    Are those statistics grounded in race or simply in criminal activity? We've got a few bars around town that get lots of police attention. The majority of the clientele is Mexican. Those bars get all that attention because they are a hotbed for drunken brawls, not just because they are frequented by Mexicans.

    This is so far off, it's not even funny. To address a few of the "points:"

    Blacks have the right to take pride in their race. Whites don't.
    Who says you can't be proud? I am.



    Blacks get to play the race card. Whites don't.
    Which apparently isn't stopping you from trying.

    Black people have the right to demonize white people. White people don't have the right to demonize black people.
    Which again, isn't stopping you from trying


    Black people are a "protected class." White people are not.
    Do white people need "protection?'

    Blacks are "cool." Whites are "squares" and "rednecks."
    Who says? The "typical liberal" that only exists in the RW blogoshpere?


    Black men are sexual supermen. White men are sexually inadequate. Black men have huge penises. White men have small, inadequate penises.
    That's largely known to be not totally true. It is sometimes cited as a joke, but I guess when we're trying to prove how white people are persecuted there is no sense of humor.

    Blacks have "civil rights". Whites don't.
    Really? Where do whites not get to vote?



    Blacks are morally superior to whites.
    Says who? You again?

    "[Blacks] enjoy cultural cache around the world as victors over oppression and the hard reality of what that looks like at this point in world history. The music that they enjoy, the clothes that they wear, their very mannerisms carry a certain amount of gravitas."[3]
    Just because black people always have pushed the envelope on musical expression is more of a criticism of white people.

    Blacks can assign collective racial guilt to "you white folks." White people cannot do the reverse because that would be racist.
    What are we going to make them feel guilty about? Allowing themselves to be captured as slaves? Submitting to Jim Crow laws?

    White people everywhere, and at all times, bear guilt for the crimes of a minority of white people in the past (e.g., slave owners, Adolf Hitler). Making blacks bear guilt, as a race, for the despicable crimes of their criminal minority is stereotyping, racist, and an insult to reason; after all, no one should ever be blamed for the acts of some unrelated person.
    Which is exactly what you're trying to do by putting out racial stereotypes like "welfare queens" or "bigger dicks."

    Blacks have "black culture." Whites are not allowed to have white culture.
    What do you call St. Patrick's Day? The only real difference is that white people can point to specific cultures based on the national origin of their ancestors. Black Americans generally can't because they have no idea

    Whites have to walk on eggshells around blacks. Blacks don't give a **** what whites think.
    Name one way in which you have to walk on eggshells? Is this about not getting to call them "niggers?" That's just being a decent person, which if you are Christian, is pretty much what Jesus taught you to do.

    Blacks have the right to never be portrayed as criminals or low-lifes in films or on TV. Bad guys on the screen must always be white.
    When's the last time you watched TV? Seriously, this is wrong in so many ways....

    Blacks can silence and intimidate whites by calling them racist. Whites can't silence and intimidate blacks because that would be racist.
    A common mistake around here is not knowing the meaning of the term racism. Racism is a societal thing and in some cases a governmental thing. Black society can't intimidate white society, and blacks have never controlled the government in the United States and used it to keep white folks "in their place."

    Forcing whitey to apologize shows black power and clout. Whites can never force blacks to apologize because that would constitute a lynching.
    What exactly should they apologize for? "We're sorry that we did all the work on your plantations so you could make money?" "We're sorry that you put laws in place that dictated where we could go?"


    "Whites are monitored, pestered, and punished for preposterous reasons--for a look, for an innocent word, for wearing a T-shirt, for expressing a plausible argument--but blacks can say almost anything with perfect impunity."[5]
    I'm not monitored or punished. Probably because I've never done anything that would require those things.

    "In discussions of race between black people and white people the conscious black person is always right; is always the ultimate authority on questions having to do with race and racism; must always be regarded as the ‘injured party,’ or the oppressed. . . . [Whites] cannot possibly be expected to be objective about questions of race."[6]
    In discussions of race, when's the last time whites were actually the aggrieved party?

    Blacks may work for explicitly racial goals but whites may not.
    Which explicity racial goals do you want to work for? Getting white people elected to office? Getting whites the right to vote? Getting more white people into management? Please enlighten us on what explicity racial goals you'd like to work for.

    Blacks are permitted to notice race. Whites are not
    .

    Strangely, if you substituted "black" and "white" in there with "conservative" and "liberal" that would be the rule here.

    "It is quite acceptable for either party to explicitly go after the black, Hispanic, or even the Jewish vote. In fact both parties gain an indispensable moral authority by doing so. But it is absolutely verboten for either party, or any white candidate, to appeal to whites as a racial identity group. Racial identity is simply forbidden to whites in America and across the entire Western world. Black children today are hammered with the idea of racial identity and pride, yet racial pride in whites constitutes a grave evil. Say 'I'm white and I'm proud' and you are a National Socialist."[7]
    So no party goes after the white vote? Think about what you said.


    It can be publicly admitted that blacks are superior to whites in certain pursuits (i.e. basketball). It can never be publicly admitted that whites are superior to blacks in other pursuits (i.e. winning Nobel prizes in science).
    Blacks that are better at basketball do get more opportunities than whites that aren't. Also, there are many white pro basketballers who get a roster spot that are better than some black players. That really doesn't sound racist to me.

    Would you like to assert that blacks are somehow inferior in science? I'm not stopping you.

    is that white privilege really?

    Did the store owner open his doors with the notion that all white customers are honest and blacks are not, or did experience change how he ran his store?
    There are any number of commonalities of customers that could be used to determine honesty. The fact that color of skin is seemingly an appropriate one to find as a commonality means there is still discrepancy in our system.

    You had your chance but you blew it.

    If you would have asked him if he didn't notice that you're white, I'm sure that he would have let you go with a warning.

    The texters are a different breed altogether. They're in the "asshole race" (you didn't even know it exists, but it does).

    I don't care if I get called a name, but Asian women are - generally speaking - the worst drivers in the history of the world.

    As Wiki defines it: "White privilege (or white skin privilege) is a term for societal privileges that benefit white people beyond what is commonly experienced by non-white people in the same social, political, or economic circumstances" White privilege - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I know that the popular meme is that blacks are all poor because they don't marry to have children, but that's nonsense. The idea that two people who are both very poor are somehow going to be less poor through because of a marriage ceremony is absurd. No amount of marriages (which completely ignores whether or not any of the people involved actually want to be married to one another) is going to alter this 1 to 5 statistic. Please put this tired meme in the trash where it belongs.
