    @Buster , I clearly don't understand the point you are making.

    vengie equated having your abilities and position questioned to people 'clutching their purse when you approach.' As if this was a comparable experience. As if it wasn't the same experience women and POC also don't deal with.


    You've gone from

    "Maybe if they didn’t get positions based on quotas and overt racism/sexism, people would stop saying that."

    to

    "What did I personally do to deserve blowback? Be specific."

    Are you for real? You're go from justifying such broad generalizations, to demanding to be treated on your own merits. Can you not see the irony?

    Also:



    I guess it's only racist if "they" put you in a group?
    Yeah, no clue where you're getting confused. I'll try explaining further.

    There are racist/sexist identity tokenism quotas at companies. I worked at one. I was involved in the hiring process. My VP had his bonus held back if he didn't hire a specific number of visible minorities. Minorities were defined as any woman, or any non-white or non-Indian male. So when women got those jobs, they had to deal with people wondering if they got it as a result of the diversity mandate. I said that would happen and it did. So the ones who were qualified and would have got the job anyway had to deal with extra bullshit being second guessed by everyone, and they were worse off. Without that policy, this isn't a question that comes up.

    You should have seen the look on my manager's face when the VP promoted a woman who reported to him to a higher level than he was at. She still wasn't his boss, she was just more senior than her boss.

    If you couldn't tell, I don't support these types of policies. It's bullshit for them and it's bullshit for me. So I'm entirely consistent on this matter. Clear?

    Haha, my wife and I didn't totally agree on whether or not these policies were justifiable. That was until she was told there are too many white women (and there are barely any women period) and they need more representation of women of color. Suddenly that game wasn't so fair anymore. I got a good laugh as I invited her to take a seat at the table of the oppressors.

    It's not like we were turning women away either. We could not find any. They just weren't applying. We screwed some dude out of an offer because the VP said to hold it until we interview a woman first. We tried for a month and there just weren't any that applied for that role. He couldn't wait any longer, so we had to part ways.

    With all the mixing over the next 100 years, definitely something 'beigy'. Except for Icelanders and Scandinavians, they only sleep with their cousins. Their beautiful, beautiful cousins.

    I didn't do a very good job, then.

    Short version? White middle aged males that aren't poor get blamed for many of the ills of society. This doesn't mean they are disadvantaged, just that they are blamed.

    Lots of people here got triggered when I essentially repeated what society says erry day.

    You did so under the context that you and yours are hated more than visible minorities.

    Well, the people burning shit by the thousands in the US aren't leaving friendly notes that say: "gee wiz white peeps, we're a little disappointed in how things are currently being run around here. Could you, pretty please, try a bit harder to have everyone end up equal?"

    Feel free to argue about whether hatred is an appropriate word, I'm not hung up on it.

    You might be in one of the top 10 demonized/villified minorities in the Western World. That is the closest term that comes to mind, but even then, I doubt you are near to #1.

    I guess that's true, but also kind of meaningless and irrelevant to the discussion.

    So even though ones who were qualified and would have got the job anyway had to deal with bullshit...which was my fucking point. That this kind of questioning isn't limited to white men, who have had a long history of their own kind of hiring advantages. Less codified, sure. But definitely there (this is even ignoring the freebies like 'coloured's need not apply').

    "What did I personally do to deserve blowback? Be specific."

    What did the people "who were qualified and would have gotten the job anyway" personally do to deal with extra bullshit? What did they personally do to be second guessed by everyone?

    Maybe you didn't do anything. You're just unlucky to have been put into a group because of something out of your control.
