Yes white men are priviledged, oh yea so much it’s almost unbearable. Sorry for the enormous sarcasm there but I had too. Let’s examine the facts. Affirmative action, good or Bad? Bad for white people, especially males. Now let’s see a black female and a white male apply to the same college. The white male had a 4.0 in high school, the black female had a 2.9-3.0. Who get’s in? Well if the school has to fill quotas for affirmative action then the black female because she’s black and a female even though the male is more qualified. Affirmative action is forced discrimination. All it does is hold back a “majority” person because of things that have happened in the past and haven’t affect many if any of the students and workers today. Yea, there’s no one left alive that was a slave even for on

Man, white people sure do have short memories. Why do white people think that 40 years growing racial equality has made up for 500 years of systematic racism? Here is the sad truth: white people view life through White Goggles. White people cannot see when they are reaping benefits from their position of privilege in society and do not recognize anything but the most blatant racism, and this is why they see themselves as color-blind. Dane R’s post is typical of the way white men argue against affirmative action: they make up a hypothetical situation with premises that are rarely based on facts. I am hard pressed to believe that middle class white high school boys with 4.0 GPAs are “held back” by affirmative action. But numbers don’t lie. Numbers tell us that black people are less
