    You keep sticking up for aggrieved whites, Mr. Oliver, while largely ignoring the antics of white racists. Somebody has to tackle the dirty jobs, and you seem the man for this job.

    Brickbats are colorblind.

    Mine are red.

  • Inigo Montoya||

    Brickbats are about injustice or government excesses (but I repeat myself). Oliver exposes them wherever he finds them, regardless of race.

    Yeah man, it is not MY fault if I was born color-deprived!!! Not my choice, so WHY am I being blamed?!?!?

    To be fair, who wants to hire an employee that they know is going to be calling in dead at least a couple of times a week?

  • Tom Bombadil||

    South Africa reminds me of Bitcoin:

    The sooner you can get out, the better.

  • Will Nonya||

    Don't you know that the only way to fight racism is with more racism?

  • Mickey Rat||

    Now comes the revenge phase.

  • Kivlor||

    This is what happens when you allow mass immigration from backwards savages. Study closely Americans. you're next

    Whitey got his privilege checked. Apparently the problem whiteness is needing a job.

    It's just basic affirmative action. What is the problem?
