    Charged more for cars???

    I never heard that one that's crazy.

    I'm naming my children names that are unmistakably Black …

    That whole "don't name him that he'll never get a job" thing is weak.

    Many of us were already aware of this unfortunate reality, so all the cited studies did were confirm it. The sad part is even in the face of evidence, whites will still deny their white privilege.


    FYI this tidbit from the video:
    White legislators did not respond as frequently to constituents with black sounding names - in both political parties.

    Is pretty damning to the typical, oft-repeated rebuttal of "there are peaceful and more productive ways of expressing your concerns, like talking to your local legislators..." in response to more radical approaches.

    .

    Found this video on that 🤬 ass buzzfeed. The white people on the comments were pretty shocked and were like " man it's 2015, let's end this"

    The only reason to why they had compassion was because the video was shown by the feminist whites at buzzfeed.

    Let worldstar put that up and its propaganda.

    They know that "they" are the only problem to why racial discrimination exist.

    Good post.

    I have always said that when you take all of these and other studies together, there can be no doubt that racial discrimination remains alive and well. You almost have to be willfully obstinate to be doubtful in face of all these studies.

    These sorts of studies should be more widely disseminated.

    This video makes me want to take a white friend with me to buy a car. Pretend she's buying the car then reveal the truth right before its time to sign the paperwork.

    Studies show that white women pay more for cars too.

    This 🤬 get me mad af sometimes. I'm 6'5 , 270 so I somewhat understand how I can make people uncomfortable but in reality I'm the reason you make it down that street safe cause no one is gonna try that 🤬 around me, and if they did I'm the 🤬 that might get active. Its irritating for real.

    You don't have to look any farther than the comments section of that video to see that the bold is true.
