    it`s funny because it`s not true! Actually, i`m sorry - it`s not funny. But it`s certainly not true and i guarantee nothing like this has ever happened to this Marcus guy.

    It seems like lately someone`s been putting 4 stars for every link regardless of if it`s good or not. Proof? One of those clicky-clicky links wasn`t working for at least 5 minutes, but already had 4 stars (when no one was able to view it).

    His assumption that her grandfather owned slaves because she`s white is racist.

    It`s more like this guy was playing the race card to get the job. Plenty of black people make anti-white comments. But of course, that`s not racism . . . . not much it isn`t.

    Using racism to fight racism.
    And who gives a flying F about the NAACP.
    If your group still refers to you as a "Colored People" yet get horribly offend when called that out in open, you don`t deserve credibility or recognition. Last I checked, I`m colored too. "White", if you can call it that, is a color too.

    Yeah, couldn`t get past the first thirty seconds.

    Racism does exist, because instead of trying to be a part of a functional society, most minority groups clump together and hang with people who look like them.

    Doubt this?

    Volunteer for a social service project and count how many minorities spend their free time trying to make society better.

    I organize these events in areas with sizeable minority populations and despite that fact 90% of my volunteer turn out is white people. You can make up all the bullcrap excuses you want, at the end of the day the problem is racism. Minorities by and large aren`t invested in American Society or Culture, they are invested in helping only themselves and those who look like them out without a bit of consideration for those of us who have tried to look beyond race.

    So where does that leave me, a small town white dude? It leaves me at the end of my patience.I am not apologizing for a damned thing.

    yes, Liindsayy. companies will always hire an African American over a white regardless of qualification. That is why there is so much poverty among the whites, and blacks are all predominantly upper-middle class.

    i like the fact ( if it`s true) that it starts off as 4 and then has to get voted down. I know i rarely ever vote on anything unless i don`t like it, which, if other people are like me then things will get rated lower than they should be.

    Ugggh. I found the narrator really sour, abrasive, and annoying as all get-out. The receptionist was well-meaning and trying to be sociable. Yes, she was more than a little clueless about black history and heritage, but verbally attacking her isn`t going to accomplish much other than to make her shut down in similar situations in the future. And in that scenario, I`m sure the narrator would be quick to complain about how she was cold-shouldering him. ~sigh~

    this is what I thought of this video, I seriously hope black people aren`t like that douche narrator (I haven`t met that many black people in my life since I lived 25 years in Mexico and the few I did meet were delightful):



    He got easily irritated at the socially inept receptionist, and in that state he probably overreacted to the interviewer. Had I been the interviewer, I would`ve said: "do you still want to be considered for this position or not? You can complain all you want to the NWC... whatever, I did inform you that my previous judgement would not affect your chances. Your reaction to it on the other hand, does."

    I wonder how he would`ve reacted to black people asking him the exact same questions.

    its funny cuz this happens to me all the time...i use my "white" voice on the phone so i can schedual an interview and they will say something along the lines of "we may hire you on the spot!" or some bullpoo but when i get there, dressed in my big boy clothes mind you, they tell me THEY will call me back in 2 weeks or so (which never happened.) i go back after two weeks to see they hired the skin head biker guy that had his interview right after me.

    but i guess if you aren`t black you will never experience something like this...especially in a mostly republican state...

    And THAT`s what`s wrong with the world today. Belong to a minority and see discrimination hiding behind EVERY f`ing tree.

    I will not deny that there`s is racism and all people are treated equal, but come on!

    Will you seriously push everyone to overthink banter and light conversation?
    Don`t you think THAT is the thing that creates the trenches we all live in today.
    I don`t like to talk to you because i need to overthink everything i say to make sure to not say something that could possibly offend you.

    Watch the movie Gran Torrino with Clint Eastwood. This is, to my opinion (scene with the Polish hairdresser), the best movie that relates to this subject.

    Exactly.

    I also think Eddie Murphy summed it up quite well. "White people can`t dance. I`m not being racist; it`s true. Just like when white people say black people have big lips, it`s not racist; it`s true. Black people have big lips, white people can`t dance"

    Big difference between saying somethinng thats true, and discrimination.

    that was drating stupid...is this video to suggest only white people are racist? Or to suggest that all black people are whiney assbags that expect everyone to walk on eggshells around them in fear that said black person will cry to the naacp or some other retard group that feels that you still need an advantage in every aspect of everyday life in order to succeed in this incredibly racist country. try staying in school, getting a job, working hard for what you have, and stop expecting that everything should be handed to you simply because white peoples ancestors were douche bags. video was retarded as was the douche bags that made it. stick to the call of duty videos man.

What am I, an American American or a New York State, American? Or am I Norwegian American where we were slaves to the Danes for a couple hundred years? Hmmm? Didn`t know that some white people were slaves?! What, think you had that act all to yourselves? If blacks stop using the "N" word it will go away.

    I get it, there is racism. But, this neither illustrates the problem well nor helps solve it. He is as just as guilty of stereotyping.

    There is no history of slave ownership in my ancestry (my family are all recent immigrants or lived in the north). Even if they did, I PERSONALLY HAVE NEVER owned slaves, and I cannot be held to account for the actions of people I have never met at a time when society was different.

    I have never asked a stranger about their racial ancestry, that said, MANY people are very proud of that heritage and LIKE to talk about it. (I had a Mexican friend who made sure everyone knew his family was Spanish in origin, even though his parents were both born in Mexico.)

    I have often told people they don`t sound like their voice on the phone. That comment is rarely about race.

    I don`t know any manager who would let themselves be bullied into hiring someone in this way.

    I don`t think he`ll be very happy at a job he just guilted his way into... at least I don`t think I would be.

    Also- I think that it`s normal to be a bit racist/stereotypical towards groups of people. Stereotypes come from differences in cultures and I don`t think it`s necessarily a negative thing. BUT- I think it is important to remember that an individual is not representative of an entire group. Easier said than done.

    Also- this video was ridiculous, people aren`t this stupid. At least I hope they aren`t.

    FWIW: "Black" can mean a heritage from a lot of different countries, as the people in different parts of Africa have widely differing skin tones. For that matter, "whites" can be very light Scandinavians or dark Mediterranean people. There wasn`t always a slave owner in the mix. For that matter, not all dark-skinned people are descended from slaves.
    Doesn`t excuse the jerks portrayed in this vid, but I find it hard to believe this is commonplace.

    Or maybe his great great grandmother had a consensual relationship with her slave owner, that happened as well you know, plus if he says all black people sound the same then all white people must sound the same, why is that different?

    @Frankii: Nothing a slave does can be considered consensual. I don`t mean to shock you, but slaves were not considered people by the law of the land and had no freedoms whatever. Sex with a slave-owner was often an expected duty, but you can never call it consensual.

    I do know that racism is alive and rampant in America today, but this is stupid. Nobody does this. Way to use extreme hyperbole and a completely fabricated situation to weaken any type of real argument you were trying to make.
    If the company or its employees actually were racist, they would have been much more sly in not hiring our friend here.

    How is this different from people being surprised when I tell them I`m Australian? I`ve been on the receiving end of EXACTLY the same comment; "you`re Australian? I thought you were British, you`re so well-spoken..."
    Offended? No. More like sympathetic; "I`m sorry you can`t see past your stereotypical understanding of different groups of people..."

    OMG guys, really? How do you get so offended over this? It`s not meant to be taken seriously, and it`s certainly not a black attack on white people... holy poo. Stop getting all up-in-arms over this because that`s just embarrassing. I guess you have to know Reckless Tortuga to get that it`s meant to be funny. *RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE*... stop it, seriously. If it doesn`t fit your humor, then fine, but there`s no point in crying over the hypocrisy and double-standard nature in the video because I`m sure EVERYONE is aware of it, and it was obviously intentionally over the top and ironic. I like Reckless Tortuga. I`m honestly shocked at all the negative comments.

    It`s a good thing for whitey Marcus really needs a job, otherwise he`d get his thug cousin to beat him up in the parking lot.

    That sounds like just the kind of thing I`d like to avoid in a person, or a coworker for that matter.

    I have blue eyes too and always get asked if I have nordic ancestry, I just say I`m not sure, the receptionist worded it oddly, but it`s not an offensive question.
    Plus you don`t only get light skin because you`re mixed race, you could also be of north african descent or some other location. Skin colour is a really diverse thing across the world, when did people start trying to divide themselves into `black` or `white` when in truth those are the only colours that nobody is?

    All of you who are saying this is exaggerated must not be black because as a black female, I can tell you this is completely true. (except the part about the people being so apologetic, people aren`t always that respectful). I love that videos like this are out here so that people who are racist can see how hilariously stupid their way of thinking is and hopefully bring about change. There`s no need for discrimination of any kind against anyone. We`re all just people.

    @Lindsayy honey do you actually know what affirmative action is? My guess is that you think its a law that requires companies/colleges to accept minorities so that it is deemed "fair". I`m sorry to say that you have been misinformed. (and please do your research before trying to state facts, it only makes you look immensely imprudent) In many cases, the "law" isn`t really a law but a mere suggestion by the state`s legislation. Not only do many do companies cheat the system by hiring military veterans or disabled people because they count too) but the implication of ONE minority(in terms of sex, financial status, race)is enough to get the law off their backs. So trust me, white people aren`t losing any jobs to other races due to affirmative action. That would be like saying The Emancipation Proclamation freed the slaves or that Christopher Columbus discovered America. Remember that "history" is "his story", its always one sided. Do your research.
