ostracized by others, more and more alone, and more and more desperate any influence he has over others is apt to wane appreciably. Understanding his craving and, indeed, his need for attention and self-validation, I see one of two scenarios for his future – a) he will engage in some action so outrageous and, perhaps violent, that he will be put away for life, or b) he will turn that violence upon himself as he becomes more and more despondent over his failure to make the world see how important he is.

Until one of these two things take place, we can expect more projectile vomiting from this has-been, never-was, Nazi as his body continues to try and rid itself of the toxic waste that has been ingested by its’ truly sick master.

Matt Hale may have "sentence reduced"

Chicago SunTimes
September 11, 2008
BY NATASHA KORECKI Federal Courts Reporter
White supremacist Matthew Hale was sent to the nation's highest security prison for 40 years after he ordered a hit on a Chicago federal judge.

But Hale, self-described "Pontifex Maximus" of a hate group, now has a shot at a new sentence despite having lost court appeals.

Racist has a Shot

Neighborhood watch: Kiddie porn possessor to be released
by Lisa Provence

Kevin Strom in a pre-arrest Wikipedia page photo.
Kevin Strom, who was sentenced to 23 months for possession of child pornography and who proudly counts himself a white separatist, gets out of prison tomorrow, and his pending residence in the 1100 block of St. Charles Court is causing some neighborhood consternation.

Filling neighborhoods with unwanted racial pamplets and papers has long been a tactic of white supremacist organizations. In this case, however, it appears someone in the neighborhood, or someone who doesn’t like Kevin Strom, may be doing the leafleting.

The Charlottesville neighborhood where Strom, founder of a now-defunct white separatist organization called the National Vanguard, will live with his mother, stepfather, and two children has been papered with fliers warning about the registered sex offender who will be residing among them.

Charlottesville Police Chief Tim Longo, who lives in that neighborhood, hopes Strom gets a fair treatment in his transition back into society.

“We talk a lot about redemption,” says Longo. “He’s served his sentence. I would hope people will not pre-judge.”

Longo calls Strom’s mother and stepfather “good people” and “good neighbors,” and he says his children play with Strom’s children, who have been living with Strom’s mother while he was incarcerated on the child porn possession charge. And Longo points out that Strom, who has been at the Federal Correctional Complex in Petersburg, will be heavily supervised during his 15-year probation.

Strom went to trial last year on charges of enticement of a minor and witness intimidation, charges that were thrown out. He pleaded guilty to one count of child porn possession, but said he’d possessed it “unwillingly,” and at the April 21 sentencing declared, “I am not a pedophile.”

His estranged wife, Elisha Strom, denies leafleting St. Charles Court about Strom’s September 3 release, but says, “Someone has to notify the neighborhood, especially since he’s still pretending to be innocent.”

The Stroms’ tempestuous relationship was revealed in court last fall, after Elisha Strom’s phone calls to police accusing Strom of kiddie porn possession, stalking a 10-year-old friend of her daughter’s and intimidation of a witness— herself— led to felony charges. She did admit to bashing Strom on the head with a telephone.

While Strom is not prohibited from being around his minor children, Elisha Strom maintains that her husband is a danger to children. “He’s in denial,” she says. “[Strom and his parents] are trying to play the victim. They’re not victims.”

Another St. Charles Court resident, who asked that her name not be used, is most concerned about “those two wonderful children living in that household with Kevin’s mother.” She says, “I can’t imagine the impact on them. I just don’t know what the publicity is going to do to those children.”
