Racism in America has always been white/non-white, not black/non-black or black/white

I will be arguing that white racial hatred in the USA was directed at all non-whites, not just blacks. All non-whites received the worst end of the stick. People of all non-white races got lynched. From the unpunished 1891 New Orleans lynching, the 1930 unpunished Indiana lynching, to the unpunished attacks on Japanese homes in California, to the unpunished lynching of Charles Thurber in North Dakota, 1882, to Lincoln's wars again Sioux and his attempt to deport non-whites, bigotry was geared towards all non-whites.

Slavery has taken a major effect in our society, but to argue your point, in history white men and women have been slaves. During the period of slavery there was nearly 10,000 free black slaves, which most of them owned black slaves themselves.

Not true... racism was bought to America because Europeans (especially Protestant and Jews from Northern European countries) had feelings of superiority towards other races, white lead them to oppress the Native people and steal their land.

but to argue your point, in history white men and women have been slaves.
Sir, read my question. It's about white racism against non-white (hence "white/non-white") as opposed white or non-black racism against blacks ("black/non-black";"black/white")

During the period of slavery there was nearly 10,000 free black slaves, which most of them owned black slaves themselves.
It's not the issue at hand here sir.

Racism has affected all non-whites in America




All non-black victims of white lynching.
I didn't add any black photos cause the main emphasis here is other races who were victims of lynching.

Anyways, my opponent also hasn't mentioned the oppression of Japanese. The creation of labor unions specifically to make Japanese-made items have less value.
