I read your post about how reverse racism isn't real and I am extremely offended that you would make a whole "PowerPoint" on it and post it for anybody to see. this is offensive to not only white people but to anybody who has any empathy. white people face discrimination and racism day in and day out, maybe not as much as other races but it still happens so you making that post makes you seen like an ignorant asshole
