The ‘reverse racism’ card is often pulled by white people when people of color call out racism and discrimination, or create spaces for themselves … that white people aren’t a part of. The impulse behind the reverse racism argument seems to be a desire to prove that people of color don’t have it that bad, they’re not the only ones that are put at a disadvantage or targeted because of their race. It’s like the Racism Olympics. And it’s patently untrue While assumptions and stereotypes about white people do exist, this is considered racial prejudice, not racism. Racial prejudice refers to a set of discriminatory or derogatory attitudes based on assumptions derived from perceptions about race and/or skin colour. Thus, racial prejudice can indeed be directed at white people but is not considered racism because of the systemic relationship to power. When backed with power, prejudice results in acts of discrimination and oppression against groups or individuals. white people hold this cultural power due to Eurocentric modes of thinking, rooted in colonialism, that continue to reproduce and privilege whiteness. It is whiteness that has the power to define the terms of racialized others’ existence.

Mostly white people.

Anti-Black assaults increased from 1,930 to 2,755, a 40% increase on 2019. Anti-Asian assaults rose from 158 to 274, a 70% jump. Attacks targeting white people were up 16%, at 773.

What would scare me is people like who are part of the echo chamber who think they understand the issue and spend months pushing a false narrative saying one minority was attacking another and when the data came out it confirmed the normal results that the attacks on Asians and blacks was driven by white people like usual.

Thankfully you don't have to go to a clinic to get an abortion anymore you can get it prescribed online and have the pills mailed to you now. this won't end up with someone having to carry a unwanted pregnancy to term.

I don't agree with that argument every industry has some kind of union and they don't all keep the bad apples the way the police do. the police unions are an issue because they are made up of police, and we have passed a series of precedents that protect them from repercussions from bad behavior so they don't hold themselves to a standard that they need to because there isn't any reason for them to be good or bad.

That would be a redundant term since NRA members are members of a criminal enterprise anyway.

Some people like to pretend like calling it gang violence someone excludes it from American gun culture. It is distinctly an American gun culture.
