Well, my friend just posted this bulletin on myspace, and I read it. I personally think it's horribly ignorant of the fact that nonwhites are minorities, and have unequal social representation, but what do you think, UG?

Quote by Dumbass Friend
So what? no-one will re-post
this for fear of being called racist

you call me:
"redneck"
"Hillbilly"
"Slaker"
"White Trash"
"Wope"
"Cracker"
"Honkey"
"Whitey"
"Gringo"
"Sage"
and you think it's OK?

But when I call you:
"jungle bunny"
"spear chucker"
"coon"
"wet back"
"jiggaboo"
"porch monkey"
"sand ******"
"rag head"
"towelhead"
"Camel Jockey"
"Gook"
"Spook"
"******"
"KIKE"
"slant eyes"
or "Chink"
you call me a racist.


-You have the United Negro College Fund.

-You have Martin Luther King Day.

-You have Black History Month.

-You have Cesar Chavez Day.

-You have Yom Hashoah

-You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi

-You have the NAACP.

-You have BET.


-If we had WET
(white entertainment television)
...we'd be racist.

-If we had a White Pride Day...
you would call us racist.

-If we had White History Month...
we'd be racist.

-If we had an organization for only
whites to "advance" our lives
...we'd be racist.

-If we had a college fund that only
gave white students scholarships...
you know we'd be racist.

-In the Million Man March,
you believed that you were
marching for your race and rights.
If we marched for our race and rights...
you would call us racist.

-Did you know that some high
school students decided to make
a club for only the white students
because the other ethnicities had them.
they all got sent to court for being
racist but the african-american,
Latino, and Asia clubs
were not even questioned.

-You are proud to be black, brown,
yellow and orange, and you're
not afraid to announce it. But when
we announce our white pride,
you call us racists.


I am white.

and

I am proud.

But, you call me a racist.


Why is it that only whites can be racists?


Now watch, I'll be racist for reposting this

So what? no-one will re-post this for fear of being called racist

if you agree w/ this than repost saying."i'm not RACIST but this is true

People just love to complain. It's a fact of life.

I'm glad I'm white though. God I love being white.
I am the Infantry.
#13
I agree with it. Not all of it, though. Let's just say, I would not post it on a MySpace bulletin.
#14
No. In fact, he is right.
Yesterday I was talking with someone, and to mention someone I said "the black one". Suddenly, apparently I hated blacks.
So I just told him "what's the difference between saying "the blonde", and "the black"?

Stop with the dumb anti racism obsession. The man is black, so to point him, you can say "the black one" just as you can say "the blond one" or "the one with blue eyes".
And I don't have anything against blacks. In fact, I'm now speaking with a black friend over MSN.

Why is he racist? Just curious...

I wouldn't say it's racist per se, but he's whining about being a majority. It's like, y'know why there's no association for the advancement of white people? Because we're already at an advantage compared to blacks and latinos!
#17
He's not a racist, just jealous from the looks of things, and ignorant of all the opportunites and advantage he has from beign white.

Tell him that once his ancestors have suffered slavery and racism, and when he himself is subject to racial prejudice by a majority, he can think about posting it.

It's just one of those copy&paste ones. It has fair points, but a wouldn't say he's a racist.
#20
You see he does have point. It is just accepted that other races are minorities because the white man has had much success in history. Most geographical teritorries were colonized by whites, and the stereotype of a successful, liberating, stronger white race was formed. Not without reason of course. Whites have in fact been more successful in history.

You see what I'm getting at? It's like people will not think bad of a weaker person attacking a stronger person, but they will definitely have negative feelings towards a stronger person attacking a weaker person. Kind of like - "You've been more successful in history why would you keep rubbing it in?"

I actually agree though. In America sometimes the government goes a tad to far for "equality."

It's not racist, and he has a point.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.
#25
Yes it's racist, even if he's right he's still just using it as an excuse to post a bunch of racist terms...tell him to grow up

His bulletins really aren't gonna change the world

#28
Don't really agree with the name calling thing but that's because I've never in any way been a victim of racism for being white, and none of the "anti-white" expressions mean anything at all to me.

I agree with the rest of it though, definitely. If you're proud of being white, then you're a racist.
#29
Your friend is an idiot. Possibly not quite racist but certainly almost as stupid as one.

he may be racist, but most of that isnt. i completely agree with it, a lot of attempts to be non-racist or politically correct, like black history month, or clubs for specific ethnicities, are in their own way racist, especially since whites doing this would be called racist themselves. but its a fine line, you have to remember that whites have been historically racist towards just about everyone else they've ever encountered, and in a lot of places whites form the majority.
if white people lived in a place where they were the minority, they probably could and would form a "white club". they might get called racist, but in that case it wouldn't be.

your friend just needs to think a little more and look at the subject from different angles.

No...its not racist, not in my eyes anyway.
#35
Damn right I agree with that. Everything said there is true.

Then theres the issue about black's caling each other nigger. But as soon as a white calls them a nigger they take it to offence.

He's complaining about not having a TV channel and a couple of public holidays for God's sake.

Do you feel a particular need to call black people ******s? Who cares?

True though.

The other day I tried to access a public swimming pool. Turns out it was reserved for muslims only, so I wasn't allowed in because of my race.

Imagine if it has been the other way round.

"White people only" swimming pool.

Place would have been sued and on the news.

He has a point. I'm hispanic. But there could be a never-ending argument for this type of thing. And both sides have reasoning to some extent. Just leave it how it is.
