Rae’s Rules to Remember #51: Reverse Racism Does NOT Exist

This is going to be super quick because it’s really quite simple to explain (and to understand).

Usually people who claim to be victims of “reverse racism” are white. By “reverse” they mean that as the majority, someone has said something against them because they are white.
