Racists Give White People A Bad Name
Ron is a visitor to my blog who posted a comment to my article titled Reverse Discrimination Is Bogus. The comment was pure fictional racist garbage. I hate pure fictional racist garbage. And I really hate it when pure fictional racist garbage appears as a comment. Captain Ron wants to take a stab at explaining the realities of reverse discrimination and how the white community is suffering from the onslaught of unqualified black people taking white people’s employment and educational opportunities. To anyone with a firm grasp on reality this should be good for a laugh or two.
1.) Reverse discrimination is “discrimination against a member of a social group generally regarded as dominant or privileged, e.g. in employment or admission to a university,” However, this is not the only definition, I can site.
No problem here!
2.) You have it backwards, being black, female, or any minority makes any claim of discrimination automatic and white parties are routinely prosecuted without evidence. It’s in the news all the time like the white college boys who had their lives ruined only to find out later there was never any evidence at all. I could write a book about this alone. The bottom line is the only group no one takes seriously is “white males” when they claim discrimination. I know from experience.
This is such bull. What white party has been prosecuted without any evidence? “[T]he white college boys who had their lives ruined only to find out later there was never any evidence at all.” Well you go ahead and write your book. I’m pretty sure it will appear in the fiction category at the bookstore. If white males were never taken seriously when they claim discrimination then why are cases of reverse discrimination so prolific these days? Why is the Supreme Court on record for making grossly flippant rulings such as the best way to combat racism is not to look at racism. As if we all can walk into an employment office, fill out an application, and no one will ever know the race of the application. Why should white male’s claim of discrimination be taken seriously when the vast majority of American institutions are controlled by white males?
White people are so focused on individual discrimination. A white male can win discrimination cases because he, a single white individual, feels that he has been discriminated against. Racial discrimination refers to a policy where an entire group of people must deal with racial preferences that negatively affect an entire community’s ability to achieve educational and economic opportunities.
Those white boys’ lives are ruined? Please! I have every confidence that they will still find jobs and will still be able to use their family’s wealth to buy an education. Money has the affect to overcome a great deal of hurdles here in America. But on the flipside, how many black people, black neighborhoods, black communities have been affected by white people feeling entitled to keep black people out of their social circles? We are not talking about an individual, we are referring to an entire group of people.
3.) The race card is a practice routinely used by blacks to get their way. Quite frankly it’s the easy way, a short cut. For a white guy it’s only used as a last resort. I am talking about in today’s world, not worn out examples from the 1950’s. I have seen many saying so when they though no one was listening, I have heard blacks and other groups talking about ways to use this to get unfair treatment just so they wouldn’t have to do the same workloads as other co-workers. So to say it’s a myth, is a load of ….. A white guy typically can’t use the race card to get better treatment. It’s actually harder for any white guy to make a claim than anyone else simply because, we are white.
If that was the case every major corporation in the country would be well represented with black executives, black managers, and black professionals at all levels of employment instead of just the janitorial services or the mailroom. Your contention is that all black people have to do is call the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and BAAM we’re in. “I am talking about in today’s world, not worn out examples from the 1950’s. I have seen many saying so when they [thought] no one was listening,” You must be some kind of stealth ninja to be able to infiltrate black people talking about how they’re going to take advantage of the system so much. But take a break from spying on black people long enough to turn on the television and watch the news for a second. Listen to white people in West Virginia and Kentucky saying things like, “I just can’t see a black man being President.” What they meant to say is, “I don’t want any black man to be President.” That’s from earlier this week and not from 1950. And let’s not forget Geraldine Ferraro’s comment about the only reason people are voting for Barack Obama is because he is black. If these are not examples of white people playing the race card I don’t know what is.
4.) The facts are there are many tools used specifically to discriminate against whites; Equal opportunity and Affirmative action are prime examples. Many whites have been refused promotions and fired while people with lesser job experience have been hired or promoted to replace them over the years. Think back to the eighties and nineties for so many examples, it’s frightening. Anyone who has been in the work force for any good length of time, say twenty years or so can tell you these same things.
This is too ridiculous. How many white people have been passed over for a lesser qualified white person? But the only case that white people take note of is when they assume that a lesser qualified black person gets the opportunity. According to dominant culture logic, it is impossible for the black candidate to be the more qualified candidate simply because he or she is black. “Think back to the eighties and nineties for so many examples, it’s frightening.” What’s frightening is that white people like you continue to spread this propaganda without a shred of evidence to back it up. If this claim was remotely true black people would have a lower rate of unemployment, higher rates of pay than their white counterparts, and all we have to do is take a look at any American corporation to see that it isn’t true. But some people will go to their death pushing this crap they pull out their ass.
5.) Everyone I know (white) has been let go while blacks and other minorities were kept on. Often they took these jobs at a lower rate of pay but not because of management, but because they wanted to undercut the person ahead of them to get their jobs. Many pay scales, benefits, etc have been lost because the incoming workers didn’t care about these things. Now they are destroyed and many job positions are combined, unions ineffective, lost healthcare, etc are gone. This was done just because the incoming minority workers didn’t have the experience, knowledge, or plain common sense to protect the workers rights they trampled just to get their jobs.
The propaganda is truly strong with this one.
Again, black unemployment rates run considerably higher than white unemployment rates. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, white unemployment runs about 4.1% while black unemployment runs about 8.3%. White men, the victims of your work of fiction, have an unemployment rate of about 4.2%. Black men, who can walk into any employment office and make a complaint to get a job, have an unemployment rate of about 9.1%. Don’t take my word for it. Please visit the Bureau of Labor Statistics by clicking here.
On average black people earn less than what white people earn. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, While the average income of the white male, runs about $822, the average income of the black male, who according to you claims is constantly being promoted at the expense of the more qualified white male, is about $604. The black male makes only seventy three percent the salary of his white counterpart. Or examined from another perspective, the average white male earns almost forty percent more than his black counterpart. Government supplied facts appear to be unraveling your propaganda.

6.) Our economic structure is severely crippled today and instead of being a world leader like we were twenty five or so years ago, we have fell behind many other countries. We eliminated good paying jobs, benefits, and our global standing just so people could take a shortcut to getting a good job, instead of earning a job by hard work. Instead of hiring based on experience today, we only hire based on race, sex, or age.
Our economic security has been weakened considerably because American corporations that are so focused on squeezing every penny out of an investment that these companies are willing to engage in a variety of policies that continue to cut into middle America’s ability to earn a living. Jobs are exported overseas to countries with a lower standard of living and less government regulation to make a far more profitable environment. Companies use every excuse to raise profits and lower expenses. The vast majority of these countries are controlled by white people. Speaking of short cuts, these companies are willing to take a short cut to maximum profitability by exporting jobs instead of investing in the work force. When the products and services are produced outside the country, that’s less people inside the country who can afford to take advantage of the products and services without borrowing money. As a nation, We have borrowed ourselves into a debt hole that we will take centuries to dig ourselves out of.
That’s a real oversimplification of the problems we are facing, but it should be sufficient compared to the racist muck of your comment. Like a good racist/sexist, you want to blame America’s problem on minorities and women. White people like you talk about black people taking short cuts when every comment you made is based on a short cut of a thought process, as if any thought was given to this crap at all.
7.) You wonder why racism is a problem today? Because unlike what our founding fathers intended, equality for all, everything its tilted in the minorities favor because a few wanted a free ride.
I beg your pardon. I don’t wonder why racism is a problem today, yesterday, or tomorrow. Racism is a problem because despite the reality of white privilege, especially white male privilege, people like you will continue to operate out of a condition of fear and ignorance about things that you have not the slightest clue as to what you are talking about. Everything is tilted in minorities favor despite government statistics and realities all around us that say differently. You are a credit to your creed. It is people like you who give white people a bad name.
