Stop acting like anyone can be Racist when only one groups’ Racism was backed up by Jim Crow, the 1 Drop Rule, forced illiteracy, legal rape, forced assimilation, the kidnapping of children, the genocide of languages, not being able to enter thru front doors or get service at White establishments etc. A Blk person/PoC calling WP a honky is possibly prejudice, but prejudice isn’t Racism. Anti Semitism≠Any religious hate, Transphobia≠Any gender based hate, Racism≠Any racially based hate.
@denikombucha there's a certain point I think when any rational white person must admit that they have probably never met a non-white person (& same goes for other dominant gender/sexuality/ability/&c groups) who is even acting in a way that's prejudiced against them–what dominant group members experience is *postjudice*. The views of dominant groups are broadcast constantly, everywhere, their actions routinely betray their contempt. The evidence is already in, there's ample grounds to judge.
@Shamar have you ever heard about why the Burundiagn genocides occured? Ethnic division & hatred between Hutu & Tutsi was purposefully designed & formented through legal, economic & propaganda means by brutal Belgian rulers to create a stratified society they could easily divide & rule. They then abandoned the society they had stolen from & poisoned. 20th c racism happens almost exclusively because of whiteness, the hugely influenial colonial political ideology that invented scientific racism.
It's a very intricated chapter of our history whose dots joins Mafia and Allied invasion of Sicily, the death of #Falcone and #Borsellino, the raise of Berlusconi and it still have deep consequences on all level of our #Politics, culture and ethics.
Whatever the intentions of the protagonists (whether they were afraid of URSS, just greed for power or both) they sold our collective soul for centuries.
