A video riff on “Reverse Racism Isn’t.”
Racism exists when the powerful in a society use their power to keep some groups in a position of disadvantage or oppression. Where there is no power, there can be no racism.
If you’re trying to figure out where the power is in a situation, try flipping the roles and see whether the result looks ridiculous.
“Bullying a White Co-Worker” is a stunning video that makes this important point about “reverse racism.” It is from Legally Brown, from the Australian comedy series “Flip World,” in which Dis/Advantage roles are reversed. (Click the title to view the video.)
