The statement was about equality in opportunity. Quit changing the rules. And quit trying to be insulting and condescending. That's not the way to win friends.
Except, the opportunity exists for you to choose either of those three examples as career paths. You just wouldn't have been a top-flight candidate for either given the limitations you mentioned. That doesn't mean you didn't have the opportunity to pursue those paths based on the statements you provided. What I was referencing earlier on was equality being absent due to prejudice. As I have already said, prejudice wasn't a factor in either of the examples you mentioned.

So, if I go apply to be a jockey, and they say I can't based on my size, that's not prejudiced?

You know, this obsession you have with insisting I'm wrong is getting a little old, don't you think?
Or are you just trying to go for low hanging fruit because you know this whole "oppression and the man is keeping me down" lie is pretty worn?

No, it is not prejudice. Prejudice is unjustified. Considering most race horses carry up to about 115-125 pounds, the belief that you wouldn't make a good jockey is justifiable because it defies the laws of physics. Just like there are good reasons there are vision requirements for pilots. That isn't prejudice. That's protecting individuals and the public. Do you want blind people or individuals with horrendous eyesight flying commercial planes? No.

It isn't an obsession. You keep saying things that simply aren't true. Repeating the examples you want over and over doesn't change the facts of the situation.

There are tons of examples where people were denied opportunity with prejudice which would signal a lack of equality that I was referencing. As stated prior, your examples don't have any form of prejudice at all.

I think it is quite obvious that the way things are going right now (at least from an economic perspective in the United States) isn't sustainable. Significant changes are eventually going to have to be made. What will those changes be? Who knows.
Actually I think this was the goal from the start.

WHO said initially Don't Worry, Be Happy. No big deal right? Then boom. Economy's are collapsing. People dying by the thousands. Trump gets a bashing for shutting down incoming traffic from many countries. Then we get pushed into the shutdown. Millions suddenly out of work with no way to pay bills or feed their families. A fair amount of businesses closed their doors for good. The stimulus money didn't make it to a lot of people and it sure didn't make up for 2 months of lost income. Yeah some got unemployment benefits but not nearly everyone. These same people complained about feeding families and paying bills. They were told to shut up and stay home. Dying from starvation is better than dying of the virus. We were warned that suicides and drug overdoses would kill many more than the virus but the media is silent in that area.

Oh yeah, and there is talk of another major shutdown this fall. Go figure.

Not long afterwards the George Floyd thing became a 3 continent event. 3 continents, really??? BLM went from a minor player to global overnight. They have enough money that they are donating millions to dems. This was probably just good management on their part, right?

I do know palates of bricks, more guns than Antifa had ever even thought about and molotov cocktails appear everywhere suddenly. They must have just appeared out of nowhere from organizations that had little to no funding. Must be a coincidence, right?

Then, while we were looking the other way, TPTB are holding meetings deciding our fate. They have decided that the UN can run the affairs of businesses and people better than anyone else. Governing officials are masters of prudence and efficiency, aren't they?

The path this country was on was unsustainable before the COVID-19 pandemic. Everything is now subsequently worse. It is quite the reckoning. A lot of things are going to have to change. The overall response in the United States to the pandemic has been pretty poor. You illustrate that quite clearly with some of the areas you have already outlined.

So y'all have picked out a new national anthem. I'm just curious as to what flag you'll fly?

I don't know what planet you have been living on, but the path of this country was like a rocket to the moon before this COVID-19 hit. Record numbers in nearly every area which could be quantified. Your statement "The path this country was on was unsustainable before the COVID-19 pandemic" is an empty prophesy - not a fact by any means whatsoever - which can neither be proved or disproved. The opportunity to test it was lost to said pandemic. The dems/socialists get down on their knees daily thanking whatever abysmal slugbucket they pray to for it. And of course exaggerate, enhance, and fear-monger it for every drop of economic collapse they can wring out of it.

They were stupid examples.

(A) You can wear glasses and become a pilot.

(B) Being too tall or heavy to be a successful jockey isn't being denied equal opportunity through prejudice.

(C) Plenty of people have careers in the adult film industry and aren't packing a foot long.

I understood what you wrote. I'm just smart enough to realize it was a piss poor rebuttal to what I had stated.

And don't worry about the property, you couldn't afford it anyways.
Oh, we have a social justice warrior in our midst.

I'll bet you buy into "it's a back thing, you wouldn't understand" and the "You're white so you have privilege and you don't even know it" crap.
Black5 is a soldier. He wanted to fly for the Army, as I did. I also couldn't fly for the Army because I wore glasses. You don't have a clue about him or me.

BTW, every promotion point I got, I earned. I didn't get extra promotion points for being white or for being male. Others can't say that. So much for White Privilege, huh?

A couple of decades ago, I was literally pinned against an Alabama State Trooper's car until I agreed to apply to be a Ala-damned-Bama State Trooper. They were having a big push for troopers that year. They were really trying for Black Troopers so they canvassed the state for any minority who was willing to be a Trooper. The state made a point to make the testing procedure as blind as possible. Hell, the NAACP even declared that Alabama was leading the way in "equality." Guess what. Most of the "minorities" didn't even score a 70% on the test. The batch was thrown out and I didn't bother to apply, again. It was apparent that quality wasn't the goal.

Who holds who down? Me? I've never held anyone down. I'vbe also never asked for preferential treatment and I've never been given any. I've seen others be given it; people who didn't deserve it but they had the right skin tone.

There is no systemic racism in this country accept for the government-forced racism that dictates that I am to be second-class because I am white. Still, I am doing OK because I am willing to do what it takes to survive and I don't expect any help for the government.

I'd love to tell you about a friend of my second wife who got SIX waivers to fly for the Army, but I don't feel like typing that much. Suffice it to say that she wouldn't be flying if she were a white male.

Funny, how all decks are stacked for some people yet they just can't, as a whole, grab the gold ring and have to claim racism.

Oh, I have to ask. Have you sacrificed anything for the cause? Did you lose a career, or are you just a mindless, social justice warrior? I know. This is the internet. You can claim anything. Still, be honest.
