FB post - perfect example of white privilege

Posted by   + Show Post

"It just amazes me how the same people who scream for equal opportunities are the same ones who insist they are entitled to "minority enrollment" and "Minority" grants for college etc. If we are really going to have equal opportunities for all then its time to get rid of minority programs so that it is an equal playing field"


Posts like this make me want to scream due to their sheer ignorance. Ugh.

Like I said POINTING OUT THAT NOT ONLY WHITES ARE PRIVILEGED! I am sick of everyone saying its a white thing. Only white ppl can be racist, only whites are privileged. And guess what people Whites are soon to be the "minority" so can we please us a different word.

Quoting talia-mom:

Not full of anything. You can't stop being a minority but you can stop being a football player.

Those scholarships are achievement based. These minority scholarships are not If you just get one for being a minority.

Quoting NorseGodessMom: 
then you are full of sh*t. tell me how this is ok. I'm making the point that "whites" are not the only privileged ppl around. Also I am against the way we glorify sports in this country.

Quoting talia-mom:Football is not the same thing and you know it.

Your reading comprehension is poor. That is a scholarship for hard work and talent. Not having darker skin or a vagina.

Not only whites are privileged, but there is such a thing as white privilege and it seems like you got a bad case of it.

Are you saying national statistics lie, or are you intentionally implying that we are so ignorant that we think only white people are, like, EVER privileged?

Methinks you should do some research before replying.....

There are targeted scholarships for all ethnic groups.

My friend who was the son of two doctors certainly needed his minority scholarship for beer money in college.

Eh, you sound exactly like my fb peeps who think that there is no such thing as racism or inequality just because there is a small number of successful minorities.
