I agree with Bill O'Reilly 100% on this one! What the "commentator" is asking for was granted and then some way back in the 1960s, but to take advantage of the opportunity requires work. And effort on the part of the so-called "oppressed" is lacking and all they want is hand outs!


I don't have any problem with each vote counting. I only have a problem with people saying Trump doesn't deserve to be president because he didn't win the popular vote. Had the popular vote been the rule before hand, Trump wouldn't have had to hop on his plane and visit every county in Timbuktu and could have focused on the major population areas in his campaign; and also my vote in California would have counted. I also think abolishing the electoral college would help bring the races closer together because politicians would be campaigning everywhere and not ignoring the states they have no chance in.

surfsteve: Of course we can't change the rules after the fact and there's no point because then we'd be stuck with someone even worse than Trump, which seems improbably, but that's the cards we were dealt this time around. Just the same, the electoral college is outdated and should be scraped. Next time we have a presidential election, we should just go with a popular vote.

It may be outdated but we can not survive simply using a popular vote system.

This whole White Privilege gimmick is just a weak attempt to manipulate whites into feeling guilty for having worked hard to make this country great. We should feel nothing but pride for what we've accomplished. We live in the greatest country on the planet and that's no small accomplishment. For all the leaches who want handouts, all I've got to say is GET TO WORK! The world doesn't owe you anything and the only person you can blame at this point in history for your own failures is yourself. Learn that lesson and you'll have a chance to catch up to the rest of us.

White Privilege is a myth and it's a very dangerous myth. Most people have worked very hard to earn what they have and pretending that some people have an unfair advantage based on their skin color is a recipe for bad motivation. Anyone who can demonstrate competence will get ahead in our society. It's the people who want to get rewarded who haven't bothered developing a skill who are the actual problem and we should focus as a society on undoing the culture of entitlement. White privilege is just an excuse made by those who have not been responsible enough to become employable.

White Privilege is Rampant in Rural Canada
Something to think about. Why all this propaganda regarding the myth of white privilege? In this video the claim is made that it's to soften up rural populations to be more accepting of large influxes of immigrants from third world nations. Currently European nations are suffering greatly due to a tidal wave of dysfunctional immigrants from Islamic nations. Will North America be the next victim of this wave of immigration?

The closest thing to white privilege that exists is being smart enough to realize that no such thing exists. Those whites who believe in the fantasy of white privilege are privilege (intelligence) free.

It's Okay to be White :wtf:
All the sign said was "It's Okay to be White" and somehow that turns into a bunch of Social Justice Whiners having a massive hissy fit.

MojaveMike: It's the usual hypocrisy. They complain over small things and yet everyday they commit acts which are a hundred times more offensive.
