America's Tolerance for Black Racism

A closet white racist, Donald Sterling, owner of the NBA team, The LA Clippers, gets universally shunned by America and ends up being banned for life from the NBA after an illegally recorded audio of him making racist comments in a private conversation go public. Now, some prominent blacks are saying that "More needs to be done". In addition to them wanting to force him to sell his team, do you think they think there's "More to be done" about open black racists like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Snoop Doggie Dog, spike lee, etc., paying no price for their out of the closet racism? No, that's not what they mean. Until black racism is as intolerable as white racism is in America, I agree that "More needs to be done".

Black racism and white racism isn't the same. History unarguably shown has shown that being on the receiving end of white racism by a colored man is much more dangerous than being a white man on the receiving end of black/colored racism. This is entirely due to the difference in political and socioeconomic status between the two communities. social standards reflect this truth and to argue otherwise is to think white-on-black and black-on-white racism is interchangeable. If that were the case we wouldn't be talking about racism (which is to do with inferiority and superiority) but just plain old tribalism.

Racism is Racism, no matter what Muslims and Leftists try to redefine it as.

Sajid, suggestion that racism is inherently worse when it rears it head by any one particular race, is a racist statement, you racist.

Bosch,
What amused me about the black players' (and other black "notables")responses was the racist content of their rantics. (Portmanteau of rant and antics).

Sajid,
So, I guess, then, because the Arab slave traders were "Semitic" rather than "White" that their form of racism was somehow attenuated? Huh. Funny how even though the vast majority of the African Slave trade went INTO muslim countries that we don't find very many black enclaves there. Might give the lie to your assertion about the relative benevolence of "non-white" racism.
