Or maybe we can stop playing the race card and accept responsibility
@CrazyRightWinger, I agree that people need to accept more responsibility and blame things less on race. That is a very fair point. But race does indeed play a role and i don't think it should be totally ignore. Just sharing my 2 cents. Have a good day(:
@normally weird, Race does not play a role and should be ignored. Ignoring race is the only way any racial inequalities will go away.
@CriTiKa1, race, ideally, should not play a role. Race, ideally, should be ignored. I don't believe we disagree there. But in our society today, it does play a role. Just ignoring that we have an issue won't make it go away. People are discriminated against, patronized, given special privileges, hired more often, hired less often, and more based on their ethnicity. Race plays a role today. But hopefully, it won't in the near future because it shouldn't. Hope I haven't wasted your time(: Have a lovely day
@CriTiKa1, Ignoring race does not make racial inequalities go away. You can't just pretend that something doesn't exist and you "don't see it" because that's what you think is gonna make people equal. People will only be equal when every race and culture is recognized and viewed as equal. It's really not that complicated.
@normally weird, I like the way you think
When an illegal immigrant comes to your country not knowing the the language or any of the people, and takes your job, maybe it's because you're shjt.
@I am Levi, not necessarily. Could be that your employer decides its better financially to hire the guy who is willing to work for half the money.
@The Third Gender, you have a point if mr.estabar come on the job asking for 2 quarters and a happy meal your ass is getting out real fast
@The Third Gender, half the money. Didn't have to pay into taxes, unemployment, or health benefits.
@The Third Gender, sorry I forgot I forgot to ad "-jimmy carr"
@I am Levi, I guess you're quoting another comedian, but I've known a few people who dad or brother in law owns a factory and from what they tell me, it doesn't have a damn thing to do with good or bad work. It's just about being able to pay someone half the money to do the same job, and unless you're just phenomenally good at your job, it's not worth it to pay you twice as much as an illegal worker
@Katpee, also watch out for.... equal opportunity employers, "Hey guys, they're going to give us credit for hiring more minorities but we can't ask someone's race on an application...", "Let's add it as a voluntary section", "Genius!...by the way, which box would you check Bill?" "Caucasian, sir, why?" "Oh, your fired, see HR to sign your resignation letter."
@ GematriaDragoon, that's when you claim to be 1/8 Inuit. 😈
@King Spunkmonkey, sounds like your family is part of the problem if they’re not using eVerify for their hiring...
I thought that was Josh Hutcherson
Let's play, IS IT RACIST? If the last pic was racist, then so is this.
He reminds me of the kid from Bridge To Terabithia
@InsertWittyUsername, You mean Josh Hutcherson. He kinda reminds me of Lucas Cruikshank (the kid who played Fred).
@therutabagaclub, I can see that too
Black people and people of color have been systematically disenfranchised from our society for centuries. Maybe we should start accepting some responsibility and realize that centuries of oppression have left them underrepresented in virtually every field. White people are incredibly privileged. jfc
So here's a question - what difficulty am I on if I'm white, with good parents, average financial status, and smart enough to be academically successful, but have a physical disability which makes me wheelchair bound 70% of the time, blind as a bat without glasses, deaf as... There's no good deaf animal comparisons are there? Deaf as whatever without my hearing aids, needed 80+ surgeries just to be able to walk the 30% I do, has chronic joint pain, and, the kicker, just was diagnosed with bone cancer last week. I'm not complaining or anything, I'm just wondering is this considered "easy" with all the skulls on like halo. I want an achievement for this if it is!
@GiantDwarf01, wow, you definitely haven't had it easy! I'm sorry to hear of your medical struggles, especially that they are ongoing- but you're clearly a fighter! (I want to end with a cool line about you being awesome at Halo, but I do not actually play Halo.) Good luck with everything!
@DumbledoreStyle, Why thank you friend. I appreciate that.
Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, A, B, start, my friend.
@Pubmarine Shamwich, B, A....sorry...
I know that feeling.
Da struggle is real.
