Pretty much! But your wording is a little off. It's not that they are against Blacks benefitting, it's that they are against the hardest working best candidate not getting the position because of race.
If you want to call them that. However, most of the people that liberals label as racists, are not racists at all. I have been called racist many times by liberals, simply because I pointed out, via FBI published statistics, Blacks commit the vast majority of gun violence.
No, as I have said, what I want, is for the best applicant to get the school seat, position, or job. Regardless of race, sexual orientation, or gender.
Where did I ever say I feared revenge? You made that up. I simply asked you why you wanted revenge.
Hmmm, so NOW that white men no longer get the preferential treatment, it's suddenly a bad thing?

See, I don't get that. How come it was okay for 250+ years when white men were the beneficiary of preferential treatment, but now all of a sudden it's a "bad bad thing" that someone should get preferential treatment based on their race or gender?

That just sounds a bit hypocritical and self-serving.

I say if it was okay for the past 250+ years, then it has to be okay for the next 250+ years.

You act like revenge is a bad thing.

Fence walkers..pay attention to the progressives on these boards. they are haters. Their minds are fixated on seeking vengeance on perceptions of times long gone. Bitterness runs through their veins and they take from you and know that without it, their movements will collapse. So to have extreme feminism and extreme gay movement agendas, you must reconfigure and then destroy hetero marriage. Those agendas have merits. But no nation can survive without a healthy hetero marriage system. Be truthful. Look at what we have become. The cost of raising a child is several times more then it has to be now and we are a much more self centered people with plenty of psyche issues to go with it. Our politicians are traitors. Men and women with any say in the media are tools of elitists and some on these boards are too. A slow steady process into servitude is our future. For it is happening now. If you work you are a slave. If you are hetero married you are nothing more then a breeder slave as agendas have usurped sense. This of course will not last forever. Humanity to them is evolving. Human are no different then several thousand years ago. They need to be taught civility, manners, educated, etc. And all of this is tested when you are dealing with haves and have nots in the world and in nations. We have changed that. Low IQ now rules. Being street smart super cedes being worldly wise. The only knowledge needed is beating the system. So knowing every progressive law passed is the pathway to success even if inferior to someone else. The idiots do not even understand that someone will come and take from them when things get bad enough and no amount of crying how they were proponents of the system will help them. There is progressive racist charges and then there are common sense racist charges. Progressives are the Klan and the lynchers of the modern era. And they rule most of the roost. When they lose they get threatening and/or violent. Learn their rules. Learn their ways of moving from one point to another the easiest way. They believe they are owed and give very little back forcing others to do so. Why wouldn't anyone want that? But it has limits as resources run low or out after awhile. And they were there first and are not going to give it up voluntarily or even share it as you aging boomers are finding out by some of their views. And you paid. Don't trust them. Be wary.

Why on earth, would any race expect preferential treatment? My understanding was that the goal was...total equality?

That's what happens when you get a degree in basket weaving or or whatever other stupid crap people get degrees in.

I don't know anyone with a useful college degree- i.e. engineering, science, medicine, etc- having any problem getting a a job and having a successful career.

My daughter will likely go in the military and ensure herself a successful career in medicine, just like her dads did.

Some people are stupid (regardless of their race).

You already posted that. Again show where I have said anything about FEAR. I simply asked you why you wanted revenge.

Good for you. Thanks for pointing that out.
What's wrong with revenge?

Only those quilty of something would be opposed to others getting revenge for wrongs of the past.

If you were injured in an accident by a drunk driver would you just let them walk free, or would you sue them for your medical bills?

If the drunk driver was killed, would you sue his estate- and thereby harm his innocent descendants- or would you just "move on"?

You may call it revenge, I call it justice.

Didn't you ever learn 2 wrongs don't make a right?
Didn't you learn the US has been a country 237 years, not 250+?
Before you come back with, slavery and racism have been around longer than the US, slavery and racism have been around for thousands of years. You wouldn't have chosen 250+ if that is what you were talking about.
I was talking about white privilege in America, which has been around for over 250 years regardless of whether it was called the USA or the colonies. If you want to go back thousands of years, that doesn't really make your case any better.

Again, why is racial preference "wrong" all of a sudden? Is it just because the occasional white person is on the short end of the stick now?

If it was okay when whites benefited, then it's okay now that whites don't benefit as much.

Gladly.

To that student: "You're a whiny little bitch who doesn't appreciate all the continue privilege you have in America just because you're white, and that you & your family got where they are in large part because of that white privilege. You've likely lived a very sheltered life where you never had to worry about crime or poverty or being discriminated against or denied a job or housing or promotion because of your who you are. Now you're getting a taste of what that feels like. Sucks don't it? Now multiply that feeling time a billion and you might START to get a clue what minorities still go through every day in America. Now go up to that person and congratulate them on getting into college and wish them a happy & successful life."

Happy?

What's racist is that you think that standardized IQ test results broken down by race are an indication of the intelligence of all members of that race.

If you didn't mean it to be racial, then you would have posted the breakdown of average IQ by income level, or gender, or geographic location, or religious preference, or any other metric.

But no, you focused on the average by race, and implied that had something to do with their qualification to attend college.

Good little racist......

I don't know. Maybe you should ask that of all the whites who for the past 250+ years have expected- and in many cases demanded & even legislated- preferential treatment.

Who ever said the goal was total equality? Certainly not straight white Christian men.

Get your facts strait. Martin never saw the gun until it was too late.
Posting assumptions and insults along with no sources, links, or proof, shows you have no substance to back your claims.
I've seldom if ever seen you post proof, like most righties you seem to think your word's good enough. We know it's not.

Whether "Martin saw the gun" or not is meaningless, nor did I say anything about him seeing it - yet another example of you distorting what other posters say. He WAS armed in contravention of normal block watch procedure, and he DID go off, armed, after Martin. Martin confronted him, there was a struggle, and Zimmerman shot Martin who was defending himself. Martin is innocent; Zimmerman is guilty of manslaughter.

Think about that one for awhile, rightie.

So if it was okay for skin color to get you preferential treatment for the past 250+ years, then it must be okay now for skin color to get you preferential treatment.

Ooops, I guess that all depends on WHICH color is getting the preferential treatment, right?(wink, wink)
More deflection. That is not what you posted. You replied to his post as if he were saying something other than he said.

No, it just shows a racist will use the race breakdown to imply all members of that race must have the same results just because they belong to that race.

The average IQ of poor people is lower than that of rich people. Doesn't that mean all poor people are less intelligent than rich people because they're poor?

The average IQ of none-English speaking individuals is lower than the IQ of those whose primary language is English. Does that mean all those who don't speak English are less intelligent because they don't speak English?

The average IQ of those in the confederacy is lower than the IQ of those in the Northeast. Does that mean all southerners are less intelligent than Yankees because they live in the confederacy?

You can draw whatever conclusion you want- you CHOOSE to draw the conclusion race is somehow an indication of your IQ.

That makes you racist- as well as ignorant.
