When articles start "A majority of young people believe racism is more a problem for previous generations than it is for their own. ", I always wonder why the don't Include with "Americans" as it would be so much more accurate. And then the article goes on to say "One example of this “cloudy perception” is the belief by half of white Millennials that discrimination against whites has become as big a problem as discrimination against people of color, the network notes." so maybe millennials are just, well, stupid.

Racism works both ways I have heard of cases where black people mostly teenagers have referred to white people as honkies palefaces and white arse.It seems that no race is safe from abuse.
