What has been done to you, as a straight white male, to oppress you, simply based on the color of your skin or your choice of religion? Please be specific.

Way too subjective

The people alive today are not responsible to pay anything (nor will they). The time for reparations to blacks (if any were to be paid) would have been during the Reconstruction. And even if we did force reparations - it would only cause more division: 1) No amount of money would ever be enough, 2) the vast, vast majority of white Americans come from ancestry that this not have slaves

Not at all. Equally enforce the laws and equally apply scholarly, cultural, and institutional standards.



I compared the "boogie man" rhetoric

Those White Nationalist had the right to march. ANTIFA had right to be present, but they did not have the right to physically interfere with the parade.

His ancestors may have been enslaved by roving Arab hordes in Europe and he has familial PTSD.

I try to leave my subjective experiences out of the discussion - as much as possible. Even if I had answered with a list , you would say sarcastically "Oh, poor white male, can't handle a little discrimination after centuries of discriminating others..." No matter what, I can't win in your eyes. If I'm successful, it's all because of privilege. If I fail, it's because I REALLY suck at life. So - I just keep on....Working. Paying my mortgage and taxes. Serving my country. Taking care of my family...

Of course, I guess I could sell everything I own and give it away....but even then, that is such a "privileged" way of thinking....
