Yet there is an NAACP and no NAAWP, a Black Miss America Pageant but no White Miss America Pageant, it's fine to be vocally proud of being a Black American Native American Hispanic American Asian American but not a White American, statues of white heroes who founded and built America are torn down while a statue of a black criminal is erected, and the list goes on and on.
Seems like discrimination of white people by those of color in America is just as much a problem.

Maybe because whites don't play the victim card.

Scenario one. Three whites found not guilty. Blacks everywhere burn, loot and murder.
Because it would be a clear case of lack of justice. And they'd have the right to be upset along with people of other colors who would see it as a failure of the court system. I mean, I'd be upset too.
Scenario two. Three whites found guilty. Whites everywhere burn, loot, and murder.
Why would somebody burn, loot, and murder when justice prevailed? Most sane white people would look at this verdict and say - well, that's what they deserve.

There are whites who’s grandparents talks very fondly of the days of strange fruit.

Why would White people need that? They built the system that favours them in the first place ...

When have white people been victimized?

Hey, why wasn't there any burning, looting, and murdering by the whites? :200:
What would be their reason to do so?

So now it's time for people of color to proudly discriminate against white people?
A woman of color can become Miss America but ONLY a black woman can be Miss Black America. Can you imagine the out cry if there was a Miss White America that only accepted white women?
There is an NAACP for people of color and white people accept it but if there was an NAAWP the people of color would lose their :cuss:
There is a United Black College fund which white people accept and even donate to it. Do you think that people of color would accept and donate to a United White Person College Fund?

Isn't discrimination in all forms the problem or is it just a game of "You did it to me so now I'm going to do it to you" followed by "You did it to me so now I'm going to do it to you" again and again and again? Racism is prejudice or intolerance based on race and sadly EVERY race is guilty of it if they exclude another in any of their activities.

And the left wing politicians tell us we have to take that abuse, and too many of us do.

Hey, it's no different than blacks calling each other the "N" word, but if a white person uses it, off with their head.

And the black only colleges, isn't that segregation that so many older blacks fought against?

And a person of color can call a white person Cracker, honkie, whitey or a host of other racially derogatory names and it's accepted.
Racism clearly exists within EVERY race but for some reason white people are the only ones to be considered as being racist.
