On Dec. 30, actor extraordinaire and Twitchy favorite Nick Searcy responded to a Yahoo! Parenting article, “7 Things I Can Do That My Black Son Can’t,” with his own lengthy, must-read Facebook post on the lessons he teaches his own adopted son. The Yahoo! piece was disturbing, wrote Searcy, because it’s “not really about this man’s son. It is about this man’s politics. It is a defense of every leftist lie from #WhitePrivilege to #HandsUpDontShoot to #IcantBreathe, all of which are simply poison.”
Just two days later, Oprah Winfrey found herself in hot water with the #BlackLivesMatter movement, telling People magazine that she was waiting for some leadership to evolve from the movement and present a specific list of changes that need to be made along with the steps to realize those changes.
Searcy reached out to better understand the “white privilege” crowd. Here’s just a selection of tweets from a Twitter conversation that attracted a large number of voices.
