You may have noticed in your discussions with others about race or when you’ve been reading through the comments section on content posted by a BIPOC writer (including on some of my own videos), that people use the phrase “reverse racism” to talk about how white people are also the target of racism.
This perception comes up in many different situations, whether it’s because a white person feels adversely affected by affirmative action policies or because they’re upset that they’ve been called out for cultural appropriation.
This phrase has now become a full beehive in my bonnet and so I’ve been itching to take this on because reverse racism reflects a lack of understanding of white supremacy.
In this video, I explain why reverse racism doesn’t exist and share a helpful way of explaining the difference between racism and prejudice the next time someone brings up reverse racism.
