Reverse Racism is still Racism.

This text has been floating around MySpace and probably the entire Internet, I've seen it here and there, but I guess it's my turn to share it. There's some epithets, but there's actually a really good point behind it: reverse racism is still racism.

You call me "Cracker", "Honkey", "Whitey", "Casper" and you think it's OK.

But if I call you nigger, towelhead, sand-nigger, camel jockey, beaner, wetback, saltwater nigger, gook, or chink it's not ok because you call me a racist.

You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you, so why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?

You have the United Negro College Fund.
You have Martin Luther King Day.
You have Black History Month.
You have Cesar Chavez Day.
You have Yom Hashoah
You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi
You have the NAACP.
You have BET.

If we had WET(white entertainment television) we'd be racists.

If we had a White Pride Day you would call us racists.

If we had white history month, we'd be racists.

If we had an organization for only whites to "advance" our lives, we'd be racists.

If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships, you know we'd be racists.

In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights. If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us racists.

You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you're not afraid to announce it. But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists.

You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us.
But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug-dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist.


But, you call me a racist.

Why is it that only whites can be racists?

Now watch, I'll be a racist for posting this.

Like I said, I have no idea who wrote that; it's floating around the Internet.

Nobody should be proud of their heritage.
