i never even said "thats a lie", that was someone else in response to me, please learn to read....ive already stated my sh*t earlier too, and i disagree 100% with you. ANYONE drawing welfare is looked down upon whether they are black/white/mexican etc.

and this article talks about nothing but rich white people with political power...like they represent the entire white population...seriously?
Exactly, and these gullible people want to agree with the article without using half of their brain power, hopefully.

I also sense a lot of self hatred in here. I think a lot of people's opinions in here is not based on how America in general views certain issues but rather how they view these issues themselves or a select few.

Once again, the "few" valid and truthful points discussed in this garbage a.ss article have more to do with class, political clout, and influence than race. Some of the points are outright silly. White priviledge obviously does exist in this country but this is a very sad attempt at trying to highlight such.

As a matter of fact here's another perfect example. My mom and I both have the exact same tint on our cars....my mom can pass for a white woman. She has never been pulled over for her tint being too dark, or never asked/accused of it when pulled over for speeding.......me on the other hand.....pulled over the 4 times in the past 2 months.....not for speeding, for the sole purpose of my tint "appearing too dark". In which 3 of the 4 times I was then asked if I could have my car searched......white privilege.
Maybe she can pass for white but have you also ever thought that there may be some other variables that may have some influence? Like the type or make of car? Your age? s3x? The time you were driving? Where you were driving? How you were driving? Amount of passengers? Any things, besides skin color that caused you to look suspicious.

Not trying to deny totally that this was white priviledge, but you must consider all the variables that may have caused you to get pulled over, not just one. I have tint in my windows, I'm black as hell, drive an 07 Impala. In two years, I've only gotten pulled over once for my tints and thats because I was driving in a neighboorhood in Chi that is drug infested during late night. After the cops saw I was legit they let me go, no ticket no warning.

im not trying to deny that white people have some privileges in this country that minorities do not, but the privileges addressed in this article have to do with the rich, political families of the U.S., not white privileges.

Duba, this sh*t isnt hurting my feelings, its just discouraging that so many people support this article as white privileges while it is really just monetary and political privilege.

so most of you that have a problem with the article agree that there is such a thing?

if so, then why are you upset about anything said in the article? in the context of politics and this race specifically, i think it did a good job of showing the contrast and discrepancies in how america as a whole looks at this election

obama got crucified in the media about his religion, about his EX-pastor, and then....it was an important issue to know his faith, they even took it as far as putting put pictures trying to trick people into thinking that his faith was this or that...as soon as people start to question palin's faith and beliefs, it's no longer a pertinent issue to running the country, lets just stick to the real issues now...THAT is the kind of sh1t, that this article is trying to address

there are more pressing issues, concerning white privilege than the ones presented here, but in relation to this race, i don't see how you can really disagree with anything said....do you honestly believe that if the black equivalent bristol's babies daddy was linked to the obama campaign that it would suddenly be off limits? would he be considered your average all american boy, who likes to drink and "shoot sh1t" or a gun toting thug by the masses?

tell the truth...and then analyze the answer, that's just a glimpse of the overall train of thought when it comes to how america in general sees and interacts with minorities, there is sh1t that obama would not be able to get away with as a black man, he's another n1gga walking on egg shells trying his best not to be too aggressive or offend white folks in anyway because even without motive they are already searching for excuses and rationalizations for their prejudice

man i think you're really missing the point, all you're seeing is somebody laying the blame at your feet, so you get defensive without actually taking a look at what is being said IMO

yes, political and monetary privilege is involved, but who would you say has the upper hand by overwhelming majority when it comes to political and financial standing?

it's about more than what you're cropping it down to be, it's about perception

Our country needs to wake up and realize that we are all human... unfortunately, that will probably never happen. This article is very subjective, and all it does is promote further division among our country. People need to wake the fu*k up!!!

well at leas you're and honest bigot, i'll give you credit for that, but excuse me for not doing "the wave" when the star spangled banner comes on, they used to hang n1ggas to that song, it's not really my "jam" you know?

i'm sure everybody in this country knows that we're humans lol...and as for the article promoting division, what shall we do? be quiet and just hope it goes away? "white privilege" promotes more division between white/black and brown than this article ever will, don't be naive

I msread you saying that's a lie, but by you disagreeing, thats still essentially what you are saying. But again, I have nothing to say to you about race relations...you are from the UK. Thus, you have no standing to discuss relations in the US. Discussion over.

surprised to LEARN this dude is white... but the point remains the same. most blacks are whiners. Why is it that everytime theres an thread in boxden based on racism theres a ton of replies primarily by blacks screaming racism. racism is an excuse for their shortcomings. By the way im not a racist. just real talk

Racism is an excuse for thier short comings? Seriously, most blacks are whiners? Look Im successful I would like to think in life, no I had no ones help besides my family of course, but no silver spoon or any of daddy's money, just alot of support. I understand getting out there and getting whats yours not based on the strength of being black but on the strength of being a man, or vice versa for a woman.

But let me ask you this, am I not supposed to be offended by blatent racism
that I see against my race? I mean first I have to agree it actually DOES EXIST, and it does, from what I have witnessed first hand. No black man who knows our history in this country and truly understands what it was about and how we were looked at, can pretend that he is not bothered by the leash that this country has had and in many cases still has on us. That has nothing to do with getting your own , that has something to do with games and laws used to specifically delay our race back. Some of these plot are not directed towards us directly it just so happens we are the main ones who are affected, but there are other cases where this is just what it is, age old racism.

The average white american is not connected to a black man, not in the way that they dont deal with them, but in the way that once they go home they are not looking at us through equal eyes, I dont blame them, evening news had some thug on there who is black that has k!lled 2 people that day on every 15 minutes. They see us as dangerous and they see as threatning. And I dont care what you say if you see a group of black males, all young with dreads and white tee's coming down the street in your neighborhood, your first impression is tthey are a menance

Why is it that white people on Boxden are always making racist threads with a ton of replies from white people who act as if racism doesn't exsist? These threads are to help racist white people remove the feeling of guilt from their racist actions.

i rarely see someone saying racism doesnt exist, i just see replies that say racism doesnt exist in every aspect of every single situation. half the time on boxden you'd think it does.

"Their" shortcomings?? What is it that all black people supposedly lack? Racism doesn't exists?

So you're Saying when white people slaved, tortured and k!lled black people it wasn't because of racism, but because of black people's "shortcomings" ??????

And seriously, what "excuses" can you find in this article??


And then you end the post w/ "i'm not a racist." Which clearly indicates that you believe racist people exist, but you're not one of them. But @ the same time say that racism is an excuse for "their" shortcomings.

GTFO!!!
