Reverse racism is a phenomenon in which discrimination occurs against a dominant or majority of the race, which some people think does not exist because in order to be racist, you have to have a privilege. Racism involves the idea that one’s race is superior and has the right to dominate others. Many people, the minority of the population, think that white people have white privilege, where they can get away with doing such things because of their white color while people of color would have a harder time if put in bad situation. For example, the media portraits white suspects as innocent but any people of color would be labeled as terrorists. The problem with reverse racism also brings up the topic of slavery.
Why are mexicans being treated bad and unfairly ? Even though , there is a statement “ Everyone is created equal “. Not everyone is equal because if a person is equal shouldn’t the other have the same right? For some people being treated fairly is about being a certain race white, black , brown or whatever color you are. NO RACISM but all what is on the news is that white people are not being punished how they are supposed to but blacks and hispanics are being treated low and in many people’s opinions that is not right.
It is a struggle for people not to be able to think freely. However, the Council in Anthem has forbidden individual thoughts.

Then there is his conception of “globalized racism” , in which he states that not every racist event is made out to be the tip of an iceberg, wherein a deeper, systemic problem lies. He insists that, “Global racism was the answer. With it, the smallest racial incident proved the “global truth” of systemic racism.” Steele seems to ignore the fact that the very basis of discrimination in any capacity against a black person because of his/her skin colour carries the historical burden of having perceived people with black skin colour as less than human and, therefore, beneath them. The possibility that the number of black people enjoying the “affirmative action with a new sense of entitlement” might be less than the number of people who might need that affirmative action, if at least
Many people around the world today wonder what it would be like to have a utopian society where everyone is equal and judgment isn’t existent. Though people have wondered this, it clearly is not possible because somebody has to create something to equal things out and as humans, we have a nature to want to be better, or more efficient than others. In recent films such as Harrison Bergeron, a utopian society is attempted to be created and seem successful in the beginning, but like before, there is always one who knows, or has more power and control than the others. Eventually utopian societies will fail and become dystopian where government controls or a supreme being will be a ruler, this is why we have to keep our society as modern as
Although Affirmative Action can help to combat the negative effects of racism within our society, it cannot nullify white supremacist thinking, which has a profound impact on individual development and beliefs. White supremacy is the belief that members of the white race are superior to members of other races, and should dominate non-white people socially, economically, and politically. The white supremacist ideology is omnipresent in American society and dominates media, politics, and even education. Movies and television are dominated by white actors while little representation is granted to people of color. White beauty standards are seen by all, and very few of the historical figures taught in school are anything other than white.
By stating that all lives matter it negates the message that BLM is trying to make clear. It denies African Americans the recognition that their lives matter by attempting to make them feel foolish, selfish, or silly. If all lives matter, then black lives matter, but if all lives really did matter equally under the rule of law, BLM would not need to exist. Yet here BLM stands, stoically pushing for the legitimacy that it should have been rightfully awarded at its start. BLM’s struggle for legitimacy is based on the power structures of systemic racism created by the country’s unanimously white founders from the start.

Not cool, right? It wouldn’t feel good at all to find out that others think you are on a lower level than them just because of your skin color. That your not as good as them just because of your skin color.
