Oh, you need to qualify and jimmie your statistics with gender to make them work! LOL!

The "black" population in the US was 16.4 in 2010.

But just for fun, how many middle class Americans are represented in Trump's cabinet? I mean, as long as we're looking at population representation among cabinet members.

I believe he was talking about black men. Can you cite a source for that 16.4% number? I've always seen it ~13%.

I'm white and 57 years old, and I've never been discriminated against. Not at college (I had no trouble getting in, and even got a scholarship), not at any of my jobs (I've always been promoted to various positions), not in any public accommodation (I've never been kicked out of an establishment for being white or frisked for shoplifted items), not in any public area (never been stopped by a cop for being in the "wrong neighborhood").

This racial divide crap is so strange to me. I'm white, grew up in southern california. ALL my friends were black or hispanic. never experienced any discrimination. Their families treated me like one of their own. Hell i went to a mexican family reunion. Imagine a little white blond haired boy runnin around an entire hispanic family. Never once did they bat an eye. Other than to call me gringo, which was true.

And even today i don't see it. My son is four, he's "married" to the little black girl across the street. This narrative is being pushed on us by the msm. And it makes me sick.

Everyone should have to do the 23 and me thing. Maybe it will give these idiots some perspective . . .

I feel like these numbers will continue to rise as long as it is in vogue to call everything racist, and complain about whiteness. etc.

The more identity politics are pushed for some groups, the more the other groups will start to group themselves into groups based on gender or color on the other side.


Really? Who really did the most to foster the black/white identity politicking? The Republicans, starting with Nixon and the "Southern Strategy." By Reagan it was the mythical "welfare queen." Hell within 5 years of the end of segregation, Republicans were already accusing white non-conservatives of suffering from "white guilt."

Is any of what I just said untrue? Was there no Southern Strategy (the the GOP apologized for in like 2005)? Did Reagan not give the world the myth of the "welfare queen?" In what year did "white guilt" become a pejorative tossed at white people who weren't conservatives?

Now you're trying to blame non-conservatives for the results of generations of conservative programming. Do you ever wonder why it's always conservative whites who feel discriminated against and rarely liberal whites?

Are liberal whites just blind to how they're discriminated against? Why don't I agree?

Could it be because it's not "whites" but conservatives who are often identified with bigotry? And it's not just racism, it's bigotry against people based on their sexual preferences, religion (or lack of it), etc. And furthermore, could it be that at every crossroads in social progress in American history, the conservative position (not to be confused with political party) was always whatever favored keeping the most power among white male Christians and denying fundamental rights to others? That even as recently a a few years ago, conservatives fought like crazy — hysterical at the prospect of same sex marriage?

I know you don't share these hangups personally but you can't deny that they exist in abundance among conservatives and it's nothing new or hard to understand. Conservatism is literally about preserving the status quo or returning to some earlier period in time. Women not voting was the status quo, conservative were triggered by it changing. Segregation was the status quo. Conservatives were triggered by desegregation. Gay people being in the closet and certainly not being allowed to marry (baby Jesus forbid!) was the status quo. Conservatives have been triggered like crazy and accusing non-conservatives of the "gay agenda."

Do you think it's unfair to associate American conservatism with bigotry? Honest question.

Ok let me see what I have learned in my college classes on why whiteness is evil.

"You don't know what its like to be him! you need to unpack your invisible knapsack!

How dare you use your privilege to tell this person how to feel!!!!"

I think thats how it goes.

This poll is BS, it's just there to justify the media race baiting and the people who are buying into it in my opinion. The only way the "majority" of the majority race in America feels like they're being discriminated against is if they are watching and buying into what the media is peddling.

Looks like people are buying into the racial divide that's being fueled by the media.

White people discriminated against? Lol. Name 5 black CEO's of Fortune 500 companies. Wait, you can't because there are only 4 of them.


Geee ... Can I play?

Quick name five states that start with the letter "A." Wait, you can't because there are only four of them.

Way to pick a number and then set a goal one more than that and claim racism is to blame.

The "majority" of white Americans are watching too much TV and news.


I think that remark displays your racial hatred and bigotry against white Americans. I feel like you've just discriminated against me and hated on me.

First dont believe I said in my post that people on the right are to be excluded.

We should learn by id politics of the past where whites used id politics that it cause a rise of id politics by minorities.

The same is true today. Both sides feed off each other.

The more Al shaprtons there are, the more it drives people to Richards spencers.

And your bigotry argument is nonsense.

I have seen plenty of bigotry from people on the left.

As I have said before, bigotry agisnt blacks is not accepted anywhere in an establishment manner.

yet we can have it legal to higher people based on skin color, or give people an advantage on test scores because of skin color, or even claim that white skin color is evil.

Show me one college course that discusses the problems of "blackness"

Not saying that I feel discriminated against.

But I sure wouldn't mind getting some of that white privilege everyone keeps talking about.

Sounds like the same logic these "majority" pollers used to come to the conclusion they're being discriminated against.

I wonder what their demographic is? I'd be willing to bet they're middle class with good jobs for the most part.

I'm white btw, I just find this poll to be utter BS spurred on by the utter BS spewed by the media.

I have definitely felt discriminated against. When my company bids a federal project and the other bidder get an edge because of race, sex, or previous military service, sure it's discriminatory. God forbade I should bid against a company' with ownership that is a black, female, vet. I would have no chance regardless of price or previous experience.
Just my experience with the Feds. During the last administration My small business wasn't black enough to win a contract, and yes there is a box to check for race, sex, and former vet on the bid form.

When did I say anything about racism being to blame for the majority non-black CEO's? I simply used it as one example to point out the fact that white people are not "majorly" discriminated against in today's society.

Why you always gotta see the race card being pulled where it's not being pulled? You might want to think about that.

What a joke white people whining about discrimination is.
Other races dream of getting that kind of 'discrimination'.

Feelings don't matter... right? The facts do. The facts are overwhelming white privilege, not overwhelming white discrimination.

Buck up white folk. There have been a lot of people that aren't white men that have been suppressed from the onset of this country. Now that some of those folks can finally exercise their freedom of speech (that certainly wasn't upheld in the past) white male fear is setting in. Big surprise.

I think its more than just being in vogue, though I admit that is probably part of it. I think the backlash against the perception of racism is racism itself. You cant look at groups like antifa and the blm with honest eyes and say they are not racist.

I think we are seeing the same thing over and over again. Its not designing an end to racism, it is looking for payback. Once upon a time the Miss America pageant did not allow black contestants. They changed that in 1970. The Miss Black America pageant was started in 1968, and is still going today. If equality of opportunity was the goal the Miss Black America pageant could have ended in 1970, but it didn't.

The real test will be this year. The Miss America pageant did not allow black contestants for 48 years, from 1921 to 1969. The Miss Black America pageant has not allowed white contestants for 48 years as of 2016. I think we have reached parity. Now it is up to the people who run the pageants to show their (no pun intended) true colors.

Try teaching as a white in an inner city school and tell me you never get discriminated against by either your students or your colleagues.

More than half of whites — 55 percent — surveyed say that, generally speaking, they believe there is discrimination against white people in America today


Well that sorta thing doesn't just happen overnight therefore primarily I blame Obama and his husband and their closet 'whitey must pay' conduct. I also blame BLM - the anti-white / anti-police racist hate group. But most of all I blame CNN and the retards for giving them all lots of air-time to spew their crap in all directions in the hopes some of it will stick.



His "husband?!" Really??

Ugh. Grow up.
