Minorities: Is it MORE frustrating to meet RWers of your own race?
I know it's hard for anyone but I find it especially frustrating to meet those high and mighty minority RWers. Basically their motto is fuck all those that are in lower positions because I made it - they're deluded into believing this administration gives a shit for 'em because they have a few minorities as window dressing.

Usually those I meet are college students that have mommy and daddy pay their whole way through and they have little to worry about.

In my ethnic community the parents are usually doctors and it's just about pure greed. I especially want to see these twerps sent over to Iraq.

1. You want to see them sent over to Iraq?
Haven't we done quite enough to the poor Iraqi people? Just how much more do you think we can fuck that country up?

3. I cannot say whether it is...
More or Less frustrating, than how a white person feels, but I know I am typically infuriated when I see it. The funny thing is that they feel, as you put it, that they "made it", but the fact is that they have not. There will even be a barrier to their access, at some point, no matter how far along they believe they have come. That is makes it so insidious.

4. We have Republican type latino americanos were I come from.
We've even singled out their character (or lack of) and given them a name. They're called rabi blancos. I believe that's in reference to the white tail of a specific kind of deer that holds their tail end up high. So much that it appears like it's taking on royal "airs."

They're just rich folk that have no qualms using the poverty of others to advance their own personal fortunes.

5. YES!!!!!
Actually I'm talking about disability.
Sometimes people forget it's a minority because it's the largest- 20%. And, probably because it's one you can "join."
There seem to be a lot of RWers. They drive me insane!!

6. Alas, I see that same trend in my ethnic community,
...also because most of them are physicians who've made it financially here (and some even haven't!). So have I, but the "values" (or fakeness and hipocrisy of them) of this administration make me want to lose lunch every time I hear their "leader" and other mouthpieces talk, or read what they write. I cannot fathom the selfishness and/or greed and/or religion-inspired inanity that drive them to support this bunch of crooks, thieves and liars.
