The White Female Presumption of Interest

Most ethnic men in America, especially African American ones, have wondered why white women (no matter how unattractive) presume if they like a man, the man will like her in return.  It's as if these women completely disregard the fact that we men have particular preferences in women that they do not embody.  It also is if whiteness trumps any and all other characteristics that men evaluate in women.

Women thinking highly of themselves is quite appropriate, but what gets me is the anger, resentment, and surprise that these women feel when they are rebuffed romantically. On a few occasions, white women have felt the need to explain to me that they "just [asked] me out" as if I was not smart enough to discern that on my own.

I'm sure the American social hierarchy plays a role in white women's minds wherein they think those below them ought to be honored to accept their interest.  That's not how it works however. 

So women, when a guy who happens not to be white is not showing any romanitic inclination towards you, don't call him gay, lazy, or too dumb to realize your value and worth, he just ain't into you!

There Are White Men and Poor White Trash White Men

Most of us have heard white men declare the cliche that there are black people and then there are n..gers.

Let's turn the tables for a moment and declare that there are normal white men and there are Poor White Trash White Men. Poor White Trash White Men sometimes have wealth and the outward appearance of success, but their personal characteristics mark them as unmistakable Trash.
Normal white men do not:

-Obsess over the women black men choose for themselves, especially when these women happen to be non-black. Black men could care less what women white men choose, but Poor White Trash White Men whine and cry and obsess about black men and their women.

-Become jealous and resentful of black men more educated and successful than themselves. Normal white men realize that men different than themselves can be both above and below them in ability and success. Poor White Trash White Men operate under the assumption that they dwell at the top of the social pyramid, even when they may actually dwell at the bottom.

-Criticize our President due to his misguided policies and decisions, and not by claiming is a Muslim, was born in Africa, is a socialist ideologue in disguise. Normal white men can think critically and appeal to reason. Poor White Trash White Men fall prey to emotion and bigotry against our President.

-Consider themselves "better" than others simply because of their skin color. Being better then another involves better ACTIONS, better DECISIONS, and better LIVING, not just a mythic believe that one's skin color entitles them to better treatment and quality of life than others.

Sadly, Poor White Trash White men are growing in number and may soon numerically overtake normal white men in this country. That is the result of a poor economy, an abysmal educational system, and general decline of America. As more and more white men sink to the level of trash, this country sinks closer and closer to its demise.

Feminism and Nazism: Similar Underpinnings

I fully appreciate the horror that existed in Nazi Germany.  No one will deny or diminish that in any way.  However, the social scourge that is feminism has some similar philosophical underpinnings that we all need to be aware of if we are to prevent it from further destroying our United States.

I ask you to watch this with an open mind.....

Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg Marries Asian Woman (Oh My!)

The symbolism is striking, as well as telling.  The young billionaire who heads up Facebook is known for what is to be the next big thing.  Whether it be in the area of social networking or social trending, he has a knack for eschewing the outmoded, and profiting from the overlooked.

"So what's the big deal; he married an Asian," you might ask.  The deal is the fact that his choice of wife is not the typical white American women underscores the new reality that white women are essentially being surpassed in the marketplace of romance.  This is not to say that white women are innately bad, it just means that they are now becoming passe with their behavior and expectations.  The men's rights movement has long held that white women of the Anglosphere tend to be exploitative of male wealth, entitlement-oriented, opportunistic and simply not worth all the trouble.

I applaud Zuckerberg for his open-mindedness and his ability to ignore convention.  May he enjoy his life with his lovely bride, and may other wealthy men follow his lead!

Racial Mockery By Feminists In Sweden

The feminist movement has a particular disdain for Africans who persist in practising female genital mutilation. As a means to espress their displeasure in Sweden, a cake was made so pieces of cake could be cut away in the manner done in Africa.
Notice the glee in the faces of the femininsts while they mock Africans and their practice that runs afould of feminist orthodoxy.

When "Being White" Doesn't Help

W.E.B. Dubois once said that even working white people benefited from the "the psychological wages" of membership in a dominant race. There is, however, more to the story of class in white America than dominance. The hardship and success of upward mobility has created a myth about white American class structure that obscures our truth.

TV shows like "Gossip Girl" make it seem as though most white Americans are simply privileged. Yet, according to U.S. Census data, almost 22 million white people live in poverty. An analysis of reported incomes suggests that people in that income bracket, as well as those with higher incomes, identify with being middle class. In a series of interviews about class status with white Americans, most are
uncomfortable being seen as poor or wealthy.
Further, many don't know what class status they inhabit. Despite the hard work that once ensured upward mobility, many white families have seen stagnant income growth. Others have accrued wealth without anything even resembling a work ethic. When members of different cultural groups marry, diverse traditions of class meet at the kitchen table. Siblings, parents and children can occupy different financial statuses. Some identify with class backgrounds from childhood more than their own.
Behaviors like how to speak, dress, move and gesticulate define class as much as income in white America. On a visit to Westport, Connecticut, I overheard residents complain about a guy who could afford a big house filling the driveway with fixer-upper cars perched on cement blocks. He had the money but not the class.
Gene Bailly, a retired professional living in Vermont who was raised in South Carolina, felt identified with his culture of poverty despite comparative financial success.  He explained, "Even though I worked as an administrator at Columbia University and was pursuing a graduate degree, I behaved and understood the behaviors of others through the lens of a kid growing up in the cotton mills."

My father-in-law, Sam Schatsky, grew up poor on Manhattan's Lower East Side but become a manager of an arts supply store, proudly raising a family in a New York City suburb. The direct line from ethnic immigrant to a thriving member of the so-called melting pot is no longer typical. So many white Americans have more than one socio-economic affiliation and their connection to each has been a circuitous path rather than a straight line. Lifestyles and values interact with incomes to create a class structure that is more kaleidoscope than pie chart.

Aren't all of us part long-skirted immigrant grandmother, part someone who longs to work with his or her hands, part kid dreaming of becoming a firefighter or part parent working too hard to achieve a secure financial future?  Further, those of us who now enjoy an easier standard of living sometimes find the concept of class alien. We have been so self-guided, self-driven, self-educated and self-blaming that we no longer consider ourselves members of any group. Many succeed economically, but falter emotionally, having lost family support and friendships in the quest to fulfill an ambition.

Some relatives and friends still feel angry that I moved on, not realizing how much it hurts to leave home and disconnect from loved ones to fulfill yearning dreams. A young woman who attended a prestigious private high school on scholarship expressed similar feelings when recalling what happened when her mom volunteered for the new school's fundraiser: "I watched her pick up her coat and leave while the other moms stayed for the event. She couldn't afford a ticket."

Newly acquired class status brings the fear of losing it, and the worry about how loss would affect family and community. Even though the median net worth of white Americans is just more than $81,000, economic insecurity is at a record high of 20.5%. Especially in these times, it seems like anyone's financial architecture could crumble without warning.

Jeanne Egan, a marketing consultant in New Jersey, who comes from an Irish-American working class family, explains, "I got here on my own and I'm still on my own even though I have a supportive and loving partner. But the minute I stop making my new life happen economically is the minute status can slip away."
Sadly, white racism is legendary. Yet tensions between the classes also occur. Some white people aim to buttress their self-worth by enacting superiority over other white people derogatorily termed, "white trash." Bailly, the son of the teenage cotton mill workers, revealed "even though I was in the top 15 or 20 of my high school class of 200, the guidance counselor never once suggested my going to college because I was the kid of mill workers and he didn't see us as college material."

Scott Lenz started working at age 14 and eventually graduated with a bachelor's of business administration in economics from a college he could afford. He was hired as a corporate logistics manager. When his job performance evaluations indicated he qualified for a promotion to the financial department, he was denied because "I didn't have the markers of the right background."

The assumption that white people should be able to "make it" in the style of Horatio Alger, despite economic stickiness at the higher and lower income brackets, also contributes to class tension. Is the wealth of those who work in finance a new standard that renders others less worthy? Even successful people perceive that they have failed, making excuses for what used to be considered triumphs. Doctors, artists, small business owners and teachers, as well as those performing the maintenance tasks that support a functional society, bristle at being undervalued. The fundamental respect traditionally granted to everyone's contributions, including those still building their lives, has waned.

Charles S. Smith, a 30-year-old custodian working the night shift at a Tucson middle school, keeps trying to afford to complete college. He feels stung when people assume he is an immigrant because of the job he holds. "People come up to me while I'm at work and start speaking foreign languages to me," he said, "as if they can't believe that a regular white American could be doing such a job."
Kelly Washburn, a strategy and communications consultant in New York, lost her job during the "Great Recession." Comparing her life to how hard it was for her widowed mother to raise a family, she now feels the expectation that "anyone can make it" denies a piece of reality.  She said, "We can't, by definition, all be exceptional. We can't all transcend the statistics."  Yet we relentlessly demand it of our selves. We trudge forward in pursuit of the same things that motivate most Americans: healthy meals, an excellent education, travel, a decent place to live, and a few good clothes. But those things now cost more money than most people have.

The real secret of class in white America is that whiteness is like our own Frankenstein. We built a giant creature of spectacle and entitlement that has taken on a life of its own, requiring more of our resources to feed it. But no matter what their class status, no white American is ever quite that white.
