Truth time before your god:

Are you really saying that you believe that White people in the United States do not enjoy social and economic privilege today, and have not done so historically?

Yes or no will do. Thank you kindly.

I understand the refugee crisis in the EU. What does that have to do with diversity?


What do you think is happening here?

The US is taking in refugees on a daily basis! Take a gander at Minneapolis! The info is out there and I sure as hell am not going to spoon feed you!

Look it up!

Odd as hell that under the United Nations we can bring in refugees from other countries, set them up with homes, welfare, train them for jobs, yet how many homeless citizens do we have in this country?

So we should eject all non-whites from our country and our Constitution?


Gotta love the extreme emotional over-reaction of the left. How about treating everyone the same?


Awesome!

Liberals and Democrats have been there for at least 50 years; glad to see the Republicans and Libertarians are getting on board finally!

You have to remember that for many here, their opinions are truth, if they believe it, then it's fact.

That's why any sort of reasonable discussion can be so tedious here. So many have forgotten (or never knew) the basic idea of reasonable debate: if a claim is made that is not commonly accepted knowledge, the claimant is responsible for backing it up.

I see you also have a bloody spot on your forehead ...

White genocide, lulz.

This gets funnier and funnier.



Genocide isn't funny...

But seeing as this "genocide" is really just a nonexistent fable ubiquitously told by butt hurt white supremacists, it's hilarious.

That's my vote!

Be respectful and kind to everyone you meet.

Treat others well, and compliment people who are extra nice, or patient, or kind, or helpful.

Treat everyone the same, what a far right and truly heinous concept!




Treat everyone the same?

So,for example, sell a wedding cake to whomever comes into your wedding cake baking shop with the means to pay?

What a GREAT IDEA! We've been saying this same thing for years!

I'm glad you had a breakthrough, Gma.

All is fair in love and war.

The people who are supporting this (while idiots) did not start this nonsense or war on common sense.

Turnabouts fair play.

Let's sum up these 7 pages...

There are some people here who honestly equate removal of a traitor's racist flag (per it's designer) to the removal of a memorial to slaves (scarcely honoured nation builders)...


Sometimes I wonder if I hold ATS' membership in too high a regard.

I don't think people actually want to learn from their mistakes.

I honestly believe they enjoy repeating them, just hoping for a different outcome.

What's that saying. . . something about doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results?

The definition of insanity..............the gubnent does it a lot.

Diversity... we are all different. How do you propose we go about treating everyone the same despite our differences?


Simply by treating everyone the same.its only hard for commie social justice warriors.

in 2015, there's no such thing, anyone blaming "white privilege" is just making excuses for their s#itty decisions. I work in a business that puts me in contact with some of the most successful people in my area, and I know plenty of black AMERICANS holding GREAT jobs, with great educations. Vice Presidents, CEO's, etc. etc. Time for people to quit blaming others for their deficiencies, and take responsibility for their own lives. YOU LIVE IN AMERICA WHERE ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE, WE'RE ALL PRIVILEGED.

I was responding to a post in which the poster seemed to sneer at diversity as if it's a bad thing. Is asking for clarity a bad thing? I could have misinterpreted and I won't know unless I ask.

I'm all for treating everyone the same. How do you propose we go about getting there?


The left defines "diversity" as an arbitrary concept based only on skin color. In medical school an Eurasian kid not apply because Asians were not considered minorities under diversity. Black students were given consideration under diversity due to "historical prejudice." So, while I took the bus to school my African American colleagues drove in their BMWs because they had doctors for parents and went to the most prestigious prep schools but because of the amount of melanin in their skin,they got special consideration.

Thus the hypocrisy of the American left.

History is not always going to be politically correct, and it will probably always offend someone. I think that it is best to leave it alone and not try to rewrite it, especially when it comes to destroying monuments and digging up graves.

You are right. the government dos not treat everyone equally. African Americans get special treatment by our government. Of course you find that racism offensive? Yes?
