"White people: we're going to pay hard for this shit. We're not going to just fall from number one to two; they're going to hold us down and fuck us in the ass forever. And we totally deserve it. But for now... Weeeeeee!"

I apologise for any copyright infringement but this was too good to pass up. Please contact me and I will remove this immediately.

my blog: Hobby Lobby Schmobby Lobby (July 5/2014): It’s a V for Victory for Vasectomies and Viagra and a Vote against Vaginas.

I posted this article on Open Salon and received a couple of interesting comments. Serious? Joking? I'll let you decide.

Hey now, remember that everybody has the very same chances, and that if you experience hardships, it's because you're lazy and expect hand-outs and so I refuse to help you because if I don't keep all the money I have I won't have the will to work any more. Thank me - It's for your own good, you taker!

White males know what other groups don't: that if you're not getting what you think you deserve and can't blame it on someone else... it just may be that you're not good enough.
