Response to Capt. Obvious (Original post)

6. So true. Some whites think they are the truly oppressed.

This is a true story.

A white male I knew got a job working for the Seattle Public Library a few years ago, at the Queen Anne branch. About two weeks after he started working there, he heard about a supervisor position opening up, so he applied for the job. The job was offered to a middle aged black woman who had worked there for six years.

So my acquaintance complained that the reason he did not get the supervisors job was that he was discriminated against because he is white and she is black.

I pointed out that she had six years experience working there while he had only two weeks, and his reply is that she is black and he is white, and that alone is proof of discrimination against white people.
