OMG: Since racism is starting to run rampant on this site, this article might be of some interest: http://thoughtcatalog.com/tamie-dolny/2014/06/racism-runs-deep-and-rampant-throughout-college-campuses/

  1. When it comes to this site, I think it's more that anonymity breeds stupidity

  2. Thoughtcatalog is the worst. Alongside Buzzfeed and Upworthy, they just guilt you into clickbait content

  3. Disagree with the article when its comes to the Humanities/Sciences divide. Plus I think this person doesn't know many asian people.

  4. While this article was stupid, and its fucking 2014 so racism is a non-issue (but people always want to be the victim for something), it was nice to see an article that wasn't all about the destructive White Devil.

    1. You're a huge idiot for thinking racism is a non issue because its 2014. People lose faith in humanity because of ignorant crickets like you.

    2. People who say that racism no longer exists are probably the biggest problem, even more than openly racist people. Open your eyes and learn about the world.

    4. Yeah I'm for real.

      Give me one actual example of the institutionalized racism everyone claims to exist.

      "Oh what about hate crimes" you'll say, well violent crimes happen to every race, and are perpetrated by every race. Its not racism, its crazy fucking lunatics and by calling it "racism" and organizing useless rallies to cry and make white people feel guilty about it won't fix shit.

    5. @4.d. recent study from Canada (as reported in the Globe, because it's easier to read, but I've read the paper, too) that shows the callback rate for identical resumes is 35-40% lower if the resumes have an "ethnic" name instead of an English one: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/careers/how-an-ethnic-sounding-name-may-affect-the-job-hunt/article555082/

    6. @ 4.d. this article in general might be of interest, too: http://slatestarcodex.com/2013/04/20/social-justice-for-the-highly-demanding-of-rigor/

    7. Not racism, people just don't want to hire foreign sounding people.

      Plus, even the minorities showed the discrimination. Even other niggers know that niggers make shit employees.

    8. And might the reason they don't want to hire foreign sounding people be racism? Or perhaps, xenophobia?

    9. so basically the white guy that yelled "hey you love me long time" when i was walking home from campus did so with the best, most genuine of intentions did he, and not because i'm "yellow"...? ok

    10. 'Even other niggers know that niggers make shit employees.'

  5. The author of this article sounds so self absorbed. She's writing like a novelist in an article.

    Also what's so racist about realizing that there is a divide between people? So Asian's tend to study more and white people tend to make the majority of arts programs.

    People stick with their own race because it's what they know. It's easier to make a personal connection to someone from the same cultural background.

    This isn't racist, its just having your eyes open.

    People need to stop getting their panties in a knot over stupid shit.

  7. Trigger warning: Generalizations and frank racial dialogue.

    White people, like the author of this piece, have been subjected to ruthless social programming over the past several decades. This programming tells them that as a white person they posses tremendous power, and it is their solemn duty to abdicate that power to the various minorities who live in awe of them. It's a fascinating cocktail of good intentions and narcissism.

    Essays like what the OP posted are written when this social programming meets reality. The author cannot fathom that there is a racial minority (Asians) that doesn't perceive her to have the power she's been told her entire life she wields. Not only that, they don't try to associate with her, they don't live in awe of her, and in fact they look down on her (e.g. “But you’re just so … white!”). Her sheltered pre-University existence never prepared her for such a thing.

    The author's retelling of her conversations with fellow white people represents her attempt to reconcile this reality with her social programming. White people still have the power because they're the popular ones, she says. White people still have the power because they're more sexually desirable, she says. White people still have the power because they organize the social events, she says. Of course, this is all just a defense mechanism to protect the author from the anxiety-inducing realization that white people don't have any power at all, anymore.

    1. ^In short. White people should stop thinking of themselves as entitled little bitches. Other hard working people are taking over now.

    4. Since when did it become so cool to have blatant hate for white people? Why take every excuse to bitch about it?

  8. The thing about racism, is it will always be there. It will be there for every skin colour. It is actually no different when a person prefers a person based off their outfit over another.. this is, unfortunately, how the mind works. Puts things in boxes based off passed experiences and likeness. When it becomes a true problem is when secularism is established by a society, and one group has their rights taken away.

    However, there will be those that are not ignorant, and not see the truth of our limitless diversity. And to try to make someone else not ignorant, is ignorance itself.
