Caucasians are the majority because there are more Caucasians in the country
than there are blacks or any ethnicity, however if you lumped together blacks and
Hispanics as one, whites would become the minority.
In some places whites are the minority, but in the country as a whole they are the majority
simply because they outnumber all other ethnicities by themselves.
Anyhew, back to the initial topic. Could someone please explain that issue to me. (and yea, I'm willing to listen, perhaps you could clarify it for
me as I truly don't get the logic behind it).
Personally I've always considered Affirmative Action as something that was suppose
to prevent racism, but when a Hispanic is hired before white or black or Asian because
of their ethnicity, and have the worst qualifications, I think that's what Affirmative
Action was meant to correct.
Is it at least "possible" that 48% of the nations prison population is black because black people are committing 48% of the crimes? At all? Maybe?
Possibly? Some how?
I think that there are three real major problems here.
1. We make things crimes that should'nt be crimes.
2. We have unfair sentencing.
3. We've failed an entire group of people and several generations by letting inner
cities and ghettos get the way they are.
If we fixed those three things, I doubt that blacks would than make that much of
the prison system.
Why isn't there a White Entertainment Television?
There is, it's called CMT.
Ok, on a more serious note, I figure just because no one has ever felt like creating one,
I mean I don't watch BET very much, but I have seen white rappers on it before.
What about a Miss White America Pageant?
I was'nt aware there was a Miss Black America Pageant, that's sort of sad.
White History Month?
Well, basically history in general is white history, the only reason we have a Black History
Month is because historical black people and events have been left out of History books
and such for so long, while all the focus has/had been primarily on the achievements
and lives of White people.
Personally I think we should just create a single history including the historical
events and people of all peoples in America, not just one or two groups.
I can see Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpeton now if there were a Miss White America Pageant tomorrow.
I don't much like Al Sharpton.
Not because of his ethnicity obviously, but he's a pompous idiot who wants to censor
things and tries to make some Conservative ideologies into liberal ones.
Could someone explain to me why a race of people that call for racial diversity has so many organizations, programs and other "groups" that are race
specific? Pot? Kettle? Anyone?
Because they're the largest minority,and have been used and taken advantage
of by the most people.
Why is it not a hate crime for a black/hispanic/whatever guy to kill a white person? Or rape a white person????? Why?
It should only be a hate crime if anyone attacks/kills someone else because of
their ethnicity, gender, religion, orientation etc.
