Not sure how else to word that title… so hear me out. First of all, I want everyone reading this to know that I respect your opinions – even if they’re different from mine – and I will allow all comments to go through as long as they aren’t too crazy.
This post asked “Should White Women Attend Blogging Conferences for Women of Color“? While reading the post, I wasn’t upset. However, after reading through other posts on Bicultural Mom’s blog, I was very sad. While I think it is awesome that she is embracing her husband’s heritage, I find it disheartening that it seems she has not found a balance between embracing his heritage and accepting hers.
Reading through the comments on the above linked post, you will see varying views. This comment, though, I disagree with – and I want to know what you think.
Can you be racist against white people?
I have so much more I’d like to say, but I am going to leave it at that today. I would love to hear your thoughts on this question.

Just want to point out…prejudice against white folks is not “racism”, it’s “prejudice” or “discrimination”. Racism is something else entirely…it’s a system that acts against people of color in this country (established through slavery and colonization)…so their is a difference.
So, tell me… Can one be racist against white people? Why or why not? Please be respectful when answering.
Please remember that Bicultural Mom and I are both real people and just because we are bloggers and online personalities doesn’t mean that rude comments hurt any less. So please keep that in mind when responding. Try to keep personal attacks (towards anyone) out of the comments.
