Retroactive blaming: Poem by 'racist' Rudyard Kipling scrubbed off UK university wall
Hypersensitivity about racial issues has contributed to the dumbing down of America and other English-speaking countries.

Texas waiter fakes 'racist' receipt to get sympathy
Three cases of fake claims of racism are presented in this short news clip. There doesn't seem to be much of a question that almost all claims of racism alleged by blacks against whites are fake. However, racist incidents perpetrated by blacks against whites are vastly under-reported.

Tucker: Left thinks racism against white people impossible
Most racists these days are Black. Of course, they insist that it's impossible for them to be racist. Hypocrisy! The truth is that anyone can be the victim of racism and anyone can be racist. There are no exemptions. Possibly one percent of Whites are racists, but it's pretty common to hear Blacks (and other minorities) make racist statements and there is a huge amount of Black on White crime, much of it motivated by racial hatred.

Racism most definitely affects whites. In the '70's I was turned down by many employers because I was white and was told they had to hire minorities to make their quota. I remember how bad racism was when I was a boy and Kennedy was president; but about the time he got shot it began to turn 180 degrees. Two wrongs don't make a right. I think when Obama was president the pendulum finally reached a crescendo and is now swinging the other way. Makes me wonder; why can't we just find a happy medium and keep it there? Everything seems to go from one extreme to the other; but does it really have to be that way?

'#Cancelwhitepeople': NYT new tech editor faces backlash over tweets, what's newspaper's response?
Hypocrisy is alive and well and so is racism against White people. Now that there are almost no White people who are racist, apparently it's now alright to be racist against White people. Backwards? Dysfunctional? Hypocritical? Straight out stupid? There's definitely a double-standard here!

sandman: No doubt that there's a double-standard. White people get fired for the tiniest little thing, but other people get second, third, fourth, etc. chances. Also White people must be fully qualified to get hired, but other people can be pathetically unqualified and still get a job. Racism will end when everyone is treated according to the same standards!

CNN's Don Lemon is Imagining Things!
When Obama says "monkeying around" it's okay, but when a white politician says the same thing... OMG... it's racism!
Imaginary racism is alive and well!!! :laugh:
