Can Black People Be Racist?
“There is an element of whites who are nothing but cold, animalistic racists. That element is the one that controls or has strong influence in the power structure. It uses the press skillfully to feed statistics to the public to make it appear that the rate of crime in the Black community, or community of nonwhite people, is at such a high level. It gives the impression or the image that everyone in that community is criminal.”
– Malcolm X, speech at the London School of Economics on Feb. 11, 1965
Black people cannot be racist. We could possibly be prejudice, but the power dynamics of the system of white supremacy proves that Black people do not have the ability to oppress other races. Malcolm teaches that racism uses a system to oppress and hold power over a person based on their race.

  1. The question of black people being racist imo can be likened to a great river and it's tributaries..while individual whites or anybody else's anti-black prejudice can link up to the great river that is the system of white supremacist ideology; black people's individual anti-white prejudice cannot 'link' up to this system. If anything, it is thwarted, subverted and negated by that 'great river or system'. So calling black people racist is just another way that whites try to negate the centuries old system in place and try to reduce it to just a few 'individuals' personal prejudices. It's a false equvialency. We are all INDOCTRINATED into the system of white supremacist ideology. ALL OF US. Black, white and otherwise. Some of us thankfully evolve, study and ultimately reject it as the falsehood it is; but there are also many who accept it without question.

  2. we tried in america and it was working, We were working thru our problems, all that stopped with the assassination of jfk., dr king, rfk. cointelpro, the cia, under nazis and ther american traitors.
