A majority of white Americans believe they face discrimination of one kind or another in contemporary America, according to a new poll.
A poll published this week by NPR specifically revealed that a 55 percent majority of white Americans feel that “there is discrimination against white people in America today.”
The poll also found that 19 percent of white Americans said they’d been subject to discrimination while applying for work, 13 percent said they had while pursuing promotions in the workplace, and 11 percent said they had while applying to or studying at college.
To be clear, any white (or Asian) American who’s lost out on a job opportunity or a chance to study at a college because of affirmative action has indeed been discriminated against — because institutional decisions based on an individual’s skin color are inherently discriminatory and racist.
Speaking with NPR about his own beliefs regarding the discrimination faced by whites, 50-year-old equipment operator Tim Musick, a white man, noted as well the implicit bigotry of claims that all white people are racist — a claim touted frequently by the liberal media.
“I think that you pretty much, because you’re white, you’re automatically thrown into that group as being a bigot and a racist and that somehow you perceive yourself as being more superior to everybody else, which is ridiculous,” he said. “I’m just a man that happens to have been born white.”
“It can be reasonably argued that anti-white discrimination began rising dramatically during the administration of former President Barack Obama, who injected his radical, Alinskyite brand of identity politics into every issue.
From throwing his support behind Black Lives Matter to making premature judgments in the Michael Brown police shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, and the Trayvon Martin shooting in Sanford, Florida, Obama governed from the perspective that black people are always the victims and whites always the oppressors.
This skewed, racist perspective seemed to metastasize across the nation during his tenure, to the point that we now see similar attitudes in Hollywood, in the liberal media and especially on college campuses.
We now have Latina students demanding white women stop wearing hoop hearings, college professors actively ranking prospective students on the basis of their race and minorities reportedly assaulting white students who engage in so-called “cultural appropriation.”
And don’t even get me started on the numerous colleges that have chosen to lecture white students on their alleged white privilege, or allow their minority students to make patently racist presentations on how, for instance, “White people are a Plague to the Planet.”
These are just a few examples. Honestly, it would take me days to compile a comprehensive list of the anti-white attitudes and behaviors commonly seen these days across the nation.
Let me just say, though, that as a minority, I agree with the 55 percent majority of white Americans who feel that “there is discrimination against white people in America today.” But I would take it further, in that I contend contemporary whites suffer bigotry, discrimination and racism.
You know, growing up, I was taught to judge individual people by their individual attitude, behavior and character. These days, however, I see kids being brainwashed by mainstream actors/actresses, mainstream newspapers/magazines and even college faculty into believing the exact opposite.
It’s a sad state of affairs, as well as a reason for why Martin Luther King Jr., a real civil rights activist who dedicated his life to genuine equality and racial harmony, must be rolling in his grave.
