I ask you this because on college campuses across the country there are events held regularly that are specified to be POC only. POC I asked myself? Ohhhh. People Of Color. But wait... Isn't a good litmus test for anything to picture that thing as the polar opposite of what it is and THEN ask if it is still ok? That has always been MY test. And it seems that these fail that test. So I ask is a whites only event ok? At a college or anywhere else?

We have this all over the place. Imagine White History Month, or Straight Pride Parade.

Using Black History Month as an example, I get that there are "inbalances" as far as the history that has been taught and the way textbooks have been written, etc. But I dont think the way to remedy that is with more seclusion. Push to have history taught *accurately". If a black man or woman did something worth teaching, then include it. And if there are fewer blacks in the teachings as a result, that's life. If there are more, that's fine too. But to separate it out and make every black guy that ever wrote poem or painted a picture out to be some historic figure is just silly.

What I have an issue with is the double standards that say (we will stick with colleges as that was the story I read that prompted my question) if minority students want a POC only dorm that is fine but if whites wanted a whites only dorm that would be racist. If POC want events that are not to be attended by whites that is fine as long as the word racist doesn't get tossed at the events for whites only...lol. As IF that would happen. It is the hypocrisy and double standards that bother me... If you are saying that the hypocrisy only bothers the right wing then I have to say that I just don't get how ANYONE is ok with double standards.

The problems is that this is not a problem. There are plenbty of All white Dorms and all white events. This issue is being balloned way out of proportion.
The problem SHeila is that the right makes such a stink about this that if there is no racist intenet, the appearance of such is now evident.

if its ok for blacks to have a black only event, chinese to have chinese only event, muslims to have muslim only events, then its just as ok for whites to have a white only event. they are either all racist or all not racist, cannot pick and choose

We are becoming/have become Balkanized - an unfortunate and dangerous situation that breeds only further separation, distrust and violence. I believe that this "Balkanization" is being pushed mostly by minor but growing, radically racial, religious and political factions within our society. It does not bode well for our nation if this condition is permitted to continue unchecked. As for an answer to this problem, I wish I could say I have one that would/could peacefully resolve the matter. However, I don't. But solved it must be if our nation is to endure as the free Republic intended and blessed by God at our inception.

When Trump was saving young Mexican lives, jewish lives, celebrating heroes, and fighting for black and jewish rights, not to mention creating thousands of jobs, what was Obama doing?

Snorting coke, hanging out with doemstic terrorists, and sitting in a racist church. But he is handsome, well spoken, and appears reserved.. so its ok.

That is silly. People's reactions to having a president they don't agree with is sad. The right has had one for 8 years we didn't agree with. So now it is the left's turn and you would think the freaking world was ending. The country is trashed. Yea. trashed by very LOW unemployment. trashed by tax cuts. trashed how exactly?

You can have a whites only event if you want. It would just make you look petty though. I don't understand why it is so difficult for people to understand that these events are created for people that feel excluded by the media, history books, and general society. White straight males have a strangle hold on all facets of our society...the media, government, what we read in our history books, etc... why is it necessary to create an event in opposition to one that welcomes and makes others feel like they belong to a community?

The problem is that when these exlusionary groups are created, it is a form of hypocrisy. The people that create them push and strive for equal representation on thw one hand, then on the other, they create exclusive groups. Cant have it both ways. Minorities SHOULD be included in all... as necessary and appropriate. For example, if a certain group is 5% of the population, why expect greater numbers than that be represented?
If they do something notable, include them in history books. Im all for it. But to celebrate every black guy, for example, that ever painted a picture is silly. And frankly condescending.

It's not a form of hypocrisy. Minority groups are oppressed in all facets of society. Laws specifically are often created to target a particular group and there are countless examples of gay and people of color being erased from history books. We often have to work twice as hard to be considered on the same level of a mediocre counterpart. That is how our society is constructed. If you are a straight, white male, you aren't going to fully understand what I'm describing.

These groups are created because they are oppressed. Period. Whites control every facet of American society so why are people so pressed to break down the few things we have to claim as our own?

"Laws specifically are often created to target a particular group"

Examples? Im not arguing with you (yet :) but Im pretty sure laws have not been discriminatory in quite some time. The word "often" jumps out at me too.

"there are countless examples of gay and people of color being erased from history books"
Michaelangelo, Rock Hudson, John Maynard Keynes, Da Vinci, Walt Whitman. That's just off the top of my head. How many countless others are there that have not been excluded because of their preference. Or is it that you want them included BECAUSE of their preference?

I have no doubt that there are gay people that have been erased from the books. But Im sure there are even more straight people erased.

"We often have to work twice as hard to be considered on the same level of a mediocre counterpart."

That is absurd. If anything, in day to day life, minorities are given a pass to a certain extent. I think that is part of the problem when you see others complain about the exclusive groups. I can tell you in my office, dealing with HR, minorities are handled with kid gloves due to concern for lawsuits over discrimination. Now, I cant say it has affected anything. Everyone pretty much goes about their day to day life, but IF some wanted to take advantage, they could where a member of the majority would not get the same amount of patience. Now, I know it hasnt always been that way but it is in this day and age.

You can find countless stories of minorities getting special treatment in job placement, college entrance, etc. I personally know of times where white men and minority men took exams for civil service and the lower-scoring minorities were given the positions in order to simply hire more minorities. So, there is a good job, with good benefits and a pension going to someone that, really, didnt deserve it as much as the other guy. For what? Reparations?

In the past few decades at least, our society has bent over backwards to accomodate minorities.

An that is fine. Hey, Im all for it. But minorities want to erase all the lines between everyone, and we are doing it, why go create groups to keep yourself separate.

There was one guy giving you hell. Be a conservative. EVERYONE gives us hell. As far as institutionalized racism it is in favor of minorities these days. Affirmative action in college aps, quotas and the chance of being sued for not hiring the POC in business. Same with Gays. I hated how y'all were treated back in the day. But who is doing it now? YOU guys.You have become what you hated. You are now the ones saying you WILL accept me and my life and you will not DARE speak your mind about it. That is wrong. You do you. That is fine. But why do I (or anyone else) have to cheerlead your life? I don't hate anyone who is gay. My feelings are very mixed. I have gay friends (oh I know there she goes) who I love dearly. But I am not going to a party at their home because I don't think that lifestyle is what God (as I read Him) wants for us. And that is MY choice. their friends call me names for that. What side is the hate on??

Why is that absurd? It makes total sense. Being a white, Christian in the US has privlidge where as a legal immigrant of different ethnicity and religion in the US does not... Pretending there isn't an issue is not a resolution...
