Ethan wroteI feel you.

Although I have never really felt discrimination to the extent that a woman or person of a minority has felt, it does hurt my feelings that my campus has had protests against white men.

Also feels weird when I am walking through my campus student center and someone hands me a pamphlet saying "The United States is falling because of the white man! Fight back now!"

Fight back? Makes me feel like I am the enemy of people.

My close friend was denied a computer science internship because they were only accepting women. They have to meet their quota of not being sexist and racist by hiring minorities and women.

It is what it is I guess. Being a white male, I can not quite fully understand my white privilege.

Perhaps this will make you laugh, as it did for me! Most of the stuff he addresses is completely real, but he does it satirically and sarcastically.

I love it, haha and the piano is incredible! I'm listening to his other vids now haha

This is truly ridiculous, why are you playing the race card? You fell down, you were denied, just stop sitting around and crying about it,. This is not a life or death situation boo hoo you didn't get what you wanted that's life. And as for getting threats while walking downtown or something--- as a black man I don't like it either, I get dirty looks all the time, notice ladies clinching their purse, hell I work at a hospital I've had an old white man tell me to "Put the tray over there boy" I'm only 18 but shit like that happens. Its not the end of your life.

Making a topic on a discussion forum complaining about something
=
Acting like it's the end of your life

If he was running around the campus smashing windows, setting cars on fire, and screaming about how the system is racist against white people you might have a point, but he isn't.
He made a topic on a website explaining what his experience has been of this problem, hardly the extreme reaction you're making this out to be.

Yes, because white male = easy life.

White people can be the victims of racism and just because he isn't saying explicitly here that black people have it worse doesn't mean he doesn't believe that.
There is white racism and there is black racism, talking specifically about one of those doesn't mean you think the other doesn't exist or that you have it worse than everyone else.
Absolutely nobody is saying the white people can't experience racism because whoever thinks that is severely out of touch with reality, but maybe there are other underlying factors like maybe the other person hasn't had the financial opportunities this guy has it's not simply because he's a white male. People of all walks of life need to stop playing the race card because something doesn't go their way.

I don't disagree with that.

I'm disagreeing with the people on this topic who specifically seem to think that white people can't experience racism simply because they are white.

And yes, people are saying that. Read the quotes of the people I'm replying to.

I'm not mad I was just bothered by it I've never said or done anything about it I just made a topic to spur conversation cause I was bored. Little did I know people would think I'm trying to fight that I have it worse then other people I'm blessed that I'm able to go to school I just don't think that people should be prioritized because of who they are it literally says that they are there's still a chance that I could get it maybe I dont know
