Why African-Americans tolerate racism toward others?

Abraham Wang

I am Asian and I live in Chicago, which has a large African-American population. I’ve been the victim of racial harassment by black youth on several occasions. I don’t judge all African-Americans on the actions of a few because none of my African-American friends behave like that. But I’m disappointed at the failure of the African-American community at large to make racism towards other ethnic minorities a more visible issue and publicly condemn racism towards Asians and Latinos. Blacks are not always the victims of racism; sometimes they are the perpetrators too.
