"Young, white men are the most derided group in Britain, according to a YouGov study.
People were asked for their views on different groups of differing ages, genders and ethnicities.
They were asked to score them on specific positive and negative criteria.
These included how likely they are to be honest, to be intelligent, to work hard, too be police, to help others, to be violent, to travel without buying a ticket, to take drugs, to have many sexual encounters, and to get drunk."

Old white women came out on top.
So what do you think; if you're a young, white male can you feel the hatred from society getting you down, or are you chortling your way through your privileged existence?

Discuss.

This study is so full of it. The 'negative' attributes primarily associated with young white males were drinking, drug use and frequent sex, which many people don't even see as negatives. Far better than being seen as violent, dishonest or unwilling to help others, anyway.

Having a look at this study, some of the categories are much more serious than others. Consider the view that someone has 'many sexual partners' vs 'be violent' or 'be honest'. Young white men seem to be poorly rated in the less significant things, but come out around average for more serious things. Such as:

Most unlikely to be honest:
Pakistani man his 20s

Most unlikely to help others:
Pakistani man his 20s

Most likely to travel without buying a ticket:
Black Caribbean man in his 20s
Pakistani man in his 20s
White man in his 20s

Least intelligent:
Muslim women in her 60s
Polish woman in her 60s
Pakistani woman her 60s
(Mostly women from ethnic minorities dominate this category)

Finally, the most telling, be violent:
Black Caribbean in his 20s
Pakistani man in his 20s
Polish man in his 20s
Polish man in his 40s
Muslim man in his 20s
Muslim man in his 40s
Pakistani man in his 40s
Black Caribbean woman in her 20s
White man in his 20s

The first thing is that the Telegraph have interpreted these stats generally, rather than looking at the finer details. The real issues is the ethnic and age bias people have.

If a white guy is down and out he is a waster/a chav/an alcy or some sort of nutter. If an ethnic is in such a position the system is wrong.

This suprises me not one iota. I've lived it. I'm the oldest of the young(millennials) and I've seen what the ar on me from the opposite sex and primarily the generation above is like. That women of baby boomer/Thatcher generation are most worshipped doesn't surprise. One thing though which is often overlooked unfairly is the class dimension, yes white young guys don't have it good, but class is bad for both sexes but worse for younger people I'd argue-Balir didn't get rid of class, snobbery is as entrenched as ever.

I find some of those stastics to be rather a turn on for some odd reason.........

The study doesnt reveal anything new at all.

All you learn from the study is that society is racist, prejudiced and stereotypes guide people's thinking on other races. We knew all of that already.

When I see white homeless people I like to tell them they should sell their skin if they really need money.
