If somebody hates you because you're white, they're an idiot. If you spend time worrying about what an idiot thinks of you then you're the bigger idiot.

Unless it spills into some kind of violent confrontation just be happy doing you.

Why Americans get so bent out of shape over name calling, protests, perceptions and non events is beyond me. There are people out in the world that have encountered actual life threatening violent racism, including whites...to cry about names or being looked at funny is trivialising the seriousness of what they go through.

My girlfriend calls me a dick at least 3 times a day, let's start a few thousand threads where guys can moan about how they aren't actually dicks and how others thinking they are makes them feel. Maybe we can bond and start some kind of I'm not a dick movement.

If your not in the US I wouldn't expect you to understand.

These idiotic narratives we keep discussing actually reach and affect the masses who rely on television for their main source of information.

Just comb through the thread and look at what people think.

It's called affirmative action.

In a white majority country you should and would expect a white majority in the workplace and education system as well.

Why is it that any other ethnic group can use examples of genocides and slavery when it's white people who are brutalizing the other races but when I reverse the rolls and use an example of people oppressing white people or other ethnic groups oppressing other ethnic groups all of sudden it's irrational ?



Ok...Against my better judgment, I will take the bait...deep breath...please don't spew a bunch of stuff from a skin-head flyer....

...Can you provide an example of a population "oppressing white people?"

how does affirmative action not qualify as an instance where me being white puts me at a disadvantage ???

Why don't you read about the Irish and Ghengis Khan as an example.

You must not know early European immigrant history in the early 1900's in the US.

Before clicking on the link just read the excerpt and try to guess the race of those 'trolls' aka potential terrorist who shoot up churches... (not decades ago, like a year ago).
lets call them ignorant, uneducated, or etc to justify their 'racial' stance.

This is America. this is the truth. we need to stop camouflaging and project what racist means.
people who points out whites are the most racist groups of people on earth shouldnt be called racists....
and finding marginal acts or 'words' rather of retaliation from minority groups doesnt simply tip the scale. you all know it.
an innate profound hate is not compared with frustrating mentality of fake Equality.



Old Navy released an ad with an image of a smiling interracial family wearing their clothes on Friday and some people — shall we call them trolls? — freaked out. Many lambasted the San Francisco-based company for showing a mixed race family. Most of the haters threatened to never step foot in the retail store known for its cheap stylish clothing again. Amid all the hate, there was some love.

And really it all starts with ourselves as individuals.

Sure, some of us come into life with more opened doors for opportunity. Some of us come into life with next to nothing.

That said, if we all worked individually to become better people -- and strove to become the best versions of ourselves we could be -- the "other stuff" that plagues our society would fall away.

Instead of trying to live up to other people's expectations and society's expectations, if we mastered our own potential we'd probably find less racism, sexism, class divisions and social impoverishment in the USA.

DArk-skinned people are not the problem. I don't think the vast majority of lower and middle class whites are the problem either. As you say, many of these atrocities were carried out by elites on behalf of whites.

I'm mostly talking about this narrative that people have that white people can't do/wear/say/enjoy X because of actions carried out by people with our skin color that happened decades ago. Also the narrative that whites are always privileged, have no problems ever, and are always rich and evil racists. I've seen this type of thiking everywhere. And the type of people who think like this also will lash out at Asians, and other minorities because they see them as having privilege. I've seen them lash out at gay men. I've seen them lash out at ftm transgendered people as well. I'm talking about the social justice community/tumblr and so on. Not any ethnic communities. A lot of the people who have this way of thinking are themselves white.

To me, people are just equal, and everyone needs to be treated the same, regardless of gender or race.

I totally agree. In order to change the world we must first change ourselves.

you know this is only true in your head and not in reality; reality where people get refused service for being black... 3 weeks ago.
or people get outrage because a star wars character is black and has a lead role, or outrage because a game randomly generates skin color and some of the main characters turned out black. and so on. should we ignore this?
or statistics in church burning and shootings?
who are these ignorant people you ask and you can assume which race they are...
to me, i would rather what the OP is complaining about, than be on the receiving end.

in your world its all peachy and were equal. but in reality, some people cant experience certain things because of their ethnicity.

You've never been a white guy living in a black neighborhood where the tables are turned.

I've been held at gun point jumped turned away from stores and all kinds of crap. Yet I still don't hold it against an entire race.

If goes both ways buddy there are bad people everywhere in every culture.

Matter of fact I would put money on it it's more dangerous for a white person to live in in a poor black neighborhood then vice versa 100%

Google Tumblrinaction and you will see what I am talking about.

In my mind we are all human beings, we are all equal, and while racism exists it is wrong for it to exist.

Now, according to social justice types, me stating that everyone's life matters, and every one is equal is considered a racist statement.

I'm not in the demographic that you are talking about who are mad about black Star Wars characters, unless you think all white people are the same?

And you can see from my post history I am only 23% privileged, making me underprivileged despite being white, so I understand what its like for your life to suck. I am just stating that PC warriors are insane and so are the racist lunatics.

wow.
Im have seen more whites get welcomed in black culture than vice versa.

in fact, a lot testament to that are examples in pop culture, music, fashion etc.

an Urban white person is, all things but a menace; quirky, irreverent, cool, has style etc. in fact, i know a lot of minority neighborhoods where if a non minority walks through everyone sort of talks or exchange or nod in solidarity.

what youre saying must have been so specific to you its not applicable.

Urban whites, have a cache of exploits when it comes to diversity. a white can dress urban and walk through Harlem NY with no issue, whereas a black in cowboy boots will not tread some areas in the south.! yea... prove me wrong. and ill start 'googling' for proofs too. my experiences werent caught on video, maybe that makes my points less poignant..

you miss the point here. the demographic against those star wars characters will always be the same. no asian person will get their panties caught in a bunch over that. why should it be frowned upon to point that out. the ones against a fake ad which portrays a mixed family are always the same. those against a black game lead character are always the same; nevermind there was no problems with main characters aliens or robots, but black ewww... i never seen blacks writing threats because the lead characters in videogames were almost always white, if not a robot or alien creature.

so what now. you want to pull recent ( like last 5 years) statistic of hate crimes, killings motivated by hate, church burning motivated by hate, do you want to guess their ethnicity. or do you want to google first then come up with a rebuttal.

we cant compare these things with the pointing out of racism like the OP, or saying whites are probably the most racist sub species on the planet is far fetched. ( eliminate religion or poverty, there would still be a group firmly against an ad which portrays a mixed family... you guessed it.)

I'm not talking about ethnic groups at all. I am talking about social justice warriors, who come in all races and the white ones are quick to tell other white people they are racist cultural appropriators for liking rap music or anything "non-white." They would consider those urban whites (of which I suppose you can say my sister is one) as evil white racists for culturally appropriating black culture.

Example: The whole white dreadlocks controversy.

Some Asian people got mad because a museum had a 150 year old painting of a French woman in a kimono in one of their exhibits. This type of thing happens in all demographics.

Blacks kill whites, whites kill blacks. It happens all the time. They are an extremist minority. I don't know anyone who is wanting to kill black people or burn churches. That is like saying all Muslims are going to blow you up.

Whites are not the most racist subspecies, every group has racists. Branding an entire race of a billion people as racist is in itself racist.

youve just cemented my argument then. whites calling whites racists for liking cultures other than their own. (probably call her, your sister 'N' lover. fact , not fiction)
i enjoy country but im not white. but the people i hang with who dont like country would never call me racist.
what other race would do or say something so extreme. even in asia, interracial couples are more accepted as long as traditions are upheld, but hating or self hating is not even a topic.
