Liberal site calls for racist ‘privilege’ tax on white people

white privilege tax racistAn article at the left-wing Wesplain site advocated a racist “privilege” tax to be levied only against white people, with the money to be redistributed to minorities, the Daily Caller reported.

According to the Daily Caller:

The article, titled, “It’s Time for White People to Pay for Privilege: The Equality Tax,”argues that all minorities face economic disadvantages.

“Racist employers, a disproportionate targeting of minorities by law enforcement, racial wage gaps, poor inner city schools; these all contribute to what is an undeniable reality for minorities,” the article claims.

To fix this, white people should pay a higher tax to make up for their privilege. The writer suggests a five percent tax to start with. A single white man should pay a five percent “equality tax,” while a single white woman would only pay 4.5 percent in the “equality tax.”

Not only is the proposed tax racist and sexist, it discriminates based on sexual orientation.  According to the Daily Caller, a married white family would pay an extra four percent in taxes while a non-straight white person would pay “only” 3.5 percent more.


So what happens to the money?

Wesplain — the site whose Twitter masthead says “you listen” — explained: “That’s $1,348 for every US minority individual or roughly $3,000 per minority household on an annual basis. While $3,000 could never rectify centuries of abuse, it could at least give minorities the financial tools to compete in a white, male-dominated society.”

In other words, it’s all about Marxism.

“Never has so much, been given to so many, who accomplished so little,” said one Daily Caller reader.
