Is Reverse Racism Real?
When I hear whites crying about their plight in this New AmeriKlan, I stop and take notice. When I hear wealthy white men and women pointing out how unfair this country is for them, I stop and listen…desperately…for them to tell me how.
“Ohhhhh…you can’t possibly understand how hard it is to be white nowadays! I’m the victim here…you know, with all this reverse racism against white folks! It’s not fair….*sobbing* ….It’s not right!”
What’s a sister to do? So I open my mouth and say…
“Ummm, excuse me, sir? There’s no such thing.”
*sobbing stops and the hate stare begins*
The very system of white supremacy dictates who can and cannot be victims.
Whites, since the beginning, have self-segregated from the undesirable other. It is because of that self proclaimed privilege that they are able to oppress others, discriminate against others, scapegoat others whilst elevating themselves to supreme status. Now, with the “browning” of AmeriKlan, along with a black guy for president, whites are feeling more threatened than ever.
On the basis of race, creed and skin colour, non-whites are claiming certain privileges once reserved for whites, i.e. affirmative action. Which begs the question:
Is reverse racism real and if so how?
