Is it unfair to be white?

By Bobby Eberle

Ok, if there is anything that really sets me off, it's the incredible hypocrisy that comes from the left when dealing with issues of race. We are supposed to be striving as a society to all get along... to purge racism from our daily lives. Yet whether it is racial quotas, preferences, or even the rhetoric that comes from Barack Obama... everything from the left is set up to divide, not unite. Now, liberal groups along with a university have put together the "Unfair to be White" campaign. And yes... it's for real.

What do you get when you mix the University of Minnesota-Diluth (UMD) with left wing organizations like the NAACP, YWCA, and the League of Women Voters? You get a program called "Unfair to be White," in which whites are somehow supposed to feel guilt for... being white.

According to the campus web site CampusReform.org, "The project disseminates its message, that "society was setup for us [whites]" and as such is "unfair," through an aggressive campaign of online videos, billboards, and lectures. The ads feature a number of Caucasians confessing their guilt for the supposed "privilege" that comes along with their fair features."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Do_w2V0-3D0

CampusReform.org goes on to report:

Documents obtained exclusively by Campus Reform this week, through a public records request, however, show that students on campus have expressed outrage over the administration's support of the racially-charged campaign.

One student, whose identity was redacted in the documents released by UMD, e-mailed Chancellor Black expressing his discontent, writing that the Un-fair campaign "is in fact UNFAIR."

The UnfairCampaign.org web site states that its mission is "To raise awareness about white privilege in our community, provide resources for understanding and action, and facilitate dialogue and partnership that result in fundamental, systemic change towards racial justice."

People of color experience incidents of racism every day, and they have long asked "when will white people in our community stand up and speak out about racism?" This campaign is part of a response to that question. Racial justice will never be achieved until we as white people address white privilege and work to change it.

Work to change it? How? With more programs based strictly on race? Come on! That is EXACTLY why racial strife continues at the level that it does. These groups such as the NAACP and UnfairCampaign have no interest in a color blind society. Their entire existence is based on continued racial conflict.

Want to do something real to address race relations? How about hire on merit? How about getting rid of race-based scholarships? How about having a president of the United States who stays out of cases like Trayvon Martin and who doesn't make statements like, "I don't know the facts, but the police acted stupidly," when referencing white police officers arresting Obama's black friend.

This is a common sense issue that too often lacks common sense. I'm half white and half hispanic. How am I supposed to feel? I guess half of me should feel guilty, right? I don't have time for that... the other half is ready to go build a house!

      “When men yield up the privilege of thinking, the last shadow of liberty quits the horizon.” – Thomas Pain.

      Liberal Democrat race baiters gave up the privilege of thinking, long ago, soon followed by giving up their ability to act on their own. In the real America of accomplishment it is the ability to think, not one’s color that paves the road to success and PRIVILEGE which people who can only focus on color never get to travel.

      “It is the province of knowledge to speak, and it is the privilege of wisdom to listen.” –Oliver Wendall Holmes

      Our pathetic peripatetic mouth movers of color obsession should listen and take note of the real meaning of privilege,,,the privilege of wisdom, only then will success follow the tainted color of their excuses for the failure of themselves to contribute to society in a meaningful way.

      Perhaps that is because you see the content of a person’s character, not the color of their skin, or the place they were born, or even the language they speak or the accent their English is spoken with. AMERICAN has no description by color. It is the way we work, live, and interact with others. Only those who see themselves as disadvantaged, are.

    I’d have to say that we may have to agree to disagree with some of the statements you’ve made throughout your article. Is it unfair to be white? Of course not! But to act as though racism does not exist in society is rather naive. “Want to do something real to address race relations? How about hire on merit? How about getting rid of race-based scholarships?” In a utopian society this might be possible, but unfortunately race is a factor in our society and there are those whom hire based on race and those whom do not accept applicants based on race. I’ve seen this first hand with the company that I work for. So it’s quite easy to say “hire based on merit” when you are not the one that has a stigma attached to your race. Walk a mile in the shoes of a black male or female and see whether or not you have the same view point.

      Walk in the shoes of an unemployed White Anglo Saxon male over 45 who is trying to look for a job in a government dictated world where companies are forced to meet and display racial hiring quotas not based on ability but the ability to just take up space. Black Americans have been here in America for over 450 years and Native AMericans long before that and if they are unable to provide jobs or successful businesses for their people in that amount of time they have been operating in a pradigm of misaligned priorities of entitlement rather than performance. It is NOT unfair to be white or any other color, it IS unfair to raise your kids to use their color as a crutch to fall back upon when they are faced with the same life failures that white children face and manage to overcome. Our unfainess is not in our race, our color or our stars but in ourselves and the truths or falsities we buy into, and who gets to pay the cost of choosing the wrong paradigm.

      Maybe you don’t get it. Maybe you meant “jive a$$ a mile in dem shoes”. The blacks as a whole have NEVER made an effort to join society. I can name a few exceptions that have done what it takes, what successful whites do, and have themselves, been prosperous. ANY bias based on race, in either direction is just wrong, and in the end stupid….

      Sadly I was denied a promotion even though I was considered the most qualified, and I WAS told that it was because of my skin color. The ones that made that decision were in the Action Committee, as in “affirmative action”. Seemed that my skin was too “white”, sadly that door swings both ways, but nobody thought that I was being treated unfairly. So I don’t have much sympathy for those who cry that they didn’t get the job due to racism.

      I work for a black owned business that because of their insight into racism, their words not mine, first hire their own. I don’t see a color problem. I would hope to believe people respect education and professionalism no matter it’s color. I do however fined myself looking down on a culture that refuses to assimilate and chooses to remain uneducated. Does that make me a racist? No! I not at fault for their refusal to join main stream America.

      I’m sorry, but I have to disagree with you! I’ve seen people get hired, when there were others who had more experience, skills, and talent, because the corporation received tax credits for hiring someone who was on unemployment, or some welfare program. How’s that for discrimination? I’ve seen many a good white applicant, with years of experience, no criminal record, absolutely nothing adverse in their past, get passed over, for a person of color, because it helped the company meet EEOC requirements. Likewise, when it came to cuts in employees, I’ve seen white employees laid off, even tho’ they were better employees, rather than a person of color who could go crying “discrimination” to the government.

      It appears, that some consider being “equal”, having all the things other people have earned by working hard, saving and spending wisely; without having to lift a finger for it. They want what others work for, without having to put out any effort.

      The race war has already started. The liberal press just isn’t reporting on it.

      Consider these incidents:

      At the Wisconsin State fair, groups of black teens numbering anywhere from 25 to 100 “were targeting anyone who was white or appeared to look white,” and beating them, according to the local police chief. At least 18 people were injured, and 30 have been arrested.
      In Denver, couples leaving restaurants were being attacked by a group of black men with baseball bats.
      A young white man named Carter Strange had his skull fractured by a mob in South Carolina. He was attacked at random while jogging.
      A young white man named Dawid Strucinski was beaten into a coma by a mob in Bayonne, NJ.
      Anna Taylor, Emily Guendelsberger, and Thomas Fitzgerald were beaten to the ground and stomped in separate Philadelphia flash mobs.
      “Every weekend in July,” according to local news, “police have battled large, flash-mob beatings and vandalism” in Greensboro, NC.
      In a mostly-white suburb of Cleveland, witnesses reported large groups of young blacks walking through the streets, “shouting profanities and racial epithets,” and one man was viciously beaten while leaving a restaurant with his wife and friends.
      A young white lady named Shaina Perry was taunted and beaten by a black mob in Milwaukee who remarked “Oh, white girl bleeds a lot.”

    Those who feel guilty for being white remind me of those who feel guilty that their buddies died in combat but they survived. They may feel guilty but they won’t change the situation.

    This nation was supposed to enter a post-racial era with the election of Barack Obama, but we found that he is just the racist-in-chief. He along with the other race hustlers do not want or intend to end racism. If they want to end racism they need to eliminate minority-based organizations such as the NAACP, the United Negro College Fund, the Miss Black America beauty pageant, Black Entertainment Television, government programs such as affirmative action, and stop referring to themselves as “African-Americans” unless they were born in Africa and became naturalized American citizens. But that will never happen because these organizations are too advantageous to minorities.

    The Obama administration has set race relations back by 50-60 years in the U.S. and as a result, in my opinion, Obama has made it extremely difficult for any other black person to be elected president for at least 15-20 years. The man who was supposed to be an intelligent, highly educated Constitutional expert has shown himself to be nothing more than a radical racist.

    Yes, it’s Unfair to be white. You are constantly targeted to Support other Races with your tax dollars and through hiring Quotas. So, wise up Whitey and Remove all your capital from your businesses, Gift it to your Spouse, and fire every minority employee. Replace them with women, a Govt. RECOGNIZED MINORITY. Use their Laws to your advantage cause after all you can, by law, pay women less thereby increasing you profit margin and simultaneously maintaining your ‘Minority Quota’. That should make things more fair, at least for the currently unemployed white women and you white employers as well. I’ll take a swing at the other target (Tax Redistribution) in my next post.

      As much as I want to not hire blacks simply to protest Affirmative Action and to annoy liberals, I can’t find myself denying any person a job if they deserve it.
      I am 59 years old and worked for the Philadelphia Prisons for 15 years and saw the changes come from where they treated all of us fairly, especially when 65% of the guard force was black and they promoted according to civil service test results, then 3 years into the job, a new mayor was elected and he put a racist black man in the top position in the prison system and he immediately began to discriminate against any non black that worked there. I was promoted to sergeant in the 3 years when we had equal rights, but after coming out #1 on the lieutenants test under the new superintendent, I was “Passed Over” for a black candidate who two weeks before the promotional interview was arrested for raping a 13 year old girl. The general orders of the prison stated that if an employee is arrested for any reason he will be suspended then terminated until he/she is found not guilty in a court of law, but this candidate was not suspended nor terminated, instead he was promoted then a year later copped a guilty plea and got probation which forced the prisons to terminate him, but I was never promoted as per civil service regulations and when I took the test again, I came out #1 but in order to get me off the list, they broke me down to guard with trumped up charges which I proved at a civil service hearing where the superintendent was forced to give me my previous rank back and back pay differential for the time that I was demoted. I was so disgusted and knew that they were not going to promote me when I went to the interview I answered all the questions the way they wanted and the last two questions they ask are do you have any questions for us and I asked the deputy superintendent how to spell deputy superintendent since he was employed in the prisons for 18 years and couldn’t pass the sergeants exam but when his brother in law was made superintendent he went from guard to sergeant, lieutenant, captain, deputy warden, warden then deputy superintendent within 3 years provisionally which means he was temperarily given the promotions without taking the civil service exams and since he was on the promotional board, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to lay a dig into his stupidity and his being unqualified to even be sergeant. The final question was if I had any comments to make and I took out five legal note pad pages stapled together so they would drop to the ground for effect and began to talk about the corruption, nepotism and biased administration which left the entire board with their mouths wide opened, I then proceded to tell every one of them one at a time F you and walked out of the interview laughing at all of them.
      A week after the interview I met with another caucasian deputy superintendent and had a pocket tape recorder on where he told me to get hurt and get a disability because the superintendent put a contract out on my life. I asked him how much my life was worth and he stated 2 cartons of cigarettes and a get out of jail free card for the inmate that would kill me. A month later, there was a riot and as I lead the guards into the riot an inmate jumped out of a cell and stabbed me in the heart with a honed bucket handle for which I hit him so hard with a club, the club splintered as well as the inmates skull. I continued to put the riot down and instead of getting a commendation, when I got out of the hospital I found a letter in my home mailbox stating that I had to go to the police station, me thinking it was to charge the inmate who was now permanently drinking out of a straw for the rest of his life when I went to the police station I was Mirandized by a detective and he told me that my superintendent wanted me arrested for using excessive force on the inmate but when I presented my documentation along with my immediate supervisors statements, he said I should have gotten a commendation for my actions and said he cannot and will not charge me which only infuriated the superintendent more, so I fought for and received a disability, so I know what it is like to be screwed over because of color and I do not hold that against any other black man or woman and when I open my business I will still hire who I want to based on their qualifications since it does not feel good to be harrassed or deprived a job based soley on color.

    I don’t know where to start on this one…. But–I’ll try! These people are morons! Full of white guilt they try to help by participating in this stupid project. For those who say that if you’re white you don’t get stopped for being in the ‘wrong neighborhood’ know not what they are saying. Talk to any police officer–they’ll tell you that if you’re white and driving in the ‘wrong’ neighborhood, you’ll get stopped for either being lost and needing assistance, or for suspicion of looking for a place to buy drugs. And for the blacks who claim ‘we wuz slaves’, I’ve never seen one with whip marks or callouses on his hands, but I have seen them with free cell phones, food stamp debit cards, free child care, free food program handouts, etc., all paid for by others (including a heck of a lot of white folk). This victim BS just drives me crazy. If it wasn’t for the slave traders, these dummies might still be chucking spears at their dinner or being ‘cleansed’ by rival tribal warriors in Africa. They need to got over this stuff for God’s sake!

    The facts regarding “Affirmative Action” Failure is once again prominently displayed by Holder and Obama. The reduction of standards within America’s Govt. will cost Taxpayers dearly for the next two generations and more if not corrected. The Backlash will demoralize all Minorities for decades unless conservatives correct the law by establishing Reverse Discrimination provisions to existing Discrimination Statutes. Then again, what incentives are there for such remedies when the Current Regulations allow selective discrimination to continue ? You gotta love ‘unintended consequences’.

    I have an idea: let’s send all of the “African-Americans” back to Africa and leave the United States to the real AMERICANS who don’t need to preface their existence in this country with a reference to another country. You can best believe that none of the “African-Americans” ever want to go live in Africa. While we’re at it, let’s talk about the poor illegal aliens whom Osama hopes will feel obligated to vote for him because he tried to legitimitize their continued existence here: the reason we have so many illegal “Mexican-Americans” is that life is so good in Mexico, right? NOT! This is just more stupid on top of stupid.

Does Obama not know the meaning of ” Illegal ??? ) surely he wants another term because he is not finished ruining America and Illegals voting for him certainly would be a help .

    This makes about as much sense as expecting every white person in this country to take on guilt for slavery. First off, my family wasn’t even in this country when slavery existed…they were toiling away in a country in Europe where eventually they lost everything (including for some of them, their lives) and left with the clothes on their backs. They worked hard, got in line to enter this country legally and got here with pretty much nothing. With hard work and effort they became pretty successful even though many people already in this country didn’t want anything to do with immigrants. So, should I feel guilty because there was slavery…I say NO. Should I feel guilty because I happened to be born into a white family…NO. Should I feel guilty for being a white woman instead of a white man…NO.

    God made me who I am, put me into the family He deemed best, and whatever trials and tribulations I have from that is my cross to bear to get closer to God.

    I’m white. I was born this way. I didn’t choose to be it. The Declaration of Independence states that “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal”. The constitution wants to treat everyone as equal but currently the individuals we’ve elected in to office insist on treating races other than white as underprivileged, victims of their skin color who are consistently treated unfairly. We give advantages to “minorities” so they can be “equal”. Wouldn’t this be unfair to whites? After all, the Constitution disallows it. Why am I being punished for something that happened in the past that none of my ancestors ever did? I don’t deserve this. Constantly being browbeaten because I’m white. Constantly told that I have it better, because I’m white. Nobody ever handed me anything. I was never born with a silver spoon. My family always worked hard for what they have and I have worked very hard for what I have today. It’s not my fault they’re not where they want to be. It’s their own. The only way we can heal is to stop coddling people due to their race. Stop making race an issue. The only race in the United States is the American Citizen.

    Yes, it is unfair to be white! Whites have to pay their more than fair share of taxes! Whites have to be blamed for all the problems of the poor, downtrodden, those that want something for nothing, even though we give to more charities to help ‘the poor and downtrodden’ than the greedy government elitist UNLESS they are using our tax $$ but their personal gifts or so small you would have to get a magnifying glass to find the amount. Also we evil whites have tried to be FAIR to all races but MUST always be politically correct or Jessie and Al will not earn their wealth as they continue to stir the ‘pot of trouble’ to have those poor downtrodden get off their duffs that do not work, watch their high priced tvs and whine and cry that we the ‘unfair whites’ are still bigots and will not share their wealth as they indoctrinate our youth to believe their lies and become the progressives that want to destroy our way of life and our country. Unfair whites how do we live with ourselves? Actually quite well because we work hard, raise our children to do the same, love God, family and are law abiding and try to help others but are sick and tired of the obamas, holders, pelosis, reid’s who want total control as well as the fools that are heading our universities, schools, judicial system, etc.

    Government mandated fairness is amazing and I thought a response I heard from a former plant manager said it all when the federal EOC official told him he had to hire more Blacks:”How many Native Americans do I have to fire to meet my quota because almost all my employees are Native Americans?”.
    If we’d keep our unemployment statistics not by race and age, but by employment skills, we might motivate some of our nation’s minorities to stay in school and learn. When I read that few students in Chicago’s inner city schools can read at grade level, I am forced to wonder whether anyone has been honest in telling them there are few non-agriculture jobs that don’t require speaking and reading proficiency in English.

They made a decision to break our laws (with their small children is tow) and now expect this country to feel sorry for them. NOT!

    I am confused! None of the people expressing outrage look to be the worse for it. Not being identified in any form, being the benefits of the largesse of a public institution whch taxpayers have no choice in supporting through taxes, I would guess tenured academics, teaching assistants, and brainwashed students who know who gives out the grades. Somehow it always bothered me to watch the Dr, Martin Luther King’s speech when his dream dealt with the content of the heart and not the color of the skin. Then I realized what it was, many of the people behind him seemed intent on something quite different, they wanted to extract some sort of retribution and punishment. In the end his message was not the contents of their hearts, he would have to go. They won, but pay lip service to his words. Someday we will judge by the content of the heart, perhaps the guilt mongers will finally find their absolution.

The sad thing is… I’d also like to be identified with my sexuality, but as a heterosexual, I’m not sure that it counts. Maybe one of our politically correct, liberal/progressive trolls could advise me on that issue.

    What a load of horse manure! The truth is I’ve only seen two “white” people in my life; one was a true albino, and the other was as white as chalk due to some kind of cancer treatment.

    This Nation was founded by Caucasian people that asked little of those who wished to immigrate other then they must assimilate into American society. That would be the culture, customs, and traditions of that Caucasian society. There were those who were brought here in slavery by force who for the most part sided with the British during the Revolution until the British were cornered in York Town and running out of food forced these people of color to return to those who had enslaved them. This time of enslaving people was a dark period, as it was with the Native American, in our history. At the end of the Civil War those that had been enslaved were given, as a free people, the right to find a home for themselves anywhere in the world they wished. They were also given the right to assimalate into American society. It’s been 150 years since emancipation and 50 years since civil rights. Those injustices have been corrected. Yet there are those here that have eather formed there own society or refused to give up the culture they left behind. I’m not at fault and feel no guilt for those who have chosen not to assimalate nor am I responcible for the periods in our past that someone today may wish to use as an excuss for there lazyness, lack of education, or inability to achive the sucsess that comes through hard work.

    I graduated from high school in 1951. We were asked to write an essay on Pride vs Prejudice. I didn’t even know there was a problem until it was brought to light. I soon learned that if you tried to express to someone that you were not prejudiced, they thought you were even more so. I also found that I am prejudiced. I don’t like people that misbehave and I like people that behave. I find it easier to like someone who seems to like me. I like people who don’t have a chip on their shoulder and treat others with respect. Have you noticed that up to this point I have not mentioned color and that is the way it should be.

    I think a good way to begin the ending of this race finger pointing, is to stop using races to identify people. If you are trying to identify someone by skin color, that is not all that accurate since skin color can change with all races with more or less sun exposure.
    People should be judged by their deeds. A person should expect to be treated by the way they present themselves to others. People all over the world treat others based on a wide variation of judging factors. Some do not tolerate swearing, drunkenness, sloppiness in dress, cleanliness, impoliteness, etc., as well as other people do. And if someone is being treated unfairly on a frequent basis, and if that group is of a different race, it is not to hard to understand why they may become prejudiced. This occurs among individuals, small groups and/or large groups such as Democrats vs Republicans where all sorts of people exist. There still exists however, those people who want to play the race card and “they”, are more of a problem than the race problem.

    Just how privileged is the young white person that scores high on his or her SAT’s than is declined the right to enter a noteworthy college because the school has to accept a minority with less than scholor scores? How privileged is the young white person that makes the grade and attends that same noteworthy college but receives no assistance from scholorships because he or she is not of color? How privileged is that young white student that does not meet the goals to attend a noteworthy college, but maintained grades that would permit him/her to attend a lesser known minority college, but can not because of the color of skin? Yes, white people are privileged, privileged to pay the higher rates to further thier education. Privileged to strive harder than those of color to achieve thier goals.

    As a Jew, I’m a member of the smallest and perennially favorite oppressed minority for the longest time, almost 6,000 years. The only time you hear the words “Jew” and “oppressed minority” in the same sentence is when the former is performing acts of philanthropy or humanitarianism toward the latter. Two white, Jewish New Yorkers, Andrew Goodman, 20, and Michael Schwerner, 24 were murdered near Philadelphia, in Nashoba County, Mississippi on June 21, 1964 for registering black voters. I’ve not seen evidence of any people “of color” giving so much to help the Jews.

    When I was a kid on the north side of Chicago, I frequently saw people with numbers tattooed on their forearms and later, when my parents moved out to the suburbs to give me “the advantages of a suburban education”, I encountered more antisemitism at Maine Township High School than I did working and going to school in Germany in the early ’70s. Incidentally, Maine Township was the alma mater of La Clinton and the local high school for WASP-y Park Ridge, Illinois. La Clinton who was Ms. Rodham at that time, was a young Republican and two years behind me and I never really noticed her due to her lack of physical attributes that would appeal to a teenage boy.

    Most oppression of minorities is perpetrated by members of the same “oppressed minorities”, regardless of ethnicity. A quick look at the Genocide Chart will demonstrate unequivocally exactly who has been doing what to whom over the last century: http://jpfo.org/filegen-a-m/deathgc.htm.

    In Me-me-mechelle’s master’s thesis from Princeton, she complains about not fitting in because she’s black. I’d say she ended up doing a pretty good job of fitting her fat *** in at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. on the rare occasions she wasn’t flitting around on luxury vacations all over the world on our dime with a larger posse than the Queen of England.

    I note from the comments here that we’re all pretty much on the same page so stop being intimidated by passive-aggressive, race hustling advocates of victimization and stand together and say, “Yes, we are all unrepentant racists, but we don’t discriminate based on race, creed or color. We are all inclusive and diversified in our racism. We discriminate against the entire human race for having so much time to evolve, but falling so far short of your potential. We discriminate against stupidity, sloth, lack of responsibility, cowardice, bullying and lying. We don’t care where you’re from, what color you are, what language you speak or what god you worship. If you’re a freeloading, lying piece of **** you can be as white as the riven snow and we promise to discriminate against you. Count on it!”

    I do admire one hyphenated American though and that’s Charlize Theron who is indisputably an African-American having been born in South Africa and becoming a U. S. citizen. Everyone else living here is either an American or welcome to go back to the place to the left of the hyphen.
    Try dropping that at your next politically mixed cocktail party; “Oh yes, I admire the progress made by African-Americans, particularly Charlize Theron.” First you’ll get a blank stare and then you’ll probably hear, “Well yes, but she’s “South” African. So a South African isn’t an African-American, but a Kenyan, Jamaican, Caribbean, Togolese, Brooklynite, Chicagoan, etc. who happens to be long on melanin suddenly finds themselves African. Horse puckey!

    I saw this yesterday and almost blew a gasket.
    How incredibly stupid. If they actually thought this would have some “positive” impact they were 180 degrees off target.
    It’s actually made me more frustrated, and resentful because the majority of these so-called privileges are held by non Whites.
    Complete bullsh*t!

    Senator Jim Webb wrote an article in The Wall Street Journal about the American dream that shocked many since it came from this Democrat. The American Dream was that children would do better than their parents. But according to Webb this has changed.
    Affirmative Action was to be for Blacks and rightly so because of slavery. However, it has come to be applied to any non white. As a result whites are at the back of the line. New immigrants to this country have the advantage over whites whose families have been citizens for generations. Who is living the American Dream these days? First generations to this country.

    EI duPont made its entire IS department spend four days in the country club while they made us feel guilty for being white. They desired us to celebrate homosexuality. This was 20 years ago

    we were progressing pretty good the past 40 or more years in race relations, till obama came along. thought he would be the uniter….and the opposite is what has happened. talk about a step back….like a generation. shame. he held such potential to unite and instead chose the dark side. martin luther king would be so ashamed

    The platform of the CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS AND OBAMA IS to tell black people they cannot do anything, they are cripples and they need them. WAKE UP BLACK AMERICA, you will look like the Native American Indian with all this government help

    I think I get it. Remember following the 2008 election when a multitude of talking heads on the news claimed that white people voted for Obama because of guilt? Guilt, according to them, for having had ancestors who were slave owners. As my ancestors were all northerners and farmers, I didn’t have to worry much about that. I voted against Obama, not according to his skin but in concern about his politics. I’m even more concerned today. Frightened, even.

    So now they want us to be guilty for being white. God made me as I am, just as he made them, and I can’t change it, even if I wanted to. Don’t try to guilt me–I’m not having any of it.

    P.S. Was that Magic Marker? Wonder if it came off . . . .

    When I completed my CENSUS in 2010 – I refused to check mark anythig in the “Race” catagory. I just wrote in, AMERICAN! It made me start wondering exactly when and where those little boxes first appeared – hummm . . . probably some government form? So, what happens when we all REFUSE to fill in that box – on ANY form? This is a game designed to put us into catagories and pit us against each other.

      I didn’t even participate in the 2000 census and 2010 I told the first person that represented one of the 4 gazillion jobs Barry “created or saved” that I wasn’t interested in participating, I told the next one the same thing and I finally told the third one that two adults lived at this address just to deprive the following hordes of census takers the ability to get even more of my tax dollars. He asked me if I wanted to tell him anything else and I said, “Yes, goodbye”.

      When I applied for a re-fi on my house this past year, the person I was working with checked the box for “Caucasian”, I told her it was none of anybody’s business and it would probably prevent me from getting the mortgage. She wouldn’t change it and I didn’t get the mortgage. Were she to have left it blank, I might have had the advantage of being mistaken for one oppressed minority of some flavor or other and gotten the mortgage under the CRA. Now as a self-employed white male who makes his mortgage payments on time, pays all his bills, and appropriate and necessary taxes, I’ve been discriminated against. From what I’ve been reading we are formally a minority so where’s the, if not preferential, at least “fair” treatment.

      Even if we defeat the incumbent, it will take 10-12 years to turn this mess around, but it will never be what it was during Reagan and by the end of the century the country formerly referred to as “the shining city on a hill” will be a fully implemented socialist state. Democracies (yeah, I know, it’s a republic) generally last 200 years before human nature wins out and they turn into nanny states where the populace has their basic needs met and they don’t have to do anything trying, like thinking. See the movie “Idiocracy”–it’s prescient.
