Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

Whites the only racist ones?

with 2 comments

Are whites really the only racist race?  I’ve told a few of my friends about this class and they kind of just laugh at me. They say that white people are not the only racists and said that they feel that black people or hispanics are and/or sometimes more racist then white people.

Could this be because of the way blacks/hispanics see whites as racist so there attitude towards whites are bad causing whites to feel like blacks/hispanics are being racist against them?

  1. I don’t think whites are the only racist ones, but, they’re the only ones, generally, who hold enough power to have an impact based on their views. Most high ranking professionals in society are white, therefore, it is more of a problem when whites are racist. If someone who has little to no authority is racist, their opinions will probably never see any real impact on their enviroment which is why it goes under the radar. It’s not that it doesn’t exist, it’s that we don’t acknowledge it.

  2. The world sees blacks and Hispanics as suffering the most for many many years so we kind of don’t fuss as much when anyone other than white is being apparently racist. Sad, but that’s just the world we live in
