There is a trend running through our culture. It is this idea that white people are privileged and are always given preference over non-whites. In some cases, we could interpret the situation that way. But, in most of the examples given, it might have more to do with the ability or skill.
It is hard to believe, but not every case of a white achieving is the direct result of racism. It is statistically impossible that every white businessman is less qualified than the black businessman that he beat out.
This is clearly race baiting. But, even the far left liberal nuts are not immune to this false accusation.

Paramount created a viral advertising campaign to get fans to create their own memes in order to promote the new movie Ghost in the Shell, a sci-fi crime blockbuster based on the Japanese manga of the same name, which opens on March 31.
The campaign generated an enthusiastic response, but predominantly from social justice warriors reiterating their claim that producers had “whitewashed” the movie by casting Scarlett Johansson in the role of the ‘Major’—a cyborg policewoman hunting a computer hacker—which they argue should be played by an Asian actor.
To coincide with a new video promo, in which Johansson said: “I am the hunted. I am the hunter. I am coming for them. I am Major”, Paramount invited the film’s Twitter followers to “Tell the world who you are”
Though this has become somewhat of an epidemic, there might be something to this accusation. Why would they not have chosen a Japanese actress? Did they even ask oriental actresses read for the part? If so, how did they do?
It might be that Johansson was better than those who read for the part. Or, could it be that this leftwing nut is given favor because she draws a better crowd.
At any rate, this is not the publicity that the publicist was looking to create. Even if they might would claim that it was their prerogative to hire who they wished, they have created and perpetuated this madness, so let them lie in it.
