It is important to keep power differentials in mind when talking about racism and other bigotry. | ANYONE CAN BE RACIST. AND IT'S ALWAYS WRONG. BUT IT'S WORSE WHEN DIRECTED TOWARD MINORITIES AND THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN HISTORICALLY DISENFRANCH | image tagged in memes,roll safe think about it,racism,bigotry,no racism,minorities | made w/ Imgflip meme maker

Kyliefan_89, if you had just allowed that first sentence to be your message then your post would have merit. However, you turned your post into something racial with that second sentence. Shame on you!

Sorry, but you cannot separate institutional power differentials from an overall analysis into racism.

Antithesis, This is true, yet I find that this is the racist's way of perpetuating racism, which is so terribly wrong. There is no "More Wrong" version of racism. Wrong is wrong. Period.

A person doing something they shouldn't do is wrong. A government doing something they shouldn't do is an injustice. And I don't think you understand that.

Oh, I understand that completely. However, regardless of the situation, there is no such a thing as "More Wrong." Racism is wrong. Reverse discrimination is wrong. Affirmative action is wrong. The pendulum swings both ways, my friend. Perhaps it is you who do not understand.

Do you know what I love about the phrase "reverse discrimination"? It simultaneously acknowledges that there's a systemic power differential that most people have identified as a major problem and dismisses it at the same time. You're trying to have your cake and eat it too.

I'm not your friend. And when an individual action compounds with a systemic injustice, then yes, the individual action it is worse. You have the capacity to understand that and you're choosing not to do so.

Your assessment of reverse discrimination is askew. No one dismisses reverse discrimination. If nothing else, more attention is drawn to it as it is yet another in a long list of things wrong in society. Not a "have your cake and eating it too" scenario, but a warning that the cake is prune-based and likely to give you the shits, which you obviously do not heed the warning. Why am I not your friend? Can we not simply agree to disagree? Must we hate each other because our perception on this matter is different? I am a white male married to a black female. I have raised my four children to not be racist in any manner whatsoever, yet they see racism every day from both whites and blacks. I am firmly embedded in what this country has done and what people continue to do. The perpetuation of racism is our biggest downfall. Please, my friend, do not perpetuate racism by having such close-minded views. Wake up.

No! I will not agree to disagree. Your entire premise is purposed to replace the only solutions our society has to economic injustice with doing nothing. That is not ok. That is not a matter of opinion. That is your goal. And doing nothing is not acceptable.

You speak of my goals as if you know me. Spoiler Alert: You do not. You seem so intent on hating me that you easily form prejudiced opinions about me. I have tried to reason with you, but to no avail. For you to believe you can do what I do is not only pompous and arrogant, it's just plain stupid. Give your hatemongering a rest. No one wants to hear your racist diatribe anymore.

You speak as though using musty talking points that have long since been discredited doesn't reveal anything about your character.

Well, yeah. Discussions of racism are liable to turn racial. The second sentence is important.

Your claim is that all racism is equally wrong. My claim is it's all bad, but racism directed against certain groups is worse.

Who can have the greater impact is not the issue in the meme. It is that anyone can be racist, which is true.

That's too convoluted a truth for these guys. Didn't you read the meme? If the truth is convoluted, it doesn't count.

Whites are in a better position to HELP minorities. Emancipation Proclamation comes to mind.
