    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.
    You wouldn't feel that way if you had gone to Hawaii's public schools as a Caucasian. In that state, there's massive racism against whites. There's both institutional racism and personal racism.

    I went to a black school as a white, and while not a population favorite, I wasn't descriminated against at the school.

    That's wonderful. I commend the people you went to school with. It wasn't like that in Hawaii. Not at all.

    What makes this sort of racism even worse is that so many of the grandstanding hypocrites who are quick to decry racism in one direction will deny it and try to delegitimize it when the other.

    Exactly. What's been so frustrating when I've told of racism in Hawaii, I often get reactions like, "Oh boo-hoo. It must have been so tough living in Hawaii," as if beautiful beaches and sunshine somehow make up for racism.

    On the plus side, it did make me more sympathetic to others who've experienced racism.

    Yeah, no doubt. Kids are mean to one another on just about every possible basis. But still, in society as a whole, the harm done by anti-white racism is a tiny fraction of the harm done by anti-black or anti-hispanic racism. They are different orders of magnitude.
    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.

    In other words, it's only racism when you're winning. Yeah, I don't buy that either.

    Agian, depends on definition of the word. Some define it exactly that way, that you have to have the power to inflict that prejudice onto someone. If we don't make distinctiosn, than more than a few words mean exactly the same thing when we only need one word. But but let me ask you this. Is it the same thing to be prejudice against someone but unable do do anythign about, and to be be prejudice and have not only the power to do something, but an entire society to back that prejudice? Are they the same thing. If they are, one word will do. If they are not, different words make sense.
