    Not my fault if you want to be stupid and feed the liberal idiocy of being victims. I'm not pretending anything. You are. I feel bad for the black students.

    But no, that can't be right, since I'm a (mostly)white male. Everything must have been handed to me.

    You aren't going to fix society's ills by erecting walls. You need to build bridges.
    Mmm, let’s see..Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth denied women admission. They didn’t have to compete with half the population.isnt that affirmative action? When I lived in New York City women had to have a 92 average to get into the city colleges and males had to have an 88. Wasn’t that affirmative-action. After it became illegal to discriminate on account of race, it was required that a photograph was enclosed in an application.
    Boys got scholarships for sports..girls didn’t get them until title IX...wasn’t that affirmative action?
    Being a white male gave you privileges. I am not saying you took a advantage of them.I have said this repeatedly, my husband was a bond trader and he will be the first want to tell you had he not been a white male he wouldn’t have been given the opportunity to go down on the trading floor. When you looked down on the training floor the women you saw were the secretaries. Thank goodness so much of this has changed and it didn’t just happen in a vacuum. But the reality is there is resentment when someone else is being given a chance to level the playing field

I've had MOSTLY good relationships and usually stay friends with my ex's, not that it's any of your fucking business. At my ex's right now. ;-)

    I act like a man because I am a man. It's good to be a man and I never lack a steady stream of women who appreciate that.

    Do you need references?

    One thing I am not is a 'victim.' You should have seen me in court acting as my own lawyer....instructing the judge to admonish my ex for giving rambling, evasive answers. Priceless!
    Only an extremist believes that if a man tells a woman she looks nice that he will get fired. That’s extremism
    When you write that you never behaved like a normal man I would imagine there was some relationship problems. You shared that I didn’t assume it
    No I don’t need references because to be honest I really don’t believe you but that’s my prerogative. Acting as your own lawyer LOL I would love to hear the other side of the story. By the way I am not an abusive wife but that’s the price I want extremist would think

    Of course ....I don’t know what would have happened.

    This exact thing actually happened to a friend of mine who was visiting from France when her hotel room got robbed.

    So it happens.

    Now what on earth this has to do with "white privilege" is anyone's guess. This has to be one of the most lamest examples of supposed racism I have ever seen.
    I never heard of that....but if you all see blacks and White viewed with the same suspicion, I will have to disagree

    I don't even see two whites being viewed with the same suspicion. There are so many factors involved, mostly in the mind of the person making the judgment, that it is impossible to know why such things happen. Sure, you can take general statistics and extrapolate possible reasons, but that is, in the end, just speculation.

    Seems like that shut them up, good post.

    Oh, and let’s not forget about legacy student admissions, which is affirmative action for the type that like to complain about affirmative action...
