Who suffers the most racism?

Please give backing evidence including forms of racism, whether subtle or blatant, such as discrimination, oppression, violence, white privilege, affirmative action, systematic bias, crime, political correctness, police injustice, quotas, subsidies, welfare, prison, etc. and whether it depends on age and place.

When whites are discriminated against, it is because they can't say hateful statements without being shamed in public. When blacks are discriminated against, it's usually always at the business end of a cop's nightstick. Perspective, some people need to gain it

Whites suffer more racism and backlash. One can't even join a group for lower taxes without being called a racist.. One can't differ from Obama's ideology without being called a racist.

White people are all racists according to black liberation theology of which Obama's church says all white people are of the devil and are the oppressors of the world.

To say black people still don't face racism is unfair. To claim that whites do not face discrimination is also unfair.

However, things are a hell of a lot better now than they were even 20 years ago.

obviously there IS racism and i KNOW this as i am BLACK

however all of this NONSENSE that you see in the MEDIA fukks it up so that now whenever there is an event of REAL racism happening people done got so irritated from hearing every fkkng day that xyz is RACIST that they dont/wont pay attention.

how ironic it is that WHITE PEOPLE specifically WHITE LIBERALS are the ones who spend every waking hour of the day calling other people RACIST smh

i tell you white guilt is a muthaf****

it's basically a game now... white liberals hire waffle colored people to go on tv and scream racism and pro-black rhetoric and when the WCN's arent, the white liberals will be calling some other white guy(s) racist

all in an attempt to some how ease their white guilt

it's disgusting

I went with similar amounts.

When people are always called "racist" just because of their skin color, that is racism. Blacks still do suffer from racism but so do whites.

Actually you can do both of those things without being called a racist. Plenty of people on both the left and right do it every day.

Being for lower taxes and disagreeing with Obama doesn't get one branded a racist. Claiming you can't do either of those things without being called a racist does, however, get one branded a liar, and rightfully so.

I selected option #3, though it was based upon business-related and personal experience gained throughout my life, in areas with varying demographics. I would stipulate that blacks face more negative effects of such than whites do, though I certainly wouldn't classify it as "by far" unless I was being intellectually dishonest.
