Brown the new privileged

 Okay, it has been a long beginning of this school year and trying for some distraction I tried to give a couple shows I used to like the benefit of the doubt and maybe just maybe the woke lecturing would not bleed into the new season, but I really didn’t think it would get worse.

Okay here is the scenario: What is politically correct now? Hue of skin color? Minority brown? Can I use, let’s just use, brown. She is brown and yes her pronouns are she, her. She also identifies as lesbian. Hope I met all the criteria up to this point. Anyway, this character who was last season homeless and has worked her way to being an intern in a hospital. Her girlfriend has money so she has a more current stethoscope, some sort of medical tech book, and she got a ride in a nice car with her girlfriend to work. The three interns getting off the bus see her and then they pounce on her in the hallway. They each lean into her face and point out “must be nice getting a ride while we have to take the bus, your privilege is showing.” Then another “nice fancy stethoscope, look at ours that barely work, you privilege is showing. Then the last, “nice to have that medical book of your own. We have to share and study in shifts, your privilege is showing.” Then when they walk away she slinks off into the corner to cry.

The girlfriend tells the upcoming intern that she deserves good things because she has worked hard for them. But instead of pushing back that this psychological bullying they decide to just buy the three bullies the same stuff she has not because they want to be charitable, but out of obligation for having nicer stuff you buy stuff for those that don’t have when they point it out to you and make you feel bad for having the stuff.

Premise: You owe others because you have more. Your hard work and merit have no meaning, but what you buy others to make them equal to you. It is that you should be ashamed when you earn something on your own merit. Then if you have something someone else wants then its okay to just bully the person by telling them their privilege is showing.

The trigger words in a temper-tantrum to buy them what they want just because you earned it but still undeserved to keep or enjoy.

Does anyone else want to scream at how wrong this scenario is? If you thought your words were like walking on egg shells before this nonsensical word salad is what is infiltrating our young people’s minds and consciousness.

I feel like eventually if I say “Hi” it will trigger some fragile, bubble wrapped, mentally unstable person who will try to call me on my privilege and demand some type of restitution.

I know it was a show but shows reflect or at least test the waters of what society is accepting to be true.

Kindness and giving should come from a good place in the heart. Not guilted or pressured by being blackmailed by being pushed to think you are the oppressor with all that privilege showing.

2 Corinthians 9:6-8
Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

Proverbs 12:11
Whoever works his land will have plenty of bread, but he who follows worthless pursuits lacks sense.

These show skips over key concepts like the heart of generosity. People do generally give to others in some way like donating money to feed kids, or donate clothes, so sign up for programs that help others. This generosity doesn’t come from a heart of jealousy, anger, or some random expectation.

Let’s me reminded where true love comes from:

John 4:7-8
Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

My prayer our society doesn’t fall into the lies I saw on that show because it was such a sad way to view people and how easy it is to turn on one another. It just builds division.

My prayer for whatever you are facing today. Know you are loved and you matter. Jesus will walk with you through it all and shall see you on the other side.

God Bless you,
