Some people get all the breaks. But the question is: discrimination or bigotry? Discrimination allows you to tell the difference between red and blue. Bigotry is hating blue for some arbitrary reason.
...when statistics about other racial differences have been cited in the same strident voices when other statistics showed blacks laid off more than whites during economic downturns or the children of black women having higher infant mortality rates than the children of white women.So are whites suffering from discrimination or they the victims of bigotry? There is no way just a number can tell that story. You have to look into the hearts of men.
What we have very seldom seen or heard in such parading of statistics are other statistics— which are readily available— showing that (1) whites are turned down for mortgage loans more often than Asian Americans, (2) whites resort to subprime loans more often than Asian Americans, (3) whites have been laid off more in a downturn than Asian Americans, and (3) the children of white mothers have higher infant mortality rates than the children of mothers of Filipino or Mexican ancestry, even though these mothers receive less prenatal care than white mothers.
