Black people have a Congressional Black Caucus. White people don’t. Black people have #BlackLivesMatter. White people don’t. White people are hated because of their skin color.
Racism towards white people exists. Now I know that your first bigoted instinct is to immediately discredit me for being a spoiled white man who doesn’t understand black peole but I’ve been to more black countries than most people so you lose on that one.

White people oftentimes aren’t allowed to have problems. Our “white privilege” supposedly prevents us from fully appreciating the suffering of others, and is to blame for our narrow-minded and superior attitudes. Pardon my french, but that’s crap. White people invented compassion.
Any type of prejudice or discrimination towards any person based on their skin color is blatant racism regardless what the less enlightened people think.
A “Miss Black America” contest is held every year in the United States. If a similar pageant was organized exclusively for white women, protesters would be screaming “Racism” and calling for justice and claiming society was moving backwards. If black skinned people can celebrate their culture, why can’t I do the same? Racism. RACISM AGAINST WHITE PEOPLE.
The Legacy of slavery.
Slavery ended in 1865 with the 13th amendment. That was 152 years ago. That was almost eight generations ago. There have been no slaves in America for 152 years yet some people claim and actually believe slavery was eliminated just a little while ago so they bring it up as oppression even though it’s false.
There are millions more white people in America so there are more targets to hate for those who hate white people.
Where does the hate end? Nowhere. Hate is part of humanity so we’re all stuck with it. Happy Hatin’t.

In 1948, Mahanoy City became the first municipality in the country to have Cable TV.
But in 1947, Mahanoy City, PA was not a booming market for television sets because televisions of this era required a clear “line-of-sight” from transmitter to receiver to ensure reception. At 1,256 feet, Mahanoy City was hemmed in by an almost impenetrable ring of 1,400 to 1,700- foot mountains, which blocked the signals coming from the major transmitting stations in Philadelphia. Who would want to buy an expensive new television set when there was nothing to watch?

In June 1948, Walson decided to bring the mountaintop down to his Service Electric store at Main and Pine Streets. To do so, he ran a length of heavy duty, twin-lead Army cable, purchased at a surplus store in Philadelphia, from the top of the mountain into his store, and then fixed it to what he called an “ordinary antenna.” For a month Walson strung the cable in trees; later he secured permission to use PPL’s transmission poles in Mahanoy City. Because the signal had a tendency to lose power as it descended the mountain, Walson attached modified “boosters” at 500-foot intervals to amplify the signal. In 1949 local engineer Luther Holt improved the amplifier design.
