As a white male construction worker i think i get what he is saying, it's easy for people who have been used to living a certain way to think the
world has ended when all of a sudden they're forced to live a lowlier lifestyle - i would be gutted if i couldn't afford my internet and all my
european holidays. I would consider myself hard up compared to most middleclass people that i see in the news papers and news stations, however
compared to a vast chunk of the population i'm living in a world of milk and honey.
The economic collapse is going to show people what it's like when things go wrong, when its hard to make ends meet and when it's almost imposable to
survive.- it would be a great sadness and horrible injustice if all the 'white builders' were to kick up such a fuss that they get all the aid while
the people who could only just survive in the good times are once again ignored in the bad times.
Yes by mentioning the fact they're 'white' he was being a little racist, so what? how old do you think he is? look at him. Imagine his childhood,
his teen years -do you think he can remember when MLK was shot? think he can remember how he felt at he race riots? Of course he has a race hang up,
a persecution complex, etc -that doesn't all go away just because of one magic negro! This racial distrust needs to melt away, that won't happen if
all everyone does is obsess over who's a mild racist, etc, etc.
