When Whites Get a Free Pass

Ian Ayres, New York Times, February 24, 2015

{snip}

{snip} A field experiment about who gets free bus rides in Brisbane, a city on the eastern coast of Australia, shows that even today, whites get special privileges, particularly when other people aren’t around to notice.

As they describe in two working papers, Redzo Mujcic and Paul Frijters, economists at the University of Queensland, trained and assigned 29 young adult testers (from both genders and different ethnic groups) to board public buses in Brisbane and insert an empty fare card into the bus scanner. After the scanner made a loud sound informing the driver that the card did not have enough value, the testers said, “I do not have any money, but I need to get to” a station about 1.2 miles away. (The station varied according to where the testers boarded.)

With more than 1,500 observations, the study uncovered substantial, statistically significant race discrimination. Bus drivers were twice as willing to let white testers ride free as black testers (72 percent versus 36 percent of the time). Bus drivers showed some relative favoritism toward testers who shared their own race, but even black drivers still favored white testers over black testers (allowing free rides 83 percent versus 68 percent of the time).

The study also found that racial disparities persisted when the testers wore business attire or dressed in army uniforms. For example, testers wearing army uniforms were allowed to ride free 97 percent of the time if they were white, but only 77 percent of the time if they were black.

A police officer is an out-and-out bigot if she targets innocent blacks for speeding tickets. But an officer who is more likely to give a pass to white motorists who exceed the speed limit than to black ones is also discriminating, even if with little or no conscious awareness. This is one reason the Twitter hashtag #crimingwhilewhite is so powerful: It draws attention to the racially biased exercise of discretion by police officers, prosecutors and judges, which results in whites getting a pass for the kinds of offenses for which minorities are punished.

{snip}

{snip} Drivers were more likely to let testers ride free when there were fewer people on the bus to observe the transaction. And the drivers themselves were probably not aware that they were treating minorities differently. When drivers, in a questionnaire conducted after the field test, were shown photographs of the testers and asked how they would respond, hypothetically, to a free-ride request, they indicated no statistically significant bias against minorities in the photos (86 percent said they would let the black individual ride free).

{snip}

What does white privilege mean today? In part, it means to live in the world while being given the benefit of the doubt. Have you ever been able to return a sweater without a receipt? Has an employee ever let you into a store after closing time? Did a car dealership take a little extra off the sticker price when you asked? When’s the last time you received service with a smile?

    Assuming this study was about Negro blacks and not Abo blacks the solution is simple: stop importing African blacks. Besides everyone knows African blacks worldwide are the most likely to scam to get something for nothing.

      “Yo, can you hook me up?”
      When I first heard this phrase, as a kid working at a burger joint, I thought that it was just a black person’s way of starting an order. I mean, I didn’t know the guy from Adam, why would he expect something for free? When the black guy drives up to the window, I tell him how much it is. He got offended. OFFENDED! Offended that I was going to charge him? Offended that I wasn’t going to steal from my employer for some random black dude? Offended that I didn’t think that I owed him a hamburger because his great-great-great-great-great-great-grandaddy was a slave? Offended because I am white?
      I will never know. He and his hooptie full of homies drove off in a huff, and I learned a lesson that has stuck with me for 25 years. They are ALWAYS trying to get more for free.

      • SentryattheGate

        I’ve seen the same thing. I was around a group of black women, dumber than stumps, yet they knew where all the gubmint freebies could be found, the various programs, the qualifications, the deadline dates, what you could get, etc, etc.etc.

        • WR_the_realist

          And yet we’re supposed to believe that those people are not able to figure out how to get a state ID for voting purposes.

          • Nancy

            When the real pushback is about blacks not wanting to reveal their actual identities and get arrested for an outstanding warrant (which blacks define as “being arrested for nothing”). THAT’S how the voter ID law “negatively impacts” blacks, but they’ll never admit it openly.

      • One big reason why black businesses fail is because of this “hook me up” syndrome.

        • SentryattheGate

          I wanted to buy a cookie at my grocery store bakery counter, but the black girl at the counter said she was on break, “go get the white girl” she said. As I left the area, 4 friends of the black employee walked up, she greeted them and offered them cookies (for free, it sounded like)!

          • Marilyn Rosen

            Wow… I ran into that down south. My friends and I were on the way to Florida and we stopped at a McDonald’s in Ga. The girl waited on the guy behind us (who was A.A.).we should have left really but we were young and naive.

          • Raymond Kidwell

            Black privilege. We need to educate all blacks about it.

          • SentryattheGate

            Me too, but I did speak out loudly that I was there first, and I was begrudgingly served before the black guy behind me.

    • Jason Lewis

      Tens of thousands of Somali muslims have been imported, most going to Minnesota. Now, in recent news, the Mall of the America’s has to be watched 24/7 for a terror attack. We are idiots.

      • WR_the_realist

        “We” are not idiots, but the people in Washington, D.C. and the mass media certainly are.

  • MekongDelta69

    Uh-oh. The New York Slimes is at it again…

    Let me sum up what they said, so you don’t have to waste your time reading their usual garbage:
    “All Whites suck.”

    Aaaaand there ya go…

    “Bus drivers were twice as willing to let white testers ride free as black testers (72 percent versus 36 percent of the time). Bus drivers showed some relative favoritism toward testers who shared their own race, but even black drivers still favored white testers over black testers (allowing free rides 83 percent versus 68 percent of the time).”

    So, according to the statistics, black drivers are far more willing to let anyone ride for free then are drivers of other races. The lack of incoming revenue then likely leads to worse vehicle maintenance or worse service unless the city makes up the lost revenue by taxing people who don’t use the bus.

    It should also be noted that even black drivers are less apt to give other blacks a pass because blacks know blacks. The black driver realizes that nearly all whites and Asians who claim to be unable to afford the bus really can’t afford the bus, but many blacks asking for a free ride are just trying to get over.

    I ride the subway in a major city. Everyday I see the same black people standing outside the subway entrance asking people for money to cover their fare. I can see that these “poor” people are dressed well, but they nonetheless ask for money everyday because they know that everyday a white guilt tourist will give them money. I see other blacks just walk by these “poor” black panhandlers because they know the black handler is just trying to get a free trip and isn’t actually poor.

    • GeneticsareDestiny

      That happens in my city too (Minneapolis). There’s always blacks hanging around bus stops in downtown Minneapolis asking random whites for bus fare. I don’t give them anything but sometimes other whites do. Usually it’s women who give in but I’ve seen male businessmen do it too.

      Their main motivation for giving money to the blacks seems to be to get the black person to leave them alone, but they’re only encouraging this kind of behavior. Blacks would stop doing it if they knew they weren’t going to get a free ride by asking whites for money.

    • People also know that Whites will only ask, or beg, for a freebie if we really need to. We typically feel very ashamed to do so. But blacks have no shame and don’t mind asking for handouts.

      • Anna Tree

        amren com/ar/2008/04/
        According to a poll sponsored by a leftie outfit called New American Media, many non-whites in America—blacks, Hispanics, and Asians—have a more favorable view of whites than they do of other non-whites.
        Sixty-one percent of Hispanics, 54 percent of Asians, and 47 percent of
        blacks said they would rather do business with whites than members of
        the other two groups. Other interesting findings: Forty-four percent of
        Hispanics and 47 percent of Asians are “afraid of African-Americans
        because they are responsible for most of the crime.” Half of blacks say
        Hispanic immigrants “are taking jobs, housing, and political power away
        from the black community.” More than half of blacks and 46 percent of
        Hispanics say Asian shopkeepers do not treat them with respect.

    • Sick of it

      In any industry where you can see a person’s credit report, you know who’s lying and you know who really has it tough. The first group tends toward the darker end.

    • SentryattheGate

      More than other races, I see that blacks working in stores can’t figure out the correct change , are too lazy to do a price check, or to move the older stock to the front of the shelf when adding new items. My grocery store no longer has any blacks working in the produce section where more attention is required. The store chain was threatened with lawsuits for not employing enough blacks; they tried but didn’t work out. The store went downhill rapidly, then switched back to more white employees and standards are back up again.

    • TruthBeTold

      It should also be noted that even black drivers are less apt to give other blacks a pass because blacks know blacks.

      Blacks know they’re being scammed by blacks. They know the tricks, the games, the excuses.

  • In this case, I suspect “black” means Australian Aboriginal, not black-negro African. I doubt Brisbane has many negroes.

    • Nancy

      We had an au pair living with us from Australia when my kids were little, and her grandmother (“Gran”) was a tribal elder. This girl was as white as we are. Her only conceivable negro trait was very curly, bushy dark-red hair. I saw a picture of “Gran”, who likewise appeared to be a white old lady with a white Afro.

  • TomIron361

    To what end is this dumb study?

    • Frank_DeScushin

      Despite the Times editors endlessly complaining about white racism in America, they couldn’t actually find an example in the USA so they had to go halfway around the globe to find an example of “racism”, and a weak example at that.

      You know what was a good indicator of racism in America? Last week’s incident in Mississippi where a black rapper named Afroman punched out a white woman who got on the stage. I’d venture to guess that Afroman would not have punched out a black woman, but his white hatred drove him to violence. But it’s the reaction that was telling. If a white performer punched about a black woman on stage, countless black men would get on stage and attack the white man for attacking the black woman. Yet, here we were in Mississippi the heart of the allegedly racist South, and not a single white man confronted the black man who punched out the white woman. The one white man who got on stage looked almost apologetic to the black attacker. It was all so pathetic.

      In the 1950s that black man never would have hit that white girl because he would know the reaction by white men would be swift and severe. Now the black man gladly punches the white girl in the face because he knows there will be know reaction from white men. They’ve been to emasculated and feminized to act. (Oddly, white Liberals call this Progress.)

      Blacks still complain that they’re afraid of white racism. Yet the Afroman incident shows that blacks have zero fear of white retaliation, and it’s in fact whites who are deathly petrified of being retaliated against or labeled racist. It’s all so sad.

      • InAFreeCountry

        Well, how many Mississippi white boys would actually be at an Afroman concert anyway?

        • jambi19

          Afroman is actually a frat dog favorite. He goes to all the university towns and plays at the greek bars to the white boys and girls and their parents’ money.

          • TL2014

            Pathetic isn’t it..

        • Frank_DeScushin

          Sadly, a lot of white boys were in attendance. Several articles on the incident noted that Afroman, by virtue of his hit song “When I Got High”, is more popular among white stoners than black thugs who prefer more gangsta laden rap.

        • Afroman is a one hit wonder, had a song more than ten years ago called “Cause I Got High.” It was and still is a big hit with the white stoner crowd.

          • LIBERTYSINCURSION

            Ugggh!! Hate that song! White stoner idiots are just terrible. But not as terrible as the idiotic White wiggers out there. They are beyond terrible. They’re downright disgraceful, absolutely disgraceful!

      • Nancy

        Interestingly, more white middle-aged “soccer mom” types (like me) are carrying concealed. And we have zero problem with using force for self-defense.

    • LIBERTYSINCURSION

      It’s simple, to instill hatred of White people in blacks and other minorities and self hatred and guilt for being who they are in Whites. It’s all about the hate my friend, and as you can see by the interracial violent crime statistics. These routine hate Whitey “studies” are very, very, successful.

      • Anna Tree

        Indeed, prejudice against whites becomes acceptable…The writing is on the wall. Escalation of Prejudice:

        1. Disparaging Terms –> Ni…r was/is bad, cracker is okay.
        2. Avoidance –> Non-whites have the freedom of association, but whites are racists to want theirs.
        3.
        Discrimination –> is a sin, unless it is against whites, affirmative
        action is good and non-whites’s favoritism for their own is healthy
        (White Privilege Conference: discriminating against whites is okay and
        not racist)
        4. Dehumanization –> An evil, unless one says: “can’t wait for whites to die” “whites are evil” etc
        5. Physical Violence –> Knocking out whites is a game; only non-whites can suffer hate crimes.
        6, Genocide, extermination, or ethnic cleansing –> can happen only if about non-whites. About whites it is not even discussed, worse it is because non-whites need to save the world from the whites.

        • LIBERTYSINCURSION

          Yup exactly! But just think, as disgusting as you and I find the Anti-White hatred we see today. The hate our children’s children will be facing will be so far beyond what it is today. I’m telling you, in the name of “equality”, American companies, < The same ones imagined, founded and built up from nothing by our ancestors. ) will eventually be forced into limiting the number of Whites they employ. We see the beginnings of it now. But eventually our children's children will only be allowed to hold as many positions in a company. As their demographic percentage of the Nations racial make up dictates. I see dark, dark days ahead for both our country, and more importantly, our people.

          Whats worse, is the fact that this is not just happening in America. This is happening in damn near every White Nation on the entire planet to one degree or another. And it's happening all at the same time. Which denies the ability for any one Nation to act as a testing ground for this new suicidal policy of multiculturalism. So we are all thrown into the abyss at the same time. And once these demographic changes reach a certain percent, they will solidify and become unchangeable. Or at least unchangeable without drastic actions being taken. And with all the Anti-White hatred and self loathing being pumped into our people's lives via these mandatory White Privilege / White Hate classes. Will there even be any capable and willing White Men and Women around to take such drastic actions when the time presents itself?

          • Anna Tree

            I think the world as we know will not survive the collapse of the white race: technologically, scientifically, ideologically, artistically etc.

            So I think we need to regroup to survive the plagues that will follow that collapse. Not only diseases and famines but race wars. I think we should watch more than fight, that is Whites should only protect themselves and not fight at all if they can: let the others kill each others: we wait until those wars finish, as well as the other Malthusian catastrophes coming. My goal is to save as many white lives, especially as many white race realist lives, as possible.

  • superlloyd

    Even black bus drivers know that the majority of their black brothers and sisters are freeloaders, cheats and liars. This delinquency has either been overlooked or lauded and even encouraged by cultural marxist destroyers of society. No wonder they are shameless and brazen about their anti social behaviours.

  • Luca

    “..even black drivers still favored white testers over black testers”

    Could it be that everyone is better off when blacks are not passengers on a bus? Could it be that even black bus drivers know that there will be less of a chance of fighting, loud obnoxious music, screaming, interruptions, loud cackling and foul language? Could it be that all bus drivers have learned this lesson though experience and not prejudice? Could it be that this is just another short-sighted liberal article with cherry-picked statistics and testing to make blacks look like victims…again?

    • JohnEngelman

      Yes, it could be.

    • GeneticsareDestiny

      I used to ride the bus a lot in a city that’s almost 20% black and it would absolutely be a better experience if blacks didn’t ride the bus. Rides were generally pleasant and reasonably quiet when there were no or few black passengers, but when blacks made up a significant portion of the riders it inevitably got loud and the chance of there being a fight on the bus went up exponentially.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if black bus drivers have noticed this too. Blacks aren’t scared to notice things the way white liberals are.

  • Homo_Occidentalis

    Whites are friendlier to those who look more like themselves (ie., people who share more of the same genes) because it is evolutionarily expedient. Evolution has through the millenia incentivized such behaviour. The modern anti-race (and implicitly anti-white) view espoused by the Commie Times is comparatively quite recent.

    Pathological altruism for genetically dissimilar organisms, on the scale were seeing it today, can only spell destruction for those species that practice it. It’s one of the reasons why Scandinavian socialism worked so well when those nations were homogenous, and is now imploding as more and more “invasive species” are being imported.

    • I doubt that. I think more Whites try to kiss up to blacks. But, by the same token (or should I have used a different euphemism?) everyone knows how blacks really are and that they are always trying to take advantage of a situation. Hence the different attitudes toward black begging behavior.

  • connorhus

    I notice they conveniently left out gender in this study, unless I missed it while reading the excerpt. I would guess the Whites were heavily weighted tot he female side as most colleges are these days.

    This study means nothing. It’s akin to crime reports lumping Hispanics in as White and studies that show Women make less than Men without mentioning they work less hours. Just a trick to try and prove their “feelings”.

  • JohnEngelman

    White privilege means that people who have never seen me before assume that I will behave like a civilized human being because I belong to a civilized race.

    • MrGJG

      In other words, we earned it! That’s the angle that should be discussed before we can have that discussion on race.

      • JohnEngelman

        Anyone who reads many of my comments knows that I am liberal on many issues. There are various kinds of liberals and liberalism. The same of course is true of conservatives and conservatism.

        Those who are “liberal” on racial matters are terribly hypocritical. This of course has damaged the liberal brand. Liberals support integrated schools, but send their children to all white or nearly all white private schools if the alternative is a predominantly black public school.

        Liberals call for “a conversation on race,” while making it virtually illegal to say anything critical about blacks. When talking about blacks one is not supposed to mention the race gap in average IQ, crime, and illegitimacy. If one acknowledges that the gap exists, one is supposed to blame it on whites. It is our fault because of what our ancestors did to theirs, even if our ancestors were in Europe at the time, or if our ancestors had nothing to do with the slave trade.

        In my case, none of my ancestors owned slaves or benefited in any way from the slave trade. Two fought in the Union Army during the Civil War. One was crippled for life. Both of my parents taught me not to hate blacks. (I still try not to.)

        No matter. I am supposed to feel guilty about the situation blacks are in. I am supposed to forgive them for the crimes they have committed against me, and for the problems they cause me on a daily basis.

        Have I benefitted by being white? Yes of course. I would benefit more if nearly everyone in the U.S. was white. Countries where nearly everyone is white or Oriental respond better to national traumas. The political polarization in the U.S. – which has made American politics so dysfunctional – is caused ultimately by racial diversity.

        I would love for there to be a real conversation on race. Charles Murray and Jared Taylor should be allowed to participate. I might be able to contribute a few insights myself.

    • Once I had finished up some more machine and welding work this evening after dinner – until it was too late for me to bother the neighbors with the noise of power tools in the basement and too cold for the garage door to be open for welding – I made another “Tyrell” Corporation uniform cap: “Genetic Replicants: More Human Than Human”: (“Blade Runner”, 1982). God, my fingertips are so sore from pulling that needle through the cap’s cloth and heavy patch!

      It somehow didn’t occur to me to go out and rob a liquor store. Running errands this morning, though, I did buy my wife a big can of Foster’s and a 1.75 L bottle of bottom-shelf vodka to go in coffee. Got printing done at the library and some more produce at Wal Mart, and Ariadne through the current batch of spelling and math work.

      It was a very “white” day, and that’s what we have led people to routinely expect from us. No robberies, no knockout game, just a lot of honest work. One of the few consolations to sleeping as little as I do anymore is that one gets an enormous amount done.

  • JohnEngelman

    Once a black cab driver from Uganda took me from Baltimore Washington International Airport to my mother’s home in the Washington, DC area. Without any prompting from me he told me which neighborhoods in the DC area he liked to work in, and which neighborhoods he was afraid of. Without exception, the safe neighborhoods were white. The dangerous neighborhoods were black.

    • John Smith

      Just like Jesse Jackson .

    • Alexandra1973

      Yep, for all their blather about “black lives matter,” they don’t seem to believe it themselves.

  • Okay, that was the story from the New York Times. Now, let’s get back to reality. IF, and I say IF this study is correct, here is my take: Whites are more likely to get a free pass because we all know that White people are-generally speaking-more trustworthy. We also sympathize with the fact that Whites are more likely to work hard, support their families, and try and obey the law. By contrast, blacks are always trying to get over on the system, and in addition, have a thousand different government agencies and programs looking out for their interests. So people think, what the heck more do they need? Interesting that this is even true of BLACK people. Even blacks are less likely to trust their own people! Even THEY know how other blacks are and that blacks are always trying to get over on you. That is what is really going on here. People of all races know what is really going on in the world.

    • John Smith

      Whites are more likely to have habitually paid and blacks are more likely to be in the system, using the money of white taxpayers to pay their way for them already.

  • david dorian

    Conclusion: a lot of people are fed up with non-whites taking a free ride. Literally.

  • Eagle_Eyed

    I wonder what the differences between other groups would be. Men vs. women, old vs. young, etc. My guess is that pretty women would do better than ugly men, that the elderly would garner more sympathy than 20-somethings, and above all that how the person presented himself to the bus driver matters in what the response is.

    Of course no one would decry woman privilege, old privilege, or persuasive-persons privilege on this basis.

    • Anna Tree

      In the same correct reasoning, stealing is by nature, a crime against richer people, but nobody would decry the poor of having a poverty privilege.

  • Vito Powers

    I still remember hearing about how black guys won’t let a black mechanic work on their cars; they prefer a white mechanic. Even blacks know how lazy and incompetent their own kind can be.

    • WR_the_realist

      In Bonfire of the Vanities the black perps insisted on getting a Jewish lawyer rather than a black one. That book was fiction, but you can be sure that bit was based on reality.

  • De Doc

    Who’s more likely to cause trouble, while riding in the bus? I think we have a reason for this particular White Privilege.

    • Anna Tree

      I think there is a reason for EVERY white privilege 🙂

  • Anna Tree

    I wonder what will be the results in South Africa…
    —-
    And I have a solution to the problem: separation. When each race in its own country, there won’t be discrimination against blacks.

  • LHathaway

    In my town, on certain bus routes at night, perhaps nearly half of them, most of the Whites sit huddled together near the front of the bus.

    Most whites very much prefer not to ride the bus at all, if they can help it, just because they are White. This has perhaps been true going on 40 years now in my town. No one has said a word – except to champion blacks and make whites feel further guilty. The same black that intimidate them, insult them, and on rare occasion do violence to them learning from experience why they do not want to even take a public bus, anywhere in the city. Agreeing with them is supposed to make them less violent. At least, that is what our community leaders are told.

    You can’t say it isn’t for their own benefit. The poor things need each other.

  • Marilyn Rosen

    I don’t know if this is still true but the high school I attended back in the 90s had a high Arab population. I heard they don’t have to pay taxes for 7 years once they become U.S. citizens. Then after 7 yes they go back to the home country. Talk about knowing how to work the system..

    • Marilyn Rosen

      I guess the point is, is that I never hear of white privileges… Everyone else gets the privilege while we work our butts off

      • Usually Much Calmer

        What do you do, if you don’t mind my asking?

        • LHathaway

          I hate to butt in here but I’ve noticed, a lot of women work relatively hard in our nation. I’ve even read that women are more likely than men to earn minimum wage. The CEO gap Has narrowed, but over the years, the construction worker and the garbage collector gap has not budged one inch. In fact, in our entire nation of 300 million people, I’m not sure there is a single woman who even gets her hands dirty at work. Just her hands, and no other part. I would guess Marilyn is a girl. I don’t know why I wanted to say that. I like to butt in.

          • Usually Much Calmer

            I know you do. I don’t mind. She did not seem to resent my question, perhaps she doesn’t mind you, either. Shine on, crazy diamond.

        • Marilyn Rosen

          I’m now a stay at home mom but I used to work in daycare with all ages. I guess I speak for those who do work hard now. I’m not saying all people are lazy. I hope it didn’t come out like that but I used to work with families who were on welfare and brought there kids to daycare while they got there hair and nails done lol. One mom came in looking all glamorous and I knew she didn’t work

          • Usually Much Calmer

            Thank you for the reply, Marilyn.

            Someone who isn’t in the workforce right now presenting themselves as someone who is when making grievance claims is a little Animal Farm-esque, if you can see where I am coming from.

          • Marilyn Rosen

            I gotcha! Gotta tell you, being a mom is a 24/7 job. One of the hardest, yet most rewarding. My son has entered the terrible 2s and boy can it be terrible! Especially when he decides to throw himself on the floor at Walmart shrieking! It takes consistency, and patience lol. Most moms I worked for put their kid in daycare just so they can get a break.

          • There was one of those at Wal Mart today. He said he wanted to walk and not sit in the cart. I understood full well that he wanted to run around, pull stuff off shelves, and probably get lost. I could understand the kid, because they’re naturally curious about things and also quickly become bored, but I had to empathize with the mother. Our respective daughters were about the same age; they just grinned at each other.

          • I used to work in daycare for adult subcontinentals who got paid to play “dress up” and pretend they were engineers.

            Oh no..I can’t imagine what that must have been like!

    White privilege = high IQ, future time orientation, temperate demeanor, ability to cooperate in small and large groups, and empathy. Everything neccessary to build and maintain a pleasant 1st World Civilization. Who wouldn’t want to associate with such people and give them certain benefits and perks to keep them around?

    Another question. Why shouldn’t the civilization built and maintained by White people benefit White people? Should the house a man works to build and maintain be used to shelter another man and his family? Its ridiculous.

    These damned melano-supremacists never stop! I guess we have to wait for the subhuman scum to die.

    What relation is this subhuman Ayers to the subhuman Bill Ayers, terrorist and murder scumbag subhuman that he is?

  • TheCogitator

    We all earn our reputations. Since the white race is know for its civilized behavior and the black race for their uncivilized behavior is it an wonder that they are treated as they are?

  • Andy

    The logical next question:

    Why do people of all races tend to trust whites more than blacks?

    • LHathaway

      I suspect some whites trust blacks too much. Anything less would be racist. racism is officially the worst of all evils in our society. Some whites pay for this.

    “This elegant experiment follows”

    So, our entire society is riven with this unconscious bias (and institutional racism) that we are not even aware of? It effects everything. It is far reaching and pervasive.

    I wonder if that extends to those who performed this elegant experiment? The experiment, as well as the newsman, we are just supposed to trust. I may have been born yesterday, but not in the last hour. I don’t believe a word they’ve written off on their steno-type. Even an extraterrestrial being visiting from outer space would be able to tell our real world is not like they are describing it after visiting only a few days. I suppose that is what the constant ‘education’ is about.

    Perhaps it’s me, but I found that SNL skit to be incredibly stupid and ridiculous. What’s sad is that many Negroes believe that is reality, that whites are always giving away things to whites. Like the Negroes don’t give away the store to other Negroes, especially when it’s a white man’s store.

    • That one was funny precisely because so many of the Afritards believe it is real.

    • FozzieT

      Well to me, that’s the joke. Eddie Murphy was making fun of his fellow blacks’ stupid conspiracy theories.

    Around here black people go around all the time asking for change or other free stuff. It’s rare for a white person to do it, so if a white person did ask for something I would be more likely to give it simply because if a black person asks, I already gave change to the last 93 black people. They have done similar studies where if a person is wearing a suit and tie he is more likely to get change given to him for the same reason. It’s not the people hate bums and give privilege to a businessman, it’s just that you see bums every day and probably give a lot of them change when you feel like it but you can’t give every single one change every time they ask or you’d have nothing left. By contrast a white guy asking for something free or a guy in a business suit is so rare, it’s easier to help.

    It’s similar when I worked in fast food. Every day several black people would be trying to scam us for free food in one way or the other. On a rare occasion a white person would, but it was much rarer. For this reason if someone comes in and complains about the food I’m more likely to believe a white person over a black person just based on all the bad experiences with blacks. It’s sad that some people may actually be telling the truth but it’s just a practical adaptation to the way things are. It’s not that people are rolling out the carpet and giving people a free pass because they are white. It’s just such a rarity that white people ask for free stuff.
