All white people are racist

My friend, who's dad is black and mom is white, says this all the time. She says that all white people are racist because they benefit from discrimination and that it's impossible for other races to be racist against white people because they can't benefit from it.

Thoughts?

Quoting karisma22:

I disagree.  Not all white people are racist.  

Other races can and are racist against whites as well as other races.


But when they are, they are not deemed to be racist

Well she sounds like a real winner. Clearly someone hit her too hard in the head and she lost her logic :)

There's a difference between systemic oppression (ie. the fact that the system tends to skew more positively for white males historically speaking) and racism/personal prejudices, IMO.  By that logic, I'm sexist because I benefited from my province's maternity leave program, which isn't available to dads.

 she is probably talking about institutional racism opposed to the every day garden variety...ya know the KKK or the man who hunts down and systematically tortures a person because theyre white...then hangs them up for the whole community to come visit and share.  Oh wait......
