    Racism is discrimination based on race, so it's not 'reverse racism', it's just racism.

    Yes they can and its just called racism.

    Calling something reverse racism, sexism etc is just a way to downplay the whatever has been said.

    You should learn to use analytical thinking and logic to form your own views rather than parroting the witterings of some social justice warrior on the internet.

    Yes, you were fooled into resorting to the fallacy of the appeal to authority. But you didn't name your authority so that people could damn it with sensible argument.

    Actually this is the definition of racism:

    "prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior"

    Also "you can only be racist if you´re privileged" is false. If someone insults another person for their race, it´s racism, that's it, no matter is that person is a minority or not.
    If I go to a country somewhere in Africa and insult someone for being black, that would be racist even if I am a minority there. Just as if someone black goes to Europe and insults a person for being white, that person would be racist even if they are a minority there.

    well it depends on your interpretation and veiw: read the two articles and tell me if it changes your vewi

    Just saying an article has no credibility unless you reference it so we can verify it and people can assess its merits

    i wasn't 'fooled' into agreeing with it because of the reputation or 'authority' of the source, i already had that view, before I found out the website which helped source my view
