There are 4 states that whites are the minority.California,New Mexico,Hawaii,and Texas.There ae several states on the brink,Maryland,Georgia,Arizona are under 60% white.I just don't see the need for affirmitive action any longer.Minorities get grants to college,it is hard to fathom how they can't make it with a little hard work.Shoot they can be president.It is only a matter of time before whites are the minority period.I think it is the white man's duty to embrace his culture and heritage.I'm telling you white america better wake up

When I think of White people, I think of Utah, Northern New England, the Dakotas and Idaho. I don't want to live in any of those places.
When I think of Black people, I think of Compton, Detroit, New Orleans, St. Louis, etc. I don't want to live in any of those places.

Maybe you both could stop thinking of white people and black people based on goofy stereotypes.

The Dakotas have plenty of American Indians and T. S. Eliot was from St. Louis. You can't get much whiter than T. S. Eliot, his ancestors were Boston Brahmins and he spent much of his life as an English Tory type.

I merely said that if a White person wants to affiliate with a group that looks out for their interests they have the right to do that. There are certainly lots of groups for other racial/cultural groups. And who suffered the most is questionable. Stalin murdered over 20 million White Christians. I'd say in the scheme of things, that's pretty significant. I"d like to see where the reparations, dinners, museums, memorials, organizations are for the relatives of that holocaust. They don't exist because it is not acknowledged. We enslaved and were enslaved. Just like every other race and culture. No one is immune from that including blacks who still enslave each other today.

Psst! Stalin did all his dirty work in the former USSR, not the USA!
If youre looking for an apology, it might make sense to start over there...
If people were wronged in the good ol'USA, and they get together and do something about it, then I don't really see a problem with it.
For example; Join a Ukrainian association, organize, lobby and educate, and maybe you'll get something too!
Where I live, there's a small but well organized Ukrainian community with their own churches, charities and credit union.
What's your excuse? Or you too busy playing "I'm a white man, everybody hates me, boo-hoo!"
