"3) Having a ranking system whereby you have different words for prejudice against different groups which have different levels of seriousness, with racism against X having a less-damning word and racism against Y having a more-damning word, is itself racist, because you’re saying that some groups are more important and deserve more protection than others. It’s attaching a different value judgement to different races, as if non-whites are “worth more” and whites are just cannon fodder for equality. If racism is bad, then it’s bad for all races. White people have feelings too. Whether we’re a minority, a majority, powerful or powerless, we still exist and still have the right to exist as a people. We still have a culture and a heritage and an identity that we have the right to protect and assert in our own countries, and the right to be free from all forms of racism, institutional or otherwise.

4) White people only have power in some parts of the world, namely Europe, North America and Australasia. Other races have power in other parts of the world, namely Africa, Central and South America, Polynesia, the Caribbean, the Middle East and East Asia. So if I accept that there can’t be racism against the dominant group, and the dominant group in Europe, North America and Australasia happens to be white, then presumably the argument is “you can’t be racist against white people in Europe, North America and Australasia”. By this argument, there can be racism against white people in Africa, Central and South America, Polynesia, the Caribbean, the Middle East and East Asia (ie most of the world), since whites are not the dominant group there. The International watchdog Genocide Watch has been warning the whites in South Africa are facing genocide for a number of years. Whites do not have power in South Africa, and elected black politicians routinely sing the genocidal song “Kill the Boer” which incites blacks to kill whites. Presumably you can be racist against whites in South Africa, since whites are a minority there. They never clarify this, which makes their conception misleading. Because they only ever care about “racism” in white countries. They only ever want to undermine ethnic power-structures that benefit white people. They don’t criticise Arabs for having too much power in majority-Arab countries. They don’t criticise blacks for having too much power in majority-black countries. They don’t criticise Indians for having too much power in India."

"Our generation will—one way or another—make decisions that will directly affect a rapidly aging and needy population and an exploding, unsustainable national debt. It is our duty as defenders of freedom and the constitutional republic to help steer the country away from the false promises of progressives and advocate a smaller government of moral absolutes and individual responsibility. We feel the moral obligation to intervene against those who abandon our founding principles and embrace the comfortable, but deceptive ideals of moral relativism, victim identification and outcome equivalence. This problem is real and the fight for freedom has begun."

You're way off there Jefro. Most 24 year olds are not white supremacist racist ignoramuses like you. Your thoughts and ideas are those of an ignorant old toothless uneducated redneck who is such a fkn loser that he wants to feel "speshull" just 'cause he's white.

"You can’t have your cake and eat it too.

Racism is prejudice + power, aka “minorities can’t be racist against majorities because I’ve made up my own definition of racism”
White people are a minority in the world, we are only about 7-8% of people. Whites are only the majority in some parts of the world; North America, Europe and Australasia. So if minorities can’t be racist against majorities, what was all that fuss in South Africa about? Simply move the debate to Africa and the Caribbean, where blacks are the majority. Blacks in Africa and the Caribbean have prejudice, and they have power. Watch how the Liberal will suddenly try to change the rules. We whites are a minority in the world, which is why we need our own little parts of the world where we’re the majority. Koreans are a minority in the world, but they have Korea which is theirs. If the Koreans are allowed Korea, why aren’t the Danes allowed Denmark?"

"Power + Prejudice"?
"If that’s what racism means, then I don’t care about racism. I think it’s okay for white people to have power in our own countries.
Don’t expect white people to care about racism if white victims are excluded from it. What’s in it for us? White people have a point of view. White people have interests and aspirations. We have the right to look out for ourselves first. And you’re suggesting that white people should abandon all self-interest and focus exclusively on helping blacks.
If “racism” is blacks feeling like the man is keeping them down, and “prejudice” is whites being beaten and killed by non-whites shouting racial slurs, then I contend that “prejudice” is worse than “racism” and whites should shift focus on that and stop worrying about “racism”, because it’s not as bad and it’s not our problem. The whole argument about “power+prejudice” begins from the assumption that there’s something wrong with whites having power in our own countries. Blacks have power in Africa & the Caribbean. Every part of the planet is dominated by one race or another, but it’s only whites who are made to feel guilty about it.
Four reasons why the Tumblr defintion of “racism”(“prejudice+power”) is stupid
It’s become very fashionable in the last decade to say that you can’t be racist against white people because racism = prejudice+power, and since only whites have power, only whites can commit the modern world’s cardinal sin: racism. I think there’s a few flaws in this argument, which I’d like to outline below:
1) It’s not actually denying that what I call anti-white racism exists. Rather it’s saying “yes that does happen, but we don’t want you to call it “racism”, we want you to call it “prejudice””. Whether you call it racism, prejudice, or a cheese sandwich, it happens and as a white person I’m concerned about it. You’ve not provided any argument as to why I shouldn’t be concerned about it, you’ve just provided a tautology about what word you’d prefer me to call it. If “racism” means “white people having power in specific parts of the planet” then I assume that racism is acceptable.
2) It’s trying to conveniently redefine the word “racist” to fit a biased “progressive” political agenda. The word “racist” has been around for 80 years and has never included this caveat of “can only be committed by white people”. Why do “progressives” assume the English language should be subordinated to facilitate their political goals? What they’re trying to do is control language, which controls thought, which is ultimately trying to make it impossible to even conceive of anything outside their “progressive” paradigm. The phrase “Institutional Racism” already exists to describe their “prejudice+power” version of racism. The existence of the phrase “Institutional Racism” demonstrates that racism doesn’t need to be institutional. They’re assuming that Institutional Racism is the only type of racism, and it’s not. The purpose of this is to trick white people into thinking they should feel guilty if white people are the majority anywhere, to make us support mass immigration into our countries so we can stop being so racist. It’s completely self-fulfilling, because if these people weren’t coming into our countries in the first place, it wouldn’t be a problem."

OBAMA: "We'll need Congress to protect more than 3 million jobs by finishing transportation and waterways bills this summer. But I will act on my own to slash bureaucracy and streamline the permitting process for key projects, so we can get more construction workers on the job as fast as possible."
THE FACTS: Cutting rules and regulations doesn't address what's holding up most transportation projects, which is lack of money. The federal Highway Trust Fund will run out of money in August without action. To finance infrastructure projects, Obama wants Congress to raise taxes on businesses that keep profits or jobs overseas, but that idea has been a political nonstarter.
The number of projects affected by the administration's efforts to cut red tape is relatively small, said Joshua Schank, president and CEO of the Eno Center for Transportation, a think tank. "The reason most of these projects are delayed is they don't have enough money. So it's great that you are expediting the review process, but the review process isn't the problem. The problem is we don't have enough money to invest in our infrastructure in the first place."

OBAMA: "More than 9 million Americans have signed up for private health insurance or Medicaid coverage."
THE FACTS: That's not to say 9 million more Americans have gained insurance under the law.
President Obama: Women Deserve Equal PayPlay videoPresident Obama: Women Deserve Equal Pay
The administration says about 6 million people have been determined to be eligible for Medicaid since Oct. 1 and an additional 3 million roughly have signed up for private health insurance through the new markets created by the health care law. That's where Obama's number of 9 million comes from. But it's unclear how many in the Medicaid group were already eligible for the program or renewing existing coverage.
Likewise, it's not known how many of those who signed up for private coverage were previously insured. A large survey released last week suggests the numbers of uninsured gaining coverage may be smaller. The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index found that the uninsured rate for U.S. adults dropped by 1.2 percentage points in January, to 16.1 percent. That would translate to roughly 2 million to 3 million newly insured people since the law's coverage expansion started Jan. 1.
___
OBAMA: "In the coming weeks, I will issue an executive order requiring federal contractors to pay their federally funded employees a fair wage of at least $10.10 an hour, because if you cook our troops' meals or wash their dishes, you shouldn't have to live in poverty."
THE FACTS: This would be a hefty boost in the federal minimum wage, now $7.25, but not many would see it.
Most employees of federal contractors already earn more than $10.10. About 10 percent of those workers, roughly 200,000, might be covered by the higher minimum wage. But there are several wrinkles. The increase would not take effect until 2015 at the earliest and it doesn't apply to existing federal contracts, only new ones. Renewed contracts also will be exempt from Obama's order unless other terms of the agreement change, such as the type of work or number of employees needed.
Obama also said he'll press Congress to raise the federal minimum wage overall. He tried that last year, seeking a $9 minimum, but Congress didn't act.
so you, like Lois, both agree that the song and dance about the gov't being in the way of job creation with industry regulations was just bullshit?

A list of ways Michelle Obama celebrates her birthday.

The list tries really hard to note all of Michelle’s accomplishments, but the best it can come up with is drinking more water and forcing school children to eat food they describe as “barf.”

Other important things the First Lady has done include shopping and taking vacations. She really hasn’t established herself as a woman of the people.

Here are a few highlights of the ways you can be like Michelle:

Dance to Beyonce

Move into a massive new house with your family and invite your mother to move in too

Make the cover of Vogue

Buy a Jason Wu dress

Shop at J. Crew

Watch Spike Lee’s “Do The Right Thing” on your first date with your future husband

Always hang our with your husband AND Valerie Jarrett, the perfect threesome

Roll your eyes at House Speaker John Boehner or the Danish prime minister

Challenge Desmond Tutu to a pushup contest

Hug, kiss and fist bump the President of the United States

Hug the Queen Mother

Shop at Target with sunglasses on

Make your husband stop smoking

Do the Dougie (with Jimmy Fallon)

Dine at Spiagga in Chicago

Say “never say never” to botox

Hang out in Hawaii for an extra week as an early birthday gift costing taxpayers millions more

Host the most popular boy band in the world at your daughters’ first party in their new home

Just keep on dancing…

She really comes off as a Marie Antoinette-type character that frivolously spends as the people suffer under the “King’s” iron rule. Instead of “let them eat cake” she says,“make them eat vegetables.”

I will be thankful when the media stops flashing pictures of her all over the news. Her shallowness is annoying and I find her really hard to look at. Man, is she one gigantic unattractive woman.

I’ve prepared my own list of ways you can celebrate Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday. I didn’t come up with fifty ways because she ain’t worth it.

1. Try to get rid of the retina burn from looking at Michelle by viewing pictures of Kate Upton. She’s been on the cover of Vogue too

2. Hang out with your friend that also wonders why Valerie Jarret is always in a threesome at the White House

3. Bang your head or rock out to Ted Nugent and Megadeth because they are outspoken Obama-haters

4. Eat something that doesn’t resemble vomit

5. Make sure all of your water consumption is coupled with hops and barley. In other words: drink a beer

6. Smoke a cigarette

7. Roll your eyes at every liberal/progressive/socialist you can find

8. Remember that Wonder Woman is an Amazon too and she’s hot!

9. Take vacation from reality and pretend Ronald Reagan is still president

10. Just keep telling yourself,“It’s only three more years. Three more years…”
