How much racist abuse have you experienced as a white person in the UK? I'm quite interested because as a white person myself, I have never received any racism ever.

Anytime these threads are made, they end up being trashed. I'm not even going to bother giving my two cents. But, I will say yes, I think they are and I agree. I see it everyday around me. And it's really sad, what this world has come to.

I hope I read this wrong. Lucky for everyone involved ATS is not a full contact sport.

Seriously, you need to clarify yourself or re-adjust your opinion maker.

If you're American then you'll know what I mean.Here it's always whitey's fault they can't get a good job.Even though they've made no effort to do so.And no,I'm not just speaking of blacks.

Point is this grow up get a job and stop blaming everyone else for YOUR shortcomings.Just because you're not white does not mean you don't have the same chances as we do.It's the same old tired excuse minorities have been using for years.

To clarify... I've been passed over for promotions for less qualified people who were not white.They usually failed and either got demoted or left the company all together.Basically they got the job because they were not white.That's not to say there weren't some that succeeded.Of course there were.But most who are promoted because they're not white usually dont.Promote people on merit.Not color.That's my problem.

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.

Got any examples of this imaginary white discrimination?

Because that's all it is to me.

Wahhh. Whites have all the power in this country. Whites control the wealth and Whites have built in privilege that other races don't have.

Its weird, when I tan I get nasty comments (muslim, terrorist, spic)

but when I dont I'm about as pale as ATS Bryan and people assume I'm white (I'm 1/2 east asian half mediterranean) guessing by the lack of off-color comments while traveliing, at checkpoints etc

It's really sad Americans seems to really have needed scapegoats to blame/be wary of.. and from my experience at least, 9/11 really gave it to them and stirred things up for the longhaul campaign, thru to present.

Except that in America, THEY DIDN'T HAVE A CHOICE! THEY WERE SLAVES!

Why do you racist pieces of trash think that you can get away with your crap here on ATS? Grow up! People from the UK and Australia are such big whiners when it comes to people of other races.

You all sound like this: "Wahhh, I don't like the Pakis and the Blacks. They # on my crumpets and tarnish my marmite!"

Black people today do not experience these things you describe, either. The same thing you just said could be directed at any black person complaining of discrimination (because they didn't get hired for a job, etc.)

And why is the question Black-and-White?

Alot of Americans are neither

We can thank affirmative action and quota legislation for this. I've seen it first hand and I'm sure many of you have also. Especially if you work for a large corporation or school district or University. Promotions without merit, overlooked disciplinary actions because someone does not want to rock the proverbial boat. Scholarship awards etc etc

What is wrong with holding everyone to the same standards?? Encourage everyone to do their best. Leave out the sob stories that are used to get a leg up and work your ass off.


I have seen it! When I was a kid in school, we got to be "bussed" to another school, to "desegregate". Nice idea, failed in reality. The result was a few white kids at mostly black schools. My sixth grade class, before we moved (dad's job), there were, literally, THREE white students in the entire grade level for the school. Got a lot of crap from other students, too, because I was white. First I had seen of that nonsense, and had actually had black friends in our neighborhood. Till the bussing, it didn't seem to be an issue.

Seen this since then, too. No scholarships for the white kids, but black or hispanic and you could get one. Known several people that could not get aid when sorely needed, because they were working and didn't earn enough, but minorities at the same income could get it. Some of those were told, flat out, they could have had it were they another race.

Seen it in the military, too. People promoted that did NOTHING to earn it, people doing things against regs, and no penalty because the were not white, when a white guy doing less got in a LOT of trouble. One case, black attacks white, white simply blocks, and guess who got punished? Seriously NOT joking on this. Racism lives in the military, and it is against whites.

Seen it other places, too. Apartment complex my oldest lived in for a time, mostly black, and will say MOST of the people weer friendly. Most, in fact, quite neighborly. A few, though, didn't like seeing me there, because I wasn't black.

We can see black-on-white crime all the time, that, if the colors were reversed, would be called "hate crimes", and in most cases, the media won't even bring race up. The attacks at the Wisconsin State fair are one example. The flash mobs are another, and there are plenty of other reports, on a smaller scale. Even the Justice Department is racist these days, told NOT to prosecute cases against NBP members and other race cases (with perps of color).

No, NOT all minorities are like this. Most, I would bet, are as offended by this as I would be against some white supremacist crap. Some are like this, though, and too many people want to pretend it isn't happening, or at best, that it is "justified", and call it "reverse racism".

Plain fact is, there is no excuse for ANY racism, no matter what color one is. To tolerate it for any reason is to fail as a society.

Affirmative action is a prime example of a racist policy. So yes, it is undeniable truth that institutionalised racism is still alive and well. And until this policy is abolished, then we have no moral right to criticise racists of any race. Because the system itself directly promotes and encourages racism, so how could we blame them?

I wouldn't call it a racist thing.

It was created to level the field for American blacks who were being denied access to certain fields based on their skin color.

We may argue that it's unnecessary now but the last time I checked, blacks are still having issues with racism in this country, even if some of the whites dismiss that and pull their childish race card bull#.

It is undeniably racist, lets call a spade a spade. We may argue that it was needed, but still, what I said holds true, as it is racist and surely gives legitimacy to other racists.

Also, there is no reason to prefer affirmative action over colorblind policies.

Why are minorities pulled over more than whites? I'm pretty sure its not because skin color has anything to do with bad driving skills.

All I see in this thread is a bunch of bull# and baseless whining.

God forbid you stop the fringe right wing white male that populates ATS from having a platform to spout off their delusions that stem from their own racism.

Look at this racist, he can't deal with his own shortcomings so he blames so called 'minorities'. Typical.

You do realize that affirmative actions exists...because of discrimination, racism, and white privilege?

Maybe if you people would stop crying and look at the root source of the problem, there would be no need for AA. But that would require honesty.

I would definately say I would agree about the cultural differences. Videos exist on the internet of Africans being burned alive for things such as witchcraft and steeling bags of potatos.

And then there is the American culture, diverse even amongst African Americans, truth be told.
