The term "white skin privilege" was first made popular dureing the 1960s by the Weatherman terrorists as they launched their bombing run against "Ameriikkka," calling on whites to give up the power their skin color gave them and join the global race war the radicals believed wqas already in progress. Weatherman were a fringe group most of whose ideas were rejected by the dominant culture. But unfortunately their views on race were not. In succeeding decades the idea of "white skin privilege" became new default position for racial crusaders and race hustlers alike who believed that white skin privilege was alive and well in our society--not because white Americans were actively racist, but because they enjoyed the invisible privileges and prerogatives that go along with their skin color.
But in this searing pamphlet on the racial realities of contemporary America, David Horowitz and John Perazzo show that in fact the most insidious bias in our culture today is black skin privilege. Black skin privilege means the press will fail to report an epidemic of race riots targeting whites for beatings, shooting and other violence in major American cities over the last several years. Black sin privilege has created an optical illusion in the liberal culture that white on black attack are commonplace events when in fact there are five times as many black attacks on whites as the reverse. As Horowitz and Perazzo note, in 2010, blacks committed more than 25 times the number of acts of interracvial violence than whites did. Black skin privilege exists in the affirmative action programs of our system of higher education and in our culture, where a black racist like Al Sharpton could be regarded by th e national media as a civil rights leader and then hired as a TV anchor by NBC. This pamphlet gives the statistics and hard numbers the mainstream media conceal. It also probes the double standards and double talk that has come to dominate the way America talks when it talks about race.
