‘These Stereotypes Are Ridiculous’: New Video Mocks Un-Fair Campaign’s ‘White Privilege’ Ad

Remember the Un-Fair Campaign, that august collection of enlightened and thoroughly non-racist individuals who believe that whites have an irrevocable privilege that gives them an advantage in society (and that, by extensions minorities will always need special favors to get a leg up)? Well, if you don’t, for the purposes of this story, it may be advisable to rewatch this ad of theirs:

As you can see, the Un-Fair Campaign is aptly named. Their perspective on race is deeply unfair. Fortunately, at least one group has set out to make a video that rebuts the above, and shows how the perspective involved is unfair not just to whites, but to minorities as well. The resulting effort may cause you to spontaneously break out into applause:

What with the refusal of the University of Minnesota-Duluth, one of the Un-Fair Campaign’s biggest institutional sponsors, to defund the organization, this variety of outraged mockery is perhaps the best response. For our part, we can only remark that it is a breath of fresh air for someone to point out so wittily that the idea of white privilege is about as real as the idea that African-Americans have an innate disposition toward pursuing crime. Any way you slice it, both ideas are prejudiced, and the incredulous amusement that radiates from this latter video is the best response to those ideas.

Or, as the participants in this response video put it, “These stereotypes are ridiculous. Dividing people by race does not help me. Offensive. Condescending. Racist. Wrong. I am a part of society, and I get to decide my own life.”
