Digipr0f69: DROxINxTHExWIND: ongbok: Oh that part got me.

You are right about it being a private affair and they can do what they want. But however that doesn't mean that they exempted from being ridiculed for doing something that is socially unacceptable, disgusting to most people and if it were state sponsored it would be illegal. They even knew it was social unacceptable, that is why none of them wanted to talk to the reporter to even try to defend the event.


I actually think that this should be the big take-away from the entire story. They've already been shamed into seclusion. We don't have to pick unneccessary fights with people who are off trying to do their own thing. They already know their views are not socially acceptable, which is what we've always wanted. We never thought we'd change everybody. Just enough people that these types of clowns could no longer affect policy. So, I say let them go off and have their whites only function. I'm more concerned about the white boys club in the Senate and on the Forbes 500 list.

Thats a good point. All those kids went into it hiding their faces. A sorry way to for a life turning event.

It's true, those poor Bubbas who didn't want to talk to the news crew were nobodies. But it speaks volumes that the governor of the largest state east of the Mississippi, a state that has a shameful history on race issues, refused to make a single positive comment about the students who organized their first integrated prom. Not even a simple "Congratulations" did he utter, as he turned away, looking every bit as uncomfortable and embarrassed as the parents at the segregated prom. Yeah, that is kind of a big farking Deal (pun intended).

Thunderpipes: HotWingConspiracy: Thunderpipes: Why aren't NBA teams racially equal?

I'm guessing you were one of the white people that didn't get to go to college.

Affirmative action. Why good for blacks, bad for whites? So what if Edmund is 5 foot 6 and can't play? He deserves a spot because he is an under represented racial minority. That is what colleges do. I want more people like me in the NBA.


So yeah, to reiterate, I'm guessing you were one of the white people that didn't get to go to college.

Generally you're not this astoundingly stupid, but your need to play a contrarian as far as race issues go really jacks up the stupid and resentfulness.

This year it was one news crew. Next year maybe the same news crew and one more. Maybe next year the question is pressed to the governor before the prom. Just keep on shining the light.

Not as tiring as it is reading bullshiat like your last post. You're so incapable ofseeing black people as human beings that you're talking about migrating them North...because the white people in the south don't like them. Never thought about moving the whites out though. Never crossed your mind. I think I know why that is.
 
2013-04-29 10:40:12 AM  

DROxINxTHExWIND: Elegy: Annnnnnddddd that's bullshiat of the highest order right there. The primary difference between Wilcox county and any given rural county in the north is that Wilcox county is 36.8% black people.

It sure is easy to claim "the north isn't racist" when your average rural county has a vanishingly small population of black people. Of course, lets completely ignore the fact that whites in the north have trapped the blacks in crumbling inner cities in their haste to get away from their friendly neighbors of color - but the north isn't racist at all...

I think the solution here is a federal program to relocate black people to the rural north. I mean, we keep hearing about how the north is a veritable paradise of racial relations. I'm sure the average income and education levels are much higher too. Such a program would do little to reduce the south's population of blacks, but it would do wonders for the north's non-integrated populations. And, objectively, it would be much better for the poor southern black population to help them move to an area that has a high standard of living and a plethora of racial tolerance.. ...


Black people are not wildebeast on a migration. Blacks in the south have just as many roots as the whites and I dare say they have more of a claim to the land because their ancestors actually did the work to build it.


That is both funny, sad, and thought-provoking.  Good line, applicable to any ethnic cleanser as well.

Thunderpipes: How about equal rights?


Black people are still fighting for them.  See:  this article.

How many white kids don't get into their college of choice because of the color of their skin?

Almost none would be my guess, but if a few don't to make room for a black kid I'm ok with that.  Institutional racism still exists, and it existed in force during our parents' lives.

How many political appointees get in because they are black?

Some?  Who cares?

Why aren't NBA teams racially equal?

Because hiring is based on performance, and whites were never brutally discriminated against necessitating special programs to force a level playing field.

Where are the fast track programs for white males?

White males are always fast-tracked.  I certainly was.   It's good to be white.

As for the parents who organized the white's only prom, of course they were angry at being interviewed - roaches don't like it when you turn on the lights.

If I one day becomes Supreme Overlord of the United States of America, I plan to make some needed changes and at the same time troll on a national level. Here's one of my ideas.

The South is allowed to succeed. They can submit their request to do so and may leave 1 year after I come to power. This will give time for people to flee.

There will be 2 conditions.

1 - They are required, annually and forever, to pay tribute to the North States of America consisting of 10% of their GDP.

2 - They're not allowed to have a standing army or defense force (ala Japan). Raising one will be considered an act of war and will give the NSoA consent to forcibly annex the South as a territory with no government representation.

Never thought about moving the whites out though. Never crossed your mind. I think I know why that is.


First off, no one is talking about "moving people out" but you. I specified a voluntary assistance program to encourage disadvantaged black people to move out of the racist hell-hole people assure me is the south. Got it? Voluntary. Financial. Assistance. You want help, we'll provide it.

Second off, such a program would create an imperceptible difference in my day to day life as a southerner. In other words, nothing would change HERE. Blacks make up 30-40% of the total population of many states in the south, and a majority in many geographical areas like Atlanta and the Mississippi delta. There is simply no way to move that many people, even if that is what I proposing (and I'm not).

What it would change (and rapidly) is the demographics of the north, where many counties have less than 1% black people. I would suggest this would put the assertation that "the north isn't racist like the south" to test, and pretty quickly.

Oh, sure, it's fun to sling mud at the south for being racist, but suggest we help people move out of these racist areas (and non-coincidentally into the areas that are predominantly white yet supposedly "non-racist") and you get up arms over it.

Why is that? Perhaps you don't WANT poor blacks from the south as your neighbors? That sounds pretty damn racist to me.

What does 'white' mean? how does one qualify as 'white or is there some sort of genetic testing done prior to admission to the prom?

Will that make the exclusion list?

I mean if Jokag Tsarnaev had been in this HS last year would he have qualified? What about the likes of Halle Berry or even Keanu Reeves who looks kinda white but part Lebanese and Asian?

According to http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_perce...are_on_welfare
http://www.chacha.com/question/what-...2C-or-hispanic

- 29 million people are on welfare
- 39% white: 11,661,000
- 38% black: 11,362,000

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demogra...United_States:
- US population: 313,544,041
- White: 72.4%: 227,005,885
- Black: 12.6%: 39,506,549

Math time!:

Whites: 11.661,000 / 227,005,885 * 100 = 5.13%
Blacks: 11,362,000 / 39,506,549 * 100 = 28.75%

That means the total percentage of all white people in america on welfare is: 5.13%

While the total percentage of all black people in america on welfare is: 28.75%

Let's reduce the population of the US down to 100 people, to simplify things. If there's 100 people, then 72 people are white and 12 people are black.

So if 38% of the whites are on welfare, that equals a little over 27 whites on welfare.
If 39% of the blacks are on welfare, that's a little over 4 blacks on welfare.

So speaking just on those numbers, 27 whites > 4 blacks on welfare.

It doesn't really exist in the degree that you believe it does. From the article, it was a private event. As a private event, the individuals can socialize with whomever they want based on whatever principle they want. This might be shocking to you, but people tend to gravitate towards people who are like them. I can guarantee you that you can go to almost any city and see they have all black proms as well. We had in addition to our prom held by our school a private Senior Men's and Senior Girl's formal. It was predominately white, but not exclusively. There was also a formal that was all black. It's funny because no one cared they had a formal that was all black, but lord help us the backlash we had because some black students felt excluded from our event. We had Quanell X at our freaking school talking about how racist it was that the school was letting such an event happen.

Boo farking hoo, call me when the prom put on by the school is denying students entry based on race.

While there's no law against the poor(which would get some whites), there is one against using race.  That and civil rights along with the concept of disparate impact would have something to do with it.

No offense, but using the "private entity" as a shield in this case just means there is more of a case to end it.

We had Quanell X at our freaking school talking about how racist it was that the school was letting such an event happen.

Boo farking hoo, call me when the prom put on by the school is denying students entry based on race.


Let me guess, the guy who is defending an 'all white' prom as 'a private event' is a white guy?

The irony of you quoting that post and then saying this is just... what the fark.

SuperNinjaToad: What does 'white' mean? how does one qualify as 'white or is there some sort of genetic testing done prior to admission to the prom? I need to know the threshold of 'whiteness' that qualifies to be in the prom. I mean  if someone is 7/8 white is that white enough? What if one grandparent is Cherokee? Will that make the exclusion list?

I mean if Jokag Tsarnaev had been in this HS last year would he have qualified? What about the likes of Halle Berry or even Keanu Reeves who looks kinda white but part Lebanese and Asian?


It's not about the color of your skin, it's about your ethnicity.

If your parents are pure Western European, you could look like you're off a ship from North Africa and it wouldn't matter. If you are really white but you're Jewish, or Arab or Chechn or any other 'non-whites', you're farked and not one of them.

How are you so butthurt over this? You do realize they have ALL black proms and ALL black frats/sororities right? You can pick your friends and social circles based on whatever criteria you see fit.

Tatsuma: Do you think that life on welfare is a life full of HD tvs, great cars and doing nothing all day while you get mad money?


Yes, they think that.

/this is why I NEVER want to live in the south ever farking again
//13 months on the Gulf Coast of MS was enough for me

The North is just as racist, if not more. It's just that most people are more polite and refrain from doing so in public.


I don't know about that. I've lived all around the country and the amount outward racism displayed in MS/AL/LA that I saw led me to believe it was a MUCH larger issue there.

Yes, they think that.


The HD tvs seems pretty much dead on.  I've had friends on various kinds of public assistance for decades, and no matter what kind of subsidized roach motel they might be in, no matter what kind of 15 year old POS they might be driving, and no matter how tight the food budget might be, the TV is almost always great.  I don't know if it's because it's just hard to buy a lousy TV these days, or if it's because if you are at home for that many hours in a day entertainment becomes a higher priority, or what.

girlienerd: DROxINxTHExWIND: Elegy:
But I keep hearing that the south is a hell-hole for blacks, while the north is a paradise of equality an tolerance. We already have federal programs to subsidize housing for poor blacks in the south, which (while well intentioned) has the effect of trapping poor southern blacks in this horribly racist place where they will be disadvantaged for the simple reason of their skin color.

Why not a federally funded program to find black migration to these much more tolerant and open rural communities in the north? Nothing forced - I'm not suggesting a trail of tears - I'm suggesting a program that says "if you want to mo ...


There are more white people on welfare than black. I'd call you racist, but I'm sure its just ignorance.

According to http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_perce...are_on_welfare
http://www.chacha.com/question/what-...2C-or-hispanic

- 29 million people are on welfare
- 39% white: 11,661,000
- 38% black: 11,362,000

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demogra...United_States:
- US population: 313,544,041
- White: 72.4%: 227,005,885
- Black: 12.6%: 39,506,549

Math time!:

Whites: 11.661,000 / 227,005,885 * 100 = 5.13%
Blacks: 11,362,000 / 39,506,549 * 100 = 28.75%

That means the total percentage of all white people in america on welfare is: 5.13%

While the total percentage of all black people in america on welfare is: 28.75%


I see two white people who don't know how to read. Please see the highlighted words.

white: 11,661,000  >  black: 11,362,000

You see, this is how we know you all are racist bags of excrement. By YOUR numbers, there are approximately 300,000 more white people in America recaiving welfare benefits than there are black people. If each one of the additional white people were to get a check for $400/ month, that would be an additional $120 MILLION of YOUR taxes per month that is going to white people. Or, 1.44 BILLION per year. Now, if white people get an additional $1.4 billion from  welfare, what the fark are you talking about black people for? Its because you're an a bigot...or you're not good at math. I suspect its both.

Do you know why all black proms and all black sororities and frats came into existence? It is because black people weren't allowed to join the other frats or sororities or attend the white proms. And let me tell you something else that may shock you, white people or any other ethnicity are welcome to join the black sororities and frats and always have been.

Black clubs, schools and the such did come about because black people wanted to be separate from whites. They came about because white people wouldn't let black people join their groups or go to their schools, so black people formed their own, and invited other ethnicities to participate.

scottydoesntknow: Let's reduce the population of the US down to 100 people, to simplify things. If there's 100 people, then 72 people are white and 12 people are black.

So if 38% of the whites are on welfare, that equals a little over 27 whites on welfare.
If 39% of the blacks are on welfare, that's a little over 4 blacks on welfare.

So speaking just on those numbers, 27 whites > 4 blacks on welfare.


Your perscentages are wrong - 39% of all welfare recipients are white, and 38% are black.  So there's a roughly equal number of whites and blacks on welfare. Unfortunately, that translates into a larger percentage of all blacks that are on welfare.  See girlienerd's breakdown above.  What's not addressed by those numbers is the why - which the national dialogue appears to be unable to address in a practical and logical manner because the agenda-baiters on both sides won't allow it.
