Not a full blown rant but still true..

I run into a lot of articles lately, or hear in street arguments, where some sort of discrimination has been committed against different people. At least a lot of them using 'discrimination' as their defense. It happened because I am.....( insert the right defense )

I am not saying that majority of these victims are not right. You can be discriminated against your Race, Gender, Age, Sexual preferences, and its not right to discriminate against anyone based on the above mentioned.

That being said, what is my defense as a white, heterosexual, middle aged male?

Thank you liberals to slowly put me on the endangered list!

I can think of a ton of things why you still might be discriminated against. Acne, wearing glasses, having a beard/no beard, being stupid, having a stupid face, hipster, hippy, metro sexual, stinking, white socks, blonde, red hair, wearing shorts...
Don't worry about it. Someone hates you for some superficial nonsense somewhere.

I hear ya!

Being a single, male, hetrosexual, white, middle aged looking expat with long hair and a very individual attitude to all things has led me to be persecuted on occasion, but I wouldn't change a thing. It has given me the ability to make great friends and be a rock for others when they dispair.

FEAR is always a key factor for those who attack us.

Look for the hypocracy, use perspective and wear a smile when others TRY to steal your energy because they are pathetic and weak, it's your best line of defense.

Chin up.

Just don't stoop to their level.
If you feel you're being discriminated against, don't whine and cry, take it like the (straight, white, middle-aged) man you are.

Live above the ignorance and have yourself a nice day. Let the weak minded of the world chase the boogyman.

Can you bring any of these reasons up when you are in the wrong to your defense?

You didn't catch my point.

Don't get my post wrong, I am not hurt and nobody gives me # at the moment, thats why I started with 'this is not a full blown rant'

I am purely curious if anyone else see it?

Sure. "I didn't get the job because the boss didn't like my face." Or I am too fad, or whatever. It happens all the time.
Just because you think you're the crown jewel of creation doesn't mean everyone agrees.
We decide in less than a second if we find someone likeable, everytime the person across from you doesn't give you a sincere smile you've been deemed not likeable, ie up for discrimination if you are subject of a decision this person has to make.
Might be your nose, your teeth, your clothes...

Dude just use the racist card like everybody else. I used it at the state fair last year (2016) when some entitled young black teenagers tried to bully their way into the middle of a line for a ride. I was saying something to my son when I turned around I realized there were half a dozen youths who I knew for certain were not there moments ago. I got loud and told them "I don't know who yall think you are, but you going to the back of this line, or at the very least damn sure not going to be in front of me"

So this one girl who was like 15 or 16 tries to flip and be like "oh, you going to fight over your spot in line!? Over your spot!" So I was like "if you don't think its a big deal, takae your racist entitled communist ass to a different spot" Then she got quiet like and was like "excuse me, how m I being racist" I just stayed on it "look you can either move your racist self to the back, or you can discuss it with that deputy right there after I send my son to go get him, how you want to do this?" of course they all moved back, but still cut in front of some passive aggressive pansies too scared to stand up for principal to some loud teenagers that roam in groups.

This is the kind of behavior that necessitates the need to flood our State fair with deputies every year because people would always complain about violent, disrespectful and confrontations youths and teenagers on fair day.

Here are some prime examples of the type of behavior that mandated the flood of law enforcement to keep order.


Damn teenagers, always starting trouble can't let families enjoy the fair.

Many black people I've talked to say they believe they have to behave differently or face severe consequences with police.

This call can't all be fake news:

www.latimes.com...

Maybe there is some truth to it. This video was given to me by a black friend of mine during a discussion on is racism and discrimination real. He said look at this video. This seems pretty real to me:



I don't think you can claim people are not discriminated against. Although there is a lot lip service not everyone believes in the teachings of Jesus.

I take you disagree?

Care to clear how is it stupidity? Isn't the 21st century liberals are the ones pushing human rights so far it is over tilting? Mate nothing wrong with human rights with Balance.

Its kind of flimsy, because there are instances of white people met with the exact same response, and black people who had no guns drawn on them.
I remember one case where a guy was kicked out of a diner for his rifle, and then the police were outside waiting with guns drawn, they took his gun. Emptied the magazine, and I think took apart the bolt carrier group as well. I wish I could find it. He was not even allowed to go back to the parking lot to get his car. They forced him to go and just stayed there until he walked off.

You make a very good point. But I think the point I was making is black people have the perception this is the case. And I think white people may not. Although, state troopers in New Jersey are pretty aggressive in getting people to respect their AUTHORITAY.

Black people are certainly treated less fairly in court. I have witnessed it the unfair sentencing myself. I have also had friends treated worse during traffic stop. One of my Cuban friends when I was a teenager was in a car with us, and he happens to be dark skinned. They pulled us over after leaving a housing project where people frequently went for stuff of varying degrees. He was the only dark skinned person in the vehicle, but was also the only honest sincere one who stayed out of trouble. How could they know that though?? They asked the driver, and him only to get out. They simply questioned our drier while my buddy gets fully worked over.

He was of course, allowed to leave with the rest of us without too much incident. Not until after they forced us all out when he came out clean of course because they swear we had something. Thirty minutes later they let us all go with no charges of any kind. As soon as we got back to our spot, we rolled up our stuff which was properly hidden and enjoyed our bounty with some drinks


Except our Cuban friend, who ad not yet begun his habit of getting baked. See, hee was innocent the whole time,

The large majority of people don't have the ability to self-analyze (see reality tv) and therefore will take any excuse they can when things don't go their way. It's part of the human condition. It is a weakness and is only converted to strength in the rare person who can say to themselves "I will succeed despite ____________________ (put perceived handicap here)".

I am also a white, middle-class and middle-aged, heterosexual male. If someone dislikes me because of any of those characteristics, then they do harm only to themselves. I can also be a loud-mouthed, know-it-all, pedantic, close-minded wind bag at times. If someone dislikes me for any of those characteristics, I agree with them.
