Reverse racism

The concept of reverse racism or reverse discrimination has been used, especially in the United States, to describe the perceived denial of rights and privileges to members of dominant groups in order to benefit racial and ethnic minorities. The term has also been used to characterize various expressions of hostility or indifference toward white people by members of minority groups. Claims of reverse racism tend to ignore disparities in the exercise of power and authority that scholars argue constitute an essential component of racism. In this view, isolated examples of favoring disadvantaged people over more privileged ones cannot constitute actual racism.

Reverse Racism Does Not Exist

This is a topic I feel very strongly about because as a black girl going to a predominantly white school, when I express my dislike for the appropriation of a white girl I am quickly labeled as racist but...reversed. I would immediately feel embarrassed of my behavior, adjust my comments to be more polite, and become the token black friend again while I watched as Becky sported my protective hairstyle as high fashion. The logic of it all confused me as I had to look more like my white friends for them to accept me while they all seemed to want to look and act like the old me. As I became more educated in my own history, I realized there was no such thing as reverse racism. The article explains my feelings exactly.
