I don't believe that the majority of heterosexual white men think of themselves as persecuted victims, but it's clear that some do. Perhaps those who believe they are discriminated against can explain why they feel this way.

It's simple, how many white men have been in positions of power? How many have been president, senators, governors, mayors, CEO's? Look at the poorest ghettos across the USA, all White. Wealth = power, and the majority of the wealth is not held by this group. They have been oppressed for hundreds of years. First they were oppressed by the Native Americans, than by Blacks, than by Hispanics, etc... It's obvious that they are oppressed by poor minority women.

The ones IMOP that are discriminated against are the wife beaters (includding gays) and general repeat offenders of the judicial system.

It may be the most whiny crybaby demographic, but definitely not the most discriminated against.

So we finally get two votes (Mouser and NHartphotog) who didn't bother to explain why they voted the way they did.

I disagree, however I think there are many conservative white men who see themselves as being persecuted against.
