Can whites be victims of racism?

If a white man is severely beaten by a black group simply for been in the wrong area of town it would be impossible to claim you was racially attacked but if it was the other way around and a black man was beaten in a white part of town the police would be all over it,and it would probably be on the news and in the paper for the next month.the white man is now a second class human being we have less rights than the rest.
the white man will be forced to sit at the back of the bus if things carry on as they are,its a complete joke we can not fight back on the same level as we are attacked or its just pure racism if we aren't the ones getting an ass kicking.edit on 24-7-2013 by SupersonicSerpent because: (no reason given)edit on 24-7-2013 by SupersonicSerpent because: (no reason given)edit on 24-7-2013 by SupersonicSerpent because: (no reason given)
"See, slavery left mental and physical scars on blacks, so much to the point that all generations behind it are automatically affected by it.

They only pretend to be over this feature, but it will always be there."
The founders of the United States, like the early population, were almost entirely of Protestant background. Catholicism met much resistance in the United States until sheer numbers forced its integration into American society. A deep anti-Catholic sentiment, inherited from Great Britain, existed in colonial America. Some colonies had laws restricting or banning Catholicism. The settling of the colony of Maryland by English Catholics was perhaps the only exception. At the time of the Revolution, Catholics made up just over one percent of the American population. While the First Amendment to the Constitution guaranteed freedom of religion, it did not compel Protestant Americans to accept Catholic newcomers. Protestants resented Catholicism on theological grounds, often making fun of and belittling Catholic religious rites and customs. The common Christian link between Protestantism and Catholicism meant little.
For those Nat Am, leaving the reservation would guarantee that they would encounter racism. Most of the time, whites don't experience it because they tend to be in the majority in areas
