Do you not think that revers racism exists?

I do think it exists, but think that it is hugely overstated by the Republican Party and the premise makes no sense. Even if people are racist towards white people in America, that doesn't systemically disaffect white people because the majority of capital, jobs, and overall opportunity is controlled by white people. However, if many white people hold prejudice against black people and other minorities (which they do), that systemically disaffects them.

Why did I *passive aggressively* say "what?" I didn't recognize that you were saying "reverse." I thought you were saying some other term. Sorry!

You mean "reverse?" Yes, I recognize now that you were. Is English not your first language? If it isn't, then I think your English level is great!

I have been learning in school for almost 5-years. It is a requirement in the whole of Germany. Here, I know we have a lot of revers racism because I experience it a lot.

How so? I don't know much about German politics (as an American) . . .

I want to talk about American politics. I think there is systemic racism because there is a lot of reverse racism.

I think that there is systemic racism because of all types of racism, not just systemic racism?? What kind of argument is that Hans. Do you think there is more "reverse racism" than than racism to minorities?
theunchartedsteppes, 1 views, 1 rebuttals, 0

Yes because there is more whites in America than there are blacks, asians, and hispanics. There is more of them to be prejudiced against, if that makes sense.

Wouldn't that also mean that there are more whites that are racist against minorities? We agree that there a lot more whites than minorities in America. The only place we disagree is what percent of whites are racist and what percent of minorities are racist. Right?

No I think as a percentage whites are more racist than minorities because of the older generations and because it is their home country.

Yes, there will always be racism. However victimhood theology doesn't empower the individual. Instead it makes you reliant on government solving your problems. Take control of your life and find your own solutions. You can't make the world a fair place. The expectation is delusional.

Nobody is becoming "reliant" on the government. Policies such as affirmative action only give a fraction of the black community an advantage.

"Victimhood theology" only has malignant effects people adopt it when they aren't victims. The black population in America clearly are victims of hundreds of years of racism.

It is undeniable that Black Americans were victims of hundreds of years of racism. But, how exactly are they victims now? Can you point to any laws that explicitly discriminate against them? I bet not.

Black Americans receive harsher punishments for the same crimes. Though it is true that Black Americans commit more crimes on average, it is racist that they are punished harder than other races for the same crimes.

Black preschoolers are 3.6X more likely to be suspended than white preschoolers. Though this is simply my judgement, I do not think black preschoolers have behavior that is 3.6X as bad as their white counterparts.

65% of black children live in a single-parent home, compared to 24% of white children.

The average net worth of a white family is around 150k while the average black family has 8k. Across such a large sample size, racism is the only way the disparity can be explained.

There is massive inequality of opportunity between black and white Americans. That is, if you are born black you are a lot less likely to climb the social ladder than if you are white.

Systemic racism is undoubtedly still real, due to the massive disparity in household net worth, incarceration rates, employment rates, literacy rates, and almost every other metric between black americans and white americans.

Unequal outcomes do not mean unequal opportunities

Individual racism does exist. However, in the society of affirmative actions everywhere, there is no discrimination on the institution level.

Stereotypes and negative cultural perceptions of black people still exist, but there is no actual system that is intrinsically racist. All the evidence on the pro side just states discrepancies between blacks and whites, but they don't directly attribute this to any specific racist system in america... because there are none. Racism is still in issue but focusing on changing systems, rather than the broader culture and empowering black communities, just isn't it chief.

Systemic racism is a conspiracy theory created by the Wall Street elite to distract the populace from real issues.

Racism still occurs in the US, but far less than it did 50 years or even ten years ago and also less than in most other countries

There are no laws that afford privileges to white people that are not afforded to minorities.

By following this strict definition of systemic racism, you're right. There are no laws that outright discriminate against black people today. However, this country's racist history has lead to modern day inequality, which should be made up for but isn't.
