With all the people furious about illegal immigration in the forums lately, it has crossed my mind it's not a good time to be a Mexican-American.
But is that really true?
Throughout American history there has always been a time period where it was worse to be certain race than usual. For example, it was a bad time to be Japanese after Pearl Harbor. Native American had a rough time after the discovery of the white man etc.

Without turning this into a hate-driven nonsensical racist argument, who do you think is the worst off in America today?

Keep it civil please. Support your argument.

Poll Coming (limited to four choices for accuracy. I chose those four only based on how much they're discussed these days, but feel free to add any others to support your argument if you like)


AGAIN: DON'T MISTAKE THIS AS A BATTLE BETWEEN RACES. KEEP IT CIVIL.

Black

Because (intentionally or not) a self-defeating culture has emerged that doesn't value education or personal responsibility and has terrible "role models", and undermines the attempts of hard-working blacks who try to break out of it.

White

I have to take the blame for shit that other people's ancestors did 50-60 years before my familiy immigrated (legally) to this country. No one in my family has ever owned a slave or was ever in any position to hold anyone down, yet I get the blame for slavery and oppression prior to the civil rights movement (and after). And on top of that I have to keep my mouth shut about it.

Toss in the Mexicans with their beef, and I'm expected to leave the nation I was born in because some spainard conquered this land 450 years before anyone I was ever related to set foot on it.

And they call me the racist.

It's a bad time to be stuck on stupid, as is always the case.

Certain cultures have a tendency to be stuck on stupid more than others.

White, male.

Years ago, I took the preliminary LAPD test for entering the LAPD police academy.

The instructor seperated all of the people who passed the test into 3 groups, white, males, non-while males, and women. The white male group, the LAPD guy said forget it, you won't make it. The non-white males, maybe, and the women you've got it made.

White, because everybody has their damn hand out wanting caucasians to pay for whatever it is they want. Politicians want their money to buy votes from minorities.

Blacks, poor guys, they are getting left out of the minority game, being overrun by Hispanics and Middle Easterners. But the good news is, they have finally found out it is the leftist socialist liberal commie scum Democrats that are really "keeping them on the plantation." Black poverty and broken families are bought and paid for by years of sucking on the Democratic tit.

Hispanics, because if they do conquer the southwestern US, there won't be any Caucasions' yards to mow. The Caucasians will move away and take their money with them. The damn Mexican govt is not going to give them all those freebies. Dang, all the running through the desert for nothing.

And then there are the Middle Easterners. They are working themselves up into being wiped off the face of the earth. I mean, what do they think will happen once the soccer moms wake up to a major city having been dirty bombed by Islamofacists? They'll quickly turn from "Peace, not war!" to "NUKE THOSE MF'rs!!!" How will Middle Easterners do their Hage thing if Mecca is radioactive? If they are being chased through the woods by mobs with torches and pitchforks? It will not be pretty.

i voted white because we have to bend over backwards to not offend the others.

i dont personally see muslims taking much of a beating due to 9/11, since white people forgot about 9/11 already it seems. the anger was over pretty soon for the most part

Good job.

Yea, yea we all bitch about being blamed for other cultures failings, but when it comes down to it Western Culture. and any race that follows it, is on top.
The worst thing to be is a black with the ghetto attitude - they will go nowhere in life.

Based on the title - "What's the worst thing to be in the United States?" and before reading the thread I was going to reply -> An aging, overweight, ugly, homosexual male tool and die maker who smokes and enjoys single malt scotches; Cause if you fit the description you ain't getting nothing.

After seeing the poll and reading the thread I call "white"

Being hispanic isnt easy. My family is Puerto Rican and I was born in Brooklyn. I'm expected to be some leftist, fag lovin', welfare having, 5000 kids from different women, and so on and so on


That fact that I am not those things makes me a traitor and confused and all kinds of other things that are negative. You should see what I have to deal with when people back east learn I am conservative repulican with guns.


Tough like you cant imagine, but I'm glad I live in free America Utah now. No one judges me now.

Hispanic.

Take a read at "Freakonomics"

He found by intially studying "The Weakest Link" that old people and hispanics are actually the most discriminated against. It used to be black people and women, but thanks to the civil rights movement and feminism, people are not as willing to stick out their necks to discriminate against them for the fear of being viewed as intolerant.

And the poll, which places "white" at 48% is kind of sad. Yup, there are no

-white colleges for me to go to
-white businesses for me to work
-white role models for me to look up to
-reflections of white culture in all aspect of society.



It's not "white guilt" as neo nazis like to complain about (I heart northern idaho) but it's the cold hard truth. Woe is to the colored dude who tries to get a job at a financial firm, haha. Unless he's from Britain in which case he's got double minority brownie points. Two negatives is a positive!

The minority hierarchy...as I see it from the southern part of the country. Note that this covers stereotypes, not individuals. If you start taking people as individuals, any race based theory breaks down.

White - Self-explanatory. Whites made the ladder and call the shots, so they get the top slot.

American Indian - It isn't true out west, but down here everyone is part Cherokee, so they are pretty much lumped in with whites.

Asians - Asians are almost-white, as in white people like them all and they are successful. Only some of the older generation of others still dislike the Japanese, and sometimes don't discriminate.

-------The line between "effectively white" and "non-white" passes through the middle of the Hispanic category: Some Hispanics can achieve the same level as Asians, others fall lower on the ladder----------

Hispanics - Illegal immigration and the crap out in California aside, Hispanics are generally seen as people who "work hard" and "only fight their own kind"...apparently two valuable traits to have. Plus there are a lot of them who are either born here and are well-integrated and successful or a lot who are actively trying to assimilate. As a result, they rank pretty high.

Indian Indians - They are integrated and successful, but are distrusted for some reason. Most likely it is because they speak with an accent that they can never get rid of, often get mistaken for Arabs, and some sort of poorly conceived "They took our jobs!" train of thought. For whatever reason, people are wary around them.

Blacks - They've always occupied the bottom for a lot of reasons it is best not to get into. You've probably heard them all and you can decide the merits of the arguments on your own. It would take a book to discuss them all here.

Arabs/Iranians/Et al - They had been sliding downwards since the late 1970s and officially occupied the bottom of the hierarchy after September 11th. Even the most worthless POS gangbanger can and does hate Arabs.
