    Entitled?.....Please.........

    That is the most ridiculous response I have heard. You had the privileges that come from being born white to aid you. AA provides that qualified persons are not rejected on the basis of race or background. And those benefiting the most from AA have been "white women", statistically.

    "White privilege" clearly does not exist. I read your link and learned it is coming out alongside the leftist women studies movement. This is the height of adopting a victimization viewpoint and efforts to reduce "white privilege" are transparently seen to be efforts to artificially level the cultural playing field without actually doing anything constructive nor earning it through hard work. It will reduce respect for the hard work efforts that others do. It is pure institutionalized racism.
    Oh, so because you don't like the message, you shoot the messenger.
    I don't have a victimization viewpoint. I, too, have worked for everything that I have. And hard. You're in denial. I am not. If playing fields were level, there would be nothing to crow about. They are not. And until they are, folks like myself will point it out.
    Question: Were there any black participants at the Renaissance Festival you attended?

    It's why sane and rational people are taking tea partiers to task, for their racist and anti-American stances.

    Please. If I weren't reminded everyday that I'm a black person, and not in charge, I could easily overlook the BS. Unfortunately, that isn't the case...and political debate forums make it abundantly clear.




    IMHO, in order for people to unite, they first have to unload most of all their preconceived notions (read : crap), and suspend judgment.....unfortunately, hard to do for most folks.
    Please.... This is your personal problem, there are plenty of blacks in supervisory positions.....
    & leaders of countries....

    Oh, it's not a problem.......anymore. Indeed. And then there is Oprah.
    I'd love to here her story of the crap she had to put up with to get where she is. Don't pretend or play games. I'm no child.

    Please, next time you reply with a comment in the middle, correctly multi-quote it.

    Your description of AA is actually Equal Opportunity law. No discrimination on the basis of race, among other things. AA forces the hiring of less qualified minorities and is an abomination.

    You do have a victimization viewpoint. You feel that opportunities are owed to you as a result of your race.

    Glad to hear you are working hard. Change your attitude and there is no telling what you will be able to accomplish.

    The playing fields are not level because of a lack of education and wealth. It has nothing to do with racial inequality or racism. Many blacks are one's who inject racism into the mix and your "white privilege" is an excellent example of this.

    Generally speaking, if you could choose, would you rather go into an interview as a white male or a black male?

    I am not interested in specific exceptions to the general rule, just the rule itself.

    I personally am smart enough to know that my chances of getting the job are increased if I enter an interview as a white male. And god help me, I am thankful that I am white for that and other similar reasons.

    Knowing my own answer to this question, I know that racism is alive and kicking.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
