Media pundits and activists Emma Gonzalez and Michael Avenatti have all taken swipes at white males during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation process, which is stalled while the FBI investigates an unsubstantiated claim of sexual assault from Christine Blasey Ford.
Gonzalez, the gun control advocate, called Kavanaugh a “privileged white boy.”
call your senators and tell them to vote no for Kavanaugh – the future of our country deserves more than a privileged white boy who’s Spent his whole life over-drinking and can’t answer a simple question without acting more immature about it than a 4 year old.

Avenatti, the creepy porn lawyer who represents the third and most outlandish Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick, also had something to say about “old white men.” Avenatti is a white male.
Avenatti and Cruz are both 47 years old.
These old white men like @tedcruz will say anything. They are now claiming that Mark Judge can’t testify publicly because he suffers from depression, etc. As the below shows, this is a complete lie. These misogynists must not know there is something called Google. pic.twitter.com/nYNdpgWhCS
