People love to self segregate, that way they stay in their comfort zones. Plus, it give them numerical power to determine other self segregating groups as racist.

Thanks. I wonder how long it will take for them to lock this thread. It took them less than a day to lock the last one.

Better yet: I wonder how long it will take for "them" to ban you. It didn't take them long to ban the last one.

Is anyone else bashing other race oriented threads, or are they just coming here and being hypocritical?

I agree...what in the world. although the title is a little sketchy...why is it that ppl just joan on white ppl and love to criticize them?? there are the most ridiculous threads...eg..."where are persians...where are african americans...where are hispanics...where are vietnamese..." but heaven forbid there is one about white ppl. People in America need to grow up and open their eyes. There are MUCH bigger problems out there than racial problems...eg. Cancer, Aids...

Most of the real ".........Where you going" threads are started because there are so few minorities in dental school. There are some dental schools out there that don't have any Afro-Americans in them at all. This is the only place were most can meet up and discus this and other situation that are unique to minorities.

So true. I have seen so many of these threads and no one seems to mind and as soon as there is one about whites all the arrows come out. It's like there is all this angst against white people and these people are just waiting to pounce on it. Pretty sad really. Small mans syndrome, I assume...

If I'm a heterosexual Caucasian male from the United States attending dental school, chances are I'm going to have a pretty good chance of finding people like myself that I can identify with, hang out with, and share every part of me including my sexuality, race, and culture.
If I'm a heterosexual African-American male, there is less of a chance that I will have someone that I can identify with as an African-American. It is not the totality of my experience as a dental student nor will be as a dentist, but there are just some issues that my classmates of other racial backgrounds cannot identify with as well as another African-American.
If I'm a homosexual Middle-Eastern female from Nigeria, I might have a more difficult time adjusting and finding someone who can relate to me at all.

Think of the reverse situation.. would you necessarily feel perfectly fine attending a school where most of the students were homosexual Middle-Eastern females from Nigeria? I know that I'd be intimidated, and would probably be excluded from a lot of conversations and activities. Wouldn't knowing at least someone like myself in my class or profession make the transition a little bit easier?

These are extreme cases, and of course no one is going to necessarily base their decision of where or if to go to dental school on these thoughts. I think the original idea behind these threads is not necessarily to exclude others or toot their own horn, but more for the momentary "There are others like me" thought.

I don't know, I hope this makes sense. I don't really see anything inflammatory about this thread, but understand where the other threads may be coming from.

Maybe, it's becasue this thread was made for the purpose of inciting people.

i just find it funny and a little interesting how you had a huge problem with the other threads about different ethnicities but still succumbed to creating your own...and you're saying others are hypocrites.... even with yours posted... i have no problem whatsoever with it..

It just seems you're doing it out of making a point to others about their race-related threads but not really in the interest of speaking/ getting to know those of your own ethnicity to get a feel for how many pre-dents there are. Then wonder why threads are being closed.

I also love how the word 'racist' is being thrown around without proper discrimanatory action happenning
interesting, but go on.....

There are going to be some intelligent people going to dental school after all. I thought surly that I had made a mistake in going to dschool.

The pupose of this thread is to see if the mods finally removed their heads from their a$$es and realized that this thread is not any different from the others posted about race. I dont know why everyone thinks that it is ridiculous, when obviously there is a double standard against whites.

The purpose of the original thread that I started about white people was to show, albietly ironic, that the other race threads are ridiculous. The mods shut it down in less than a day saying that there was no dental relatedness to the postings while every other race thread was just as non dental related.

PS I am hispanic for all of those that are confused. For some strange reason, I couldnt see the invisible cat......weird.

You only see things from the surface. Think a little bit deeper about different social issues. You're not a bad person, you just lack information.

gosh...you're so boring! :sleep::sleep::sleep:

according to paris hilton (who i happen to heart forever), there is no bigger sin than being boring.

I'm sure she wasn't including major sins... like murder, theft, etc. but yeah... no being boring! hahaha.

While I personally don't mind race threads, I agree with you about the "double standard" issue. However, if you do a search on "white race" threads, the majority of them have been sarcastic in nature. I don't think the mods would shut down a "white race" thread if it were of a more serious tone. For instance, take the following past threads regarding "white race":


Thread:
http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=290277&highlight=white

Resulted in:
"Closing this thread - not because it deals with the topic of whites and scholarships, but the disrespectful nature in which the topic is posed merits such action. The same goes for any thread, regardless of any racial or political themes or undertones."


Thread:
http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=289135&highlight=white

Resulted in:
"Closing. This thread has become anything but useful to predents."


Thread:
http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=352486&highlight=white

Resulted in:
"Nothing of value in this thread. Closing."


Notice a trend here? All of these trends were not serious, and therefore, resulted in their closing. Now take a thread dealing with "Italian race":


Thread:
http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=287741&highlight=white

Resulted in:
still open


While the majority of Italians are white, this thread remains open to this day due to its serious tone.

African American opening post:
yes i got jealous of the other race specific threads.
just wanted to see how many of us there were, what schools your applying to, and where are you guys located!

I dont see how the opening posts of these race specific threads differs from the one that I started last time. Maybe it was the predents not taking it seriously, oh wait, that was exactly what it was. Being white does not allow you to identify with other white people because somehow that might become misconstrued as being racist.
(I guess I should just be quiet and take my seat in the back of the bus because if your white then that means people cant be racist against you.) the part in parenthesis is sarcastic
