All you “free homes” people complaining might try actually learning about Utah’s programs. They give homeless people an apartment and a social worker to help them get back on their feet, usually through a combination of medical treatment, social services, and vocational rehabilitation. It’s been a very successful program model and it saves Utah millions of dollars over the traditional means of homeless assistance or the “ignore the homeless” approach available in most places. These people get a free home but get put on a track where they can pay for that home in a year or so, and it’s working like a charm for all involved. Before you bitch about it, learn about it - and if you can’t come up with a better solution than this money and life saving approach, then do us all a favor and STFU.
Whenever people say “Reverse racism isn’t real” I think they need to just shut the fuck up because they sound so douchey and pretentious.
Reverse racism isn’t about the majority getting oppressed. Reverse racism is that minorities are now expected to great free passes just because they’re a minority. Now the majority is just expected to abdicate whatever position they hold and move over for a minority. You don’t get a pass for the color of your skin—isn’t that was the anti-racist movement is trying to prevent?
Seriously. Shit like affirmative action is so stupid. If somebody is more qualified than somebody else, they should get the job. But if they’re white and get the job, apparently it’s racist!
Just shut up. My god. And I’m saying all of this as a minority.
