This is a rather controversial topic and I saw it being discussed on facebook so I thought I'd ask you guys.
(I myself am white, so no, this thread isn't me voicing my racist views)
Some say that you can't be racist towards the people that created racism. Others say that white people need have undergone years of oppression for their skin color before experiencing racism. Is it just discrimination when a white person is abused?
What are your thoughts?
Edit: Share your examples of racism towards a white person, and what you personally think racism is (not just a google definition of racism).
Saying that one group of people is immune to being racist is incredibly dangerous. If these people are truly fighting for equality they'd understand that being racist to white people is completely possible.
Of course you can be. If someone beats someone up soley because they are white then that's racist. Obviously racism against white people hasn't been anyway near the scale of the other way round, it still happens though. When my sister had a black boyfriend she got abuse off some black women and white men.
The fact that this even needs to be debated is disgusting.
Liberals accuses all whites of being racist relentlessly, don't cry to me when it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy
Can you be racist to white people if you're white?
Yes, I've been racially abused for being white
It doesnt matter who started racism and how it is being used,if it is discrimination to another race no matter black white asian or whatnot, it is racism.
How many times have you heard people of other races referring to white people as a 'white boy' or a 'white girl'.
People say some girls are 'such white girls' which many people don't see as racist or prejudiced because they see it as jokey and referring to their like of Starbucks, getting drunk quickly etc. However it is racist because you are stereotyping a group of people.
I can't imagine the s**t white people would get if they started saying 'you're such a black girl' or referring to men as 'black boys'.
You can, racism isn't exclusive to one specific race, just because racism directed at white people isn't publicised doesn't mean it doesn't happen. Your title suggests white people have immunity from racism and are far superior.
