    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.
    Lame attempt at apologism and justification.

    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    And yet you didn't offer any counterarguments.

    If you discriminate against people that are white then you are racists. Black Panther organization is an example. Racism isn't only for minorities...it covers all races.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    Yes anti-white racism occurs.Apparently some retard voted no in the poll.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Of course there is. Mexico is a different country with a different language and culture.

    With regard to Luna's question, what I meant specifically is that the vast majority of Americans and Canadians view their culture as descendant from European tradition. That identity is not as strong as with the vast majority of Mexicans, although it depends on what aspect of Mexican culture we're talking about (Catholic Church would be one exception).

    If you ignore the first sentence, he's pretty much on point.

    How? I'm just asking. Did you have to use separate facilities? Denied a job? Denied housing or lodging? Denied service?

    This is the point I tried to make earlier. IS there a difference between prejudice against a race and racism?
