    You're not doing this right. You're supposed to play into the victim complex that they've worked so hard to build up.

    But it possible for a white man or woman to get their feelings hurt if someone tells them they don't like them because they are white in which case that would be racism as well - but it would be powerless. Hearing that might ruffle their feathers. Make a sensitive fella' cry.

    But seeing that Caucasians currently far outnumber every other race - I doubt it will effect them that much.

    If white Americans become the minority in this country racism towards them could become systemic. So it has potential for becoming an issue for them.
    This points to the real core of how racism works, which is simply that the minority demographic is going to get the business end of discrimination, sadly. Many white people are perfectly aware of this, which is why they lament being outnumbered by minorities in the future, which is in fact the trend.

    Human beings have an innate desire to divide the world into me/them and us/them scenarios. When behavior is motivated simply on the grounds of another person's "them"-ness arising from membership in a certain racial group, that is racism. Any group, or individual, can be guilty of racism against any other group, or individual.

    I am certain that among the 300mil+ of us there's is at least a single individual who holds racist views against white people.
    I may be wrong.

    We have many ways of thinking about the world which are shortcuts of sorts.

    For a number of things this sort of non-rational assessment makes a lot of sense--it takes much less energy and time to reach snap conclusions than to
    discover and sort through data.
    I suspect that this sort of thinking served our ancestors quite well.

    rational ignorance of a sort
    I may be wrong.
