Meghan McCain Concerned Biden Admin Overlooking White People
Meghan McCain, the daughter of the late Arizona Sen. John McCain and a co-host on ABC's "The View," expressed concern that Democrats are too consumed with race and sexual identity in their hiring practices, then they are with making sure “more-qualified” white men get the job.
Words of wisdom from affluenza poster child and professional descendant, "Karen" McCain - “Princess of Arizona.” By the way, I’ll just say that’s a rather “interesting” look she’s sporting there, and leave it at that. Now, before anyone gets mad, I honestly did consider giving up making snide remarks about people's appearances for Lent, but then remembered “hell, I’m not even Catholic.”
Of course, what Princess McCain is really implying here is that - if you’re a member of a marginalized group, it means you’re obviously not really qualified to hold a prominent position in government or industry. Her feeling appears to be that if we continue to insist upon giving marginalized folks equal representation in employment, then being from a prominent family with good connections, will mean nothing anymore.
Well, I hate to break it to her, but just by being some drunken frat boy from a prestigious Eastern college that your wealthy parents bought your way into, is actually not a real qualification for much of anything, other than for perhaps the classification of “nepotism” - a concept I’m quite sure Meghan McCain is very acquainted with.
I think I see the point all be it being expressed very poorly, that identity politics can be spun in such away as to simply move the prejudices and and resentments elsewhere, rather than destroy them.
No one is responsible for the actions of their ancestors, but anyone can be responsible for perpetuating their faults.
Actual equality is what matters now, treating all people as people with equal responsibilities and rights regardless of accidents of birth, in order to build a more fair future for all.
It is true that white people, especially men, have enjoyed a history of privilege. But unfairness is unfairness and two wrongs don’t make a right . If you are the person who has been passed over for a promotion, or college slot, or whatever by someone less qualified you will feel wronged, as women and people of color have felt forever. So now it is okay to let white men be miserable? How is taking your pain and inflicting it on another good? We value diversity because it improves everything, but When we fail to see people as individuals and merely members of groups, bitterness ensues. We all want to be seen as individuals.
Exactly. That's why white men scream "reverse discrimination!"
They think women and minority people should not be promoted or hired above white men.
Meanwhile, women still earn 81% of what men do for commensurate jobs. And black men are paid 65%, black women even less.
