    A better question would be

    Which is worse for American society as a whole

    White racism towards blacks or Black racism towards whites
    I would say they are equally bad. Allowing racism from one group, because, "it's not as bad", while condemning abnother group is bull****. The doublestandards within our society that some people seem to agree with are worse than racism could ever be.

    Black people are more likely to be racist toward whites because it's more accepted and sometimes even encouraged by mainstream culture.

    That is crap! Our culture in general is one that is that the rich are suppose to be white and that those of any other skin color are to be held down, profiled, passed over for jobs, denied jobs, not paid as much, etc.

    How are 'peoples of colors' being held down by white people? And, what makes you think that?

    Being turned down for jobs due to race, not making the same as white co-workers (women get this too), being treated unfairly via our justice system. Those are just a few things.

    I can tell you right now from living in the south white people are more racist than minorities. When I lived in Oregon we never dared to say the N word. Down here it is common vocabulary as long as a black man is not present.

Do not confuse racism and social status.

    It seems whenever I see some story involving racial slurs or white attacking blacks or blacks attacking whites, there's always a simple pattern. If it's a white person insulting blacks or beating up blacks, its always "hate speech" or "hate crime" or "racial attack." When it's blacks or minorities attacking whites its, "accused of racial remarks" or "possible hate crime" or "possible racial attack".

    Question one: Does the media cut minorities more slack on racial issues?
    Question two: Are whites more racist than minorities?
    Yes, they cut minorities more slack on racial issues.

    But who does it more?
    I don't know - some minorities I've known have been more open about it but that doesn't mean that whites weren't racist - it just meant that, if they were, they kept it to theirselves.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
