    One of he first stages of genocide is dehumanization. Whites are dehumanized and this is proof.

    What is it people believe Whites should feel guilty of, that other people are not? this it... they teach you to self criticize our history, but not others. You can bring up slavery of Black people but so many other people involved from Jews, Arabs... that largely goes ignored.

    Whites themselves were captured and made slaves, and women often made sex slaves. It may not have been in huge numbers compared to some others but it was still a sizable amount.

    We are all grouped as White and therefore we are bought up being told we are guilty. We've done nothing! you have made it a crime to be born a White person.

    Also I'd like to remind people that Whites like other races are made up of many different ethnic groups with our own history. I'm Polish and don't see what is it I should feel guilty about?


    If you are saying Whites cannot not victims of racism, then that of course that means that in the extreme cases genocide against us is permissible.


    That many Whites and other races are being taught that you can't be victims of racism is frightening and it often comes from the Left.
    There is nothing remotely close to White genocide today. Funny that your name is "LiberalTears" when that post of yours is full of tears and self-induced victimhood. Maybe it will console you to look at the way that white skin is all but worshipped in many, many parts of Asia, Africa, the Middle East, the Caribbean etc? Will that help you to dry them away and stop creating scenarios that make you oppressed in your head?

    where is that definition from?
    The dictionary definition of racism is
    "the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races."

    Yes obviously - but it's not as 'insulting' to a white person if they get called a white whatever than it is to someone who is not white being insulted.

    So your argument is based on one woman's belief which she supplies no evidence to support and completely ignores the definition of the word which she is defining.

    Maybe you should go look for the actual definition of racism rather than looking for a definition that ignores the actual definition to support your stance

    What about white people in South Africa? How many black people are murdered on the streets nowadays because of their race?

    And there are also many areas where there is a large about of post-colonial anger towards Whites. Like most cases of discrimination it depends on where you and who you are. Being less likely to be a victim of racism, does not mean those victims don't actually exist.

    As a point Slavics and Eastern Europeans in general are discriminated against in the West, and then conversely told that they are privileged because they are white.

    What's funny is that some peoples (those claiming whites cannot be discriminated against) obsession with grouping everyone into factions based on their skin colour completely miss the fact that ethnic discrimination goes deeper than that (e.g Hutu/Tutsi conflicts).

    Racism isn't an institution. I really dislike this new postmodern redefinition of it. An institution can be racist, but racism not itself an institution; it is an attitude, a behaviour, a quality.

    The whole power + prejudice thing is mostly garbage, too. You don't need to have much power to do or say something racist. You can discriminate, mock, or mistreat somebody on racial grounds regardless of who you are and what colour your skin is. What's worse is that this power dynamic is defined collectively, and essentially makes broad assumptions about the backgrounds, experiences, and capabilities of individual persons based on their racial characteristics. They do the exact same thing they say is immoral. Identity politics is the worst. It robs people of their individuality and their agency, and is hypocritical to the core.

    OK. Let's break it down.

    Let's use the dictionary definition that you are obsessed with, that racism "is the belief that once race is superior to another"

    So. OK. How do you prove that ? And how is that played out ?

    You asked how a dictionary definition was played out etc. The simple fact is that you clearly understand little about sociological and political issues regarding this 'issue'.

    Of course you can be racist to a white person.

    Saying that you CAN'T is just a reinforcement that white is the "base" of the races, as in, is the "original" race therefore you cannot be racist to whats "normal", like how black people would see whites as the superior race and that it reinforces that black people are less than them (that kind of thinking gets passed down to them, and we're only like 5 generations in)

    YOU CAN BE RACIST TO ANY RACE.

    THATS WHY ITS CALLED RACE-IST.

    If nothing else fails try and win the debate with an insult - Eh ?

    When someone resorts to ad homs, that's the sign that the person has lost the debate
