So there is no such thing as racism towards whites? Damn.
User avatar #155 to #8 - brutalfistfuck (01/28/2013) [-]
Exactly. A lot of people don't know that saying that white people don't receive any racism, is racist. In the same way that saying that only black people can say ****** , is also racist.

You're as white as rice-pudding! Does that count as racism?

There is a lot of racism towards white people but it's political incorrect to talk about it so they often don't. In Europe, there's a lot of it, but the Europeans tolerate the things the immigrants say towards them and the politicians just ignores it.

There was a video of a white French girl who said no to going out with a black guy and he and another black guy kicked so that she fell twice. When somebody told that a girl had been kicked for saying no and that the only thing wrong was that she had another skin colour and then the others hit her for only saying no, they said that they'd be gladly to show the video at their homepage, but when it turned out she wasn't black, they didn't want to show it.

The problem I have with the Anti-Racist organisations is that they are only anti-white. They're not real anti-racist, because then they would show all the racism from any colour, but they only show white supermacism. I don't like what the right-wing does either, but I like it a little more because they admit that there is racism, but they focus more on the racism by non-whites. I think that they should show racism from all races, not just whites, but then again, most people would deny that racism towards whites are a big problem or that it is wide spread

I think this is my problem with racism towards white people. It exists, no one ever denied that. But assholes, (who happen to be white) use it as an excuse to completely ignore racism.

And truth be told as a white person, you will never experience the day to day racism to the degree minorities do.

People try so hard to be contrarians. Even when it means sticking to their ******** arguments they know are wrong
#189 to #187 - anonymous (01/29/2013) [-]
And you just don't want to accept that your viewpoint could possibly be wrong.
You say that whites won't experience the day tod ay racism to the degree minorities do. But the majority of minorities don't experience that day-to-day and have laws in their favor. While majorities could easily experience it the same amount as minorities, and must live with racism in laws and universities meant to help minorities - except it's not the 50's and minorities no longer need that.

You claim one side has it worse than the other, but this isn't the ******* 50's. Everyone's got it bad, and majorities aren't allowed to complain while minorities are, skewing the numbers. If you can't even learn that, you've got to deal with a racist bias as well.

>you will never experience the day to day racism to the degree minorities do

Explain imminent action, explain racial scholarships, explain the double standard.

I don't mean to sound like a butthurt whitey (I'm half hispanic), but my problem with dropping the issue of racism towards whites is that our idea of "racism" is only the more brutal violent conflict we hear in history, such as lynch mobs of the early 1900s.

Racism exists for all races, in the same degrees for others, and in attempting to purge it through programs like the ones I've listed, we've only isolated the issue and made it worse.

You complain about an excuse to ignore racism, yet you do the same exact thing in your very comment.

Affirmative action exists to make up for all of the other disadvantages created by racism in society--in other words, to make the playing field level, not to make it skewed.
Obviously, it's not a perfect solution, but it's at least better than doing nothing.
User avatar #192 to #134 - akkere (01/29/2013) [-]
Except it's still racism that's just accepted because the ones who cry it the most get the benefits.
They're not making the playing field by playing it by color, they could play it by economic state, and that would be much more efficient, but placing it by color is no different than what had been done in the 60s, only this time it'd be recognized in the history books as "positive discrimination".
#163 to #134 - anonymous (01/28/2013) [-]
Back when there were disadvantages this would be true, but it's not the ******* 60's anymore.
#45 to #11 - anonymous (01/28/2013) [-]
And then there's people like you who use that as an excuse to ignore racism towards majorities. It's a bigger problem than you think. Some companies don't hire majorities for fear of being racist. Political correctness takes over a major part of the USA.

If you're racist towards a minority, you can get sued and all sorts of fun things. If you're racist against a majority, nothing happens and you can still sue said majority for racism.

We've all got to deal with our unfair share. But minorities can sue over losing a job etc to racism or just because and the company will adhere due to political correctness. With political correctness as is, do you think majorities will get anything out of a lawsuit?

... Whites recieve plenty of racism. The worst is when people claim racism because they don't like the outcome of something.

As an example I managed a small company that for this example we will call "bobs".
While managing bobs I occasionally had to hire on more help (we were growing). Now I had employees from different backgrounds (White, Mexican, African American, Etc.) While going through the hiring process which any manager knows means sorting through 100 people to find 1 good one. During this process I always rejected a lot of people of all ethnicity.

The issue that would arise (not always but it did occur) was the threat of lawsuit due to "racism" (the assumption being i'm racist and that's why I didn't hire them. When in fact the people making these claims were often of poor education with no goals, had criminal records, large tattoos, and 1-2 jobs on record from which they had been fired.

Nothing ever came of these threats because they were completely unfounded but the issue stands. People will cry wolf (cry racism) simply because they don't like your decision. Racial crimes are a big deal and no one wants that put on a record yet people feel it's ok to pull the race card whenever they're unhappy.


If someone wants me to take racism seriously they need to take it seriously as well.

*Note* I'm not saying all people do this, for the most part I met reasonable people who understood when they weren't hired. Also if someone was down on their luck or trying to turn their life around id hire them as long as they were honest about it and didn't attempt to cover it up.

Spend three years in Rosengård and Oslo-øst then come tell me that.

Go to a predominately black school for four years then tell me that.
User avatar #115 to #12 - mahnamesjakers (01/28/2013) [-]
As someone who goes to a predominately black high school I can confirm this. Elementary school was very confusing to me as well since everyone was black and they all made fun of me for being white.
User avatar #14 to #12 - rhetoricalfunny (01/28/2013) [-]
Got to a completely white school for 12 then bitch to me

Went to one for 8, not one incident of racism towards any black students. Point being it's not as much of a one sided issue as people make it.
User avatar #16 to #15 - rhetoricalfunny (01/28/2013) [-]
I never insinuated that it was.
I was saying that while racism exists towards white people, you are likely never going to notice it.

And in that aspect you will never be able to see what it's like for a minority person.

I'd like to point out that I am a First Nations in Canada. And contrary to popular belief, Canadians are racist assholes.

And again, having been the minority in this particular setting, and have had to experience this "unnoticeable" racism towards whites first hand that people like to shrug off as nothing is annoying.
User avatar #20 to #18 - rhetoricalfunny (01/28/2013) [-]
You have experienced outwards racism. How many others can you speak for? Couple thousand maybe? Now compare that to the millions of millions of minorities, who live with it every single day. Then it becomes pointless bitching
#21 to #20 - anonymous (01/28/2013) [-]
I can't speak for other places than the US, having lived in both black and white ghettos, and upper middle class suburbs, racism against minorities is essentially non-existent. Mainly do to the fact anyone who says anything to minorities in any way derogatory is racist. And you can speak for all the people in all minorities?
User avatar #24 to #21 - rhetoricalfunny (01/28/2013) [-]
I really don't feel like doing this right now, and for that I'm just going to leave with you this show of your own stupidity.

"racism against minorities is essentially non-existent."

Reflect you stupid prick. (You're stupid cause you're stupid, not cause you're white)

We call that an anecdote. It is hardly a representation of everything. As my middle school was predominantly black and I generally got along well with everyone. Yeah there were douches, but what school doesn't have douchebags.
#17 to #13 - anonymous (01/28/2013) [-]
It was an anecdote, but the original statement I was replying to said no white person would experience as much day to day racism as a minority, which I know is false based upon actual experience.
User avatar #65 to #9 - schneidend (01/28/2013) [-]
...Why would part of the Racism Against White People graph not fully intersect with the Racism graph? Is some racism against whites somehow not racism? If the point you're clumsily trying to make is that racism against whites is only a small part of racism, isn't that true for all ethnic groups? If racism as a concept is one huge circle, then the racism against each particular group would be a multitude of small circles completely within the boundaries of the larger Racism circle.

I wasn't offended by anything. I was pointing out that it's a poorly done diagram and why.

I was trying to make a joke there saying that "not all racism against white people is even racism," however your point is valid.
