Now there seems to be a huge misconception that Conservatives are more racist than liberals. However, that is not the case!

Liberals themselves can be racist to minorities.

I would like to introduce a video:



Also this:




If you're still with me, and aren't in total denial, consider these 10 ways white liberals engage in subtle racism, as offered in Pendler and Beverly's The Racism Rootkit: Understanding the Insidiousness of white Privilege:

1. Denial: Denying we could ever have racist thoughts, or that we reap the benefits as a member of the majority race, is a common defense of liberal White Americans. By denying the existence of our racist thoughts, we negate the depth of the racial divide. "But I don't even see color." As if by being color-blind we can resolve the racial pain people of color live out. Pendler and Beverly note, "An inability to be open to the possibility that the experience of the other could be valid is a consistent element of white supremacy."

2. Shame & Hurt: When focus remains on the White person, and our emotional wounds, this is classic deflection and redirection. "I'm so embarrassed I said that!" This common phrase can be heard when something hurtful may have been said to a person of color. The truly injured party, however, remains unrecognized. By having the courage to confront a racial slight, a person of color is made to feel that they have misread us, or hurt our feelings. We might also say: "I'm hurt that you think of me like that." This further draws the attention back to us, and away from the real issue of pain felt by the person of color. When sympathy transfers to the white person, no awareness or learning occurs. No trust is built. Try this next time you're confronted with something insensitive: "I hear how my words or actions hurt you. Thank you for pointing that out to me."

One example for a white liberal racist was none other Hillary Clinton herself:

This is one proof that there is no difference between Democrats and Republicans.

Martin Luther King Himself even warned against White Liberal Racists or Moderates as he calls them:




"First, I must confess that over the last few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Council-er or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action;" who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a "more convenient season."


Shallow understanding from people of goodwill is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection." ...


"In spite of my shattered dreams of the past, I came to Birmingham with the hope that the white religious leadership of this community would see the justice of our cause, and with deep moral concern, serve as the channel through which our just grievances would get to the power structure. I had hoped that each of you would understand. But again I have been disappointed. I have heard numerous religious leaders of the South call upon their worshippers to comply with a desegregation decision because it is the law, but I have longed to hear white ministers say, "follow this decree because integration is morally right and the Negro is your brother." In the midst of blatant injustices inflicted upon the Negro, I have watched white churches stand on the sideline and merely mouth pious irrelevancies and sanctimonious trivialities. In the midst of a mighty struggle to rid our nation of racial and economic injustice, I have heard so many ministers say, "those are social issues with which the gospel has no real concern.", and I have watched so many churches commit themselves to a completely other-worldly religion which made a strange distinction between body and soul, the sacred and the secular. So here we are moving toward the exit of the twentieth century with a religious community largely adjusted to the status quo, standing as a tail-light behind other community agencies rather than a headlight leading men to higher levels of justice."

The whole racist thing totally baffles me, but in America it's being pushed hard and fast for reasons known only to the vile manifestations we call GOVERNMENT.

I love that all of the examples from the OP are white people doing wrong.

I'm so sorry, but to reach equality it is every ethnicity needing to compromise, not just whites compromising to blacks. Otherwise we leave out so many other ethnic cultures with the same or more repression.

As a white person who has lived in the ghetto where I was the only white person in the neighborhood I will tell you straight up that minorities can be very racist too.. but please, continue with your ignorance and rudeness if you wish. From your post I can tell you are a very tolerant person. "Narrow mind" .. perhaps take a good look at yourself in the mirror my friend.

please explain...were you picked on bc you were white? did you not fit in bc you were white?

Did you know that I did not fit into my lilly white highschool and I was white too? Was I a victim of racism bc if I were black, I would have been more accepted?

Was your WHITE RACE shot at by the cops then covered up, was your WHITE SCHOOL burned down, white children died... then covered up by the cops and political figures?

Tell me, how were you a victim?

actually please don't, I really don't care

I should say that's the very definition of white liberal racism. They claim to support Civil Rights yet they either act against it or they simply just act indifferent to it. That's what Martin Luther King was saying. Basically they are hypocrites.

Here is what Malcolm X says about white liberals:

I totally agree. In fact I think everyone should accept that truth and move forward so that we no longer have to try and prove one side is better than the other. Let's agree that when all things are considered it's best to call it a tie and move on rather than continue any longer with the pointless bickering and blame game.

If you are unacceptable, you are actually free.

If you are a white male, you are never going to earn the respect of the social justice worriers. You will never be guilty enough, never ashamed enough, never sorry enough.

You will never put in place "enough" affirmative action. You will never pay enough taxes for some free-loader's welfare. You can never be polite enough, cowed enough into submission, never pro-feminist or pro-socialist or pro-anything enough.


You are hereby and henceforth set free.

If you are a white male, you will always suck. End of story. So relax. Go have a beer. Watch a ballgame. Play some poker with your buds. Maybe go camping this weekend.

Since nothing you can do will ever change it, you don't ever have to care anymore. Racism no longer has a hold on you. People telling you that you need to change, to "grow a bigger brain", are just more salesmen trying to tell you what to think. Eff 'em, Bucky.

You are free, if you want to be.

Why?

Because only whites can be racist?

Or because it is impossible to be racist towards whites?

Both are stupid versions of reasoning.

If you do not care for others, why should they care for your view/cause?

I was beat up routinely for being white, just so you know. My life was threatened everyday and the reason stated was that I am white, and they didn't like white people. My life was hell. But my family was too poor to live anywhere else, so we had to deal with the daily threats and getting our house shot up. White people can be victims too, you know. Just like Asians can, Hispanics can, black people, EVERYONE CAN. Do you know what the definition of racism even is? It isn't "when white people hate all minorities because of their race." Look it up if you feel confused. Racism is not a one way street. May want to listen to this intelligent young man, he says it better than I can - to stop racism, whites need to start calling out racist whites, blacks need to call out racist blacks, hispanics need to call out racist hispanics" etc.

youtu.be...

Educate yourself. You'll be doing yourself a huge favor.

And if you didn't fit in with your white high school, I don't think it is because you are white.. you seem quite rude right about now and that may have more to do with it. Just be glad you went to that school and not mine. You would have fit in a whole lot less, and your whole act here would have gotten you no love from the students there. They wouldn't have cared. Because you are white. They wouldn't want YOUR sympathy or kind there.

It is true. White liberals can be racist. Not all of them, but there are some.

The same can be said of any color or political lean. There are racists out there and they are not limited to certain demographics.

Which leads me to ask what the point of threads like this?

There are racist white conservatives as well. Seems to me this thread is just another in a long line of narratives who's purpose is to project the negative traits of one group on to another because it makes them feel better about themselves.

A good example, other than this issue, would be the "socialism=fascism" nonsense. Right Wingers have been pushing that rhetoric for some time because they refuse to admit and come to terms with their own tendency to be authoritarian.

Or in other words, it is the equivalent of "I know you are, but what am I".

In all fairness, the OP did say that there wasn't much difference between Dems and Reps. My comments are directed in general to threads and topics such as highlighted in the OP.

The issue is far too many people think that liberals=good and conservative=bad. I'm trying to show a lot of people that both parties are the same and no party are good.

Right now part of the reason the US is divided because of the false illusion that Democrats and Republicans are different.

Ever heard of Divide and Rule? This is what politicians are doing.
