    Do whites have more privileges? We have had a black president for eight years,more minority entitlement programs and still I hear about "white privilege" What do you think? It seems as if the "minority privilege" is greater than the "white privilege" and has been so for a number of years.

    Without us to pay for it all; they'd starve.

    Personally, my ears are tired of hearing the apologists and my back is getting sore.

    We have the privilege of being required to tolerate being called offensive names like "cracker" and "gringo".
    Racism is bad regardless who it's coming from and who it's directed at. I wish people would give it a rest an get on with life. We all have enough real problems without having to tolerate problems people invent so they can achieve "victim" status.

    Don't forget "pinkies."

    The problem is "hate crimes," ethnic slurs," and all the rest are limited to some, but not all people.

    Not just that, but WHY something was done makes NO DIFFRENCE to WHAT was done, so why does it have a different penalty?
    If a window is broken, because of a loose baseball, it's a piece of glass a little work, and a "sorry". At worst it is a court visit and an order to pay damages.
    If there is "Hate" involved it's jail time and damages and penalties, and loss of Rights due to FELONY status. It's the SAME frikken window!!:eek:[soap]

    @chimo Go back and read the CoC item 2. Pretty close to that edge.

    My last post in Treatment of Women thread applies to any group demanding equality. They're their own worst enemy. You can't demand special treatment and then whine about lack of equality. I believe equal rights means equal RESPONSIBILITIES!!! And all the fake cries about discrimination make it that much harder for the real cases to get treated fairly. I believe MLK would be really disheartened by the crap today. His famous speech talked about being judged by character, not color. Yet if a black person gets killed by someone defending themselves, the media portrays it as a hate crime. However a black guy attacking someone of a different ethnicity is the victim's 'fault' for 'encouraging' the crime simply by being in the presence of the criminal.

    I can post some vids if you want, but statistically, every category where "white privilege" is claimed, Asians actually do better.

    White privilege rates right up there with the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. It's pure fantasy that people pushing different rights use to get their way.

    White privilege is serving 4 years in USAF, working way thru college, being 78 years old and still working and being slightly upset by a 25 year old colored women who has never been married, has 3 children, lived her whole life on welfare and having a college education in black studies paid for by the government complaining on NPR about white privilege and how we are holding her back from leading the good life. I admit that she may not be your average person, but she sure rattles my chain.

    Well I just finished our US TAXES for 2015.... It seems that the US .GOV is now paying ME, to file a. tax Return....This year, they paid ME back $158US More, than I paid them... In Income Tax... That and my SS Income, My Cannery Income, AlaskaChick's SSDI, and her Alaska State Retirement Income, still doesn't get us above the Federal Poverty Level..... If we didn't own two non-adjacent chunks of Alaska, we would qualify for an EBT Card... However, with all that, we live very comfortably, and have few complaints, with our lifestyle...Life is GOOD... We both worked hard, saved our Assetts, planned for reTIREDment, found the "Right Place & Job" Others may call this "White Privilage" but no one gave either of us, ANYTHING. I worked my way thru College, on weekends, and Nights... AlaskaChick paid for Nursing School, by cleaning Toilets, and making Beds, every summer, at the Cannery Bunkhouses... I do not begrudge others, their issues, just do NOT whine to this Child, about "White Priviledge" .....

    Heh. I'll not bore the membership other than to say I was privileged to write a (to me) large check to the Internal Ripoff Service.

    I wrote an additional 10K+ check this year to the IRS..... on top of what me and the Mrs. have paid weekly throughout the year.
    I am not feeling privileged... I am feeling like my right to liberty has been infringed!!!
