    Not sure that I would use the word oppressed. I would say disadvantaged. Someone earlier mentioned special advantages for minorities during college selection. There is also a set aside for government spending that tilts the playing field to minority businesses. We know that much of the housing mess was due to lowering of credit scores, down payments etc. The goal was to increase home ownership. Everyone is paying for that mess.

    As you heard in the post from the person in Florida, I would expect the situation to worsen here. We have a president that laments the greed of wall street, but seems fine will rappers and ball players that make several times what the head of the best financial organisation in the world made last year.

    Generally, no. However, that gives little to no excuse for conduct that is contrary to decent behavior. Statistical minorities are guilty of this as well as those who are in the majority.

    All the people who answered ďYesĒ must live in really bad neighborhoods. Where I live, cops donít pull me over for driving while white, gas station attendants and supermarket clerks donít eye me like Iím going to steal stuff, banks donít treat me like Iím poor and unreliable until I repeatedly bounce checks, people arenít automatically making internal attributions when I get angry in public, and I can go out of my house reasonably secure in the fact that any injustices committed against me will be addressed by the authorities.

    I heard Justin Timberlake’s version of Cry Me a River when I read the title of this thread.
    I say, the individual of any race is being oppressed.

    I do know that a single white male of age 24 has a harder time of getting health coverage through welfare than a single white female of the same age. I know because it happened to me many years ago. I also know that there are lots of grants and scholarships dedicated to someone of color or being female and yet a white male has no scholorships or grants dedicated to white males. I know that there were once some politicians that were discussing how some money was being spent and when one of the white politicians said that it was "all going down a blackhole" the black guy that was in there started hollering that the guy was racist. So basically a white person can't say pretty much anything now adays without being considered a racist.

    I could probably come up with many more examples. But what good would it do?
    Jeremiah Wright, Obama, Sharpton, Jackson.. all those guys have been accused of being racist for things they have said, so I don't really agree with that statement.

    I think the NAACP has a scholarship that whites can qualify for, if they are a racial minority in their High school. I am not sure if it's the NAACP or somebody else.. I just know it exists because when I was in school, my friends boyfriend applied for it.

    That may not be true. Some may be being denied justice.


    I watched the testimony. He heard a lot of things that were anti-white, pro-minorities. One comment from a superior was something like "I didn't take this job to prosecute blacks". There were cases of whites being intimidated at voting booths that they just wouldn't take the case..


    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ @@@@@@@@@


    Christopher Coates, former voting chief for the departmentís Civil Rights Division, spoke under oath Friday morning before the U.S. Commission on Civil
    Rights, in a long-awaited appearance that had been stonewalled by the Justice Department for nearly a year.
    Coates discussed in depth the DOJís decision to dismiss intimidation charges against New Black Panther members who were videotaped outside a Philadelphia polling place in 2008 dressed in military-style uniforms ó one was brandishing a nightstick ó and allegedly hurling racial slurs. The case has drifted in and out of the limelight over the past year as the commission has struggled to investigate it. Former Justice official J. Christian Adams fueled the controversy when he testified in July and accused his former employer of showing ďhostilityĒ toward cases that involved white victims and black defendants.

    Wright, Sharpton, and Jackson ARE racists. Though Obama has given evidence that he may be racist there is no clear indication of it. Unless of course your just looking to put the guy down on purpose and taking things to the extreme. But that is 3 maybe 4 people out of the entire black population that gets what they say printed in the media. Compare those with the amount of whites that has been printed in the media. I have also been told that "only whites can be racist". Has anyone ever said that "only blacks can be racist" and not been called on it?

    Oh there are lots of grants and scholarships that include whites in it. But that's not what I am saying..or at least thats not what I meant to say. What I am saying is that there are lots of grants and scholarships that are exclusively for someone of color or for women. There are no grants or scholarships that are exclusively for white males.
