You'll have to excuse this guy for not being funny, but he does a pretty good job of summarizing the argument that "reverse racism doesn't exist."

To go into a bit more detail, the argument goes like this: minority groups can't be racist because they don't have the authority, power or inclination to suppress white people. Racism isn't just disliking someone for their race, it is when a dominant group goes about systematically denying people their rights and privileges, using social pressure or the government. Because minorities don't have the power or inclination to do that, and because they haven't done so historically, they aren't racists.

Do you buy this or no?

One of the worst semantics arguments of all time. Someone will come in here and post a websters definition and then someone will counter with an excerpt from an academic test and the whole thing is f**k pointless.

"Racial bigotry" is a universally accepted term for what people often colloquially refer to as "racism". I am all for using "racial bigotry" to describe individuals who hate other individuals for their race, and never hearing this stupid f**k debate again.

Also, I know you warned us but that comedian is painfully unfunny.

His entire f**k routine is this stuff too. It's awful.

I accept your argument as valid and I support it 100%.

what's annoying is that racism is a catch-all term. the 'power+prejudice" bullshit that people decided to make up recently is called institutional racism.

i'm not big on the anti-white conspiracy shit but i'm convinced this argument became popular to allow for a double standard among the more radical anti-racists.

No. The problem I have with this whenever it comes up is that whether you're pro or con you have accept race as central in political decision making and government action and that's a red herring.

Reverse racism is like reversing a car. It doesn't happen nearly as often as regular racism or regular driving. But when it does happen, they'll always be some white (lights) warning you it's happening.

Well, when the entire planet is third world, then we will be closest to equal that we have ever been. But for now, equality only exists in the grave yard.

Agreed.

The "racism" that most people take offense to generally falls into two categories:

1.) People in power who are, either through action or inaction, working to create conditions more favorable to a particular race at the expense of another race or races.
2.) Generalizations, whether positive, negative, or neutral about a group of people.

Both can be symptoms of what is actually racism and both can actually exist entirely outside of racism.

But what do I know? I'm just chalked full of white privilege. It's pouring out my ears.

Today, white privilege and black oppression are both equal in their status as total BS. However, if you invented a time machine and went back a few hundred years, both would be true.

How do you tell a white person from a non-white person? Middle Easterners look white to me.
