Where I come from even some black people are racist. (towards black people) particular educated black people towards those uneducated.
Because what is often called racism is really discrimination to a particular sub culture.
There is a certain subculture of black people that is simply impossible not to hate. It is the subculture that glorifies ignorance, selfishness and
crime. Ignorance selfishness and crime are BAD. People who are proud of that are BAD. that many happen to be black at least around where I live is
unfortunate, but true. But a subculture is a small, yet very visible group. This plays unfairly to the typical black person who's just paying their
taxes and trying to make a living.
And white kids that act the same way are no different.
Behavior leads us to make judgement based on appearances. Clothing, language and body language are deeply tied to subcultural traits.
Over time some of those traits become disentangled from the culture they came from. If I traveled 70 years back in time I would be discriminated
against for wearing a leather jacket, because that was how thugs looked back then and no self respecting law abiding man would have worn clothing like
that back then.
Gradually and over time hoodies, sneakers, and other typical gang attire become assimilated into the treadmill of fashion thanks to rebellious
suburban white teenagers and eventually loose their edge as those teenagers grow to be the hipsters and alternative subculture of young adults, some
with college degrees.
But the treadmill never stops. And the treadmill starts with gang culture.
