    It's more about making a distinction. What makes everyday prejudice different than systematic oppression of a race. The two are not equal. So, some tried to make a distinction between the two with the language. If you approach it a s definition issue, the distinction is not that controvesial, let a lone stupid.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Why would distinguishing between racism by the powerless against the powerful and racism by the powerful against the powerless be a stupid notion? They are indeed distinguishable, as I just did that, and they are different as to effects. Two good reasons the notion is not stupid. Do you have any reasons why making the distinction is stupid?

    Equating black racism with the white racism that infected this country for 3 centuries and continues to this day, and which led to the oppression and subjugation of an entire race is stupid beyond belief. It is generally done by whites who are unwilling to recognize what systematic racism has done to black people. Instead, they bleat on about the Congressional Black Caucus and the Black Panthers as though that's the moral equivalent of two centuries of slavery and another of Jim Crow.

    yes, for the most part, except in places like Atlanta and other cities & towns where blacks hold the positions of power, black institutionalized racism in the USA can't exist.

    but simple black racism, CAN and DOES exist.

    •Wants to take over neighborhoods “block by block” so “crackers…or even the developer” would be scared to come into them
    •“We’re taught to send this cracker to the cemetery… so kiss ‘em goodbye”

    I do. Because racISM simply is what it is. You can be a racist without some sort of power position. You can engage in racism all by your little lonesome self. You can be a racist small business owner and institute policies that are racist and by action engage in racism. The only people invested in citing the powerful majority as being the ones capable OF racism or those invested in justifying and excusing their own racist ideals. It simply is what it is, and if you engage in it...you are what you are. Except maybe those that excuse the actions of a minority group of racists...they are something entirely different.

    Luckily, some of us dont have any connection to those pig British ancestors that engaged in the institution of slavery...or...well...for that matter only the scantest connection to African ancestry and their horrid history of slavery and human trafficking (a few centuries? Pikers!). And only marginal connection to the Spaniards...good lord...the attrocities those people have committed over time. And the Germans. Oh...and lets not forget the Asians...some of those douchebags have a REALLY nasty history. Then again...fairly tame when compared to some of the things aboriginal tribes from the Americas did to other native people.

    Scourge yourself with loathing and self hatred for the things generations of people across the planet and throughout time have committed. Shame on you all!

    Maybe you didn't know this, but Asian and black fraternities don't exclude whites. Neither do 'black' universities.

    When a group of blacks or asians or muslims or mexicans meet to discuss their culture -- it's more akin to a support group -- a community within the bigger community. Typically the majority of race related groups on college campuses and in cities are not about "hating" whites. They are about a shared experience--a touchstone, if you will.

    In the example you gave, you are talking about a specific thing -- a hate group. A group that believes whites are better than blacks. A group that believes in the old south, and people of color being inferior. They also believe the bible supports these ideas. You are talking about a group that promotes fear and ignorance. Bigotry.

    You are comparing apples and oranges. Actually, you are comparing dog crap to chocolate cake. Dog crap being the hate group. I find it hard to believe that you are not bright enough to see this.
