why black people can't be racist

This article was composed to address the (all too frequent imo) question "can blacks be racist?" The answer is NO. Black people can exhibit prejudice, bias and/or bigotry. However, by definition, blacks simply do not have the power to exercise racism. 

racism (n):

1.) a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.

2.) a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination

By watching these videos, we can gain an understanding of what racism really is, and how it adversely affects people of color. My hope with this post is to clear up the true meaning of racism and move forward in that truth toward some type of healing. Ase.
