I’m White, so I’m obviously racist

In New York, people of all races live together. But people of all races all have their own thoughts on all the other races. This is nothing special.

What is special is that it is culturally acceptable for any race to say whatever they want about any race, EXCEPT for whites. Whites are the last race that it is okay to openly hate. People assume they are racist, sexist, sexually deviant, less intelligent, lazy, unrightfully privileged, and have no culture of any worth. Why is it okay for people to say this about whites, but it isn’t okay to say it about anybody else?

We’re all human. If we hate one, we hate everyone else. If we make fun of one race, why not make fun of them all? There might be a lot less tension in the world.
