Lately, more and more people continue to tell me that racism against blacks, or people of color, doesn’t exist. Most of the time, their reasons seem unsubstantial or nonexistent altogether. Whatever explanations that are given, however, seem to hark back on everything from the Civil Rights Movement to the election of the nation’s first half-black President. Somehow, those and other certain events signify that racism is a thing of the past and that any accusations of racism today are not only bogus but racist in itself.
Basically, the experiences of African Americans in this country continue to get discounted over and over by those who strongly claim that racism no longer exists. Yet, some of the same naysayers believe that racism against whites is on the rise. If racism is no longer here, then shouldn’t that mean that there is no racism against whites by that line of reasoning?
