While I’m sure that at some point I could identify something different types of White people say/do that would loosely fit into the “racist” category, I think some people get out of hand when they use this as an explanation for everything (or too many things).
To be clear, the idea that “all Whites are racist” is a racial prejudice. Of course, the idea rest on the concept that Whites, e.g., are socialized in a way that makes them all “racist” — i.e. people who possess some amount/level of racial prejudice, discomfort, animosity or anxiety about non-whites. What makes asserting this idea (“all Whites are racist”) a racial prejudice is when a person just assumes any and every individual White is predictably, automatically racist without evidence that they are.
Me, I’m all for viewing people as innocent until proven guilty. I’m also for ending the practice where people take an idea like the notion that “all Whites are racist” and bastardize it by using it in a way that was never intended.
Also, the assumption that all Whites need to be treated, a position the University of Delaware took, besides not being greeted with cheers, is frankly rather presumptuous. I won’t even mention the nature of the treatment or the treatees…
