    If the racism is based on previous racism it is a reverse racism. Blacks were considered inferior because they were black. Whites are now considered inferior because they thought blacks were inferior not because of their race.

    Judging people based on the actions of their ancestors is not just. You've done nothing to harm black people and therefore I don't buy this "reverse racism" crap. A more ridiculous version of this is the idea that "blacks can't be racist" which is patently disingenuous crap.

    Whites are now considered inferior because they thought blacks were inferior not because of their race.
    How do you know that's why? Can you speak for all black racists?

    I have a problem with this term. I have used it, and have been corrected on it.

    If someone hates or discriminates someone that is of a different race, it isn't reverse racism, it is just place racism.

    I think some people have coined the term "reverse racism" to mean something less.

    Like if a black is a against a white it is coined "reverse racism" like it is something more honorable that a white against a black which is termed "racism".

    All this does not negate the fact that Obama and his campaign used his skin tone to falsely portray him as a member of a specific racial group in order to propel his political campaign to "historic".

    Did Obama really run on his skin color? Can you prove it? Do you really think black people are so stupid that they can be cowtowed by a politician into believing he's black when he's not? Are you trying to tell me that this is not a black man?

    Are you saying that Obama could have run his campaign as him being white?

    The term is just a consolidation of ideas. If there is a better term I would like to hear it. But the two racist whites and racist blacks have a distinct different basis on the whole.

    I think he is trying that he could not have. I could care less if he was black or white. I would have still voted for him.

    Originally we had three races: caucasion, negroid, and Asiatic. The fact that we've managed to concoct all these "races" (mulatto, Arab, Jew (thanks Hitler), Latino, etc.) illustrates just how stupid the very concept of "race" really is.
