How odd: I'm white and I can recall being so poor that, when I was younger, I'd often be forced to choose between paying for food or rent: becoming so skinny that it hurt too much to sit on hard surfaces or sleep on my back because my ribs poking into my skin against gravity was uncomfortable.

I'd repeatedly steal sachets of salt and sugar from McDonald's so I could make saltwater to gargle when I had frequent throat infections and I'd eat the sugar when I started to see spots or when I couldn't concentrate because I was literally staving to death. 'Knowing that if my rent went up then I'd likely become homeless without even a car to sleep in.

Or that time some dude exited a Subway and handed me a sandwich while I was waiting at the bus stop... and I was so embarrassed that I didn't even thank him... even though it felt like he saved my life.

I guess I was somehow fortunate for the melanin level in my skin... because that, apparently, made all the difference.

Yeah, all is good now... I was able to work my way through community college to gain Software Engineering qualifications and build a great career that I love.

You better check your privilege whitey. You think you had it hard, my father only bought me THREE cars last week. My oppression is real.

Seriously, who the hell is downvoating pretty much everything lately?

Apparently the buttons on the smartphone interface are too small and too close together which makes it easy to accidentally down-vote. That said, I do often debate theology and politics with users in this sub... so my down-votes may be from butt-hurt users... or just insane SJWs.

Also, posts and comments critical of Islam tend to automatically win three silent down-votes within this sub because there seems to be three Muslim down-vote-angels who flutter around these parts (I've fondly named them Muhammad, Mohammad and Achmed-Muhammet)!

I noticed it too. It has to be Redditor SJW's coming here to fuck up our new spot. They need victims to feed on you know.

I suspect educated, white males are the target of most attacks by blacks and feminists only because they are an easy target: a civilized group who have better things to do than react to nonsense, such as raise their children and educate themselves and build successful careers, rather than chimping-out and looting.

This so much. Minorities and women are professional victims in almost a literal sense. There is a black preacher, cant remember what his name is, that goes into more detail about it. Being victims is their bread and butter and they make alot of money off it. White men actually create wealth, minorities and women for the most part just leech off the fat.

What this post is showing is the influence the retarded SJW rhetoric is having on even the most honest people like Bernie. This is one of the big reasons why Trump running exists because of regressive leftist bullshit.

Pandering to the audience. Very common tactic of politicians. Especially the dems

Yep. People are gonna freak out about this, but it's basic marketing and when it's taken out of context it is easily exploited. I'm white and have been fucked with by cops a fair amount when I grew up in a lower income area.

I think he really meant "When you're white, you're don't see the harshest of police brutality, which is a systemic problem."

It would be a lot easier for Trump if it was Trump vs Shillary. I don't know why so many people on here want Trump vs Bernie. Are you afraid of the small risk of Shillary winning, or just don't actually want Trump to win?

"or just don't actually want Trump to win?" Trump will win either way, if he debates bernie he might wake people from the PC madness. If he faces $hillary he will wake people up to all her illegal actions.

Taking it out of context, and then associating it to the white guilt propaganda narrative. I don't like what Bernie said, but his tenure in Washington and commitment to the people should stand above this mistake he made.

Sanders has done nothing noteworthy in his entire life outside his human rights activism. Yes he's a good person for that and I commend him, but when he's saying that white people don't know what it's like to be poor, he's a fucking idiot.

I lost a lot of respect for him having heard him say this negro/SJW-pandering bullshit. All of these candidates are insane. I want Trump to win just to see all the liberals cry.
