The question that needs to be asked here is why is this considered unusual or wrong in any way. Social engineers who write this type of rubbish make it appear that Negroes are somehow being discriminated against as evidenced by their high unemployment rates. This simply is not true. The harsh truth is not all groups of humans have equal abilities. The reason that Negroes have such high unemployment rates is because they have low average intelligence. We live in a modern world economy so everyone needs to just accept the fact that a Negro is much more unlikely to meet the standards necessary to perform jobs that require mental abilities.
Really? you racist love to look down on others to make yourself look good wow if blacks are not intelligent then tell me why Africans are the most academic educated of all races? they surpass whites , asians and others and they are black you have internent you can google and check it out yourself .My German ex has Africans Friends in Germany with degrees more then one he told me Africans in Germany are hard workers and they are always in the universities he met them school.My best friend is white and she has kids five kids with 3 different men gets who is taking care of her children? the goverment and my tax i work two jobs and her parents are in welfare they are more white people in welfare than any other race. I am not black i am part black that is a difference and i am planning to go back to school so stop making yourself looking superior because no one is if you can bring the dead back , heal the sick , cast out demons , then you are superior because that means you are not human like Jesus but if you can't that means you are humans just like the rest of us , have a nice day.I am not American or English i am part white English and other stough in my dna .In addition , my African friends work two and some three jobs to pay for school because the gorverment will not help them because they are foreigners some bought houses and cars and they are immigrants so not all blacks got a hand out from the goverment like racist people like to say and no affirmitive action , shame on you .

Can you blame it on purely racism or is it a case of a lack of education. We are taught from a young age black is the negative color and white is the positive, unfortunately, there are not many black role models in Europe for the black man to look up to and for the white man to respect. I think the majority of the white population find it hard to relate to a black man and black women are more likely to get employment because they are not seen so much as a threat.
......there's no affirmative action for negrows in britain.....

.....also - blax r known to be violent in the workplace, and have attacked their fellow workers - I have experienced this myself!.......violent niccuz!

.......added to this we must mention the fact of negrows' lower average intelligence..........

yes, why don't you all go back to Africa? a black paradise with no whitey to screw it up
I had been in Africa they are lots of whites and Asians there is paradise for them and it is cheap they have good jobs from the oil field and they are using the resources because the African goverment is too corupt , greedy and stupid to see what Africa hs to offer to Africans but non Africans see it very clear and they are using their oppurtunities over there. I met whhite and Asians who can afford nice houses and maids in Africa cheaper and they send some of their money to their family back home is paradise for non Africans , do you know there allots of of English , white Americans , Germans in Africa? hey are moving there like crazy so don't believe what you watch in the media.Africa has more oppurtunities to non Africans it is a shame because Africans are not like westerners they treat their own like shit and treat non Africans like gods that is the problem with the black race , i had not seen lots of foreigners who are not black treated like shit in Africa is paradise for them.

That's because employers are afraid of being branded as a racist or sued if they "dare" fire a black. I know of two people locally that have absolutely "worthless" workers (one in each case), but will not fire them because they are afraid of backlash due to these "workers" (snicker) being black. I have talked to people that work for the state that have repeatedly complained of blacks avoiding work, calling in over and over, late, etc. but the state won't fire them because of the above reasons, AND I dare say the state has to still meet that proverbial "quota" for having a good "mix" of workers. Will be the downfall of this country. Good start to recovery will be when we fire this idiot in Washington in Nov..
Why white southerners consider themselves pure white and Aryan
and why do they have the kkk i don't get it it is because you guys have inferiority complex? i had been in the South and people there don't look pure white not like whites from California i lived in California and most immigrants were from Denmark my white friends there has Danish ancestry and no slaves existed there so no biracials passed for white married white those biracials lied to the white spouses by saying they had Native Americans to explained why they look kind of different from whites actually a native ancestry cherokee was a black or mulatto ancestor. a Dna was taken from white Southerners and west African blood showed in their dna believe that you are pure white Lol , people are sick i am no threat to whites in America i don't really look black even though i have brown skin and i am also a foreigner .

Do you know some white Europeans are not pure white a dna was taken from some white English men and guess what they were part west African they were shocked they thouth they were pure white like you , google dna african ancestry found on white Brittish men and also i met a Scandinavian who told me he was part west African , he has blond hair and blue eyes , fair skin and a German told me the same thing and he also had blond hair and blue eyes all this pure race don't exist no one is pure even though they think they are so the kkk , and neo nazis are a joke . My half brothers from Germany can pass for pure white Aryans with blond hair and blue eyes but they are not even stupid neo nazis thought they were Aryans Lol what a joke.

Tell me about it.
Ive applied for alot of jobs in chemists and taxi places etc....
Asians tend to employ their own.
A lot of them employ relatives from Pakistan in a wink wink hush hush kind of way.
I just dont think the big companies do it though.
They come under a lot of regulation reguarding equality.
So why are you blaming black people for this? If you feel you are experiencing discrimination at the hands of Asians while applying for jobs in newsagents/post offices etc then what exactly does that have to do with blacks? Do you honestly believe they are any more likely to employ us over you? If so then you are clearly deluded! Stop blaming us for you not being able to get an interview - its nothing to do with us! As for the immigration thing - most immigrants are actually coming from Europe, therefore the majority are white European, again, nothing to do with us!!

"yes, I will get you, some nice crayons"

I CBA giving a reply....

are you functionally illiterate?

The first 2 questions you have asked me ive got no idea why you have directed them at me. Or why you assume ive said anything allong those lines.

Ive got a job now.

However I do think "the work programme" definately caters more for minorities than it does for whites......

also.... with regards to my mentioning not being able to be employed by asian companies.....yes those sorts of companies discriminate in ways white people would never be allowed to do. They employ only asians.
