Are we racist when we treat a non-white person better than a white person?
No my friend, that is called equality. Equal treatment no matter what the color of one's skin.
the question is, if you treat non-white better? not "equally"... Nowadays, at least in my country I see many white people afraid of being considered racist so they tend to treat non-whites better (ex: not complaining if a non-white jumps a queue)...
No it's not. Racism is something else. If you treat a no-white person better than a white person, which does not happen often it's to favour somebody which happens all the time. In politics,jobs,etc. Think of the old boys network. business men favouring friends.
Racism is when someone from a different race is treated worse because of the colour of their skin or ethnic background,which is a ridiculous and nasty thing to do..
Treating someone "better" does not automatically make one a racist. It can however be a form of discrimination. Only you as the individual (knows why) you are doing what you are doing.
Some people treat children better than adults, seniors better than younger folks, beautiful people better than unattractive/average looking people.
Oftentimes the person receiving the "better treatment" assumes you treat everyone the same way. They're not going to think "You're giving me the royal treatment because I'm (not) white."
To be honest no one treats (everyone) the same way!
Sometimes the mood someone is in at the time has a bearing.

Don't get me wrong - I know they have to take crap from people every day - I know that.But when...

I come from a white working class background, so I'm pretty familiar with this issue. My parents were not that bad. They colluded with racism without actively promulgating racist views or working up false justifications. They were typical of the low level racists in the UK at the time. The black...
