None of this applies to when I was denied tutoring in college for being white (yet still required to pay fees with tuition)., Denied housing in college. Denied loan subsidizes in college. Denied jobs in college, and could not get a job, any job, in college, no matter how hard I tried, and when I DID it was in statistical analysis department which I was "let go" and replaced with a Hispanic person who quit after a few weeks - because I was white. After college could still not a job and had to work for FREE full time for 6+ months just to get relevant work experience to put on my resume. Yes just to get a job nor does it apply to me being turned down for the government job I applied for after college (thank goodness I never got it) nor all the, people, I liaison with in the public sector on a weekly basis as part of my work who clearly got their positions based on their merit and working knowledge... and not their race or ethnicity. Oh yes wink wink. Oh yes.edwardmurphy wrote:Blessed - Better in the traditional sense. If you're you with white skin you'll have an easier time dealing with the police, finding employment or housing, locating a competent barber, and generally moving through life than if you were you with non-white skin.
I would not dare say more on a public forum. Only privately over dinner or some such. But I deal with more than my fair share of people who got their supervisory positions because of their skin color. And breaking news: they aren't white. If you're white or Asian and want to work for government - have fun getting passed over by nincompoops who get paid more while you sit in check.
Even in the private sector the trend is against hiring whites. Even if to protect yourself from claims of discrimination. Interestingly almost all the Asian based companies with offices in Los Angeles use whites almost exclusively in their advertising and marketing - yet do not hire whites and insist on using Asian vendors. Go to Forever 21's corporate offices in Los Angeles (no cameras allowed). You will see hundreds of people in cubicles. Show me one white, black or Hispanic person. I had one lady flat out tell me "we aren't using you for our business because your not Philipino" lol. The trend is against whites in the workplace. If you're not white there are literally thousands of programs to give you a "leg up" over white people.
I cannot stress how hard affirmative action has hit white people and Asians in government.This idea that whites have it better in the workplace is a fantasy.
As far as dealing with the police. I think allot of this is media. I watched this white guy get murdered by the police here:
His "crime" was shoplifting and fleeing. It was bananas after with police detaining the entire building and confiscating peoples phones as "evidence". Interestingly this was the only video (that I know of) to make it out because the gay guy who took it ran out of there afterwards to give it to the channel 4 news media in the park.
Unarmed. Back turned. Running away down the beach stairs. Gunned down by an army of cops. Not one little peep in the news. Nothing. Because .... they didn't find out he was gay until after the fact - so since it was just a white guy, it wasn't liberal media newsworthy. Not one mention in any MSM outlet after this happened. None. It was like it never happened. That really opened my eyes to police being "racist". It's not the police. It's the media showing what they want to show.
My girlfriend (white) and I (white) were also accosted during a traffic stop by a cop (white) drew his gun screaming his head off because.. I would not answer his traffic top questions like "where you heading today" "what do you do for work" "you live close by" "did you know it's illegal to cross a double yellow in California". I just gave him my DL RG and INS then sat quietly with my hands on the wheel (its my 5th amendment right not to say anything) then he starts screaming "what's in that bottle!" "whats in that bottle" (and i did not answer him because in CA you can get arrested for possessing over 2.5 oz container of mace) so pulls his gun screaming "whats in that bottle" and jumps into the car "fearing for his life" screaming don't move because... he saw I had pepper spray in the console and it was a "threat" to him. Screaming like a psycho. I guess he forgot to accidentally shoot me because I'm white right? ha ha ha ha ha
I will say I've learned the hard way if you want a "competent barber" you need to stick with a style that suits you and cut it yourself. I paid hundreds on hairstylists in the best areas of Los Angeles and Las Vegas including Britney Spears former hairstylist at Paris Casino Las Vegas(she provided photos and texts from Britney Spears as proof) trying to get a perfect haircut before I figured out I'm a guy and can cut myself for free with a pair a $20 clippers from Walgreens.
