First of all, I used the term sarcastically. There is obviously no such thing as reverse racism.
If you used it sarcastically you should brush up on your sarcasm. If it is obvious that there is no such thing as “reverse racism” why is it often
thrown around on this board? Moreover, why is it often regurgitated offline?
As far as the Family Reunion goes, How many whites, Asians or Mexicans are invited to BLACK family reunion?
In my area they have “Junetenth” and “Black Family Day”. Everyone is invited, and all types of people show up. However, the key emphasis is
the word family. On the flipside, how many blacks are invited to bar/bat mitzvahs? How many are invited to Cinco De Mayo or quinceaneras? How many are
invited to Chinese New Year celebrations?
What a nice name for a racially specific event huh? Family Reunion. So nice!
Yes, it is nice, and very appropriate.
Why are you trying to justify a new emerging era of racism, because some people in the past were also once racist?
Friend, before you make false accusations and form assessments based on whatever preconceived guilt you may have, you should understand the terms
discrimination, bias and prejudice. I say this because you, like many on this board, throw the words racist/racism around without even knowing when
I am not trying to justify a new emerging era of racism (whatever the hell that means), I’m simply justifying what so many have willfully
All human beings have the capacity for so called "racism".
But not all human beings experience the positive effects of WHITE PRIVELEGE.
I didn't say anything about it then, because I was born in 1979.
So being born in 1979 excludes you from speaking out now?
Stop trying to get pay back on me, for wrong of the past.
Friend, I don’t even KNOW you. What have I said that would lead you to believe I’m trying to “get pay back” from you?
And from another post of yours,
The fact is white people don't have some special tendency for racism. Its a flaw is some human beings. The sooner people realize that, the
better off we'll all be.
The fact is, white people have WHITE PRIVELEGE, and denying this or remaining oblivious to this is part of the problem and contributes to what is
known as “blind racism.” The sooner people realize that, the better off we’ll all be.
