The assymetrical nature of racism means that it's literally impossible to be racist against white people. There literally isn't a thing that could happen, at least in America, that is honest-to-goodness racist against white people. You can be racially prejudiced against white people. It might be a little shitty, but it's seriously not a problem to call a white guy Jimmer every once in a while.
Dogs how can you still not get that you just straight up cannot be racist against white people. The reason us white people have the stereotype of being the establishment is that we are the establishment. You can't get around that.

In instances such as this, where white is not the dominant culture, then yes it is possible to be racist against white people. Now some will point out that it all takes place in America, but we are not talking about political power and oppression, or job hiring practices. We are talking about a community or locale where being white means you do not have power. I bring it up in reference to this issue because in the story mentioned on this podcast it sounded as if being white on that specific court put the person in a position of being the weaker culture.
And before anyone questions it, I am of a very mixed racial background and was not seen as white (luckily at that school)
