A viral video circulating on social media shows a young man purporting to be a Black Lives Matter member commanding a white woman to drop to her knees and apologize for her so-called white privilege to “show solidarity for the situation.”
“Excuse me. I work for Black Lives Matter. … Since I work for that company, my CEO has told me to come out today and to bring you on your knees because you have white privilege,” the video footage shows the man saying to the woman.
“So if they see that a white person is getting on their knees, that shows solidarity for the situation. And could you just please apologize for, you know, for your white privilege? Just apologize. It’s big. It’s large in this country.”
Watch her response below (disable your adblocker if the video doesn’t appear):
The woman eagerly complied, either because she really believed the irrational nonsense being spewed by the man, or she was scared for her life.
The man then concluded his rant by kvetching about President Donald Trump.
“This country, we have that president, Donald Duck, that clown in office. You know he’s brought a lot of bigotry, and you’re not a part of it, right?” he said.
“No,” the woman responded.
The clip ended with the man allowing the woman to walk away.
The video drew mixed responses, with proud white Americans who’re rightly unashamed of their race trouncing the woman for bowing to such appalling ignorance, and others defending the woman by arguing she was just scared for her life.

And what was he going to do if she denied his requests?
He ran up on her fast! That would’ve scared any woman for a man to do that!
You can tell she was intimidated into submission. She did what ever he said just so she could get away from him safely.

White people like her are the problem. If you want me on my knees, you’re going to have to put me there yourself, and I’m betting you can’t. That punk would’ve been out cold the second he told me that. I do NOT apologize for something I never did 🖕

I will not submit
I will not bend the knee except:
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, & of those on earth, & of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Get off you knees woman, you don’t owe this guy 2 seconds. Grow a spine and tell him where to go.

She was scared not too, who knows what he might have done to her had she refused. Mind you that dog approached a woman, not a white man.

I will not spend my life apologising for something that I have no part in. I’m tired of hearing that minorities can’t be racist because they hold no power, well then, I guess I can’t have privilege because neither do I!

The nonsense spewed by the man was irrational because the facts don’t lend any credence to the widely bandied-about and media-adopted theory that George Floyd’s death was the result of racism, or that “systemic racism” is even inherent in American policing. In fact, the actual facts and evidence strongly suggest the reverse.
“A 2015 Justice Department analysis of the Philadelphia Police Department found that white police officers were less likely than black or Hispanic officers to shoot unarmed black suspects,” award-winning intellectual Heather Mac Donald of the Manhattan Institute noted in a piece for The Wall Street Journal this week.
Even more striking is this fact: “[A] police officer is 18½ times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male is to be killed by a police officer.”
The man’s words were also irrational because the president’s rhetoric and actions — neither of which have been wrong — had no bearing on what happened in the Democrat city of Minneapolis in the Democrat state of Minnesota, where George Floyd was killed roughly a week ago by a police officer working under a black police chief.
Tim Waltz – Democrat
Jacob Frey – Democrat
Medaria Arradondo – Minneapolis Chief of Police – Black
Amy Klobuchar – Democrat
Tina Smith – Democrat
Ilhan Omar – Democrat
Michael O. Freeman – Democrat

However, reports have emerged suggesting that the guy who recorded the video is a troll. The evidence includes the following clip of the same guy asking another woman — this one apparently not white — to apologize for “what happened to Floyd Mayweather.”
White woman takes a knee and apologizes to “Floyd Mayweather”.

That people are being so easily manipulated into kowtowing to such ignorance does raise certain questions about just how brainwashed Americans have become.
