Do you ever think minorities will together turn racism on Caucasians in revenge?

You always hear that racism is carried out towards the minorities, largely if not solely by Caucasians.

Now that minorities have a voice in most of the Western world, do you think they will ever gang up on whites all together to get back at them for all of the injustice that was carried out towards their ancestors?

Sort of like 'well you started racism initially, so it's only fair that you get a taste of it'.

  • No.

    1) Just because people are members of minorities does not automatically mean they get along. For example, where I'm from, black people and Asian people do not get along (generally speaking).

    2) Last time I checked, white people HAVE also been oppressed at certain points in history. All racial groups have been enslaved and oppressed at some point in history. Granted, some were on a larger, more well-known scale than others but nonetheless, all racial groups have felt racism and oppression. And in many cases, races enslaved members of their own racial group. link

    3) Revenge for what? No one in America TODAY has ever owned slaves or been a slave. I have never mistreated anyone just because of their race. I have never been racist or prejudice to anyone in my life. Why should anyone "get back" at members of another race for "injustices done to their ancestors"? No one alive today had any part in that, white people in America can not control what happened in the past.

    I'm not trying to downplay the slavery that happened in America because yes, it was an awful and horrible time in our history. However, I get so sick of hearing black people act like white people owe THEM something for what happened in the past. And I have nothing at all against black people, my boyfriend is black, but he doesn't blame white people today for what happened in the past. So when SOME, not all, black people do that, it really gets on my nerves.

    And also, I do realize that some white people today are still racist, but there are just as many racist black, Hispanic, asian, etc. people too. And people who are legitimately racists are in the minority. They [racist people of all races] do NOT represent the entire racial group.

  • No, the sins of our fathers shouldn't be "avenged" because it accomplishes nothing.

    Also, remember that there is inter-minority racism which is actually more popular than white vs other racism, even though it isn't publicized as much. This giving the impression that racism is a white only thing. link

    Whites have fought racism, too. Not all whites are of the same background and most whites in the US are Irish and German. Irish, German and Italians were heavily discriminated against. These whites were immigrants and most never owned slaves. The Irish had it the worst, they were called the "white negros" or "wiggers" because of their low status being as low or sometimes lower than blacks. link Some jobs would allow any other race including blacks and asians, but "No Irish Need Apply": link The "Know Nothing" party was the one the KKK was a part of and one of their primal duties was beating and killing Irish along with other races. link

    So to sum everything up, racism is bad but getting "revenge" for past racism will accomplish nothing and make everything worse.

    • Yes white immigrants from Europe faced problems when they came to America in the early 20th century they were but that was mostly because American whites looked at them as competition for jobs It had nothing to do with skin color . and Irish people could hide especially if they married and their name changed to a more English American last name.

  • Never happen...

    Racism is just one form of tribalism, and that exists in every corner of the globe, in every country and every group of people. There are at least a dozen active ethnic conflicts happening right now, along with latent prejudice between local tribes going back for generations.

    Long story short... people are too busy hating their neighbors to unite against white people.

  • I grew up in an area of Los Angeles during the 70s when racism was rampant. It was ugly, blatant and often violent, and it was 99% black on white. So there is no question in my mind that the answer to yours is yes, and it has been happening for a long time in many places. It's just not PC to acknowledge that side of it.

    The person who created race classification invented racism. There's no such thing as race, It's been proven by science that there's no such thing as race, all a person has to do is study anthropology to find this out. Racism is about control and sex. All 50 states in the USA at one time had laws against any interracial marriages and sex. In the late 19th century Drugs were outlawed by congress because of racist white southern politicians claimed that Blacks and Mexicans were raping white women high off of cocaine and marijuana and Asian off of opium . At first the laws only banned non whites from using the drug but eventually the law was updated because of fears that the drugs were "corruption" the minds of white women making them want to have sexual relations with non white men. Yes white women they try to keep you away from that black, Latino, and Asian stick lord knows they tried but they knew that integration was inevitable especially after the end of Jim crow.

    • you mean eye for an eye? If you believe that the best way of dealing with someone's racism towards you is being racist back towards them, society's in big trouble.

    • No, I was saying that that was a stupid comment, and if someone believed that white people essentially "invented" racism, they'd probably be deserved of racism towards them.

      And the comment you just left is what your whole question suggests, so I don't know why you are directing this towards me.

    • yea my whole question suggests that because I've heard a few people say that. I definitely don't support it.

      My bad, I thought by posting that, you supported the idea of eye for an eye. ah, communication would be so much easier in person at times, eh :P

  • Considering the fact that certain minorities are racist toward one another, I doubt it. I know that in my area blacks don't get along with Hispanics very well at all, perhaps even worse than they get along with whites.

  • They already do? Black people can and are openly racist towards whites. It's interesting that they've always pushed for equality, and now that they have it - they take advantage of it. Why would you do back to others, what you don't want done to yourself?

    • i agree, but they're never called out on it unless they're white. Look at the comments on yahoo whenever they post an article somehow related to racism, and there will also be some comments relating that to racism by whites.

      i once even saw someone asking 'why can you call out a white person on doing this as a racist act, but poc do that all the time and get by scot free'?

      The person replied that racism can only be carried out by someone who's ancestors ever faced prejudice.

    • I agree to an extent, but I don't believe equality has really happened yet, and I don't think Institutional racism has ended

    • President is black. No one has special water fountains, no separate black seating on buses, equal opportunity with employment and education applications. So you think people have differential access to the goods, services, and opportunities of society? I think not.

  • No because a lot of minority groups do not get along. It isn't like we're all going to join hands against white people. There are perceived hierarchies between minority groups and many non-whites do not look at whites as the enemy, but as people they strive to be like

    • There is no such thing as Karma. There might be consequences to actions (or inaction), but there's no such thing as a mystical force that will punish and reward others depending on their actions. If there was, our world would be a much better place than it is.

    • That's your opinion.

  • No,that would be ignorant and nonprogressive for anyone to have that mindset...although some people do.The white people I know do not have servants,slaves...whatever you want to call it.I can't imagine wanting to punish an innocent person for what their ancestors did to my race.SOME of us have evolved from that way of thinking,SOME of us have not.Racism still exists,but I'm proud that I don't help perpetuate it.Anyone who wants to punish or who is holding a grudge against someone for something that happened years ago is just wasting their short life.I would rather move forward and show love to everyone regardless of their skin color.I don't have time for senseless hate...or ignorance.

  • I don't think that all minorities will get along just because they're minorities. It's more complex than that, really.

    I remember on my college campus, one prof was curious why African Americans and the other black students didn't hang out together. Apparently, the non American black students often found all Americans difficult to deal with, for the most part. Culture is defined by a lot more than skin color. For example, not too long ago, various white groups were considered minorities and looked down upon and discriminated against. This includes Irish, Polish, Italian, etc. Class plays a HUGE role in American society, as much as race I would say.

  • How on earth is that the way to fight it?!

    I've experienced racism, but that's just not right.

    Some people are bred with hate from the moment they are born, so of course they might want revenge. But you're only asking for the past to repeat itself. Why would you wish that kind of behavior on your worst enemy?

    Yes, I think it's possible, but I think it is very, very messed up if someone think that's okay.

      I was just speaking with expression to sort-of show my emotion towards it I guess? xD

      I mean't 'You're' as like...a term for your average person. Sorry if it sounded like I was attacking you D:

    • Oh, and I'd just like to say that earlier today a user called me racist and attacked me, simply for saying that my cousin said that the race card didn't exist in Kuwait. Like..how is that racist? I'm saying what someone else said.
