    I am in a university Native American Studies class and I feel like I'm getting the "your evil because your white" spheal stuffed down my throat. I am not responsible for my ancestor’s wrongs. The word ancestor even makes me laugh because I am 1/16 Cherokee. I had no part in the wrongs done to the Indian nations or the African American people and now I am punished for what I did not do. You may say that I benefit from being born in a white family but if you put a black or a full blooded native American with the same credentials, same personality, same exact words coming out of our mouths and I get rejected for the job because I am white, dose that not seem racist to you. Is the black man or Native American superior to me because they are not white? All men are created equal, is that not what our dear country is founded on?

    No your white guilt is showing.
    NO, but you sure as hell benefitting from them. The land you live on was stolen from Indians so I think you are guilty as your ancestors. Village idiots affirmative action do not exist anymore. If you did not get the job its because you were not qualified. White do not make you superior.
    Created equal do not mean treated equal. Blacks men are at the bottom of the bucket. Ilegal aliens get hired before they do.
    Your country was founded on lies, greed and genocide.

    What I specifically feel cheated in was the scholarship field.

    I have no intention of whining to employers or any decision makers, just trying to understand...

    If I had a choice between 3 murkins for $30/hr or one "illegal immigrant" for $30/hr, I'll take the latter.

    I'm saying everything is equal except for the skin color, that includes what they would be paid (yes I know there is a disparity there sometimes but that is not what my question is about), did I come to the wrong place to get actual answers?
