I suspect this subject has been well discussed and covered on this fourm before I became a member but I will ask because I wasn't around to witness the discussion.
About 10-15 years ago, there was a claim that Black people cannot be racist because racism requires power and blacks don't have enough power in this country to be racist. The definition of racism is :
1.a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
2.a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
3.hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.
Nowhere in the definition does it say anything about power so I've always wondered who came up with this idea and how & why did they come to this conclusion?
