Are you female? Or white male? Congratulations, you have been awarded a special status that will pay for another government initiative- which you have no right to participate in yourself.
President Obama will be hosting an event Thursday, February 13th, announcing his new initiative “My Brother’s Keeper,” taking action in “partnership with foundations, businesses, and others to make sure that every young man of color who is willing to work hard and lift himself up has an opportunity to get ahead and reach his full potential.”
The White House Office of The Press Secretary said that this initiative is the continued effort “to make good on the President’s pledge to use his pen and phone to make 2014 a year of action.”
In other words; yet another program designed by the Obama Administration in the name of fairness and equality.
Clearly, you being a lady- or pale- just ain’t fair to those who aren’t. Just count all the opportunities you have, and others don’t, because of your copious estrogen level, or lack of pigment.
I just wonder how far an initiative like this would go if the intended recipients were only those “not of color?”
Now, I have no problem supporting hard work. And ironically hard workers are the last to need special government hand-outs.
However, as a female, pasty-white immigrant, I’d like to point out that there is no such a thing as reverse discrimination. It’s just plain and simple- discrimination- no matter which skin shade and gender that has been singled out.
So who is my brother’s keeper? Female white Americans?
