    I never said that I suffered from it personally. In all walks of life people treat better than most others simply because of my looks. And that's fine with me.

    However, that does not mean that others do not suffer from institutionalized anti-white racism.

    If you look at it objectively, it starts way back in grade school because white kids must share a classroom with blacks who have been scientifically proven to have a lower IQ. Their education suffers because of blacks holding back the class.

    A. To treat a large group of Americans as inferior citizens who are just not capable of making it without government mandates and assistance, i.e. AA?

    B. To consign intelligent, capable people to inferior status in their colleagues eyes because those colleagues believe they got their position not because of merit, but because of AA?

    C. Or let people sink and swim on their own initiative, competence, credentials, and merit so that they finally, at last, are considered equals with their white peers?
    More straw from a nest.

    You don't know what AA is, you have created a false narrative.

    See, that's the difference. All black people do suffer from unjust discrimination, every day of their life. And trying to compare that with not getting into a school, once if ever, is BS.

    So by all means, because you can point to somebody who is incapable of dealing with the hard stuff we all deal with in life, let's keep AA and all the other do-gooder programs that are convincing people they are psycologically and economically harmed; i.e. inferior beings and therefore they are entitled to be treated as special. Let's don't encourage them to see themselves as equals, competent, capable human beings who hold their destiny in their own hands. Let's don't teach them that virtually all people have adversity to overcome and they are as capable as any other person in overcoming it. Yeah, that's the way to go. It's the one sure way to keep racism alive and well in this country and consign whole demographics to more generations of an underclass status so the do-gooders can feel righteous.

    No, all do not.
    That is nothing but bs!

    But since you made such an absurd claim, prove it.

    Getting into college can make a huge difference in people's lives.

    Granted, I probably had a huge advantage over my peers by not going to college and going straight into a career because I didn't need college. I was already smarter than the vast majority of college professors anyways. But getting into the right college can mean a lot to the average Joe.

    I'm living that narrative and I can defend it. You on the other hand seem to have nothing but ad hominem one-liners to offer. I bet you can do better than that if you try.

    Wow, I did not realize just how messed up your beliefs are. To see in this day and age this kind of racism is just unbelievable.
