DROxINxTHExWIND: There are more white people on welfare than black


So ... blacks are NOT disadvantaged?  Or are you just distorting statistics one way only when it suits the purposes of your arguments at any given time.

/yeah, I think I know which one

the money is in the banana stand:
Do you not see the irony in your behavior? The moment someone speaks up on minority groups expressing racist sentiments, it is cast away as silly because of the privileges enjoyed by being white. This anecdote wasn't shared as a means to describe "how hard we have it" but that when it comes to racism, the only time it "counts" is when is a white person is discriminating against a minority ...


Do you see the irony in your asking me to sympathize with the white people who are victims of racism...in a thread about WHITE PEOPLE EXCLUDING BLACK PEOPLE FROM THEIR PROM?

Show me where, in this thread, you've made ANY comments regarding how unfair or stupid the white people were for excludiing others based on race. You've spent the entire thread biathcing about being scared of black people. As if it's OUR fault that you're a pussy. Don't look for comfort from me because you're not going to get it.

Any behavior by the minority groups is thought of as justified, as a reaction to persecution, and they are absolved of all wrong-doing and are given immunity to cast stones without retaliation.

From the beginning of this thread you've been justifying white-only clubs and events, and said that African-Americans are the real racists.


Your reading comprehension is pretty low. I was justifying both white and minority clubs/event. I never claimed that African-Americans are the real racists. I commented that I thought it was funny that the notion is that only whites are racist and any minority group could not possibly be racist. I was also intrigued why you thought this such a big deal when when it is a private social event and this sort of thing happens ALL THE DAMN time and not just whites perpetuating this kind of behavior, however you and others are treating it as if whites are the only ones that do this.

What the fark are you even talking about? "Counts"? Counts to who? Did you report it to anyone on campus?

Sounds like you have it pretty hard.


COUNTS as in you and your buddy laughed at my example of a minority group being racist and at the same time being outraged at the behavior exhibited in the article. You are a hypocrite. I didn't report it to anyone on campus because I didn't farking care especially considering I am damn used to it growing up in the inner-city where my school was 5% white. Yeah, but that doesn't matter to you and others because it doesn't push your agenda forward now does it?

Only a Sith deals in absolutes.

There are more white people than black on welfare. Fact.

There is a relatively high percentage of African-Americans on welfare when considering the total population. Fact.

There has historically been systemaic oppression which had the effect of making a higher percentage of blacks dependent on government assistance. Fact.

All three things can be true. Hope that helped.

So it doesn't count on the internet. Getting hectored by some jackasses doesn't really rate the same as segregated school events for me.


You are a hypocrite.

No, I just find your stories to be rehashed shiat put out by the "just asking questions" set.

I didn't report it to anyone on campus because I didn't farking care especially considering I am damn used to it growing up in the inner-city where my school was 5% white.

Or because it never happened. Sounds like you had it hard though.

Yeah, but that doesn't matter to you and others because it doesn't push your agenda forward now does it?

Indeed, your stories of these endless slights by those dag burned blacks do not matter to me.

For anyone trying to justify this terrible thing by pointing to BET or the NAACP: Stop being awful.


That being said, any group or institution that is "for" one particular ethnic group has no place in 2013 America, no matter how innocent its beginnings. You don't get to have your cake and eat it too. I think it's a testament to how far we've come if we can say "Some of the highest paid and most successful mainstream entertainers are people of color, so you don't need your own channel anymore."

It wasn't a segregated school event. The school does not have a school prom, so the parents raise money and put it on. Just like birthday parties, you can choose who to invite or not invite on any basis you want. I would defend them to do this the same as I would defend any minority group for wanting to have a private event excluding certain or all other races but their own. Why would you want to be a part of a group of organization that doesn't want you there anyways?

It's pretty easy to say that when you are white and privileged and, you know, would have been admitted to the racist prom.

There probably was a black prom, but not because the black people wanted to be separate from the white people. This is what he doesn't understand or wants to conveniently ignore. The reason why there was a black prom is because the black kids that couldn't go to the white prom had two choices, have their own prom, which more than likely was open to whoever wanted to attend, or sit at home.

HotWingConspiracy: the money is in the banana stand: DROxINxTHExWIND: the money is in the banana stand: Singleballtheory: Gotta love the guy in comment section saying they need to be fair and report on all the black parties and clubs that don't want white people there. Because a) I'm sure it's a huge problem for the white community and b) I'm sure the ratio of black only clubs to white only clubs is comparable. I mean just look at all the southern black only golf clubs they've got.
Are you a moron? Black clubs/events/parties are INCREDIBLY prevalent in the South, the thing is nobody really cares. Also, guess what no one really gives a shiat about race but more so culture. Unfortunately the two go hand-in-hand the vast majority of the time. We can't debate culture however because immediately the race card is thrown.
Awwww. All the poor white guy wanted to do was go to the Young Jeezy concert. The "blacks only" sign on the door and the imaginary black people who stood outside chanting "go away white boy" must have scared him away.
Funny you should say that considering I do a lot of business in Higher Education and the ONLY place I have ever felt unsafe or witnessed blatant racism was on the TSU campus where a group of guys said exactly that. It didn't matter that I was helping their campus, I was the only white guy walking around on campus. I have NEVER witnessed the opposite, which people claim is apparently the norm in the South.
LOLOLOL

Lol who are you to tell me that black-only proms don't exist? Kids in my school had one. These are private formals. In addition, yes I did say I have never witnessed blatant racism in such a public place except for the time it was directed towards me by a group of black students on campus. That wasn't to say that minorities are the only ones that exhibit this behavior, but to challenge the notion of how the South is. For the most part, there is no racism of any kind besides your day-to-day social prejudices which are more of a commentary based on culture than race itself.
 
2013-04-29 02:41:48 PM
Yeah how about we remove minorities clubs when you guys don't force us to confirm to your activities?

When you say 'We need to eliminate all those asians/blacks/jewish-oriented clubs', what you are saying is 'You should be absorbed and assimilated into our groups'.


So let's say we eliminate Chabad on Campus and Hillel, who is going to throw something to celebrate Passover or Sukkot? White people? If we eliminate African-American clubs, who is going to celebrate, say, the 30th anniversary of 'The Color Purple'? White people? If we remove all the Asian clubs, who's going to spend some time on weekends doing calculus for fun? White people?

Yeah, not happening.

Bullshiat. That is what you WANT to believe. You want to believe the climate is the same as it was in 1960 and pre-Civil War. Your false conception is that the prom that is mostly black is open to all wanting to attend and a reaction to being shunned from the "white prom". In reality, our Senior Men's formal just happened to end up mostly white because that was the same core group of students that had been together since elementary school and lived together. We had another "Senior Men's" formal which was way less diverse and by invitation only. With the exception of two white girls and one white boy, it was all black. Your ignorance exemplifies what people with limited exposure to the real world actually think.

What kind of bullshiat is this? That is the most ridiculous thing I have read today. White racists don't exist because a black guy said something racist to you one day? And yet, here we have an article about white people excluding blacks but for some reason, you don't take THIS anecdotal evidence to mean that most white people are racist. In fact, you're here arguing the exact opposite. On one hand, ignore the evidence against whites and take your word for it that its an isolated incident. On the other hand, take your negative anecdotes about blacks and assume ALL black people are just like that.

Your issue isn't with black people, its with logic and reason.

The school involved in this story didn't have an official school prom because it would have had to be integrated, so they canceled it. That is a fact. Say what you want, but some people felt strongly enough about things being segregated that the school decided not to have an integrated prom.

I never said white racists don't exist dude. I said the only racism of any kind I myself have ever experienced in such a public place was perpetuated by a group of black students.

The article does not say the school does not offer a prom because it would have to be integrated and therefore decided against it. A lot of schools do not offer proms for a variety of reasons, that doesn't make it racist. If in fact that is the reason why the school does not offer a prom as a loophole, that is a different story. It doesn't say that, so jumping to the conclusion it is a racist conspiracy is asinine

You can't back it up because those don't exist. There are no 'Blacks-only Proms' as you claimed.

Thunderpipes: Racist and dumb.

Curious though, why are black only things still fine? Imagine a Congressional White Caucus? NAAWP?

Until liberal groups practice what they preach, who are they to biatch about anything?


While some very limited number of minority organizations (NOI, Black Panther Party) do preach segregation and racial politics, most minority organizations are meant to support historically and presently oppressed or disenfranchised minority groups.  Most do NOT engage in separatist or oppressive membership.  So, minority groups can biatch up a storm all they want if they have legitimate concerns or interests that impact their members being impacted by majority group detracting from their right to equal opportunities.  A congressional white caucus would only serve to maintain or increase a political majority power structure.  There is no other reason for a congressional white caucus to exist.

In other words, your logic is not logic.  Please hush, now.

Riiiight. So, when you read an article about a whites only prom, your first reaction wasn't to condemn the segregation, it was to find a moral equivalent in order to justify what was happening in the article. "See, black people are bad too, therefore, these white people aren't that bad". Not only is it piss poor logic, its weak to bak away from the point that you spent an entire thread trying to make which is, "blacks are bad too, so vote David Duke".

ongbok: DROxINxTHExWIND: CBS Atlanta News asked Deal about the segregated proms, he said, "I believe anything associated with a school should not have the distinction based on race or gender or any other separation. However, when pressed, he said, "Some of these are just local issues and private issues and not something state government needs to have its finger involved in."

That did not sit well with Warnock. "The idea that these are private issues is really problematic... When the Montgomery bus boycott got started in 1955, that boycott was against a private bus company, and Rosa Parks stood up by not sitting down and said we won't accept segregation, not even on a private bus company, and the rest is history."


Sir, that is a bad analogy. Like it or not, its a private affair. They can have who ever they want there and it shouldn't make you salty because this isn't done by the school system. Leave the bigots to dance with each other

rhythmlessly to bad music while eating food that isn't properly seasoned. Fark do you care? Let them have each other.


I don't know if its been said, but to anyone who says, "no one complains when the blacks have their African-American events," please get some perspective. Look, so-called black events were born out of neccesity because of shiat like this. Racists excluded blacks from their events so we made a black version.

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 say let'em crash!

No, actually his very Boobies was directed to me, where he said they were justified in doing this and how blacks should stop crying about it cause they got all kinds of black-exclusive clubs anyway.

the money is in the banana stand: For the most part, there is no racism of any kind besides your day-to-day social prejudices which are more of a commentary based on culture than race itself.


Sorry, but it may not be as overt these days in your little part of the world, but institutional racism and covert racism runs rampant in the US and all parts of the world.  Overt racism is rampant in many parts of the world, but has been on the retreat here in the US.  You are way too naive if you actually believe otherwise.

My first reaction was to read the article and then come to the conclusion that from the sound of it, it was no different than any other private formal that takes place and not one of blatant racism supported by and allowed by the school. My entire point was that this sort of thing happens all the time and isn't geared towards hurting any group in particular, but just how humans farking work when it comes to socializing, ie - bond with those most like you.

If that was the case why wouldn't any of the parents stop and explain that? Because that wasn't the case and when racist people are put on the spot and explain their actions they all do the same thing, run away.

Oh, you're just playing ignorant. Because no one who is intelligent enough to form a sentence is also so stupid that they can't see the difference between socializing more frequently with people who look like you, versus SPECIFICALLY EXCLUDING people based on how they look.

TotesCrayCray: scottydoesntknow: I'm going to guess that one of the requirements of being "Supreme Overlord of the United States of America" would be knowing the difference between 'succeed' and 'secede'

Autocorrect. It happens.


Not when you know how to spell the word you are attempting to use.

HotWingConspiracy: the money is in the banana stand: DROxINxTHExWIND: the money is in the banana stand: Singleballtheory: Gotta love the guy in comment section saying they need to be fair and report on all the black parties and clubs that don't want white people there. Because a) I'm sure it's a huge problem for the white community and b) I'm sure the ratio of black only clubs to white only clubs is comparable. I mean just look at all the southern black only golf clubs they've got.

Are you a moron? Black clubs/events/parties are INCREDIBLY prevalent in the South, the thing is nobody really cares. Also, guess what no one really gives a shiat about race but more so culture. Unfortunately the two go hand-in-hand the vast majority of the time. We can't debate culture however because immediately the race card is thrown.

Awwww. All the poor white guy wanted to do was go to the Young Jeezy concert. The "blacks only" sign on the door and the imaginary black people who stood outside chanting "go away white boy" must have scared him away.

Funny you should say that considering I do a lot of business in Higher Education and the ONLY place I have ever felt unsafe or witnessed blatant racism was on the TSU campus where a group of guys said exactly that. It didn't matter that I was helping their campus, I was the only white guy walking around on campus. I have NEVER witnessed the opposite, which people claim is apparently the norm in the South.

LOLOLOL

Tell us some more anecdotes about the trials you've faced due to your whiteness.


I got decked and knocked out cold while walking to the restroom at a HS sporting event. The farking hoodrat who did it was laughing with his hoodrat friend about "laying that white boy out".

But only whites can be racist.

What about the poor Labrador Retrievers?

puckrock2000: And I'm sure the fine, upstanding, not-at-all-racist people at Wilcox County High School got permission from and paid the proper licensing fees to the New England Patriots Football Club to use their copyrighted and/or trademarked logo.


Color me one 22-year employee of the US Copyright Office that is getting awfully tired of explaining this distinction.

mekki: CruJones: PainInTheASP: And even if the school does decide to sponsor the event, it won't change anything.  These assholes will still have their own little private circle-jerk paid for by the White Patriot Party. The kids will still hook up with their cousins and pump out genetically inferior Hitler wannabes by the trailer load.

Society's only hope is that genetic defects will eventually cull that herd.

there's also a blacks only prom that white people weren't invited to.  Just FYI.

Both versions deserve their own WTF on the "That's Farked Up" scale. What do they think will happen if they mix? That some how they will cancel each other out like some sort of matter, anti-matter thing. Like if a white person touches a black person or visa versa there will be a big POOF! and nothing?

Forget racist, that's just weird.


in this case it is mostly about the music play list or band, country music or rock vs rap hiphop or gangbanger shhot em up music.

Next year you have two prom sigh up sheets with a list music played only and see who goes to what prom.

Look, there are terrible people of all races. The actions of the stupid kids that did that to you do not excuse anything that anyone else does. If you want to use it as motivation to fuel your racism then go ahead. But, don't get butthurt when folks call you out for being a bigot. Funny that my parents and grandparents, who suffered through REAL, INSTITUTIONALIZED racism are supposed to get over it. Your punk ass got punched in the head one time by a kid who may or may not have been racist and we're suppsoed to build a memorial in your honor. Smh.

italie: At what point do we just rope off sections of the south and just consider them "Living Museums"?


-Hate to break it to you but ALL WHITE PEOPLE ARE RACIST regardless of geographic location or even poltical ideology

"A RACIST: A racist is one who is both privileged and socialized on the basis of race by a white supremacist (racist) system. The term applies to all white people (i.e., people of European descent) living in the United States, regardless of class, gender, religion, culture or sexuality. By this definition, people of color cannot be racists, because as peoples within the U.S. system, they do not have the power to back up their prejudices, hostilities, or acts of discrimination. (This does not deny the existence of such prejudices, hostilities, acts of rage or discrimination.)" - Page 3

"A NON-RACIST: A non-term. The term was created by whites to deny responsibility for systemic racism, to maintain an aura of innocence in the face of racial oppression, and to shift responsibility for that oppression from whites to people of color (called "blaming the victim"). Responsibility for perpetuating and legitimizing a racist system rests both on those who actively maintain it, and on those who refuse to challenge it. Silence is consent." - Page 3

"Have you ever heard a well-meaning white person say, 'I'm not a member of any race except the human race?' What she usually means by this statement is that she doesn't want to perpetuate racial categories by acknowledging that she is white. This is an evasion of responsibility for her participation in a system based on supremacy for white people." - Page 8
