    This isn't the loony left, some people are just lost in a world of their own, believing that they are protected from being called 'racist' or 'insensitive'. Black people can be racist, just like women can be sexist or LGBT people can be heterophobic. Just because it's not the way round it usually is, doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

    She really is correct, we should not be judging people on what they look like. we should be looking at what they do and how they live

    I have a problem with someone saying oh black people are stupid. it is a stupid thing to say
    but saying that there are stupid black people is a true statement, as is there are stupid white people, stupid American people, stupid people exist in every culture and everywhere.
    replace the word stupid with something else such as smart, racist,funny,fast, small, tall fits in with it to.

    don't judge people on what they are judge them on how they behave and treat others. and don't hide behind a minority or a race to say that you cannot be racist because you are black as that is racist in itself

    Look anyone can be racist. I don't know where this idea you have to be "in power" to be racist came from.

    When university students desire a "safe space" where they are protected from provocative ideas, they demonstrate their lack of understanding for what the real purpose of higher learning is.

    They use the argument that if you're a minority group in a country then you are a victim and not capable of racism because being a minority means you have no power.

    Gee that explains why Obama is in power then.

    Here is a good example I can think of.

    Remember Freddie Gray's death? It turned out half the officers involved in Freddie Gray's death were Black and the power structure around that area was Black. Black chief of police, Black mayor...

    The social justice warrior, along with an angry Black mob want you to believe his death was caused by the racist White establishment when it wasn't.

    Where does that actually come from though? I've seen no recognised definer have it so.

    Lol.

    They all turned into fascists when somebody gives a fair opinion which is true: This is the fascist way of the Left.

    They probably called her a sellout too.

    Minorities don't too well at quashing stereotypes from their own bigots at all. They support or sympathize with them - or say nothing at all.

    These people are more than happy to discriminate against White people through peaceful, institutional means.

    The most ironic thing about the "only white people can be racist" line is that white people are pretty much the only people on earth who dont dislike Africans, and are willing to treat them as equals. Go to India, China, Japan, Pakistan, the UAE, etc as a black person and see what reception you get. Hell, even within the UK, the amount of anti-black vitriol that you regularly hear from Asians is far greater than you would ever hear from white people.

    The general rule is that the more you are willing to do to accept others, the more likely you are to be called racist/sexist/whatever. People can smell weakness. Noone complains about Japanese or Chinese racism, because those countries are fairly honest that they simply dont want ethnic minorities there, and they dont even bother trying to hide it. Meanwhile countries like the UK that have treated blacks better than almost any other country in history, get regularly accused of systematic racism.
