    The only racism that so called "progressivism" has ever endorsed or ever will endorse is that of the anti-white variety. The KKK and the Democrats who supported Jim Crow never considered themselves as being on the "right side of history" when blacks were 2nd class citizens, they simply believed that segregation was the only option and that whites who loved blacks could very well destroy segregation if given enough time. They never even entertained the notion to play themselves off as victims to people whom they considered their enemies and try to guilt trip them. They knew their morals weren't all that sound and feared that their children would reject their ideals if they weren't kept in line.

    Any Republican or conservative who honestly believes that Democrats merely switched their racism alliances needs to understand that today's Democrats honestly do believe that their growing anti-white racist slogans and appeasement of all varieties of anti-white groups that control the minds of their various voting blocks is not only completely morally superior to anything Republicans will ever come up with, but also ultimately on "the right side of history" regardless of its moral standing because of demographics. There isn't a single thing that someone can say or do to white people that will receive any sort of sincere condemnation from faithful Democrats that doesn't at least attempt to tie such an event to past displays of white animosity and hate and consequently mitigate it to irrelevance(like when black kids in Chicago beat up the white Trump supporter on election night, or when black kids abused a white kid with autism on social media, which were quickly forgotten because of "racist Trump supporters" all over the country oppressing non-whites in what later turned out to be hoaxes).

    If Republicans don't wake up and realize how pervasive and how institutionalized anti-white racism is and is becoming more so still with each passing moment, they will eventually wake up to realize that the life of a black person in the Jim Crow South was a paradise compared to what awaits us as white people all around the world in just 30 years or so. South Africa isn't an outlier by any stretch of the imagination, it is(as anyone can see from the response of the left in the western world to the situation in South Africa concerning the whites there) the canary in the coal mine. Black people cannot even attempt to compare their experiences of racism to white people any longer, much less claim they are its only victims.

    seems to me that "anti-white racism" became a fad in the 1960s.
    It was an unintended consequence (IMHO) of the writings of
    W. E. B. Du Bois which kinda fell into the hands of the general
    population

    I think animus is being confused with racism. A quick perusal of this message board will reveal an astounding display of open hostility accentuated with insulting and derogatory comments towards black people. That is actual racism (based on the belief of white superiority) while the backlash that whites experience when the blacks they are denigrating refuse to let their ignorant and racist comments go unchallenged for some reason is viewed as "racism" on the part of blacks against whites.

    Every single time any of the legislation or court rulings, policies or procedures are displayed which legally put the rights and concerns of whites above those of blacks, the whining about how long ago that was begins. It does not matter when the lot of you were born, because I was born into a country that was legally segregated. These laws have impacted my life personally. My mom's dad served in the military while it was still segregated and was a Tuskegee airman. Although he is no longer living, she is so she was personally impacted as well as her sisters and all of my aunts and uncles on my dad's side of the family yet both families still prospered.

    Whites in America have had almost 171 years head start as far as legally sanctioned & protected opportunities
    which were simultaneously denied to blacks so if something is presently going on that is preventing the success that is expected of some of the "superior" race, well then maybe the problem has less to do with what black people are doing and more to do with what white people aren't doing.

    The first definition is the most commonly used definition of racism. The second definition is what is mean by the term "institutional racism"
    racism
    [rey-siz-uh m]
    See more synonyms on Thesaurus.com
    noun
    1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human racial groups determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to dominate others or that a particular racial group is inferior to the others.
    2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
    Examples of Institutional Racism by Whites Against Blacks
    NOTE: There are no comparable statutes by Blacks Against Whites)
    1. Excerpt From the State of Texas's Declaration of Secession
      "She [the state of Texas] was received as a commonwealth holding, maintaining and protecting the institution known as negro slavery--the servitude of the African to the white race within her limits--a relation that had existed from the first settlement of her wilderness by the white race, and which her people intended should exist in all future time.
      ....
      We hold as undeniable truths that the governments of the various States, and of the confederacy itself, were established exclusively by the ***white *** race, for themselves and their posterity; that the African race had no agency in their establishment; that they were rightfully held and regarded as an ***inferior*** and dependent race, and in that condition only could their existence in this country be rendered beneficial or tolerable.
      ....
      That in this free government all ***white men*** are and of right ought to be entitled to equal civil and political rights; that the servitude of the African race, as existing in these States, is mutually beneficial to both bond and free, and is abundantly authorized and justified by the experience of mankind, and the revealed will of the Almighty Creator, as recognized by all Christian nations; while the destruction of the existing relations between the two races, as advocated by our sectional enemies, would bring inevitable calamities upon both and desolation upon the fifteen slave-holding states.

    2. Supreme Court Justice Taney in Dred Scot v Sanford
      blacks "had no rights which the white man was bound to respect; and that the negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for his benefit. He was bought and sold and treated as an ordinary article of merchandise and traffic, whenever profit could be made by it."
      Dred Scott case

    There is no anti white racism.

    Whine Merchants: Privilege, Inequality and the Persistent Myth of White Victimhood
    Posted on May 13, 2013 -Tim Wise

    But what about us?

    It’s a question of which white folks seem never to tire when discussing subjects like affirmative action, or other diversity initiatives intended to expand opportunity and access for people of color in higher education and the job market.

    Whenever these matters are broached, the vast majority of us rush to protest: How dare schools or employers consider race in hiring or admissions. They should be colorblind, we insist, merely admitting or hiring the most qualified! And more to the point, we proclaim, targeting folks of color for opportunities, by definition, means discrimination against us. Such efforts make us the victims, even, on some accounts, treating white people “exactly” like blacks were treated under Jim Crow segregation (1).

    So, yes, it remains the case that even when black folks have college degrees they’re nearly twice as likely as comparable whites to be out of work; and Latinos with degrees are about 50 percent more likely than comparable whites to be out of work; and Asian Americans with degrees are about 40 percent more likely than comparable whites to be out of work (2). And yes, even whites who claim to have criminal records are more likely to be hired than equally qualified blacks without records, but still, can anti-white lynchings be far behind?

    And yes, blacks and Latinos combined only represent about 13 percent of students at the most selective colleges and universities — the only ones that actually practice any kind of real affirmative action for admissions — and there are twice as many whites admitted to elite schools with less-than-average qualifications as there are people of color so admitted, but still, can any rational person doubt that whites will soon be limited to mere token representation at the nation’s best educational institutions?

    That such hand-wringing about so-called reverse discrimination reeks of intellectual mendacity should be obvious by now. Despite years of so-called reverse racism, whites remain atop every indicator of social and economic well-being when compared to the African Americans and Latinos who, it is claimed, are displacing us from our perch: employment data, income, net worth; you name it, and we are the ones in better shape without exception.

    Indeed, in some regards the gaps between whites and folks of color have grown in recent years, as with wealth gaps, which have actually tripled since the 1980s, now leaving the typical white family with over 20 times the net worth of the typical black family and 18 times that of the typical Latino family. Even when comparing families of middle-class income and occupational status, whites possess 3-5 times the net worth of middle class blacks, suggesting that even African Americans who have procured good careers and obtained college degrees lag well behind their white counterparts, due in large measure to the inherited disadvantages of past generations, affirmative action efforts notwithstanding.

    This is why, despite affirmative action — which may well be eradicated (at least so far as higher ed is concerned) by the Supreme Court within the month — white racial advantage remains a real and persistent phenomena in American life, and one with which fair-minded persons should still be prepared to grapple.

    To claim that affirmative action not only disproves white privilege, but indeed suggests its opposite — black and brown privilege — as many have argued to me via email exchanges, is to ignore the entire social context within which affirmative action occurs.

    It’s like protesting that sick people are privileged, relative to the healthy, because there are no hospitals for the latter.

    It’s like complaining that the poor are privileged, relative to the well-off, because no one sets up soup kitchens to serve the affluent; nor does Habitat for Humanity ever show up to build mansions for the rich.

    In other words, when whites critique affirmative action, we typically ignore everything that came before such efforts — and which unjustly skewed the historical balance of power and access in our favor — and even that which continues to favor us now, from funding and other advantages in the schools that mostly serve our children, to preferential treatment in the housing market, to ongoing advantages in employment.

    With companies filling up to half of their new jobs by way of recommendations made by pre-existing employees — a practice that benefits those persons connected to others already in the pipeline, who will disproportionately be white — and with informal, typically white-dominated networks providing the keys to the best jobs in the modern economy, and with research indicating that employers are more likely to hire people they’d like to “hang out with,” than those who are necessarily the most qualified (which will tend to replicate race and class homogeneity), and with blacks significantly underrepresented in management positions, even and especially in work settings that include large numbers of blacks, it stands as uniquely craven to complain about how persons of color are receiving unjust head starts in the labor market. That even middle class blacks, relatively protected by their economic and educational status from overt mistreatment, still suffer disparate rates of job dismissal (even when their performance indicators are comparable to those of whites), lower mobility when compared to similar whites, and regular harassment on the job, makes such arguments all the more repugnant.

    And yet, that’s what one can hear, over and again, from the very white Americans who regularly bemoan what they call the “victim” mentality of black folks and other “racial minorities.”

    As in, “If I were just black, I’d have gotten into Harvard!” Or, “If my buddy John had been named Juan, he’d have gotten that construction contract,” which arguments brazenly ignore that whites still far outnumber blacks at places like Harvard and white owned businesses continue to receive over 90 percent of government contracts (3). Oh, and such idiocy also, and conveniently, ignores one more not-so-minor matter: namely, that if one had been black, or if one’s friend had been Latino, one’s life and that of said friend would have been completely different, and not only on that day that you or he applied to Harvard or for that particular contract, but every day before that.

    In short, claims of white victimhood only make sense if one has so imbibed a mentality of entitlement that one actually believes whites earned all that extra stuff, that we earned our better health, or the relative wealth status we merely inherited from our families (which inherited it from theirs), or preferential treatment from cops. Which is to say, it’s the kind of thing that can only make sense to those lacking the most basic capacity for critical thought, and anything remotely resembling that which we might call, perspective.

    Racism is racism. It doesnt matter what race the racist is, or what race the racist thinks is inferior.
    Only a racist thinks other races cant be racist.

    In my opinion:

    Since the 1960s, Caucasian Americans have been the most generous people on earth.

    They have done more to correct the injustices of the past than anyone could have ever imagined.

    I feel that all non-Caucasian Americans owe a debt of gratitude to Caucasian Americans and should cease demonizing them.

    Reactionary bile from a twerp who is literally afraid of me and the arguments I have thrown in his face for years on every social media platform he has.

    Nothing you copy and pasted even addresses anything I said in this thread either.
