So... a white guy in a slum is more privileged than a black millionaire? seems legit | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
reply

The "white privilege" theory is only applicable if they have the same socioeconomic status. For example, a white guy in a slum is less likely to be shot by the police than a black guy in a slum.

Damn. So if we have every white guy in the slum and every black guy as a millionaire, it would balance out?

I never said that. You're trying to create a strawman argument.

I'm saying that if a white man and a black man are on the same social playing field, the white man has a slight advantage simply because of his race. This is because there are more negative stereotypes about black people than white people and we might unconsciously apply them to someone. For example, one might not care about a white guy on the street in shorts and a tank top, but may feel uncomfortable around a black guy wearing the same thing.

In a majority black community it would be the other way around, nobody is going to favor whites over their own brothers and sisters.

Okay, sorry.

Yet, I will say the same could be said to any race to another race. I don't think the case is exclusive to a certain situation. It's only the 'Black and White' thing which has been the most prevalent throughout history, which is the one which brings the most attention. I believe EVERYONE is at least a eensy teensy bit racisist. We, as humans, are wary and afraid of things which aren't like us. It's a thing which, in this day and age, we work against. And I'm not saying to embrace it. Nor to 'check it'. Just know that EVERYONE IS A RACIST TO A CERTAIN EXTENT.

Violent crime is more of an indication of a high poverty rate. Here's governmental crime data showing that crime rates among racial groups is even once poverty is under control.

How much of a problem with police brutality or racial profiling does Elmont have? Has the low crime rate had an impact on the way blacks in the city are treated compared to nearby towns? Genuinely curious. Same question for the town you referenced when you replied to me earlier about gang membership.
reply
0 ups, 1 reply
I'm not sure about those towns specifically, but a racially diverse police force does lower racial profiling and police misconduct.

Read this article for more information: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/monkey-cage/wp/2017/12/05/how-racial-diversity-makes-police-forces-better/?utm_term=.0f508bc2ca95

Most of their data does come from high quality sources with the exception of HuffingtonPost, but the HuffPo article is all data from academic/governmental sources and no further opinion.

Free college. Those who want to better themselves will be able to do so, regardless of their financial situation. Yes, an increase in taxes will be necessary, but it is worth it since everyone will be able to take advantage of it if they choose to do so. A high sales tax on legalized marijuana for recreational use could also help pay for it. Free education has been very successful in European countries so there's no reason why it won't work in the States.
reply
1 up, 1 reply
I don't know enough about this issue in European schools to comment, but I know I've read that US colleges have tended to raise tuition as the government increases financial aid. You'd raise taxes to pay for everyone's free college.. and the schools would again raise tuition, because they know that the government isn't going to stop giving people their free college. They're not going to be risking anything. Raising sales tax on legalized marijuana I feel would drive the market underground again. It's more expensive to buy legally already, more taxes may just be the tipping point to push people away from the dispensaries and rec shops and back to the dealers. Also have some upvotes, it's refreshing to have someone who is willing to try to convince me instead of just calling me a bot.

This article explains Europe's system better than I can: https://www.topuniversities.com/student-info/student-finance/how-much-does-it-cost-study-europe

Just replace each country with the name of a state and "EU" with "US" to get an idea of how it might look over here.

Obviously, free/cheap college will only apply to state universities and community colleges. Private universities will still be able to charge as much as they want. They may be forced to lower their prices since most people will be using the cheaper route.

We have the same policy in California, its not "free college" You still have to buy your books, you still have to qualify as an independent student federally. this is just tuition free for people with lower incomes. Your level is higher than here though. California once offered really free college. Free for four years, free materials. All this is, is waiving class fees. I went to community college on that program here. Two degrees. Got a job there as well tutoring. Polisci . ;)

Asians aren't facing the same problems in the US as African Americans. In fact, they're more likely to be perceived as smart and hard working.

Native Americans are a better example. The schools created to help them were punishing them for using their native language until a few years ago, but you don't hear about that from the media.

so your evidence of racism is that when a minority group works hard and does well in school they're seen as hard working and smart?
reply

That is an example of a "positive stereotype." It does give some a slight advantage, but it can be harmful because not all Asians are super geniuses and don't always live up to expectations placed on them because of their race.
reply

In that light, can it be harmful to whites that some of them don't live up to the expectations placed on them because of their race? Or are you seriously suggesting that despite all being the same species, whites somehow function completely differently than others?

White privilege exists. For example, a recent study sent multiple identical resumes with "white" names (John Smith, etc.) and ethnic names (Tyrone Freeman, etc) to the same company.

So Will Smith, Mike Tyson, Michael Jordan, and Dennis Rodman have white privilege? ffs you people and the way you reach.. When I was growing up, the goal was to STOP focusing on people's ethnicity and focus on their character, but it seems like the modern left can't do anything but push race. Race this, race that. Has it ever occurred to you that you are doing more to separate and divide people in this country than those who just get along?

I'm pointing out that companies are NOT ignoring race in their hiring process. I literally said that companies are discriminating against people based solely on the name of the applicant. Even with identical resumés, John Smith is more likely to get the job than Abdul Mohammad. If race was truly ignored, then the results would be 50/50.

Whoosh. So you really are stupid, thanks for clearing that up. My point is that none of those black men have "ethnic" names. John Smith can literally be any color. A white guy can be named Mohamed. Maybe some companies really do hire based on what your name is on the application, but those companies are even shooting their own racist shit in the foot. Conflating a problem to be bigger than it really is. And seeing as how there are already laws in place to stop it, again.. solutions?

Not only that, they've also done the same but with names none indicative of race. People were called in for interviews only to meet a formally enthusiastic tone replaced with a dismissive one when the applicant turned out to be darker than expected. Same has happened with housing as well. "Sorry, we just gave it to someone esle already" was a common refrain.

Another study utilizing such names but with darker toned folks having better qualifications bore similar results.
