Default "White male resentment"

If a white male were to speak disparagingly about "black resentment," or "Latino resentment"--or even of "female resentment"--then he (or she would be pilloried by others.

And rightly so.

But it does appear that white males are the last group that can be disparaged--with no repercussions.

CNN Opinion writer Jeff Yang describes the new Joker movie as a reflection of "white-male resentment"--which (supposedly) gave us (gasp!) Donald Trump as president.

Does anyone else see a double standard here?

The left in this country, is the embodiment of double standards otherwise known as hypocrisy. That is a result of emotionally driven decision making. Their positions are not based on a foundation of truth and logical thought, but on emotional responses to events or situations. Therefore, many things in their lives contradict preconceived notions of fairness based on their feelings about certain topics.
