    They generalize, just the same. They'll say that all cops are control freak assholes.

    Get back to me when;

    1. Your Identity automatically gives you the Terrorist/Communist label

    2. Your identity puts your citizenship status in immediate question

    3. Your job is automatically assumed that your a product of Affirmative Action

    4. Your assumed that you speak no english

    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    About the only drawback that I've dealt with in regard to being white is the ignorant assumption that my ancestors had some complicity in the enslavement of Africans in America simply because I'm white.

    My ancestors were poor Irish hicks. When my parents came here, they didn't have a pot to piss in. They were just a couple of uneducated immigrant micks who came here to try and make life better or themselves and their kids.

    Being white does not make someone immune from being oppressed or poor or uneducated. Being white doesn't grant extra opportunities. I know for a fact that some of my black friends that I went to school with had more opportunities to go on to a good college than I did, because their parents were doctors and lawyers while my old man was an uneducated construction worker. And I had a many, many more opportunities to succeed than my father did when he was younger. He wasn't even given the opportunity for a highschool education, let alone a college education. All the learning he did (which was quite a bit, considering he taught himself calculus) was entirely done by him on his own without any help from anyone.

    Opportunities in this world are based on income. That's why there is a racial disparity that still exists. Proportionally, whites tend to be more likely to have money than other races. That doesn't mean that all whites have money or that non-whites do not have money.
