He is 68...
It has nothing to do with his color. Sorry.
I am half white/half hispanic..I am also a business man.
I can tell you with 100% certainty there is no such thing as discrimination based on color or how you look.
It has everything to do with how you present yourself and how you carry yourself around others.

"If you apply for a job, they seem to give the blacks the first crack at it," said 68-year-old Tim Hershman of Akron, Ohio, "and, basically, you know, if you want any help from the government, if you're white, you don't get it. If you're black, you get it."
neither of those things are true.

As long as you were the right race at least....
If you were a minority though.. not so much...
I always think it’s hilarious when people pretend as if the past was better than the present..
Crime has constantly dropped, life expectancies are at all time highs, the internet exists...lol
But hey if you were white during segregation or slavery. That would have been better than being equal today.. I guess.. if your a crap human being..
But economically, things are worse across the board. So who cares if you have rights if you cant even afford to live a happy life? Economically speaking, I'd rather be Malcolm X in the 40s and 50s than me right now today. His opportunities were better. Even With the racism he faced, he still managed to get jobs. Have you ever read the autobiography of Malcolm X? Trust me, youd rather have extra racism if it meant having a better life economically.

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.

Try going to india or Egypt or China as a blonde-haired, fair-skinned person. So-called privilege doesn't get you very far.

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.

I can believe it. Known people personally who have experienced discrimination, being white, and have myself as well. For some years now, the trend has been to not only demand more for non-whites, but to also demonize people simply for being white. IN recent years, I have observed race relations become worse than I have ever seen them, in decades. I thought, growing up they'd continue to improve, but the previous administration sure changed that!

I remember race relations were a hell of a lot better 8 years ago before something happened...
