If you really believe in the founding principle of this nation, that "All men are created equal", should it matter who is in the majority or minority?
should it matter who is in the majority or minority? Ask Oprah

Can we just get some honest feelings about the article please? Liberals stay the fukc out of it and go play your bongos and sex up your hairy girlfriends.
I'm glad you believe all of that Biblically proclaimed "bullshit", as I believe you called it...

From a right wing, God fearing, motivated white man I will tell you this, Jesus told me to love my neighbor, I'm not going to be prejudiced. If I've been denied a job because of a minority, I blame the system, not the individual. Let's face it, Jesus loved people, but he wasn't always too keen on the government of the time. Furthermore, if whites become the minority, then maybe you'll be happy when they start denying the majority (blacks, hispanics, wutevs) and start hiring more of the unqualified minority (whites). Hmmmm... that sounds like something... *cough* *democrat* *cough*

O.K. Here is who I am. I have worked in a largely black community as a cop for a very long time. If I truly had prejudice in my heart and acted out said heartfelt prejudices I wouldn't have lasted two minutes. I have gained much respect in the community I serve by people of all races.

What I am trying to say is that the system is fucked up. Whites tried to overcompensate for what some of the minorities had gone through which is how we came up with affirmative action programs. Do you think that say, black people, or hispanic people, or Asian people, if they were in the majority would be as "generous" so to speak, toward the whites?

If this census estimate were reality today, how do you believe you would be affected? Hypothetically.

Cop humor:

A man, having applied to join the police force, is being interviewed.

The Inspector says 'Your qualifications are first-class but there is one test that you must pass before I can recruit you.'

Sliding a small bag across the desk, he continues 'Take this gun, go out and shoot six illegal immigrants and a rabbit.'

The man says 'Why the rabbit?'

'Fantastic attitude!' says the inspector. 'When can you start?'

LAWL! I had the same thought as I was reading this!!! I can be a cop now!!!

As far as your previous post, I wouldn't expect them to offer white people a version of "Affirmative Action" tailored to them, nor would I want it. People who suck at jobs shouldn't have them. Period. Regarless of gender, race, etc... I was implying that this new "Affirmative Action" would be a big time democratic thing (trying to make everyone equal and be fair...blah blah blah), and that the republican thing would be to say that we are going to rise up and prove our worth. The ideal situation that I would want would be for there to be NO special programs, which, if the minorities became majorities (and obama doesn't get elected), would be a possibility.

P.S. Congrats for doing your job well. I'd like you too.

I do not think this would have any effect on me, for the following reasons...

#1 This article is not saying that there will be fewer whites that ANY other racial/ethnic division, just fewer whites than EVERY other racial/ethnic division. There will still be more whites than there are any other individual race or ethnic division, and thus whites will still be dominant.

#2 Even in places where whites are in the minority it seems like they still end up running things and getting blamed for oppressing the other races. Form your own opinions as to why that happens.

#3 affirmative action rarely, if ever, happens in my profession.

#4 I'm already a minority in the community I live in.
