White male here.
It gets real old being constantly told what an evil no-good bastard I am because I'm a white male.
Fed up with it really.
Why be fair and realistic when I'm always going to be the excuse for everyone else's issues?
I wasn't angry for most of my life.
Getting a bit testy now.
Not talking about you. White males in general. I know a few who are aware and don't act out their angry on lower status people. But I always worry in these types of discussions when someone reacts "I'm not like that" and therefore the premise is incorrect. You can't disprove a general rule with a specific instance of the rule being invalid.
Sorry you are testy (perhaps from the word testes). You're entitled just look at why this subject triggers 'testiness'.
Although the thread is about the US, I cannot agree that "angry white men" are the biggest problem on the planet.

Personally, I think we would form the same opinions for the same reasons. People may pre-judge a person, usually to themselves, but final lasting judgement comes from knowing someone. Pre-judgement, by the way, is in-born. And is right to have. If you have been wronged by a St. Bernard, you will probably be leary of them. When experience leads a person to pre-judge, while they may not be correct about a particular person...they are right to use their instinct.
Sorry but...instinct and experience isn't racism. My experience shows that most people are asses anyway.
Society said white males were the only ones that were racist and sexist and now we know they lie and they wont admit it. Moral decay, no common direction in our society. They want it to crash and burn only so they can spread the misery around equally.
This guy is about as accurate at portraying the modern white male as Paul Elam is portraying the Feminist "egalitarian" (cough).
But you are using the term angry white male.
I am an angry white male.
I can even remove the angry part and it comes down to white male.
You are practicing the same bigotry that white males are constantly accused of.
The 'testiness' comes not from the 'subject' but from the brain dead mindset that pigeonholes everyone into a group for the sake of pejorative accusations.
By the way,
Lower status people?
Hispanics chose to STEAL MY ANCESTORS STATE... much easier to STEAL what one group built than to build your own.,.
AND NOW< the white guy gets picked on and discriminated against by FOREIGN INVADERS!
I WISH AMERICA would have been for those whose ANCESTORS built it.
not a anymore... the white male WON all the battles over the last 500 years. WHy should those that couldn't FIX THEIR OWN LANDS!! ---- have been ALLOWED to turn southern California into a BIG TIJUANA?!?!?
I HATE YOU of you are not a real AMerican (200 years here)

While Mexico claimed California, the mainly Mestizos from the Caribbean moved to California by the Spaniards, mainly pushed by the Catholic Church, led by Junipero Serra, a Franciscan Monk/sado masachist, from Spain, who set up the missions across California, did not want Mexican rule, because the Spanish conquistadors who still rule Mexico are extremely ruthless people.
Mexico never ruled California, it was never theirs. They had no more rights to the land than the Americans who showed up and took over the territory.
When it comes to obama supporters they have played the race card so often and wrongfully, that racism is losing its meaning more and more each day. Obama is not even pure black, he is half-black and half-asian.
