Skip to comments.Obama’s jobs Depression is aimed at his biggest rival: white males

Are we willing to admit our current jobs Depression really belongs to the white American male? Are we willing to recognize the real success of the Tea Party movement belongs to frustrated, out of work white American males at home and on computers and fed up with how this society is treating them?
Career counselor Marty Nemko who has advised 2,000 people, says, My white male clients have a tougher time getting hired than do women or minorities. He says the 77 cents on the dollar wage disparity for women is a misconception.
Variables peculiar only to men include work hazards, tougher job evaluations, the specter of discriminatory companies, longer commute times and times on task ,skew the figures, and men actually do work longer and harder than women.
Everyday TV ads show white males as either a doofus or Darth Vader reincarnated. One especially despicable utility ad shows the wife mother and two children (a boy and a girl) pointing their remote controls at the hapless white husband father. The message that the controller of the remote has all the power is unmistakable.
Consider how many prime time shows feature white males as serial killers, rapists, murderers, criminal perps.... Even a little white boy turns out to be the real sex abuser killer in one detective show while the crime is solved by the multicultural soup pot of phony TV cop actors.
From GI Joe, Audie Murphy, Ronald Reagan, to John Wayne, John Glenn and our Sully, we see the white American males magnificence denied. White males have transformed our country into civilizations leap never before accomplished in human history.
Old Dead White Guys
Yet, our textbooks have so deconstructed our mens feats that our children have no great role models. "...just discarded as old, dead white maleness

Propaganda. This has all been planned for a very long time.
A stereotypical ‘Harry’ could actually be called Joe Biden.
“Propaganda. This has all been planned for a very long time.”
That’s a fact.
White males in the work force have been disposable for about 20 years. All other protected classes come first. Companies can hire/fire them at will without worrying about EEOC garbage.
The War Against Boys by Christina Hoff.
The propaganda war against boys has government as its ally.
Yeah, the MSM can spin it however they want. In the workplace, the real value of white males is crystal clear. Everyone knows this, but many pretend otherwise. But when the chips are down, who do they turn to?
The REAL problem is the BS Diversity movement. In many venues, it makes it very difficult (if not impossible) for white males to get hired.
The law of unintended consequences - if you piss into the wind, you will get wet. Atlas can shrug at any time...
“The REAL problem is the BS Diversity movement. In many venues, it makes it very difficult (if not impossible) for white males to get hired.”
The other problem is it is so hard to find competent minorities and females to fill those quotas that companies are willing to invest a lot more time & money in them.
And it all started with the writings of white male philosophers, thinkers, and authors.
Too many conservatives today underestimate the power of ideas.
Reagan understood the power of ideas, though. It wasn't the application of brute military force that ended the cold war. It was Reagan's advocacy of a philosophy that succeeded.
That’s right, the keyboard is mightier than the AK-47.
The unemployment rate for minorities is far higher than for white males.
No matter that the dad is the dope on TV
The Anglo American abdicated and is in the process of being replaced by a coalition of homosexuals, lesbians, transvestites and other perverts; felons, blacks, non-christians, hispanics and other aliens. The Anglo American will suffer the fate of those who are conquered. Already we see unemployment, insults, physical attacks, blasphemy against our religion and discrimination against its practitioners. As the Gaul said to the Roman “Woe to the Conquered!”
Unemployed white males have more time to politic.
Exactly, ever noticed how business wants to hire that uneducated lout fresh from jail? There is a huge misrepresented population.... err employee pool there.
“I know I’ve gotta lot goin’ against me: I’m White, I’m a man, I’m Protestant, and I’m hard working. But you’d think there’d be one of them Constitutional Amendments to protect me!”
- Archie Bunker
Who knew? I thought he preferred white males.
Also, minorities often get preferential treatment with regard to raises. I’ve seen a couple of cases within recent years as evidence of that. In both cases, promotions came after about just one year on the job. This never happens with white men.
it has been since the Civil Rights act and the Great Society that ushered in that gave them incentives to not work
which is why this article is fairly accurate to a point...much of the legal job loss is disproportionately white male
ironically illegals employment is way down too...here in Nashville I'd say they are off 40% at least...moved on
This has been going on for a long time.
Waltons, Little House on the Prairie, Growing Pains, Leave it to Beaver, Father Knows Best, etc - all gone. No great regular white dads anymore.
Stupid white dads/husbands started coming in in the 80s and 90s. Fat stupid white dads came in in the 90s and this last decade.
The Nanny (stupid), Tool Time (stupid), Roseanne (stupid and fat), Still Standing (stupid and fat), King of Queens (stupid and fat), According to Jim (stupid and fat), even cartoons (Family Guy, The Simpsons, American Dad) - there are no shows on that the white guy isn’t stupid (and usually overweight).
I know these are all comedies but c’mon, if you can’t see the propaganda here and the message that gets continually projected and reinforced you’re blind. Put it this way if any other demgraphic was always portrayed this way there’d be a huge PC stink raised about it.
Probably the best show on (in reruns) is The Unit. They have at least a couple decent white guys.
I’m watching this happen. There are two horrible white males in my group that are well long years overdue for promotions and raises. They do automation so 17 hour work days, and 21 day work weeks (away from home), are the norm. There is a female who is in our group who not only refuses to travel, but is a good thing since she is completely incompetent at the job anyway (and has several plants that don’t want her back). She now does stuff at the office, of which every single thing she touches must be redone. She is getting rapid promotions and raises. And probably now makes double the evil white guys salary despite the fact they have similar amounts of years with the company.
The ironic thing was during the last round of mega layoffs, we had a black female who had been in the engineering department for over 20 years who was very competent, get the axe. Although you would think being a black woman in an engineering department would be the ultimate kryptonite shielding in a diversity obsessed company, I guess that shielding evaporates if the person in question is actually an asset to the company and is actually competent at her job.
Now that I think about it, I think her shielding dissapated because the company knew there was zero chance that she would come back and file a discrimination lawsuit. As she was definitely not the type to do so.
It is 5:00 pm in the workplace and the edict comes down from corporate to pull a significant amount of data and deliver a full analysis to corporate by 9:00 am the next morning. You can almost certainly guarantee the single mothers will be out the door no matter what their title or responsibility. The minorities who had “plans” for the evening or raise other objections will also leave. It will likely be a grey haired white male, who possibly works for a female or minority boss, and several unmarried young white males and females who will pull the all-nighter to get the work done. The division manager (white, black, female or male) who went home at the normal time will receive credit for the work. If the work is unacceptable, the grey haired white male will be reprimanded or fired. After all, someone has to be accountable.
At review time HR will provide the quotas to the division manager. The requisite number of minorities and females will be promoted with any remaining promotions given to a few white males who are absolutely critical to getting the work done in a crunch. Raises will be handed out according to a bell curve, with the division manager acutely aware corporate will be looking at the average percent increase for minorities versus whites and females versus males. If the division manager wants to get ahead, the distribution of raises will meet or exceed the expected outcome no matter what the actual performance of individuals. What counts is the group result, not individual performance.
White males over age 50 in most large corporations are an endangered species. Those who remain in the organization have either made it to the executive suite, have very specific technical skills which cannot be replicated and are essential to the survival of the organization, or are the “go to” middle management guy in departments. In sales, finance, and operations there are a few grey headed whites who have decades of institutional knowledge the smart minorities and females on their way up realize they have to leverage in order to advance their careers. In the dog eat dog, constantly downsizing corporate organizations, those survivors keep the train running on schedule while the rest play out the political game.
Over the past 30 years most American corporations have endured significant downsizing and restructuring, all in the name of increasing competitiveness as free trade has opened up the US market to the rest of the world and waves of government edicts have required corporations to meet specific quotas for women and minorities at all levels. Millions of white males have been jettisoned in the process, most moving on to lower paying jobs in small businesses or exiting the workforce if they could afford to retire.
It would be interesting to do a study of large organizations who have failed over the past 30 years. It may be one of the determining factors has been the brain and skills drain from the exodus of white males from middle management, not to mention the loss of work ethic in the workplace.
Seven years ago I sat in a senior management meeting of a large corporation and listened to a then 42 year old white male executive VP who had risen rapidly through the corporate staff to run the largest operating group in the company without having ever run a division office, a sales force or a factory. The CEO and Board made him a group president overseeing 20 operating divisions, seven billion dollars in sales, and multiple factories all over the planet. He was as prepared for this job by his working experience churning out financial statements and strategic plans in the corporate office as Barack Obama was prepared for being President of the United States. In his speech to the senior management committee he spoke of the coming demographic changes in America and the need to replace the aging white male workforce with young energetic minorities and women. He talked about the financial benefits of exiting white males approaching age 50 — lower pension costs, lower healthcare costs.
He then proceeded to execute this program in the operating companies under his administration. He exited thousands of middle aged white males. He reorganized the operating units, combining divisions, exiting their white male leaders, and promoting promising young females and minorities into the senior roles. The new “matrix” organization structures with dozens of bright young minority and female executives had unclear lines of authority and accountability. The downsized middle management was overwhelmed with work and did not understand how to function in a world where one might be reporting to three different vice presidents in the modern virtual matrix organization. Customers could not understand who to engage with in a new organization where they might be called on by “customer management teams” with no apparent leader ultimately responsible for results. Within two years, what had been the largest and most profitable business in the corporation and its industry was in shambles. Today it is a shell of its former self, spun off by the parent company, marginally profitable, and drowning in debt. Tens of thousands of people lost their jobs and a great organization over 100 years old was ruined thanks to the “vision” of one man.
By the way, the man responsible for this disaster, left the company with a large severance package, and moved on to run another company which he filled with bright young people. This new company is currently going through a significant downsizing “due to the economy”.
