Donald Sutherland Tells TODAY Show: 'I Am Ashamed Of Being A White Male...'


'Helen Mirren came up to me on the set and....she said, ‘You are the most privileged person on Earth’....I said, ‘How can you say that?’ And she said, ‘You are a white male.’” Co-host Tamron Hall wondered: “And your reply to that was?” Sutherland proclaimed: “There’s no reply. I was ashamed. I was stunned. And I have gotten more ashamed. It's interesting to realize that you are seen as an integral part of a group that many of whom are mendacious, misogynist, of bigots, racists, and it's appalling.'

'How can I give them a hopeful view now? How can I give them a hopeful view? I have a wife, I have a daughter, I have a daughter-in-law and a granddaughter. What do I say to them? What do I say to them? Their women’s rights have gone, you know? The environment has gone, minimum pay has gone. What do I say to them? How do I – you know, I can only say one thing, I am a Canadian. And that's what I am.'

First time I remember seeing Sutherland was Animal House in 1978 when I was 12.

Unfucking real. I can't stand this white guilt shit. If someone wants to find out just how real it is, move someplace where white is a minority. AND, he can stay in Canada, fuck em, who needs him.

I have a visceral reaction to this type of shit. The virtue signaling is pretty disgusting. He's just screaming out 'but I'm a good whitey' over and over. Also, I'm growing tired of all the 'phobias' and 'ogynys' being tossed around by the left.

So a white man says: "wow. I am a symbol of privilege and now I recognize that and want to help fight for women and equal rights because it's important to me as a human being and I'd like to not be a part of society that teaches its children differently, because I'd like to try to be part of the solution." And then in the comments he gets ripped in butvmeanwhile if every person would realize their privilege we wouldn't have half the problems of today. Unfuckingreal. Maybe if other old white dudes listen to this old white dude and see what the problem is then we can finally move towards a solution. I'm thankful for him recognizing what's going on without acting like he's the victim.

If he feels that way about it, he can give up all his ill gotten gains. Give them to some under privileged family that is struggling in the hood, or better yet, switch places with them. Nothing is worse than being self whiteteous.

You wanna know who has privilege in this country?

Liberals. You have the media, academia, and hollywood, all of which utilize their tremendous influence over society to demonize Trump and his supporters at every turn. Just try living in our shoes for a few days. It's hell on earth. Also as to white privilege -- bullshit. Tell that to a white coal miner in kentucky or west virginia, or a white homeless vet living under a bridge in Cleveland.

The only real privilege we have in this country is wealth. If you have money, then life is easier than if you don't. Simple. Doesn't matter if you are white, black, blue, or purple. Tell me again how a black daughter of two black physicians is under-privileged vs. the white daughter of a coal miner in Kentucky, or steelworker in Youngstown.

Solution to what...? It's a problem that doesn't exist, invented by the left as an excuse for the multi-generational failure of certain groups of people.

People like Sutherland really should stick to what they do best ... act. Because when they aren't playing the part of a fictitious person they illustrate just how moronic they are in real life. If he's that ashamed, he can move. Hell, he can just end it all and be done with it. I damn sure won't lose a second of sleep knowing he's not around.
One thing for sure is these folks are nothing but hypocrites. We don't see them giving their riches to the poor down-trodden people and assuming the life their "privilege" kept them away from.

'I Am Ashamed Of Being A White Male...'

Donald, I too am ashamed of you, not for being a white male but for being an ashamed liberal. If you could, you would man up and be grateful that other people protect you and your family's right to live in a free and prosperous nation. Yes, I'm talking about your Canada.

Canada's own version of soldiers, sailors and airmen serve 24x7 to protect you and your family from the evils of the world. Yet, your ideological urges overwhelm your ability to see them or the sacrifices they make for you. Shameful that you are incapable of explaining that to your wife, daughter, daughter-in-law or granddaughter.

I feel pity for poor Donald Sutherland. Here is a marvelous actor who has worked hard his whole life at his craft, become very successful for his efforts and he's brought to his ideological knees by a woman who shames him for his hard work and success. Maybe both he and Helen Mirren should donate all their money to the Black Lives Matter movement, renounce his citizenship and live out his days in poverty in Soweto.

And then it hit me! Donald Sutherland is CANADIAN! And as we know, Canadians will, (and do), apologize for anything and everything! why you sneaky little Canuck, Donald! You really had me going for a minute. Nice try!

How about being proud of your heritge... being the best that you can be, honoring your ancestors. If nothing else, STOP APOLOGIZING!!! And change your name from Donald to Dummy... it suits you better.

Bruce Jenner was also ashamed of being a white male, no wait, he was ashamed of being a male. Anyway Donald, there are proceedures that may suit your self image. You can be whomever you wish to be.

Donald, if you are so ashamed of being a white male there are four solutions. Transform into a female, (not possible), transform into another race, (not possible), kill yourself, (possibe but inadvisable), or seek professional help immediately (recomended). I am so sorry your life sucks.

Donald - right now I'm ashamed that you are a Canadian. Grow some spine buddy.
It seems like you took your role in "A Dry White Season" a little too seriously.
Get yourself out of the Racial paradigm. Our bodies are only vehicles which carry our spirits though this life.
Our spirits have no color, so racism makes about as much sense as a Chevy owner dissing a Dodge owner.
We drive our bodies around until we crash or run out of gas - at which point we leave.

As a fellow Canadian Donald, may i give you some advice? Since you are just another actor who doesn't really know what's going on in the real world, why don't you join the "Hamilton" actors who are also f'd in the head.
Nov 20, 2016 at 5:20 PM | Unregistered CommenterSteve
One of the characteristics of a good actor is the ability to suspend disbelief- otherwise known as believing fiction as reality. This is what permits them to display real emotion and pathos while standing in front of a plywood set as the cameras roll and 50 crew members adjust lights, sound, and pull cables around. I suspect this is why someone like Hillary had pretty much all of Hollywood in her corner, and why those of us who live and work in the real world find most actors to be pretty silly when they aren't on screen.

What utter bullshit. The liberals want inclusion and togetherness and they come up with this shit. What's the real agenda because it ain't inclusiveness.

More fake news propaganda from the left. Pathetic. What would that Russian/English jewish old hag know anyway? She has no idea what it is to be a white man. Let's look at the tens of millions of whites who live in abject poverty in America shall we, how privileged are they. All of the homeless white male veterans who fought for this country, how privileged are they? All of the engineers and scientists who have to go to the back of the line as "affirmative action" candidates who are less qualified get your job or worse yet H1B visa workers getting your job while you get retrained as a barista, how privileged are they?

This stupid smug uneducated cow who makes millions pretending to be someone else thinks white men are more privileged then she? Wake up bitch, if you get your way and the muslims take over, you'll find out what privilege is and beg for white men to rule.

Because we live in Fantasy Land? Wake up, you're never going to be treated fairly, no matter what your skin color. It's called the human race. Cry all you want to, but in a thousand years this shit is going to be the same.

Donald Sutherland has had an amazing acting career, continuing to appear in movies and movies only, a very hard thing to do and to maintain over a life extending into very old age.

But if you ever saw him on The Actor's Studio, it was clear that the guy can't speak coherently when he is not reading lines. There's something cognitive that is missing there.

I'm just going to disregard this disgusting display of cowardice and mental weakness.

The only thing I don't intend to disregard is the new knowledge that Helen Mirren is a sexist, racist bigot. Thanks, Donald!

Most of the non-white males in the world would give their left nut to be a white male. I wonder if there's something in the water in Hollywood that's causing all these celebrities to go bonkers.

Spreaders of the "White privilege" MYTH are mentally ill. They have Low Self Esteem, and Negative Self Worth, and need Mental Counseling. Those who promote this hate-message are Passive Aggressive cancers attempting to kill off the Healthy Life around them.
Patients suffering from delusions of "White Privilege" should be removed from any contact with impressionable Youth.
Patients suffering from delusions of "White Privilege" should be monitored for depression & possible suicide and shown how to do so neatly so they do not leave a mess for others to clean up.

Actors are really ridiculous people. In the best of times they are vacuous idiots but at times like this you can see they are an embarrassment to God himself. This silly rant is best ended by him holding a gun to his head on live television and killing himself. At least he would be consistent.
