White people who are confronted with their white privilege and the white supremacist acts they perpetuate have been known to cry, “You’re being a reverse-racist!” That is completely true: people of color have the power and control to create, perpetuate, and maintain brutal systematic reverse-racism that oppresses white people every day. As such, we have created this handy list on how to continue this oppression.

How To Be A Reverse-Racist: An Actual Step by Step List For Oppressing White People


Absolutely hilarious, while at the same time extremely accurate. This is exactly what it would take for Black people, or any other "minority" group to be labeled as "reverse racists."

Don't kill the messenger, folks. And please don't miss the point and start calling me a "reverse racist."
I am White, by the way.

Sold them into slavery to whom? Exactly.

I do love when people try to use that "Well it was Africans who sold their own people into slavery" junk. Of course that's a fact. It's common knowledge. Doesn't change that it was the Europeans who took them into slavery for hundreds of years and committed all kind of atrocities against them.

Please don't try to whitewash history or pass the buck.

Too bad most people here will accuse the writer of playing the "race card" and the discussion will devolve into the typical dead-end ATS conversation on race.

Then again, people have to be able to confront realities that make them uncomfortable. The reality here is that we have white people who think that they're being oppressed and thus, they use that race card mumbo-jumbo, etc.

Actually the first legal slave owner in the US was an African American.
Anthony Johnson


Anthony Johnson was an Angolan African held as an indentured servant by a merchant in the Colony of Virginia in 1620, but later freed to become a successful tobacco farmer and owner. Notably, he was the first to hold a black African servant as a legal slave in the mainland American colonies.


People are people, and many are stupid regardless of their skin color.

Wait a minute!!!!

Your telling me..... Africans build ships, so that they could travel to America ( and dump many of them into the sea while chained together is they became sick ) and sell their kin to other africans?

Thats news to me!!!!
I thought white people had something to do with it some how...

Go figure. We are talking about history here right??

I'm white and had nothing to do with slavery, except the white kind. Can you write about that?

America is not the world. Hating all white people because of what 1% of American's did is not justice.. it's pointless hatred.

Bow, this isn't about hating White people nor is it about blaming all White people for slavery. Did you even read the link?


Seriously, it's about people who try to claim "reverse racism" which is a complete false equivalence.

Im white and Ive never felt discriminated against by blacks personally. But are you saying no blacks are ever racist? I seriously doubt that.

I read the link and had a few chuckles, especially at the picture.

But the implication here is still that no such thing as racism toward whites exists.

I don't think that's supposed to be the implication at all. I think it's pointing out how some White people love to cry reverse racism (while almost always denying that racism itself exists) when what they are complaining about isn't "reverse racism" in the least bit. Then it points out in a very humorous way what would be necessary to exist for White people to truly experience full racism as, for instance, Black people experienced it for hundreds of years. It's basically trying to educate some White people to full the list of atrocities that Black people have experienced in the past few hundred years.

That's my take on it.

Reverse Racism exist, maybe not to the point of oppressing a different race, but the fact is Reverse Racism exist,

Fair enough. Blacks have been more oppressed than whites, thats true. Lets hope that the oppressed dont one day take revenge and become the oppressors.

Yeah! If you want to talk about slavery, why don't you give our friends in the Middle East and North Africa an "honorable mention"? From 650 AD to 1900 AD it is estimated that they took over 18 million slaves from Africa, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, the United States, and many other countries.

Of the estimated 12 million slaves the came to the Americas, only 650,000 ended up in the United States, yet we are often considered the "bad guys" when it comes to slavery. I wonder how many of those that were descended from that 650,000 would be willing to accept a one way ticket back to the land of their "roots". I'll bet there wouldn't be very damn many! Instead of whining and crying about the past, they should be thankful those days are long gone.

See ya,
Milt

Oh. "Only" 650,000. How silly of anyone to be upset about such a small number.
I'd love to see your source for these numbers, though.

And no one is denying the Arab slave trade of the Africans.

Actually, Technically, it's Racism.

Not "Reverse Racism" mind you... just Regular Racism.

Never forget... that you will *NEVER* be a human being to these people... you are merely "White"

All I know is I have been to many job interviews and have been told that "you're qualified and I'd love to hire you, but we were really looking for a black guy for this job. The EEOC has been on our butts lately and we need to shore up our numbers". I have heard that many more times than anyone ever should. To me it's racism and it's wrong and how dare they deny me a job because of the color of my skin?
