    What are your thoughts on this?

    Example when you make a joke about say white people, then a pale Asian tries to get in to get offended about a joke on Caucasian people by a Caucasian. (this literally just happened on Fb(bunch of attention seeking malcontents in there))

    Why bother developing principles or expend any effort to be successful. When you can just play the victim and get everyone to feel sorry for ya. It's just the victimhood culture they teach kids nowadays.

    I personally think that kind of behavior is just the bottom of the barrel.

    This was a bad example especially when you want to argue the position of "false victimhood." So let me get this straight, there was a joke about a Caucasian and someone not of that demographic as you say a "pale Asian" gets offended because of some joke? Sounds weird you ought to expand on this scenario.

    When I think of “false victimhood” I think of things like this...
    Mike Pence's vulgar mistake about Christianity

    Or whites claiming “reverse racism”.
    While I won’t deny that occasionally a caucasian may be accosted by a person of another ethnicity simply for being white, the comparison is so minor and fleeting that I would not stoop to calling it ‘racism’.
    It would be akin to someone saying, “Yeah. You Jews had it bad in WWII, sort of like when some bullies beat up my cousin.” :eek::facepalm:

    As to the OP, it sounds more like someone just clamoring for attention. :rolleyes:

    Teenagers have a lot of growing up to do, and if teenage girls are involved you can expect a little bit of confusion. Girls go through a difficult period in which their brains get rewired or so I have read. If its teenage boys, well they also are going through some extremes that can distract them and interfere with rational choices. Were these teenagers?

    Speaking as a light skinned (not paleface) Asian, I am
    profoundly offended, victimized and upset profiled
    and persecuted because I am excluded from the
    WICSS on fb.

    Racism and discrimination are what they are,
    there is no "reverse".

    If any "white" wishes to determine if it is real,
    we can recommend areas of, say, Chicago
    or Newark where they can have a real life
    adventure.

    (loved the scene where Jackie Chan says
    "How are you doing, N...s?)

    Back in the 70s, it was common for companies & arms of government to
    prohibit hiring white males. U of Mich & Ford did this (firsthand experience).
    This varied with departments, & was of limited duration.
    When I got my first real job (engineer) at Northrop, I was the only
    white male new hire in my department. Perhaps I was a token, eh?

    Token Canadian?

    I certainly have not taken a job given me
    as a minority hire. I hope that my life
    would never degenerate to where I would.

    I never became a Canuckistanian.

    Chinkette?

    So a racist slander is cute huh? Where I come from racial slurs like that gets you “packed out” but luckily we have internet and anonymity. I’m not surprise Audrie thinks that is cute but I find you calling her a chink very racist and inappropriate.

    Just in case anyone was wondering

    Chink - Wikipedia

    “Chinkette” just means a female version of the slur.

    But as an over-represented minority, she'd be discriminated against at some major universities.

    Of course you do.
    Your deeply steeped in the culture of victimhood and entitlement.

    Does the fact that @Audie suggested it to me as appropriate change anything in your mind? Or are you just determined to be "offended" on her behalf?
