Even if you accept the argument that most affirmative action programs are inherently racist against white men, we still structurally discriminate against aboriginal cultures by law, and worse, by treaty.
Do you really think the reservation system (with all its limitations) benefits the people ultimately forced to live there or descended from the people who live there while it limits white men? Really?
But even with such a glaringly obvious exception, you’d be hard pressed to demonstrate that the actual effect of trying to help other demographics has been to degrade the lives of white men below the lives of others.
Being white is still where the money is. For every Oprah, how many thousands of Trumps?
I recognize that the gender issue is vastly more complex than race, but again, for every Blakely, how many Buffets?
