Default Re: Racism

Also, calling someone black is not racist, in Africa black-Africans can't really be referred to as anything else. Calling someone African is too vague, as there are Arab-Africans, White Africans, Black-Africans, etc. Sometimes Black-Africans are called Native-Africans, but aren't Arab-Africans and White-Africans native to Africa too? So to get my point through, most of the time calling someone black or white is not offensive, but pending how it is used, "whitey" could be offensive. Someone doesn't have to use a word with intent to cause harm for it to harm someone, just remember that Anthony. Some may take offense to being called whitey, even if it is said sarcastically, they will see it as sardonic, or hurtful.
