    Do not look if you are sensitive

    This was past on to me so I thought I would repost it... Thoughts and feelings on this topic are welcome.


    You call me "Cracker", "Honkey", "Whitey", "Gringo" and you think it's OK.
    ...But if I call you "Kike", "Towelhead", WOP, "Camel Jockey", "Gook", "nigger" or "wetback" you call me a racist.

    -You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you, so why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?

    -You have the United Negro College Fund.

    -You have Martin Luther King Day.

    -You have Black History Month.

    -You have Cesar Chavez Day.

    -You have Yom Hashoah

    -You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi

    -You have the NAACP.

    -You have BET.


    -If we had WET(white entertainment television) ...we'd be racist.

    -If we had a White Pride Day... you would call us racist.

    -If we had white history month... we'd be racist.

    -If we had an organization for only whites to "advance" our lives... we'd be racist.

    -If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships...you know we'd be racist.

    -In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights. If we marched for our race and rights...you would call us racist.

    -Did you know that some high school students decided to make a club for only the white students because the other ethnicities had them... they all got sent to court for being racist but the african-american, Latino, and Asia clubs were not even questioned.

    -You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you're not afraid to announce it. But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists.



    I am white.

    I am proud.

    But, you call me a racist.



    Why is it that only whites can be racists?

    Now watch, I'll be a racist for posting this...

    So what? No one will repost this for fear of being called racist

    I'm not proud of my race. It's just a skin pigment I happened to be born with. Nothing to be proud of there.

    I am very suspicious of anyone who makes their race a part of their identity. I believe I'd be exactly the same person I am now, even if I had been born with a different skin pigment.

    Very interesting.

    Jackalope - I realize and understand that you believe the color of a man's skin shouldn't and doesn't define him or you, but if you don't mind me asking, what race are you?

    I am very proud of being white just as other races are proud of what they are. If that makes me a bad person, oh well!!!

    I am white. And yes, I'm sure it's easy for me to say that race doesn't matter. I've never experienced the overt racism that most minority people have experienced. But discrimination against whites does happen. Most companies and government agencies (including law enforcement) want more minorities working for them so the look "diverse."

    I think I would have been hired a long time ago if I was a minority or a female. It's not fair, but it's reality. So I could sit around whining about how unfair it is, or I could keep applying until I get the job I want. I'm going for the latter.

    I am prejudice against any group who votes 95% Democrat and has an abnormally high criminal involvement per capita... Funny how those things seem to go hand-in-hand.

    Anyone wanta dispute that last assertion? I'd just point you to the FBI's web site.

    So fix that and I won't be prejudice anymore... If Black leaders even acknowledged that they need to clean their own house, then that would be a huge step forward - Half of the solution is admitting that the problem even exists.

    How about this for screwed up.

    I have a friend that used to work in the Hate Crime Unit. He was told off the bat this, Black on White no hate crime, White on black, hispanic, asian, arab, etc. hate crime. Straight vs Gay hate crime, gay vs. straight not a hate crime. We wouldn't want to piss of any of the mayors constituents seeing he kisses the minority populations ass for votes.

    I think someone around my area got arrested for a hate crime for calling someone "cracker" while beating him. I was shocked.

    Assault is assault - The person's state of mind certainly comes into play in deciding the class of offense and punishment (as in any crime), but to have Hate Crimes as separate statutes is nuts.

    Sounds Orwellian to me ("Thought Police").

    I'm a white male and I hate the whole "equal oppurtunity employer" bullshit. What ever happened to the best man (or woman) for the job? Companies have to lower their standards just to hire people that they probably wouldn't have if they didn't have to follow those guidelines. It just doesn't make sense...

    Wrong = Affirmative action by definition is is a policy or a program whose stated goal is to redress past or present discrimination through active measures to ensure equal opportunity, generally concerning education, employment or seats in parliament and/or government.

    in other words pass up qualified people if there isn't enough to fill a quota. That is racist in itself. I also think it is wrong that there is a race box on any job application. I have always put other.
