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.

She's absolutely right. Let's not equate, toothless, obese, Southern, and rocking in a chair on the porch with ignorant and racist.

I don't like the way she talks or takes care of herself, but she has a point. Sometimes as a white person there's a bit of the reverse discrimination going on. I don't see white scholarships or a plus factor for being white on college applications. And if I created one, I'd be a "racist" instead of "supporting my cultural heritage." Should I make a "european american" scholarship instead? (I'm against the phrase african-american too by the way. Sue me.)

The title is true and so are some of the things she's saying...but I just can't bear to watch her talking..

Interesting anecdote, it's quite an unfortunate situation.

'There is no inherant "white privelage" in Mexico.'

That's actually not true at all. "White" Mexicans tend to be in the upper classes in Mexico. They may not be the majority in Mexico, but are millionaires the majority of the American population? No, but they still have the most influence on the system.

A fairer complexion in Mexico is generally considered to be a positive trait.

'"white" or "European" looks are still strongly preferred in Mexican society, with lighter skin receiving more positive attention and foreign cultures considered to be "white", such as the United States, receiving deference'

Fair point about Mugabe's Zimbabwe. But that is a mad dictator trashing his country. In my experience in Africa 'white' is seen as probably wealthy and connected. That is generally a plus when dealing with those with the power, although there may be the odd backlash which can be ... problematic.

I'm a straight, white, middle-aged, middle-class male so you can call me whatever you want. Any apposite epithet you want, it won't hurt my feelings or make me feel downtrodden or vulnerable.

Because, all bullpoo aside, I lucked into the demographic with all the gravy. No credit is due to me, but the benefits are manifest and I'd be a liar to say I didn't appreciate it. It's wrong, but it works for me.

Gerry,

Never been to Mexico but spent many years in Africa and S.E Asia. Lot of white privilege.

racism isn't just words. It's the way people act towards you. Like I walk down the street and there is a man. The man yells something out and I turn around. The man then yells "what are you looking at?" in a negative way towards me. I say "I'm sorry I thought you were talking to me." The man then says "why would I want to talk to you." and I turn and walk away from the mennacing man.

I am a pacifist and have on numerous occasions been singled out by 1 or more black individuals who have wished me harm or purposefully made me feel unsafe or uncomfortable because I am not black. I'm not being racist. I'm stating a fact here.

You can be racist towards me. But it would literally be impossible for you to say anything racist to me in that would in anyway bother me. A person could call me a honkey or a cracker or some other racial epithet that I'm unfamiliar with and it would at no point even occur to me to be bothered by it.

That is what I have never understood. If you are proud of yourself and your heritage how could you ever give someone else the power to make you feel bad about it?

"Whites can never be in the "minority"."


Really? Try going to Tijuana. They hate us there and they outnumber us. There is no inherant "white privelage" in Mexico.

"Whites can never be in the "minority". A white person could move to Africa, and they'd still be "The Man"."

Which part of Africa? It's a big place you know.
For instance if you are white and of British or Australian descent and you own a farm in Zimbabwe; you will most likely be beaten up, robbed and/or murdered and your farm confiscated.

All of which is sponsored by Mugabe, who is (technically speaking) 'as mad as a wardrobe full of conkers'

She's wrong that black people aren't discriminated against anymore. They absolutely are and it's wrong.

However, white people are also discriminated against by black people. Not nearly as often, but they are.

Just as an example: They have scholarships that are awarded for ANY race, they have scholarships awarded to just an african american, girls (of any race), boys (of any race)....

not one for a caucasian only...

THAT would be racist.
