    1.Being on here, most of you should have a bit of common sense and know "White Male Privilege" doesn't really exist.

    2.Along with being racist because of the color of your skin and hating whites is not racist if your white.

    3.Feminist fighting for equal rights when the only right that is not equal between male and female is that male cant fight the other gender without getting in worse trouble, when "feminist" female fights a male and the male pushes her away the girl almost always over react yet that's what they are fighting for.

    4.The more then two genders, even thought gender is a way to clarify what body part you have.

    5. And last of all everyone helping Muslims. i am not saying all Muslims are bad, but the quaran and the hadith state that any person of other religion must be punished, even kids have to get down with there father at least till 8, Muslims are even mocking Americans yet we still let them enter. and we say that its way better to be in a Muslim country then here.

    >Whats happened to our common sense?
    >Please correct me if you disagree or add more to my point if you agree with anything on here

    I agree. We, as a white race, are told we have privilege, but due to affirmative action, other races have priority when hiring. Many of us have no health insurance (including myself). Many of us cannot get food stamps (EBT). I tried when I was single and poor, but they wouldn't give me any. I was just by passed a full time job at work. The position was given to a hispanic man who has been there for only 2 weeks. (My boss only hires hispanics. I was hired by another person). As I sit there with missing teeth because I cannot afford it, I know that other races can march in and get free services. I don't see any privilege.

    Don't get me wrong. I will NOT judge a person based on their race. But it goes both ways. Many judge ME and make assumptions. White hate and prejudice DOES exist. It's racism.

    Privilege is something that is earned through hard work and dedication. It isn't something you are born with. If you study hard at medical school and become a doctor, you can enjoy the privileges that it brings. If you study hard and become a lawyer, you are rewarded. None of this is handed out to anyone. There are black and hispanic judges, doctors, lawyers, etc. who understand that hard work brings rewards.

    Privilege vs. Rights? A Privilege is issued by another human and a Right is bestowed upon us from our creator?
    I ask for no Privilege, but I demand my God given Rights and will fight for them if need be.
    Our founders understood the need for the inclusion in writing of a "Bill of Rights" in our U.S. Constitution.
    If all men are created equal then why should there be affirmative action that allows the less qualified person get the job?
    We have seen a growing number of problem police shootings that may be related to affirmative action hiring.
    Ask yourself if you would use a black doctor to save your child's life?
    Be honest and true to yourself when you answer the above question and think before you answer!

    Me? I have zero problems with race. One of my childrens' physicians is from India and the other is Jewish. I love them both.
    They are very caring, excellent doctors. I would have no problems with a black man saving my child. But that's me. I can't speak for anyone else.

    My concern has to do with the old "Low Bidder" issue only and not skin color. The affirmative action program has allowed the people was a lower grade level to become doctors at the expense of the higher qualified students. The standard has been the issue of good, better, and best for a long time, and I would want my kids to receive the best doctor care and NOT the lower level of medical treatment. Why call upon a plumber qualified person to repair my kids heart valve? "Good enough for government work" is not good enough for my child.

    You make good points, but a less experienced doctor is better than NO doctor, is it not? He would still most likely have more knowledge and experience than us. :) Example, in Walking Dead Denise became the colony doctor. If I remember correctly, she was either in medical school or worked as an EMT or something along those lines. So, even though she wasn't a doctor, she was the most qualified to be one.

    The above report represents a wrongful death rate per "YEAR"! Also, that number represents only the reported deaths by doctors, so you know how that works? "Figures can lie and Liars can Figure". The slick talking people are the ones that run the world, so it may help to be smarter than a doorknob to read between the liars?

    Now on to a more pressing subject: North Korea may have NBC ("Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical") weapons and they may also have a delivery system soon. The leader of that country has always continued to make threats that he will some day have the ability to take the South and hurt the US someday. Irrational thinking people such as we see in the middle east and as is obvious with the leader Kim of North Korea should be taken as a real threat to the peace in that region of the world. History has proven to us that Hitler may have been stopped if we acted sooner. The past democratic administrations allowed this problem to happen because they knew it would cause a political loss for them. If Trump were to do nothing he will be re-elected, but during that do nothing time North Korea may gain the upper hand with the ability to strike with nuclear missiles on our shores.
    With the first to carrier groups headed towards Korea the Russians have entered the fray by sending one of their carrier groups to dog ours. They have a new electronics blocking weapon system that could ground our aircraft, so we are now sending two more carrier groups to follow within two or three weeks for a total of four. We should be able to gain a window of opportunity to strike North Korea because we can get more assets there quicker then Russia. I would plan for trouble in about two to six weeks. This is not a drill folks! In fact I believe we are closer to a nuclear event today then we were back when JFK faced off with Cuba. Remember to pray!
