The article isn't the disturbing part about this report, but the discussion that took place in the comment section where we had creationist denying counter-evidence to the claims about the age of fossils with soft tissue, and also being downright delusion and crazy and making some of the most ludicrous statements that I have ever had the pleasure of viewing.
And, he got an IP ban? That's a little harsh though, now CadenceV2 wasn't always pleasant, but he wasn't a major troll on this site.
There was other stuff that led to it. He was also trolling wolverine fans at one point by putting him in threads and limiting him to his killable feats only. All though trolling naruto fans was the main reason and the final nail in the coffin.
I don't know how I missed all of that, but I knew he was very biased against Wolverine.
How so? African American aren't really in any position (socio-economical) to institute against a particular ethnic group.
This assumes that racism has to be an institutional and widespread form of discrimination. Racism can exist on an individual level with any person, regardless of ethnic background.
Keywords: widespread discrimination
In addition to that racism would have to be institutionalize or systematic in order to oppress an entire ethnic group, so I don't really see your point here.
My point is that I'm disagreeing with you. You don't have to oppress every member of an ethnic group to be a racist, just like you don't have to oppress every woman to be a chauvinist, or every homosexual to be homophobic. Widespread discrimination is only one type of racism not all of racism, so yes, it is possible for racism to go both ways, or any way for that matter (because black people and white people are often treated as the only two groups in the discussion). I'd agree that black people as a group cannot institutionally opress the white majority in America (nor any other minority group), but that doesn't mean that no other race is capable of racism at times.
The topic of this thread is dealing with (multiple individuals) being oppressed as a collective group which is why I used the words widespread discrimination in my original post. You are right, you don't need to discriminate against every single member of a ethnic group to be classified as a racist; but that isn't the topic of this thread though. You misunderstood what the OP was discussing in this thread.
The problem with that is that your response to Racob's original comment makes it sound like it's impossible for non whites to be racist. That's misleading since it is incorrect. The initial comment was very general, and rather than saying "sure, racism can go both ways, but in the context of this thread..." you disagreed. This equates the narrow term of "widespread discrimination" with the much broader term of "racism." This isn't necessarily your fault, I'm just trying to be transparent with any readers who might read this.
You are assuming things instead of you asking me what I thought. I'm seeing what's wrong here? The title of this thread and OP made it plainly obvious we were talking about whites as an ethnic group.
