"THERE AIN'T A WHITE MAN IN THIS ROOM THAT WOULD CHANGE PLACES WITH ME. NONE OF YOU. NONE OF YOU WOULD CHANGE PLACES WITH ME, AND I'M RICH!" | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Sure, there are references to the issue like with Chris Rock quote in the meme I just posted (and I dare anyone to disagree with him on that point, go ahead, I dare ya), but despite living in the Bronx and passing more so-called black and whatever other nicely tanned minorities in a day everyday than most of these whiners here will in a lifetime COMBINED, I've never heard anyone say it other than on social media platforms like this and only by those playing the sadly laughable victim of reverse discrimination card.

Sure, there's probably SJW types pipping it too, and maybe there are some of these boogeyman minorities taking away this sacred white priviledge grumbling it, but I've just never heard the term outside of the artificial realm of the interwebz. Whatever.

Anyways, just my experience. I'm sure someone will post some Mustapha Jackson blognut's diatribe proving that the black man is sticking it to the man causing Mt St Helen's sized eruptions of salted snowflakes to instantly vaporize, but so what. If you really think them dark folks got no historical grievances and disenfranchising societal pressures to complain about, dafuq problem you got? If they should do it, so should you. Unplug it, stop complaining, and take a walk out in the world.

They should think for themselves and not just adopt the religion that their ancestors' slave masters forced onto them. It is the very religion, ironically, that was used to justify slavery in America. Christianity has historically been used to justify actual bondage, and it currently justifies the very self bondage you decried.

I don't think they care enough to worry about whether or not they are enslaved. When you look at the negative progression they made in unemployment (even throughout the Obama years) the percentage per capita imbalance for government entitlements. Not to mention the degradation of inner city schools by way of liberal policy and the never-ending stream of lawsuits levied at school districts by way of the ACLU leading to the kids having far less boundaries than the teachers as well as taking away from teacher salaries leading to good people leaving or never bothering to enter the system.

What about liberal-run areas like Silicon Valley, which has some of the best schools in the state, possibly the country? And what about conservatives who want to literally abolish the Dept of Education and constantly complain about teacher unions? Whenever people complain about "liberal policies" ruining people's lives, they always cherry pick the worst examples and ignore the prosperous ones.

Also, to say that Democrats don't "care enough to worry about whether or not (black people) are enslaved" is just silly.

Nice Silicon valley, where SOOOOOOO many minorities live :) The biggest one-off in the country and you're using it to say i'm being selective about locations when I didn't even offer one as an example? Watch what happens to Seattle ofver the next decade, yet another liberal shining light. Amazon and Starbucks both were threatening to relocate just last week over the proposed 500.00 per head employment tax. Tell me about how great Baltimore is seeing that the city has been liberal run for dacades and sits in THE richest area of the country. Come on brother I know you got better than "silicon valley".
reply
4 ups, 1 reply
I'm not sure if the opening sentence was sarcastic or not :) Silicon Valley has a very high Asian population. I'm from there, I can vouch for this (so can my high school yearbook). My point was that when people slam liberal/Democrat areas, they always pick the ones with the high crime rates like Chicago, Baltimore and New Orleans, while (a) ignoring areas like Silicon Valley that are liberal-run and very prosperous, and (b) ignoring areas that are run by conservatives that aren't doing so well either (usually these tend to be rural areas, but I don't see how the rural/urban difference matters).

I'm ambivalent about the increased min wage in places like Seattle. I think it's somewhat good, but I also know that it will drive prices and rent up. Since people are making more, businesses and apartments will charge more. And employers won't want to hire as many people, because they may not be able to afford to.

Yes, Baltimore is in one of the wealthiest places in the country (being adjacent to D.C.), and it has a huge crime/drug/poverty problem. I acknowledge that.

I'd have to do some research, but I'm guessing there are other urban areas run by Democrats that also show lots of wealth and prosperity, like parts of Houston, LA and Austin.
reply
4 ups, 4 replies
But you still cite one success vs 3 fails even when you try to explain, which suggests to me subconsciously even you know the liberal city model isn't working. Also yes, since you live there you know as well Silicon Valley is a one off. It's not just the minimum wage in Seattle, they went after a 500.00 bounty on the heads of every employee working at the area's largest employers. By the way Baltimore isn't in one of the wealthiest areas of the country, it is in THE WEALTHIEST state in the country. I can tell you right now Houston ain't the utopia you're looking for. It was as bad as Philly and Baltimore when I was running credit apps at Dish.

Obama years? So after a whole decade of nothing the economy just suddenly blossomed because Trump waved his hand?
Goverment fiscal policy is not set daily, it is is set in ADVANCE, as in the year prior. 2017's was set in 2016.
The economy has been growing since the Great RECESSION ended. Just because Obama didn't rave about himself on Twitter every 5 minutes about it doesn't mean it wasn't happening.
The economy is cyclical. We have been in an upswing. You can put a bankruptcy prone moron in Office and it would still be doing well. Oh, wait...

The economy is 70% consumer driven. Fact is, no one in gov't has much effect on it other than the Chairman of the Federal Reserve setting interest rates, affecting money borrowing and thus spending. Deregulation, etc, may have some effect, but witness eventual downturns and those effects seem not so major. Primarily they exacerbate ups and downs, thus spurts are met by harsher dips, over time worsening the overall economic picture, basically in a continous (albiet with bumps) downturn with a shrinking middle class and prospects and increasing poverty.

Translation, whatever Trump himself didn't even claim to do to for 'black' unmeployment didn't happen, unless simply taking credit for something that took you by surprise counts.

Degradation of inner city schools? That's worse than segregation? LIBERAL policy? Like desegragation?
Don't know where teacher salaries are being taken away, or by what/whose policy. Once they have tenure, they've got it made. Parents are less involved, so no one cares.

Maryland is 8th. Gentrification has made parts of Baltimore shiny. Post War flee to suburbia turned inner cities sour, not lib policies.

I realy don't know why NYC - only the center of the planet - is routinely left out of these discussions other than it would end said discussions.

This Dem vs Rep myth is exactly that. Witness the ooh-don't-hurt-my-arm oddly eager compliance of Democrats. I really have no idea why people spout charges without ever thinking that maybe, just maybe, they're right. They, like their Republican pals, are beholden to their corporate sponsors and THEIR interests, not some clueless plebs who think they own them just because they cast a tiny vote. Electoral College, gerrymandering, the Red/Blue State con, etc have rendered voting into little more than an agreement to the status quo with the occasional blip. No matter who's at helm, it's business as usual.

I remember how excited about my 401k I got, the day after Obama took office and the stock market went on year+ long rally. The bonus I received after Obama cut taxes allowed me to buy that new fridge I wanted and my company reinvested it's savings into the new building and I got the promotion I had been waiting years for because now there was room for a new position. I really loved it when Obama rescinded all those executive orders that were holding back economic expansion. Oh wait... none of that happened during the Obama years. Meanwhile during his tenure economists everywhere were asking why the economic recovery was taking so long. I know you don't want to give Trump any credit at all, or Reagan who made the Clinton economy possible by your measure.

I don't believe I said anything about desegregation is your intent to make this about race and suggesting that adding blacks to all schools led to the decay of the education system? I certainly did not. I stated very clearly what I felt led to the degradation of schools. Tenure by nature is a liberal policy no matter who initiated it. Conservatives have long been asking for a merit based system. If you think a teacher has it made you haven't talked to any lately, especially those in the inner city. Your last paragraph... i'm not even going there as there is enough to this conversation already.

Great Recession that was almost a depression, halting the procession of that was one thing, springing out wasn't expected any time soon, but 2012 does seem so forgotten ago.

Bush W, 2nd yr, you got a letter with a check for a whopping $250! YAYA.
Obama H, 2nd yr, you did NOT get a letter to announce a tax rebate of an avg $2500. Yes, $25o0 - that extra "0" wasn't a typo.

Reaganomics sprang then crashed bad - exacerbating the usual contraction. It cost George HW a 2nd term. We were exiting that recession near the end of his term, but like Obama, being a more modest man and growth not at glamming speed yet, unnoticed it went.

Bill/Hill, Republicans in disguise? Did everyone forget that? And yes, he did inherit GWH BUSH'S upswing in the economy, Reagan was gone, Savings & Loans Crisis and other wreckage under repair, tho not totally, as those deregulations, added to by Clintons's & then Bush W's nearly turned 2008 into a depression.

I live in the Bronx. I'm related to teachers. One of my best buds from HS that I stayed in contact long after college also worked for the Board of Ed, as well as a couple of other people in the building I used to live at across from MS 45... Granted, We didn't talk paychecks, but they weren't dirt poor. Main problem was unruly ghetto rat students.

You know who else taught in the Big Bad Boogie Down? The infamous 'Columbine Teacher' who lost her measly $64,000 p/yr gig after 10yrs. Not as much as they pay in Canada, but double what I thought they made here.
My cousin and a close family friend retired from theirs in their 50s with sweet pensions & bonus inducement to retire early.

Segregation was in comparison, and reminding of a lovely conservative policy.

Again, economy is 70% consumer driven. Before the Great Recession, folks were redoing kitchen every 2 yrs, buying, flipping houses, investing in Fla condos, etc. Did they all run out of money simultaneously? No, rumor spread that all these morons overspent on real estate and on the hot potato toxic assets derivatives pyramid scheme, and they decided soon to be maxed out credit card #8 was one too many, so they decided to stop paying and everything crashed. It didn't have to, but there was no Reagan to Trump to tell the brainless minions to keep throwing their borrowed money away pretending it was theirs and they were rich.

In other words, image vs reality goes a long way. Just ask cowboy Ron about Lebanon.

no Reagan or* Trump to tell

As for my last paragraph, Hillary won more votes, yes? If it wasn't for the disaster that is the dismantling of the USA, I'd think that'd make Trump a worthy win, shooing her away.

Now if we can just get Trumpites to stop hickuping her with dials turned up too 11 so I won't have to wretch at the thought of her constantly too...

But a success is still a success. I just get tired of conservatives (not saying you do this) cherry pick the "bad liberal urban areas" and ignore the areas run by liberals which are doing just fine.

I don't believe that every single liberal policy works, of course not. But I also don't believe that every liberal policy fails. And the same goes for conservative policies as well. Some work, some don't.

This is the first I'm hearing about the $500 thing in Seattle, so I don't know what that is.

Houston certainly isn't a utopia, but I'd rather live there than some other areas (oppressive heat notwithstanding).

This meme has gotten more of a response than most, even if I wanted I just don't have the time to argue. Having traveled the world a few times over (retired military) the only real privilege I have seen is rich vs poor. The poor fall into two main groups, those that hate the rich but demand help and those that love the rich because of the help. The rich fall into two main groups, rich that help to make themselves feel better and rich that help because they want to act like they care. In the end nothing changes, the poor stay poor and the rich stay rich. All the drama about race is missing the forest to look at a tree.

Here are some more facts:
76.9% of Americans are white, and 13.3% are black. There are nearly 5.8 times as many whites as blacks, but only about 1.6 times as many whites as blacks are SNAP recipients.
Of the approximately 43 million people on food stamps, about 17 million are white, and about 11 million are black. That means just over 7% of whites are on food stamps and over 32% of blacks are on foods stamps.

And in case you're thinking of asking if these stats came from Wikipedia, I'll go ahead and provide some links.

The disparity is not from "privilege", but from "discrimination".
This is an important distinction because if you fight discrimination, you are trying to lift people up by removing unfair obstacles.
If you fight privilege, you are trying to drag those that are doing better down for the sake of equalization, but do nothing to improve the situation of those without privilege.

I know that looked really good for your cause in the old Huff-Post. However lets look at real numbers. Pesky little things like per capita mean something to people who want to be honest with numbers. Lets start with per capita of people ever having received snap benefits:
White 15%
Hispanic 22%
Black 31 %

Welfare numbers (not per capita),
White – 38.8% ....... 62% of population
Black – 39.8% ...... 12% of population
Hispanic – 15.7%....18% of population
Asian – 2.4% .......... 5% of population
Other – 3.3%

2016 median household income:
Asian: ......81,431
White:.......65,041
Hispanic:..47,675
Black:.......39,490

I hate to call YOUR genius with numbers into question though.

In my youth, I broke up a very bloody and violent fight between two black men, one had called the other a house, you can guess the second word. Until then, I never knew blacks has a social structure and could be racist. The whites like to pretend their own poor are lower than them and use terms like trailer trash and worse. The only privilege I have ever seen in any group is the rich tend to be full of themselves no matter if they earned it themselves or were born with it. Poor is poor and rich is rich, they act differently, treat other differently and generally the poor do not require a rich white liberal to rescue them.

They're the same thing. You can call it affirmative action all you want, but it's still trying to meet their quota.

Quotas are bad either way, no matter who they think they are helping. However more universities have issues meeting black enrollment quotas than white. Private prep schools it is much harder to get real numbers to work with. When quotas exist it is too easy for either side to blame them, instead of work to find what could be the real reason.

Privilege, particularly white or male
privilege, is hard to see for those of us
who were born with access to power
and resources. It is very visible for
those to whom privilege was not
granted. Furthermore, the subject is
extremely difficult to talk about because
many white people don’t feel powerful or
as if they have privileges others do not.

Why is it that white directors have to completely, change an author's story to appease demands for racial diversity in casting? Why don't "they" just write their own stories, and produce their own movies?

I'm not talking about the simple matter of casting minorities. I mean why do they have to change white characters into black characters, etc. Marvel/Disney has been doing this to a lot of characters.

In "White Messiahs" movies, a white character is made central in a story that they are not. The excuse is that it's for marketing purposes, to appeal to the bigger white audience. But making them always the hero while the 'others' are rendered clueless hapless victims awaiting to be saved by them is a tad...

With what you said, it can seem unnecessary, but at the same time, why not? Can't complain about others complaining about not being treated as equals then tell them to sit back in the back of the bus.
Eddie Murphy ruined many a Disney, etc, classic, but then so did Robin Williams, and then Steve Martin, ugh? I never watch any of those remakes.

I did watch Fury Road and love it, but Hardy is no Mad Max.

I definitely, have to concur that Hollywood is still making black characters the "token black" as they still seem to die early in most movies. And I don't agree with that, but I also, don't agree with making non-black characters Black (Nick Fury, Kingpin, Domino, etc.) Otherwise, it's just like Hip-hop, becoming famous using someone else's hook in your song.

Ahh yes, the fine negro sacrificing himself for the benefit of the massa!

No, movie casting is not like B-Boy Music (Hip Hop & Rap are white media terms). A joke like Eminem promoted for white kidz looking for street cred minus the risk of getting their ass whupped by the big nasty Bubba in da hood, is not the same as a script.

Major Hollywood production companies are publically traded, not privately owned by whites. And since most were started by Jewish people, your logic would dictate than only Jewish people should be in any of them.

They're not "your" movies or companies that the "they" can't be in.
But if you feel blacks impinge on your beloved cartoon characters so much, then go make your own white only flicks.

You're taking my angle, incorrectly. And you're obviously, biased because you're not offering reasons nor solutions to the issue, you're attacking to remain relevant.

I was raised to not be prejudice. I don't discourage minorities in movies, but they should have their own, original characters, not be a regurgitated character who's nationality is suddenly changed for convenience sake.

Reasons? Solutions? It's 2018, segregation is over.

Make your own white only movies then, that solution enough for you, or do you want me to write you a persmission slip?

What planet are you on?

WTF? I don't want white only movies, I just don't want my childhood comic book characters' nationality changed. I don't care if they introduce new characters who are minorities, but don't change established characters' nationality.

You mean like Betty Boop and the Lone Ranger?
Look up who they were originally based on before turning white.

Don't like a movie, don't watch it.

This "the they" crap is idiotic, and this subject is lame.

'I'm not racist, I just want them to go do their own separate thing where I can't see it"

Great comeback! You obviously, got so caught up in your high-blood-pressure-fueled attacks that you neglected the details of my posts. "...Good day, sir"!
