This from Slate:
I am a single mom, and my 16-year-old Natalie is the light of my life. I want her to have a better life than I did, and that’s meant working two jobs, taking on overtime, and saving up for her college since she was little. I don’t have a lot of money, but with the money I’m saving, she should be able to attend an in-state public school without graduating with debt. Without those savings, I would not be able to afford to pay for her college and she’d probably have to take on student loans. Natalie recently came to me about her college fund. She said that she wants me to donate it all to her BIPOC friends as “reparations” and “wealth redistribution.” She’s always said that she wants to go to college, and she knows that it would otherwise be hard for her to afford it. Moreover, many of the friends in question come from affluent professional two-parent families. I haven’t touched the money, and I think that I should hold onto Natalie’s college fund until she’s 18. At that point, she can choose how she wants to spend it. Despite telling her that, she’s accusing me of being greedy and racist for not giving her friends that money. I understand where she’s coming from, but it feels disrespectful to my efforts over the years to help her. Am I wrong in wanting to hold onto her college fund?
I’d say this isn’t real but I’m sure it is from other stories I’ve seen from the popular culture.
Yesterday I said I refuse to buy into collective guilt.
This is what happens when someone doesn’t refuse (which is why I wrote this post).
This girl is lucky to have a single mother that had the means and wherewithal to save up for her to have a debt free college education.
The daughter doesn’t appreciate that and instead attacks her mother for not wanting to give that money away in a mea culpa to minorities for grievances she did not commit.
I actually feel sorry for this girl in a way. She has been emotionally abused and manipulated to turn against a loving mother that worked hard to give her a better future and turn towards an abusive ideology.
Does this girl think that for one second that if she did give away her college savings she’d be given absolution? Of course she won’t. The cult will demand more.
This is what they cult wants, for those who have to sacrifice everything in pursuit of absolution for past grievances.
That’s what makes this a cult. They know the people they are demanding sacrifices from are not responsible for the grievances so absolution will never be granted.
It’s just a sisyphean to appease a cult that will never be appeased.
Refuse or they will take everything from you, including your children and everything you do for them.
The only thing the cult leaders who abuse people like this deserve is a choice: the wall or the fall.
