Reader: It ain't "reverse racism." It's just racism.

Posted By on Mon, Apr 7, 2008 at 5:55 AM

Just like a number of contributor's comments to the October 2007 article "Racism Reversed," I found fault with the implications of its title. Racism is racism. Implying that discrimination against whites is the opposite of "standard" racism doesn't aid tolerance or progression. The term itself is bigoted, although I appreciate the content of the article. It was well-written and researched, and would have left me satisfied with Clevescene's reporting had it not been for the hasty headline. Laura Crawford Cleveland Heights
