    Lucky for you, I say. But that doesn't diminish what others experience. Try to think about others besides yourself.
    How did you get discriminated against because you were Jewish?

    Because they don't. The system is already sort of fixed in favor of the straight, white, wealthy male.

    Generally, a white person can willingly put themselves in a situation where they are victims of racial discrimination, but they can also willingly remove themselves from that. I don't fault them for that, nor blame them, that's sort of where "white guilt" comes from, which is something that's been fabricated by the left to deal with racism. However, I think it's important that white people understand that they have a certain privilege that other groups of people do not.

    I haven't come across a situation in which a white person experiences racism for their entire life the way a black person might, can you give me an example so I understand?
    Why can't you say the same thing but take out the white part?

    Does a wealthy black male have less opportunity than a wealthy white male?

    No, it doesn't work well and with some of the posts you read here you can easily understand why.

    No, but psychologically it is the same thing. The Catholics are a repressed minority and experience or did experience much the same discrimination as blacks. It would have been a very relevant example. Granted one of the few, but a good one.

    Well I was hoping to get an example that encompasses a larger area and certainly a longer time than that. I'm not so sure that compares to centuries of slavery and racial oppression worldwide.

    He likely does.

There are ignorant people everywhere and if we are going to base are lives on what ignorant people think or say we'll never get any rest.
    Good point.

    That doesn't mean they've never been discriminated against.

    And there you have it. The leftwing hero is a bonafide modern day racist.
    Rather than call him racists, why not just say that he suffers from "white envy"..

    Is it the consensus then that Black men suffer from White Envy and White men suffer from Penis Envy?
