That NEW Adage

A pressure-relief valve about God, and just about everything else.

This has always bothered me…


Why is it called “REVERSE RACISM” when white folk are injured?

It implies, or outright states, that the PROPER DIRECTION OF RACISM IS FROM WHITE TO OTHER!

I know what you mean, Sean and Rush! You’re supposed to be the ones discriminating.

  2. I’ve never understood it, either. I figure if it’s discrimination or racism or whatnot, then that’s what it is. No “reverse” or anything else …

    … largely because there is no right direction.

  3. That is too funny! They actually put themselves on blast admitting to being racist.

    YEP!

  4. Never thought of it that way but now that you point it out, the terms “reverse racism” and “reverse discrimination” (always used in the context of the action happening to whites) do presuppose that both racism and discrimination are from white, and to other. Illogical, or at a minimum inconsistent, with the general definitions. This observation actually helps supports the concept of “instituational racism”. Interesting and astute observation.
