/me mounts soapbox
am i the only one who is pissed off by what some people call “equality”? i got turned down for a job yesterday in favor of an inept moron simply because i am white, and the company didn’t have enough black employees. needless to say, this fired me up. now i wouldn’t have been so pissed off if the guy had been as qualified or more qualified than me, but he came in there wearing nasty, torn up, dirty clothes and still got picked over me! i went in to the interviewer’s office to tell him what-for and he accused me of being racist! now if you ask me, this is racsism in it’s purest form. it may just be me, but i don’t think these so-called equal opertunity employers should exist at all! i have nothing against black people, or any people for that matter, but this is just wrong. my son is finding it hard to get into collage because all of the scholarship money is going to places like the united negro collage fund, or other such organizations that want to help “underprivilaged” children. if you notice, there are scholarships that you can get just for being black, or hispanic, or asian, but where are the white scholarships? no, you can get a scholarship based simply on your race if you’re any race but white. what ever happened to equal rights?
also: women in the military
i think that women should be allowed to be in the military, but they should have to meet the exact same requirements that a man does. they should have the same strength requirements and the should have to meet the same uniform requirements (i.e. hair length). the reason i feel this way is that one of the main arguements for women being in the armed forces is that they are just as tough as any man (BTW i agree). so if anyone wants to be in any position in any feild of work, they should all have to meet the same standards, they should not be raised or lowered for anyone.
this is going to piss some people off but i realy don’t care. this is not meant as trolling but some of you will take it that way. i am just interested in hearing your opinions on this.
