Fine, if you don't want to use the word Racism we can instead use Prejudice. The fact still stands, here in the US, people are still judged based off of the color of their skin.


Yes, they are. By people like you. It's not necessary and it doesn't justify itself no matter how much you pretend it does.

markust123-"Life happens for a reason."

So, racism against whites is 'life happens for a reason' but racism against blacks you will scream about to high-heaven?

Congratulations markust...you're racist.

"What? Like being passed over for promotion because some less qualified, less experienced black woman with less seniority got the job due to Affirmative Action? Or maybe all the scholarships you cannot apply for because you are white, not "a person of color". Or perhaps you refer to the zero interest {sometimes no interest} gov'ment loans to start your own business if you're white... oh, wait, those are only for "people of color"."

Oh boo hoo. When I was in the last quarter of training back in 1990 Boeing came in and interviewed a bunch of us. The minorities got all the the jobs. But you know what, I got a better job a few months later. Life happens for a reason. I'm not going to sit around and be the victim. I'm going to stay positive so that positive things will happen to me.

klaxor-"so he thinks that he's not a racist. "

Pointing out the fact that a good portion of a particular demographic dress in a certain fashion and tend to have really dumbass ways of spelling names is not 'racist'.

It is telling the truth.

While I do know a few whites that decided to name their children 'Delorean' and such, it's simple fact that if you look at the name 'Octavius' (yes, I met this girl) 95% of the population will know immediatly what her skin-color is. (and the other 5% will know, too, but will delude themselves into 'well, let's not stereotype')

(and I also consider a white parent naming a child 'Delorean' to be an idiot, as would a person naming a redheaded childe 'Rusty' when their last name is 'Hair'.)

Of course, these days telling the truth IS 'racist'.

"All you can see is the "races" that you believe exist (free clue - they don't really exist). "

- Fine, if you don't want to use the word Racism we can instead use Prejudice. The fact still stands, here in the US, people are still judged based off of the color of their skin. It's not always a direct judgment, eg. "I HATE THAT BLACK MAN", so people don't think they're prejudiced/racist.

Drawman's comment is a perfect example:
"Maybe if these "people of color" (is that this weeks PC term?) pulled their jeans up and covered their ass and stopped spelling their own names like Aireeeka"

He doesn't say they're to blame BECAUSE they're "people of color", so he thinks that he's not a racist.

White is a color. See, I run circles around you logically. And hey, people claim all kinds of crazy things about me and my race and age and gender and faith that I think are completely untrue, so, reverse racism seems pretty alive and well, don't you think?

200 years of oppression, segregation and social standards haven't given you guys enough of a head start already?

Now you're the oppressed....jeez, there's no pleasing some ppl.



You provide a perfect example of how the position you favour requires extreme racism.

You are so racist that you can't even tell the difference between people who are alive and people who are dead, let alone between different individuals in different circumstances. All you can see is the "races" that you believe exist (free clue - they don't really exist).

You've got two basic choices. Either you think that people should not be discriminated against based solely on what some people decide is "race" or you think that all people of any "wrong" "race" should be discriminated against. You've chosen the second option. You've also chosen to be dishonest and hypocritical about it, which is to be expected from someone so racis

markust123-" I also understand the opportunities that being white has given me in life."

And I also understand the opportunities that being white has hindered me to.

I once interviewed for a job as a Chemical Operator at a petroleum plant. The four finalists were:
Me (white/male): 15 years experience working in chemical plants.
Joe (black/male): 5 years experience as custodial worker in chemical plants.
Pam (white/female): 6 years experience as a nurse in a chemical plant.
LaShayshawndra (black/female): Exact quote, "I ain't never set foot in a plant in all my life."

Care to guess who got the job. ("Folks, looks like LaShaysahwndra is a DOUBLE-MINORITY!!! We got ourselves a winner.")

America has a long history of favoring white people.

So? China has a long history of favoring Asian people, Egypt has a long history of favoring Arab people. Mexico has a long history of favoring Hispanic people. Congo has a long history of favoring black people.

The point is, you don't build a civilization by being favored by other people. You do it yourselves if not in spite of other people.

Well, we have a black president now. He's the most powerful man in the world. I think that proves it is high time we dismantle all the social programs that favor minorities.

Oh wait... that's how he got there.

"This is how they get most votes: stir up racial tensions, make some surface preference for non-whites, but make sure you keep as many as possible poor, because if they have independence they might vote Republican."

- B/c the "Birther movement", that calls Obama a Kenyan is mostly Democrat....oh wait

Gerry, the fact that people think of it as a "myth" is part of the problem. It's part of the institution and society, as it's always been, and people blindly accept it.

Like I said, 200 years of having the ENTIRE system in your favor gives you A HUGE leg up, whether it's based on where you grew up, your families' education/wealth, or how society perceives you at first glance.

Now that being a racist douche isn't chique anymore, you say, "alright, we're all equal now"

"But you have all the money and jobs and aren't treated like a criminal b/c of how you look"

"Hey, I earned that&quo

@Gerry1of1 - Hear, hear my good man. Tell it like it is.
This is a prime example of a system overshoot in the sociological domain.

Klaxor

Only the Democrats are racist enough to put together an organisation like the KKK, and they approve of direct racism against whites while they harm the prospects of blacks and hispanics. This is how they get most votes: stir up racial tensions, make some surface preference for non-whites, but make sure you keep as many as possible poor, because if they have independence they might vote Republican.

I keep hearing about the myth of white privilege, but it's a myth. It used to be true, yes, but not anymore. Now it's a myth used to keep the other programs going long after they should be canceled.

How dare that black man violate the rights of that young white girl.

Hey I know, all you guys can get together and form a group.

You can call it the KKK.

"It stands for Kind Karing Kristians.... Yes, I know it's spelled wrong, it's more fun that way.... The sheets?... they're leftovers from our Halloween party... The moustache?... I'll have you know that Charlie Chaplin pioneered this style....The burning cross on your lawn?....Oh.... you got me there.... wait a minute, I know what you're trying to do.....I am not a racist"

Although it was a racist stance by the principal, maybe it was needed. Hell, where I live, 9% of males "of color" graduate high school. Yes, 9% while the graduation rates for the rest of the demographics are over 85 %.

Maybe if these "people of color" (is that this weeks PC term?) pulled their jeans up and covered their ass and stopped spelling their own names like Aireeeka, and acting like the big I am and paid attention and put a little effort in instead of lying back, smoking dope and hoping da man gave them a job to keep his PC numbers balanced rather than being able to give the job to the best candidate, that 9% figure would be a thing of the past and not whitey's fault.

"We don't have it good. We make it good. Because no one is going to help us except us."

I worked hard to get to where I am today but I also understand the opportunities that being white has given me in life. America has a long history of favoring white people. Over the last half century the country is slowly working out of that mind set but we're not there yet like people are pretending we are. Just because of dumb-ass luck of where and to who I was born I am not going to take that for granted. Is it too much to ask for people to put themselves in another persons shoes? I get so sic of the racists, bigots and xenophobes on this site. If you remove our skin we are all equally hideous.

It's a huge double standard. If a white principal pulled this stunt and offered the program to only white students, this would be the scandal of the decade, and we'd all be hearing from Rev's Al and Jesse. Where are they now ? But since the situation is in realtion to persons of color, they get a pass ? Bullsh*t. Time has come that they too should be held to the same standards for race relations.
