Minorities cannot be racist. I’ll say it louder for the people in the back who did not hear me—minorities cannot be racist.

Racism is the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races. That definition was not found on Tumblr or Buzzfeed, but good ole Merriam-Webster.

The system of racism begins with a race designating itself as superior to another. To carry out acts of racism, a race must have power and privilege. There has never been a time in American history when a race other than white has had power and privilege over another—especially in the case of African-Americans.

Now this is not to say that minorities cannot be prejudiced or practice discriminatory behaviors because they definitely can and have done so. Bigotry, the stubborn intolerance of any race, creed, belief or opinion different from one’s own, can be practiced by any race. As a part of a community that has experienced tremendous amounts of bigotry and racism to this day, it is important that we as African-Americans direct our anger and hurt at the institution of racism and not people.

People are not born with prejudice or racism. Harmful and hateful ideologies such as, “All black people lie, steal and kill,” have to be taught. I know it hurts when you see yet another act of police brutality against someone who looks like you.

I know how it feels to realize that our race makes up 38 percent of arrests for violent crimes even though we are only 12 percent of the population.

I know exactly how it feels to be pulled over just because you are black. African-Americans made up 42 percent of stops on the New Jersey turnpike, yet others claim we are being whiny when we bring up past and current discrimination.

I know how it feels to proclaim that “black lives matter” and have someone have the audacity to claim that “all lives matter,” as though I was implying they did not. I know it seems like we are at the bottom of the barrel or that we are no more important than the gum on a shoe, but that is not the case.

We are important. There are those out there raised on racist ideologies and beliefs that will try to put us down and tell us that our issues and our voices are not important. And they are 50 shades of wrong.

We must remember when faced with adversity that institutional racism is very much alive, but that does not mean that it cannot be overcome. We must remember not to let hate seep into our souls and corrupt us. We must be strong, and we must love.

How would it look for us to take on the characteristics—the hate—of our oppressors? Although we may not have the power or privilege to be racist, we do have the power to stand up for what is right.

Now it’s time to put that left fist up and get in formation.

We had a Black, Muslim President for 8 years. He only made things worse in regards to race relations.

Minorities also cannot be charged with crimes because they are victims of society.

The term racist is laughable nowadays.  No one cares.  An over used term by blacks and liberal idiots.

Racism is defined by a belief in your first paragraph. You don't need to first establish some form of dominance or physical superiority. The Nazis never established world domination, does that mean they aren't racist?

Racism also doesn't have to imply something derogatory. The statement "black men are more susceptible to prostate cancer" is racism by your definition but most sane people wouldn't take that offensively.

Racism means disliking, hating or discriminating against someone else or a group based on their skin colour or race.

Any person or group of any race can be racist.

Also hating or discriminating because of a religion is racism, or what country they are from

Why is it that such poorly written and logically fallacious articles even see the light of day in our times? It is so internally inconsistent it is nearly physically painful to me.

I saw that. The author seems to think it has something to do with profiling rather than the simple fact that the crimes are being committed by black folks at a higher rate than their oppressors.

Have you not noticed this? That is EXACTLY what racism is these days.

The thinking goes like this:

"I am in a negative position compared to the majority. So the ones in a better position oppresses me. Because my own actions are never wrong, it's someone else who is at fault. My oppressors.

And the reason why my negative postion seems to be shared in a certain ethnic (or economical/social) group must be because the oppressors are RACIST because we cannot be collectively worse than another group, impossible scenario"

If you turn it around you see it clearly for what it is. Victimization as means to further yourself.

It's amazing how the media is so bias and accepting of racism towards whites nowadays.
Every time something like this happens just flip the races to see the absurdity...

Like that old white Trump supporter being beaten up by those young black guys with the black women yelling "beat him he voted Trump!" hardly a word from the mainstream media...

Jut imagine if it was a bunch of white guys beating a old black man with a white women yelling "beat him!"

FFS you'd see it non stop all over the news 24/7.

There has never been a time in American history when a race other than white has had power and privilege over another—especially in the case of African-Americans.

They have all this "afirmative action" system elaborated to compensate their supposed social infirmity.

Whites should always explain why the ethnical composition of their company does not exacty reflect the ethnical composition of the entire society.

Blacks can ethnically protect their creations, their arts from non-black people (especially whites).

This is the same thing in Europe and Israel, where minorities (always blacks, arabs, latinos, muslims) are not forced to follow the same moral standards of the majoriy, in compensation of the terrible feeling of being a poor helpless group.
That's why they can shit on whites, burn national flags, reproach to whites of being too present in one domain but cry when a white want to enter the rap game etc...
