But only white people can be racist, right?

More POC privilege.
When people say "only white people can be racist", they are talking about systematic racism and colloquial terms.

No one actually thinks only white people can be racist(prejudice), if you genuinely didnt understand the philosophical difference, then cool, but no excuse after today ok.

Being racist and prejudice are two different things. I'm sorry you don't have the brain capacity to understand that. Racist people actually believe their race is superior to another race. They also believe they hold power over that race. Being prejudice is just not liking a certain race. Many blacks don't like whites because of the past and they just don't trust them. Everyone is prejudice to a degree. You feel more comfortable around your own.

I grew up in a majority white suburb. Somewhere around 92% white. So imagine how my high school was. Whenever a new school year started, I couldn't wait to get to my new class to see if I would have anybody that looks like me. As soon as another black student walked in, we were instantly friends. I had white friends too but it's just something about being around someone that shares your culture. i.e. black church, family reunions, bbq's, etc.

Just curious,

Did you create a new thread earlier this year when a white woman was on video screaming at a Hispanic man, who was an American citizen, to "go back to where you came from?"

Rhetorical question, because you did not.

Wow, this outdid the idiocy of your previous post. Congratulations.

It clearly wasn’t some random shooting.

That's a different incident. Mansfield is 200 miles away from Cincinnati.

There should be a rule against using the word "allegedly" too many times in one short article. IMO allegedly is a weasel meaning, "I don't have all the facts yet."

The bolded is not actually in the dictionary definition of racism. It may be in the political definition, as told by social justice warriors, but not the dictionary definition. Anyone can be racist by the actual definition, only whites can be racist by the political definition.
