I personally feel privileged when it comes to my privileges. They are something not to be taken for granted, something to be thankful for, and generally something that benefits me. Yay me!

As to your comment on earning privilege, I to am in the boat of claiming things like degrees are privileges with my personal definition, which overly simplified as...something that only certain people get over others for whatever reason.

I personally have no qualms with this, although a lot of people are making a big fuss over white privilege lately, either being offended by others saying they're privileged, or whatever people are getting upset over, maybe getting offended that people can't see they are privileged? If white people are privileged somehow then good for them! There's not really an issue to get angry over, whether you are white, not white, privileged or not...Other people having benefits is not a bad thing. So I guess from that viewpoint, people who argue over the topic on either side just look like a couple of geriatrics to me....nothing against them, as they obviously have their reasons but I can't fathom how anyone could possibly care.

There's no reason to feel guilty unless your privilege came as a result of some dirty deed you've done.

Now on the flip side, if there are others who aren't given the opportunity they deserve. That is something worth talking about. The whole "if he was white so and so would have happened" thing is meaningless though. Whatever happened happened, and the issue should not stray to some make believe land to how much better or worse their make believe life would be if they were painted differently. That kind of squabbling accomplishes nothing. It couldn't amount to anything more then a bad example of what not to do when trying to learn, work with people, and problem solve.

I tried to watch that video....I can't really understand it.....Kind of like reality tv. Its just people being repulsive to one another and no actual, well anything. Who is this chick and what does she do? Was this like a monty python argument room or something? I'm kind of confused on what this thread is about...

The radio host believes that black people are bringing much on themselves so he invited that chick who has a reparations site for those who have white guilt. And an argument ensued.

Hmmm, for you to feel guilty about what other people in your race are doing, does that imply kind of a team mentality? Like you are white...you are one of them, so you should feel guilty. I thought we were trying to get over that sort of thing not long ago.

I should probably give more of a #$&^ for one view or the other the way other people are acting but maybe I'm just uneducated and behind the times, or maybe I've been desensitized by it all. Its fascinating how that mentality is changing though.

Ooh here's a good reaction to the video I found on youtube. It explained everything to me, but in an awesome analogy sort of way.

she is the one who made the website, very nasty person, feels the world owes her everything and people don't need to earn for them selves imo. And she tries to use guilt and blame to meet her ends.

These throw back tactics just keep getting weirder. Where does the blame come from at this point? How do these people think? Its almost like a feud mentality

I was talking to a guy the other day about how there is a claim that Federal policy for affirmative action allowed high risk loans to be pushed through because of skin color, significantly contributing to the economic crisis. Now, this guy could not focus on the fact that high risk loans were being pushed through, or on whether or not the statement was valid to begin with. It immediately went towards shifting the blame towards white bankers. Why is blaming one race or the other an issue, when we have real issues, like financially insecure people who can't pay their loans, receiving loans they can't pay for. No, the flipping issue to this guy was whether or not it was the fault of black or white people, without even considering whether the statement was valid in the first place, or its impact on the economy.

Who cares who's fault what is? As if a race can even be at fault. Like I said, this might just all be over my head. I feel like its time people like her come back down to earth though.

I do have one little inkling of theory as to why this happens though.

. For, I suppose decades now, this racial demographic stuff has been broadcasted and people have been studying why certain populations are in whatever state they are. Its been a common statement, that the blacks have high crime rates because they have more criminals, the black demographic has a lot of unemployment and low income because a lot of them aren't willing to work, etc.... Now to me, I've always thought in terms of okay, that makes sense, if people aren't working that explains the coincidental imbalance. Better double check that the law is allowing equality....Okay, yup, that's good, might even be in their favor. Cool, why aren't they rising up?
. Its probably a result of that population (the poor and unemployed) not inheriting competitive work ethic due to the circumstances within their family tree, with whatever events happened in our history, many of which subdued the rise of the chosen population as a whole from rising through the ranks of society for the majority of our nations history. Such can be seen on small scales within all demographics within family units, but this population specifically has a higher probability of the same disadvantage due to their historical heritage.

This explains why women who have been through similar disadvantage in the job market, were able to recover, and are steadily rising, and blacks are not. Because women, are half of the family unit, and have full access to the work ethic of their families, which in majority are doing just fine. Work ethic (I mean whatever is advantageous for a career) and strong financial background is not learned overnight.

Okay, that's a quick summary of my little theory on why we have financial inequality, and it doesn't blame race because blaming race just doesn't seem logical to me, but its not my race being affected. If people say, on a regular basis, well its because blacks (as a statistic population) aren't working hard enough, as true as that is, and as well as you can mean it...if you are black, within the population that is said to not be working, its only human nature to defend "yourself", and so a significant amount of humans within the criticized population will defend themselves. Its quite common with many people, in the act of defending oneself to redirect the blame towards others, and so we have various forms of blame, in some cases being heavily promoted.

What do you think? Care to shoot anything down or elaborate?

Work ethic (I mean whatever is advantageous for a career) and strong financial background is not learned overnight.



Okay, that's a quick summary of my little theory on why we have financial inequality, and it doesn't blame race because blaming race just doesn't seem logical to me, but its not my race being affected. If people say, on a regular basis, well its because blacks (as a statistic population) aren't working hard enough, as true as that is, and as well as you can mean it...if you are black, within the population that is said to not be working, its only human nature to defend "yourself", and so a significant amount of humans within the criticized population will defend themselves. Its quite common with many people, in the act of defending oneself to redirect the blame towards others, and so we have various forms of blame, in some cases being heavily promoted.

What do you think? Care to shoot anything down or elaborate?

yeah that's how I see it as well, if it makes sense it's probably true, those who are seeking reparations are wanting something for nothing, another hand out. And as you stated the loans and programs to add balance have actually hurt far more than helped.

Have you ever seen such a scam? How stupid do the administrators of reparations.me think that people are. Here is a quote from the "Troll Fund," page:

"The Troll Fund
The last thing a troll wants is to be subverted into a kind and generous human being. With that in mind, from now for every negative message received via this site, one dollar will be donated to this site and allocated specifically to those who have expressed a need for financial support.

Hate can buy groceries now.

Ahhhh, the blurring of the lines between friend and foe ... tis poetry.

To add your support and pledge a dollar per troll, please message me using the contact form (subject line: Troll Fund) and I will add your name to a list of site backers."

So they are looking for backers of the troll fund. What's to stop them from trolling themselves to make people pay?

ikr, it's nuts and sadly taking advantage of those kind hearted and soft brained people thinking they are really helping race relations, as far as I know this isn't denounced by the community but should be, very harmful and hateful, it's all about getting something for nothing, best scam I've seen.

That is the funniest thing I've seen in awhile. The White privilege hurting at the beginning with the black kid, helping during the dog beating, and then being taken away from the "jew" at the end was just priceless. :')

I don't watch SP anymore (don't really watch anything but sports and Vikings) but they always have, and still do, bring common sense to hot button issues.

If someone is dumb enough to give money to a troll fund, they deserve to be trolled. There are plenty of ways compassionate people can give to less advantaged people if they really want to.

So true, and what a shame, I know for me personally with all the scams etc I'm very leery of donating. Though I think there are far better and more effective ways to help than just donate.
