In a new interview, Dear White People director Justin Simien and actress Logan Browning explain why it’s impossible for black people to be racist. Logan explains,

Black people can’t be racist. Black people can be prejudice, they can be biased but they can’t be racist. Racism is the oppression of a marginalized group in a society that’s based on white supremacy. If you are a white person, then you naturally benefit from white privilege.

She continued

They have all of the things. There is this one thing, this one word that Black people took and used as a form of endearment and it’s ours, let us have this one word. There’s so much hatred behind it when it comes from the mouths of others and this is something that we’ve turned into a very special casual term not to be used by everyone.
