Thordaddy: White Privilege At Its Worst

theblacksentinel,

You act as if unequal workforce representation is self-evidently racist and sexist even though it represents nothing but the natural order of things all over the globe.

But WHY? Why do believe these things?

Why is unequal representation in the workforce in need of the kind of equality that requires government force? What will it accomplish and how does that translate into a good for society?How does an anti-white male program of discrimination, which violates the fundamental principles of your ideology, have the moral clout to perpetuate?

I doubt you’ll be able to answer my question as to why equal workforce representation through government coercion is a good thing. It just is and that’s all the rationale you need, right?

Number 1 – Why is unequal representation in the workforce in need of the kind of equality that requires government force?

Well that is pretty obvious. Given that The Civil Rights Act of 1871 which applies to public employment or employment involving state action prohibiting deprivation of rights secured by the federal constitution or federal laws through action under color of law. Title VII is the principal federal statute with regard to employment discrimination prohibiting unlawful employment discrimination by public and private employers, labor organizations, training programs and employment agencies based on race or color, religion, gender, and national origin. Basically this is stating that it is ILLEGAL to discriminate in hiring practices means that the government has a duty to enforce these laws by any means necessary.

Not to mention since The Civil Rights Act of 1871 none of the business sector actually followed the law. So it was obvious from the wanton law breaking that it was going to take an act of force to get companies to adhere to said laws. I guess Thordaddy would have us all still waiting to be able to participate in employment opportunities to this day. The market which is white dominated had and has not one compelling reason as to change and allow minorities to have access to opportunities. So unless Thordaddy is going to somehow convince us all that it is indeed fine to discriminate and deny groups of people their constitutionally given rights to be included in the workplace I will assume that he has nothing more to add to this conversation.

Number 2 – What will it accomplish and how does that translate into a good for society?

What a question. Anyhow, what it accomplishes is forcing the business sector which had no intention of letting minorities or women participate in their constitutional rights afforded ALL citizens by law to participate in the workforce. Whereby accomplishing a decrease in poverty which in turn makes a decrease in crime and other moral degradations. Yet we still won’t adhere to these laws thus blacks and other minorities continue to be left out of the opportunities regardless of the laws which have been in place since 1871. And he really thinks that somehow NOT doing anything will uplift our society as a whole.

Number 3 – does an anti-white male program of discrimination, which violates the fundamental principles of your ideology, have the moral clout to perpetuate?

Well according to his own silly questions he already stated that he didn’t feel that equality was fundamental to society. So why then should any of us worry about white men not being treated equally? Tell me Thordaddy, why is unequal representation in the workforce (for white men) in need of the kind of equality that requires government force? These are your words. How can you want to make things less equal for some then cry about the inequality to others. I suggest you visit the Government bureau of labor then you can show us all how white men are being discriminated against. Show us all the lack of white men in the workforce due to affirmative action.

Here I will get you started: More than 40 years after job discrimination was outlawed in the U.S., the wage gap between white men and just about everyone else persists. The one exception is Asian-American men, whose median wages were just 1% less than those of white men who worked full-time, year round, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics survey in 2005, the latest year for which this data are available.

Specifically, Black men, by contrast, earned 74% of the wages of white males; Hispanic men earned 58%. And with gender, Women, overall, are substantially lagging behind men in pay. Fulltime female employees earned 77% of all men’s median wages. Breaking it down in terms of race, Asian-American women earned 78% of the median annual pay of white men; white women earned 73%; black women, 63%; and Hispanic women, 52%. And just to dispel that myth you have that somehow white males are losing out on jobs because of black males taking advantage of affirmative action here are the numbers from the Census on working black males vs. working white males. It seems that the census says that 63% of white men are working and only 45% percent of black males have jobs.

And last but not least Throdaddy would like to know why equal workforce representation through government coercion is a good thing. Well it would be the same reason they coerce all children to go to school because coercing people into better actions actually helps our society to become better. Why do people like Thordaddy go around the blogosphere trying to coerce people into thinking as he does constantly? So according to Thordaddy the natural order of things is that white people be allowed to have unequal advantages over minorities.

But what more does anyone expect from a man reaping the benefits of white privilege to the point that he can tell everyone that the natural order of things is for whites to dominate completely and without resistance. So it would seem that anyone with eyes can see that blacks and especially not black men have any advantage over white men or white women for that matter in the workforce. I believe that I have given more than enough PROOF as laid out by our government for free for anyone with the wherewithal to go and look it up. Maybe the truth doesn’t matter and I am wasting my time trying to reason with the unreasonable.
