Open a dictionary peeps, it says a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another. nowhere does it say only white people. honest white people know full well black peeps can be racist, just like some whites.
Slavery happened, it's parts of this nations history, not a good thing but get over it already. my ancestors weren't in this country before 1918 so we're not responsible anyway. and anyway would black people rather have been left in Africa? I think not

You know African Americans should read their own history. Powerful Kings in Africa sold them because they were not equal. Now city is Benin. During the middle passage era when Africans were selling slaves to the European countries for weapons because of all the in fighting going between tribes. So wake up and read your history. Racism has been going on for centuries. The Romans and Greeks had slaves so the black people of today and the ancestors are not exclusive when it comes to slavery.

There are those like Ben Carson who fail to realize that the continual Systemic Racism that exist today stems from America's and the West origin of Eugenics beliefs which also gave rise to Hitler's Aryan nation practices.

The blacks are the most racist people in the USA. I'd say to prove me wrong but I know that you can't.

In my latest video, "White People Did Evil. || The Zero sum of Historical Competition" I explore the topic of racism from a spiritual perspective. I'd be interested to see feedback and if you like to consider subscribing… do it. Seriously, it takes like 7hrs to edit 5mins!

Best,

I blame these racist attitudes by blacks on the liberals who use them to divide and conquer.

Imagine how we feel as Muslims in Western countries, just because some of them want the oil an what not an they have Media and other powerful people backing them.And they have powerful tools like video editing and whatnot so they can make an say whatever they want. An the public will believe 90% of the people will be washed by media. It’s quite embarrassing that one can get pride over landed just because they were there before another,They forget that all of us are colonising in this world so we all are immigrants.
