Example Of Reverse Oppression

100 Words1 Page
All humans are prejudice and discriminate, yes. However, oppression must be backed by history, culture, institution, and ideology (Sensoy & DiAngelo, 2012). There is no reverse form of oppression because the target group does not hold the power of the elements needed for oppression to occur. For example whites cannot experience “reverse racism”. There is no ideology that blacks are superior to whites, history does not constitute segregation benefitting blacks, or even slavery, it is not rare that whites hold power in all institutions (media, government, schools, etc.) and whites do not have to conform to blacks’ culture to survive.
