1) Got denied a job because you weren`t a minority 2) Got called a racially offensive term and it was "OK".
Any discrimination positive or negative based on race is racist.
Secondly, the biggest reason there are more white people in most jobs in the Western world is because, big surprise, there is more white people in the Western world. Just like there`s very few rice farmers in the fields of Japan.
Whites are the majority in North America and Europe... probably Austrailia too, but I`m not sure, but world-wide, we`re the minority by a fair bit.
Yeah, there is white-privilege in lands settled by whites, and there`s Asian-privilege in Asia. Why aren`t you raising a stink over there too?
This is called bullpoostill segregating people by jokes now. Black guys call white guys Crackers and white guy can`t laugh of negro Tuesday or say """"the N word"""Stay classy America, stay classy
No, definitely NOT. Its funny when a black guy laughs at it but not when a white guy laughs at exactly the same thing.
There is a completely different set of standards, rules and attitudes depending on what color you are.
This is called `racial equality` in the 2000`s.
When I was the only white guy at a job I used to have all the other guys called the sale KFC had on Tuesdays "Negro Tuesday." I never figured out if I was allowed to laugh or not.
That`s the spirit!
So it`s a bad time to mention KFC also had a Special on fried chicken at the same time?
racism: discriminatory especially on the basis of race
its not a hateful discriminatory, just dividing people by race; there`s no "reverse racism".
Personally, I feel like both white and black people feel like their too goddamn entitled to something. This is a selfish time we`re living in...everyone wants to be the most important person.
And to LuvSushi:
So when did we stop letting black people into the miss America pagents? When did we take black history out of history classes?
For those that say BHM is not racist, I guess you think affirmative action isn`t racist either...
the country is already leaning that way, as it is now, minorities have an easier job finding work because of equal opportunity. yes, everyone should have an equal chance at a job, that should include whites not prohibit higher of whites. by instigating a required limit it forces employers to judge by race and not skill. if a clean, well educated black guy and a clean well educated white guy both entered my office for an interview, they both have an equal chance of making it, but if a gangster/poor speaking white dude came in and a clean black guy but they have the same education background...the black guy is getting hired, he portrayed himself as having a better work potential.
@madest: I hope you were being satirical...its true that the only reason racism still exist is because we are forced to look at race; allowing minorities to abuse the system because of race (medicaid, medicare, education money) is just perpetuating the issue.
Umm, maybe once the whole racism thing goes away, i.e. everyone has the same opportunities in this country, regardless of race, then people will get over it. Until then, we need to keep pointing out how ads like this one are maintaining racist attitudes and stereotypes that continue to marginalize persons of color and maintain White privilege.
So the people being discriminated against need to get over it, so that white people still stop discriminating against them?
Anyways, everyone needs to get over this whole race thing, especially black people. At this point they are the ones who are overtly racist, and although I understand that their racism against whites is actually justified I think that unless one of us gets over our discrimination issue we`re just going to be caught in a cycle of `justified racism` forever.
How nice for you.
>implying you know my race
I`m half european, half american indian. don`t act like I don`t have anything to get upset over; but it didn`t happen to me directly. I live my life as MY LIFE, not my ancestors.
Oh, I wish it were that simple and I am all for it. That is until I`m called the "n" word by a random idiot. Then my horns grow and ....well, it`s not pretty.
Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.
actually, there are genetic differences in "race" that typically go across the entire race and yes, there are a few exceptions. its the reason blacks have black/dark skin despite being born in say canada or alaska (where its not needed like it was when they evolved in africa), its the reason their hair is the texture it is as well, same for the other 2 races. yes, there are only 3 races, Mongloid, Caucasoid, Negroid. Race is a "man made" trait to begin with, in other animals, we call it species or subspecies, we don`t refer to it as race...
IkeRay...... wow, mongoloids?! caucazoid?! These are totally baseless, antiquated terms that tell me you`re getting your information from a biased place. Race is a socially constructed concept. In other words, there aren`t distinct biological distinctions that make up "races". Whites have far more privilege in our society than persons of color, privilege that we take for granted on a daily basis. We don`t need a White history month, we get to enjoy the privilege that comes with being White every day.
actually, there is a latino history month...
"Yes but there have been 0 winners that weren`t black in the Miss Black America contest."
and yet having a contest for "Miss White America" would be racist...
blacks complain about racism too much, its a double-standard (they can complain about whites but not vice versa) much like women complain about men too much. we aren`t living in the 1800`s or even 1900`s (none of these have been a problem since the `60`s); just let it go and we can live as a society...
I`m sorry but black history month in and of itself is racist. no, the other 11 months whites aren`t patting themselves on the back for their achievements...we don`t only talk about MLK or `insert other famous black person of your choosing` during February; hell MLK day isn`t even IN february...
secondly, the ad probably has "black history month" written all over the top of every page, not just this one, and its not uncommon to have a section in the supermarket/store for "ethnic hair products". its not racist because they have a different hair makeup than caucazoids or mongloids and it requires more oils (which would be bad in the other races` hair).
What about all other cultures ther`s no Asian history month or Latino month.
Yes but there have been 0 winners that weren`t black in the Miss Black America contest.
Anyway, Miss America is pretty much a white contest. In the last 51 years there has been about 6 black winners and only one Asian winner (2001).
