i think reverse racism is on its own a racist term.

it's like saying if a white person is hung it's called a "reverse lynching".

people are fucking ridiculous.

I think that it very much is rascist because it's generally only used by white people in public office desperately trying to be politically correct (as if they feel they would be taking the word "racism" away from black people by using it), or by the same backwoods white people that complain about "all those damn mexicans coming to america and stealing our jobs". That's what bothers me about it, racism is not a black and white thing. Pretty much all races hate eachother, hell, some groups of people within races hate eachother (ie. mexicans and puerto ricans).

and not only has racism become to mean believing other races are inferior, it also has become to mean pointing out any differences between races at all. i really feel as though the term racist has become something for insecure people to hide behind and point fingers. It's enraging, because true racism is such a problem, and essentially making the term meaningless is like ignoring that there's a problem.
