You have a lot of nerve calling names with the many posters on this forum who make threads and support threats that use a variation of the "N" word. By your consistent support you are in agreement with them and add to the overall oppression of people of color.
It has nothing to do with "people of color", it has to do with work ethic and being willing to be at your work station at a certain time to fulfill a certain task that you were hired to do. If you thought you were above that job you should have told the boss that during the hiring process. You should have informed him that you think you are special and told him that the time clock is for all the other workers but not you. And BTW, where did I use or support the "N" word? Please show me. I said you get treated the way you deserve. Does that mean you are an "N" word? You are implying that it does, and to that I say, If the shoe fits.....

But in actuality hookers don't get what they want and get very little take home pay but maybe that would be right up your ally, or up something along those lines anyway.
As someone who benefits from White privilege you can't understand my world. My insensitive WHITE MALE Supervisor watches me like a hawk, especially when I first arrive and during break times and has the nerve to call me out and embarrass me in front of other workers for being late back from breaks or not starting to work IMMEDIATELY after clocking in. "Latisha, chop - chop" he always says. Whatever "chop - chop" means?

You just don't get it because you are not BLACK. At work you are put on a pedestal while others like me continue the treatment our ancestors received and we will continue to carry their great burden. In many ways I am treated live a slave.

"embarrass me in front of other workers for being late back from breaks" This is an easy fix, DONT BE LATE. It is you responsibility to be on time. Why should he have to babysit a grown woman to make sue she is doing what she is supposed to do? FYI- chop - chop means get your ass in gear and get the job done you are being paid to do. Instead of complaining and claiming he is mean to you because of you pigment, you should start being a model employee and see how pleasant things can be. Only problem then would be the "people of color" that would say you are sucking up to whitey or call you and "Uncle Tom" or whatever the female version would be. They don't want you to get ahead. They want you to be miserable and stuck in the pits with them but here is a news flash, there are just as many whites in the pit too that are lazy. You want better? Work harder and show the boss you are trustworthy, hardworking and care about what you are doing. You might be surprised.

You are clueless.

White Males in are dominant positions in management in all the jobs where I have worked and where I currently work. My supervisor, who is a typical White Male told me I will not advance until I obtain more education. This is typical advice from someone who doesn't understand my world and is another thing I have to overcome.

White males who are Diversity people get privilege.

Diversity white males include Jewish white male, disabled white male, queer white male, and Hispanic white male.

The only true white male privilege that exists today are the legal privileges granted by big government to Diversity (victim cult) white males.

Diversity white males include Jewish white male, disabled white male, queer white male, and Hispanic white male.

Here are only some of their legal privileges:

Jewish White Male - slavish govt support for Israel, Wall Street TARP bailouts, hate speech prosecutions, taxpayer-paid holocaust museums, selective tax breaks and credits, neoconservative war-mongering, anti-discrimination laws, govt set-aside contracts, mass media dominance, Hollywood subsidies, nepotism and cronyism.

Disabled White Male - generous disability pensions, premium health care, preferential parking and public access, Affirmative Action, National Health Care

Queer White Male - sodomy civil rights, abortion civil rights, govt sponsored AIDS hysteria, pornography civil rights, obnoxious NEA art grants, hate speech prosecution, Wall Street TARP bailouts, anti-discrimination law, National Health Care, mass media dominance, Hollywood subsidies.

Hispanic White Male - anti-discrimination law, illegal alien amnesty, Affirmative Action, govt set-aside contracts

In the case of Adam Lanza, his white male privilege was based on the fact he was queer. The privilege he received is a complete news blackout of his queer status, and media pundits ignoring how his gayness led him to a gay-rage rampage attack on children in Newtown.

Get off BPT and get on board to work for a living. You are being paid to do a job, not be late, not complain about your job, not socialize with friends but to do a JOB and and JOB WELL! This delusion that you are being treated as a slave is so imbedded in your brain that you cannot move away from it and be a successful productive worker. You don't like what you do for a living? Do something about it, stop blaming others for your own idiocy. Insanity is doing the same thing over and expecting the same results.

You said that if someone applied for a job with an ethnic name like mine you would toss their application. That is racism! Remember? We do not have jobs because of management like you so shut up and own your bigotry, hatred and racism!

You even had the nerve to mock the beautiful dance of Ray Lewis last weekend.

You are the perfect example of White Male Privilege, bigotry and oppression.

I AM doing a job washing dishes at the restaurant. But my White Male Supervisor has been on my case ever since Hispanics were hired who wash dishes much faster than I do because they are quick. I am the same but these Hispanics make me look slow and my insensitive White Male Supervisor is on me to work as fast as the Hispanics. I cannot talk to coworkers as I do not understand Mexican and they only talk to each other anyway. This is unfair but my White Male Supervisor doesn't understand and says if I want a better job more education is the only way and that I need to work faster.

I also have to do dirty jobs like mopping floors and taking out garbage and trash more than others.

Do you understand now?

Because you lack initiative to better yourself. Not my problem.
