I laugh my azz off when people, especially on the conservafool side of the political spectrum fling the facts free charge at me that 'I'm a racist' or I'm 'playing the race card' for calling out on a regular basis the racism that permeates American society.
Um,.no. And saying that BS to me clearly exposes you as either completely and utterly ignorant about these issues because you watch too much Fox Noise or you're wallowing in some serious vanillacentric privilege.
For those of you who didn't go to college or were asleep in Sociology 101 when this discussion was going on, Racism =
prejudice infused with political, economic, judicial, police, military
and social power in which a dominant racial group uses those levers of societal power to retard, impede or roll back the societal progress of a minority group.
It is not what butthurt white conservafools who fit that
Sociology 101 definition of Racism (and gleefully practice it) spit back at people who call them on their crap.
And butthurt white peeps, if you don't want to be called a racist, then stop acting in the racist ways or flapping your gums in ways that leave no doubt in the minds of non-white people and our allies that you most certainly are.
The reality in American society is the only people in it who have that kind of power to be racist are white people. You are the majority population (at least until 2040) in all but five states and you have gleefully in many cases let you prejudices run rampant to fit the Sociology 101 racism description.
There is no such thing as 'reverse racism' because non-white people don't have that kind of power. For non-white people tho be racist it would require American society to be an equal and level playing field, and we ain't even close to wielding that kind of power yet.
Non white people can be bigoted and prejudiced. But we don't exist with the kind of power to make white lives a living hell as has been done unto us for the last four centuries in North America and elsewhere in the world.
