Just because white privilege exists neither makes whites immune from experiencing racism nor automatically racists themselves.

To label all whites is racism.

Let me tell you guys about privileges.
White privilege, is very much a thing. Their are other types of privileges as well.
What do you get from white privilege?
It does not mean your life is great, problem-free, living in royalty or w/e. Basically its just not perfect.
It is simply that you won't experience certain things in your life that others would have to experience in their lives.
I have a privilege too. That's called Light Skin Privilege.
What do I get from it?
I'm considered more desireable possibly among all races. I'm considered beautiful. I'm on TV/Movies/Maganizes pretty much any kind of media, more often than people with darker skin. I'm more likely to get a job than a person who is darker skinned than me.
Basically, I will not experience things in my life darker skinned people will experience in their lives.

I know this is a real problem/issue among the black community with colorism & all, but I'm not entirely sure with other ethnic communities.


Yeah basically this.

I wouldn't go as far as calling it stupidity. People just have their own opinions/thoughts.

We are reminded constantly that we are black, Asian, Latino/latina, pretty much all PoC, from the moment they were born.

The only people who bring up my heritage are other people who are minorities. And even then they remark how unusual it is for even the country I was born. White people here don't care, they see you as a human, they treat you the same as everyone else. If I'm only surrounded by the natives here I tend to completly forget that I am in any way different and so do they. I get jugded for it by other immigrants, never by the native whites. Strange how that works.

White people as people (which is why they get so sensitive & uncomfortable if you say 'white people/person'.).
Whites will never experience racism.

They do, all the time. I'm seeing it, I'm hearing it, I'm feeling it for associating with the natives here.
"Dude, you are again with a german chick? Just forget those low bitches, find yourself a real women already!"
I even got mugged for that, luckily I didn't have much money with me and others came to my help.
And what they teach their children at home before they get to school, that Germans are all evil, the children end up disobeying the teachers, leaving school with bad grades or dropping out, being losers who end up with minimum wage jobs and on social secrutity who raise the next generation to hate white people, to hate Germans, to never make it anywhere in their lifes.
Strangely enough those children who don't hate the natives make it very far, I dare to say, just as if they themselves where natives.
Funky enough, here your asinine definition of racisim actually fits, parents teach their children to hate Germans, children never make it anywhere, like a system to keep themselves down, it repeats itself, over and over and over again.

Or understand it.

Pure projection on your part, because YOU lack empathy does not mean others do too, all you have to do is to present it in a rational manner and others will understand. Before you ask, no empathy ain't food.

And where ever you are from, I doubt it's that much worse than here in Germany.

On second thought, good night.

Think they're pushing for minority vs majority thing being impossible (though you have revolts and uprising, not sure were they fall under lol).

Only thing is, the concerned parties are both pawns

I disagree. You don't need to be part of the oppressed group to understand how damaging racism is.


Understanding something from hearing about it and understanding from experience are two very different things though, and i think that is what they are talking about...

It's stupidity when someone makes a remark saying "whites don't experience racism" or similar. That isn't an opinion. That's just stupidity. Or at the very least a sad attempt at trolling/baiting.

That was mostly directed at Romani jewish people tbh, There were also a fair amount of POC that were killed as well as they didn't fit into the Arian standard... And if i remember correctly most true romani people aren't actually considered white anyway

That I can certainly agree on.

As some others have stated though, racism is just racism. There's no reverse racism. Even if there was, both would be just as bad. It makes no difference who is saying what and to whom.

Topics like this should never be discussed. It stirs up everything...

This... is just...



You should try to read that out loud and listen to yourself. It's almost as bad as listening to this person explain it: https://youtu.be/0NTLkuYEXYc No wonder she disabled comments.

I'm still trying to grasp the reality that some people think this way. It almost makes me laugh. "Systematic oppression" and "socially reinforced" blah blah... Telling a white person they cannot claim "reverse racism" and institutions offering help and opportunities strictly to minorities IS systematic oppression based on the socially reinforced idea that white people are so "privileged." I honestly thought that is common sense.

The minute you undermine or devalue the pain or problems that any party, whoever it is, has to endure, your words hold no value. Everyone and anyone can experience racism, we are all human and we are all targets for hatred for any number of reasons, racism is no different. Anyone can be a victim, stop victim blaming white people for being white.

You keep confusing racism with prejudice.
Racism is more than that. Than discriminating someone for their race/skin color. There is systematic oppression to it as well.
You know this race system was created just about 500 years ago by Europeans/Your ancestors? They created it so they can come out on top, and benefit them. So why would they create a system that will backfire & not benefit them like they wanted?

What does this have to do with Anime and Manga???????? Why are you trying to start a fight with people who just want to get along and enjoy a common hobby If you like Anime and Manga your cool in my book, and I really don't give a shit what color you are or what sex you are or religion.

That's why its in the general discussion threads.
