September Food For Thought – Is Reverse Racism Real?

reverseracismcartoon

Welcome to the first of many installments of Food For Thought brought to you by the ladies of the Black Women’s Support Network. Throughout the year, we will be providing an array of interesting and thought-provoking topics often accompanied articles or videos in an effort to embrace and foster fruitful, open dialogue among members of our community. You will be able to find all of these posts on our website.

The September installment of Food For Thought, is inspired by a recent blog post, “Why Reverse Racism Isn’t Real” by Sara Luckey on Feminspire.com. You can read the post here.

The notion of so-called reverse racism is not new. In fact, in 2011 Tufts University School of Arts and Sciences and Harvard Business Review conducted a study in which they found that “anti white racism has now increased and is now a bigger problem than anti-black racism.” (Link to article & study.)

What does all of this mean? Luckey vehemently rejects the idea of “reverse racism”. She claims, “When white people complain about experiencing reverse racism, what they’re really complaining about is losing out on or being denied their already existing privileges.”
