Does Reverse Racism exist?

Postby Albul » Sun Feb 22, 2015 8:12 pm

http://www.dailydot.com/opinion/reverse ... snt-exist/

In essence, "reverse racism" is the discrimination of a majority (i.e. white/Caucasian) by a minority. In essence, the reversal of what most people deem to be racism. Most of those who denounce reverse racism tend to argue that reverse discrimination cannot exist because the oppressed party does not have the institutional power to "return the favor", so to speak. Often, the term has a negative connotation as "white victims" and "white power" advocates tend to use it to support them.

I, for one, think that the term is a big load of hooey, since it implies that there is a "normal" racism, then a "reverse" racism. While I agree that discrimination of majorities from minorities is an issue, it is not as prevalent as the discrimination of minorities from majorities. I do believe that it is a double standard and that one is more socially acceptable than the other, but we should be focusing our resources to fighting flat-out racism rather than "normal" racism or "reverse" racism. For example, as a Latino, I have been to predominantly Latino parties where people shun "the white guy", yet in everyday life, I am called "the Mexican" despite not being Mexican. Neither situation is right, and I often fight against the racist parties in both sides, but these situations present a double standard.

What do you think, NSG? Is it a thing? If so, is it acceptable?

I guess the whites in Zimbabwe must be the ruling party, that's why their land was just confiscated. I guess Obama isn't "our first black president" either, rather he's the 44th white one, eh?

Racism goes both ways. Racism is never good, whether it's white on black, black on white, etc.

"Reverse racism" is a stupid term. Racism is racism.
"The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I'm saying? We knew we couldn't make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders. raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did."—former Nixon domestic policy chief John Ehrlichman

When did SJWs start changing the definitions of racism and sexism to "things only white people can do"?


Also, to prove that reverse racism exists, you must first prove that racism even exists and that it's something I should actually care about.

rac·ism
ˈrāˌsizəm/Submit
noun
the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.

No.

If the a member of a minority -no matter how small- is making assumptions that the majority -no matter how big- is inferior or in someway defined by race, we called that racism. The term "Reverse Racism" is ignorant, in that it assumes that only the majority is "actually" racist.

Yes. But that doesn't mean reverse racism exists. Because it doesn't.

Reverse racism is not a thing. If I hate black people, I'm racist. If I hate white people, I'm still racist. You don't even need to throw in the word "reverse," because the racism is still there. The racism against whites is just racism targeted at whites specifically. In the end it doesn't even matter; All types of racism should be opposed, even reverse racism if we're to say this is actually a thing.

I don't think racism is something a entire "race" can do. Its a person to person preference that ignorant fools have nothing more.

Yes both racism and reverse racism exist but just because someone is white,tan,black, or even blue (joke but u get my point) does NOT mean they are racist.

This forums arguement/debate is broken because it uses flawed views that tag groups of people in a stereo type when it should be individually tagged. I for one do not have any negative feelings against any race. I look down upon others who do because those times have past and we are civilized enough to know that the only thing that defines a person is their actions and reasons. Nothing more or less.

Just to prove that stereo types don't work when talking about racism i will point out that I am white but my personal "hero" or person i look up to for wisdom and knowledge is Morgan freeman.

Maybe it would be a form of racism where one thinks another race is inherently superior to their own?

If we claim the existence of a 'reverse' racism, then there must be an 'obverse' racism, which presumes a norm that is present in the operation of racism, which is an abstract concept.

They are presumably referring to western nations. If that is the case then they are partially correct. Blacks can be racist but the extents to which they can discriminate are limited by the fact that they hold literally no power.
