The first and most important point is that racism can NOT be perpetrated against white folks, its not possible. Racism requires institutional power that is not afforded Black and Brown individuals in this country.

That’s illogical as stated. If you qualify that statement by saying that SYSTEMIC racism requires institutional power, that’s correct; but any individual or group of individuals can quite easily hold the view that their race is superior to another, and act in accordance with that view, without holding any sort of institutional power advantage.

Hope that helps.
