they don't take into account the positions within society that their ancestors have placed upon them and more have been trying to equate their supposed plights to that of minorities.
Let me share some personal info. My Dad is black and has dealt with racism at almost all points in his life. He's a successful business man today that has been called a "Nigger" almost 30 times that he can recount. To try and keep him from dreaming as a child, to being refused jobs, to just trying to buy a house. One of my cousins was shot without question by a white cop because they mistook him for being someone else though he didn't even match nearly the same height or wearing similar clothes to a witness. His mother overheard the cop laugh with others at the scene as if it's was no big deal. When takened to court, they ruled it an accident. I myself have experienced moments personally when those around me weren't sure of my makeup would get comfortable and behave in racist manners.
I'm truly sorry for your loss, but that doens't fit the scope of what I was conveying. This is more of an isolated incident. That said, there is a pain (like mass genocide) that other ethnicity's endure and follows with them that hasn't been faced by the group with the most inherent advatages within our industrialized society (sociology). I'm half white and black. I've had the opportunity to witness both sides and have seen some absolutely disgusting things commited to minorities that most Whites can't sympathize with or are contributing. I don't wish ethnicity was a social issue, but it is and it vary's from group to group. It's really bothering when some can try to say that their pain or issues are the same under certain situations.
....Its just more bullshit my dude.
