Do you want to take a ride with me and I will show a few thousand white families that did't win a damn thing? Not only are they that bottom of the barrel as far as income and quality of life, but now they have to live with the fact that ...hey every other race of people has 1,000 excuses as to why they are losing. We have nothing. we WON.

I use the term white trash when I see white trash. Certainly not limited to a given city or ethnicity. I'm totally ok with people calling others white trash, if it fits. As long as we can also recognize the trash among other races and ethnicities.

I used the term "junkies" for the people that I had to kick out of the bathroom at the pizza joint, who would shoot up and nod out. And yes, 100% of them were the whites living in the projects across the street. Sorry, is that term not politically correct enough? Did I hurt your feelings? Would you have preferred "persons with substance abuse disorder"?

It's just interesting how you so easily cast stones at these white junkies but get offended by anything else.

yes, we do know that there are poor marginalized red-lined ghettoized caucasion people (southie comes to mind). but the old-boy network tends to invest with those on a similar socio-economic strata.

your assertion that there are just as many poor caucasions as there are poor minorities (not sure if thats true, but maybe) does not correlate to the contra-positive; that there are just as many wealthy caucasions as there are wealthy minorities (there is a direct proportion among wealth, access to healthcare/education/... and race/ethnicity). the stereotypical belief that minorities have more opportunity but squander their lives on impractical things and are lazy ... seems more in the air in new england.

Where was I offended? You seem to know a whole lot about me, show me! I'm simply saying and pointing things out like I see/saw them. The way you came across in your posts made it seem like that only minorities (namely blacks) are, and I quote "dependent on section 8 and welfare, having kids when you're too young or not married, dealing drugs, doing drugs, getting in a gang, expecting someone else to pay your way and blaming your life on someone else."

Lol and for the record, my family (on my mother's side) are all Irish from the Somerville/East Boston area. I just say it like I see it.
