Your Favorite Token Black Chick: el wharrrgarblo: Your Favorite Token Black Chick: You work hard, you're the best, you get the job.

And I think that happens in 90% of hiring instances.

Not in government, police, firefighters, big companies, schools....what else am I forgetting....

So what do you do when two equally qualified people show up for a job and one happens to be another color. You hire the white guy, you're racist, you hire the black guy, you're reverse racist and/or letting someone lesser qualified have a position because of AA regardless if anyone checked said colored guy's credentials.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't seems like to me. We only hear about the instances when that hiring process goes bad. Never when the go right.

/doesn't like AA


There is always one who is more qualified. And if there isn't, hire the guy who you like better. Why would you hire the guy you didn't like the most.

See, I don't really care if a black guy hired another black guy over a white guy. (all other things being equal). I get that people like to be around who they want to be around.

There is nothing racist or wrong about that. People should have the freedom of choice.

Arwydd: When you put on a show of good manners, you are still masking how you really are. (Unless, of course, you really are the perpetually polite type.)

I think you';re confusing civility with hypocrisy.

If you have to stand around saying "I gotta be me!" all the time, perhaps, you've overlooked that nobody much gives a flying f*ck.

When you put people into a common environment on a daily basis, there's a time for letting your hair down and a time for holding courteous behaviour and civility in high regard.

It's not about you. Or them. It's about keeping the work environment civil and the staff focused on a common goal without having to pry Lisa and Rita apart because "that stupid b*tch is a NINERS FAN!" Horses for courses. No rules, no society, we all go live under a bridge, make some stone knives and hunt stray pets for dinner.

Arwydd: bunner: Arwydd: Can you explain, then, what you mean by "core character change"? Because to me, changing how you act is changing how you act. Period.

I think he's talking about "manners".

Check some history books.

It's allegedly a social contract wherein people present and conduct themselves in a manner that is polite, agreeable and bespeaks being raised and educated properly so as to value the well being, sensibilities and dignity of others.

Sounds f*cking stupid to me, duuuuude.

No, you're not. You're displaying you're ability to behave formally.

Completely different that acting and even talking a different way when you are around white people, and then when you are around black people talking different, louder, using differnt terms, acting almost completely different in general. And not to get a job during an interview, on a continual basis.

DROxINxTHExWIND: Slim, I didn't give you enough information about me for you to make the assesment that I have "succeeded despite all odds". The corny name-calling aside, your assumption that I've ever been associated with an Affirmative Action program shines a light on you.

I never said that you were associated with an Affirmative Action program. That has nothing to do with the points I have made.

Your little act is a popoular one nowadays. You're the angry White guy who has been "reverse" discriminated against and you just want all people to be treated equally...as long as you're treated better.

It's not an "act," okay? It's reality and I can prove it. Employers and schools openly acknowledge that this is going on, and I have been explicitly denied access to things like job fairs based on the fact that I am white. And I never said I wanted to be treated better, that is a bald-faced lie, I wanted everyone treated equally according to their merits - period.

You're broke ass is being played like a puppet by the people in power, your people, who have you convinced that all your problems will go away and you'll be financially stable as soon as all the illegals and the blacks stop taking yer jerbs...but you're not a bigot.

What the hell are you talking about? I'm a "puppet" just because I'm against affirmative action? You are the one making outrageously irresponsible and unfair assumptions. I am a libertarian, I sure as shiat didn't form that philosophy by being a puppet of anyone (people have been trying to get me to become more "mainstream" my entire life), and being against racial preference for any group is consistent with that.

You're just an average white Joe whose family has NEVER benefitted from being white in a country that's 70% white and its all everybody else's fault that YOU are a failure. I'm not the one on these threads biatching about "the man" hiring someone because of skin color. Many black people have already dealt with that reality. But now that you think the shoe is on the other foot it's time to go to war, right?

You want me to apologize for not taking part in the Civil Rights Movement which began 40 years before I was born? And you think white people had nothing to do with that?

Dro, your logic is all-around atrocious. You aren't nearly as intelligent as you believe yourself to be. It's just fallacy after fallacy with you, cliche after cliche.

A personal attack in place of an argument is a fallacy. Using one along with a valid argument makes you a dick, but it doesn't make you wrong.

jst3p:
This is a tough one for me. I agree that racism is wrong but at the same time I am sure being white has given me opportunities (via subtle and/or deliberate racism) that people of other races have been denied. Over a lifetime it adds up and I am not sure I would be in the same place with the same effort if I were not white. It is a hard thing to account for. In theory all racism is wrong. In theory there should be no racism.


There are still advantages to being white in this society, especially a white hetero male. The thing is that when you have these advantages, you take them for granted and don't notice them until they are altered or removed.

Sometimes it's trust, as in not being followed when shopping in a store. Sometimes it's a belief in your competence, as in when you are interviewed for a job by another white person. Sometimes it's a more honest deal when another white male tries to sell you a car. When you are used to this treatment, you assume it's that way for everyone, and don't give it a second thought.

Consider the rich woman, born and married into money, who has never gone shopping for groceries at wal-mart or anywhere else, and has never used a debit card or a self-serve checkout scanner. This wealthy person becomes broke, or at least middle class, and has to fend for themselves. This is the situation the current generation of white males finds itself in, a situation most everyone else lives every day.

As long as whites are a majority not just in population, but in business, in government, in power and in control, there will always be more benefits in belonging to that majority, even if one doesn't realize it.

So how how many interviews did you arrive at with an iPod turned up to "f*ck off!", scratching your ass and tossing in the odd "motherf*ker* where and there where they inked your contract before closing time? : )

I am displaying nothing. I am simply sort of fond of the notion that mouthy, snotty, ill bathed and insufferable don't add up to some sort of broad statement of individuality.

Finally. Something to go off of that resembles an explanation.

Acting and talking differently - that is exactly what I was saying! We are talking about the same thing but using different terms!

I'm not sure how you can say a "continual basis" though. Do you follow your black employees home or something? (And again, I would argue that they are acting differently because they no longer have to restrain themselves like they do at work when hanging out with friends or family.)

A few years ago when I was looking for a job, I came across a job posting that stated "Chinese Preferred." My first instinct was it was a language requirement, which would be fine, until I read a few lines down "Must speak Mandarin." I wasn't thrilled, especially since it was on a government job board. Although, in some way the must speak mandarin requirement made me feel a little bit better, because otherwise the job was perfect for me and I would've wondered if I didn't get it because I was white.

baggeryking:
Yes, my point is that at the college/labor market level, it's too late. These programs do have a valid intent, there is a problem, but the programs are remedial rather than promoting true diversity during the formative years.

If our neighborhoods were more diverse generally, rather than separate, many of the notions about what the typical white, black, or other groups tendencies would be displaced by a recognition that these "groups" are made up of individials. The disparites would diminish, over time.


Ya know that sounds good. In fact, last year we had a black family move into my (white, upper middle class) neighborhood and I thought to myself, "Hey! Looks like we are getting some diversity here!" (I'm white btw).

Well, last week, after a string of car thefts and burglaries, my neighbor and I caught the kids of the new family breaking into my neighbor's car for the third time.

This does little to dispel my "preconceived" notions... I won't even go into the reasons as to why my notions were that way in the first place.....people would probably think I was making it up.

Yeah, I'm sure it has nothing to do with hard work and respect for authority. I wish I would have known that I was going to be handed everything in life because of my skin color. I would have done a lot more partying instead of studying and working.


No one is saying that anything will be "handed to you" because you are white, just that being a white male opens more doors for you to go and get what you want for yourself, doors which are controlled by other white males. That's what makes it easier.

Actually, I don't know what's best for anyone except myself, which is why I am a libertarian. I have no idea how other people should run their lives, so I refrain from doing so. I am also sure that I am mistaken about many, many things, and I should rightfully suffer the consequences of those mistakes rather than other people.

That is the way it should be, but try being a private business and telling a black or chinese guy you won't serve him because he's black or whatever he is.

Oh, unless you're black and own a store. Then you can refuse to provide whitey with service and everyone looks the other way.

Quick, quick! Liberals come and tell me it's because of slavery! You know, that thing that no blacks alive were, but for some odd reason it keeps coming up.

I'm farking sick of the liberal hypociricsy. It isn't even funny anymore. The only "right on cue", funny part is the dummy liberals with nothing intelligent to say so they just call troll.

I once found a Craigslist Classified for an African American Perl Script Dev. for an "African American" company...
I wrote them saying, "I am not African American or a Perl Script Dev. HOWEVER; I completely support your Right to hire whomever you want based on any criteria you see fit!" Unfortantely the ad was pulled within 15mins.

The 'splain to me why the 4 year minority students not only have a much higher unemployment rate now (8.4% vs 4.4% for whites in 2009 Link), but will earn less ($13000 less annually that whites) and carry more debt upon graduation (81% vs 64% for whites Link)

Blacks, especially black males, have always had higher rates of unemployment and underemployment, college educated or not. Here is a report which states that the unemployment rate for blacks with a bachelor's is actually higher than whites with an Associates' PDF Link, 6.1% for AA/AS whites vs 7.4% for BA/BS blacks as of april 2009.

You really don't think there's advantages to being a white male in this society?

The argument was not about affluence, the argument was meant to refute Can'tLetYouDoThatStarFox's claim that the college educated blacks in his/her law school class had some sort of magic advantage which made them more employed and employable than whites. The statistics I posted showed this was not the case, and that college educated black people today still had to deal with the same crap in hiring, underemployment and unemployment that non-college educated black people did, only slightly less so.

Check the PDF file. Numbers don't lie.

God, your logic sucks. You spout off some generalized statistics across the entire population and then claim that that "refutes" my claim that within higher educational law, MBA, and doctorate programs individual black candidates have a far easier time finding a job than an individual white candidates? I think you personally need some affirmative action so you can go back to high school and learn basic math and reasoning skills.

steamingpile: DROxINxTHExWIND: Asians were not subjected to 400+ years of systematic discrimination at the hands of white Americans either. Hell, its acceptable for you to bring an Asian home.

You need a history lesson, its never been about race, its always been about who has the money no matter what country they are from, dont forget black leaders sold conquered and their own into slavery.

Just as the conquered lands in europe were made to be slaves, as well as those who first came to the USA which were all white slaves, it wasnt until later that blacks were brought over to the US. And you keep saying 400 years here in america, it wasnt. The very first black slave is mentioned in 1619 with more coming in the late 1600s, black slavery was stopped in 1865 so that means it was almost split 50/50 of white/black in times served as a slave, since in the 1500s slaves outnumbered free men in maryland 10-1, if the first black slave wasnt recorded until 1619 who were all those other slaves? White people, beggars, thieves, petty criminals sent to the states as punishment called indentured servitude(which usually was a death sentence since 70% of them never got released, compared to a 25% black mortality rate in slavery)

Im not discounting the brutality suffered by blacks but they are the only race that seems to think they were greatly wronged and still use it as an excuse, it has happened to all races of people at one time in their history.

Dont trust your history teachers, read for yourself and quit quoting standard white guilt textbooks. If you really gave a shiat about african slavery you would be over there now trying to stop them from selling people into servitude now. But its easier to lay blame rather than find a solution, just ask any politician.


The Islamic Republic of Mauritania (Africa, West Coast) outlawed slavery in 1981. Yemen/ Oman in 1970. The Arabs were/are far, far worse to their slaves than any white man. Which is strange, because Muhammed was a hands-on emancipater.. unlike that lazy Time Lincoln

Bravo to England for at least having the balls to come out and say it. In the US, we have to fill out "voluntary" self-identification questionaires when applying for a job. And they're just for informational and statistical purposes...I swear!

Ouisch: Did they laugh at and talk smack about the white people who applied?

My experience is that everyone who applies is laughed at and talked about behind their backs.

/Or really, in front of their backs.
//Seriously, it makes more sense.

Like fare skinned people more likely to get skin cancer from the sun, etc. You're a farking racist moran if you really believe the "medical community" believes people are really different based on their race

minoridiot: It happens. I'm in the process of hiring someone right now. HR has informed me that the position is subject to an "Affirmative Action Goal", and the only resumes they've sent me have ethnic sounding names. This sort of stuff makes it difficult for me to find the most qualified person for the job.

And HR's actions are blatantly racist. You should tell them!

I don't believe you


But...you CAN find the most qualified within the ranks of the least qualified!

What about the extra bone in the foot?

This exemplifies the worst part of the problem in just one short statement.
Why would you naturally assume that these people with "ethnic sounding names" are automatically less qualified, if that is indeed what you are suggesting? Does their name or their alleged ethnicity make them less qualified as a matter of fact, or is that just your belief, a belief that might make hiring goals a necessity in the first place?

Your Favorite Token Black Chick: After reading the comments. I think I'm the only sane not bitter, not entitled, not whiny, black person here.

This is how typical black people act. Not the nice guy/gal on TV dramas.

Welcome to reality. Go ahead, start making excuses, libs.

NO NO NO NO NO NO this is NOT how typical black people act. This is how that motherfarking shiatstain of a vocal minority that get put on youtube act. You think that's how 'typical' black people act because seemingly the most black people you've been exposed too are the negative ones in the media.

I can guarantee you for every farking n****** you see there are 10,000 normal black people trying to get a job/education in a world where because of that vocal minority they are seen as nothing but n*****.

Its really depressing sometimes being black. All this vitrol attributed to them because a chunk of us delight in perpetuating the stereotype. Blanket statements are cast covering up the good and true and normal black people.


Well said.

Also, I've always thought Jerry Springer should be prosecuted for some sort of civil rights charges. While the Bill Cosby show was focused on showing positive images, the Jerry Springer show focuses entirely on reaffirming our strongly cherished stereotypes about blacks.

Coconice: maachubo: OK, here it is *again*
Ban all non-interracial relationships.
1. Black men can only marry White women.
2. White men can only marry Asian women.
3. Asian men can only marry Latino women.
4. Latino men can only marry Black women.
5. First generation children must marry their opposite. i.e. A Black/White child must marry a Latino/Asian child.
6. Racism is gone in two generations.

All results aside, this is good enough for me.


Word to the wise: they aren't like you think they are. Not since we exported our USA-branded feminazism overseas...

Plenty of white folks on Springer too... or couldn't you see them through your strongly cherished stereotypes?
