lol Every race has been sold into slavery at some point.



Indeed. The word "slave" actually comes from Slavic people (white race), who were often enslaved in the early medieval times. Now should I demand preferential treatment as a Slav today, because of this?
Lets leave the past and move on, its 21.st century.

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

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.


It was only a matter of time before someone brought this up.What the hell does 9/11 have to do with this thread?You have no idea what your talking about.You're assuming.From your post I'm willing to bet you're not American.And if you are you're a liar.I know of no one that calls anyone who tans a muslim,spic or terrorist.

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 do realize that. Still, it changes nothing about the fact that it directly legitimatises racism, against any race. Until all legislation is strictly colorblind and based only on merit, then we have no moral right to criticise any racists.

The solution to racism is colorblind laws and regulation + strictly enforced punishments for any racial discrimination + time. Not affirmative action, which makes the problem worse, and only gives more credibility to the racists.

Not at all, we should embrace being told off for things hundreds of years ago, and then treated as second class citizens because we deserve it. I mean, if we complain, we're just whingers.

Yep.

No racism at all..

short and sweet, but well, a diatribe elicits the same, and I am too tired to care anymore..

Your ignorance makes my brain bleed. Well lets see, aside from slavery, I have. Ever have someone follow you down the street yelling racial slurs threatening your life?

P.S
There is no such thing as "white". The only whites are a bunch of inbred Anglo Scot Irish Americans(the ones responsible for slavery, Jim Crow and Segregation; as well as acts of hatred and oppression against every other non WASP Caucasian ethnicity).

And I know my history; ignorant, callous bigots like you, are what got us into this mess in the first place.
you you don't think your being racist when you call people of Irish or Scottish ancestry inbred. Your hypocrisy knows no bounds does it.

Oooh! Poor little white guys! So how long do they reckon that's been going on? Coupla years maybe?
What ever their 'perceptions' are making them feel - maybe they should 'put up' with the 'descriminations' for, oh, let's say a coupla hundred years then maybe they can have a whinge ! Go sit on the other side of the bus whitey, ooh what are you doing on this side of town whitey? Come on down here whitey, we just want to do some tests with some drugs and stuff, won't hurt you or your future offspring, just sit down like a good white boy. No whiteys in our schools please - Someone stole my jewels, must be the white maid/butler -

Guess who's coming to dinner!!

Good way to try to rationalise their own racism -

Makes me ashamed to be 'white'

Come on the Race of Tan!

Is your goal actually fixing racist discrimination, or mindless revenge? From what you wrote it seems to be the latter.

I have one question for all defendants of affirmative action: If its about black people being more poor than white people due to historic reasons, why AA based on race? Why not simply on poverty? Why should a rich black be preffered over poor white?

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.




You have it wrong, Jews control the power. Though they may look white.

You make yourself ashamed.

Race of tan? You really think that? You do know that pride is not one way. Right?

As long as we disappear, all is well... ok

My forefathers did no harm. I am not going to take blame. You can.

race of tan.... what an idiot.

Why cannot we just be who we are? NOW?

You're ridiculous. People that fail in life tend to blame other people. The fact that you only equate this coping mechanism to race is very telling.

Christians blame sinners, the 99% blame the 1%

business owner blames the employees for a failed business , criminals blame society or their victims

and in this thread white people blame black people for not getting that office job

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.


God forbid you calm down and discuss controversial subjects without insulting everyone on ATS. God forbid. I don't see any racism here, I really don't. In fact, you're being quite racist complaining about "whites".

I've had hispanic gang bangers pull guns on me and have gotten into altercations with skin heads. I'm black. And no, whites aren't discriminated against more than blacks or hispanics.

my goodness...
so many of you here have no idea what you're talking about.

we cannot examine these issues without proper context - including the history of this country - and some objective, logical analysis of root causes. i can tell many of you wailing "reverse racism" are uneducated and ignorant about why such a concept doesn't make sense.

i recommend:
- the documentary film "the end of suburbia" to see how post civil-war racism led to the roots of poverty today, and why this is key to understanding how race, income (and income disparity), and the criminal justice system has developed into a machine that ensures that these things continue to be oppressive toward minorities. ever wonder why housing projects are still havens for crime, drugs, and violence? it's not because minorities are "lazy" and "like living off of welfare."
- william ryan's "blaming the victim" and "equality." these books are along the vein of "social philosophy," and ryan takes on a sort-of objective, anthropological approach in truly dissecting and understanding these issues. every social psychology course i've taken at university has featured the same chapter of "blaming the victim" as required course material, and for good reason. ryan is vastly under-appreciated, his views are incredibly wise, logical, and ridiculously relevant, some 2-3 decades after initial publication.

seriously, unless you engage in some autodidactic, independent research, drawing from a multitude of sources and information, your views are likely to not only be shallow and biased, but illogical. for such complex issues, relying on illusory perceptions and habituated confirmation bias to carry you through an intellectual debate is just laughable to me. it's easy to reinforce existing beliefs, ever more difficult to question and challenge those beliefs.

no one ever said seeking the truth was easy. some of us want to learn, others want to feed their ego - it's sad to see how many here happen to fall into the latter category.

Glad I wasn't the only one who noticed the bitching about their own failures, and trying to blame it on black people.

If we are down to 4 equally qualified people one being a minority and one being a woman we examine the demographics of our business and our needs. Men are stronger but women are detailed and white men are a dime a dozzen. Sadly, black people do not test well, as a percentage of white people do not either, we can't accomodate anyone so Black is gold. If we ever attract hispanic they would be like jesus.
