    So racism is over? Cool guys, we can all say the N word now. Sweet.
    oh look how eager white boys are at using the n-word, go back to school first. Racism isn't over, it's just society is becoming smarter and leaving some people behind.

    Must be good to be male and not care about others.
    Ah that's how that works is it? Points you can't refute don't count because apparently I'm male (supposition) and 'I don't care about others (supposition).

    The huffington post is an indefensible sensationalist rag even a little bit of preliminary research can tell anyone that and your question was inane and pointless

    Because men aren't victims...
    Even those that are victims by the legal definition, as well as the normal one, of everything from assault to rape? Also funny how you accuse me of 'not caring about others' but write off a whole group prima facie because of what they are not who they are - but you're morally superior in this situation because you can't look past genitalia and physical characteristics which you use to purport a theory which you can't prove or even evidence in any substantive way.

    White men, yes.
    Ah I see. Much more reasonable. Just all white men always because you say so with no evidence. Why can't everyone be like you and care so much about others?

    But its an interesting discussion topic: should white men pay more?
    Actually, under this app Asian (as in East Asian) men pay the most.

      Does this mean that when Aliko Dangote ($12 billion net worth) and Donald Trump ($3 billion net worth) eat at a restaurant together Donald would have to pay more because he's a white man?

      Back in the old days, anti-racism was fundamentally based on the premise, "Judge someone by the content of their character, not the colour of their skin". Nowadays, self-claimed anti-racists appear to be saying, "Definitely judge people according to their skin colour and gender"

      The biggest victims of structural racism are Jewish people and Asians. The media goes after White males the most though.

      If you look on the apps website (http://equitableapp.com/about/), you can see its satire but was created to rob people who seriously think this is a good idea out of money.

      Definitely more rich white people that hate minorities than there should be.

      How do you figure that? Not saying it's not true, I'm interested to hear your take/theory on this

      A small number of particular media outlets, like Jezebel and HuffPo, might do but they really appeal to a certain demographic, just as Breitbart appeals to people who want to see Muslims, feminists and SJWs attacked. I don't think one can really say that there is some broad societal/governmental design to "go after" white males though

      Yes, AFAIK it was originally satirical, and they never intended to develop the app. Then they got a good response to their idea, so they decided to develop it after all.

      The university quotas in the USA making it harder for Jewish people to obtain places no longer exists for Jewish-Americans, but has since been applied to Asian-Americans. It's the definition of structural privilege, since it can actually be objectively measured and is enshrined in law.

      If you look at it in a very critical way, White males are attacked in a way, particularly in academia, which would not be accepted if White men had not already been defined as being in a position of privilege. If someone were to argue that Obama only won the American election in 2008/12 due to the ethnocentrism of African-Americans many of whom only voted for him because he's seen as the Black guy, you would raise a lot of eyebrows. Yet if you argue that Hillary only lost because of societal sexism whereby people are less likely to trust the most qualified woman over the least qualified man, people are ok with that. I don't personally take any issue with benevolent African-American ethnocentrism, it's not hateful, but I will criticise leftists, most of whom are themselves White, for their attacks on White men which are genuinely mean spirited.

      Ah that's sweet, no sensible answer to the fact you're a bigot so just ignore everything that has been said and hide behind a silly buzzword you can't even justify the use of.

      What can one answer to someone who admits he cannot see past his privilege accusing others of making up discrimination?

      Its not a buzzword, its a well-documented societal issue.
