“And as one who lived in detroit would it not have been better if there had not been a white flight, taking jobs and education so a situation like your would not have to happen? I find it funny whites complain about detroit but have no interest in their role in it”
“And as one whose ancestors weren't here you are no more deserving of you white privilege, and yet I bet you have used it often”

“Please explain what my white privilege is...
My skin is olive colored.
what have I taken advantage of?
Here is what I have been in my life.
Since early teens I grew my hair VERY long.
I got a bunch of tattoo.
I got continuously harassed by the police my whole life even to the point of being brutally attacked.
I was unable to get a job at the big three in detroit while all of my female, and black friends did just that. I grew up in the city so most of my friends were black.
I ended up working on a brick crew 12 hours per day for 8 years as a laborer and for 4 more as a brick layer. My body was so destroyed that I had to stop working. I lived in bed for two years as a result and lived off of my life savings.
Then I taught myself all about computers and got in with a genomics company and worked my way to the top. lived well for 15 years and now I lost everything again due to the fact that Im dying from a rare disorder.
life is been grand, and ohhh the privileges that I have taken advantage of.”
“You mean like all the white republicans in office or the CEO's?”

“what do you think only republicans are CEO-- obamas job czar Jeffery immelt the CEO of GE -- Eric Schmidt Obama wanted him as a business czar CEO of google and offshores billions -- now tell me when have you ever heard a republican say "YOU OWE ME "”
“Reparations was given to the japanese families of the those interned during WW2, and indentured servants where such to pay off debt or get a lighter prison sentence, what did the africans do to deserve slavery?”

“I have personally known a number of people of color that have worked for Tiffany's, and everyone of them loved the company. That being said I was forewarned to be careful of the store you work in as managers vary, some are nice and others are monsters.”
Joyce Thomas on Jun 2, 2014 at 07:52:55
“How many of these people of color were African American and how many were in management? The alleged issue was the idea of blacks representing the company brand. White Cubans and Asians might not have the same problem.”

“Now why are you telling a bald face? The article clearly says that the man was the only black manager for the last 20 years. The article relates to Management, not employees. So stop the lies.”
Notice that the women have been fighting since the 15th cenutry and as military they were entitled to property. There is a wealth of information out there about women and the role they played beyond staying home and birthing babies, sorry to say but that is a white male lie to enforce women as beneath men.”

“Have to add: this is a great article. And going way back the Queen of Sheba was Ethiopian and supposedly visited King Solomon in Israel. There are stories that she outwitted him during a riddle contest.”

“You don't have to be concerned, but you are being judged and have the nerve to get upset over it, that watch clearly doesn't convey power, it conveys being duped. Also $1500 for a watch is nice but in the world of high end it is a gumball.”
lmclaurin on May 31, 2014 at 08:56:21
“Do you see my constant references to the $1500 watch as semi-expensive? Furthermore, duped implies you were tricked. I knew what I was buying and what I could afford. You simply have not gotten that nobody was "judged" over a watch. You seem to be unable to disconnect the watch from the scenarios for some very strange reason. You seem to not understand that in neither situation, nobody knew anything about this watch. You then argue that $1500 watch is too expensive and really not that expensive at the same time?
Reading comprehension has taken a dive in this country.”
“HAHAHA, my mother never said any such thing. And a pregnancy is not an expression of love and beauty look and all the teens popping kids out today. By definition of the word parasite until a fetus become viable it is parasitic, sorry you are in denial, just because women love their kids doesn't make it any less true”
“You called it racist not me, and the fact that you can't fathom a history before what whites claim as such is racist in and of itself. Your comments mentioned you don't know (or believe) in a time when women were revered most who would make that comment would be ignorant (often by choice) of other cultures. I saw the picture and to me it fits, whites tend to have a defined timeline of history and anything that goes against it must be wrong.”

“I'm sorry that I'm not as knowledgeable as you want me to be. You could have contributed to the conversation in a less negative way by giving me some information about these things you seem to know instead of just putting me down. I would have been interested. Why don't you share some of your knowledge about this?”
“Those incredible numbers wouldn't be applying for jobs anyway the focus as to remain on those that would and the fact they aren't getting hired”
IMnN32 on May 30, 2014 at 16:50:46
“Are you seriously saying we shouldn't focus on illiterate African Americans and should instead worry about those that are college educated?? To me the biggest problem isn't a black college student who takes awhile to find a job. It would be the chronically unemployed individual who can't read, and doesn't even have a chance to be productive in society!!!”
“Stats for whites in the 1960's are better than AA's ever, (sorry but you made a really stupid argument there). Single-parent households can be disadvantaged but no guarantee, I was raised by a single father and my brother and I both are successes in life (not by huge margin, but we certainly aren't poor). Funny you made the claim about 2 incomes are many (especially conservatives) believe a woman needs to stay at home, and to build a family unit that is strong takes both sides, not just blaming single mothers”
“We have a dislike due to the fact many of those Caribbeans are very white washed, the history of slavery they went through was far different than ours. They don't have the reasons to hate or not trust whites like we do, so they believe white lies about us, but they don't want to learn the history. Many learn the hard way and eventually come around”
“Are you claiming I don't work hard and earn my success? The point is whites in america do in fact favor non-american blacks over american, they like the keep your head down don't point out the obvious that we american blacks will never let them get away with.”
