Has anyone ever experienced this? Have you ever met a White person (or a person of any race) in real life (or online) who claimed, "Racism is dead" or at least "Is no longer a problem"; but when asked why there is racial inequality, they delve off into negative rhetoric about Minoritie and why they are behind?
Yup. All the time.
quote:Think about it, if there is no systematic racism, then the only reason anyone must be behind is because of an inherent inferiority since there is no oppression. I've even met some racism-deniers that claim there are so many poor Whites because those Whites are "just lazy" or "unintelligent".
Anyone else see how denial of racism is just a thinly-veiled attempt to perpetuate it?
Racism is such a dirty word, and unlike the past, it is taboo to be openly racist, so racist must pretend that they are not racist and that racism does not exist.
