Are people with white skin more impacted/susceptible to racism than other skin tones?

It appears the concept of racism is uniquely defined as a whites against blacks thing in America.

How are thoughts so rigidly defined?

Well since it is white folks who are and have historically acted in a racist manner to all non white people NOT just Africans and people of African descent, racism is owned by white folks.

Sorry.

Whites are the Majority in America, own most of the power, so they gonna get the brunt of the blame. Underdog always gonna get the sympathy.

I have also heard racism is tied to power, so it is impossible for non-whites to be racist since they don't have the "power".
I disagree.

So you are arguing it’s a genetic thing associated with white skin?

Does the “concept of racism” negatively impact whites more than other races?

Pretty clearly no. And why do you think racism is only "whites against blacks"?

I am not a racist, I believe that everyone is equally worthless. LOL



Seriously. The worse cases of racism I have ever witnessed came from a white guy and a black guy. Racism might be about skin tone but it is not exclusive to white people.





I think white people, largely those that identify as Democrats carry a guilt that they have nothing to do with. None of us can change what happened during the dark days of slavery and we cannot change the struggles that afflict the Black community since then but we can help every single day by simply accepting and treating any person that we meet that looks differently than us with respect.

I still see the "Black Lives Matter" signs in yards in my town and all I can think is who are you trying to impress? Yes, black lives matter as do ALL lives but singling out only black ones is a form of racism.



I'd say the people that are the most upset about racism actually have a guilty conscious and they are trying to cover up their true feelings with their anti racism virtue signaling.

It’s not tied to power. People just made that up so they can be racist towards WHITES.

We’ve have seen society agitating/altering controversy sounding the treatment of people by whites. Have we not?
