    You're statement says it all.

    He's half white! He was raised in white culture. He's a liberal elitist. Most of his friends are white.

    Is there something wrong with being half white?

    No. What makes you think he is? I often call myself an Arab even though I am half British because I was raised in a household wherein Arabic culture was embraced. It's just the part of me with which I identify most strongly.

    I'll elaborate on my comment.

    Here is the thing, anyone that is not noticeably white is subject to racism of not being white from people.

    My future prediction though is one of what could be called reverse-racism, and that is people discriminating against people that are white and not a mixture.

    That is what I think is the possibility in the future. Maybe I am a pessimist, but that is what I think. In the future being white will be almost a crime.

    It's important to make a distinction between "people" and "some people." I've been called everything from a "dirty mexican" to a "Jew" to a "sand nigger." These people would be ignorant assholes no matter in what "race" they claim to belong.

    There's no such thing as "reverse racism." Racism is racism.

    I foresee a future where we get past our petty differences and see each other as the family we are. We can make it happen. I'm an optimist.

    .
    It is a different era that has reverse racism. When I lived in a black neighborhood in Brooklyn I was targeted because I'm as white as pure driven snow. The reason for this racism was because of the previous racism towards blacks. I have even been beaten up in a race riot. Al Sharpton is a prime example of a reverse racist.

    I'll agree with you on the "reverse racism" part however, whenever there is a lawsuit dealing with a white person being discriminated against a non-white person it is lableed "reverse racism" that is why I used the term. I agree with you however that racism is racism.

    However to your future, I would like to see the end result that way, but I think it will still happen eventually that being white will be considered a minority and racism against whites will happen. At least for a time.

    It does not matter why someone is racist, they're still a racist. Al Sharpton may or may not be a racist, but his bellicose rhetoric encourages racism and racial violence.

    racism: a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race

    It CAN happen though. We decide our fate. It's up to us. MLK's dream has still largely not reached fruition. Now we voluntarily segregate ourselves based on physical characteristics. It's ridiculous.
