    No, it's not. Discrimination is when one person or group is selected over another for one reason or another. For example, I could discriminate against you and not ever acknowledge your responses because I might discriminate against anyone who includes "dale" in their user name. Racial discrimination is when the criteria for selection is race.

    It has nothing to do with society, even though society can support or reinforce discrimination. Racial discrimination can be practiced by anyone and anyone can be the victim of it. Trying to claim otherwise is rather silly.

    I voted no because it is insignificant. Whites are occasionally targeted for crime in some neighborhoods and get insulted now and then, but that is about all that happens. On the other hand some minorities are targeted by the police, face discrimination in the justice system and employment and are frequently portrayed as dangerous undesirables in the media. In addition past discrimination has left many minorities financially disadvantaged. The funding formula for schools, which are mostly based on local property taxes, is set up (perhaps unintentionally) so that minorities attend schools that are seriously underfunded compared to schools that are mostly white.

    To summarize, some minorities face a lot more systematic and institutional racism than whites. The amount of discrimination against whites due to affirmative action is actually miniscule.

    Insignificant is not non-existent so you should have voted yes.

    I've spent a lot of time in the local version. I'm not saying it is rampant; it isn't. Most gents and ladies of Da Hood are totally cool with me as soon as they see I am friendly.

    However, you will run into it now and then, particularly in certain specific apt complexes locally.

This is commonly seen in the use of the phrase "the race card" typically applied to nearly every claim of racism against blacks. I will admit many if not most of those claims are bogus but the "race card" labeling strategy is generally used in nearly every single claim of racism when some of them are legit.

    Re: Is there really racism against white people in USA ?

    I have a friend. She once shared with me that she doesn't believe interracial marriages are a good idea. Because of the children. Because of this. Because of that. Then I reminded her that her own husband is Hispanic. You should have seen her face. LOL. In her mind race was black or everything else not black and black was not good in most circumstances.

    She's still a good friend just being privately honest. Nobody got hurt. We laughed about it afterwards. No innocent person got sent to jail (and a lot did prior to DNA testing,) Nobody was unfairly denied a promotion or pay raise but IMHO her views likely represent a significant number of people who don't have a black friend they feel safe enough to be honest with about their true gut level opinion of blacks and likely no other race except blacks.

Because those smashed in the head with a brick retards try to tell people that in order for someone to be racist then their racial group has to be the ones in power. But if we go by the actual definitions racism that can be found in Webster's, Oxford's,American Heritage or any other credible dictionary then yes racism against white people in America exist.Because racism anyone holding the belief that other races are inferior to their race is racist regardless of whose racial group is in power. Anyone enacting policies,mistreating or having aggression towards people of other races based on that belief is a racist regardless of whose racial group is in power.
    "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"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
