not a victim

This thread is nuts. I don’t think the article meant anything by it. I don’t think running is all white. That’s a bogus claim. I’m Black by the way. Distance running in America is overwhelmingly white. That’s not a bad thing that’s just facts. Black Americans tend to do 100-800 m. I don’t know if it’s a racism thing. There are tons of 1:45 Black dudes that could go sub 4 in the mile or maybe move up to the 5 K. There are a bunch of white dudes that could move down to the 800 m too instead of 1500/5/10. Black Americans see Black sprints and mid distance Runners do well so they do it. That’s all the article is saying. I don’t get all this Jew anti white racism stuff. Y’all taking this too seriously.
^This. Lots of triggered white conservative snowflakes posting on this thread. You guys are seriously thin-skinned if this story offended you. If you have to resort to “what if this story was about x,y, or z minority group” then you are displaying the same “victim mentality” the right often accuses minority groups of displaying.
When someone says "but X is far from perfect," whatever follows is implied to be a bad thing.
"...but my neighborhood is far from perfect. Many of the old brownstones have been replaced by modern steel and glass high rises." When you read this, do you assume that I do not like modern steel and glass high rises and that I prefer the older housing stock, or do you assume that I am just making a neutral statement about changes in local architecture?
No, I don't think that I am a victim. I do not subscribe the mindset that one has to be a victim to have an opinion. I will feel perfectly free to think the author is a moron despite my own lack of victim status.
