I have encountered some. Sometimes black children will not respect or listen to a white teacher. White woman are not strong authority figures for black children.
I'd venture to say that there are racist people from every ethnic background. Your question unfairly categorizes an entire race, not individual people. I think the better question would be, "Can a black person be racist?"
I agree with this 100%.
No group is standing on "holy ground" when it comes to discrimination and racist beliefs.
We all have our crosses to bear.
The answer is yes, and viciously so, based on the polar bear games, knock out games and others where blacks target anyone paler than them for assault.
Ironically enough, this question is pretty damn racist itself. Racism isn't tied to any particular race--it sprouts on a person-by-person basis.
Racism means that a race has the power through its practices and policies to control the socioeconomic and sociocultural means and outcomes of another race. When a particular or the dominant race practices racism, that race has the power to control the education, housing, health, and related factors of the subordinate or less powerful race. In the context of that definition, Blacks in America and in most of the industrialized Western nations do not have the socioeconomic nor sociocultural means/power to be racists. A Black person can be highly prejudicial, even discriminatory, against a non-Black person; however, the Black person cannot exert a measurable effect upon the non-Black person's education, housing, health, and related concerns as the former has no socioeconomic nor sociocultural power.
Racism is like a busy freeway and should not be defined by a single lane of cars, of one color, going one way.
I was watching a documentary on Sidney Poitier last night where a clip of one of his movies was highlighted. The dialogue went something like this. He was asked why he took no pride in being black or identifying as black by a black woman. His reply was--paraphrase- I am more than black I am a man. Morgan Freeman, Bill Cosby and Dr. Ben Carson have given similar accounts.
Perhaps, there is a message here for all f us. To take it a step further, being a man is only half of the equation and being human is the full equation.
Your other question about rap answers this one. Personally, some of the worst racists I've had the misfortune to deal with were black.

Black People are All Shades And Colors So, What Makes A Black Person Black?

We're all racist in some ways. But racism by white people seems to be more newsworthy and gets more attention than racism by others. There are many people who work hard to not do anything to offend their fellow human, but it's impossible to escape prejudice - it's hardwired into our...

Why White Americans who claim to be color blind like to write about African Americans?This is something I've never really understood. They will always start their blog with some example of black people they know and then go on a rant about how black people do this or African Americans do that....
