    I think youre confusing institutionalised racism with meritocracy.
    You claimed racism is an institution, so institutionalised racism must be an institutionalised institution, surely? Isn't that a tautology?

    So when Egyptians where in power were black people oppressed?
    There is no difference in opportunity if there was then that would be illegal as the big oppressive white people have passed laws to stop it.

    Maybe the reason the electorate is mostly white is because the country is mostly white?
    What is the alternative a government run by the minority of people.
    You can't just say it exists then say I'm not going to go into it as a argument.
    POC are secretly pulling the strings behind the picture but I'm not even going to go into it you just have to accept that as fact
    LOL ok but people of colour are still being discriminated against? Nope but the government should be representative of the population - which it isnt. But I don't quite think thats because POC don't put themselves forward but I guess thats what you think? Why is it that the POC that are in Parliament made to feel like they don't belong i.e. in the case of a black MP being told 'cleaners cant use the lift'
    I'll be honest, the fact that you don't believe racism is an institution and if you genuinely believe that POC have equal opportunity and are treated the same as white people then you are part of the problem.

    Personally I think people with a victim complex like you are the problem if you tell someone over and over they can't do something chances are they won't do it, so maybe instead of saying oh they can't do this and that you should start encouraging them to actually get up and do it.

    Haha cute. Im the one with a victim complex ok..? Whilst claiming that white people can be victims of racism. Not saying they can't. I'm saying the system will not allow them to.

    That basically says I'm not saying they can't but they can't.

    There is a difference between me saying white people can be victims of racism and you saying all POC are victims of racism so shouldn't bother trying as they wont succeed.

    Comparing the working class to POC is actually quite pathetic seeing the working class struggles can be overcome. Institutionalised racism? Not so easy.

    What about them..?

    If opportunities are being denied to POC are they wrong wrong for creating their own?

    Ok but POC are discriminated against on a disproportionate scale but yet racism is experienced by white people by a system established by white people? Boo hoo

    Racism will clearly never be vanished but if you want to talk about it like that then it will vanish when POC are given equal opportunity and are not victims of institutionalised racism 😊
    If POC are creating their own opportunities why is it wrong for others to create their own?

    They wouldn't need to create opportunities of their own if they were given out fairly and not based on colour..

    That same argument could be used in reverse.

    I understand that race relations are getting worse now that people like you are complaining about how POC are not getting jobs rather than encouraging them to get qualifications so they can get the job

    I was subjected to racism as a white person. Insults such as white *****. This happened at work for an international company. Not a thing was done or said about it.

    Can't argue with ignorance.. Like I said you should read up more on institutionalised racism and race relations😊

    Again, have a good weekend 💋💋
    Have race relations gotten better or worse over the past few years?

    You are ignorant of this fact and are directly responsible for why they are getting worse

    This is only have decades of fighting for the ability to do so, just as PoC have over the years. It is only relatively recently that someone of low birth could amount to anything, and this bias still stays with us today. It is completely comparable to racism.

    When white minority groups are denied opportunities, are they not entitled to some kind of protection or acknowledgment?

    (Original post by fairy_a)

    Yes, because it is denying another person an opportunity based entirely on their race.

    Just because some, or even most white people benefit from other white people being in power, does not mean you can make light of times when they don't. I could just as easily and ignorantly tell you to cry me a river about the issues you are talking about.

    And how would you envision such a world? Equal rights for all races? Racial proportions in companies that reflect the national average?

    Sorry but even till today you whites are actively oppressing and killing people of colour so in you own words, whites are "scum of the earth" if only they were killed off like they did to other civilisations, why don't you collect the facts and see what the western world are doing to the vulnerable before you come and quote me because frankly your argument is very weak to say the least
    No we're not. Why don't YOU go and look at the facts?
