"Can whites be victims of racism?"
At the moment no, not in the same way as blacks.
But if blacks rose up tomorrow and enslaved the whites, used them to get rich and build a country, then even when they let the whites go they still
segregated, oppressed, and lynched them. Then after decades of oppression whites had a civil rights movement and tried to reach equality, but
afterwards there was still segregation and oppression. And then even decades later when the first white president since bush made it into power,
whites still overwhelming made up the lower class while blacks still made up the majority of the upper class. THEN the blacks would be racist in the
SAME way whites are now. Then things would be equal.
Considering the background as context, the n-word and c-words are NOT equally hurtful.
It is our duty to be sensitive to the oppressed race's past and if putting up with a double standard is the worst thing we have to endure then whites
are getting off extremely lightly here. If I was black I'm not sure I could forgive and forget so easily - many alive today lived through jim crows
But playing the whites as victim in all of this (like so many ats threads are doing now) is really twisted.
Even trying to paint whites as equally victimized by racism is America is just wrong, I'm really getting sick of the sob stories about white
