    State senator for five minutes that voted Absent ninety percent of the time. Harvard grades are top secret. Best selling book chronicled his drug use and binge drinking and hatred for whites and America. Attorney that never was in a court of law.

    I agree with your statement. However, to be fair, I think if any race were in power, they would favor their own kind.

    Actually Romney parlayed Bain Capital into one of the most successful companies of its kind. Big companies like Staples and Sports Authority are what they are today because of his intervention while at Bain. He also was governor of the state of MA. Obama served all of 2 years in the US Senate and came in with zero leadership experience and zero impact on the economy of the US or the state of Illinois. Not saying I agree with the other poster's claim that Obama had zero accomplishments at all, but Romney's accomplishments hardly ended at "inheriting lots of money", and being a law professor isn't a qualification for POTUS.

    And what did he do with that money? He was also a governor which is a very traditional transition to president.

    Why? Why not favor like-minded? Why not favor regional natives? Why not favor similar economic backgrounds? Etc. Why is racism inevitable?

    I wish I had a answer to to your question. I guess it is a human flaw in us. We gravitate to what we know and are use to. I don't necessarily think it is racism, but more like favoritism.

    I'm from Los Angeles. Please tell me exactly this place is? I never heard any of my white friends say that they were pulled over because they were white.

    Especially by the LAPD !!!!

    You caught my point, that it's not necessarily always done as a conscious decision to be biased or unfair. Part of it is familiarity, some of it based on actual qualifications and some on a continuation of circumstances.

    It some regards, it can actually be a liability.
    I don't know about it being a liability.

    First, I don't see how one can make the case via stats. Give an individual case example, then we can determine if that case is uniquely capable of benefiting only white people. Second these arguments seem to be quickly changing from what is "white privilege" to what is potentially discriminatory. Not at all the same thing.
