"Wilcox County school administrators said they plan to discuss the possibility of hosting a school-sponsored prom in 2014, which would be integrated."

And that will be that.

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.

The fact that they don't want to talk about it is evidence that they KNOW they're in the wrong.  Seriously, WTF.

It's all good, though, because the school system is ready to consider discussing the possibility of maybe having an officially designated integrated prom next year. So these people aren't backward hillbilly racist provincial mouth-breathing slack jawed yokels, they're simply pupae about to emerge at last from their cocoons and burst forth into society as beautiful butterflies.

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."

So he's going with the Dukes of Hazard defense.

"Look, these are just some good ol' boys, never meaning no harm."

This is the farking governor. Don't you dare call republicans racists though.

Coming on a Bicycle: So how do they determine who's white and who's not? Would Lenny Kravitz get in? Barrack Obama?


Lenny Kravitz performs music that enables the white students to stand in a circle, bite their lower lips, and shuffle their feet from side to side in a close approximation of what more ethnic groups refer to as "da beat." Some of the more adventurous boys may even clap their hands and wiggle their upper torsos; one might see a spin or two. This sort of experimentation into body movement is something that should be encouraged, and so yes, Lenny Kravitz would be allowed to attend (but purely in a performance capacity).

Barack Obama? That's a stupid question.

Because blacks are a minority and were underrepresented in Congress.

What happens is the white girls learn the black boys dance better than the white boys and the next thing you know, there will be interracial fornicating on the dance floor between the white girls and black boys.  The black girls turned off by the inferior dancing of the white boys will spurn their advances and be left to do nothing.  In a fit of testosterone rage because they can't get laid at their prom, the white boys will all turn gay and have an orgy in the locker-room.

When I was in college, a friend of mine's grandparents had a lake house that he was allowed to have friends stay at for a weekend.

The group he selected included one of our black friends who was far more responsible and less likely to cause extensive property damage than the rest of us idiots....but his grandparents stated that the community had a "no black allowed" policy that would not be broken.

There was an integrated prom held this year, for the first time ever. But a bunch of students (and their parents, no doubt), chose to do the segregated thing.

This problem has only sprung up since white people can't own black people any more.

We don't have an opportunity to see how cool they can be when they aren't tending to our every whim under fear of pain and death.

The easiest way to have an integrated prom is to return things to the way they used to be and then black people could attend and check coats, shine shoes, and do all those things they were naturally born to do, and as a bonus, get the direction and guidance that they long to have provided for them by white people.

WIN-WIN people!

In that case, Univision is racist because it only caters to people who speak Spanish.

Can you find an article about it? The only ones I've read said they have a whites-only prom, and then a mixed-race prom, meaning everyone including whites and hispanics could attend.

Why even approach them or force them to integrate?  They aren't going to change their minds at this point.  Let them have their "Whites Only" prom and slowly die off in peace.

Just because there are more of a people, don't assume they have any special rights, it is quite the opposite. Scary thing is, in 2040 or whenever whites become the minority, do you think black people and Democrats will be fighting for our rights? Hell no. You might push for white slavery then.

FTFA: "However, this year, a group of students, two white girls and two black girls, became frustrated with the tradition and worked together to organize an integrated prom.

They faced a lot of opposition. "I put up posters for the integrated prom, and we've had people ripping them down at school," one student told a Macon-based T.V. station."

You'd be sorely disappointed.  I've helped at proms of both mostly white and mostly black schools.   Both have the same basic selection of pop/dance music you hear on the local Clear Channel station.  It is always run by a guy with shiatty mp3 on his laptop or ipod.  These shiatty quality digital files (you'd think they could use lossless/flac/whatever) are pumped at the maximum volume via some decrepit pawn shop amps that push way too much noisy music to whatever discount PAs they brought with them.  So the uniform result I always find is not that it the hip hop that makes the music bad but rather the completely trashy way they play any music.

Funny, but I have to disagree.  Seriously, they know racism is wrong or they'd be like the white power groups (KKK, neo-Nazis, etc) and proclaim how proud they are of being white and hating all the other groups.  They would have proudly proclaimed that this was a private party for whites-only because they didn't want to their children to have to sit at the same table as a dirty n-word.

It's a matter of beliefs. It seems the government doesn't consider the belief that tax payer money should go to those who wish to segregate. So the folks that have those frowned upon beliefs have to hold their proms in private. Not talking to reporters who want you to feel bad about your beliefs is wrong.

I think that a lot of public attention SHOULD be focused on ignorant and hateful people like this.

Seriously.  It's 2013.  And you are going to send your kid to a private dance so that they won't dance near someone with black skin.

In 2013.   Not 1953.  2013.

Their racist faces should be plastered all over the place to make it easier for the world to mock them.

Because blacks are a minority and were underrepresented in Congress.

Same reason why there is an NAACP. A NAAWP organization just sounds stupid. What the hell do we white people need to advance? What rights does the majority race in this country need to fight for?

How about equal rights? How many white kids don't get into their college of choice because of the color of their skin? How many political appointees get in because they are black? Why aren't NBA teams racially equal? Where are the fast track programs for white males?

Just because there are more of a people, don't assume they have any special rights, it is quite the opposite. Scary thing is, in 2040 or whenever whites become the minority, do you think black people and Democrats will be fighting for our rights? Hell no. You might push for white slavery then.


Lololol are you for real?

No one is going to change their minds and we are only giving them a pulpit to preach from by letting them speak. Turn your backs on these people and ignore them.

Actually this worked pretty well. If you didn't notice, every one of the racist toolbags didn't want to talk on camera or say anything. These people didn't want attention drawn to them, they're ashamed about it. I find that hilarious.


Yes. I think that is the whole point. You can't force anyone to integrate a private prom, but you can totally shame the asshole parents who perpetrate this bullshiat.

FTFA: "However, this year, a group of students, two white girls and two black girls, became frustrated with the tradition and worked together to organize an integrated prom.

They faced a lot of opposition. "I put up posters for the integrated prom, and we've had people ripping them down at school," one student told a Macon-based T.V. station."


Two thousand frogdamned thirteen and we're still raising kids to get hung up on the fact that someone's skin is a different colour.

Please don't lump rural Georgia in with the rest of the USA.  In all major cities (and most rural areas outside of the south), you'd have (at a minimum) reasonable diversity and tolerance.  It's only in places like Wilcox county that you get this kind of messed-up culture.

I'm proud of the kids who stood up and said "this is bullshiat, I just want to go to prom with all my friends."
 
2013-04-29 09:26:17 AM  

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.


The school not having a prom is part of the reason for this.  Previous articles on this said the private proms started after the school refused to have an integrated prom.   Having one will take away the "well, there's no school one" justification.

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


The "black prom" was open to whites.  Few of the racist crackers wanted to go.  Just FYI.

Please don't get the idea I'm cuttin' on you but here's how it works.
White folks already HAVE their own versions of these organizations and what not.  They just call is "Society".  And in general most folks of color aren't asked to join in this greater "Society".
Oh sure, whites hire non-white police and nurses and what not, whites even let a few in the door to the country club but in general, non-white individuals are kept out.
to digress for a moment-
In cases where people of color get included in the greater society (as in the country club mentioned above) it could be considered what is called Cultural Hegemony.  In this instance, the dominant culture tells a minority that "if you work hard and keep your nose clean, you may join us".  It keeps people in line without heavy artillery because everyone wants to be a part of the greater society (in theory)
Historically, removing the concept of Cultural Hegemony is what made the Black Panthers so dangerous to the white majority and resulted in the demonization and murders of it's leaders.

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.

Pocket Ninja: It's all good, though, because the school system is ready to consider discussing the possibility of maybe having an officially designated integrated prom next year. So these people aren't backward hillbilly racist provincial mouth-breathing slack jawed yokels, they're simply pupae about to emerge at last from their cocoons and burst forth into society as beautiful butterflies.

They aren't going to die off. They're having kids, and their kids are having kids. They are not going away. Haven't you seen idiocracy?


This right here. Places like this have black families that know the only way their kids survive is to either get them out or to raise them to be subservient and "not stir up trouble".  It also has white families who roll with the power trip because, hey, the south.

Which is their right as long as they are not using tax dollars. People are entitled to their stupidity, it is only how they fund it that should be questioned.

Freedom of association even applies to those you disagree with and should be not only permitted by supposedly vicitimized groups.

We already ave plenty of segragation based on gender and race with things like women only fitness centers, private schools with admissions based predominately on gender and race, women-only steakhouse in Las Vegas, orgainzations where admission is based on religion like Knighs of Columbus, or military service- VFW and American Legion.

Some in the black community even want their own segregated schools

Sadly some tax dollars find their way into this segregation:

The Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders in Ausitn Texas is a girls only school funded by tax dollars but restricts admission to women. No such school exists for boys in the AISD school system.

Canada even uses tax dollars to fund black only schools

Africentric Alternative School caters for students of African and Caribbean descent

/Thinks schools should do away with proms all togther.

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.

Needs a lot more backstory. There has to be a reason. Frankly, no one is that stupid and outwardly racist to make segregated proms without a reason. I've lived in TN all my life, Memphis for 20 of those years. There is so much interracial hate in the air in Memphis that it's hard to breathe. It's not even about race - it's about behavior. If you're black and act white, you'll get treated nearly the same as a white person. Same for white people acting black.

I bet there was an incident at a school-sponsored gathering in the past. Something will racial tension, or threats of it. The culture clash of that many people in one building (In the south, it is two completely different worlds. Northerners couldn't possibly understand) ... There is a constant tension and uneasiness around Memphis, where you wish you could see over your shoulder at all times without turning your head. Around the other race, you have to be extremely careful about what you say or you'll be judged pretty damned fast. At an enormous gathering where everyone is merged together, all it would take is a tiny catalyst to cause an issue that would make national headlines.

People from the real south will know what I'm talking about. This ain't Hart of Dixie.

HMS_Blinkin: ObscureNameHere: So interesting that issues in the USA are either 'black' or 'white'.  I live near Toronto (one of the burbs) and I am trying to picture how such a dance would go at my kids' school.  I think there would 10 kids at each 'segregation'.

"Ok, white kids (including pale Middle Eastern/Arabic) dance this Monday, followed by the black kids (Caribbean and Africa) dance on Tuesday, brown asian kids (Indians, Sikhs, various 'istans') on Wednesday, light asian/oriental kids (Chineses, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese) on Thursday, and you mixed-race types can be on Friday."

Please don't lump rural Georgia in with the rest of the USA.  In all major cities (and most rural areas outside of the south), you'd have (at a minimum) reasonable diversity and tolerance.  It's only in places like Wilcox county that you get this kind of messed-up culture.


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....

Like likes like. It is a scientific principle, but barring "dim rowdy coloreds" from your event is racist. Even if it is private.
Those people are wrong for making such a blanket statement in disallowing a group of people for the color of their skin.
Now if they barred people with pants that are falling off their asses, I could understand that.

I guess I take this kind of sh*t for granted having grown up in the San Francisco Bay Area. Other than Marin, I can't think of anywhere I've been in the last six or seven years that  only had white people there. That this is still a thing in 2013 boggles my fragile little mind.

JPSimonetti: Needs a lot more backstory. There has to be a reason. Frankly, no one is that stupid and outwardly racist to make segregated proms without a reason. I've lived in TN all my life, Memphis for 20 of those years. There is so much interracial hate in the air in Memphis that it's hard to breathe. It's not even about race - it's about behavior. If you're black and act white, you'll get treated nearly the same as a white person. Same for white people acting black.

I bet there was an incident at a school-sponsored gathering in the past. Something will racial tension, or threats of it. The culture clash of that many people in one building (In the south, it is two completely different worlds. Northerners couldn't possibly understand) ... There is a constant tension and uneasiness around Memphis, where you wish you could see over your shoulder at all times without turning your head. Around the other race, you have to be extremely careful about what you say or you'll be judged pretty damned fast. At an enormous gathering where everyone is merged together, all it would take is a tiny catalyst to cause an issue that would make national headlines.

People from the real south will know what I'm talking about. This ain't Hart of Dixie.


You sound pretty...uh...you don't sound like you appreciate other cultures. Your premise is that there's "no way" anyone would be outwardly racist, so it means the black kids must have done something to make the white people want to seperate. Wow. Maybe the "tension" comes from being black and knowing that there are white people who so detest you that they don't want their kids dancing with you? Nahhh, that's probably not it.

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.

To be clear, that's from both sides. There's more black against white hate in Memphis than the other way around. But it breeds a vicious circle.

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.

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.


Not anymore..... the black prom existed because the black kids weren't allowed to attend the "whites only" prom. With the integrated prom there was no need for a black prom anymore.

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.
 
2013-04-29 10:07:49 AM  

duenor: bad taste? Maybe. But this was a private party. They can invite/not invite whatever the hell they want, and I am totally ok with that. You twits complaining are like the annoying dorky kid's mom whose son doesn't get invited to other kids' birthday parties and then demands that the school not allow invitations to such parties to be passed out at school.

Freedom, it's not just for things you approve of


Idiotic behavior gets called idiotic. Also this wasn't just a random private party, it replaced a school event for years. So why are you complaining about people pointing out that bigotry is stupid? Pretty clearly because you endorse it.

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?

Ummmm! Ever hear of the Republican Party. It's kind of the same thing as the NAAWP/Congressional White Caucus. If people want to create these organizations, go ahead. Just remember your freedom to assemble does not protect you from my right to call you out as a racist.


How so? You libs biatch about this a lot, never seen a single credible piece of evidence to support it. You make it up to get votes. Liberals are the ones who really keep minorities down, so who cares more?

There was an all Greek only prom at my school. It was kind of weird since there was only one greek kid. The "prom" was pretty much Stavros Mitsotakis in a tux, spinning around in circles during lunch, screaming how great it is to be greek & how we all sucked. Plus, there was some really good souvlaki. We all thought Stavros was crazy, but now I know how wrong we were.

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 move out of this place to improve yourself, we will help you."

Why do you hate black people in the south so much, that you would willfully trap them in a place that locks them into the cycle of poverty and discrimination?

Congrats on visiting Memphis. Try living in the city for 20 years. You see it every day. Every thing you encounter has a tone of racism. Fat white guy walking past a group of black youths on the street? "Look at dat fat cracka, daamn." If it was a fat black guy, it'd be a nod. If you're a white guy and a black woman accused you of, say, opening your door into her car in a parking lot? 3 black cops show up. Automatically your fault. Then they lie to the insurance company when they call them and say you admitted opening your door into her car." Black guy living next to a white household? Expect to constantly be ignored, shunned, and see them check their car door locks 3 times before going to bed. Then they'll call the police everytime they can hear the slightest bit of music or partying coming from your house. Black student in a classroom with a white teacher? Have fun at that IEP meeting where the teacher hasn't taken the time to learn a damn thing about your kid. THAT is the south. I've seen all these things and hundreds more. Until you've lived it, don't assume you know anything about it.

I'm not over thinking it. That suggests that they had some VALID reason that they didn't speak about with the cameras in their faces. In listing the possible valid reasons, it was suggested that there was probably "an incident" which precluded the decision of the white people to seperate. Well, if the issue was created by white people, they would not feel the need to have their won seperate event. It was obviously being suggested that black people did something to make the white people want a seperate prom. I'm not stupid. Maybe YOU dodn't think about what you were writing, but I sure got it.

Everyone that makes these statements has not been around the 13-25 age group of Memphis for extended periods of time. Pretending it doesn't go both ways is completely laughable. Have a white person (male, female, doesn't matter) come to Memphis city limits and stand on the corner for a few hours and tell me how many black people have walked past you with a jolly "G'evening." compared to how many make a crude remark or ask you for a cigarette/dollar/ride.

The Southern Gentleman played the Graceful "We can discuss this later" card, then followed with the natural, "I'm sorry, I must be going, (and I'll sue)."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.


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.

That is a great history lesson captain obvious, however in America today, those clubs have not stemmed from the fact that they are "excluded" but that they socialize with those like them. Initially of course that is how those groups have formed. Today, that isn't the case. I love how the perception now is that whites are the only exclusive group and somehow because you aren't white and are a "minority" you are happy lovey-dovey friends with everyone else who isn't white right? Oh how naive you are.

fireclown: HotWingConspiracy: 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.

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.


If I had to guess, it's probably something stupid and wasteful like renting it. In their budget, but an insane proposition for anyone that takes a few minutes to think about it.

That makes him a workin' man who wants to get paid. According to the video, he was not aware when he'd been hired that this was an all-white affair. They conclude by pointing out he didn't return to pick them up afterward.

I'm not over thinking it. That suggests that they had some VALID reason that they didn't speak about with the cameras in their faces. In listing the possible valid reasons, it was suggested that there was probably "an incident" which precluded the decision of the white people to seperate. Well, if the issue was created by white people, they would not feel the need to have their won seperate event. It was obviously being suggested that black people did something to make the white people want a seperate prom. I'm not stupid. Maybe YOU dodn't think about what you were writing, but I sure got it.

I think the "event" you are looking for perhaps might be when the Federal Government informed the school way back they had to have a prom that included everyone. Clearly this was an attempt to thwart states rights so they punished the rest of the kids, took the school sponsored event away and made it "private" (re:white)

That's the "tension" you speak of in the past. Being told to quit being racist by the government and instead of looking for understanding started looking for loopholes

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'm not sure who in this tangle of arguments is trying to make what case, but part of the welfare numbers would be influenced by:

http://www.census.gov/compendia/statab/2012/tables/12s0697.pdf
MEDIAN INCOME IN CURRENT DOLLARS BY RACE, 2009

White: $62,545
Black: $38,409

$14,000 a year can buy a lot of groceries. Even this number has a lot of contributing factors behind it, but if your/someone's argument is that white people > black people based on welfare numbers you're oversimplifying.

     It is the 21st century. Any "whites only" "blacks only" event is kinda backwards and kinda racist. That sort of thing really only breeds resentment regardless of who's doing it. I would understand the argument behind black only  events and oranizations if this were maybe 1960 something or earlier, but segregation is clearly not the accepted norm in todays society and to continue something simply because of "Tradition" is essentially an argument for white only events and organization. Hell it almost sounds like the ridiculous argument against gay rights of "well that's how it's always been defined".

Thunderpipes: Mrtraveler01: 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?

Because blacks are a minority and were underrepresented in Congress.

Same reason why there is an NAACP. A NAAWP organization just sounds stupid. What the hell do we white people need to advance? What rights does the majority race in this country need to fight for?

How about equal rights? How many white kids don't get into their college of choice because of the color of their skin? How many political appointees get in because they are black? Why aren't NBA teams racially equal? Where are the fast track programs for white males?

Just because there are more of a people, don't assume they have any special rights, it is quite the opposite. Scary thing is, in 2040 or whenever whites become the minority, do you think black people and Democrats will be fighting for our rights? Hell no. You might push for white slavery then.

Will that make the exclusion list?

So white people having a prom that excluded black people was okay in your eyes until the feds complained, then in your eyes they punished the rest of the kids?  The rest of the kids being those non white kids that were already being punished by already having been excluded.

The reverse is simply to roll up the windows and lock the doors. Call security and have them remove The Negro who appears out of place and possibly has aggressive intentions. Then we'll have a game of squash, then lunch, I think. Mmm'kay?

The whole thing is about power and access to power. The Man doesn't care about the Traditional Black Colleges, the various black fraternities and sororities and social organizations because beyond a very local scope, nobody there has any real power. Very few people in those organizations are gaining access to the Governor's Mansion or the White House, at least not as an immediate consequence of affiliation in Alpha-Kappa-Alpha, Omega-Psi-Phi, or Prince Hall. That might make you a big wheel in the black communities around Homeland, but that's going to be very local and guess what, black only.

On the other hand, if you're playing golf at the fancy-schmancy traditional white-only country club, or the one that was white-only until that became illegal, then you're rubbing elbows with the corporate chiefs, senators, etc. The real money. And so they maintain the "white only" rule by making it so expensive that only the wealthiest non-white can participate, and by the time The Negro has that kind of money he's (a) learned to conduct himself in elite white culture, and (2) has some real money to invest, so he's welcome. And the fact is, it ain't just about color, it's about socio-economic class. Of course, that's all relative too.

Just don't let his son invite the club president's very white daughter to the cotillion. Although it's not an issue, she's been trained to politely decline (though she may still blow him behind the pool house).

JPSimonetti: someonelse: JPSimonetti: There's more black against white hate in Memphis than the other way around.

That's a laughably huge generalization. No matter how much you think you know about Memphis, nobody, not even you, is in a position to make the giant generalization you just pulled out of your a$$.

Everyone that makes these statements has not been around the 13-25 age group of Memphis for extended periods of time. Pretending it doesn't go both ways is completely laughable. Have a white person (male, female, doesn't matter) come to Memphis city limits and stand on the corner for a few hours and tell me how many black people have walked past you with a jolly "G'evening." compared to how many make a crude remark or ask you for a cigarette/dollar/ride. Just do it. You have no idea what you're talking about.


I can tell you're right from the detailed statistical analysis you've offered.

DROxINxTHExWIND: 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.


Won't SOMEBODY think of the white man???


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 group. 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.

It has been my experience that when someone says they didn't get a job or get into school because they're white, the truth is that they didn't get in because they're stupid, ignorant, rude, or otherwise unpleasant, and they're just using their whiteness as an excuse.

No, man. You didn't get the job because you're a f♥cking backwards redneck piece of crap. Being white was possibly the only thing you had going for you in our society, and you still blew it because you're an odious jackass.

Obviously, the only solution is to reinstate Jim Crow laws.

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.

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.

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."

You said that whites-only events were fine as long as they were private events and not public, then you said minorities should stop crying about it because 'they always have blacks-only proms' which is a utter lie.

Then you said you never really saw racism the way you have been threatened with racism by African-Americans.

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.
