Yes you are. When you take rights seriously, you are willing to bear the social costs in order to get the benefits.

The point about the white college fund is not a good one. There is no legislation barring such a fund. It simply hasn't been established. If you'd like to start one, go right ahead. It will be tough to corral donors because of the perceived racist stigma coupled with the peception that, in general, white prospective college students are better off than are, in general, black prospective college students, though that may or may not be the case.
And yes, there is a black history month -- and I believe a hispanic history month as well. Those are ethnic groups that garnered the political clout to have their wishes granted. There isn't an "official" white history month because there are 12 de facto white history months, and any legislator with an intact cerebrum knows that the forwarding of legislation to officially recognize one as such will alienate 100x the constituancy it would please. Again, there is no legislation barring such an official designation. As that type of legislation must originate in the House of Representatives, please feel free to write the Rep. from your particular district.

you know, I cannot stand the Klan, but they do have a point like there being no college fund for white kids because it would be decreed rascist, and it is true, in America right now we have a problem with reverse rascism, I feel like the "equal rights movement" has turned into a "more than white folks rights movement"
and its just despicable, that that has happened, I also hate when I get griped at about the whole slave owning thing, My family never owned slaves, but just because I am white, it is assumed that my family did, wheras it would be ascist for me to assume that every Black person I saw was a criminal.oh well, I now catch more flack because I am a Freemason lol, I was told recently by a black friend that I was in the Klan, because he said that the Masons were Klan members, I told him, No I actually have a IQ above 71, so no,Im exempt from being a Klan Member, and then I asked him about the Prince Halls and were they Klan Members? (Prince Halls are the Black branch of Freemasonry) or I asked him what about all the Integrated Lodges, are their Black Members Klansmen?
Oh well, peeps will be peeps

If you feel that you're being shoved to the side, it would behoove you to be more involved in the political process.

As for your friend who made assumptions about the nature of your organization, it sounds like you did exactly what should have been done: you talked it out like civilized human beings instead of burying your resentment (though maybe you buried a little being as you've brought it up here). That kind of discussion is the only way we move forward.

I'm done. You'll have to work out this country's racial problems on your own. Have an outline on my desk by 8am.

Gee why make the distinction?

Let's see, you quoted me thus:
'I agree with the Klan, at least in part'

...conveniently omitting the remainder of the sentence, which, also conveniently, dispels your implication that I agree with any of the Klan platforms. Fark you.

You quote again:

'Not too long ago, one of Vines' officers had the misfortune arrest a (black)'

While I must thank you for deigning not to rapaciously misquote me, it is of course necessary to point out that the story only makes sense if the violator was black, and so was I obligated to note this fact.

If you happen to be a troll, well, I bit your (shiatty) bait, but your delivery wasn't good (or funny) enough to warrant the time spent. C+

If, on the other hand, your were serious in your accusations, I insist that you never have children.

Do most of you think there is only the KKK? plenty of hate groups in all races. What REALLY adds fuel to the fire is the double standards in this country today. Alot fo black people go around blaming white people for all thier troubles, if they would open thier farkin eyes they would see most white people got it just as bad. I meant goddamn how many people do you know thats rich? I dont know many white black or whatever.

Peeler, you should move to Canada.

It ain't perfect but your definition of America sounds like hell.

Hitler, Mussolini, Farrakhan and Osama all have/had good points (amidst a majority of scare tactics, paranoia and/or religious brainwashing) also but I'm not going to join any of their fan clubs anytime soon.

I'd like to apologize on behalf of all thinking people from the state of WV. (all five of us) We'd like to apologize for Robert C. Byrd. Getting him voted out of office just won't happen. I hate the man personally but Jesus Christ could run against the racist fark and lose. Love the scenery in my state hate most of the people.

I know that nobody is reading this thread anymore, but I was mull over the "white college fund" question and had to post one more time.
While there aren't any "white" college funds (and again, feel free to start one rather than biatch about the absence thereof), there are a multitude of other scholarships that cater to predominantly white constituencies. I went to college with a guy who was on a "Sons of Ireland" (or somesuch) scholarship, and another who was on a Knights of Columbus scholarship. Those seem to me to be more in line with the UNCF as they apply to a shared heritage and/or belief system.
