Is that actually a thing; being told to be "less white"? Yes, Coca-cola have recently been in the news for telling their employees to "be less white" in one of their training courses. https://www.newsweek.com/coca-cola-facing-backlash-says-less-white-learning-plan-was-about-work...

Ironpony has asked a perfectly good question. I'm sorry, but he did not. It's not a matter of total points on some kind of global scoreboard. It's about the way how life is affected for real people in real places in real contexts. Toadsnail, it is disingenuous for your side of this debate to appeal...

If this is true though, then why do people in the US complain about white privilege, if other races have their privileges all over the world. Doesn't it all even out then, and therefore why complain about white privilege, when it all evens out all over the world? If there's a colony on Mars where b...

Take it up with Fnord, then. He is clearly talking about Peggy McIntosh: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peggy_McIntosh The Wikipedia article is incorrect. Unfortunately I don't have time right now to go to a library and dig up old civil rights periodicals to find earlier instances of the term "...

The people who developed white privilege were white people. The person who first codified "White Privilege" was a white woman with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Radcliffe (Summa Cum Laude in English), a Master of Arts degree from Harvard, and a Philosopher's Degree from Harvard. Her occu...

He comes across as just another racist, sexist, homophobic, wealthy white male.[/color] What a lot of adjectives you've strung together there. Well done! Are you a white male yourself? If you could let us know your ethnic background, I'm sure you won't mind people making reference to it occasionall...

1. The fact that the media and academia constantly say that white privilege is real, and bad, and needs to be tackled is self-contradictory. If white privilege was as real as the media and academia says it is, then the media and academia would not be allowed to say what they do about it. 2. The idea...

I find all too often, more neurotypicals than aspies engage in ad hominem attacks (that is, attacking a specific poster not for his/her opinions or arguments, but because he/her is the author). Is there any statistical data to support this observation, and if it is correct, why do they love ad homi...

If you were taught X is true, but learned through experience Y is true, ideally you'll change your opinion to Y is true. If people find out you once said X is true, but Y is the more accepted answer, and people try to "cancel culture" you because of your former opinion, you can just say &...

I think it is dangerous to blame Islamism on French Islamophobia. Islamism is an issue, to varying extents, in a large number of countries - including some where Islam is the state religion. And of course, the vast majority of French Muslims are not Islamists. While there is certainly a place for l...

... ... Thanks, that makes sense. I read it as meaning it could be the start of people being treated that way again rather than saying it is currently the same. OutsideView, you were right to read it that way. League Girl and Jiheisho are getting offended by what they're being told to feel offended...

Anything posted in The Daily Mail is simply not worth reading; hence, any arguments based on an article posted in The Daily Mail is insupportable and also not worth reading. Ok, so that's an admission that you didn't read the article that you were supposed to be responding about. I'm sure that's no...

More tabloid nonsense. Since when has Socialism of any kind ever been a "threat" to France? Judging by the content and the timing of your response, you clearly didn’t read the article before posting this. I doubt you even read Brictoria’s opening post. The article is not really about any ...

Link to Omar thread - there are more people defending her than I remember: https://wrongplanet.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=373282 I don't think either case should distract from the other. Omar said something antisemitic, and she was completely wrong to do so. Greene said something antisemit...
