AoS nailed it a few posts back; just because minority racism is less powerful than majority racism doesn't mean it isn't racism. I liken it to someone trying to kill you with a bat vs someone trying to kill you with a wiffle-bat because they didn't have a real one; I don't give the second guy any credit for not having the right tool for the job, he still tried to kill me.


What you've just said makes sense when we're discussing blame and guilt. When it comes to the negative impact on peoples' lives it actually makes it sound like placing the focus on racism enacted by white people is the right way to do things. Everyone's discriminating and everyone has guilty intent but the guy with the wifle-bat isn't a serious threat. It makes more sense to ignore him while using the majority of your energy on ensuring the guy with the real weapon doesn't cause too much harm.

The impact of various forms of racism and what to do about it is material for a different thread, I'm just talking about the word itself and who it rightfully applies to, as twisting word definitions around to "weaponize" them annoys the piss out of me.

I'm Asian [but have been told I pass for white but just tell that to the Neanderthals in the army who kept calling me "nip"] and I have no riche$ and feel superior to nobody. it is all about so many people feeling this need to feel superior to others. only angels [and above] are superior to humans.

How much are you Asian, my friend? I take it you are partially Caucasian?

Anyone can be racist, no matter which race they are.

It's sad to see racism still going these days, wish everyone would just accept not everyone is the same.

Whatever race or gender you are don't be racist that applies to everyone! Dont be racist to black people hispanic people Asian people or Arab people if your white and if your not white dont be racist to white people hispanic people Asian people or Arab people either its all BS we are all human we all began our roots in Africa the fossil record and genetic data proves it so racism is pointless!

Hell yeah our skin color does not determine our actions, if you think otherwise you have no logic or braincells whatsoever!
