My White Privilege Card is broken

 

The inspiration of this post goes to Jagmeet Singh the leader of the NDP party of Canada. I follow all the political parties but I find him to be like watching a trainwreck. He seems to have won the publics and his parties affection by using The Race Card and guilt to have been elevated into his public position, using social justice and even now feminism as virtue signalling. Virtue signalling is used to up one’s public standing or public reputation. Anyways each time I comment on instagram his followers swarm me by calling me racist, having white privilege or of being ignorant; while most of his followers are very young students caught up in his public hype that suits a DJ or a prize fighter more than of a professional politician with a proper and solid political platform. Honesty I think he intends to destroy democracy by using the promise of revised and modernised socialism as manipulation towards eroding western traditions in the name of multiculturalsim. I put up a post asking him if his engagement and marriage was arranged and I asked him were he stood on women’s rights and equalities; to be swarmed on my instagram by his followers mostly of Indian asian decent. I was called names and my charater and physical appearance were attacked by ” his people” but I was the one called racist? I took down the post and made my instagram private for a week to get these people to calm the fuck down. But the seriousness of the nature, of Jagmeet’ is what I question; as obviously one cannot question him with out him sending a mob in response. So anyways I am going to inform everyone on how my white privilege card is broken; because I was informed of my white privilege by his followers over and over again. Lets explore my history.

I was born with a broken white privilege card. My mother had serious schizophrenia. She had me 10 months after my sister. I was a mistake that was made when my father forced himself on my very sick mother right after she gave birth to my sister. I didn’t have a cradle. I slept in the buggy by the kitchen sink at my nanny’s house, as my mom often left my father to seek help from her mother. Upon reflection the Ministry of Child Services should of taken us away from our parents very early on so that all 4 of their children wouldn’t of had to suffer the way we did. All though upon putting myself into the foster care system at 16 I suffered still at the hands of strangers that made out that they were good and decent people.

My father and mother would end up back together several times and so we would see our father beating our mother and he would also beat us. My mother was hightly suicidal, she would spend a great deal of her time in the mental hospital so we; her children would end up with at our grandparents or at the mercy of our abusive father who had no mercy. I have been so hungry .. oh.. people cannot imagine that sort of hunger unless it is experience first hand.

At school I was considered a waist of time and enegy by most of the teachers and parents .. or ( White Trash ) even though I was bright and multi-talented I was given no opportunities to shine; rather I was passed by intentionally. One time I remember being in Victoria BC on a field trip with my class to the Parliment Buildings. I was very active in the debate club at school and very good at it, but when the teacher was told he could only bring in 10 kids to watch a bill be passed he chose the kids whose parents were wealthy and influential because he said ” They have better chance than you do Gracie; nothing personal it’s just rational” that was back in 1981 and he was right because Elliot Pister did go into politics and he was one of the chosen few. But of course my social status and social worth was shown to be worthless.

I tried to stop my mother from taking her life but in a mental hospital in Vancouver BC she was successful at hanging herself from a pipe with her PJs. Now you would think that given our father’s horrible reputation with the police and with Child Services that we would of been put into the system but no, we endured 3 horrible years with him and his very abusive girlfriend. The school system and the entire town turned an intentional blind eye towards our horrible abuse that was much like living in a concentration camp. It was -30 outside but we had no heat or hot water in the side of the huge house they rented. We were made to work outside in the blistering heat and the freezing cold to keep his girlfriends horses and other animals. We were so starved that we collected cans to make money to feed ourselves and ate out of garbage cans at school.. yet no one did anything to help us when the abuse was very obvious. And so my White Privilege Card was broken right from the start.

I ran away from my father’s house when I was 16 because he tried to rape me. I spent my 16th birthday on the streets of Banff Alberta, hungry, afraid and with a girlfriend that left me outside of a restaurant while she went inside to eat, because she had money but I didn’t ( that was my 16th birthday ) after a few days I was able to get a hold of my American grandparents that wired me money ( That I used to house and feed the friend that wouldn’t do the same for me ) for a week until they flew me to Vegas to live with them for a year. But my grandmother and grandfather had a nasty split and so I came back to Canada to put myself into fostercare. I was abused in one home out of 3; were they took the money for my care but refused to feed me or buy me clothes. I got a job to support myself, but I had basically been working jobs since the age of 10 to offset my father’s financial neglect.

I went into independant living through the ministry to use student loans to get myself through college. I timed out of foster care funding at 19 and ended up in a very abusive relationship to keep myself housed until finishing my education. I left him and stayed financially independant for a couple of years before meeting my ex husband. We started a business together and I was able to get a government grant at the time for being a minority in business ( A young woman ) { That wasn’t white privilege } I had to work for that grant by spending 8 hrs a day, 5 days a week in class, to write a 110 page business plan and to drum up 10 percent of my clients by tel-marketing myself on my weekends and evenings. More than half of those who applied dropped out before they earned the grant, because it was hard work.

After 14 years together, the death of my sister, 4 miscarrages, and 3 children my ex husband decided being a full time parent wasn’t for him and had an affair with a female employee. His still denies it to this day but they got married in Mexico last year.

Going through the divorce and the separation of assets was an experience in the sexism and the brokeness of our legal system; nothing about it was fair. He was able to hide and lie about many assets and still is, and because I couldn’t afford expensive lawyers and I had no family or parents to help me he robbed me blind. He made out with the majority of the sale of the house and he got the businessnes, as I was told by lawyers that the business couldn’t survive without him but could without me because anyone can do book work and basic accounting. The courts and judges also informed me that his time was far more valuable and important than mine or my work as the kids mother; whom I have the majority of costody. So  – WHITE PRIVILEGE DENIED –

I have been divoced now for over 8 years; I couldn’t get the courts and the judges to get him pay for his share of the child care and so I learned how to work from home and how to work my hours around my kids school time. Even getting my ex to tell the goverment that we were separated so I could recieve child tax benefits took my credit card and a lawyer.. not my broken white privilege card.

And even looking past the supposed white privilege, I have been told that I have pretty privilege so I should get more than most people do out of life because of being called pretty ( Even though when I was a little girl and teenager I thought I was ugly as sin, because I struggled with low selfestem because of my suffering ) But playing people with your looks always has some sort of karma attached to it. You always have to pay something so having a mean and nasty sugar daddy isn’t my definition of a way out of daily grind of life.

The point is – no privilege here. NONE. NOTHING has come to me easlily. When I was turned 30 my doctor said to me ” How does it feel to be 3o ” he was teasing of course; but I said to him ” I can’t believe I made it to 30 ” he look shocked and said to me ” Thats rather dark, why would say that?” and I said ” It’s a long story”

Islamophobia M103 – How religious freedom goes against equal rights and women’s rights

 

 

” Women are treated more equally in some countries that are atheistic or where governments are strictly separated from religion” ~ Jimmy Carter

The three of the biggest world religions, the Abrahamic religions  ( Judaism, Christianity and Islam ) preach of a male god that has given the power to men over women. By these preachings women have become second class citizens the world over. In these teachings it is believed that women are the cause of the original sin, this sin inflicted onto Adam by Eve’s seduction or fall to temptation. And so we see the root of the evil placed onto women, their bodies and their sexuality. Women are constantly being judged by man for his lack of selfcontrol. Religion is and has been a catalyst towards creating culture and culture towards creating traditions. We are a world that traditionally abuses women and girls in the name of religious freedom.

HOW CAN RELIGION BE A HUMAN RIGHT WHEN IT GOES AGAIST HUMAN RIGHTS?

Religious scipture, dogmas, and ideologies go against the human rights towards sexual freedom for mainly women and gays

The Canadian bill M103; if it becomes a law or if it is even entertained as religious bigotry towards questioning religion will set a tradition, a culture, a precedence towards the merger of Govenment and religion and by that the death of freedom of expression. IF RELIGION IS NOT DEBATED TOWARDS REFORMING IT ,  HUMAN RIGHTS WILL BE OBLITERATED FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. If we deny sexual freedom by allowing sexual repression into the government than women’s rights will be turned back 200 years.

Women and men newly immigrated from countries that are dominated by religious extremism will more than likely find it very difficult to let go of their cultural and religious practices based on these religious fundamentalisms.

But my point is this if religion teaches men that they are above women, and religions create culture and traditions that are then settled into a culure to polute it with inequalites;  how then can it be put into to feminism as feminism is about women’s equality?

The answer is; it cannot. Religion without proper reformation and mediation cannot bring us towards becoming a modern civilization. We will keep waring, we will keep repressing each other in the name of the god and the dogma of that god. We will never come to true diversity, we will never experience true social justice, and we will never become a global community that is fair and just under the umbrella of these patriachal religions, that places government and spiritual control in the hands of men by placing women under men.

Right now the Liberal Government is pushing globalization and global citizenship or a world government by the union of councils like The Unitied Nations. The elite did this with the use of a patriachal religions back in 325 AD;  Constantine The Great united the Roman Empire by uniting religions but he gained control over his empire by denying female gods and placing male gods over the people; by placing sexual shame onto women; over half of society, he used men in his empire to oppress women for him. By the oppression of women he gave men a spureriority to repress the women of the empire for him. By repressing and abusing their own women they were actually abusing themselves by the false hierchy over them becoming more and more elite above them by the subterfuge. By the use of religion over the masses the worlds oldest elitist families have been steadily gaining over the average citizen. That is why the bigotry and hate in religion has not been reformed to this date as it is the deceit, deception, guile and cunning from the upper class to keep the lower classes lower by keeping the religious wars going; they steal and cheat from the common people.

IF A ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT AND A ONE WORLD RELIGION WERE TO FORM TODAY UNDER GLOBALIZATIN AND GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP, WOMEN’S RIGHTS WOULD BE DESTROYED BY RELIGION

To this day we are seeing multicultulism being the term used towards breaking down borders and reforming governments towards becoming a one world governmen through the UN to unite the world under one umbrella for the elites to take total control of the masses. We know from history that absolute power corrupts absolutly. With religion still in the bronze age; humanity will revert back towards more barbarism in the name of mass conformity.

In order for true democracy to take up root we must root out the darkness within the scriputres that are deep within all the worlds cultures and deep within us as individuals. We must be able to speak our truths and name our fears so that we can bring humanity and ourselves personally out of the darkness.
