Try not to cringe too hard.
I’d really like to see children out of politics entirely, because both sides have the same hypocrisy. If a child voices a political opinion they agree with, he’s a genius. If they voice a political opinion they disagree with, they’re brainwashed.
Sadly, it’s usually just the child parroting an opinion of their parents and mentors – and that was on full display when a fourteen year old presented at a slam poetry competition about his “white boy privilege.”
“Dear women, I’m sorry,” begins the 14-year-old indoctrinated student, Royce Mann, in a video recorded at his high school in Atlanta during a poetry slam last month. “Dear black people, I’m sorry. Dear Asian-Americans, dear Native Americans, dear immigrants who come here seeking a better life, I’m sorry.”
“Dear everyone who isn’t a middle or upper class white boy, I’m sorry,” he continued. “I have started life on the top of the ladder while you were born on the first rung. I say now that I would change places with you in an instant, but if given the opportunity, would I? Probably not.”
Listen to his whole diatribe below, and get ready to puke:
Well, what a load of garbage that is.
Just four more years until this kid can vote – and finally becomes a fully pledged useful idiot.
