To be white...

Got this in an e-mail... and I agree... but of course it's not quite as simple as all that. Today, it is a commonly held belief that everyone is born equal. It wasn't always so, hence the organizations pushing for rights for a certain group. Also, when you are a minority, you tend to like to try do things with others like you. But yeah... it does end up being ridiculous.

Eventually, certain organizations do end up being obsolete or losing their "raison d'être." Kind of like women's rights groups in Canada and the US. You can ridicule heterosexual men in public, but woe to anyone who touches a woman or a homosexual. Women's rights infringe on men's rights. Feminist's rights infringe on traditional women's rights. We prefer the working, career woman with only one or two kids to the stay-at-home mom who has 4 or more. The career woman gets more support than the one who stays home. Better tax breaks too, and in Québec, inexpensive daycare (albeit hard to find, inexpensive daycare).

It is more honorable to care for other people's children than to stay home and care for your own. And if you read the liberal newspapers, at least once or twice a year (especially around March 8) you can read the common point of view that feminists have towards stay-at-home moms; that is to say, we are really ignorant and need to educate ourselves on the dangers of letting ourselves be dependant on anyone, or else we are just stubborn religious extremists who don't want to understand. Yeah, I'm being hard on feminists today. Sorry, I'm not really targeting all of you. Just the extremist ones.

How many are actually paying attention to this?
There are African Americans,
Mexican Americans,
Asian Americans,
Arab Americans,
Native Americans, etc...
And then there are just - Americans.

You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction.
You Call me 'White boy,'
'Cracker,' 'Honkey,'
'Whitey,' 'Caveman,' ...
And that's OK.

But when I call you Nigger,
Kike, Towel head,
Sand-nigger, Camel Jockey,
Beaner, Gook, or Chink...
You call me a racist.

You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you,
so why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?

You have the United Negro College Fund.
You have Martin Luther King Day.
You have Black History Month.
You have Cesar Chavez Day.
You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi.
You have the NAACP.
And you have BET.

If we had WET (White Entertainment Television),
We'd be racists.

If we had a White Pride Day,
You would call us racists.

If we had White History Month,
We'd be racists.

If we had any organization for only whites to 'advance' OUR lives,
We'd be racists.

We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce,
a Black Chamber of Commerce,
and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce.
Wonder who pays for that?

If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships,
You know we'd be racists.

There are over 60 openly-proclaimed Black-only Colleges in the US,
yet if there were 'White-only Colleges',
THAT would be a racist college.

In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights.
If we marched for our race and rights,
You would call us racists.

You are proud to be black,
brown, yellow and orange,
and you're not afraid to announce it.
But when we announce our white pride,
You call us racists.

You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us.
But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member
or beats up a black drug-dealer
who is running from the LAW and posing a threat to ALL of society,
You call him a racist.

I am proud.
But, you call me a racist.

Why is it that only whites can be racists?

And why is it only men can be criminals? Politically correct people would have us believe that few women are capable of violence, and that most violence stems from men. And yet if you look at statistics, (and forgive me, I am just recalling form memory something I read in some article and can't link to it, cause I don't know where it was anymore so look up statistics yourself or take my word on it - cause I'm too busy - err, lazy - to look it up myself), women actually have a higher incidence of violence towards their children than men do, and violence in lesbian couples is actually not all that uncommon. But get this, if a woman commits an act of violence, it is "oh the poor woman, she must have had such an unhappy abused childhood." If a man commits an act of violence, he's a bastard.

Yeah,... I'm doing it again... got a one-track mind today.
