In California students are required to take Spanish so they can understand the Spanish speaking people.
Why can't they be required to learn English?

Im NOT white, I married a white guy though and "white privilege" is crap and yet another piece of BS to divide and conquer. Im also not black. Ive only experienced racism from blacks though. In fact, the whites and blacks think they are the ONLY "races" that exist and the blacks act like they are the ONLY ones ever oppressed, so I might as well be invisible and my real life experiences for decades in many social and work arenas obviously dont count.
This is 2012.. Im a double minority.. a female and one of the smallest minorities in the US. Somehow I managed to acquire a college education without skin color freebies and succeed in the work place on my own merit.. go figure.

To the guy saying he couldn't get General Relief and Food Stamp benefits I believe him. Lets be honest we are conditioned to think whites have no woes and also lets be honest the latino community isn't known to love whites or Blacks either. To anyone who says otherwise try being black or white doing any business in Huntington Park,CA.
Most people on welfare are white,so ?? most Americans are white too, what's your point here?

The post he was referring to was a person who claimed they were denied public assistance because they were white. That does not make any sense since the majority of people on welfare are white.
That does not make any sense since the majority of people on welfare are white.does that mean you think if you're white, you're automatically accepted or what exactly?

A recent study of females convicted of crimes showed a disheartening correlation that would confirm accusations of racial injustice in the legal system: The lighter a convict’s skin, the shorter their prison sentence tends to be, and the less time they serve.
Light-skinned women were sentenced to an average of 12 percent less time than their darker-skinned peers, and served an average of 11 percent less time in jail, the study found. The researchers used similar crimes to compare sentences, so that they could generate the most accurate, relevant results.
Raw Story (s.tt...
In a University of Georgia study, light-skinned black men had the edge in hiring over dark-skinned black men, regardless of credentials.
"We found that a light-skinned black male can have only a bachelor's degree and typical work experience and still be preferred over a dark-skinned black male with an MBA and past managerial positions," says Matthew S. Harrison, a University of Georgia doctoral student in applied industrial organizational psychology, who presented his research in August to the Academy of Management in Atlanta.
Blacks tend to get substantially longer prison terms [unlike the one month asserted by Langan above] than whites convicted of the same crimes, even when the Black person is a first time offender and the White person a second- or third-time offender.�44 Clinton Cox adds that, for murder Blacks serve 91.7 months versus 79.8 months for whites; for rape, 55 months for Blacks versus 43.9 for whites; for kidnapping, 41 months for Blacks to 37 for whites; and for robbery, 37.4 for Blacks to 33.3 for whites.
"If the credentials were different, in the case of women, the more qualified or experienced darker-skinned woman got it, but if the qualifications were identical, the lighter-skinned woman was preferred," Mr. Harrison said.
A long line of studies have found that U.S. blacks get inferior care for cancer and a variety of other ailments compared to whites but experts concerned about the disparities have struggled to understand why.
Doctors in all racial and ethnic groups showed an implicit preference for whites versus blacks except for black doctors, who did not favor either group.
Studies have shown blacks in the United States are more likely than whites to die from diabetes, strokes, heart attacks and cancer. Some studies have shown this disparity persists when incomes, education and insurance coverage are equal.
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
. A 2003 Vanderbilt University study showed that Blacks were almost as three times as likely as Whites to be charged markups or loans financed by General Motors Acceptance Corp. When charged a markup, Black borrowers paid an average of $1229 in extra interest over the life of the loans, compared with the average of $867 paid by Whites---the study covered more than 1.5 million GMAC loans made between 1999 and April of 2003. The report found the differences to be nationwide, although they varied greatly among states. The biggest difference was in Wisconsin with Blacks paying 5 times more than Whites, and California with Blacks paying 1.3 times more. The report further showed that this discrimination was across the board regardless of the profession and credit rating of the buyer or the model of the car purchased. Another analysis of the most recent Federal Reserve Board's Survey of Consumer Finances data, completed on behalf of the Consumer Federation of America, found that in 2004, African-American car buyers paid much higher loan rates on new and used autos than white Americans.
Aside from the government forcing businesses to hire minorities regardless of skills or ability
and then paying for that college education
But I think getting a free ride through college without having to meet their standards
The percentages of those on welfare by race as of 2011 are listed below in descending order:
The percentages above does not tell the complete story by any means.
To put this in proper perspective one must recognize that blacks make up only 12.6% of of the total population while whites make up 72.4%.
Per capita, the welfare received by blacks is much higher than the welfare received by whites.
Among the poorest of the poor–single mothers, living below the poverty line with minor children to support 39.7 percent of AFDC clients are Black single mothers and 38.1 percent are White women with children. Food stamp recipients are 37.2 percent Black and 46.2 percent White. Medicaid benefits are paid to 27.5 percent Black recipients compared to 48.5 percent White clients.
