Candace Owens, in true millennial form, calls white privilege a myth:
Imagine if a white male actor faked a hate crime against himself by pretending black men attacked him in the middle of the night— then was subsequently acquitted of all charges. #JussieSmollett is an utter perversion of justice who just DESTROYED the myth of white privilege.

A potential takeaway from the Smollett hoax: Black, Jewish, Gay, and Elite privileges > White privilege.
We scoff when Conservative, Inc says the right shouldn’t do identity politics like the left does because principles. The same self-defeating argument can be made about not playing the victim card like the left does, again because principles. Well, sometimes Interests > Principles.
One of the major reasons Trump won the Republican nomination and ultimately the presidency is because he has never had any qualms about portraying himself as a victim. There is a time to weaponize anti-whiteness because sometimes the best defense is a good offense.
