The immigration argument is hogwash, the beneficiaries of AA are slave descendants, not immigrants. Honestly, most immigrants, of all races, do better than slave descendants for some reason. For some reason even the hated Jews manage to build immense wealth in a generation. And don't tell me it's color alone because Asians have no trouble getting ahead.

And if economists estimate $1 trillion, in benefits, well we spent way more than that in the Civil war in current dollars, plus a huge moral degeneration, and not to mention a million mostly white lives. That doesn't even count AA. So whatever benefit slavery gave our ancestors, we lost it all after 1862.

I don't know enough about the other issues to comment.

I'm sure everyone's seen this by now, but just a refresher course on white privilege:

http://seamonkey.ed.asu.edu/~mcisaac/emc598ge/Unpacking.html

A number of those things have happened to me. I attended a black conference in law school my first year, with one other white classmate. Guess what, they turned to us and asked (we didn't volunteer) "as the only whites present (about 50 blacks) why don't you tell us the white point of view?" Boy did we wish we had stayed home. (I've always wondered why nobody cares if minorities label their groups black/asian/latino etc. yet if a group labels itself "white" watch out). If you'll want to be accepted, why label your groups so specifically? I don't imagine many minorities would participate in a group called the white law students association.

The thugs I mentioned earlier? Ya, well one time they were 6 black teenagers who attacked my brother and I yelling "get out of our neighborhood." For crying out loud, why is it so unsafe for a white person to walk through the south side of Chicago? (I'll never do it again, we just looked up the closest movie theater and headed that way) I see minorities all over the north side with no problems - though I've heard Bridgeport was unsafe for blacks 30 years ago.

I've been on a bus as the only white face, and yes I received some nasty looks.

And since my Mom home schooled me, I know all about having a difficult time finding textbooks supporting that type of education. We had school officials knocking on our front door insisting that they inspect our house. (fortunately my Mom did her homework and knew this was illegal). Of course, those in the neighborhood didn't like us much, after all since we didn't attend their school, they didn't receive thousands in funding. In a town of 400, word gets around fast that we're "costing" them money.

Okay.  Anyways, getting back to the question at hand, why should Obama's kids benefit from AA?

Anyways, getting back to the REAL question at hand: why should any level-headed LSD poster argue with bluepeter, who routinely displays harbored prejudice and denies the fact that he, a white male, enjoys a myriad of exclusive privileges?

Wow - now I know why I stay off the AA threads.

Unbelieveably crass title btw. Very nasty and probably designed to elicit as negative a reaction as possible (so as to call the minorities who respond 'oversensitive' and 'hostile'.

Opera, why are you bothering? (He doesn't even see the irony of complaining when someone asked him for the 'white point of view'. All my life people ask me for the black point of view (yes, in those words) on every racial issue, all the time.)

In fact irony abounds in this thread. A few negative experiences with minorities have led Freak to stereotype his ass off (yes all black people hate you, we're all terrible, you're the victim), yet he's quick to dismiss anyone else's racial experiences. Lol.

FWIW I think Lindbergh is better than Freak's arguments at least.

Thanks for making this all about me - again.  Why do you bother posting?  You've nothing to add.  You pull random insults and thoughts from out of the air.  Say something interesting.  Answer the question.  What am I saying?  Post bitchy comment here - do what you do best.

LOL. At this point, arguing with you is beneath me, my dear. I'm simply stating the facts, calling you out. And please, for the sake of wit, come up with a different insult--your panacean use of the word "b*i*t*c*h" is getting old!

Thank you for once again proving my point.  As arguing with me is beneath you, then why don't you stop making your bitchy, little, insignificant, comments. 
Does anyone have anything new to add?

Yes. I have a question. What, exactly, is twisting your panties? Please be concise, precise, and specific. Thank you.
