Damn, I Wish I Weren’t White . . .

A Washington Examiner headline, “Poll shows hiring managers discriminating against white men” caught my eye this morning. It comes at a time when being a White man seems a little unpopular. But is it fair? If the Black percentage of the population is around 13 percent, doesn’t that mean they should have about 13 percent of the jobs?

In the 2015-2016 television season, 74.6 percent of roles for cable scripted shows went to white actors, whilst 13.3 percent went to black actors, and just 2.6 percent to Asian actors.” Okay, this seems about right, or does it?

The majority of TV newsroom employees in the United States in 2020 were white, with African American staff and Hispanic and Latino employees making up less than 25 percent of the total. The survey projected that the share of Hispanic and Latino employees would increase slightly in 2021 but the forecasted percentage remains under 13 percent.” Somebody works with the same math I do.

  Officials and administrators, public administration..............................      720     52.6      13.0         
    Administrators, protective services............................................       54     25.3      13.3    Inspectors and compliance officers, except construction............................      247     36.4      14.4

And, I can keep going down the list. The end column at the far right is the percentage of Black people in that occupation. Don't take my word for it, follow the link above to go to the actual data page. My point is Black people actually populate our workforce in some very good numbers. Add professional sports players and entertainers figures to this and I believe you will find that Black people have a bunch of the good paying jobs, exceeding the 13 percent  discussed above.

Now, we go and turn the apple-cart upside down because folks out there are making their living off of racism telling people that are too lazy a bunch of lies and unfairly taking jobs from the White man. I find this offensive as fuck!

I have never taken any opportunity away from anybody. Never owned a slave. Don't care what color your skin is. And, I have never taken the food off another mans table based on the color of his skin. Corporate America is afraid off the Black man, so instead of doing the right thing and ensuring that their hiring practices are color-blind, they turn around and do the opposite and create a new racial issue.

Listen up folks . . . We are where we are today because folks are making money off racism, and we keep letting them do it. It's not hard to recognize men as equals and if you can mature enough to be color-blind most issues will resolve themselves. Folks out there that can't mature to that level, are the problem. They come in all colors and they aren't helping nobody, but themselves at our expense. Corporations, Politicians, Government is so busy trying to make new racial issues that they can't see they are the problem. If they would have treated men as equals a long time ago, we would be in a much better place today . . . 

“Racism Against White People”

This is a topic not discussed very much, but is a very serious concern. Why? Because the current society opinion does not support White America. Allow me to explain: (This was the topic of Fox News)

Throughout my life I have supported equality of everyone and coming from the wrong side of the tracks and being in a low-income family rarely did I ever experience “white privilege” or any other form of favoritism. But as an adult I felt the opposite in the form of “equal opportunity employment”. This is the law that allowed people less qualified to be employed at a job to be hired for that job based on the color of their skin. The first thing you have to understand about such law, is it does not effect those that wrote it. Those that have white privilege still have it. The reality of the situation is that white privilege is based on wealth and unwealthy whites do not have it.

Every new policy, law, or program intended to provide equality for Black America does one thing. It takes from support of the Unwealthy White. Do you think these new laws and such affect those of White Privilege? Not in any way! I do not know if any kind of support was available to my mother when I was a child, but I remember a party being held for me in elementary school in which my fellow students provided me gifts of socks and underwear because I didn’t have any. The reality that such a party could be held embarrassed me my entire life. Within a year or two, students participating in this party would tell others about it leading to issues later. Programs for the benefit of any of us should benefit all of those in need. Did I grow up with White Privilege? No!

Throughout my entire adult life, I have supported equality. I have not committed acts of violence against any person other than in self-defense or defense-of-others and never based upon skin color. I have never owned, pimped, or enslaved anyone of any color. I have never taken advantage of, ripped off, or profited in the exploitation of anyone of any color. Yet I have been victim of such when befriending others of color. Why? Because people of color are raised believing the difference in skin color is the problem. They fail to recognize the economics involved.

One of the first things I hear Black people complaining about is being followed by store security. It doesn’t just happen to Blacks. As a lower-income-youngster, I also enjoyed this type of harassment. Later when working store security as an adult I developed my own reasoning for whom to pay attention to not based on skin color. The result was more attention to Blacks, but not due to skin color. In each incident some other factor was the cause. Even today, be White and homeless and walk into a store, see if you get more attention than others.

The point I am trying to make is every complaint of racism nobody actually looks at it as though the same situation does occur to Whites. Lack of employment, educational opportunity, and even housing are boundries enjoyed by all, except those affluent enough to get through such.

We come to today when everybody is woke. Woke means to make me pay for the wrongs of others. Like I previously mentioned: I have never owned, pimped, or enslaved anybody regardless of skin color. Neither did my father. And, his father fought for the North during the Civil War. I have always been woke to equality. White America doesn’t know how to handle this. I do! Quit using skin color as an excuse. Educate yourself, that Washington Post database that says Blacks are 13 percent of the population but are treated poorly more than Whites is a lie. It doesn’t tell you that in the communities that the problems are the actual population of Blacks is around 25 to 45 percent, and in certain cities even higher. Whites are killed more than any other race, but the database doesn’t calculate the killings per police data.

If you truly want for equality, mature beyond skin color. Recognize there are good and bad of all colors amongst us and deal with such accordingly. And most important of all, quit making the White Race of today your enemy. I am not responsible for the acts of a man committed before I was even born. Recognize that the progress made thus far in equality have not been solely supported by any minority. White men from the onset have supported and given even their lives in furtherance of equality. Quit making policy, law, or organization specific to race. Doing so only fosters racism. Such should be developed Soley to serve a need not skin color. Become color-blind, it really isn’t that hard to do. Just remember all men are created equal and forget skin color.
