A new poll found that white Americans feel that “discrimination against white people exists in the U.S. today.” Over half of those surveyed said that they believe white people are also facing discrimination.
Conducted by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, the new polling data found that 55% of whites surveyed believe that “discrimination against white people” is a part of American society.
More than half of white Americans say there's discrimination against whites because of race. https://t.co/XHZtAaFC3N pic.twitter.com/eQTUwxnT1I
— NPR (@NPR) October 24, 2017
Among whites, 19% said they’ve “been personally discriminated against” because of their race when applying for jobs, while 11% said it occurred when applying to or while at college. Thirteen percent of whites said they experienced discrimination when being considered for equal pay or promotion at work.
“If you apply for a job, they seem to give the blacks the first crack at it,” said 68-year-old Tim Hershman of Akron, Ohio, “and, basically, you know, if you want any help from the government, if you’re white, you don’t get it. If you’re black, you get it.”
According to NPR, income seemed to “affect individual responses to the question of discrimination,” with those making less money “more likely to say that whites are discriminated against.”
The poll, which sampled 3,453 adults, only 902 of whom were white, was conducted Jan. 26-April 9, 2017. But all groups surveyed are claiming discrimination at some level.
- When asked if discrimination against their own group exists, 78% of Latinos say that discrimination against Latinos exists.
- Approximately 75% of Native Americans, 61% of Asian Americans and 90% of people who identify as LGBTQ said that discrimination existed against their own groups exists in America.
- 92% of African Americans surveyed said that they believe “that discrimination against African Americans exists in America today.”
Discrimination is an unfortunate piece of the human condition and no law or excessive tax or communist wealth redistribution scheme will change it. But humanity can do better without government mandates. We can treat people the way we’d like to be treated, regardless of the exterior packaging.
You lost me at “a poll conducted by NPR.”
NPR is nothing but a bunch of self intitled, PC pro-liberal biased MSM, pro-gun control fuk sticks who think their own shit doesn’t stink. Any poll conducted by a pro-liberal MSM news (I use that term very loosly with NPR) organization can hardly ever be trusted to be accurate!
Without white people this country would quickly revert to what present day Somalia looks like. The infrastructure that exists would cease to function within weeks without the white brain.
Worldwide, White people are a much smaller minority than Asians, Hispanics, Blacks and Indians.
White people make up less than 10% of the world population. We have a birth rate so low that we may go extinct in the not too distant future. Asians make up the largest demographic in the world.
John, agreed about NPR but there really is discrimination against white people in this country and it’s been going on since the 80s. I’m just surprised to see an article form an MSM source acknowledging that it exists.
It is open season on white people…
What a poorly educated, nasty, foul mouthed boy you are. Perhaps you’ll grow into a man someday. That’s “self entitled”, by the way…
Zlatko, you filthy bleeding heart apologist for the minorities, go f#$% yourself. We stand up for white people and don’t apologize to anyone for it.
Zlat got bored ver at Michael Snyder’s sites so he figured he’d drop by here where real men hang out. He didn’t realize we’re not currently looking for a fluffer ??
Grunty, LOL. Good one.
I didn’t get bored, I got banned, more than once by that Stalinist puke. He doesn’t like it when his lying propaganda is challenged. How old are you anyway, 12? Your humor is puerile…(look it up)…
You’d better switch to decaf man….
Zlatco fails to recognize that by legislating privileged classes like blacks and LBGTQ’s (hate crimes), the state has diminished the citizens that are not designated as privileged. Murder, kidnapping, and other crimes are already illegal. EQUAL PROTECTION UNDER THE LAW requires that all citizens receive EQUAL judicial treatment. You cannot have an asinine idea like HATE CRIMES for certain groups and believe there is EQUAL PROTECTION UNDER THE LAW. This concept was brought about by ignorant politicians only concerned with more votes and more power.
Cranerigger, damn good points. You especially cannot have the concept of ‘some people are MORE equal than others’. No legitimate basis for that at all.
Convention on the
Prevention and Punishment
of the Crime of Genocide
Adopted by Resolution 260 (III) A of the United Nations General Assembly on 9 December 1948.
The Contracting Parties confirm that genocide, whether committed in time of peace or in time of war, is a crime under international law which they undertake to prevent and to punish.
In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:
(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;

The following acts shall be punishable:
(b) Conspiracy to commit genocide;
(c) Direct and public incitement to commit genocide;
(d) Attempt to commit genocide;
(e) Complicity in genocide.
The rest of the articles cane be found by search online.
The eight stages of genocide:
We are now between stages 5 and 6, for the coming White Genocide. The people behind this have been working on it for a century.
In Europe it is currently coming to pass, through the Kalergi Plan. In the US and Canada, through Cloward-Piven type plans.
White people had better wake up. Your appeals to humanity mean nothing to those who intend on exterminating your people.
For White people, there is now only one relevant question:
“Do you want the White race (yes, race is real) to survive, or not?”
If not, then do nothing, and watch your people continue to be killed by all means, slow, and fast.
If yes, then you must prepare to make hard choices, and do hard things.
JustMe, 100 million gun owners in this country can stop those plans.
Let’s hope they actually have the brains and spines to do so…
we are the NATION of discrimination. everybody’s got an angle to exploit here.
The government created this shit. You remember affirmative action and equal opportunity employment right? Or the sign that states women and minorities encouraged to apply. Companies get kickbacks in one way or another for hiring women and or minorities. I am not against the hiring of anyone as long as it is fair. There is no fair opportunity.
Menzo, damn straight. The ‘minority people’ LIE when they cry discrimination. They get all kinds of special treatment under federal law and have been since the 80s. Especially the immigrants. They get straight onto the freeloader programs and white people’s tax money is still expected to fund it. There are more companies than ever discriminating against our people. The censorship policies in place at companies nowadays are aimed ONLY AGAINST WHITE PEOPLE AND NO MINORITY GROUPS AT ALL. Say the wrong thing at a company and you’re white, you get shown the door. But be a member of any of the minority groups and make the same remark, no controversy, no problem, nothing happens to them. The censorship policies are definitely race-based and discriminatory. Affirmative action is a race-based and discriminatory policy. Except for the disability program, white people can’t get a damn thing from government.
Texas4570, the damn black civil rights groups created this and just used govt. to make it happen. If we could return to merit-based hiring we could bring back fairness.
Texas-4570,I sure do remember it. I applied for a job right out of college and out of fifty candidates it got down to me, another white male with military background, a female and a black male. The female and the black male were selected for the two positions. I was later sent a letter from the prospective employer stating that the two who were selected received the positions to fulfill the mandated Federal Quota for minorities.
And yes, it was for an LEO position.
They were otherwise known as ‘tokens’.
Years ago I tested for a position in a law enforcement agency. I finished #1 and anxiously awaited an interview. After a couple of months I contacted the agency and they said they filled the positions already. An officer with that agency confidentially told me that their department had only intended on hiring females and non-whites to the open positions. eh, discrimination, but guess what? I moved on and eventually got a job with another agency. Didn’t have time to protest, whine, curl up in fetal position, I had a family to take care of and goals to fulfill.
Illinois State Police did the same thing for years during the 80s and early 90s and they let you know about it during the orientation meeting. They were eventually sued for discriminating against white males and lost. I was one of the applicants that was allowed to reapply without testing after the suit. I chose not to reapply
Over the years, Affirmative Action has been overly abused. It is a System not designed for all, but designed only for those who are considered a minority and or a gender difference from being considered a male.
Though I agree there should be protection for all, especially for employment purposes. A System such as this should not be dumbing down tests for those who are unable to pass the actual requirements.
A System such as this, should not be allowed to say “we have to have such’n such of this group of people, and this many gender type people to work here.”
Affirmative Action – is nothing but a Government Mandate
America needs to do away with “labeling People”
If you are an American Citizen – then you are an American.
You are not Black, White, Brown, Yellow or Mixed Blend Of Uncertainly.
FTW, good points but the federal policy DOES NOT treat all groups of people the same. I believe in the concept of ‘equality under the law’ but the feds don’t. I especially agree about gov. needs to stop labeling people.
Make America white again.
Unfortunately discrimination is taught as being linked to the inclusion skin color in one’s genetic makeup. Prejudice is actually stronger in those who feel it for others than in those it is directed towards.
Discrimination is a good and necessary cognitive facility.
You discriminate every time you decide what to wear or eat for supper.
Discrimination is what allows you to eat an apple instead of the arsenic.
Discrimination is what leads you to pick the Glock and not the Daisy for your trip into tha ‘hood to score your crack.
A well developed discrimination faculty is necessary for self preservation. That’s why the Libtards always tell us it is bad.
68 year old Tim?? It’s not your race; it’s your age that prevents you from getting a job.
The numbers don’t add up. There must be many racists who are not white but they say only whites can be racist. Must be a lot of people lumping their personal deficiencies into the racist camp.
Gramps, the word racist was invented by communists in Europe around 1930. The purpose of the word was to intimidate white people out of political discussions, especially discussions involving diversity. Diversity is the weapon of choice for destroying Western Civilization.
Affirmative Action= textbook definition of racism
America is the most racist country on the planet. Have you ever heard of an “African Canadian”?
Neth, go find a country that works for you.
National Association for Advancement of White People would be labelled white supremacist and racist. The NAACP is not.
Funny, how there is one standard for them and another standard for us, eh?
As anyone who has worked around the world knows fully well, by far the most discrimination and racism occurs outside Western countries. Try being black and walk down a street in China, or through an airport pretty well anywhere in Asia and people will openly laugh at you (because they think you look like an ape). Or try telling a load of hindus in India to chill because you are a Muslim, or walk home in a Siberian town in the evening with a dark face, or be black in North Africa … it goes on. But we don’t want to let that secret out because, hey, by far the most fun and money-making can be had guilting perfectly reasonable, well-behaved white people.
We have to beat them at their own game. When applying for a job, fill in your race as “black”. You get the interview, and they can’t not hire you because you “look” white. It doesn’t matter what you look like you see. If you proclaim your black, then your black, until proven otherwise. And what is black anyway? How dark does your skin have to be to before your considered black, legally? See, who knows. Same goes for your legal status. Since illegals get drivers licenses, free medical, free tuition, etc…then just say that you, or your kids, are illegal. It doesn’t matter if you don’t “look” illegal. You have no documentation, so they have to accept it. If all of us “white, legal” folks did this, the system would not work, because everybody would be a minority or illegal. And if everybody is a minority or illegal, then nobody is a minority or illegal…Get it…..this is how we can beat them, and hang them by their own petard.!!!
Worked for Rachel Dolzeal, claiming she was “black!”
I am self employed. But if that is what it takes to be an employee, I would advise checking the Hispanic box, too.
Affirmative Action is not an innocent concept for creating equal opportunity. It is discrimination, by the government against, primarily, White males. It is actually a weapon for destroying part of Western Civilization in America. It is also not equal opportunity, but rather, equal outcome. A Marxist ideal. I don’t think or believe I am discriminated against by the government. I know I am discriminated against.
Him, BRAVO! That is my definition of affirmative action also. I love it when I’m on the same page with someone.
The word “racist” is a Marxist pejorative. That means it is just an insult used for argument through intimidation. Argument through intimidation indicates that the person using it can not defend their points with objective logic. Therefore, their points are illegitimate. You win the argument. While there is no such thing as racist, there is ethnocentric. Everyone is ethnocentric. That means that you favor yourself and your own ethnicity. A natural condition. He who controls the lexicon, controls the debate. If you continue to self identify as racist, then you lose.
So true, Him. This is all a Frankfurt School/Gramscian attempt to take over language and culture
Test, I wish everyone read and knew about the Frankfurt School. It would explain a lot.
Its simple….hiring someone because of the color of their skin, and not by their merit weakens the institution, agency or firm. This weakening eventually collapses the system. Case in point: Why aren’t airline pilots selected thru affirmative action, hiring quotas, or Equal opportunity Employment.? Or even further to its logical conclusion: Why can’t blind people apply to be airline pilots? After all, this is discrimination against handicapped people.? The answer would is obvious. The airline industry would virtually collapse overnight due to the extreme dangers of flying, and the countless ‘accidents/crashes’ that would happen.
And so we are witnessing the slow collapse of our western civilization. Same concept; just takes longer for the collapse. Get it.!!!!
“Why aren’t airline pilots selected thru affirmative action, hiring quotas, or Equal opportunity Employment?
Or even further to its logical conclusion:
Why can’t blind people apply to be airline pilots? After all, this is discrimination against handicapped people.?
The answer would is obvious. ”
Ill take the doctor who got his brain surgery degree through EEO and Affirmative action please, because I want to be able to self identify as a vegetable…….save myself the hassle of suing the doc for malpractice…..Ummm NO THANKS.
Neal Jensen, well said. I sometimes ask liberals “Who do you want to do your brain surgery? The smartest guy (after years of training) in your high school class, or the dumbest guy?” So far none of them have asked the follow up question, “Do you think liberals need brain surgery?”
Actually, it’s white males who are discriminated against. Take a man fully qualified for a job and a woman, white or otherwise, who is not so qualified. Most employers will chose the woman.
So, 70% of America is white. Half are males. Therefore we white guys are only 35% of the population. WE are the ones being discriminated against. WE are a minority.
BTW, it’s white males who financed, designed, engineered, and built this country. I don’t like being a racist, misogynist pig but they can’t run this country or improve it, we can.
Real story, as it is my own story. This is Canada, but applies equally to the US. As I lived in Ottawa, the nation’s capital, I would routinely apply to govt jobs, along with other jobs. My background: I have two graduate degrees, was a Novell Certified Netware Engineer AND instructor (were only several hundred in the world back in the 90s). I had teaching certification in three provinces (in Canada, it takes FIVE years, not four as in the US, to get a teaching cert). I have five languages I do, and most importantly, I scored in the 94th percentile of the govt entrance exam, after showing up right as the test started due to travel issues. I also had a half dozen years IT experience at that point, and had taught English on the post-secondary level for a few years on a sessional basis.
You might say, I was mildly qualified, n’est pas? Well, you would be wrong. Of the massive number of applications, I was only ever offered ONE possible phone interview, EVER, for a very remote position in remote Saskatchewan, where NO one wanted to go. But I never actually even got the interview.
You decide why. But I can tell you, white, male, anglophone males needed not apply. A couple years later, I applied at a local college, for a job I had done, had a grad degree AND teaching cert for, had EXCELLENT references, etc. etc. Again, white men need not have applied – it went to some woman with no grad degree, no experience, etc., and then they actually paid to put her through grad school (whereas I already had the degree). Again, you do the math.
In the US, the exact same thing happened at one of the community colleges of Chicago. The bias was so blatant, one of the panel actually sent me a note, actually apologizing in a backhanded way that that they had to hire the black woman.
I am all for hiring people regardless of race, creed, whatever, and I want ALL people to succeed. However, if we are to have a colour-blind society, WHY do they discriminate against whites, and against men, and so blatantly?
The good thing is that I have enough skills to find work in the tech field, but even more important, this arrogant, hypocritical, vile, disgusting HYPOCRISY woke me up relative to the left and its Gramscian/Frankfurt School/Alinsky schemes. They have made an articulate, committed, aggressive enemy of their ignorance and arrogance, and, as the gay-uber-alles brownshirts might have said, “I’m here, I’m NOT queer, and I am NEVER, EVER going away. Get used to it.”
In fact, just today I called Southwest Airlines, who fired a pro-life stewardess for posting something on Facebook. I told them that if this is confirmed that they fired her for that reason, I will cancel my frequent flyer card and never fly them again. Did the same with Target and their men in the womens’ washroom scam; went in and spoke directly with the store manager at Macy’s when one store fired a person for not letting a man in the womens’ washroom there.
What the fascist left is too STUPID and arrogant to get is that there are fair minded people out there, and they are slowly radicalizing them by things like, e.g., their Antifa brownshirt antics, or, e.g., trying to boycott N.C. for their bathroom stance (in fact, I wanted to see Blue Man Group – but due to their boycott of NC over the issue, forget it. I don’t need to support any organization that buys into gay fascism.
I write a LOT. I also send money to groups, e.g, like Alliance Defending Freedom.
The fascist left has awoken a tiger by the tail, and we are never, ever going away. Ever. And we WILL win. And why? Because the left is intellectually dishonest, and their ideas – as shown by the history of the past 100 years – simply SUCK. And that’s a fact
One other story. In the 90s, there was an article in the Ottawa Business News in Canada, by some feminazi, advocating that white, Anglophone men give up their jobs for others. I wrote an article in return, and a similar one published in the national Financial Post, stating that I thought it optimal to simply hire the BEST person, regardless of skin hue, sex, language (in Canada, the French thing is a big deal). Just hiring the best person, regardless of race, sex, etc. Gee, how radical!
Anyhow, these fascist feminists at the government dept in question went to my boss, and told him if he didn’t fire me, they would pull this million dollar contract from his/my company (I found out about this thru “back channels). My coward boss did as he was told.
Upshot was that I went to the US, and basically doubled my salary. So much for their Alinsky-esque antics. Also, at that time I was pretty naïve politically; however, the vile, nasty, puerile, vicious antics of the leftist feminazis like this played a major role in turning me into a committed warrior against leftist injustice, which is also seen in the disgusting machinations of the gay-uber-alles types and now that radical left.
The Canadian Government is notorious for this crap. Don’t worry, any white guy who gets the shaft by them gets the last laugh. I went to visit one office I applied to for a job and didn’t get – after getting past some of the losers on a picket line – it was filled with really fat, ugly women waddling around in polyester pant suits, and some moronic dudes from Somalia etc. who seemed to be on to a slack gig.
My career took me to Asia. It meant working as a senior manager with really hot Asian women. The kind of women you want to, well, I shall be a gent. They paid for all my expenses and housing, travel all over Asia, I was having a blast. The dirty secret is that, while back in North America they are hating on white men, large swathes of the world are in love with them. So, go there and screw the pathetic government agencies that won’t hire you. Even better, don’t pay tax there and off-shore your wealth: f them. I did this and do not work that hard and pay no tax.
Whenever I visit the US, it looks more third world and the people look more third world. The place is going downhill, so let the black lesbian managers have it. They can suck the whole thing up, I don’t care. Even better, encourage the sistas to start a war with China. Just for laughs …
I feel blessed to live in this country and to an American.
All this means to me is I have to work harder, and what I get is mine, and I Thank God He gives me the strength and wisdom to do so.
If you feel Discriminated against look around you and just look at what they have. Then think that these slime would BIOTCH is they were hung with a new rope. They should be hung with a new rope so it doesn’t break.
WE ALL ARE DISCRIMATED AGAINST IT IS HOW YOU HANDLE IT. THIS IS WHAT MAKES YOU – YOU.
“What the fascist left is too STUPID and arrogant to get is that there are fair minded people out there, and they are slowly radicalizing them by things like, e.g., their Antifa brownshirt antics, or, e.g., trying to boycott N.C. for their bathroom stance”
I am radicalized. I hate Democrats. The term Democrats is my way of grouping all the Facist left into a bucket to get past web site filters for racial, religious, and other prohibited words. I want to obliterate Democrats.
“The Greatest Happiness is to scatter your enemy and drive him before you. To see his cities reduced to ashes. To see those who love him shrouded and in tears. And to gather to your bosom his wives and daughters.” Genghis Khan.
We need to make this happen.

History replete with examples of why modern man is so……weak and characterless.
Rellik, I became radicalized the day I saw Mt. Carmel with David Koresh and his followers burning on TV. I took an oath to myself on that day that I would no longer follow any laws that could interfere with me defending myself against evildoers; that I would basically start marching to my own song. 9/11 reinforced my position. 8 years of Obama and his BS only gave me more reinforcement. We’re getting closer to civil war 2. I feel it.
Discriminate Hell. There is a war being waged against the white race.
The war is actually against white men.
Democrats like white girls.
In a lot of urban areas (most), you will not get an entry-level job unless you are black,
wear a skirt, and your last name is Rodriquez.
Most of the people that do the hiring seem to think that every white person seeking a job
has a leg up because of “white privilege” or you have too many degrees, even if you have
Most of the people doing the hiring are not veterans. They could care less if you are.
Most of the people doing the hiring have to follow govt. mandated practices. Shhhhhhh.
They don’t want the NAACP or Nation of Islam picketing outside their corporate offices.
Or La Raza. Or Jesse Jackass. Or Al Sharpturd.
That’s funny!! I’m white and I have NEVER felt discriminated against!! At least, not for my color!! Never!! I guess we have all had different experiences.
I have felt discriminated against for my gender, however. As a female, I can tell you its very difficult being a female at times and thought of as a “thing”.
I go sit on this stone wall and this ugly guy comes out and says, “hi, beautiful!” and has this disgusting look on his face. I go on the bus and this one guy practically sits in my lap. He kept touching me and finally I blew up and told him off! I do talk to guys sometimes– as friends— but guys inevitably take it as something else and ask for my phone number or ask to go out… I don’t mind some of it– I can brush it off– but sometimes, I feel horrible! I can’t even sit on a rock to eat my food without some scum bag coming out to flirt with me!! and I’m almost 70!!! and I don’t wear make up or even brush my hair!! I put it in a bun and stick it under a baseball hat! Still, I am constantly being “hit on”… (end of rant)…Oh, and this one creep– real ugly and egotistical– had the nerve to tell me ON THE BUS that he loved me!!!Now, I feel guilty for avoiding him but I surely don’t want his unwanted attention! Sigh!! ;(
Anonymous, if you’re female the you have it made in the shade thanks to affirmative action.
Terminology such as ‘White Privilege’ is racist and offensive.
The real minority is white males. White females get the same benefits from the gubmit that the other so-called ‘minorities’get.
Finally found the Daily Stormer online and there was this hilarious term: “basketball American,” for young entitled black dudes. Couldn’t agree more. HILARIOUS.
