Do poepl really think this way? Backwards racism.

I was watching Wife swap(i know i know but we all have to have some brain rot time) and they g=had a family on there that would not have white people on their tv show, thought that anything new in the neighborhood that replaced something else is from a white person and was tkaing away from the community(not more population or growth). That everything taken from blacks is to be given back to them, and the local community center does not allow whites. Isn't this discrimination and segregation? Just wondering was this for show or is there people who think this way. I would get slapped by my mom if I would ever do some dumb junk like this to anyone.

  • What I hate is the term "reverse racism." It is stupid and makes NO sense. The "reverse" of racism is NO racism. Racism knows no color. By it's very definition is is "discrimination based upon race." It doesn't specify certain colors on the color wheel.

    People need to get over color. There are a lot of bigger issues in our world today. We need to all remember what is important. We are AMERICANS and our country is in trouble. We must come together to save her.

  • Yes, I'm sure it happens. But here's a news flash - racism doesn't just come in one flavor there are several different ones to please the masses who choose to use race as a tool to discriminate against another group of people. This has been going on for hundreds, heck perhaps thousands of years. Although sad, it's not new; perhaps this version is new to you but not to the world at large.

  • that's not backwards racism. that's racism, just like any other. but i get what you mean. that's terrible, but people like that need to learn on their own of how to be more tolerant & their conspiracy theory of being against them is false.

  • Every race is capable of extreme racism, it's their choice, there is nothing we can do to change the way people are...

  • Hey, anybody can create a club and make the membership strict and based on anything... sex, race, religion...etc. As long as it's a private club, they pretty much can do whatever they want. Discrimination comes in all forms, and unfortunately it still happens all too often. What bothers me is that there is a double standard it seems when it comes the what has been known as "reverse racism." It's awful for the white majority to discriminate against minority racial groups, but when the minority calls out the white majority and tries to eliminate their rights, it's okay. After all, we deserve it right? Because I certainly had flocks of slaves of all colors.... except white. We're above that. Such bull puckey.
