Wow, is this a trick question? Seems like you already know. Yes, there were white slaves too... in America... during the colonial period... in fact, more white than black slaves... and more white slaves died in transport on the way over here. Admittedly, it's probably partially cause more white slaves were children at the time of capture, but likely the high death rate also related to the fact that they were less valuable. A white slave sold for less cause he was more difficult to recapture if he ran away, cause he blended into the crowd. He had to be taught a skill in his infancy (since he often was one), or he was an adult criminal (vagrancy). Plus, you had to lie to him to keep him enslaved, promising to eventually deliver land to him when you never intend to (the racket of indentured servitude). Charles Dickens wrote Oliver Twist, a story about an orphan in a workhouse who narrowly escapes becoming a chimney sweep (which deformed or killed 4-year-old boys, yet they still had to beg in the streets for food). If Scrooge's question "Are there no workhouses?" has you wondering what a workhouse is, read: "They Were White and They Were Slaves: The Untold History of the Enslavement of Whites in Early America" by Michael A. Hoffman II, "White Cargo: The Forgotten History of Britain's White Slaves in America" by Don Jordan and Michael Walsh, and "The White Slave: Another Picture of Slave Life in America" by Richard Hildreth. Also, here are some interesting links:

So yeah, there were white slaves too, in colonial America, alongside black slaves. Over time, despite the fact that they were more expensive, the shift turned in favor of black slaves over white because at least you could more easily keep your purchase, since he didn't look like everyone else, and because he didn't speak your language at capture, you didn't have to keep duping him and risking his rebellions each time. White slaves murdered more of their masters, typically right after their slavery was extended beyond that promised point of freedom... AGAIN.

Something is wrong, but it's not us making a big deal about a black president. Ever since white people were blamed by the media for being born, they've been aching for something to celebrate as "proof" they aren't racist. How about the fact that other races from all over the world travel to America so they can live amongst and bitch about the white man. How about the fact that the white man is the only country majority that plays thought police and mutes himself, suppressing history to hide the fact that most colonist slaves were white and that Africans owned white slaves before the trade even traveled to America (Hoffman), or the fact that if one white man tries to defend himself, other white men shut him up, calling it "hate speech" and removing his freedom of expression. Some white men even call it hate speech to quote crime statistics, at which last count black men killed whites at a rate of 22 times the rate whites killed blacks (FBI's October Uniform Crime Reports of 1993, cited pg. 294 of "Why Race Matters" by Michael Levin). Through government programs and scholarships, there's already an annual white to black transfer of wealth in the billions, yet whites quake when blacks speak of reparations for an institution of slavery that whites suffered as well, and evidence indicates more (both books). The reason whites are so focused on race is cause our focus is forced there by "guilt" propaganda. We'd love to ignore it and pretend it doesn't matter. Will blacks ever allow that? Anyway, if you are white, should you ever decide to learn about your heritage (the slavery and suffering part), Charles Dickens wrote Oliver Twist, a story about an orphan in a workhouse who narrowly escapes becoming a chimney sweep (which deformed or killed 4-year-old boys, yet they still had to beg in the streets for food).

And yes, you are right that the above article is biased. Most articles are biased against whites anymore. I've learned to live with it.

Well, I see a lot of white people in the film industry, but they're mostly Jewish. I'd agree that Asians are underrepresented in entertainment. I don't think it's okay (oh, I'm sorry, you asked "right") to dislike white people because they are the only majority population of a country that has ever bent over backwards so much for minorities. Other races from all over the world travel to America so they can live amongst and bitch about the white man. The white man plays thought police and mutes himself, suppressing history to hide the fact that most colonist slaves were white and that Africans owned white slaves before the trade even traveled to America (Hoffman). If one white man tries to defend himself, other white men shut him up, calling it "hate speech" and removing his feedom of expression. Some white men even call it hate speech to quote crime statistics, at which last count black men killed whites at a rate of 22 times the rate whites killed blacks (FBI's October Uniform Crime Reports of 1993, cited pg. 294 of "Why Race Matters" by Michael Levin). Through government programs and scholarships, there's already an annual white to black transfer of wealth in the billions, yet whites quake when blacks speak of reparations for an institution of slavery that whites suffered as well, and evidence indicates more (both). You dislike white people cause you perpetually think they owe you more, and I dislike them for refusing to learn their own heritage, including their own sufferings.

Also, your white school sounds like no public school I've ever heard of. If you are comparing public and private school, rest assured most whites attend public. My high school certainly wasn't as privileged as yours! If this is a public school, first of all - where? and second, that's such a major violation of the constitution that you've got a multi-million dollar lawsuit on your hands. Write to John Quinones at MSNBC and report it. He'll be at your doorstep in a heartbeat, so I expect to see your situation on TV soon.
