If you dont believe me then go toe to toe with anybody but another hetro white guy in a crowd and then tell me which side most of the crowd ends up on.
Just look around. Fox news is dominated by white guys. But at liberal MSNBC ... oh wait, white guys. But certainly the main stream media ... oh wait, white guys there to. How about the NY times editorial page? Mostly white guys. The large majority of opinion makers in this country are white guys. I don't see how you see otherwise when the evidence is all around.
Wow, you have really been showing of late that I have overvalued your ability to perceive the truth. Here you are talking like an old white guy who is unaware of what is going on in the rest of society. If you listen to the younger Americans, and pay attention to who they are listening to, you would be aware as I am of the increasing tendency to devalue what white guys are saying. There is a whole vast population that does not pay attention to major media, where while it is slipping the white guys are still overpopulated....these younger people are online watching webcasts/viewing blogs/heading to amateur journalism sites , and this MTV generation expects to hear from a wide variation of types. I you want to reach out to the young people, the part of our population that is most ready and willing to force change, you dont try to communicate with them with a white guy for a mouth piece and put him on MSNBC. You get somebody else and put them online.
What we are looking at is the inevitable next step to the university systematically ignoring dead white guys as they seek out other historical individuals to pay attention to. It is the playing to the expectations created by two decades of programs to make sure that each group of people has the right number of women/blacks/gays/blah blah blah. Any media with too many white guys is suspect to the young, it is jarring to their sensibilities, and they will tend to tune out. If you are a white guy and want to get heard you might seriously consider improving your position by pretending to be somebody else, say a lesbian.
