the fact that we have to resort to the hypothetical “but white people can be judged for their race too” in order to try to justify the statement that racism against white people exists kinda should tell you that maybe there’s something more to this and that maybe hypothetical situations aren’t as important as the daily violent oppression everyone else faces at the hands of white people
yeah white people can be treated poorly because of their race, no one is pretending that they can’t, and to imply otherwise is simply wrong
the point is that a) it doesn’t happen nearly as often b) when it does happen it’s usually in reaction to a lifetime of racial violence and c) it will never be of even close to the same magnitude of oppression faced by people of color
and in forcing the line of thinking to “white people can be hurt because of their color too” you’re kinda taking a serious discussion and turning it into “yeah but it could happen to me too let’s talk about me” just because you refuse to accept that maybe, just maybe, the dictionary definition isn’t a reflection of reality. you refuse to accept it because it doesn’t benefit you.
