    White men have too much pride in themselves... They think they have earned everything above and beyond their minority co workers and peers. It's really hard to feel sorry for you guys. Maybe you don't get hired or promoted based on your merit... but oh, that couldn't be a possibility at all, a white man being unhappy with his status in life is always due to minorities around them getting favoritism.

    I am glad you oppose racial preferences and affirmative action then

    that seems rather a racist position. the fact is blacks get into top schools with scores far far below white males (and now white females) and Asians. The famous New Haven Firefighters case showed that blacks get jobs with inferior test scores over working class (sorry its not rich yale guys applying to be firefighters) white boys.
