A video on MTV News is offering a series of New Year’s resolution specifically for “white guys,” telling them “you could do a little better in 2017.”
 
A dark-haired woman says to the camera, “First off, try to recognize that America was never ‘great’ for anyone who wasn’t a white guy.” Another woman asks rhetorically, “Can we all just agree that Black Lives Matter isn’t the opposite of All Lives Matter? Black lives just matter; there’s no need to over-complicate it.” The Black Lives Matter movement was founded by leftists and its leaders lionized by liberal media, having become involved not only in protests against alleged abuse of black people by police, but also in partisan politics.
 
 
A white man joins in the video and says, “Blue Lives Matter isn’t a thing,” in a reference to the insistence on the part of many Americans that the safety of police officers in the face of criminals should also be a public concern. He is joined by a black man who says, “cops weren’t born with blue skin, right? I mean, yeah! They weren’t born blue!”
 
 
As for comity between racial and ethnic groups, a white guy warns fellow white guys to not claim to have black friends, because “nobody who has black friends says that they have black friends.” Adding to the down vibe, a black man in the video says, “And just because you have black friends doesn’t mean you’re not racist,” and added, “You could be racist with black friends.”
 
Feminists get their licks in, too. As for “Mansplaining” —  which is an instance when men speak to women in a way that is deemed condescending -- white men are told: “Stop doing it.”
