I appreciate that you took the time to reply.

The mobile version of the site doesn't display rules on the right of this page (perhaps a feature could be added).

I never said that poc are bad. We should avoid characterising anyone based on race altogether. I advocate that broad-stroke statements like "black people do this," "white people do that" shouldn't be used.

I'm not the only one to feel that if we are going to make judgements, we should judge someone by their individual actions and those they associate with in good faith, and never by their race/ phenotype/ genetic legacy.

That Charles Mills quote is great and he has a passion with his words. If you substitute "white ignorance" with "stubborn ignorance" it works just as well.

A Brit can be racist to an Irish. A Somalian can be racist to a Trinidadian. Someone can be racist by discriminating against a family-line that have distinctive/characteristic noses. I don't know what "reverse racism" is but racism is any discrimination based on race.

The most important part of the Charles Mills quote is specifically his reference to "white ignorance". No substitution is required because it states exactly what is needed to be said.
