So she's from the old school, and she might be a "toothless hillbilly" but she has a good point. I don`t think she means that racism now is ONLY black-against-white, but she`s right that it does happen.
I completely agree with the "Miss Black America" comment... if there was a "Miss White America" it`d be called racist. Same if there was a white version of the MOBO awards (Music of Black Origin).

She may be a toothless hillbilly, but she has a good point. and seems to have a good heart. It seems like alot of people out there want to be a victim. So let the balcks be super sensitive about the n word, and gays about the F and Q word...But if whitey gets mad about being called honkey or cracker...no one will care. White peeps are not allowed to have pride about being white. Thats just the way it is. I'm not complaining, because I don`t care. Just sayin, cuse its true.

Let's not confuse a cultural double standard with racism; and it`s not a double standard that comes without cause. Things like the UNCF and the NAACP only exist because there was a time when it was impossible for African Americans to receive fair and equal treatment. There is no United White People College Fund because there has never been a need for one. There is no National Association for the Advancement of White People because we already run everything. It`s redundant. A bigger problem is people who think that they are owed something and don`t apply themselves to rising above. The real problem is the socioeconomic practices in place in the U.S. that are basically designed to discourage people in specific ethnic groups from becoming successful. Worst of all is the "hold us down" principle where a culture will hold back its own members.
