    Sorry. this topic isn't really a joking topic to me. But, it's something nobody can change, right? So let's have some fun with it.

    People tend to forget change has happened and is still happening today. It may not be instantaneous but it is happening. Are women and blacks still seen as property? Mel Brooks made fun of racism when he made Blazing Saddles but could any Jew do that during WWII? Hell I can vote today and participate in this great country where as before it was illegal to teach a slave how to read. I call that progress if you want to sweat this stuff then be my guest.

    if this theory holds true, and we really become a national minority it will bring on a whole new cultural change.
    i hope the latinos can get their shit together in 30 years if they end up as the majority.

    Having a majority race basically running the country that can barely speak english will spell trouble for everyone.

    EDIT: Heavy, OKAY, so you got your equal rights from my point of view the black community DOES NOW.
    BUT, when you try to stretch the boundary PAST equal rights then theres no equality amongst anyone. Its a fight thats been going on for ages, equality of man...

    I don't think it'll take that long for latinos to be enough of major employers that to compete, everyone will get less than minimum wage. Can't happen you say? just wait. it's already happening in the construction trades.

    yea, i dont care what anyone says..

    "mexicans are taking jobs that noone wants"
    LAST TIME i checked, real working tax paying legal unemployed AMERICANS are looking for any and every job they can get.
    Having some illegal immigrant come in and work basically for free, taking our jobs, is killing us.

    to heck with all that "jobs that noone wants" bullshit. i cant stand it when someone brings that up.

    Torx, the issue (this particular situation) is not really about race but more about ignorance.

    A smart consumer doesn't support a business because of things like the owners race or their employees race, they support a business because it supplies goods or services at a quality level and a price point that is acceptable to them. Doing anything less is just stupid.

    So there will be more latinos than whites, but whites will still hold all the money? That sounds like a good time.


    All I know is, as a painfully white young adult, I know I have it easier than most.

    has anyone ever read 'White Like Me' by Tim Wise? It's a very interesting look at white priveledge. It's a bit too complex to sum up in short but basically white people - expecially white males - have a lot more priveledges in the us than anyone else just because they are white. I'm not saying it's ok for that guy to be a dick about supporting who he does, but he's probably had to go through a lot more shit in his life than you, Torx, and probably feels justified blantantly supporting a black owned business. I guess what I'm saying is sure, it's not really ok to support someone based on race alone, but that man having most likely been subjected to racial discrimination thoughtout his life has a lot more right to do so than someone who hasn't.

    dude, the mexicans over here for the most part are hard ass workers and are ok putting in the effort for shit (instead of having it handed to them on a platter), I wouldn't have a problem at all with them "running the country". The punkass second generation kids aren't any worse than the white kids. Fuck, they may be punks but they at least have some work ethic, hell of a lot better than frats mcgee

    Torx, I could moan and groan about how white people have fucked me over in my life, like the time I got beat up by a bunch of white guys cause they didn't like me walking down the street minding my own fucking business but do I come here and bitch about it cause I got my feelings hurt? I've been on the receiving end of black and white ignorance and come here and listen to people bitching about whites being oppressed as if whites are the only people that matter. F-U Have I treated you like shit? Do I look down on you? Am I equal here? I could bitch about not getting a job because of my "accent" but do I do that here? I could denigrate and bad mouth whites for our fucked up economy and sending jobs overseas with 22 million Americans out of work but I'm sure someone will blame minorities for that.

    The fact is we are not equal and we never will be period.

    I am racist by the way just like everyone else here apparently. I'm out so fuck off.

    i see your passionate about what you speak, but c'mon dude, no need to throw around the "fuck yous"
    heavy, i just want my reparations. i deserve reparations, is that too much to ask for?


    thats the mentality that keeps us in this universal rut. Keep supporting that idea, then that idea supports you.
    maybe one world religion, one world government and one world race will cure this "issue"


    and tex, im speaking of illegal immigrants, legal and hard working latinos, YES i know them, they deserve to be here and deserve to work for money just like the rest of us.

    okay, so if im subjected to racial discrimination most of my life, that gives me the right to support white owned businesses, and blatantly be proud of it? I would flat out be a fucking racist and strung up for it.
    this isnt about rights its about, this person can say this and i cant.

    THIS IS NOT THE FUCKING 30's and 40's people.

    I'm sorry, but as much as your heart seems to be in the right place, some of your ideals are fucked Torx.
    If you weren't so dead set on fighting some sort of white guilt or whatever this is, you'd see that that dude has just as much right to make his own petty decision of where he spends a sporadic $6 on lunch. Heaven forbid he feel a sense of community with those who likely come from similar circumstances as him.
    Plus, who the fuck is going to buy wings from a white person anyways.

    You jumped up some dudes ass (albeit with benign intentions) about an off handed remark in a conversation you were not taking place in and then take offence when he takes offence at you butting in. And then you go home to a message board full of pretty much all white people and start off a thread about racism with

    I'm just not sure you're fighting the good fight.


    Not to mention you wouldn't just say "i eat here because it's a white owned restaurant", because that would be a bit racist. Instead you'd say you're eating at a German owned place because you're German or whatever the hell you are. And most black people probably can't pinpoint their nationality quite so accurately as the majority of us, so it's a bit harder in that case and maybe you should just cut a little slack next time.

    As HD inferred, this thread is senseless. There is a double standard concerning all aspects of life including this topic. 'Nuf said.

    wtf are you talking about? 1- that would never happen. 2- let's just say that you have been discriminated against all your life - i mean really discriminated against, at a disadvantage in educational opportunities, job options, income levels, hassled by police officers and guys who don't want double standards with race- this situation wouldn't exist. it would be the opposite, you would be the guy supporting only white businesses because white people are discriminated against and the black guy would (maybe) be the guy calling you out for it. think about that and try to see where this guy is coming from.

    Actually I know exactly what Torx is talking about. I grew up in a black neighborhood, went to black schools for the first 7 years of my life, etc. And we were discriminated against like crazy. Shunned, bullied, threatened, etc. Try this little experiment - if there's a hood in your town, go there, park your car, and try to walk through it. If you and your car survive without damage I would be stunned.
