Preferential Treatment And Ethnicity

 

Preferential Treatment And Ethnicity

By Chance Kelsey, chancellorfiles.com

Chance: Do certain ethnic groups, genders, and people deserve preferential treatment in certain situations? I say yes, it just depends on how the preferential treatments are distributed, implemented, and how long should these  preferential programs last. Did blacks deserve affirmative action yes, did women and other non whites deserve affirmative action yes. They all deserved it because of the racial discrimination that whites directed towards them. White Americans were the majority, and currently still are, and by them being the majority they could racially discriminate with almost impunity against other non white ethnic groups, and even against women. Another reason affirmative action and other government funded programs are justified is because of the one drop rule (ODR), the one drop rule said that if you have one drop of black blood in you then you are black. This unfortunately sent thousands upon thousands of mixed race people into the black race against their will.

Those mixed race people who had white phenotypes (physical appearance) the majority of them went on and joined the white race. Those who were mixed and showed some visible sings of black ancestry were forced to join the black race even though they wanted to remain their own separate group. This tore many mixed race families apart because some looked white in appearance, others looked mixed with black and white, and some were mixed with black white, and Native American. All mixed race people who were mixed with black and white or black Native American and white or mixed with black and some other ethnic group were called mulattoes. Forcing mulattoes (mixed race) to choose between joining the black or white race caused a lot of mental and emotional pain mulattoes. It destroyed their uniqueness of culture to a major degree.

Therefore, because the mixed race were forced under the ODR to join the black race affirmative action and other social benefits were justified because the mixed race had to endure lost of their own independence, lost of their own independent culture, loss of property (land), and racial discrimination directed towards them at the hands of whites, and mistreatment at the hands of blacks who were jealous of them because the mulattoes were mixed with white. Yes affirmative action and certain programs were created to help remedy injustices committed by whites against blacks, but at the same time many mixed race people are still labeled black against their will. So often people forget about the mixed race people and call them light skin blacks, and by calling them light skin blacks this puts them in the category of black. This means that what ever happens to blacks go or bad happens to mixed race people (mulattoes) as well whether mixed race people like it or not. This is not good, and it needs to be changed.

Chance: As I have stated there is nothing wrong with  preferential treatment because it is often the result of injustices committed by the ethnic group in power or people in power. Therefore, the govenmrnt is justified in trying to correct past wrongs. The question is how long should special (preferential)  treatment programs remain active for those who benefit from them? Affirmative action and other  preferential treatment programs that are directed at certain non whites will definitely disappear someday,and the creation of these programs were justified. Blacks and mixed race (mulattoes) suffered a lot more racial discrimination than other non white ethnic groups at the hands of white Americans. Native Americans situation is totally different from other non white ethnic groups because the Native Americans were the first racial group in America and they were the ones who were invaded by whites. So many of the preferential programs and treatments that Native Americans receive is justified because their land was taken away from them by whites.

 

Why Non White Ethnic Groups Criticize Blacks

 (pandering to whites)

Chance: Regarding the issue about why some non whites who benefit from these preferential programs then turn around, and attack blacks with criticism because certain blacks in general still support these programs continuation needs to be addressed. The major reason is, it is a know fact in America that if you criticize and attack blacks white America will give your ethnic group an honorary status of white. This honorary white status does not mean you are genetically white, but it means that you will be treated better and not racially discriminated against by whites to the same unpleasant degree that blacks are. Once this white status is obtained then many members of these various non white ethnic and racial groups feel they no longer need affirmative action and other preferential programs.

Interesting isn’t that many non whites come from other countries and their children are first and second generation Americans but many of these immigrants came from countries that were more poverty stricken, corrupt, lacking civil rights, bad economy, etc but yet look down on black Americans and mixed race (mulattoes). How come these people did not stay in their own countries and create a civil rights movement their and do things to make their country better? Mixed race and blacks made life a lot better in America for all non whites including women of color and white women too.

White Americans are the major blame for the game of criticize blacks and we will give you an honorary, but now with legal and illegal immigration increasing especially Latino immigration whites are threatened by the demographic changes, and an honorary white status is losing its appeal because certain locations are becoming non white — so there is no need to pander to whites in those locations.

Whites have to pander to which ever non white ethnic group is in power in certain locations. Some area are predominantly non white meaning they are mixed with various non white ethnic groups. Someday preferential treatment will not be necessary because the America will become predominately mixed race.

 

Preferential programs and treatments are justified in general, as said previously how long should these special government sponsored programs last that is the question?

    “Someday preferential treatment will not be necessary because the America will become predominately mixed race.”

    There will still be preferential treatment of women. It’s a dilemma: on the one hand, getting treated badly warrants special treatment and on the other hand getting special treatment practically warrants getting treated badly (because then people might lose respect by seeing that you didn’t make it alone).

  2. Chance

    Time will tell who will be getting preferential treatment in the future, we have to wait, and see whom the new victims will be, and then we shall see if they deserve preferential treatment or continue receiving it.

  3. Elle

    At this rate, blacks will never let go of being victims because it has power.

  4. Chance

    Elle said: At this rate, blacks will never let go of being victims because it has power.

    My response: All ethnic groups have something to never let go of that made them victims and has power over them.

  5. Elle

    My response: All ethnic groups have something to never let go of that made them victims and has power over them.

    Other than blacks and Jews I don’t see any ethnic groups/women playing victim.

  6. Chance

    Other than blacks and Jews I don’t see any ethnic groups/women playing victim.

    My response: I am not going to waste time with this seriously, the whole world is filled with victims and oppressors. Oppressors are victims sometimes themselves and victims are oppressors sometime themselves. Women and all ethnic groups suffer in one form or another this is reality, and you know this a reality. Jews have helped the world, and if it was not for them we would be in a more difficult situation.

    Damn you don’t have to be mean about it.

    I did not mean to come across as mean spirited. No harm intended. It is all good at chancellorfiles, I appreciate the participation.

    AP’s response:

    What I have always found to be interesting
    about the entire Affirmative-Action debate
    is that numerous studies have repeatedly
    shown that it’s largest beneficiaries are
    *not* ‘people-of-color’ –but rather– are
    actually ‘White women’ and ‘gay White men’.

    VThe Veterans and the Disabled (many
    of whom are also White) then follow.

    Afterward, the people-of-color are
    then considered — and usually it
    is in the order of Asian, Latino,
    Amerindian, Mixed-Race, the the
    Black men, then the Black women.

    What is so very facsinating about the studies
    is that they also reveal that the very group
    that seems to receive the largest benefits
    from Affirmative Action (i.e White people)
    also seems to have a large number of members
    who oppose it simply due to their being under
    the extremely false impression that it is
    the people-of-color who benefit from it and
    that this benefit is obtained to the hurt
    of and to the exclusion of the White people.

    This false perceptions that some people hold
    (as pertains to who is or is not eligible for
    to receive the benefits of Affirmative-Action)
    according to most studies, simply, in reality,
    could not be any further from the truth.

    @ AP,

    I did not know that, I am going to have to do some research on that study. If you have any links or sites that have those studies I would appreciate it. I will search my self also. WOW! It is amazing how having a commenting section on a blog allows one to grow in knowledge because the commenters share their insights, links, knowledge about various topics, refer you to other websites (forums and blogs), meeting very interesting commenters (posters), etc I see why many people now feel that a blog is more powerful when it comes to interaction than a static website (website only has links).

    A blog has links and a commenting section. The commenting section was one of the greatest inventions for blog.

    Thanks AP and all of you commenters out there who visit the intellectual mad house (chancellorfiles).
