OMG: I would spend a lot of money to become a white person with a nice clean anglo name. Life would be so easy.

  1. Life is only better when you're white because white people are inherently better, from an evolutionary standpoint. That's why we're the dominant culture on this planet - the rest of you folks set yourself up for failure and screw up every opportunity we give you.

    2. You guys don't have culture.The things you guys are trying to adopt like feminism and all that bullshit to make up for it will kill you pretty soon.

      No thanks, I would prefer staying what I am.

    3. White people have culture. Unless you're suggesting that the following cultures don't exist:
      -Italian
      -German
      -British
      -French
      -Ukranian/Russian/Polish/Slav
      -Greek
      ...and many, many more. Not to mention the uniqueness of Canadian culture itself.

      I dunno about 1, but I'm not asking you to be anything other than what you are. Your culture is cool, too. But don't dismiss ours as nonexistent.

    4. There is no Canadian culture. It's a mix of different cultures and most of them hate each other.

      North American white people still have no culture.

      Delete
    5. 1d, if you really think that, then you haven't been paying very much attention to Canada.

      The presence of many different cultures is only one part of the Canadian identity. There is, without a doubt, a set of shared values, a common way of doing things, and a unity of experience that defines the Canadian culture, and its subtle variations from province to province. I actually find it quite beautiful.

      But I'm not the right person to talk at length about the nature of the Canadian identity. I recommend reading some of the books out there by much more educated people than myself, which discuss this interesting subject at some length.

  2. White guy with a last name you've never even heard of from a country that you most likely haven't heard of either speaking here:

    Grow up, get a grip on reality. As a society we've moved past such petty differences and if you think that it makes one difference, you're just making excuses for your failures, god knows I haven't had any problems.

    4. lol, except being a "white minority" puts you at an advantage.

      Every time I have a relationship its difficult to take to the next level because of what her parents might think.

      Or approaching white girls and them being fearful of you because your black.

      White dudes are like by all races of girls because of colonialism and mass media. My white friends are never hesitant in trying to pick up chicks of other races. Where as me, I need to deal with asians don't like black guys, or white girls don't like black guys, or brown girls don't like black guys.

    5. Dude in Toronto I have seen more Black guys with white girls (and not those fat ones) than even white guys themselves.

    6. 4d: That's bullshit. My first girlfriend was black and her parents fought us every step of the way. They didn't like her dating a white guy. As for the not insignificant portion of society that's still very close-minded about interracial relationships, she and I both bore the brunt of that pretty much equally.

  5. White guy with anglo name here. So far so good.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I hate to say it, but there may be some truth to OP's comment. I've heard employers are more likely to give an interview or job to someone with a name that's easier to pronounce or more "English".

    I've also noticed that most students who come from China adopt a "Canadian" name that they use here. Why is that? Is it because Canadians have a hard time with their birth names? It just kinda re-enforces to me that there is some benefit to having a more "anglo" name (even if it is the peace of not having people fuck up your name on a regular basis).

      Plenty of other studies out there. Having a white, male name has been called equivalent to about a 10-year experience difference.

    2. Yeah, I got an anglo name when I came to Canada since people never pronounced my birth name right. It gets tiring after a while to hear every variation of your name being said.

      Delete
    3. Well, it is Canada. I'm pretty sure if all of us anglo Canadians moved to China we would have a harder time getting interviews than the nationals as well.

  9. To be honest, I never really understoof racism and until people of different skin colour told me im inherently racist for being white because I'm majority. And it's weird, because I'm an immigrant :/ (and i dont even have an anglo name?!)

    So I don't know what's more racist... me apparently being automatically racist because I'm white.. or the person that told me I'm racist to her because I'm white?????

    1. The idea that you are inherently racist is absurd. That being said, denying White privilege is absurd.

      Go to google images. Search : "Male Model". Every search result will be a white person.

      White is the default for beauty.

      I was having sex with a white girl once, and you know what she said to me? "How does it feel fucking a white girl?".

      She also claimed to not be a racist.

      Delete
    2. Yes. I will not deny there is white privilege to a certain extent.. However, it's also easy to generalize. You will find the same privilege amongst the nationality in any foreign country. Like if me, as a white person lived in India, I would likely be discriminated because I am white. Again, easy to assume and generalize.

      I think Canada is a great example of a country that in incredibly inclusive to all skin colours, cultures etc. If you really look at the reality of racism, it's actually not any different than any other types of discrimination. Most discrimination is unconscious and part of our human condition.. the point of bringing awareness to it is to make what is unconscious, conscious; to essentially see the reality of sameness.

      Discrimination is EVERYWHERE though, and it will never cease to exist.. we wouldn't be able to [physically] survive is we didn't discriminate amongst people and objects. People that harshly denounce racism are discriminating as well if you think about it. However that doesn't mean we shouldn't continue bettering ourselves. We need to understand nature of discrimination as our condition but also see that it doesn't illustrate every situation clearly and from the basis of reality.

      About the "Male Model" search.. we have to see every reason why most models are white in the Google search. Just briefly, yes, one aspect may be because white is idealized... but it may also be because 'modelling as a profession' started in Europe. Plus, majority of the population in North America is still white which caters to the white population.

      And the girl you slept with just sounds stupid lol.

      Racism is very difficult to speak about I think... it's because it feeds our desire for drama. People want to be empowered, feel powerful and lower other people.. but the point is equality. We will never get equality though, because there never has been equality in any aspect of human's lives.. including with ourselves (through self-judgement).

      You sound like a great person but trust me, if you went to India you will be presented with a lot more opportunities than locals and people will automatically respect you more just because of the colour of your skin.

    4. In regards to the male model white privilege comment, you have to keep in mind that English is primarily spoken by white people, especially as the first language:

      UK: 87% white
      USA: 77% white
      Australia: 85-92% white
      New Zealand: 74%
      Canada: 77%

      Now imagine if you search Male Model in Chinese, or Punjabi. I'm sure you'll see almost all chinese/punjabi men.

      Delete
  10. But it's true to an extent. Introduce myself with my white name, I get remembered the next time those people see me; introduce myself with my Chinese name, they don't even commit my name or face to memory. And jobs, it's easier to get certain jobs with a white name. I also do not like being associated with my race because the majority of them are rude, and disrespectful. And then the white population associates all Chinese to be like the rest, a generalized prejudice. There are many different groups within the Chinese race, just like there are many groups with the white population. Should every white person be judged as a country hick for example.

    1. Well I think if you give me a Chinese name which is likely a name I've never heard, your name probably wouldn't connect to my memory well verses a popular name like 'John.' English names are still common in an English speaking country which would make it easier for an English "white" speaking person.

      I'd like to ask how you know your name makes it easier to get a job? Do you *know*, or are you just assuming because you don't have an Anglo name.

      In China I've been approached by strangers that took a photo of me without my permission because I'm white.. Life in China probably would have been easier for me if I was Chinese and had a Chinese name.

    2. If it is hard to pronounce in English then remembering it is hard.

      It is just the way our brains work (well, in an English speaking area).

      Delete
    3. To be fair, I think the fact that Chinese names tend to be monosyllabic and, when spoken without the proper changes in pitch, rather uniform, increases the frequency with which people forget them.

      Delete
  11. 100% truth - life would be easier if you had a "nice clean anglo name" in a predominately caucasian community. Those who think otherwise are naive or fools.

    The majority of employers favour candidates they can relate to and with whom they share social and cultural similarities.

    It's unpardonable, unfair and plain wrong but it is the world we live in.

    5. The government's really cut down on immigration compared to what it used to be. They haven't scaled it back *that* far, but they've made an effort to avoid letting just 'anyone' in.

      That said, our birth rate is still very low. Left to our own devices, our non-immigrant population is in decline. I see nothing wrong with pro-immigration policies to pick up the slack and keep us growing.

  13. buncha people preaching about how racism doesn't exist anymore or telling people to suck it up because it's not something they have to deal with on a daily basis. I feel bad for everyone who ever feels the need to change their name because white people can't take the time to try and pronounce things. i'm sure it's hard enough moving to a new country and learning a new language, you shouldn't have to give up your whole identity and it sucks that people feel they have to because we make them feel that way.

    1. racism exists and always will exist because ours minds are meant to discriminate! It's actually the prime function of our minds that has helped us survive. Of course people may be discriminated by their name.. but others may also be discriminated by the way they dress. So why are you saying discriminating against skin colour is worse that discriminating by the way someone looks? Some people find people more attractive in interviews and have a benefit of getting hired. Should a person who isn't attractive get plastic surgery to get a job like someone would change their name? Both are insane.

      Delete
    2. What do people expect when they move to a new country? If you're going to fit in, you're probably going to have to change some things to make things smoother for yourself.

      If I were to move to China, my anglo name would be hard for a lot of people to pronounce, so I would take on a chinese name.

      Of course moving to a new country and learning a new language is tough, but it's their choice to immigrate.

      If you think coming here now is hard, imagine our anglo ancestors who built this country in harsh winters and warring with the 6 Nations peoples (not that I condone what we did to them).

  17. It really doesn't help that members of ISIS are being found within Canada, and are targeting white people. But I guess thats what we get for saying we are multicultural and letting other cultures that hate Christians and pretty much every religion that isn't theirs into our country. If you are white and apply for a job in Brampton and the surrounding areas now, there is a slim chance you will actually be hired. That's why they call it Bramledesh now.

    3. What the fuck?? Have you even been to Brampton? I'm from there and if you go to the mall there are a fuckton of white people working there. Contrary to what most people think, Brampton is very multicultural and has a shit load of every type of race, INCLUDING white. It's just that they have a lot more minorities compared to most cities. But trust me you won't be turned down for being white unless you're applying to something like an Indian restaurant where you need to speak a different language. So fucking stupid lol...I haven't heard the term bramladesh since fucking high school. Grow the fuck up.

      Delete
    4. Also from Brampton, I agree with 18. While I also haven't heard Bramledesh since high school that is most likely just because I am rarely there anymore. I have also read several articles describing cities to live in for Ontario and multiple use this term or one similar for Brampton. The mall does have white people, but that is basically the only place. Almost every establishment there is run by other cultures who not only hire their own kind, but also many times refuse to speak english. It's easy to say why I rarely go back there and why my family wants to leave.

  18. Easy solution to this. Just concentrate all the racial minorities into a handful of places. All the negroes, all the chinks, all the indians and all the fucking moslems. Put them all together in enclosed, supervised spaces where they can be controlled.

    Then put them to work. Whip them into obedience. If they don't listen... I bet there's a lot of great medical research they could be used for. Or just gas them, that works too.
