    Racism is a belief, expressed to others mainly by behavior. I don't think it's possible to eradicate it completely in any white child who lives inside the white patriarchy.

    But listening skills, mutual respect and self-worth go a long way towards counterbalancing the most despicable racist beliefs and behaviors.

    I am not willing to buy into that ... the idea that white people are inherently racist, or born that way. That is itself a racist presumption.

    Going to school? Don't use drugs? Stay out of trouble? That's a yes or no thing.

    Some form bad perceptions of others by what they see and experience. They were not born with those beliefs or it's in their DNA.

    not if it's true. There can be an argument made that the majority of whites fall into the category of the "closet racist". Hell, I'd venture to say that the majority of American's could fall into that category.

    so the true victims of racism are whites? Is that what you're saying. Cuz, I find it interesting that this is the argument you chose to lead off with in this thread. Nothing about black kids experiences racism. Which is the actual topic.

    Mr. Volunteer,

    there are actually a heck of a lot of them. Off the top of my head, I could only think of the Atlanta killer, the Cleveland killer, and the DC snipers. When I tried to look up their names, I found this:

    https://www.ranker.com/list/black-se...s/ranker-crime

    Two of these guys are suspected of killing over 100 people, and you've likely never heard of them.

    Interesting, when it comes to the realm of serial killing, blacks are overlooked.

    other things that would go along way. Not condoning racism. Or hiding behind absurd talking points to make it appear that whites are really the victims of racism. But yeah, you show a lot of insight on the topic at hand.

    Probably because serial killers tend to target those of own race. White serial killers kill white people. Black ones kill black people. There seems to be much more fuss in the US, with police and media, when white people die, vs. black people. No?
