The pitfalls of working with white people Including:
** They ask stupid questions. ** They benefit financially on the backs of black people ** They expect to be appreciated by people of color when they work against racism ** They act afraid of people of color ** They get too friendly too fast

What a bigot. This guy should be shunned as such.
Man what a load of conflicting crap. LOL
Note that “Progressives Today” is an organization about exposing “progressives”, not a “progressive” site.
Very true, the context matters, but we didn’t want to visit the site. They are exposing the racism.
I follow Progressives Today on twitter.
I love their aggressive nature of taking the fight right to the proglodytes.
There's a DAMN good reason for this, and it's not physical fear. MANY of us have busted our asses, often through as much if not more adversity than many blacks or Hispanics, to climb the social and corporate ladder to our positions. To have a single black man or black woman call us a racist, regardless of context or verity, would absolutely destroy the credibility we've worked so hard to attain and turn us into social and corporate pariahs for the same.
The very definition of racism has been maligned and destroyed and bears no meaning to the dictionary or historical definition under the modern convention of the word. It's a damn shame and it's destroying people.
It's tough, but I can live with myself
Who gives a rats patuty. Their Criminal aspect has shown through and The very thing that was made law about Discrimination is hurting them more than anything else!
Seems to me this whole thing is racist.
As the kids would say,”Whatever!”.
And OMG White People write Pay Checks!
Keep tempting me.
I’ve thought this POTUS had so far successfully set race relations back 60 years. I think I had better be ready to revise and more than double that.
More cussing, it looks so good on a conservative site.
I don’t wanna ask you questions, I don’t want your praise, I’m definatley not afraid of you! I just want you to do your job! Geeter Done!
I font every point on this list to be absolutely true, if you are referring to LIBERAL/PROGRESSIVE White people.
Every white liberal / progressive I have seen thinks about Black people exactly this way.
One of my favorite things is to hear a black say, "Whites think...".
Damn right! Hell, we should avoid that sort of bitching. It makes us look like asses!
This guy sounds like a nagger. I’m getting real tired of naggers. Stop nagging, you naggers!
Oprah has a cure for racism.
Same Jim Hoft from Gateway Pundit?
if they don’t like working with whites, then they won’t mind whites not paying into their ponzi scheme of a ‘tax system’

If she likes our people, let her start at the bottom.
Let her get a high yellow and work up.”

Are you one of those folks who believes “damn” is a “cuss word?” Seriously?
I’ve never owned any slaves.
I’ve never met anyone who was ever a slave.
I refuse to accept that slavery more than a century ago has afforded me any advantage -or- inflicted any disadvantage to anyone else alive today.
I’ve had to start over from scratch three times in my life due to my own choices. This time, by the grace of GOD, I’ve learned from my mistakes and know better than to repeat them.
I’ve had to fight for every inch I’ve gained.
No one gave me anything I didn’t earn.
I’ve never met anyone of any color who had any standing to blame me for their poor choices or unfortunate circumstances.
Anyone who claims any different about me is delusional and is simply refusing to take personal responsibility for their own failures and looking to blame anyone and anything to protect their own ego. Period.
Once again sir, you boil things down to a couple biting lines of snark that just plain destroys the crap and sets a proper tone for dealing with both the Progs and those that fear saying what needs to be said.
“In your face” applies to both. Alinsky to the Progs and those that cower from using the tactics the Progs use.
Some things just need to be said, they ain’t polite any more. Why do we need to be
I kind of like the Yiddish swears-—which I’ve used all of my life.
Schmuck,putz,pain in the tush. They have a certain ring to them.:-)
I bet there are times and in front of people, where you wouldn’t use the language you posted.
Why not a public forum of conservatives?
Do you know how quickly this place could degenerate into looking like DU, if we don’t make some effort to police ourselves?
At DU, they love the cussing, it is some kind of lefty, “authenticity” thing, “keeping it real”, showing ones “true emotions”, their “realism”, their “street cred”.
When I worked at a liberal think tank in my youth, I got mightily fed up with a lot of my African-American co-workers. Not all, mind you.
There was the black temp who accused me of racism because I walked slightly ahead of her to show her to her seat. She also accused me of racism because I went through her absent bosses’ mail - as instructed by the boss because we felt a temp wouldn’t know what to do with it. We assumed that all the temp should do was answer the phone and take messages.
My favorite, was the intern from a major university who was given an office that had been vacated by a program officer. I kept the program officer’s rolodex in there because my desk was overwhelmed. She complained about this nasty rolodex every day until she decided to throw it away. Everyone went mad once they realized that this important document had been destroyed!!! She then went to a black Program Officer and said that I had demanded she throw it away. Fortunately, the boss of the entire outfit saw through the entire episode and knew I would never do that. My only regret? That I didn’t take that damned rolodex out of that b’s hands. This same intern went to the President of the organization (a black man) complained of endemic racism. A nice guy, he rolled his eyes and sent her back to her giant office.
I went into this organization a raving lib and came out a raving con. Go figure.
“They ask stupid questions.”
How’s that hope and change working out for you?
Cussers piss me off.
(Didn’t I read that on your FReep page?)
I am slavic. Slavic means slave....
I am not bitter about it.
Screw the race hustlers.
I've warned my kids that the kind of whitey that is most disgusting in the eyes of people of color is the obsequious, genuflecting whitey.
So, as with everyone else, make em earn your respect.
The Pitfalls of Working With White Liberals
My FRiend, you have coined a term which could quickly take wing and spread like the wind!
“No, I said they were NAGGERS!!”
I too wish to spread a new term: Hillary Clinton’s Secret Service codename is actually “The Flying Buttress”.
Wasn’t there a recent comedian who said that white women sleep with Latinos as a way to working up to black guys (or maybe switch the Latino/black part)?
“According to the national White Privilege Conference, there really isn’t anything white people can do right regarding racism.”
If White people are “born” racist - and that seems to be the message coming more and more from the “White Privilege” crowd then why are we not a protected group like homosexuals who are “born that way”?
Biggest pitfall of working with white people is that you have to get up, show up and work until the workday is over.
White people—some few of them anyway—are crazy that way.
No, because cussers delight me.
I wish I could claim I coined the term.
(old habits cling tenaciously)
Might I suggest getting a concealed carry permit?
