It is a meme because people *actually* believe things like this - http://culture.affinitymagazine.us/the-black-panth...
Imagine a Scot or Irish person saying that about romans or brits, you would be laughing at their absurdity and questioning what have they been drinking. As for 4chan lots of stuff comes from there and it is a forum for trolls. Here is a vid of /pol users that trolled shia's HWNDU project - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=szYP1BHtAn0

No I do not, I did not qualify for non merit based scholarships, I was never able to go to the white or european chamber of commerce for help (http://www.tucsonhispanicchamber.org/
), the vatos that jumped me on the southside did not give me a free pass because I was white. I was never allowed to use I am white as an excuse for anything. As for "success" I moved out of the ghetto into a rural area and learned to be happy being poor and live within my means vs keeping up with the joneses.

No, you create victimization instead of encouraging others to get over their pasts and be a better person. You say you want to dismantle this system but you do not want to get rid regulations and social programs. I want a system where people can be the next thomas sowell not the next marx.

I have continued and will continue to learn about the world everyday, your problem is you can not get out of your own perspective. Instead you would rather say crap that would make cecil rhodes say I told you so.

The "army brat" is not a derogatory term for the parents of the person it is said to but rather the character of the person it is said to. Your mother and father worked hard to provide for you so you would not face extreme poverty and they were successful in that. I give back to people that are in need and do not need to measure dicks about it, in fact I typically dog about people that complain about the people suffering through problems (ie people made it so bums can get a ticket for selling newspapers or begging at certain intersections which is retarded as you can just as easily drive past them).
