    Then again, most of what government deals with "doesn't scientifically exist" and "has been made up in our culture" -- so I don't see that as a reason for excluding considerations of race.

    If I had said the same thing but replaced the word “white” with “black”, I probably would have received an infraction and you probably would have supported said infraction.

    It isn’t that I think your comments were racist, it’s that you, and most of America, have double standards and you don’t realize that while males are no different from black males,

    You need to put your money where your mouth is and start naming the groups you are referring to or admit that you are an anti white male racist already.

    exactly what group of people in this country has less rights than another? The last I heard everybody has equal rights........except of course you are talking about the criminal element, who seemingly does have more rights than its victim in a court of law.....or at least they seem to be more protected

    Here's an overview:

    White privilege - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    White Nationalists believe that white people should have an identity as a group (or meta-group) sharing a relatively common genetic and cultural heritage, and work towards common interests.

    White Nationalism

    You can do a search as well, and you should be aware not all groups are as open. An oppressed group needs to work together a little more than a priviledged group.

    note that i said it should, but i dont think there is anyway to force such groups as the Black caucus or a White caucus to exist or not. But i don't respect such a thing and i consider it racist.

    If you advocate the "openness" of it, then you do recognize that labeling something as Black Caucus is openly racist? the double standard is wrong whether it is a minority or majority.
    Racist? No. When an oppressed group syas we can combat the oppression better as a group, try to help overome the deficit slavery and prejudice put us behind, that is not racism, but pragmatic tackling of a problem.
