    No, you didn't. YOu said many forms, but institutional wasn't the issue. I have no explanation as to why or which definition the thread is suppose to eb considering and why. cmakaioz suggests a why, and I tend to think he may be on to something, but look for greater clarity.

    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.

    Re: Is there such a thing as anti-white racism?

    On a separate note, running polls (traditionally used for assessing opinion) over EMPIRICAL questions (matters of fact) annoys the hell out of me. Even if all respondents chose "no" as an answer to this thread poll, the fact would remain that of course there's such a thing as anti-white racism. This, again, suggests to me a hidden agenda.
    I've moved on to a better forum (scienceforums.net). Facts matter, and I don't have the time or energy for putting up with the pretense that they don't. PM me if you'd like me to get in touch with you when I'm done developing my own forum system, likely towards the end of 2013.

    Agreed. The question suggests an agenda and opens a discussion to what is it we mean by it, IMHO.

    Of course there is anti-white racism in America and around the world. The ability to hate and discriminate is universal across all people.

    a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
    Since you left out most of the definition, I guess the answer is "It's too hard for some people"

    Luna, why do you question whether white people can be targets of racism?

    If black people can then so can white people, imo.

By far the most troubling thing he said was that all blacks should go back to Africa and all whites should go back to Europe. To me that sounds like a racist statement against both black people and white people. Do you agree?

    Btw, I'm white, but I didn't come here from Europe. I was born here. Almost everyone I know who's black was also born here. And I think his history is wrong. Mexico is not a Native American tribe.
    Mexico is a mix of old Native Americans, with a strong dash of Spanish.

    Does racism against whites exist? Of course it does. If one automatically assumes something negative about another person, based strictly on his skin color, and without knowing them personally, it is racism.

    Re: Is there such a thing as anti-white racism?

    Racism is the sum total of expressions and actions which treat "race" as if it were biologically real -- without regard to personal belief of what may actually be true (you don't have to personally believe in "race" mythology's premises in order to ACT as if you do).

    Within that general racism, there is a subset of racism which involves ideologies in which adherents genuinely believe "race" to be biologically real (in other words, lay "race" categories like "black" and "white" and "Asian" etc. are believed by such people to indicate causative differences which both reflect and direct hidden biological mechanisms.

    Within that first subset, there is a further subset of people who rank these reified "races" into hierarchies of ability, moral worth, etc. This subset is the one which -- today -- is generally not controversial to identify as harboring racist views. This is also -- not by accident -- about the limit of most "white" people's conception of racism. Attempts to discuss the broader scope of racism (i.e. the first two levels mentioned, not just the third) all but instantly leads to defensiveness, incoherence, rationalizations, minimizations, outright denial, and diversionary tactics, such that -- with or without specific intent -- the attempted discussion usually ends up denying the realities of people of color and/or dragging discussion off-topic such that making "white" people comfortable with themselves becomes the de facto goal.

    The framing of this thread is an example of exactly this kind of diversionary tactic. Time and energy spent acknowledging/denying the fact that there's such a thing as anti-white racism once again allows white comfort to remain at the center of attempted discussion of racism...while avoiding confrontation with white privilege and (especially) with white supremacy (in the concrete not just ideological sense). In a classic case of reversal and projection, it allows "white" people to play the role and occupy the narrative position of a target when in real life they are overwhelmingly privileged on the axis of "race."

    So again, this leads us to question the motivation for introducing an opinion poll for what is NOT a matter of opinion.

    Probably
    Luna, during our lives we meet all kinds, mostly "go with the flow sheeple", but some smart and some stupid.I am not impressed with the man in question's intelligence...But he is correct about minorities being ill-treated at best and slaughtered at worst...So, unless a man is a saint, racism abounds....in my opinion...
