Is there such a thing? I know several white males who have feelings similar to those of people we would typically think of being "oppressed." They feel excluded from discussions about discrimination because they are The Man. If nonwhites are oppressed, it is implied that whites are oppressing them; the same is true for women and men, non-Christians and Christians, working class and upper class, gay and straight.

The people who express these feelings are in no way trying to downplay the experiences of minorities, but feel like people want them to be ashamed simply for being born a white male.

I'm going to take this oppurtunity to formally apologize for accidently being born with a phallis and a lack of active melanin in my dermis.

I know that in a class i took at app called american ethnic lit the teacher was raciest towards white males. Her name was tammi wapanoca or however u spell it. It was obvious that if u were a white male then everything you did was wrong, but if u were a black female you were God's gift to earth. My point is that if u are a white male dont take this teacher, you wont make a better grade than a C.

And i too would like to apologize for being a white male, it seems to be some kind of a sin these days.
