Firstly I said nothing about the past so please do not twist my statments into something I didn't mean. But PLEASE you tell me how whites are NOT discriminated in the social atmosphere when it comes to walking down the road in a socially diverse area. Elderly people being harrassed and even assaulted. But other than violence if you want to read about a white dicrimination case and pick a part http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/02/09/... then here ya go.<quoted text>
"White Americans are more discriminated now than ever because everybody has been so concerned with offending other races."
Let's turn back to your original statement, perhaps you can tell us when White Americans were discriminated against in the past, then we can compare that level of discrimination with the present to determine the level of increase. I suspect that you statement is true after a fashion, since any percentage greater than zero would represent an increase, regardless of how small that increase may be.
"Where are the "all white" scholarships and exclusively white campuses?"
This seems to be of great concern to you, while at the same time admonishing us to forget the past and stop holding a grudge.
Why are you concerned that there were, and may still be, private scholarships that are racially based?
Where are the campuses today that are racially exclusive?
"the people who founded this country and "oppressed" all other races are NOT here anymore."
The founding of this country occured in the late 1700's, those people were not the same people who originally colonized different portions of North America - and colonization is a profit-based endeavor that very often involves conquest, genocide, subjegation, and oppression of indigenous peoples (and the cheap laborers brought along to invest their sweat equity in nation building).
While you may find such facts "oppressive", discussing these facts does not further any grudge except for those who are uncomfortable with the discussion. Your advice to forget the past and look towards the future would have more resonance if they were not couched in racial apologetics.
And the only reason I bring up the college topic is because of this right here:http://www.bet.com/shows/ black-college-tour.html And there is the incident where the college bound boy won a scholarship to only return it because he found out it was meant for african americans.
The earliest records of the African slave trade in America date back to the beginning of the 17th century, when racial slavery was a punishment for servants who broke the law. In the 18th century, slaves were mostly used in the South to work in plantations and farms, especially by rich landowners who could afford the extra expense in order to maximize their profits. By the start of the Civil War in 1860, there were approximately four million slaves of African origin in the US. Thanks for your observations.
