I was twelve years old when I first encountered racism. I heard one guy call another a wetback. I looked at the back of the guy and it was completely dry. I said "That's funny, his back doesn't look wet. Nobody spilled anything on him." Some people laughed at this, and explained to me that wetback was a racial slur for Mexicans.
Now let's turn this around. Let's say that the guy was a black man. How would the responses differ?
Of course you know they would be. Remember, it's okay for a black man to be racist towards whites but not whites because of things like slavery and civil rights movement of the 1960s.
Racism is wrong, it's wrong for everybody, not just a select few.
Morality must be equal across the board or it ceases to become morality and instead becomes special privileges and double standards.
But that;s not the reality.
Let's further turn this around. If it had been whites sold into slavery instead of blacks and the civil rights movement was about whites, would it be okay for whites to call each other cracker and not okay for blacks to use that term?
Of course not.
Because it's all about racism and putting people down in any way shape or form.
Am I a racist?

Even civil rights leaders profile. “There is nothing more painful for me at this stage in my life,” Jesse Jackson said several years ago, “than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery—and then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”
