Racism Explained



Sometimes when black people bring up the topic of racism. Occasionally white people will flip the switch and call black people racist. I am not sure how black people can be considered racist when all they have ever faced is racism. Calling them racist is like blaming a crime victim for being victimized. According to www.dictionary.com a racist is defined as “a person who believes in racism, the doctrine that one’s own racial group is superior or that a particular racial group is inferior to others.” Based on this definition I suppose black people can appear to be racist, especially when he or she is enlightened or as some would say, “awake.” In the Merriam-Webster dictionary, racism is defined as, “Poor treatment of or violence against people because of their race.” Merriam-Webster’s definition makes sense when you take into consideration the 400 years of wielding physical, psychological, and economic power over black people. Dr. Joy Degruy Leary said, “It is impossible for black people to be racist because they do not hold any power and do not control anything.” Oftentimes we have to hear an explanation from one of our own before we can understand the meaning of racism.
