White privilege is cheerleaders who flip

Cheerleaders are predominantly white girls and boys. Why? Because their parents could afford gymnastics lessons. It’s just one of the many ways that white privilege is ordinary. I’m white but a black friend who was asked to integrate the university’s cheer squad was shocked when skills defaulted to an all white team.

    Ok. Again I’m mixed. Middle class born in a very racially blended community. I was working at a local Police dept. when a coworker threatened to F ME UP over not being at my desk to get a report when she was on the phone having an argument. I just said whatever when she kept running her mouth. I was then interrogated like a criminal for over a year, recorded with two investigators, taken down to chiefs office in police car for over a year… Because she accused me of saying YOU PEOPLE. I was badgered with question like are you prejudice, do you use that phrase a lot, do you know what it’s like to be a slave or discriminated against… Well that one yes. I’m mixed with Latin but the pd said well you don’t look it when I mentioned it. The black lady threatened me which us an offense you can get warrants for but they were more interested in YOU PEOPLE. Total bull crap, my rights were violated, because blacks want to pull the race card all the time. And a lot of whites in high places let them because they are afraid of them or you have the dip s***s who think they do owe blacks because of their ancestors may have slaved their ancestors. No one owe anyone anything, rock on cheerleader girl. Who cares what they think. Everyone has excuses for their failures in life. I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my hand but I have the means of getting there just like everyone in America does.

      I can’t tell you how many time I saw this sort of foolishness when I was in the corporate world. Blacks are unbelievably prejudiced when it comes to white/black issues. My autistic stepson got a job with the fed. government as a copying clerk. He worked with four blacks. He was physically threatened for doing such a great job even with his handicap. He made these morons look bad by simply doing what he was supposed to do.
      Many of them haven’t figured that they can get ahead by working hard and getting along with others. If they must have a chip on their shoulders, it should be against their own race. They are the ones that murder 17,000 people a year and don’t have the brains to make it on their own without depending on other races to provide jobs for them.
      There is a double standard in the work place in many situations. With blacks, you can’t make the same demands as you do for other races or you are “trying to make them fail” in their opinions. It is the same in schools. You can’t expect good grades from them because their moms don’t give a crap and they don’t want to study hard and appear the be “acting white.”
      It is all great, but with their nasty attitudes and “it’s not my fault” mentality, they really should try to live on their own and open up companies so they won’t have to cause problems.
      Many fit into society and are not morons. I am not talking abut them, just those that think we owe them everything. You know “Them People.”
      Two more little tidbits, First, we didn’t just go over and take slaves. They were sold out of captivity. Their alternative was usually death while a captive. They were sold by their own to Arabs for centuries before the Europeans. Secondly, Those that transported slaves were Europeans and not Americans. Colonists were mostly British. So maybe they should blame the British.

        Blacks are unbelievably prejudiced when it comes to white/black issues.

        Unless you’ve spoken with all of us, how do you know? We are not some monolithic culture where everyone thinks and acts the same.
        The few bad experiences I’ve had with some whites don’t cause me to paint them all with one brush.

        Many of them haven’t figured that they can get ahead by working hard and getting along with others.

        Again, have you quizzed every workplace in the USA and found that everyone thinks their Black co workers are the worst?

        There is a double standard in the work place in many situations. With blacks, you can’t make the same demands as you do for other races or you are “trying to make them fail” in their opinions.

        Where do you get this stuff? I know you are frustrated but…really?

        You can’t expect good grades from them because their moms don’t give a crap and they don’t want to study hard and appear the be “acting white.”

          I agree, some, not all black people are racist just in the fact that some blacks feel that they are owed something due the past. Just look at the FDNY test. They (the powers that be) dumbed down a relatively easy civil service test. I took the test about 30 years ago. I bought the book, studied for about a week, and got a 95. Now a liberal judge struck down the test as discriminatory, and what is the result? The city of New York has to take dumber people just for the sake of political correctness, and appearances. I’ll tell you what is racist, waiving the 50 dollar fee to take the test for minorities,and giving free classes to minorities as well. What is truly racist, is saying that the test is flawed, and discriminatory and that minorities aren’t smart enough to pass a simple civil service test. There are several websites with questions from the test, that my 16 year old nephew could pass. Hopefully these a##hole liberals can think about that when their asses need saving in a house fire or God forbid another September 11 type of attack happens

            Another interesting thing is that the Black Firefighters hopefuls that passed the first test also had their results thrown out. I wonder though, is there one test given only to minority candidates, and another to Caucasian candidates? I’m not clear on that, but I will say that if the test was in effect “dumbed down” for minority candidates, but not equally administered to Whites, or if whites were given a harder test then hell yes its discrimination.
            It seems like the stated GOAL is to increase minority candidates which probably explains paying for the test fees. I Know for instance that in the Nursing profession, male nurses are underrepresented. In efforts to increase male enrollment in nursing programs, many nursing programs offer male nursing students reduced tuition and fees as well as free books. Male candidates of any color are often taken before females with better grades and test scores. Here again the stated GOAL of those incentives is to increase the number of males in the nursing profession. A male nurse trainee is still going to have to pass the rigorous trials of nursing school like any other female candidate, just as those fire academy recruits are going to have to get through the fire academy. In both cases, those who can’t succeed won’t. They will fail too many tests, or choose to drop out because they can’t handle the load. The ones that do succeed and graduate are qualified to do the job. Are they not? It still sucks for the person that gets passsed over though, no doubt.

      I really glad I read this. I am Asian American, and I work for a major corp in the middle of nowhere. Most of the people who live here are white and for the most part very nice and ignorant (not racist).

      Anyways, I’m glad I read this because the other day a black lady told my boss that I was racially profiling her and that I should be re- taught how to do my job. This news came to me as a shock for two reasons. One, it was really unexpected and two, I AM A MINORITY! I think every person who is minority in America has felt discriminated against.
      For days, I kept thinking about this incident. But I think I am at peace with it now. I think all people should get fair treatment and fair opportunities. Everyone’s situations might be different, but we can all make the right choices to better our future.

    Margee, don’t you love the Cheerleading movies, (white men can’t jump also) how they make all (mostly blonde ) white girls look like air heads & but the hot bod black girl always have more sweet dance moves and can always teach the white girl something, but if a white person make a comment, joke or movie like that theyre racist…. Oh yeah I said it is already been bar-root-en. Please! Spirit finger even…. I have never seen white people lame like that. I guess the rich black girls must get the same bs you got from poor white chicks! Ha! Nah they probably don’t pull the race card. Theirs doesn’t work!

  • Iris

    Do you think the phrase “You People” is something a POLICE dept should interrogate a civilian employee over and not threatening to F*ck someone up? Ridiculous! Oh all the big dept heads are black… Excluding the dip sh** white people who are so spineless they didn’t speak up. Draw your own conclusions, I was discriminated against just bc of abuse of power! If it was the other way around the NAACP would be on them. Funny how being black in America and pulling the RACE CARD works to THEIR advantage! I’m so over it! Most black stick up for blacks even if they know its not true. From my experience whites are not like that. If two blacks and one white person are in a room & the one black person starts something with the white bet your sweet bottom the other black person will defend the black person not the white no matter what. (Most) YES I HAVE A LOT TO SAY ON THIS MATTER… I’M sick of the it’s because I’m black whiny bull crap! It’s just making this country regress instead of grow to be better for EVERYONE! I would like some feed back on the you people thing… Makes me so sick..

      Race relations has gone to the crapper. What really bothers me are whites that kiss their asses and feel that we owe them everything. Blacks eat this crap up and take advantage. In reality these liberal morons feel that blacks are incapable of surviving outside of the jungle. It sees as if the press must make go overboard and praise them for doing what is status quo for other races, ie. having a job, supporting the family, working, getting good grades. Everyone is supposed to do these things.
      I don’t wont them living in my neighborhood as they have no respect for neighbors. They play their music full blast at any time of the night and the more that come around, the bigger the chance is that crime will start occurring. I am also discussed when black activist complain that there is a disproportionate number of blacks in prisons. How smart do they need to be to figure that if they commit 80 of the crime, it is likely that 80 percent will be sentenced. Unfortunate, they are too often released for their crimes only to continue with the spree.
      And with Obama as president, things have really gotten lousy. One can’t even have a negative opinion about the guy without being called a racist. I guess that makes me a huge racist as I feel he is the biggest joke this country has ever had for a president.
      Bottom line, I am tired of these whiney idiots screaming about all that doesn’t go their way. Time to go back to segregation as far as I am concerned.

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY White country and ONLY into White countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY White country and ONLY White countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-Whites.

    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-Blacks were brought into EVERY Black country and ONLY into Black countries?

    How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

    And how long would it take any sane Black man to notice this and what kind of psycho Black man wouldn’t object to this?

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the White race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.
