According to this article another race of men is.

Subby, do you really think that the most persecuted group on the planet would be written about in an article published by a major media magazine? Do you not understand what "persecution" truly means? The very fact that the Hazara are being given this sort of spotlight shows they don't hold a candle to white men when it comes to actual persecution.

My guess is Native/First Americans.

I have a feeling that some people may disagree with this article.

You must be new here.

Why escape to farking Syria?  A dictatorship?  Smooth move, Hazara. (yes, I know why, just saying)

The Hazara need to come to the States.  Sure we will call them terrorists, blame them for taking our jerbs, and get pissy when they speak in their own language but we won't, you know, kill them.

LOL.

I would debate this, but I know this is tongue in cheek and it's pretty good.


I'm a white man. Yeah, it's pretty spiffy. I think more people should try it- and if they can't try it, we should treat other people AS IF they were white men, just so they can get a feel for it, for the rest of their lives. Hell, everyone should get to try it.
Especially unattractive women. Nobody cares if they just cured a type of leukemia or lymphoma, what matters for a woman is DO YOU HAVE NICE BOOBS, and if you're 50, well, that's not gonna happen, so you gotta trudge out and cure cancer even though nobody cares. I think they should get a whirl on the White Male Machine. I bet they'd get a kick out of it.

That's not what my wealthy republican uncle says.
 
2013-05-23 11:17:37 AM  
I would look to African nations too, for most persecuted people. The situation in Congo is still bad and things are really heating up in Nigeria. I wouldn't set foot in Somalia or Libya either.
 
2013-05-23 11:17:49 AM  
That can't be true. A Mexican got a scholarship, therefore my life is hell.

Meeh, life's a  biatch, and then you die.
Move along.

Of course not, subby. Everyone around here knows that the most persecuted group is fathers who have to pay child support. Won't anyone weep for the poor child supporting dads?
 
2013-05-23 11:21:18 AM  
Duh. White CHRISTIAN men are the most persecuted.
 
2013-05-23 11:21:24 AM  
But don't you see that my boss being a white male, his boss being a white male, his boss being a white male, and the CEO of my company being a white male is a coincidence, and had no influence on my hiring prospects as a white male, even subconsciously?  It absolutely is entirely my raw talent.

//I'm actually good at my job.  Not sure what I'm trying to say here.

When religion is somehow disposed of and replaced by science and reason, then the world might become a somewhat better place in which to live.

Is it better to be persecuted or the persecutor?

Pocket Ninja always comes up with creative things to say and they aren't serious, just trying to bring humor to the topic.
 
2013-05-23 11:23:03 AM  
So these are like the Jews of the Muslim world?

Well, if they want to be treated well, maybe they shouldn't look and act so different from the citizens of the host country.  Immigrants all around the world constantly take up the victim banner when indigenous people (whose lands they've invaded) don't want to adjust to immigrant culture and have their own social norms already.  I've got a message for them: if you wanted to preserve your own culture and way of doing things, maybe you shouldn't have left your country in the first place.  Next thing you know, people will be wanting to build a Little Hazara on Ground Zero, and all the liberals will bend over backwards.  "Oh, those poor persecuted people!"  Nevermind what they actual do to the real persecuted minority (good white Christians), we'll have to surrender our rights and then it's just another socialist sharia and your wife has to wear a habib.

I'm a white guy sitting in a civil rights class right now (really) so I'm getting a kick out of these responses.

Now I have to pay attention as the brain washing is about to begin.
 
2013-05-23 11:27:12 AM  
The very notion presented in this headline is, itself, a form of persecution against anglo males.
You should really think about your words, more seriously, Submitter.
We aren't even white. Are you suggesting anglo males are blank, like a blank page? Are we white like a cloud, that blocks life giving sunlight while more aggressively dispersing UV rays?
Are we white like a dollop of cool whip, that even when seeming to add sweetness, is really just adding harmful chemicals that cause long term damage?

Oh yeah, huh?

no subbs they are just the group blamed for the worlds woes
 
2013-05-23 11:32:41 AM  
I think a better way to explain this is that the least protected class of people in the US are white men under the age of 40.

Yes, but was that because you were white or because you weren't Catholic? There's layers of discrimination there, and it's possible you were beaten randomly without actual persecution, because I heard Pinoy do that.

offmymeds: When religion is somehow disposed of and replaced by science and reason, then the world might become a somewhat better place in which to live.


Yea except that in 2 of the countries these people fled to they were still the "correct" religion but looked different.

If you truly believe that religion is the problem and not just a convenient thing that people use as a means to categorize and discriminate against others then you know nothing of human nature.

When they can't use religion they will use race.
When they can't use race they will use language.
When they can't use language they will use accents.
When they can't use accents they will use point of origination (where you're from).

Even your little "science & reason" theory would not hold up unless everyone believed in the exact same "science & reason". Otherwise it will simply be the next difference used to define factions within the human race.

nytmare: Reformed Baptist Church of God Reformation of 1879, or Reformed Baptist Church of God Reformation of 1915?


Still one of my favorite jokes.

The Hazara have it really hard. Any ideas on what charities one could swing some $ to?  A reasonable Google search doesn't reveal that many that work especially with Hazara (there's a Mennonite-run education program and a Mongolian scholarship program, for instance), but I know that Hazara assistance must come under the umbrella of some larger charities that work in Pakistan, Afghanistan and the Middle East. Thoughts?

Its funny how true this actually is.  Not that we're discriminated against or anything, just that there are so few of us.  My Grad school class consisted of three male chinese students, two male indian student, four Caucasian women and 1 caucasian male (me).
