Why young white men are so lost

Who’d have thunk it? Apparently, young white men are the most derided group in the UK. You know, that section of society that is constantly smeared as lager-swilling chavs and would-be girlfriend abusers has, according to a YouGov poll for Prospect, been ranked by members of the public as the worst ethnic and gender group on a list of negative traits – particularly drunkenness, work-shyness, rudeness and promiscuity.

I know we’re not supposed to trust pollsters any more, but the reaction to the Prospect poll suggested it was on to something. There was a sense of genuine surprise. A poll no doubt designed to generate another shock-horror headline about Britain’s bigoted white masses showed the opposite to be true.

    It seems that haven’t heard of ‘white male privilege’ much less cashed in on it.

    The PTB’s will rue the day they allowed this to happen.

    The middle class have fixed it that the white working class will be at the bottom of the pile. Talent and skill has little effect on the outcome if the system refuses to let them climb up. The midfle class have destroyed their communities and job opportunities. Their education is shit. Their social skills slowly destroyed. Yet people blame them for the resulting failure but import islam into a once proud country to continue the wirking class destruction.

      No so sure the blame lies with the middle class. It certainly lies with the cultural marxists.

        Point taken. But the class structure intefer to is a structure which comes out of the dynamic between the educated civil servant / professional class and the blue collar workers. The educated govt/prof class controlled education, housing, health to their benefit.
        These people are still there and some may be marxist but the division is still there. The working class are deprived opportunities offered to the educated groups and here i do not mean the recent grads. If one can remember in the uk only about 18% of the population went to uni. These sre the ones who had the power. And to some extent it is still these people who control policy affecting the poor. I am guessing to some extent from my expetience in the uk at various levels I come across.
        I dont see much change for the working class except some of the many that should never have gone to university go study gender and such nonsense courses will be slipping back down the ladder

    Forget blaming one political side or another. Young white men have no religion, few family ties and get to live in a society that devalues everything manly. Truth be told, young males of other races are little better off. Older men need only think back to what gave them pride as young men and children. How many of those things are now frowned upon?
