That would be grossly oversimplifying things. For example a Starbucks Enthusiast and a Dunkin’ Donuts enthusiast is not the same even though they boast a brand of coffee. Starbucks developed in response to Dunkin’ Donuts. There is backstory, history and competition all wrapped up in it. That alone doesn’t qualify them as simply coffee makers. There is certainly more to it than that and one is perceived to be more authentic than the other.

And in this instance racism is the antecedent to reverse racism. It is over-simplistic error made often to make it seem like racism and reverse racism is the same. It is not and the latter is oftentimes imagined or inauthentic to be truly called racism — when no power or influence under this social construct can be tangibly seen extracted from it.
