Do white men deserve the right to vote? That's a question up for debate, according to the trendy, progressive teen magazine, Affinity Magazine.
According to this piece, stripping white men of their right to vote would allow these men to experience the same oppression African-Americans and women once faced. Therefore, they will be able to relate better to systemic injustice.
“Historically, white men have had few problems voting and the way things are going, they will never understand the kind of injustice others have faced,” the author wrote.
The article went on further:
In contexts like these, identity politics can be helpful, empowering and contributing to an important learning experience. White men who want to become better allies always come across the problem of “I will never understand what it feels like to be systemically oppressed” but this proposal may further their understanding of minority needs and improve relations between different genders and races, which is the ultimate goal; equality.
While the identity of the author of this article is the subject of speculation by Free Beacon reporter Alex Griswold — mainly whether or not a 16-year-old Malia Rolt actually exists — the argument has caused a larger outrage.
The same argument was previously presented in HuffPost. However, it decided to remove the article from its website after seeing the backlash that occurred. Now, the trendy teen magazine is taking a stab at the controversial argument.
And like HuffPost, Affinity Magazine is receiving similar backlash:
