CINCINNATI, Ohio – Before university or K-12 students are subjected to any more lessons on “white privilege,” they should know that the information they’re hearing may very well be nonsense.
A great example comes from Cincinnati and the well-publicized shooting and killing of an adult gorilla after a small child fell into its cage and was being tossed around by the animal.
The “white privilege” people immediately condemned the shooting, somehow labeling it as a racist act.
“Killing an endangered gorilla at a zoo for a white boy’s safety is white privilege,” a person named Hood Intellect opined. “If the boy was black they would’ve found a tranquilizer.”
“RIP to the gorilla who was just tryna be a gorilla but white people captured him and then other white people wanted to touch him and now he’s dead,” a man named Retro Boomin wrote.
For the record, the child who was saved from the gorilla was black. But why let facts get in the way of any opportunity to call people racists?
