Black people can be prejudiced, which they are one of the biggest prejudiced people in America.

Racism is about white structural power, etc.
So there is no racism in predominantly black countries?

Words have definitions, you can't just change the definition for political agendas.


You are changing the definition of racism to something that it is not. Look at the real and entire definition. There is nothing about "white" or "non-white." Nothing about "white structural power" or even "structural power."


Your definition of racism is actually an example of racism. To claim that one group can be and the other can't be racist.


Secondly, non-whites can be in a position of power and use that power against other races if they wanted - no? For starters blacks can be CEOs, presidents, principals, cops, generals, physically strong, etc... That mob of black teens that attacked white families with fireworks and then beat them up when they complained were exerting power were they not?

Oh man, do I have some stories for you. Growing up a whiteboy in the Inner City (with siblings too) in my high school the whites were the "minorities".


Yes, I have some stories of utter hatred directed at me and my family that you can't imagine. Crazy, scary stuff.

The last time I looked, Black people are human beings. Human beings are capable of lot of things, racism being one of them.

Is this a serious question?
