A cop lied on police report about 2 felony charges because I mouthed off to him submitted by stillinit to AskVoat

He most likely lied because he's seen enough girls in abusive relationships to know that they never press charges(and has probably known a few to get murdered). He figured that you had some felony coming to you so he made up a charge. Not sure how I feel about it but personally I feel you should be charged with some sort of battery.

Can someone explain white guilt? Why does it exist? submitted by 123_456 to AskVoat

Of course it does and it always will. But I don't blame people - most racism is subconscious like perhaps sexism is. Someone is different than we are and so we treat them differently. We're trying to train ourselves against the years of evolution that taught us otherwise. Yes, I think racism and sexism are products of evolution, but we're trying to improve and that's what matters.

What's the shadiest thing that's happened at work among your boss, coworkers, clients, etc? submitted by mistermerrr to AskVoat

The coworker placed her purse inside the same cupboard as the 'lost and found'?

I don't know much about White guilt but your last statement is wrong. It's not like the cheating scenario at all. Because typically, murder, rape, and forced enslavement for 245 years doesn't come with cheating. So just imagine slavery for a second. Seeing your mother raped. Father beaten. Sister sold and raped. That's going to play a major role in your family's future generations, not to mention the end of slavery didn't mean that Blacks were automatically accepted by society. Blacks grew to adopt a counter-culture of their own to combat the racism of the time and now they're being told to forget and possibly deny that culture they grew up in and adopt the white culture.

I'm not going to say White people can be blamed entirely for the economic condition of most Black people today. But I will say that their history together has obviously played a factor in their respective average economic conditions.

Firstly, slavery didn't happen "hundreds" of years ago. It happened 150 years ago. And it doesn't matter who enslaved them - the fact of the matter is that they were enslaved and now live the consequence of that. You can't deny that their history plays a major role in the current state of their culture and economic condition and so should be helped. I actually believe that the reason many European nations have become socialized is because of nationalism - a coherent race within a nation. America remains divided on welfare because of racial issues.

I think it's more complicated than "poor people are just shitty people". For one, people's races and relative social classes plays a large part in how generous they are to one another. If someone sees you as the same race and social class, they're more likely to be generous to you, and this behavior perpetuates itself. A White(or Black) person making 20K a year probably isn't going to feel very guilty about not helping a Black(or White) guy in a suit when his Ferrari breaks down. Additionally, rich people tend to have more things in general and so can afford to give more, which explains why you perceive them as being more generous. And poor people tend to have more children, more jobs, and less things which is why they generally cannot afford to be generous.

In my experience, rich people tend to be generous with money, and poor people tend to be generous with their time, possibly because they cannot be generous with their money. For example, a rich family would probably order a catered meal for a small party and poor people would rather do some sort of potluck. They're both generous in their own way.
