White people that think they are being widely discriminated against because of their race live in a delusion. Anyone that I've ever seen go on about the "White males are the most discriminated against" garbage were always racist or went on to say racist things.


actually your wrong and will never see the truth here, I'm white/black/native american/italian... but i'm "classified" as white.

As a white male growing up in Va there are lots of racist on both sides whites and blacks.. however it is acceptable for blacks to be racist and the racism to be ignored...

Affirmitive action is racism and it also lowers the bar for blacks.. which in turns makes them lazier and stupider.

Equal rights does not mean easier for one race because they are that race.

Equal is Equal and if you support affirmitive action and all the other perks you get for being black your racist.

I'm not talking about anecdotal racist experiences. I'm talking about institutionalized racism, which 99.9% of the time always favors whites in the USA.

How does AA make black people dumb or lazy?
They apply to a job and they MIGHT get it. Either way they had to apply in order to be hired.

Now you're just trolling

In most states in the USA you can only stay on welfare for a couple years, then you get cut off. The majority of the poor has a job anyway.

No, I am not trolling. People of my tribe, get a check a month their whole life if they choose to jump through the hoops, be a good doggie and live on the rez. This is canada BTW, not all natives are from the US ya know


At least the younger kids seem to be smart, putting their money away for college to get the hell out of there. Getting good grades in school. My generation is all messed up though.

People who talk about AA rarely have any experience with it. Quotas are not mandated by the government, most private organizations mandate them for their own companies. As for hiring practices, no private company is required to practice AA. The only regulation is Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act which outlaws discrimination based on race, national origin, religious creed or sex. AA is practiced by the Federal government and generally by federal government contractors. How does it work? The two candidates are compared and if all their qualifications are equal then the minority candidate is generally chosen. How do I know all this? My mother worked in HR for a federal company (AAFES) for 10 years. I know how it works. If a private company practices AA they do it of their own free will. It's not legally required for them to do so.

So yeah, if you can't get a job try rewriting your resume.

I have heard stories about other minorities abusing welfare, but no first hand knowledge of that myself. My grandparents left the rez, and I # you not, lived in a chicken coop for five years, while working for a farmer and saving for a house. That was back when you could save up and buy a house without a mortgage.......

I used to think it was a BS story they liked to tell, until I seen a few pictures. They busted their ass to get out of that place, no way I disgrace them by going back.

Oops drifting off topic. Back to bashing the white man

Ok I'm sorry I just wanted to say one more thing.

Do you think it is possible that by lowering the bar for blacks, by keeping expectations down because of "what they have gone thru as a race" by making access to welfare and all the other government programs and here is the most important one.... BY TELLING THEM OVER AND OVER HOW MUCH EVERYONE IN THIS COUNTRY OWES THEM... Just maybe because of these things I've stated has made them just not work as hard for what they want.

This conversation is pointless because you are way too programed... I like you, I think you write well and you engage my thoughts... however you will never admit that those programs actually hurt the black race.. It will always be because the White man hold you back.

Successul people get there from hard work and good decisions. A bit of luck too.

Do you realize how absurd that sounds? A person can only be on welfare for a couple of years?

Yeah, until they have their next child and then a couple more, then a couple more, then a couple more until the next generation, which is generally raised by grandma on disability or social security.

The only thing the USA owes black people and other minorities is to treat them as equal human beings.

No one is lowering the bar for blacks. Talking about history and current institutionalized racism is lowering the bar? Black people have the only history that whites get offended by if mentioned or talked about.


by making access to welfare and all the other government programs and here is the most important one


The requirement to be on welfare is income level, not race. Black poverty is directly linked to events of the past, like redlining or the CIA smuggling crack coc aine into the ghettos. I mean a million things I could name. Yeah, black people can escape it, but they have less of the probability to due to institutionalized discrimination.


Redlining is the practice of denying, or increasing the cost of services such as banking, insurance, access to jobs,[2] access to health care,[3] or even supermarkets[4] to residents in particular, often racially determined

Pulitzer Prize-winning series of articles by investigative reporter Bill Dedman showed that banks would often lend to lower-income whites but not to middle- or upper-income blacks.[7] T

A survey of two districts of similar incomes, one being largely white and the other largely black, found that branches in the black community offered largely subprime loans and almost no prime loans. Studies found out that high-income blacks were almost twice as likely to end up with subprime home-purchase mortgages as low-income whites. Loan officers were also apparently aware that what they were doing was exploitative, as they referred to blacks as “mud people” and to subprime lending as “ghetto loans

In December 2007, a class action lawsuit was brought against student loan lending giant Sallie Mae in the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut, alleging that Sallie Mae discriminated against African American and Hispanic private student loan applicants

however you will never admit that those programs actually hurt the black race


I don't think they hurt any race. Do you think welfare is hurting white single moms? There are some people that abuse them, and others that REALLY need them. I'd rather have food stamps than malnutrition in the USA.


It will always be because the White man hold you back.
.

All I ever hear on ATS is that the elites, corporations, democrats, republicans, are holding our whole country back. When black people talk about white people, they mean the power structure, the elites, not individual white people.

The whole point is that in most states you cannot stay on welfare your whole life.

Ohio and a lot of other states have LIFETIME YEARLY MAXIMUM limits. You cannot stay on it and pop out kid after kid. You get cut off.


Promising to "end welfare as we know it," President Bill Clinton signed legislation in 1996 to abolish Aid To Families With Dependent Children, replacing it with Temporary Assistance for Needy Families. The new program has a strict five-year limit for cash assistance and requirements that recipients work or participate in job-training programs.

A year later, Ohio enacted its version of welfare reform, Ohio Works First, limiting cash assistance to three consecutive years with two more years available after recipients have been off the program for at least two years. Under eligibility rules, families with household incomes up to 50 percent of the federal poverty level are eligible for cash assistance. For a family of four, that's $884 a month.

That was a great post. It's not really about race at all. Most poor minorities live in the Ghetto, most poor white people live in the trailer park. Both got the same issues going, just different places. I do see most elites are whites and jews, most of the regular people of all races are trying to bale water out of the same sinking boat. Every race has their own idiot "leaders" that do nothing but keep us divided and at each other's throats, keeping the spotlight off the scumbags. It's smoke and mirrors.

This thread has been sorely needed on ATS. Too bad it's going to fall on deaf ears since 70% of the population of this site are white, middle aged men who like to pretend they aren't racist while sobbing any time a person of color gets ahead in life.




Pure baloney, in my experience the ones who cry out racism generally just use that terminology to get a heads up, or an excuse as to why they didn't get a job. I am not saying racism doesn't exist - it does and always will. Ugly fact, but racism is just a part of humanity. Yes, some people will react to you purely on your skin color, but just learn to deal with it and move on with your life (and not everyone is like that)

Thanks for chiming in with all your great points! And since "reverse racism" was described as philosophically impossible, shows that you really didn't read the OP at all. Just a part of the gang, huh? Look out folks, trolls are trolling, looking to gang up on you if you challenge the status quo!

Yawn... no good arguments so far for the racists.

I believe most of the people who go around shouting down anyone who brings up social justice issues in todays age would be the same people in the middle ages who would turn in their brother's and sister's to the king for not paying their "taxes" to his holiness. All that matters to these people is the privileged lifestyle the "King" (society) affords them for being good submissive tax slaves. They could care less about actually being a human being in a ideologically flawed society, much less could they care about another man's plight to become free from the violent and oppressive chains that shackle him to such a society.

Shame...

You might want to remember that it is us "tax slaves" that financially support the welfare system.
It is Civics 101.

Oh boy, so if you disagree with your premise in your opening your a troll and a racist?




large community of “overly sensitive racialists” (to put it nicely) on ATS. This, however, merely portrays a contextual sample of the larger group at hand, being Western society.

Whenever a “person of color” is acknowledge in a positive way through the description of skin color or ethnicity (such as, “Jackie Robinson was the first Black baseball player ” or “Bruce Lee was the most famous actor of Chinese descent”), there are White folks who begin to scream “Reverse racism!” as if that has any validity.



I don't know - sounds kind of racist to me. I am a white person and I didn't scream out Reverse Racism when Obama was labeled the first black president....I know some did, but really, you think the majority of white people did?



any local, state or federal policy that has any hint of being specified towards “people of color” (such as, Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity in Education...)


When I was getting out of university I wanted to become a forensic police officer, but basically I was told whites need not apply. I thought that was unfair, and I do to this day. Employment should be based on skill, education and various other factors - not skin color.




The right wing popularized the term “Reverse Racism” because they were really angry at having their White privileges challenged.


Sounds like your the one who is angry . Western society, right wing - you appear of have some racial tendencies yourself.
