1. Anyone who ever thought they would

 

Anyone who ever thought they would get a good job because they were white was and remains a complete moron.

I would love to know where this vast population of white folks that think they get jobs because they are white come from.

I don't know about other white people but i was always taught it was hard work and preparation that got you the job you wanted.

The idea that people think they are due a job because they are white sounds like utter fantasy made up by someone who isn't white to make themselves feel better.

There is no question there is plenty of racism out there but these wild accusations that people think they are owed a job because they are white sound like nonsense to me.

Getting a job has always been a competition , you have to be the best candidate for the job. Now if you want to say white people are more likely to be hired than equally qualified people of color I am completely on board.

You lose me when you start pretending white people think they are owed a good job because they are white.
