@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.

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.

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?
