Meghan McCain Reminds Me of the Privilege of White Women.

( I use to watch “The View” from time to time, and I thought the show was pretty interesting. They seem to have a range of perspectives and when it came to political matters both the liberal and conservative side was represented. You would know who the Republican and Democrat panelist were; at times the debates could get heated but I could see both sided. I’m an independent and I understand there is a liberal, moderate, and conservative side to both parties. This seems to get lost in discussion at times. As much as I thought the show was pretty cool, I found that the addition of Meghan McCain was a turn off. More than any other panelist she reminded me that white women have a privilege that I find to be horrible. They can behave in a manner that is rude, condescending, and unprofessional while it is understood they should never reap what they so. No one on that show is more disrespectful than Meghan McCain…yet she still has a job.

I was not a fan of the politics of her late father, Senator John McCain, but I respected him as a veteran and on his stance regarding the current President. There have been too many times whereby Meghan McCain invokes the legacy of her father while it seems she hasn’t begun establishing her own. Furthermore, for as much as she loves to use daddy she seems to defend a President that disrespected her father and other veterans. I’ve never quite understood how she could do such and have peace.  However, nothing upset me about her more than her ability to talk over others, and completely disregard their perspective. Everyone has a right to be heard as long as everyone is Meghan McCain. She and Joy Behar have had epic battles and as a moderator it seems Whoopi Goldberg is always in a situation where it looks like she’s trying to reign in a petulant child.

Recently, on eh show Goldberg had reached her limit while trying to go to commercial and told McCain, “Girl, please stop talking, please stop talking right now”. Granted there are many viewers that agreed with Goldberg…there were some that wanted her fired. Privilege is on the table…because though many fans of the show are disgusted with Meghan McCain it seems obvious that white woman is not about to lose her job. She can be an entitled angry brat that disrupts the flow of the show, but we all have to deal with it. However, it’s okay to call for Goldberg’s job. To keep the balance of political conversation I’m not saying replace her with a Democrat. However, she can be replaced with someone like maybe Ana Navarro who is s Republican that can constructively add to the discussion.

We have to deal with Meghan McCain on our TV because she’s an entitled white girl that is standing on her dad’s legacy and some sort of validation of her voice not realizing she needs a voice of her own. Until she figures out how to have an adult conversation without throwing her privilege, I think she should refrain from speaking…though we know that’s not happening. The thing is Meghan McCain is the kind of political voice that reminds me a white woman is not my ally, and in many instances we could never explain to her why she’s a part of the political problem.
