I think I see more discrimination and racial hatred being expressed towards these minority "white" people (and this is being done also by other white people) than what is done against any other ethnic minority. And yes, white people in America are now officially a "minority race" due to population increases. People from the Black community are proud to form their own communities just as do the Latinos, Jewish, and the Asian minorities. Nobody would dare say that any of these minority communities are racist...but in some ways they can be extremely discriminatory against other ethnic minorities, especially those who are white. For example, White people who live in NYC can be treated quite harshly if they try to "integrate" by living in the Black Harlem area. They will be the prime scapegoats and race-crime victims. It is only natural that people of any ethnic community prefer to live amongst their own kind. Even Jewish people strongly prohibit marriages between Jews and non-Jews. Fascist bigots come in all colors and religions, not just White.What seems to be occurring nowadays is that the only people who are not allowed to feel good about their racial identity is the White race. Its Ok to hear about "Black Power" or Black Culture in all of the media forms, but if a White person were even say that he/she liked themselves as being "White" or are proud of their racial heritage, they are immediately labelled as "racist."
