Black Authority @TheBlackChannelRhonda Rousey was the MOST HYPED fighter in the UFC and by @YahooSports for YEARS. Yet lost in 48 secs. . THIS is what WHITE PRIVILEGE is

TakeMobGeneral @TakeMobGeneralRT @mikaelherard:The contender, Rousey gets $3 million for that loss while Nunes gets $200k with win bonus. #america#WhitePrivilege
Ronda Rousey got 3 million for 48 seconds of getting her ass whoop, and declined interviews. That’s the epitome of white privilege.
I’m no fan of Ronda Rousey. Quite frankly, her “do nothing bitch” speech made me think she was taking a jab at stay at home moms. Then she said she would rather die than lose a fight. Great attitude to show the youngsters! Her little speech on Ellen on how she needed to have her boyfriend’s babies to make sure her life had meaning after losing a fight made me cringe. I was thrilled to see her go down in her initial loss. She needed it. But once in a while she would dodge questions about the mythical gender pay gap, so points to her for that.
And yet, this irritates me to no end. Ronda Rousey, a woman that one might think would be a female role model for breaking that MMA ‘glass ceiling,’ is accused of having white privilege for losing a fight. Not winning. Losing.
Is she deluded by her own ego? Yes. Is she a bad role model? Yes. Did she throw temper tantrums when she lost? Yes. But I’m sorry, her skin color doesn’t have a damn thing to do with it. If she were brown, black, or purple, I would still be condemning her behavior.
She doesn’t like to lose. But she will still go down as one of the best female fighters in history. Also, one of the biggest divas. But white privilege? Fuck off and find something better to worry about.
