    Are non-white people incapable of demonstrating racist behaviour or racism?

    No, non-whites are not incapable of demonstrating racist behavior or racism. My question to you: Why would they be?
    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

      Of course they are more than capable of being racist, demonstrating racist behavior and racism. I've experienced more virulent racism towards me and my family from black people than I have from white people.

        There does often seem to be a notion that racism is all on the part of the [sarcasm intended "wicked white man towards the non white man"]. Indeed a remark made here appeared to reinforce that notion, suggesting that a non-white person would not be susceptible to racism.

          Not according to what is taught in some university courses, where it is considered impossible for members of an non-privileged group to be racist. (Somehow, they manage to not see South Africa though.) Again, according to those same universities, to question their story is just proof of white supremacist racism. CRT at its finest.

              According to many on the left only whites can be racist. Care to disagree?

                As old Joe keeps telling everyone, some non-white groups aren't very smart. Not like everyone else.

                You know... not the same as regular people.

                  Depends on who you talk to.

                  Some think that racism requires one race to have power over the other. Those people label the exact same actions going in the "other direction" is "merely prejudice"

                    I think one of the biggest problems with racism in our country is the liberal white elite who don't even know (or care) that they're implying that blacks are inferior because blacks can't succeed without the help of whitey.

                      What do you expect from people who measure compassion by how much they can take from others.

                              Which is why they piss off Snopes and the New York Times so much. Their satire is too spot on.
