Re: “If Black Were White and White Were Black — White Privilege in America

Sark, I do know what anecdotal evidence is so don't try to use a bunch of fancy words to make yourself look more appealing. The sky in my little universe is very bright. I am proud to have worked my whole life for myself and see the laziness of most liberals and the left side. You are all the same, you have always expected handouts from everyone and rarely put yourself on the line to get what you want and/or need by working hard. Let's look at "anecdotal evidence" here smart guy. Everyone but white people get government grant money for colleges, small business...and never have to pay back anything because they are minority. Where as, I have seen many of my friends, my wife and family struggle to pay back there student loans they had to get for college because they couldn't qualify for grant money because there parents were in a different tax bracket, even though there parents were not helping them at all with college. Just like Obama, no scholarship, just grant money for these nice degrees he gets to advertise. I am not some racist or extreme right-winger, I just look at the "reality" and life experiences to make my own judgment. I have built multiple successful small business's on hard work and never took a dime from anyone or recieved any loan or grant. I see people everyday on welfare, but driving Denali's and Caddy's all around town with their handicap stickers in there night-slippers while I'm out busting my ass to support my family. I get to see where my tax money is going and it drives me crazy. You should really look at the source of where you are getting your info on studies. I would be willing to bet you look at studies that are extremely bias, just like everything else in the media.

Re: “If Black Were White and White Were Black — White Privilege in America

Exactly, compare these times to Nazi movement, on a different level. My family has seen the rise and fall of great countries in Europe and they are scared to death what Congress and Obama are pushing for in our country because they have lived it on both sides of the fence. "Change" is a word that is being thrown around too casual. I'm not one of these conservatives who screams "Socialism" but damn people, do you see what our country is coming to. White, Black, doesn't matter, everybody is out for themselves regardless of how they come across wanting to get along with the other sides. For all these Obama fans, why is he surrounded by legal controversy all the time? Goldman Sacs which was Obama's biggest contributor to the White House, Birth Certificate...I agree that the Bush's made many piss-poor decisions but every President is surrounded by controversy and nobody ever holds them accountable. When it comes to priveladges, I have a business degree from a fantastic college, my wife has a degree and a master's degree from great colleges and we work hard everyday to support our family and it has been so hard to get any loans for houses and cars because we are white and have some expectation to "make it happen" or "find a way". Why are there no programs out there for everyone in our country, not just blacks, women, hispanics, minority...? My good friend, who is black, and I conducted an experiment at a corporate bank recently. We both went in for the same small business loan the same day, hours apart. Regardless of color on these points, my credit score was better, with 0 debt and more money down, and proven professional experience that was required for the loan and couldn't get qualified...he has worse credit with 0 money to put down and they not only gave him a loan that day, they even gave him government GRANT money for the down payment he does not have to pay back. He realized the priveledges he has as a minority and was shocked at the findings. So you tell me who gets priveldges and who doesn't?
