maybe we need to have a discussion on what racism is and when this belief system was actually established...

never in my life have i witnessed a White community (or even a single White for that matter) be a victim of racism due to a Black(s) suppressing them.. when did that ever become possible in America...?


please allow 2 pages before moving to R&R (assuming that forum still exists, idk)

    Most white people aren't offended by the so called racist terms towards us.

    The grouping of races; believing one is more superior than the rest. (supremacism)

    Its impossible. They just got tired of hearing black folks talk about it. Its suppose to diffuse your arguments when it is said.

    Its funny how white folks started this 🤬 but have the nerve to want us forget when its convient for them.

    This is the definition of "racism":

    Blacks are able to both have beliefs and to distinguish races; therefore, Blacks are able to be racist.

    To say that Blacks can't have beliefs or distinguish races would be racist and foolish.

    They mean bigot, but they do not know they mean bigot.


    Therefore, when they are fighting racism, they are fighting the wrong fight. Many people are fighting against prejudice which is a losing fight.

    maybe we need to have a discussion about what the word "racism" actually means. because this seems to be the problem.

    to be redundant:
    1: a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race
    2 : racial prejudice or discrimination
    being racist doesn't mean you have the means to act on it; and it doesn't mean you HAVE to have those means to be racist. but for some reason, white people in America's ability to translate their racism into oppressing people who aren't white makes it so that no one who's black can ever be racist. this is, to say the least, a convenient attitude.

    and hey, look how you're basically saying racism is a dynamic that exists only between white people and black people.

    The ever changing english language. Back in the day if you were a humanitarian, you were a rejector of christ's divinity.
    The Oxford English Dictionary defined “racialism” as “belief in the superiority of a particular race” and gives a 1907 quote as the first recorded use. The shortened term “racism” did not appear in the English language until the 1930s.[15][16] It was first defined by the OED as “[t]he theory that distinctive human characteristics and abilities are determined by race”, which gives 1936 as the first recorded use. Additionally, the OED records racism as a synonym of racialism: "belief in the superiority of a particular race". By the end of World War II, racism had acquired the same supremacist connotations former associated with racialism: racism now implied racial discrimination, racial supremacism and a harmful intent. (The term “race hatred” had also been used by sociologist Frederick Hertz in the late 1920s.)

    Modeled on the term “racism”, a large number of pejorative -ism terms have been created to describe various types of prejudice: sexism, ageism, ableism, speciesism, etc. Related concepts are antisemitism, chauvinism and homophobia (which in turn has led to terms such as Islamophobia).

    Just because White people are the majority, both in terms of numbers and power, does not mean other groups are incapable of racism. It just means whites are more likely to do more damaging things with their racism.

    That's irrelevant bruh.

    The English language is a White language, and racism--as defined--can exist in a myriad of communities whether or not Blacks, Whites, or Americans are present.

    Instead of making up your own definitions, just use the phrase "institutional racism".

    see, what always gets me is that people say this as if the term's giving white guys a pass somehow... which it does not do. the ability of ANYONE of ANY race to be racist doesn't prevent you from calling out a white guy for a) being racist and b) acting on that racism.
