White peoples’ definition of racism is hurt feelings, instead of what it actually is, and that’s systematic destruction of an ethnic group. Understand that, and then you’ll understand why racism doesn’t “go both ways”.
Well no actually, this statement is racist in itself. racism is treating someone differently for the sole reason of your personal assumptions and opinions of their ethnic background. the backstory between the two races is entirely irrelevant. Racism can “go both ways” just as it can go every which way, since there are thousands of different cultures whom have all kinds of racial tension for various reasons. A white person being treated differently is just as racist as a black person being treated differently. This attitude that our generation of white people have personally wronged all black people is highly damaging. Unless someone has personally done something detrimental to you, regardless of their ethnic background or the history thereof, they do not deserve to be discriminated against.
