I hate racism of ANY kind. And I hate hypocrisy almost as much. Now whenever I hear someone claiming X is racist in US society, for example the prison system, they usually make the statement “the % of blacks in the US is about 20% (or whatever), so we should expect the prison population to reflect that. Because it doesn’t (black% much much higher) that’s evidence that the prison system (and law enforcement) is racially biased.” That’s the rough argument and rough %‘s.
Ok, so using that same argument, since the US Olympic team is definitely NOT 80% white, isn’t that evidence of discrimination? And in some events even, say Track, the % of whites in the finals is almost 0%. Should there be some type of Affirmative Action for Whites in US Olympics?
No I’m not some nutjob neo-nazi. I hate’m, disagree with’em, want them all to go to you know where. BUT I can see some of them making this exact type of argument.
SO how would you respond?
