They have convinced themselves it is true, when it is a joke, by hearing BS all their lives- BTW, she looks like the kind of girl who falls off a Waikiki bar stool.

I was going to post a video from "Legally Blonde", but that would only make fun of PART of her problems. (however, anyone who thinks being "pretty" and a cheerleader is grounds for letting someone off for a DUI certainly reminds me of that).

So, no...  the real issue is her guarded "hints" to the cop about being "white".   White privilege indeed...

LOL  I just watched the TYT clip you added...  they made the same point and I did...  I guess that makes me a "very stable genius" as well.

There are people here who would accuse me of being sexist because I post such material in an effort to demonstrate that sexism is, or can be, used as a weapon by white women within the context of a manifestation of racist behavior.

Being a victim of sexism is not a "pass"  for indulging in white privilege or racism any more than being black is an affirmative defense to indulging in sexist behavior or being sexist.

Racism and Sexism are branches of the same tree which is rooted in notions of white male dominance and supremacy...

The fact that there are women who would support and vote for Trump is appalling.

The fact that there are black people who openly support a bigoted racist is disappointing and disheartening...

Reason and motivation to double down on our efforts to rid the nation of the most dangerously divisive force to occupy the White House since Reconstruction....

Bad news, white women get off DUIs by flirting or worse ALL THE TIME. Minority women are more likely to have the release "suggested" to them as a way out ...
