Are you talking about the busing program? I went to a school that did this, it seemed rather odd to me at the time.

I listened to a radio lab (might have been revisionist history) on the subject that was just disgusting..
To placate the racists and actually pass intergration the “meet in the middle “ compromise was to fire all the black teachers and send the children first..
Without a single adult to protect them..
They sent these 7 year olds into southern schools where “no one” wanted them, without any people in athority positions to protect them.

I thought "straight white males" were supposed to be the pinnacle of human evolution.
Tell all those SWMs to "suck it up buttercup", pull themselves up by their own bootstraps & to quit their whining.

If we go by the modern interpretation of "discrimination" anything that is said that you or anyone doesn't like it's racism. If someone even flinches in a direction you don't like it's discrimination but you are also wrong on your claim that whites cannot be discriminated against and you just putting that theory forward in itself should be offensive, luckily this type of junk falls on deaf ears when it comes to my own life. I honestly roll my eyes and turn away when people use that same tired excuse when cussing out or belittling or attempting to make white men the bad guys in any situation.
Historical facts are always ignored (first black slaves were sold by black people to white people and black people. White people have been slaves across the world just as Black people, etc. etc.) When you claim that non white people can't be racist against white people you should be removed from the debate. I'm not saying it is has been as bad for white people as it has for blacks because it hasn't but in the recent months it has become a terrible time for white people, white people (that's me...I know shocker lol) have to be on edge with everything we say and do because it might offend a non-white - I've read reports of people calling racism over clothing, over the length of lines. It's ridiculous.
I could go on but more than likely this comment will probably be removed.

Alpha-male broflakes are a weird bunch, OP. Just ignore them, and occasionally make fun of them.
It's not really something to worry about. White people being discriminated against for being white is the funniest thing I've ever heard.
Now, white people being discriminated and treated poorly (by other white people) for being poor.... yeah, now we're onto something.
