T or F: they don't want to get equal, they want to get even
I couldn't even tell you what all the protesting is about. Is it police brutality?

Judging from comments I see from black friends on Facebook, it appears they want to get even, not equal. Comments such as these confirm that IMO:

- because they will have to lose money and power

- because they will have to admit they had privilege and help and must lose that privilege and Help others

- because they are afraid that if minorities are equal they will be treated like they treated others

- because they are too lazy and selfish to work for anyone but themselves.

Equal and even are the same thing


I think the word you're looking for is revenge

True. Equality died with affirmative action, diversity hiring, and race-based admissions for higher ed.

I would argue a minority has a significantly huge advantage over a white kid in academia and the job market given the same qualifications.

I'm saying "get even" in the context of revenge.

Equality... yep. Lets split the NFL revenues away from the players with the police officers across the country so they can offer better social training and better salaries to attract better talent. Equality needs to be taken seriously.

Nope, they want special treatment. Even more than they already get. It will never be enough either.

T

Blatantly obvious with the double standards.

It's difficult to understand it as anything else as a white person born after the 1970s. Most of us didn't see the institutional racism. We were not around when King was shot. But neither did any of the SJW's that are so pissed right now.

Most people on this board are from working class map dots in Louisiana. Sympathy should not be expected from us. This privilege argument isn't going to work on us. The only thing separating most of us from pure white trash are parents that valued education and hard work.

Most people are supporting it because it’s trendy and they perceive it as a big frick YOU to the all mighty white man... nothing more, nothing less

Exactly.

I always find it odd how society is accepting of admitting that on average blacks are better at athletics, better at music, BBC lol, etc. But don't ever mention the things whites are stereotypically better at or blacks or stereotypically worse at according to statistics: intelligence, budgeting, present fathers.

What they are fighting for already exist. They are equal. They have all the rights the whites have.

What they are realllyy fighting for is attention.

I don't either. It's stuff like that that makes me realize they want white people in poverty and blacks ruling the world. They don't want equal opportunity, they want revenge

They are synonyms. I understand what he said, but just say revenge.

Been saying it for a long time. They don't want equality, they want preference.
