    In an attempt to perpetuate the myth that somehow people of color in this country are victims of white people, not only did this group intentionally segregate themselves by excluding white people, but they actually counted on white guilt to pay for their happy hour. Sadly, each donation by a white person only reinforces the irrational belief that current day minorities are victims and owed something by white people. This, my fellow board members, is minority privilege.

    Regarding reparations, who pays for it, the people who captured and sold slaves? What about the people, both black and white, who weren't in the country at the time and had nothing to do with slavery? Using common sense, how many people here received money from a crime victim fund for something that happened to their great-great-great grand parents?

    If an individual wants to pay reparations to minorities fine it is their money.

    So long as it is not tax dollars no problem and of course once they buy a drink for a minority person at this happy hour the reparations have been paid and that person has no moral or logical justification to ask for anything else. Not that they had any in the first place.

    In that sense I am in full support of this idiotic idea.

    A meme with no source is evidence of .........nothing.

    So much for challenging what someone calls a myth

    They will have to pry that money out of my cold dead hands.


    Think there’s racism now. Take money from one group who had zero to do with slavery and give to another.

    I dunno, man. If I'm buying drinks for someone, I expect a pretty girl coming home with me afterwards.

    That info-graphic only works on dumb people and here's four reasons why.

    #1 - Cops cant just walk up and search people, there has to be probably cause. The most common reason for a search in which drugs are discovered occurs as an incidental to an arrest. What that means is that a crime has already been committed. The message that info-graphic wants to convey is that Blacks are innocent but the fact it exists shows otherwise.

    #2 - The data behind that info-graphic and so many others comes from incident reporting, ie: the search was recorded because it resulted in illegal items being discovered. So again, it proves the very thing it suggests isn't happening.

    #3 - The first column is bullshit. How do we figure this? Simple. We take the census demographics and population count and plugin the 7/1000 and 45/1000 figures. I say we but I want you to do the work. I just did it and I'll give you a hint, the difference between White and Black is only 300,000 - a far cry from what the first column suggests. So basically ignore column one, its bullshit.

    #4 - This one is especially annoying because its effectiveness is an indicator of just how dumb people have become. A likelihood comparison between two vastly disproportionate figures (the White and Black populations) will usually always produce disproportionate values. This is indicative of nothing but most people have no idea why.

    Well, best of luck with this idea catching on.... I suspect it won't... And I don't know how bars roll in Portland Oregon, but I doubt $10 is going to get you very far... Maybe 2 beers (draft domestic) if you are lucky...

    I'll pay for your 40 acres and a mule, if you'll reimburse me for the wildly disproportionate costs your culture inflicts on welfare, justice and corrections systems

    I bet you'll end up owing me.

    He needs to explain how all the people getting free drinks were victimized by white or otherwise deserving of whites buying them something.

    It's a great idea if you own the bar and surrounded by guilty white people.

    Well.. read post 9. I just source how white people do way more drugs, while black people are sent to jail over this way more often.

    Is it?

    Frankly these 'gimme something' and 'the world owes us a living' ethnic and racial minority rump-holes can kiss my Italian-American ancestry butt.

    I’d probably make a trip to Portland and attend the party just to see how many forum members I can piss off:twisted:

    'White Privilege' is the myth made up by POC and self-loathing Whites to explain the overall comparative failure of black people........
