Reverse Racism quotes by Justin Simien
#1. The idea of "post-racism," just like that of "reverse racism," is really just a coded way of denying the existence of actual racism. And denying the existence of actual racism is really just another form of (you guessed it) racism. #Quote by Justin Simien
Reverse Racism quotes by Bill Maher
#2. The big mistake of modern media has been this notion of balance for balance's sake. That the left is just as violent and cruel as the right, that unions are just powerful as corporations, that reverse racism is just as damaging as racism....

Governments led by liberal democrats passed laws which changed the air I breathe for the better. Okay I'm for them and not for the party that is as we speak plotting to abolish the E.P.A. And I don't need to pretend that both sides have a point here, and I don't care what left or right commentators say about it. I only care what climate scientists say about it.

Two opposing sides don't necessarily have two compelling arguments. Martin Luther King speaks on that wall in the capital and he didn't say "Remember folks, those southern sheriffs with the fire hoses and the German shepherds, they have a point too." No, he said, "I had a dream and they had a nightmare." This isn't Team Edward & Team Jacob. Liberals like the ones on that field must stand up and be counted and not pretend that we're as mean or greedy or shortsighted or plain batched as they are. And if that is too polarizing for you and you still want to reach across the aisle and hold hands and sing with someone on the right ... Try Church. #Quote by Bill Maher
Reverse Racism quotes by Paul Mooney
#3. There's no such thing as reverse racism. #Quote by Paul Mooney
Reverse Racism quotes by Shia Labeouf
#4. I was the only white kid in my neighborhood for most of my youth even in high school, so reverse racism was just as apparent as racism. #Quote by Shia Labeouf
Reverse Racism quotes by Bill Maher
#5. And what is the Republican solution to these outrageous [racial] inequalities? There isn't one. And that's the point. Denying racism is the new racism. To not acknowledge those statistics, to think of that as a 'black problem' and not an American problem. To believe, as a majority of FOX viewers do, that reverse-racism is a bigger problem than racism, that's racist, #Quote by Bill Maher
Reverse Racism quotes by Simon S. Tam
#6. People buy into this false notion of reverse racism, where they believe that just because there's a group of people getting together to share something about their heritage that we're excluding white people. But that's not the reality. #Quote by Simon S. Tam
Reverse Racism quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#7. I never liked North America, even first trip. It is not most
crowded part of Terra, has a mere billion people. In Bombay they sprawl
on pavements; in Great New York they pack them vertically--not sure
anyone sleeps. Was glad to be in invalid's chair.

Is mixed-up place another way; they care about skin color--by
making point of how they don't care. First trip I was always too light or
too dark, and somehow blamed either way, or was always being expected to
take stand on things I have no opinions on. Bog knows I don't know what
genes I have. One grandmother came from a part of Asia where invaders
passed as regularly as locusts, raping as they went--why not ask her?

Learned to handle it by my second makee-learnee but it left a sour
taste. Think I prefer a place as openly racist as India, where if you
aren't Hindu, you're nobody--except that Parsees look down on Hindus and
vice versa. However I never really had to cope with North America's
reverse-racism when being "Colonel O' Kelly Davis, Hero of Lunar Freedom. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Reverse Racism quotes by Mark Twain
#8. Everybody granted that if "Tom" were white and free it would be unquestionably right to punish him
it would be no loss to anybody; but to shut up a valuable slave for life
that was quite another matter. As soon as the Governor understood the case, he pardoned Tom at once, and the creditors sold him down the river. #Quote by Mark Twain
Reverse Racism quotes by Desmond Tutu
#9. Is Zionism racism? I would say yes. It's a policy that to me looks like it has very many parallels with racism. The effect is the same. Whether you call it that or not is in a sense irrelevant. #Quote by Desmond Tutu
Reverse Racism quotes by Billy Corgan
#10. I've thought many times, 'I can't write this,' but on my own little planet I found the courage to write it because it was true. I put aside fear of Father being angry with me. It's hard though; the world pales in comparison with the stature of a parent. In some small-consolation way, my parents feel I'm helping people by giving them something to identify with. They feel proud in a sort of reverse way. My mom's proud of the fact that lots of kids look up to me. #Quote by Billy Corgan
Reverse Racism quotes by Michelle Alexander
#11. The notion that racial caste systems are necessarily predicated on a desire to harm other racial groups, and that racial hostility is the essence of racism, is fundamentally misguided. Even slavery does not conform to this limited understanding of racism and racial caste. Most plantation owners supported the institution of black slavery not because of a sadistic desire to harm blacks but instead because they wanted to get rich, and black slavery was the most efficient means to that end. By and large, plantation owners were indifferent to the suffering caused by slavery; they were motivated by greed. Preoccupation with the role of racial hostility in earlier caste systems can blind us to the ways in which every caste system, including mass incarceration, has been supported by racial indifference – a lack of caring and compassion for people of other races. #Quote by Michelle Alexander
Reverse Racism quotes by William T. Sherman
#12. These men flocked to the plains, and were rather stimulated than retarded by the danger of an Indian war. This was another potent agency in producing the result we enjoy to-day, in having in so short a time replaced the wild buffaloes by more numerous herds of tame cattle, and by substituting for the useless Indians the intelligent owners of productive farms and cattle-ranches. #Quote by William T. Sherman
Reverse Racism quotes by Robin Wasserman
#13. In dreams you can become everything you're not. You can reverse the most fundamental truths of your life. You can taste death, the ultimate opposite. #Quote by Robin Wasserman
Reverse Racism quotes by Darnell Lamont Walker
#14. I remember reading article about the woman in that Oakland neighborhood who lost all her children to violence. I wondered why'd she keep living there after the first one was killed. Didn't she care about the others?
Today, I zoomed out and wondered why I'm still in America. #Quote by Darnell Lamont Walker
Reverse Racism quotes by Stephen King
#15. In that moment she hated him, loathed him, this good man she had married. There was really nothing so terrible on the reverse side of his goodness, his steadiness, his mild good humor – just the belief, apparently grounded in the bedrock of his soul, that everybody was looking out for number one, each with his or her own little racket. #Quote by Stephen King
Reverse Racism quotes by Harper Lee
#16. Never did I learn to think in terms of The Niggers. When I grew up, and I did grow up with black people, they were Calpurnia, Zeebo the garbage collector, Tom the yard man, and whatever else their names were. There were hundreds of Negroes surrounding me, they were the hands in the fields, who chopped the cotton, who worked the roads, who sawed the lumber to make our houses. They were poor, they were diseased and dirty, some were lazy and shiftless but never in my life was I given the idea that I should despise one, should fear one, should be discourteous to one, or think that I could mistreat one and get away with it.They as a people did not enter my world, nor did I enter theirs: when I went hunting I did not trespass on a Negro's land, not because it was a Negro's, but because I was not supposed to trespass on anybody's land. I was taught never to take advantage of anybody who was less fortunate than myself, whether he be less fortunate in brains, wealth, or social position; it meant anybody, not just Negroes. I was given to understand that the reverse was to be despised. That is the way I was raised, by a black woman and a white man. #Quote by Harper Lee
Reverse Racism quotes by A.G. Riddle
#17. We attack whatever is different, anything we don't understand, anything that might change our world, our environment, reduce our chances of survival. Racism, class warfare, sexism, east versus west, north and south, capitalism and communism, democracy and dictatorships, Islam and Christianity, Israel and Palestine, they're all different faces of the same war: the war for a homogeneous human race, an end to our differences. #Quote by A.G. Riddle
Reverse Racism quotes by Tim Wise
#18. The denial of racism is a form of racism itself. #Quote by Tim Wise
Reverse Racism quotes by Michael J. Sandel
#19. The self-satisfaction and material preoccupations of his time was independent of his point about the injustices of poverty, the Vietnam War, and racial discrimination. But he saw them as connected. To reverse these injustices, Kennedy thought it necessary to challenge the complacent way of life he saw around him. He did not hesitate to be judgmental. And yet, by invoking Americans' pride in their country, he also, at the same time, appealed to a sense of community. #Quote by Michael J. Sandel
Reverse Racism quotes by Anonymous
#20. In addition to its elements of adolescent titillation, the world of JA2 contains racism, sexism, xenophobia, government-sponsored torture, child labor, and extreme economic inequality. And yet it's difficult to say what the game's overall stance is on these issues. JA2 is highly pluralistic, allowing you to play all sorts of characters from all sorts of backgrounds. That pluralism leads to a kind of moral relativism. While you can have a squad of friendly heroes who help each other as well as the downtrodden people of Arulco, you can also play as a squad of psychotic good ol' boys who ignore issues of social justice, seeking only to get a paycheck for putting a bullet in the queen's head. #Quote by Anonymous
Reverse Racism quotes by Idries Shah
#21. If you want to know what he's like - reverse what his opponents say. #Quote by Idries Shah
Reverse Racism quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#22. even if a gentleman should lose his whole substance, he must never give way to annoyance. Money must be so subservient to gentility as never to be worth a thought. Of course, the SUPREMELY aristocratic thing is to be entirely oblivious of the mire of rabble, with its setting; but sometimes a reverse course may be aristocratic to remark, to scan, and even to gape at, the mob (for preference, through a lorgnette), even as though one were taking the crowd and its squalor for a sort of raree show which had been organised specially for a gentleman's diversion. Though #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Reverse Racism quotes by Evan Dara
#23. the figures are shadow-swept, various, self-involved, and as turbulent as waves, as standing waves ...; and as I look at them, as I curl more tightly into shin-warmth on my preferred bench, I wonder which of these figures, too, are runaways, which of these scudding clumps are the moving forms of runaways ...but runaways whom I don't recognize, whose rightfulness I don't acknowledge: which of these figures am I denying ...; because it would take, I am sure, only a glance, only one shared eye-shudder, for all this to end, for their circumstances suddenly to reverse; it would only take one glance upon them...and one glance from them...; this, then, would be interpenetration, genuine interpenetration, a real refutation of figure and ground...; #Quote by Evan Dara
Reverse Racism quotes by Malcolm X
#24. Where the really sincere white people have got to do their 'proving' of themselves is not among the black victims, but out on the battle lines of where America's racism really is - and that's in their own home communities. #Quote by Malcolm X
Reverse Racism quotes by Jonathan Renshaw
#25. Dorothy's cooking was legendary. It had once been said that she could turn soil to cake. William, her husband, had remarked that he could achieve the reverse, earning himself a sharp smack with the rolling pin. #Quote by Jonathan Renshaw
Reverse Racism quotes by Snoop Dogg
#26. The streets will teach you about racism and capitalism and survival of the fittest. Don't worry about that. The only thing you've got to worry about is if you've got enough cold-blooded ambition to apply the lessons you get taught. #Quote by Snoop Dogg
Reverse Racism quotes by Rio Ferdinand
#27. For too long now, European football authorities have not taken the problem of racism in the game seriously and refuse to acknowledge how widespread the problem is. #Quote by Rio Ferdinand
Reverse Racism quotes by Ayn Rand
#28. Today, we live in the Age of Envy.

"Envy" is not the emotion I have in mind, but it is the clearest manifestation of an emotion that has remained nameless; it is the only element of a complex emotional sum that men have permitted themselves to identify.

Envy is regarded by most people as a petty, superficial emotion and, therefore, it serves as a semihuman cover for so inhuman an emotion that those who feel it seldom dare admit it even to themselves. . . . That emotion is: hatred of the good for being the good.

This hatred is not resentment against some prescribed view of the good with which one does not agree. . . . Hatred of the good for being the good means hatred of that which one regards as good by one's own (conscious or subconscious) judgment. It means hatred of a person for possessing a value or virtue one regards as desirable.

If a child wants to get good grades in school, but is unable or unwilling to achieve them and begins to hate the children who do, that is hatred of the good. If a man regards intelligence as a value, but is troubled by self-doubt and begins to hate the men he judges to be intelligent, that is hatred of the good.

The nature of the particular values a man chooses to hold is not the primary factor in this issue (although irrational values may contribute a great deal to the formation of that emotion). The primary factor and distinguishing characteristic is an emotional mechanism set in reverse: #Quote by Ayn Rand
Reverse Racism quotes by Robin Morgan
#29. Where else could one find such a perfect combination of American values
racism, militarism, capitalism
all packaged in one 'ideal' symbol, a woman. #Quote by Robin Morgan
Reverse Racism quotes by Jonathan Lethem
#30. What age is a black boy when he learns he's scary? #Quote by Jonathan Lethem
Reverse Racism quotes by Calvin Trillin
#31. In the early sixties, the notion that racism was not acceptable even in certain regions or certain clubs or certain circumstances - the notion that it could not be treated with moderation - was a notion largely confined to black people. #Quote by Calvin Trillin
Reverse Racism quotes by Toni Morrison
#32. Sexist language, racist language, theistic language - all are typical of the policing languages of mastery, and cannot, do not, permit new knowledge or encourage the mutual exchange of ideas. #Quote by Toni Morrison
Reverse Racism quotes by Ice-T
#33. If you believe that I'm a cop killer, you believe David Bowie is an astronaut. #Quote by Ice-T
Reverse Racism quotes by Charles Eisenstein
#34. A revolution that leaves our conceptualization of self and world intact cannot bring other than temporary, superficial change. Only a much deeper revolution, a reconceiving of who we are, can reverse the crises of our age. #Quote by Charles Eisenstein
Reverse Racism quotes by Thomas Burnett Swann
#35. ...she grasped the terrible truth that love can never be compelled, from man, from sprite, from beast; that one who loves, however she longs for requital, however long she waits, may receive in return the reverse of what she gives, the dark side of the moon. #Quote by Thomas Burnett Swann
Reverse Racism quotes by A.E. Samaan
#36. Hitler learned his eugenics from the infamous "Baur-Fischer-Lenz" book that documented American and British eugenics. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Reverse Racism quotes by Oglala Lakota
#37. When I'm born I'm black, when I grow up I'm black, when I'm in the sun I'm black, when I'm sick I'm black, when I die I'm black, and you ... when you're born you're pink, when you grow up you're white, when you're cold you're blue, when you're sick you're blue, when you die you're green and you dare call me colored #Quote by Oglala Lakota
Reverse Racism quotes by Anne Lamott
#38. Sin is not the adult bookstore on the corner. It is the hard heart, the lack of generosity, and all the isms, racism and sexism and so forth. But is there a crack where a ribbon of light might get in, might sneak past all the roadblocks and piles of stones, mental and emotional and cultural? We #Quote by Anne Lamott
Reverse Racism quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#39. For example, tolerance designates a real problem - when I criticize it, I am, as a rule, asked: "But how can you be in favor of intolerance towards foreigners, of misogyny, of homophobia?" Therein resides the catch: of course I am not against tolerance per se; what I oppose is the (contemporary and automatic) perception of racism as a problem of intolerance. Why are so many problems today perceived as problems of intolerance, rather than as problems of inequality, exploitation, or injustice? Why is the proposed remedy tolerance, rather than emancipation, political struggle, or even armed struggle? The source of this culturalization is defeat, the failure of directly political solutions such as the social-democratic welfare state or various socialist projects: "tolerance" has become their post-political ersatz. #Quote by Slavoj Zizek
Reverse Racism quotes by Megyn Kelly
#40. I - listen, racism - being a racist is the worst thing you can say about somebody. I mean, it is such a charged accusation. And I really think people should be very careful before they level that. #Quote by Megyn Kelly
Reverse Racism quotes by Anthony Eden
#41. Eden ha[s] put his country in a position where she sustained the greatest diplomatic reverse since Bismarck in similar circumstances had called Palmerston's bluff in the matter of Schleswig-Holstein ... Further damage was done when Russia proved by her action in Spain, that she was not a good European as Mr. Eden had assured the world was the case. #Quote by Anthony Eden
Reverse Racism quotes by Mira Jacob
#42. There's a particular kind of close you get when you find someone you can trust in a space you don't. #Quote by Mira Jacob
Reverse Racism quotes by Mikhail Bakunin
#43. If God really existed, it would be necessary to abolish Him. #Quote by Mikhail Bakunin
Reverse Racism quotes by Malcolm X
#44. It's like the Negro in America seeing the white man win all the time.
He's a professional gambler; he has all the cards and the odds stacked on his side, and he has always dealt to our people from the bottom of the deck. #Quote by Malcolm X
Reverse Racism quotes by Nancy Ordover
#45. The fact of the matter is that nationalism thinks in terms of historical destinies, while racism dreams of eternal contaminations, transmitted from the origins of time through an endless sequence of loathsome copulations: outside history.
-Benedict Anderson, Imagined Communities #Quote by Nancy Ordover
Reverse Racism quotes by Vishen Lakhiani
#46. A set point is simply a bare-minimum threshold you establish for yourself that you promise you will not go below. A set point differs from a goal. Goals pull you forward, while set points help you maintain what you have. You need both. You can establish set points for anything important to you. And here's a secret: You can use set points not only to prevent or reverse slipping but also to improve over time. #Quote by Vishen Lakhiani
Reverse Racism quotes by Alice Childress
#47. I believe racism has killed more people than speed, heroin, or cancer, and will continue to kill until it is no more. #Quote by Alice Childress
