Chelsea Clinton: Teach “White Children of Privilege” to “Erode that Privilege” Over Time


Well… that's rich.

Chelsea Clinton is now lecturing other white people on teaching "white children of privilege" to "erode that privilege" over time.

Chelsea, of course, is the daughter of President Bill Clinton and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

She is objectively one of the poster children of "white privilege."

Though Chelsea lives a relatively "easy" life compared to most of the American public, she is telling other white people to teach their "white children of privilege" to erode it.

But that raises the question…

How exactly has Chelsea eroded her own privilege?

What has she done to lead by example?

More details on Chelsea's tone-deaf comments below:

The Clintons are known for their wealth.

They have multiple homes and are within the top of the 1 percent.

The Daily Mail reports that Chelsea made these comments during a "Women for Biden" video call:

Chelsea Clinton says she wants her three kids to understand that they are 'white children of privilege' — and to 'erode that privilege throughout their lives' in an effort to make sure that all Americans have the right to vote.

The 40-year-old former First Daughter spoke with Massachusetts Democratic Representative Ayanna Pressley on a 'Women for Biden' video call today, and the two discussed the US' history of voter suppression, and the ways some people still face challenges in voting today.

Chelsea said that while she taught them about the importance of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, she also explained how that victory was 'incomplete' because many Americans have spent the decades since fighting for their right to vote.

'My children are young,' Chelsea said, according to Just The News, 'but we believe that they're young, but still citizens.

'So we talked about the ratification of the 19th Amendment, and Women's Equality Day, and about how fundamentally incomplete that victory was. So not to say it wasn't a victory and it wasn't important, but that it was so fundamentally flawed.'

She pointed out that while white women were awarded the right to vote in 1920, many other women — including black women and Native American women — were not.

The 19th Amendment prohibited the government from denying the vote on the basis of sex — but it didn't guarantee the vote to all. It didn't ban local and state-level laws, like poll taxes and literacy tests, from being used to keep non-white voters from the polls.

These weren't banned until the Voting Rights Act of 1964.

Chelsea, who lives in New York with husband Marc Mezvinsky and their three children, also alluded to laws and hurdles that other Americans face when it comes to voting.

'These fights aren't just in our history books. These are still active, ongoing fights,' she said.

The full video of Chelsea's comments can be viewed below:

Chelsea Clinton also appeared to suggest that voters are still being supressed from being able to vote.

This is becoming a popular talking point on the left.

Specifically, Clinton claimed that Americans with disabilities have challenges voting.

According to Breitbart:

Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton said she was teaching her children to “erode” their “white privilege” over time during a national Women for Biden organizing call with Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) Thursday evening.

Clinton said, “You know, 40% of Americans with disabilities report that they have real challenges voting in person. And so in states where there haven’t been, kind of, no-excuse absentee voting or where there hasn’t been the introduction of early voting yet, you know, it still isn’t, kind of, easy, fair or equal for many Americans to vote.”


Pressley said, “You’re really modeling that which my mother certainly believed, which is that a parent is a child’s first teacher. And I so appreciate that you’re providing that full education, because we know that often there is a revisionist history or a sanitizing or filtering of history that does not tell the whole story.”

Perhaps Chelsea's comments would be better received if she actually practiced what she preaches.

However, it appears that she remains one of the poster children of "privilege."

Until that changes, her comments will continue to fall on deaf ears.
