Comments I've heard in this thread:
Blacks shouldn't marry whites.
We should advance the white race and not be called a racist for it.
People being peeved that there's a black exclusive club but then defending the boy scouts club and telling girls to basically "go over there" to
the girl scouts.
It's not right for their to be gay pride parades and not straight pride parades. But I believe anyone here would defend the right of the KKK to hold
a white supremacy parade while getting angry at seeing a black pride parade.
It's comments like these that made these groups of people feel like they had to have "special clubs" and associations for themselves. If there
wasn't an NAACP or black pride marches in the 60's, we'd still be drinking from segregated fountains and sitting in all white restaurants.
It's attitudes like these that meant, if I were born any time before the early 1900's I wouldn't be allowed to vote because people thought that a
female should have no say in these matters. If there wasn't a sufferage movement in the 20's, I still wouldn't be able to vote. How many of you
roll your eyes at the very idea of a sufferage movement. If there weren't black college funds, there would be a disproportionate amount of white in
colleges, there already are.
I don't agree with affirmative action either, though. I don't think anyone should be chosen to fill a seat in a college or a job in the workforce
simply because they need to make it look like they like having people of different sexes and races in their workforce.
Do most of you realize that whites, as in Anglo-Saxxon, are the minorities in this world? Ever heard the joke about a white American traveling to
Africa, getting off the plane and saying, "Man! Look at all the minorities that are here!"
It's my opinion that many of you have never had to stand up for your rights and to respected as a human being on this Earth, because you get all the
rights that many, many people have had to FIGHT for simply because they were born a certain way. I bet you'd appreciate your rights a whole lot more
if someone took them away from you.
I'm just curious...how many of you that are saying these things are:
I'll tell you that I am a young straight white female with no religious background.
