So a lot of people say you can't be racist against white people and I don't get it. The definition of racism is "the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races." It says nothing about "Oh since white people have been on top it's okay to discriminate them blah blah blah"
So basically if there was one white kid in an all black school, the other kids are not going to treat them differently?
And by the way I'm mixed, half black half white.

Rhetorically, everyone can be guilty of racism. The effects of racism differ depending on who is acting in a racist manner, however. People with power, whether economically, politically or otherwise, can use their power to harm those whom they dislike. Historically, the people with power have not been minorities. Therefore, many minorities feel as if they can't be racist against white people because their racism has no practical effect apart from some hurt feelings. Anyone can be racist, however. How destructive the racism is varies from person to person according to their influence and action.1

Yes, you can. I was gonna post the definition but you already did.
And I was gonna give you that example, don't be a white person in an all black school. Don't be a Mexican in an all black school. Don't be a Mexican in an all white school. Basically, if you're the "different" one, you will be picked on.
I think what SJWs, and Sociology majors want to do is make racism=oppression. In the US, we can't systematically be racist and what white people feel is individual racism. They're both wrong.0
