Like use your race as leverage to get a job, or claim racism for being declined or rejected for something?


Is accepting grants or loans or medical care based on race as bad?

Seeing as I'm white, I don't think I'm allowed to play the race card.

Hell no, only losers do that.

Seeing as I'm white also, attempting to play the race card would probably land me in prison.

Ditto that...
I am half injun(wagon burner) and ill be darned if I accept anything based on my skin color or race.
I am not sure if playing the Redskin card even works...
Heck here in Texas people just think I am another Mexican...

IIRC isnt that the WHOLE basis on the "I had a dream speech"???? Not to be judged by the color of your skin...I would assume this goes for getting a job for which you are not qualified for.

I know the population here isn't 100% cracka.

Not that white folks are all that homogenous, I mean, you call a mick a limey and you got a fight on your hands, and call any of them a frog and see what happens.

Yep. Funny how many black people, who spent all this time trying to promote equality and color-blindness, are the same ones that say we need to recognize that someone is black and weigh it in when considering them for jobs, monetary aid, etc.

Not for me. I hate feminism and all that crap.

I read somewhere that if you were 1/32 black, you were considered black...maybe that was a state thing. It was a long time ago. America is a weird place as you are considered a minority even if only the amount of minority blood in you is a minority of your make up..

Am I considered Irish and German because I am 3/4 that? Nope.

My blonde haired kids are considered eskimo too.

Weird fookin' world this is.



Anyhow, I take it that the consensus is that if I were to involve myself in some of the business loan programs that the state here offers natives that many of you would not look favorably upon that.

When I hear someone use race as a reason for inferiority or preferential treatment, I vomit in my mouth. Then, I kill a kitten.

I don't have to play the race card. Others play it for me. I just have to show up and schools, employers, organizations want me on-board to spruce up their numbers.

Playing the race card is for losers with nothing to offer. If you're a top notcher, you get in anyway.

I would have thought the frog in you would have held you back.
Link Posted: 2/4/2006 2:24:19 PM EDT
I'm a minority (Asian) but being Asian doesn't get you any special preferences. Minority scholorships? Just the opposite, you don't qualify and you gotta score extra high just to get into your college of choice because of quotas. Get attacked by blacks because of your race? Not a hate crime (but it would be if it were the other way around). I've never felt it helped me get any jobs.

I don't think grants/scholarships for certain groups is wrong if it's from a private institution. ie Bill Cosby wants to set up a foundation to give money to disadvantaged blacks, nothing wrong with that. The government however should not be giving preferences to anyone IMO. Discriminating one group to atone for past dicrimination against another group doesn't do anyone any good.

Of course it does! Here's how to pick up a hot black chick. You walk up to her, dressed tastefully of course, and say, "Hey babe. I've got a good job, no drug addictions, disease free, and no criminal record. Want to go to a movie and have sex at my place later?" Works every time.

In advertently I may have.

I'm a big polish-german American but I tan very easily and used to have long hair. I got my bachelors at a small arizona state college and when I applied to a big time Northeastern university for my Ph.D. I definately got the impression people thought I was American Indian.

Whooops.
