On Minorities (and other topics)
Yup my FBFeed gave me a reason to rant again, apparently I have A LOT of liberal friends. Today's rant is sponsored by the internet meme Gobstoppers (shown in context above).
Can I start by mentioning that no I am not afraid of being a minority. I am saddened that it has come to this. The only reason that minorities are 'second class citizens' is because people still perpetuate that they will be treated different.
In jobs, education, etc etc, these 'minorities' feel the need to identify themselves as minorities, and the institutions cow tow to it to ensure 'social justice', to open their doors first to these individuals regardless of merit or suitability to the job or as another example the quality of income in circumstances of loaning money.
No, I'm not worried that if a white person is now considered a minority. Infact the issue that I have is that while the 'whites' will be treated as the majority even still. We won't be afforded the same 'rights' as those that have for decades or centuries been given the ability to come up with exclusive organizations because they were a minority, no it will still be seen by those groups as their right alone.
Though of course this isn't all groups. Hell look at the Asians do they have a group like La Rasa, or the Black Panthers. No, they do not, they melted into this country. Yes I understand that there was a time not too long ago that the African-Americans were a seperate class but that is no more. The only laws that are out there, the only difference in the rights of the African-Americans and the other Americans are the senses of entitlement and their ability to have organizations that are solely focused on themselves and not get called racists for it. Can you imagine if, within the next 20 years Caucasian-Americans decided that since they were now the minority in the country that they wanted to start up an organization called the NAAWP. The shit storm that would be unleashed would be immense to say the least.
Can you imagine if after a crime was committed that an organization called the Snow Leopards (or some equally 'white' militant establishment) called for people to be murdered in the streets just for being of a different race. Yes I know there was once a group of people who did things like that, and for those of us who were sane individuals, we denounced them does the name KKK ring a bell, or how about the Aryan Brotherhood, how many Caucasian-Americans were actually members of this. Yet every time that there is some incident where a non-colored man, attacks or defends themselves do you hear coming from important individuals in the African-American society go off like it's the end of the world. Treat the crime as the crime and take race out of it. That is what I say, for everything race should not be a part of it.
Instead of a Job/Education application that looks similar to this
()White ()Black ()Asian ()Native-American ()Hispanic ()Other____
Why do our Job/Education Applications look like this?
()American ()Work/Student Visa# _____
And again thanks for letting me answer another Rhetorical Question *§*
