I was just wondering, why it is called discrimination when an African American or Hispanic is turned down for a job, but when I get turned down it is because I am not qualified or just not the right person for the job?

Why is it when Hispanics in this country are arrested for a crime they all of a sudden cannot speak English?

Why is it that OVER 50% of our social services funding is spent on African Americans or Hispanics?

I am not suggesting that ALL African Americans or Hispanics take advantage of all that this country has to offer but it does seem like many of them are giving 'special treatment' that is NOT offered to the other races of Americans. Isn't this REVERSE DISCRIMINATION?

I am not trying to be a smart a@@. I truly do not understand and am wondering if anyone else out there feels the same way.

If you are asking people who are also unaware of the answer to that question, then the best place to post that particular question is probably not on a African American forum...because I daresay most of the black popele on this site know why!
