    The difference between Mexico and US/Canada is that the vast majority of Mexicans are mestizo - meaning a mix of Spanish and native blood. Whereas in the United States, the vast majority of the population are the descendants of European immigrants who displaced the natives and eventually sequestered them in reservations. So the European heritage/identity in Mexico isn't as strong as it is in Canada and the US.
    As an individual and distinct identity, correct, but the heritage and history is still there nonetheless.

    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

He seemed to equate Mexico as a Native American tribe that had been abused by the white man (Americans). Do I have my history wrong? I thought Mexico was a North American country with European roots (in Spain) just like the United States has roots in England and Canada has roots in England and France. 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.
    The guy you're talking about sounds more anti Semitic than anti white, but sure, racism crosses all ethnicities. It is a universal human failing, one that diminishes with experience and education, but still exists.

    It probably started with my tribe friends, all other tribes enemies.

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

    Some sociologists have defined racism as a system of group privilege.
    I've heard arguments that claim racism is inherently institutional and that it's only true racism if one group is in power and using that power to subjugate another race. I don't buy that. I think racism is simply prejudice against another person or persons based on race. The power-based definition of racism has problems. Most of us can agree that Confederate President Jefferson Davis was extremely racist against blacks. His government, of course, had the power to subjugate them. So under the power definition, Davis was racist while President. However, after the war when he was in prison, then by definition he's no longer racist because he's no longer in a position of power. This is even though he holds the same attitudes.

    What nonsense. A person who regards another race as inferior is a racist regardless of whether he holds any power to subjugate anyone or to uphold a position of group privilege.

    yep, Sambo's was a good place to have breakfast. No one seemed to think about how it got its name. Remember this book?



    Interesting aside: The character in the restaurant ad appears Indian, while the book is about an African, but illustrates with an Asian tiger.

    serious denial here. Those two asses are anti white racists. I am suspicious of blacks who got into the most elite schools with board scores far lower than thousands of rejected white applicants. I am not suspicious of blacks at state schools where the entrance requirements are far lower. I was not suspicious of All-American black athletes at Yale, preferences to athletes is not based on racial discrimination.

    so your point is that we who oppose affirmative actin have a better a better understanding of black racism towards whites? I would agree

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

    Well, one can make an argument that racism is a broad system of the oppression of a race, in which case in the US at present there is no anti-white racism.

    But in the smaller sense of individuals treating one another poorly because of their race, sure, there can be anti-white racism. But, IMO, the amount of fixation on anti-white racism we see in this country is totally out of proportion with the severity of the problem. In the US if a white person and a black or hispanic person apply for the same job with the same resume, the white person is 2.4 times more likely to get an interview. The balance overwhelmingly favors whites and disadvantages blacks and hispanics. So, focusing on anti-white racism is kind of silly. It's sort of like obsessing about fixing a leaky faucet on the Titanic while it's sinking. Sure, any leakage of water into the Titanic is a bad thing and we should ideally fight against all leaks, but when you have a giant gash in the side from an iceberg, that needs to be your focus.
    Total tax rates- People living in poverty: 16.2%. The median American: 27%. Working people who make over $140k/year: 31%. The top 1%: 30%. Super rich investors: around 15%. Help the democrats retake the house.
