    Of course we are. I remember when we used do rule the roost. Now we are bing overrun with minorities threatening to make us a minority, not to mention all the fer'ners invading. We're the only ones with god-given oppression rights... how-dare-they!!

    No. What colour skin does everyone have in advertising?

    What will the whole thing accomplish?

    I guess I don't understand how someone could perceive themselves (as the majority) to be at a disadvantage. I also wonder if this constant separatism from our fellow peoples will put us at a huge disadvantage later on.

    What's so hard to understand? We have a black man in the White House and there are so many people who hate that. When you hear them deride Obama for socialism or communism, what they really wanted to say was n*****.

    Lol, I hear you. And to that all I can think of is HE IS HALF WHITE :D

    In any case I can't figure out how he got elected if that many people have issue with him.

    I also think it may be an identity issue, which I guess was mentioned in the article.

    That may be true, but he's done everything he can to prove how "black" he is, mainly in order to get elected. Not much different from JFK in the 60's (less Harvard, more Boston).

    The more interesting thing, and this will have to be a wait-and-see, is what happens to all the race-based entitlement programs and whatnot once whites stop being a majority in what used to be their own country.

    No. You can speculate about the future, but not currently in the U.S.A.

    I think we are nearing a point of equilibrium, where every race in the country equally discriminates against another.

    Oppression is not the same as discrimination

    I may have been expressing a preference for heterosexual whisky.

    Just read it. Poorly written and I don't think it poses the question in the way you perhaps think it does, as it seems to be examining a range of tenuously-linked claims that purport to be part of a larger picture. The sense of victimisation and self-entitlement is stoked by some fairly reprehensible media and political figures for their own ends.

    Take a look at powerful elites in politics, business, media, the military. The claim that white people (whatever that means) are disadvantaged in any western nation is laughable. Many of these complaints come from people who haven't the slightest clue what prejudice means on a day to day basis.

    Why is it that every news item in the press is an accusation phrased as a question?

    Maybe its much better in the US, but in the UK most advertising is of white people, and its even more painfully obvious when the same is done in Asia.
