‘White Boy Privilege’: Teen Performs Amazing Poem About Racism (VIDEO)


EARLIER THIS YEAR
A 14-YEAR-OLD BY THE NAME OF ROYCE MANN PARTICIPATED IN A POETRY COMPETITION. HIS POETRY
CENTERED AROUND THE ISSUE OF WHITE PRIVILEGE. THIS IS A
14-YEAR-OLD WHITE STUDENT WHO PERFORMED WHITE BOY PRIVILEGE
AND WON AN AWARD. THE VIDEO OF HIS PERFORMANCE DIDN’T GO VIRAL
UNTIL THE SHOOTING OF ALTON STERLING. I WANT TO GIVE YOU GUYS A
SNIPPET OF HIS POETRY, THEN WE WILL DISCUSS IT. IT IS INCREDIBLY POWERFUL.
TAKE A LOOK.>>TO BE HONEST, I’M SCARED OF
WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE IF I WASN’T ON THAT ñ IF THE TABLES
WERE TURNED AND I DIDN’T HAVE MY WHITE BOY PRIVILEGE SAFETY
BRACKET TO PROTECT ME.>>ROYCE MANN’S MESSAGE WAS A
PLEA FROM A 14-YEAR-OLD WHITE MALE GOING TO A PRIVATE SCHOOL IN ATLANTA. IT LET EVERYONE SHARE
HIS PRIVILEGES.>>I LOVE IT BECAUSE WHEN I SEE A
POLICE OFFICER I SEE SOMEONE WHO’S ON MY SIDE.>>I’M JUST TRYING TO BE
TRUTHFUL ABOUT HOW I WOULDN’T TRADE PLACES WITH SOMEBODY AND I THINK
A LOT OF PEOPLE SOMETIMES AREN’T SO TRUTHFUL ABOUT THAT.>>RACIAL DIVISIONS SEARED
AMERICA LAST WEEK AFTER MINNESOTA, BATON ROUGE, AND
DALLAS, MANN’S POEM STRUCK A NERVE ONLINE. MANY LOVED IT.
OTHERS ATTACKED HIM. MORE THAN 8 MILLION PEOPLE HAVE SEEN IT.>>EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE THE
PRIVILEGES THAT I HAVE. EVERYONE’S STORY SHOULD
BE WRITTEN SO ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GET IT READ. I GET THE CHANGE CAN BE SCARY
BUT EQUALITY SHOULD BE.>>I’M NOT ASKING ANYBODY TO GIVE
UP THEIR LIVES AND FIGHT FOR EQUALITY. I HAVE OTHER DREAMS TO
DOCTORS ASKING YOU TO TRY AND BE AN ALLY, DO YOUR SHARE. WHEN YOU
SEE SOMETHING THAT YOU THINK IS WRONG, SPEAK UP.>>FIRST OF ALL, DID THAT KID
HAVE A TELEPROMPTER?>>REGARDLESS OF WHETHER YOU
AGREE WITH HIM OR NOT, THE WAY HE SPOKE, HE WAS SO WELL SPOKEN.
I WANT TO HIRE HIM.>>WHAT A SMART, AWARE,
SELF-AWARE, EMPATHETIC KID.>>YEAH, IT’S A REALLY GOOD
FEELING BECAUSE YOU HEAR ALL OF THESE TERRIBLE STORIES AND ALL THESE PEOPLE DEFENDING THE
VIOLENCE AND THE HATRED, THE BIGOTRY. I HAVE HAD SEVERAL
MOMENTS THIS WEEK ALONE WERE I ASK WHAT I AM DOING WITH MY
LIFE. THIS IS JUST A GIGANTIC WASTE OF TIME. PEOPLE HAVE
ALREADY MADE UP THEIR DECISIONS. AND TRY TO REASON WITH THEM BY
TRYING TO GIVE THEM EVIDENCE OF WHAT IS HAPPENING ISN’T GOING
TO WORK. BUT IT OBVIOUSLY GETS THROUGH TO THE PEOPLE THAT MATTER. TO SEE SOMEONE YOUNG
UNDERSTANDING THAT WHITE PRIVILEGE DOESN’T MEAN THAT YOU
ARE A BAD PERSON BECAUSE YOU ARE WHITE. IT JUST MEANS THAT YOU
GET THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT. YOU GET THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT
WHEN IT COMES TO ADMINISTRATORS AT YOUR SCHOOL, POLICE, WHEN IT
COMES TO ANYONE IN POWER. THAT DOESN’T MEAN THAT YOU HAVE DONE
ANYTHING WRONG, IT JUST MEANS THAT THERE ARE CERTAIN STEREOTYPES WHETHER THEY ARE
SUBCONSCIOUS OR SOMETHING THAT PEOPLE ARE VERY AWARE OF THAT
PLAY A ROLE IN HOW PEOPLE TREAT YOU. THAT’S IT.>>I HAVE BEEN PULLED OVER BY
THE COPS 52 TIMES, I WOULD HAVE A DIFFERENT VIEW. BUT I HAVE BEEN PULLED OVER FOUR TIMES IN
14 YEARS. I DON’T LIKE THE ABUSE OF THE WORD BRIDGE, BRIDGE TO
THE OTHER SIDE. IT’S SO TIRED AND OVERUSED. BUT WHEN THIS KID SAYS
IT IS TIME TO LET GO OF THAT FEAR, IT IS HEARTWARMING.>>HOW PROUD WOULD YOU BE IF
JOSIE PERFORMED LIKE THAT?>>WHEN I FIRST READ IT, I
THOUGHT MAYBE HIS PARENTS HELPED HIM. BUT THEN YOU SEE HIM
PERFORM, AND I THINK IT’S GREAT. HE HAS A WAY ABOUT HIM.
I LIKE THIS KID.>>I THINK HE’S GOOD TOO. I GREW
UP IN ATLANTA AND THE SCHOOL THAT HE ATTENDS IS IN CITY WHERE I WAS BORN AND RAISED FOR A LOT
OF MY LIFE. IT IS A HEAVILY STRONG AFRICAN-AMERICAN
COMMUNITY, MIDDLE CLASS AND LOWER. I’M SURE THAT HE HAS SEEN
HIS FAIR SHARE. ATLANTA IS A HIP-HOP COMMUNITY AS WELL, FROM
HIS EDUCATION TO WHAT HE SEES WHEN HE IS OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL I’M
SURE HE HAS BEEN ABLE TO DEVELOP HIS OPINIONS ON WHAT IS GOING ON.

  1. I only don't like it when people say the term "white privilege" because it creates this idea that the only reason white people tend to be more successful than black people is because of this so-called "privilege." Ya, there probably is some privilege, but pretending that the struggles of African-Americans in poverty is simply white privilege is a straight up lie. Whatever privilege you think I have, please take it away, because I can't stand that people think my accomplishes mean less because I'm white. Stop using skin color as an excuse.

  2. White privilege is the racist belief that whites are advantaged, without question or even facts. Portraying whites as privileged sounds an awful lot like those who portray all Jews as money hungry. It implies the same kind of racist belief that is much farther from reality than the stereotypes about Jews. No real anti-racist would promote such racism, those who do promote it are in fact racist.

  3. Why is all the top liked comments discouraging this video that wants others to support equality? What is wrong with you people? He isn't hating being white nor is he trying To make "kids hate themselves." He is trying to address the the fact that people aren't treated equally due to factors that they cannot control. How dare you to discourage the progression of equality.

  4. Son – Royce Mann – actorMom – Sharri Stewart Mann -SJW (actor)Dad – Barry Stewart Mann (actor) doesn't look like a guy you would label as a 'mayo man'.

  5. People hear this kid and thinks he hates white people?  SMDH.  He's right.  I am very glad that I was born a white, straight, male.  It's the easiest rung on the ladder to succeed from.  And I came up lower working class in a broken home.  Obviously it's not a guarantee of success, but it surely gives you a head start.  If you don't think so, you need to open your eyes.

  6. assuming the thumbs down were clicked the very second 'they' saw the title smh

  7. wow, i did NOT expect the downvotes to be higher than the upvotes here.

  8. 'Amazing' poem? No. It was absurdly racist and filled with stereotypes and lies. 'White Privilege' isn't real.

  9. A kid recites a poem in which he judges people based on the colour of their skin and TYT calls it "amazing." Martin Luther King Jr. is spinning in his grave.

  10. I guess I`m Privileged par excellence: White, male, heterosexual, cisgendered, from upper class family, roots in old european nobility.
    I`m sorry.

  11. Lol all the sad white people disliked the video, this boy speaks facts

  12. Sacrificing the health of children to ideology A+ and a back pat. Do you want a wing or a thigh of a kid liberals ya want white or dark meat? Let us not teach pride & strength, let's teach guilt & dependency. Well at least were all screwed together.

  13. is this boy serious??? Being WHITE is easy?! you stupid rich shit head if YOU didn't experience what other white people go through don't assume that just because a person is white he/she got it easy

  14. Did nobody tell him he's not even white? LOL look in the mirror kid.

  15. Now I'm actually kind of pissed that he isn't even white and was claiming all this bullshit about "white privilege" and calling it "white boy privilege" If you say "white boy" and you aren't white, that is the exact same as a southern old white man calling a black male a "Black boy" Which we all know everyone would be pissed about. This kid is now racist because he falsely believes he is white so he thinks he can racistly talk about whites.

  16. Look at the like to dislike ratio TYT you race baiting white hating bigots.

  17. He and his family should leave their cushy white privilege life and shed their white guilt so minorities can benefit from the ill gotten gains made by his family. After all, they didn't earn what they have, they obviously benefitted from being white and don't deserve the life they have so I challenge these folks to move to the 'hood, live among the underprivileged.

  18. I'm a Liberal and I'm getting sick of this SJW movement thing TYT, I'm done.

  19. Can someone just slap the light brown off this kid and make him albino.

    (Before people that support this retarded video start saying "You should check your privilege you racist white person!"; fucker, meet me in person and I look like someone who grossed the border from either Mexico, South or Central America as I have been told by many students in my school life.)

  20. ****vomit****

    why do kids feel like they know so much about the world with ZERO life experiences. I guess all those privileged white kids I went to high school with that are in jail or working dead end jobs need to learn how to tap into their "white privilege"

    Its sad that kids are growing up these days being ashamed for being white

  21. That 14 year old is smarter than every single one of the disliking retards on here! Congratulations u should go back to 7th grade!

  22. That's amazing to see!! 🙂 amazing to see young kids brought up right! ! and educated!! and being from south!! if you haven't seen "white privilege 2" macklemore & Ryan lewis. check it out please and share the message!! 😊 please

  23. It's starting to seem like white people are more likely to complain about racism than minorities.

  24. This boy is not whipping his back while he spoke the poetry so I down voted it.

  25. if the American system was built to keep black people down then the system is doing a shity job. black people mixed up in that poison culture need to stop blaming everybody else for their problems.

  26. What a pathetic little shit and all the liberal turds are gushing over him.

  27. What a preposterous load of garbage. Indoctrinating 14 year old boys into thinking they are sinful because of their skin colour and sex is the most regressive attitude i have ever heard in my life. Kids mom probably wrote this poem for him. Almost all the claims he makes in his "poem" are fully refutable. We all know what this is really about: Black people and women want men to start giving them more money rather than having to earn it. Their new trick is to indoctrinate children.

  28. so this kid goes to a private school? I'd say he's experiencing rich privilege more than anything else. rich black people are much better off than poor white people. rich privilege is the biggest problem, regardless of race..

  29. Poor lad, private school and he's been brainwashed. Tell homeless white folk about their privilege

  30. Love this kid… he's basically the poem version of Macklemore's "White Privilege" part 1.

  31. Lol i hope this kid gets fuckin stomped for this shit 😂
    And im * usually anti violence but this time…🙈

  32. white boy privileged? must of skipped my white family and friends. he's just a kid that came from money. and this girl talking in the video…he's so well spoken lol that's what money buy's stupid

  33. This child has been put down so many times for the color of his skin, he finally started believing it. The blacks who shoved this belief down his throat need to go to jail. "White Priveledge is a racial slur. You were just judged based off the color of your white skin, and given a label and insult, without them even knowing you. That is a hate crime.

  34. This kid will end up committing suicide because of this video.
    His parent(s) really, really, really fucked him up.

  35. What about Turkish privilege? you know after the Armenian Genocide. OHhhhhhh yeah, TYT denies it happened.

  36. It would be so funny if the teacher came to this kid and said "we need to bump you from reciting your poem tonight. We need to let Rahjeet preform hers". And you know the kid was looking forward to this night. After all he spent so much time on it. Mommy and Daddy are there. Sorry kid! Affirmative action. You're just a white boy.

  37. This kid is a Jew. If anyone thinks that he's white, or even looks white, I have a bridge to sell you

  38. Racial division was created remember that Obama spent 8 years doing so white privilege was made up by racist blacks and liberals

  39. Royce Mann is amazing. This is so so great! I think a lot of people here don't understand what male white privilege is – it's not about being ashamed of being white, or about being ashamed of being male, it's all about recognizing the innate privilege granted to white males and about using that privilege in order to help others reach equality: or, as Mann brilliantly puts it, it's about "turning that ladder into a bridge".

  40. I bet his teachers are so proud at how deeply he's been indoctrinated with this nonsense…

  41. Hey TYT. Have you ever thought that maybe the reason so many of your videos are MORE disliked than liked…. is that you are wrong?

  42. It's a shame his talent and sensitivity are being exploited to espouse such destructive rhetoric. The Left know how to brainwash gotta give em that. Appeal to the emotions, inflate the young with UNQUESTIONABLE moral truths, convince them they are ABSOLUTELY right and set them loose.

  43. What a retarded little kid, not only is this not "amazing" but its not a poem, what a brainwashed little idiot.

  44. Look at this self hating creature trying to make us feel guilty for shit we didn't do lol pathetic.

  45. Im a white male, Both my parents were dead before I was six my father passed away in bed next to me. I was raised by my grandfather and will be graduating college in the spring. Im still throwing up from your first poem, please stop. Its pretty simple really love your fellow man even when everyone isn’t watching you read a bogus poem. Be proud of your race and culture, over the centuries none have escaped without guilt. Maybe its because I wasn’t “born at the top of the ladder” but I would never denounce my people like this. Im where I am because the struggles I’ve gone through have made me stronger. P.S for the parents your kids gonna get shoved in a locker when he hits high school for this bullshit you definitely wrote.
    Take your privilege and shove it. I refuse to spend what little time I have on this Earth propagating shit that gets no one anywhere. Rant over.

  46. lol Go to Italy and see if there's Italian privilege, Go to Turky and see if there's Turkish privilege, Go to China and see if there's Chinese privilege, Go to Saudi Arabia and if there's Saudi Arabian privilege, Go to India and see if there's Indian privilege, Go to Mexico and see if there's Mexican privilege.

  47. For those saying, "White privilege is not about making people feel guilty", Let me explain a few things. 1st It's not a privilege to not be discriminated against. 2nd Someone being discriminated against is not an automatic benefit to someone who is not facing discrimination. 3rd I know this will really trigger some people, but discrimination against white people is absolutely possible. If you want to raise awareness to someone's problems talk about their problems, not how easy I have it. Lastly white privilege means minimzing white people's problems. It's telling a poor white man he's privileged over a rich black man. It's saying anything white people accomplish can't possibly be solely by their own efforts. And it's saying that it's wrong that I have things in society I deserve just like everyone else. So excuse the "white fragility" but hopefully this will help you understand.

  48. I guess anything can pass as poetry nowadays. This kid has been brainwashed to hate white people.

  49. I'm Hispanic and successful… Regardless of skin color…. I rose above. This kid is being exposed to rasicm 💯… By the left ideation that white privilege exists.

  50. He is so mature and loving human being i am really sorry to say this but you are a bit ignorant if you don't think this is true he isnt insulting black nor white he is telling the world what is happening how come when a black person say how they feel oh they are just complaining but when a Caucasian person says this is how the world works he was just coached to say this please no hate but get out of your land of rainbow and unicorns amd open your eyes this boy did something about something he knew was wrong amd i applaud him i hope we can take notes remember the first step of changing the world is knowing what's wrong then doing something about it change starts with you have a blessed day also White Privilege isn't about rich or sickness it's about feeling safe around cops and not be judged as robbers murderer or rapist just by the first look to actually to be able show your personality for yourself

  51. The only cough "white privilege" I saw was the black dude wanted to talk the entire time, but the 2 white people kept cutting him off. Then finally he speaks one sentence, and cut!

  52. I'm so lucky to be white! It means that I'm automatically racist! It means that people don't help me, because I get enough help already! It means that I get to apologise for owning slaves, even though I don't! It's great! I definitely recommend being white!
