White people should pay extra taxes because they are more privileged than people of color (PoC) according to an article titled, “It’s Time for White People to Pay for Privilege: The Equality Tax.”
The article, published on The Blogger Den, says: “Racist employers, a disproportionate targeting of minorities by law enforcement, racial wage gaps, poor inner city schools; these all contribute to what is an undeniable reality for minorities.”
The writer says that starting with an extra five percent tax on white people will begin to fix this problem. He argues that white people should pay a higher tax to make up for their privilege.
A single white man should pay a five percent “equality tax,” while a single white woman would only pay 4.5 percent in the “equality tax.” There would also be breaks for married couples while the largest breaks would be for non-cisgender (e.g. homosexual) whites.
The extra tax revenues would be redistributed to minorities in a form of reparations for past and present struggles.
The article says: “That’s $1,348 for every US minority individual or roughly $3,000 per minority household on an annual basis. While $3,000 could never rectify centuries of abuse, it could at least give minorities the financial tools to compete in a white, male-dominated society.”
The article acknowledges that white people might be upset about a privilege tax. (The author must be a real genius to figure that out.)
The article concludes with: “We must continue to voice our opinion, especially in this racist, misogynistic environment post-Trump. They must understand that their economic success was only made possible by the blood and sweat of minorities.”
The author confirmed that if you were born white, but identify as a different race or otherkin, you would be void from paying the Equality Tax. You would just have to submit proof that this transformation is genuine.
Which begs the question: how do you submit proof that you self-identify as a different race? We should contact Rachel Dozier for tips.
The idea that white people should be punished for the color of their skin is nothing revolutionary since we have always had people in this country who believe they have rights to other people’s labor and property, simply because they have more of it, but are always looking for another excuse to claim the right. Who do they think they are?
A black woman even launched a website called Reparations.me where minorities could ask for money from white people as a form of reparations. On the website, minorities have asked for money for all sorts of things like college tuition, engagement rings and laptops. The website also encouraged white people to be proactive and post personal offers of reparations.
