Yup, you're probably right. However, I wonder if you can address the information in my post rather than playing the race card. Probably not.

Marion Barry being re-elected after the crack was way too strange to be fiction!

Shakes head, then giggles.

"Are Whites More Discriminated Against Than Blacks?"

Sure they are.. Well at least in the USA.

There is a group of white people, in fact, hundreds of thousands of them that are discriminated against and presumed to be a "certain type".....

They get unwanted junk mail..... unscolicited phone calls in a language they cant understand.....

And its only due to the fact that they have last names that are not English or German etc.etc..


This group of WHITE folks are called "hispanic".



Question to my European brrothers... Does they segragate the Spanish in your countries?

Why don't we level the playing field. You can't do anything about the feelings of some people towards certain groups, whether it be about race, sex, or whatever. But what you can do, is have the government do what it was supposed to do, and level the playing field, so everyone has the same economic opportunity. No policy should be based on race, period. If someone can show me how making a policy based on race makes sense, please show me.

There is one problem: White isn't a race. Caucasians is a racial group, within it are ethnic groups that are fairly different in appearance and bone structure.

African Americans should feel greatful. Because when everything is said and done, on both a racial and a cultural level, they still exist.

Look at what happened to German Americans(the only demographic of American's who overwhelmingly supported ending slavery). For all intensive purposes we are extinct. Did a single African American stand in protest of the cultural and ethnic genocide committed against us(German Americans in the early to mid 1900's who married other Germans were regarded as "suspect" and often victims of lynchings, intimidation and home burnings, and cultural pressure forced German Americans to marry Anglo Americans, effectively an act of Genocide as defined by UN accords and international law)?

I say German Americans are the most discriminated against ethnic/racial group in America. Because not only where we always discriminated against, but under this PC "get whitey" environment we face the same persecution. Instead of from Anglo's it is now from the "oppressed" peoples our ancestors fought to free.

that is a joke because as i've posted before, one question i was asked on my college application was are you hispanic? i dought that was to make sure and not accept hispanics. as a matter of fact i was mad because what difference should it make, i felt like they were implying that they have it harder than me. well they dont, i grew up a poor and #ty as one could and had to learn on my own just like a hispanic might. and just for the record, i've had to stick up for whites being bullied at work by hispanic immagrants that i know as a fact werent even legal because of the timeclock system we had, then again, mexicans generally dont like paurto ricans or blacks very openly, but we wont see a thread about that with all this anomosity

Good point.

How can there be an end to racial discrimination if the government feels the need to discriminate against whites?

Analysts say that non-white minority groups will make up the majority of America by the middle of the twenty-first century, a prediction that comes as demographers mull over preliminary data discovered in the 2010 US census.


Figures from the census already made available are leading analysts to say that non-Hispanic white children are now making up the minority of babies born in America for the first time. The 1990 census showed that 60 percent of children under three were white, but now that demographic is just under half.

rt.com...


So if white births are now a minority, can we expect the government to stop discriminating against whites?

Not only that, can we expect Affirmative Action aimed to help the white non-hispanic minority when that happpens?

Now watch as AA racists try to justify their hypocritical double standard opposition to such affirmative action, just because the minority is now white.



Fully colorblind equality before law is the only acceptable way in 21st century. Nothing less.

I suppose the logic is that minorities are economically disadvantaged.

The problem is, so are many white people.

Afirmative action is unfair because it discriminates on the basis of race against poorer white people.

Yes I have to agree with you there.. The US, Europe and Australia are far poorer than our rich African cousins...

Yes they are. Affirmative Action alone is institutionalized racism against white people.

Then you have the everyday nonsense that you hear on tv everyday.

I see your point and agree with you. However, it should be noted that as a cultural force, African Americans have roughly 500 years of evolution (evolution regarding their culture) as opposed to German-Americans which, for better or worse, never had such a process (and seemingly - if what you say is true - the process has ended with the lack of cultural niche).

As a person of Italian heritage, I would say the same thing. Italian Americans are not a cohesive group anymore either. In many respects, there are still Little Italies in some of the east coast cities like New York and Philadelphia. However, you don't see a unique ethnic force. Most of us are not full-blooded Italians (whatever that really means, considering Italy's history).

African Americans are a product of a historical context that created their cohesiveness. For whatever reason, other nations in the Americas that had slavery do not have this same product.

For example, in Brazil, where slavery lasted another two decades after it ended in the US, there is much less in-group rigidity amongst the descendants of slaves. Many people who we would consider "Black" by skin tone alone, would not consider themselves Black in Brazil, as there are more categories (though not particularly scientifically-grounded ones). Also, there is no "one" category with cultural cohesiveness that we could define as parallel to "Black" in the US.

I noted that regional accents of Portuguese are varied in Brazil. There are features that are clearly of West African origin (such as double negation, which can also be heard in the Ewe language, for example). However, these potentially "African" speech features are common not only to people of African heritage, but also people in Brazil who only have pure European ancestry. It'd be a lot like so-called White Americans saying things like "I axed her" or "She sad" or even "It a crazy guy who stay next door"

So, any discrimination that, at face value, affects the status of any supposed racial group (such as "White") would be mistaken in that there is no true group to be stereotyped.
