Actually, I think the word "racism", which is misunderstood by many people to just mean "prejudice", because they attribute it to anyone who makes a racial distinction. What it really means is a system by which the race in power uses that power to disadvantage all who are not members of that race. Black people have never had that kind of power in America (not even with a black in the White House). Are a lot of black people suspicious of, resentful toward, angry at white people? Yes, sure. But that never stopped any white person from getting into college, or getting a job, or getting a loan. White people are not impacted by what black people think of them. Blacks, however are very much impacted by what white people think of them.
I think the better frame here is "white supremacy". That is the cultural framework in which America was formed. It came from the English and Spanish invasion of the Americas, and the subsequent colonization of most, if not all, of the rest of the planet. "The sun never sets on the British Empire" meets "the white man's burden". What we are seeing today in the middle east is also a consequence of that same white supremacy that felt entitled to carve up their traditional lands for the convenience of European powers.
So to avoid confusion, I'm just using white supremacist to describe these people. It is far less ambiguous.
