If a black guy says something about the white race, it's not racisist, but if a white guy does the same thing except with a different race, it is considered racist.

Slavery. /thread Our pasts and still at times today, many whites tend to believe they are the dominate race. So we are supposed to take racist comments toward us because of the horrors we have instilled. *Note* I do not agree with what I said, it is just something I have observed.

Racism towards whites is very prevalent in America.

For some reason, you guys do not have some pompous as such as Al Sharpton.

I'm going to be really, really honest here with my response, and it may sound REALLY rascist but hey, that's the subject matter, isn't it?

Whenever someone of another race tries to put me down by calling me a 'cracker' or 'snowflake' or what have you, all I can help to think to this is, 'Well yeah, you're right, I am white. Am I supposed to be offended?'

I don't see anything to be offended about when someone calls me a racial name, I'm proud of my ethnicity and can only laugh when someone tries putting me down for it because they're so insecure about THEIR own ethnicity.

Have some self pride in yourself.

Obviously you must sheild yourself off from the rest of the world, because there is a hella lot of white racism going on. But the thing is we don't take it seriously.

It's called Double Standards. It's not like I enslaved anyone. It was all my forefathers doing. But apparently many black folk these days like to take it out on us. Although, saying that, I don't think what are forefathers did was right.

Any insult should be considered "racist", unless its towards another animal. Its being racist to a human. We are the human race, after all.

It does exist, it's just not acknowledged because apparently white people were never 'discriminated against' in history like black people, asians (I say this collectively, because often people mistake one group for another or just group them together), natives etc.

i've witness PLENTY of anti-white racism.

I went to an public school that was in the suburbs, but for some reason alot of inner city kids who were mostly black attended the school en mass (nothing wrong with that, I had many black friends) so I happened to witness mush racism, very outspoken racism too.

*edit* wow typos lol.

There is a ton of it. Whites just seem more resilient to it. It does not seem to phase white people. While other races seem to throw a temper tantrum about it.

Yeah. I certainly don't have any guilt on my mind with regards to racism. Sure, Caucasians have done horrific things to people. You could say the same thing of any group of humans on the planet. No group of people is innocent of racism or from bloodshed due to the acts of their ancestors. Caucasians tend to be targeted because the USA was founded and is still dominated by a white majority. Easy target.

Racism exists among all people against all people...even though when our skin is cut, we bleed the same. The only place racism toward whites doesn't exist is in the media...because it would be politically incorrect to do so.

i've noticed this. White's accept it. For example Blacks call whites crackers sometimes and Whites don't care but if you say. (sorry if this is bad mods) "the n word" then Blacks will get mad. It's just that whites think they are superior and when someone puts their race down they ignore it thinking they are just jealous.

You could argue that we haven't really had many real problems with it, other than when we were a new country and were racist against eachother (the irish were mistreated etc...)

this man speaks the truth. it's like how a man can have sex with 100s of women and most would call him "Da Man" but if a woman have sex with 100s of men she called a whore. but in all fairness both are equally wrong just like racisism of any kind is wrong. thx:) norm

I think "African-American" is more of a racist term. You're assuming all black people come from Africa. Ideally people wouldn't be tiptoeing around each other like this.

it's ridiculous.

I would love for someone who thinks whites of today are responsiple for slavery to try and prove that my ancestors supported slavery.

for all they know my ancestors came from europe after slavery ended. even IF they did support slavery, I'm still not responsiple, at all.

Everyone should watch the episode of Penn & Teller BS that talks about this issue.

Then why should "black" be? Or "cracker"? Or indeed the N word? They're all means to describe who we are.
