James Webb's article concerning diversity and the myth of white privilege is a reasoned, fact based analysis of the endless unforeseen consequences we suffer at the hands of the flower children. The largest and most destructive racist organization in the USA is the federal government. All race based initiatives should be halted. A colorblind meritocracy is all the federal government should be promoting.

Forty years ago, as the United States experienced the civil rights movement, the supposed monolith of White Anglo-Saxon Protestant dominance served as the whipping post for almost every debate about power and status in America. After a full generation of such debate, WASP elites have fallen by the wayside and a plethora of government-enforced diversity policies have marginalized many white workers. The time has come to cease the false arguments and allow every American the benefit of a fair chance at the future.

I have dedicated my political career to bringing fairness to America's economic system and to our work force, regardless of what people look like or where they may worship. Unfortunately, present-day diversity programs work against that notion, having expanded so far beyond their original purpose that they now favor anyone who does not happen to be white.

Read it for yourselves folks. This man isn't racist, he is taking a ethical, reasoned, and well thought out approach to a problem that many see on a daily basis.

James Webb: Diversity and the Myth of White Privilege - WSJ.com

Please, read it for yourselves.


The injustices endured by black Americans at the hands of their own government have no parallel in our history, not only during the period of slavery but also in the Jim Crow era that followed. But the extrapolation of this logic to all "people of color"—especially since 1965, when new immigration laws dramatically altered the demographic makeup of the U.S.—moved affirmative action away from remediation and toward discrimination, this time against whites. It has also lessened the focus on assisting African-Americans, who despite a veneer of successful people at the very top still experience high rates of poverty, drug abuse, incarceration and family breakup.

Those who came to this country in recent decades from Asia, Latin America and Africa did not suffer discrimination from our government, and in fact have frequently been the beneficiaries of special government programs. The same cannot be said of many hard-working white Americans, including those whose roots in America go back more than 200 years.

Contrary to assumptions in the law, white America is hardly a monolith. And the journey of white American cultures is so diverse (yes) that one strains to find the logic that could lump them together for the purpose of public policy.

Perry Farrell, the Beastie Boys, Green Day, etc. weren't.

But the difference is that the right wing media expected those acts and their audiences to be anti-Bush.

OTOH, they seized upon anti-Bush comments by the Dixie Chicks, Bruce Springsteen, John Cougar Mellencamp, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and Linda Ronstadt BECAUSE those performers appeal to the "heartland" and thus to "their people". Perry Farrell, Billie Joe Armstrong, the Beasties, etc. aren't appealing to "their people"

I would say this low life pig is a model for the left. The lower a person is the more respect he has among the libbies.

Webb is hardly a leftist. I'm sure feminist types would just LOVE "Women Can't Fight"

He is a down to earth, pragmatic politician who thinks for himself and doesn't adhere to any party line, and who genuinely seems interested in helping the people of his state.

Those "sick" writings referred to earlier in the thread happen to be on the recommended reading list of the US Marine Corps - which is hardly a "liberal" organization.

And you'd think conservatives would love him for slamming "diversity"

Sen. James Webb is on the far right of the Democratic Party, for anyone actually paying attention. He was a lot better than George Allen in 2006, and he's a lot better than anything the Virginia GOP has dragged out since, so I think we'll keep him

But Rush told you that Webb is vile, so there ya have it...
Is that the Rush that went to the Dominican Republic, underaged prostitution capital of the Carribean, with a bag full of Viagra?
