    As far as I'm concerned, you can be racist to anyone!

    Everyone has a race, if you can offend or discriminate, you can be racist to them.

    I was in a debate in an A level history class, and a student claimed that you could not be racist to a white person because white people have not experienced systemic opression.

    The irony being, she was a black muslim! You would think that she would be the first person for racial equality!

    I have seen a few threads on TSR where people think that! It's completely insane!

    Of course you can be racist towards white people! The terms "white boy/girl" and "gringo" are common examples of this. They're actually as rude as the n-word is, however due to double standards no one blinks an eye whenever these words are said - simply because we're white.

    Institutionally, no? So hiring blacks over whites, simply to fill a quota isn't racist?

    That's exactly the reason why people don't think you can be racist towards a white person.

    I'm sorry, I don't see how that isn't racism. See if I said you were brown or black, people would call me out for being racist

    Well that in itself is patently false. Tell them to go study a bit of European history, starting with the 1000 year Arab/North African trade in European slaves.
