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

    Sure there can be racism against white people. It's just not really important since white people have all the money and power and other races aren't in a position to do anything to systematically harm whites. When it comes to the comparison of whites against any other race (in white-dominant countries like the United States) the inverse is very much true. We have all the power, and we can and do use it hurt non-whites. So, our racism is the only racism with practical consequences.

    Nope, I'm arguing the opposite.
    First off, race is not a social construct.
    The way it is used, it terribly incorrect.

    It should rather be said that, "the way the U.S. census defines race is incorrect."

    Says the people making the broad and incorrect statement, that race is a social construct.
    You're taking advantage of people, by using misinformation.

    Clearly, we shouldn't point out the fundamental errors and ignorance of science in such issues...because after all, people don't know the difference.
    No we should point out the difference, we just shouldn't lie to people by saying "race is a social construct" when it isn't.
    They way race is popularly defined, may be wrong, but that doesn't mean race doesn't exist.

    Well not really.
    Calling decedents of sub Saharan Africans and aboriginal Australians, the same race, is wrong.
    They are not.
    Saying that whites and blacks are of different races, is generally true.

    Saying race is a social construct, is much too broad a statement.

    I'm not confirming it, my statement was speculation based on your moronic word choice.... for all I know it came out of a copy of Slanderous Communist Weekly Magazine.

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

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

    What, exactly, does race mean anyway?
    Two organisms are the same species if they can mate and have fertile offspring. All humans, by that definition, are the same species.

    Even taking the most extreme differences in looks, say, sub Saharan African vs. someone from Norway, the differences are rather minor compared to different breeds of dogs or horses.

    It seems to me we're making a lot out of what is really minor differences in physical appearance.

    Which is exactly where the social construction comes into play.

    That's weird, because a few posts ago, you said:

    And now, you're saying that it's an accurate measurement. Why the change?

    Saying race is a social construct, is much too broad a statement.
    Actually, everything I said was accurate. First, whether or not defining race as a social construct is accurate is not a matter of whether or not "people know the difference," it's a matter of whether or not race is socially constructed or not. Second, the definition of race that most people use and that was being used in this thread is a social construct. Therefore, your original comment that referring to race as a social construct is merely "pc, feel good garbage" is one that is much too broad a statement that does not take into account the popular conceptions of race and the conception of race that has been the subject of this threa

    Very well stated; much as I was planning on posting.
    Things are changing in our nation; "we" are still the largest group, but no longer a majority (49.8%).....if this has any meaning at all...
    IMO, it does not;we must replace racism with tolerance and knowledge....and I think we are, ever so slowly...
