How to be wise

Reverse racism

65 posts in this topic

@Raphael   it's called slave mentality and self hate. 

I've seen Indians give better treatment to whites than other Indians. For example one day I was sitting in the lobby waiting for a doctor and me and other people had been waiting for hours. A white man enters in. He sits among us. Then the doctors advises the staff to let in the white guy first. He is given priority over others. 

If I'm sitting in an Indian restaurant, the Indian manager of the restaurant will first serve a white couple or family and then serve us. 

I understand that there is a "respect the outsider" culture in India but sometimes it's not just about respect but a certain slave mentality. 

So if the Indian person suffered because of a criminal, no action will be taken but if a white tourist was affected by a crime, the police immediately takes action and gives them VIP treatment. 

It's like an after impact of colonialism. 

It's like our own government will favor the white person over us. 

But it's no big deal since we don't want  any white person to be treated badly anyway or suffer a bad experience so it's not like we complain about it. Most people are glad that the white people who live in the community have a happy experience living among us. 

Yet the bias is kinda openly visible. But like I said we don't mind it.

@Preety_India There's a global unconscious bias in the world.

Oh boy. 

No comparison to how racism actually feels. 

The whole concept of reverse racism either undermines real racism or just ridicules it. 

Is this comparison supposed to make racists feel better about racism or is it supposed to make victims of racism feel less validated? 

It reminds me of the situation where men talk about male rape and use that as a comparison to rape of women. 

Such videos and whatever they imply are the biggest examples of false equivalency. 

A white dude is not going to feel inferior in an African tribe. End of the story. Because guess what, universal culture has already assumed that he is superior and he is well aware of it. 

An African can feel inferior among a bunch of Trumpists. 

You're comparing apples with oranges here. 

 

There's not such thing as "universal culture" for isolated african tribes. They are unafected by and ignoring the rest of the world.

Discrimination for not being equal to the integrants of the tribe is racism here and in planet mars. 

How you dare to negate inverse racism while white christians are burned alive in south africa?

First of all my response was to the content posted that is the video. 

There is no such content that shows white people being burned alive in South Africa. 

Try to argue always in terms of context. The context was not about mistreatment of white in South Africa. 

That kind of reverse racism is understandable and it is racism as well and should be criticised just the way regular or real racism is. 

The video is about a tourist being asked for money. That's not equivalent to the racism that blacks are subjected to. 

I have never said reverse racism doesn't exist. Nor have I said it can't be severe. Of course there must be parts of the world where reverse racism exists in severe forms like the example you mentioned in South Africa. 

My point was that the video posted is in no way logically equivalent to the extent of racism actually directed at black communities.

   It's good that you're attempting to argue more outside the context of the video and less from inside the context. This is one key to being open-minded, yet it's also good to argue using a little bit of inside context as well. Keep giving more examples from outside context, and some from inside context, so that way it's a bit more balanced.

Speaking of South Africa, I came across this documentary recently. I didn't watch it, but it looks interesting.

   This is actually a good documentary, discussing racism in a different country other than the USA. Currently watching to see what it's like.

What's going on there would be the exact same as people still punishing Germans because of the war. Like it's not their fault what Hitler did. The whites & blacks in south Africa need to come together & celebrate equality & harmony,  not revenge, which is ridiculous because these kids weren't involved in the apartheid regime anyway.

@Preety_IndiaWhy is that degrading? I see absolutely nothing wrong with brown mouths... you made that association not me. I find brown mouths just as beautiful and entitled to expression as all other coloured mouths... I was referring to colour only in relation to how people are treated unequally based upon it (either favourably or unfavourably)...

In this case you have brown privilege to whinge about how hard it is for you whilst I do not have that same privilege (which is only fair because of my privilege)

I think we should treat each other equally as much as possible and as far as is reasonable put race aside

Oh just stop it with your gaslighting of @Preety_India. You know that calling someone "brown mouth" is degrading. It's racist. Period.

Stop antagonizing.

@Arcangelo  but it can be significantly reduced. 

Humans are also enslavers. 

But look how far we have come?

We have ended human slavery. I'm talking about racial slavery. 

At least now if you're a wage slave, anyone can be a slave, irrespective of race at least we got that part sorted out. 

Maybe wage slavery will be sorted out too.

Humans are racist. 

Being racist is human nature.

Being racist is what happens when someone projects their own Shadow onto a whole group of people that they consider "other."

It is what happens people are unconscious... they project onto large groups of people as a result of that unconsciousness. 

But it isn't an inherent aspect of human nature. 

So, don't go excusing unconscious behavior because you think it's just the way that human beings are... because you're conveniently leaving out the fact that human beings are capable of being more conscious and forming deep bonds with people of any race or nationality.

Basically, don't excuse your own unconsciousness and pass it off as "nature."
