Can whites be victims of racism?

So you are saying that you have never heard a black man call a white man a "Cracka"? Have you ever heard a Mexican a white man a "Gringo"
You have your damn nerve to say that Caucasian Americans can't be discriminated against because they are white. Surely you are Not that damn Naive, are you?
So, for me, the answer is NO. I am white and I am not subject to racism.

You really wanna see racism towards people? Then here's what ya do; Go into New York City wearing a WV shirt and hat and just wait for it. It seems totally acceptable too. You'll hear some of the most racist, terrible things ever about you. And if you retort, you'll be made-out to be the racist or "anti-Semitic".
Then, if you really, and I mean REALLY, wanna see racism, while wearing that WV garb, break down almost anywhere in a black neighborhood, anywhere in America. I don't know if you'll live to tell about it though, so actually, don't do this because I fear for your safety. When I done it in N.C. when my car blew up on the interstate, a car load of black males tried to run me over as I walked by the side of the road. Then, they shot at me while laughing. I didn't fire back in this instance because mama didn't raise no fools. Finally, a construction crew stopped and picked me up, and they were from WV originally, but had lived in NC for 15 years. They said: "my god man, what're you doin' walkin' 'round here fer? You gotta death wish or sumthin'?"
Then, for good measure, have a black man break down way out in the country somewhere, and have him walk the road. I bet 99% chance that someone will help him, and that he will be treated well. I know of it happening.
I'd like to see an episode of: What Would You Do with either of these scenarios above used. LOL You will never see that episode, though. Never!
