Default Growing up a minority

I'm a white american dude.
Every school I have ever gone to and everywhere that I've lived, white people number maybe 20% max. My university is maybe 20% white people with the majority being black, about 50%.

How come "minorities" who are actually in the majority now, are still entitled to special benefits and privileges that the "majority" (actually the minority now) isn't? My school has a Black Student representative and tons of scholarships given to only black people, academic funding I am unable to apply for due to the color of my skin.

In LA, every court I stepped on to where I didnt know the people, everyone always called me 'white boy' or "whitey". If I was black and everyone just said "hey black kid, give up the rock black kid" that would be considered racist as shit, but "minorities" are allowed by society to say racial slurs and basically given a free pass.


White people in most of the western world are a minority now, a minority that receives no special privileges and no affirmative action. Will affirmative action ever be done away with? All it does is serve to enforce racial separation. I get punished simply because my skin color by not being given a fair chance in jobs due to affirmative action quotas allowing people less qualified then me to get a job due to their skin color. There are several scholarships I can't apply for because of my skin color.

Wasn't the civil rights movement supposed to stop this shit?

Am I supposed to believe you care about equality because I haven't seen that sentiment being evident in your posting. Seems more likely you want equality at the expense of others which is the same thing you are criticizing.

Lol what a clown...



Why don't u get off your a$s and organize an all white civil rights movement? You can even make nifty comic book pamphlets to hand out during your protests.

"We will not stand for this! White is right, we must fight!"

And all kinds of other retarded chants you can come up with

except that is not evident in your post history. In fact the opposite is reflected far more than the above sentiment.

how so?

I think race or gender should not have any bearing in terms of people getting chosen for jobs, or as a requirement to applying for academic scholarships, only merit.

Going by your posts I have a hard time believing you could actually get any kind of scholarship. In other words...you're a ****ing dumb ass.

Black people in the 50s were mocked when they said they wanted equal opportunities and equal rights too. Now white people are getting mocked for wanting the same thing. How ironic. History moves in circles
