Unlike you, the Royal and Ancient has moved with the times, late admittedly but women are no longer excluded.

By the way it's Edinburgh 🤓

That great concept totally disregarded by many muslims living in Europe under the watchful eye of the fearless civil rights warriors?
Must be another type of equality.

And that is the answer to most of the problems with young black males in the UK.

Do you have evidence to back up that claim Phil?

Can men join the Women's Institute?

Is there a White Police Officers' Association?

Does the BBC have a White History Week?

All this equality/discrimination thing seems to be a bit of a one-way road!

Shhhh, those whose lives are governed by a personal mission statement that demands they be offended on behalf of all others at all times might well be offended by that notion

Apparently, you and your fellow traveler's don't believe in "freedom of association" of consenting adults. But that consenting adult require government officials to tell them how and who to associate with--how fascist of you.

Again, the Left believes in freedom as they dictate it.

I've read both the Iliad and the Odyssey and I can't remember any of it where Homer said "...doooh !".

Yale dean applauds diversity, except for ‘white trash’ locals



A college dean at Yale has been suspended for suggesting that some locals in the city of New Haven were “white trash” and “low class folks” and for referring to staff at a nearby cinema as “barely educated morons trying to manage snack orders for the obese”.

June Chu, a graduate of Harvard with a doctorate in social psychology, was named dean of one of Yale’s 12 colleges last summer, to supervise students’ academic and personal development. She had written about this role in an article for the Inside Higher Ed website, warning that those in academia should try to avoid being “ethnocentric”, or committing “microaggressions” in their dealings with students, always seeking to appreciate “their distinct value systems”.

However, the dean of Pierson College was writing with less restraint about local dining spots and cinemas on the review site Yelp.

A student at Pierson told the Yale Daily News that he first became aware of these reviews after the dean sent a mass email to all members of the college, announcing that she had been made a member of the “Yelp elite”, for her frequent posts on the site. One of these, assessing a Japanese restaurant, began: “To put it quite simply: if you are white trash, this is the perfect night out for you!” It was “not authentic by any stretch of any imagination and perfect for those low class folks who believe this is a real night out”.

Dr Chu apologised for the reviews. Stephen Davis, head of Pierson College, said he had hoped “to carve out a space for grace” but had since seen “multiple reprehensible posts, enough to represent a more widespread pattern”.

That was back in the day when a President could be a Texan and a Democrat at the same time. Johnson pushed the Civil Rights Act and other legislation through Congress while at the same time referring to them as "ni66er bills" in private.

When it comes to the question of "white privilege", I think some "social justice warriors" don't understand the difference between statistical data and individual cases. Just because whites appear to have some advantages as a population after you crunch the numbers, it does not mean that any random white person you meet enjoys an advantage.
