Hi Marqita, I am a reporter for American Free Press, a weekly national newspaper based in Washington, DC. I am writing an article for the paper this week regarding the White Privilege Conference.
Would you, or a media representative for the Conference, be willing to answer a few questions? I'd like to use some of your responses in the article I'm writing.
- On the What is the WPC? page, it specifically says that the conference is "designed to examine issues of privilege beyond skin color." If the Conference is "beyond skin color", why is it called the White Privilege Conference?
- Many argue - quite convincingly - that America was founded by White people, and that traditional American culture is strongly identified with the European Christian heritage of the Founding Fathers and other White leaders who built this nation. Assuming this argument is correct, and that America was indeed founded by White Christian peoples, how do you explain the concept of "White privilege"? What exactly is "White privilege"? In Africa, is there such a thing as African privilege? In China, is there such a thing as Chinese privilege? In Mexico, is there such a thing as Mexican privilege? Why is it that there is only "White privilege" in countries that were founded and built by White people?
- Are Whites allowed to have their own countries, develop and champion their own political, economic, and cultural interests, and live amongst their own people, like the Jews in Israel or the Chinese in China or the Mexicans in Mexico or the Africans in Africa are allowed to? Is self determination and empowerment for White people and White countries a legitimate concept?
- Finally, given the inordinate amount of influence and power that Jewish individuals and organizations residing in America have in media, banking, government, academia, and other aspects of society, is it appropriate or legitimate to question the privilege of Jews living in America? Is a Jewish Privilege Conference warranted in the future? If not, why?
