    I wouldn't say whites rule the world. Asians are not ruled by whites, for example.

    And I could speculate all day about the existence of white oppression or not, but I cannot make an honest claim to having knowledge about its existence or non-existence in countries that I know nothing about.

    I say "dunno" in these cases becasue to say "yes" or "no" would be to make a claim of having kowledge which I do not have, and that would be a lie. Assuming that the OP was referring to the US, I voted "No", because I do have knowledge that whites are not an oppressed minority in the US.

    Simplictic response. Not worthy of meaningful answer.

    WTF do white people have to feel oppressed about?
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    I said I would not use the word oppressed. I would say disadvantaged in some cases though.

    Look at the rate of white CEOs, white white(no repeat) collar workers, white-black income disparities etc. Whites do far better than blacks in all of these. Whites outnumber blacks in congress, senate etc. I mean it took 44 presidents to have a single black president. Even after we were supposedly equal not a single party decided to give the ticket to a 'competent' black person for POTUS for nearly 50 years. In America, if you're in a position of power in government or a company, chances are 9 out of 10 times you're going to be white. I'm not saying that there is anything wrong with that but admitting it never hurt anyone.

    No....

    White people born in developed countries have every advantage in the world. A better poll would have read, "White people, would you have rather been born black?" Any white person not aspiring to be a rapper would have responded with no.

    I should have said the same thing the second i seen your response of:
    I would say disadvantaged in some cases though.
    Like things such as AA are successful in "leveling the playing field".
