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

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
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.
