Racism VS "Reverse" Racism
First of all, I hate the term "reverse" racism. Racism is racism, there's no "reverse" to it.

That being said, there has been a bunch of threads over race issues lately and this one is more a matter of curiosity for me.

I'm not going to use any politically correct terms, I'm just saying "black" and "white."

Black people here claim that white people are racist. I'm not going to pretend like that's not true, but my question is: how many of you have personally had a physical confrontation with a white person who treated you openly bad to your face because of your race.

To clarify; how many of them have made it CLEAR that it was over your race and not over another issue. That you knew without a doubt, because it was either SAID or because they used a derogatory name, and not because you just assumed it was about your race.

The reason I'm asking: I have NEVER been openly mean to someone because of their race, neither has anyone I know while I was around. However, I have MANY examples of being treated poorly by black people because I am white, where they have SAID it was because I am white. This isn't an every day occurrence, so I don't want to skewer any perceptions, but I have at least a dozen examples of it happening to me.

So....Thoughts? Examples?

Re: Racism VS "Reverse" Racism
I went to a high school for 2 yrs that was mostly hispanic.
I was one of about 3 total white people at the school. I am pretty sure at least once a day or every other day, there were people who looked down on me and tried to make me feel inferior because Of my skin color. Now i will end by saying the majority of hispanics are not that way. Since I lived there, some of the best friends I ever had and still am friends with now are hispanic. But there were those that on a regular basis were racist towards me.

Well said.

Any modification in behavior, constructive or destructive, proactive or reactive, because of the race of one of the parties, is racism.

Re: Racism VS "Reverse" Racism
It happened a lot more when I was in highschool, I went to one that had a large hispanic and black population. Now that I'm older, most of the "reverse" racism has happened to me by ADULTS.

Re: Racism VS "Reverse" Racism
I've never had any trouble with any race. I have the ability to make people laugh pretty easily (naturally funny person) so I can get out almost any situation by being funny. Maybe I'm lucky.

Perhaps. I've been in situations where I hadn't even talked yet. For example, I was walking on the street when a women started screaming at me to go F* myself and I should die and she was going to hit me with her car because I was a white bitch. wtf

Re: Racism VS "Reverse" Racism
Maybe you have learned to treat your second rang citizens/humans in such a way you don't need to tell them they are highly inferior, but that still is not a nice thing to do.

And talking shit behinds peoples backs, even if you consider them on the same or lower level than pigs, is also not really nice.

But in the end, why complain? If you don't like blacks or any other non white, isn't it normal they would be mad about it. It means the world is still working normal, you should be happy about that.

What on Earth are you babbling about?

I'm asking for examples from regular users of whites treating blacks badly to their face. I have plenty of examples of the opposite and I wanted to know their side.
