Those same people polled are out of their minds.
I mean, really?
When have white people ever been doused with firehoses, dragged behind trucks, hung or forced to use "white-only" facilities?
The idea that whites are more discriminated against than blacks has to be a mental condition and nothing more.
Really cause that still happens to this day huh. Lol sword how about you take a good look around and take off your liberal agenda glasses. what happened a while back when a group of black teens went to a fair and got caught beating up white kid and using racial slurs awwwwwwwww nothing yeah that's right now turn that around and see what would happen. Using events from over 50 years ago to justify a point your trying to make makes you look like a moron and a agenda pusher its 2012 black people are not forced to go to black only bathrooms lol.
i think the cops doused the occupy wall street protesters so yeah i guess you can say we have been doused with fire-hoses. sorry but you are not your ancestors just because they went through some crap doesn't mean you did. Plus what your looking for sounds more like payback the equality and that's why most white people feel the way they do because MLK's dream has come true and to boot there's a black man in the white house you got what you wanted and guess what it still isn't enough. Equality is being on fair ground not an eye for an eye or a history lesson. But like most feminist you don't understand what equality truly is

Promotions without merit? So, all minorities hired or promoted are simply given oppurtunities because they are minorities and affrimative action helps them? It has nothing at all to do with their skill level, education or...other qualifications?
As I've posted before..it usually doesn't.They almost always fail.Of course it depends on the job and all that.If you know anything about affirmative action then you know what you just said is true.They get promotions based on thier skin color,even if they're not qualified for it..Atleast that's how it works here in America.Don't know where you're from.edit on 9-3-2012 by nightstalker78 because: (no reason given)

I too live in Australia and I can tell you that YOU are full of the proverbial.
Oh you may know a few Aborigines who have dug themselves out of the mire, BUT that no more denies the fact that they ARE given a load more opportunity to do well than non-indigenous are.
"Oh I know an aborigine, you're a liar!"
I dare you to post the discrepancy between Aboriginal welfare and non-Aboriginal welfare.. Or shall I do it for you?
Oh you have a gall.
This power, to both make the accusation and demolish the framework by which the accused can conduct a defense, is a power that blacks arguably have over whites in the context of academic discourse.
