Mostly true but, what caused this phenomenon? Being PC? Overly tolerant? Quotas?

i dont think its a phenomenom, because i dont see it. still have vast majority whites in power.

i think most white people who complain about being oppressed are either 1. trolls 2. white supremacists who expect the entitlements that they believe all blacks get, which is stupid, and 3. trolls

i think the changes back in the 60's or so by whites were the fact that white hiring companies would not hire blacks. if you would not willingly hire, they implemented policies to force them to hire blacks.

maybe the whites who complain would not have wanted those companies to be forced to hire blacks, because it opened the playing field up and took away some power, similar to the whites who benefited from government sanctioned aparthied in south africa.

thankfully most of those whites are dead now.

if anything, its whites holding themselves back and whites only have themselves to blame if they cant find a job.

whites enacted the policies for whites to be whining about them now, so why dont they look in the mirror and see who is to blame.

it is themselves.

The real issue isn't whites, it's white males who represent 37% of the population.

Females of any race, while outnumbering males and deciding every election, are also eligible for affirmative action programs.

White males, regardless of economic status, are the sole targets of this reverse racism with poor white males disproportionately taking the hit.

so its not white males in your opinion. its poor white males. what percent of white males are poor in your opinion?

are you one of the poor white males, and is that why you so vigorously believe in this?

"We went from being a privileged group to all of a sudden becoming whites, the new victims,'' says Charles Gallagher, a sociologist at La Salle University in Pennsylvania who researches white racial attitudes and was baffled to find that whites see themselves as a minority.
Well Mr. Grit, I don't think you can come up with some demographic, some group, that is not oppressed in some manner. For example, I can't form a White Guy Tetherball Club without being proclaimed a racist. A Black Guy Tetherball Club would be okay, White Guy Tetherball Club, no. So there you go. As a white guy does it keep me up at night? No, not too late.

Like Chris Rock said, there isn't a poor white in America who would trade places with a wealthy black man. And i'm totally inclined to agree with that statement.

White males aren't taking any hits that anyone else isn't taking....all poor people are under the gun these days.

You argued this, "they enact the policies that you dislike". to make the argument you must see it, thus creating the phenomenon.

This is an uneducated reply because I do not think you read the article if you think this is trolling or about white supremacy.

So you are saying that I was right when I said PC, Quotas and Over tolerance are the reasons for the phenomenon.

I am not saying it was not needed but, has it gone too far and when will it end?

i think the reasoning behind all white clubs not being ok is because whites are the majority and represent the majority of the public. it would be silly having an all white club when the majority are white.

to me its the equivalent of having an islam only club in a country thats 90 percent islam. its foolish, its not needed, since islam is the majority there.

at the same time, i would have no problems with a white tennis club or whatever in a majority non white city such as detroit or wherever, since whites are a minority there.

you also have the negative connotations with white exclusivity throughout history which makes the idea automatically negative in most peoples heads.

God forbid there be an all white anything but the reverse is perfectly acceptable.
