Some of my best friends are white.", because that is just something that you shouldn't say after writing an article that says "... white people are all racist..." "... almost all of Britain's people are racist..." then throwing in dumb comments like "... treating black people like guinea pigs?"
    I hate articles that try to bring da white man down, and ones that try to bring the black man down. There is no use for these articles, no one will ever learn anything about them, and the creators of them, while trying to "defend" may I say, their own race, while being obviously crude and saying untrue or over exaggerated things about the other, is most definitely racist or acting racist.
    First off I would like to applaud you for reading the whole article

    As to your analysis, I would like to point out a few thing

    1.)When concluding his article with "I can't be racist, I have white friends", hes was mocking fun at the common responses that white people give to black people when being approached about racism. Comments like, "I'm not racist, my best friends black" or "I'm not racist, I'm dating a black girl." The point was to make the reader say/think "that sounds so stupid" and I guess he succeeded because thats exactly what you just thought.

    2.)In his intro he was merely quoting a previous statement made by someone about all British people being racist. The guy who made this statement was under huge criticism for a while but Joseph Harker wanted to take it a step further and pose the question, are all white people racist? The point is, noone ever stops and thinks about ideas that might sound ludicrous and thats what hes doing.

    3.) When referring to blacks as guinea pigs he was just correlating black people to that of experiment guinea pigs because in a sense black people in that instance were used in an experiment without their approval.

    Yes, I know the intro was a quote from some British official. But he still supported and entertained his thought in a good manner, still "defending" his race while still being negligent to the others' thoughts.
    Yes I know that the guinea pigs was an allusion to something, but it wasn't an "experiment" (in my terms, at least.), but you still have a point. I wasn't really replying to the article itself, but all articles of this nature.

    Moral of the story: All whites are racist, even if they don't know it.

    Only people in power can be racist because they have the ability to effect everyone else's realities. Thus, whites are the only racists.

    The question is, do you advocate for the oppressed or do you sit and watch silently as they suffer.

    Not much i can do about racism but to just live life as how it is. All i can do is affect the people like me. Still, its not enough for a true change about racism since i doubt you can change that.

    So basically you're a moderate. Moderates are the people who scare me the most, they stay silent in the midst of adversity simply because it doesn't affect them. They do nothing.

    These are the people that perpetuate racism, not the blatant racists.
