I can tell you with 100% certainty there is no such thing as discrimination based on color or how you look.
That's funny, because where I work they refused to hire a white guy as the manager, a guy everyone liked with years of experience, and instead tried to hire a black woman. She wanted too much money so they couldn't. They still passed on the white guy simply because he was white and they would only hire a black manager. Then a CUL (mini manager) position went up, white lady who was there forever applied, and a black woman who had been there 1 year. Guess who got it.
Notable, however, is that while a majority of whites in the poll say discrimination against them exists, a much smaller percentage say that they have actually experienced it. Also important to note is that 84 percent of whites believe discrimination exists against racial and ethnic minorities in America today.
Income also seemed to affect individual responses to the question of discrimination.
Lower- and moderate-income white Americans were more likely to say that whites are discriminated against — and to say they have felt it, either when applying for a job, raise or promotion or in the college-admissions process.

I was ignored 2x today at Jiffy Lube. First I pulled up, waited, nobody came to help. I then went inside and waited, nobody came to help. I saw someone pull up outside and then i saw someone run to help him. I left.
Something similar happened at Walmart a while back. It was a black cashier ignoring white people, but when a black guy came up she was there in a sec.
It happens more than people think.
It happens more to minorities. Amazing people think it doesn't. And it must have been tragic to have a person ignoring you in Walmart. And you watched them ignore several white people and then help a black person? How dedicated of you to stand around waiting for that, to prove that white discrimination actually exists. Simply hilarious.
