It’s the whole Daddy Dom kink thing.
Just cried at work to my boss because this has been the worst week of my life and I fucked up everything at work today, cut my finger while cutting limes, fucked up coffee twice because there is so many different sizes of mugs, fucked up money exchange and everyone on the beach is Spanish due to a cruiseboat and I DO NOT SPEAK SPANISH. *cries*

I used to be like that too, until I took some time to educate myself and walk away from my opinionated view that I have been taught all my life.
For those who are wondering (I know you are) I’ll break it down for you real fast. I know the dictionary says that racism is when you believe certain characteristics/things belong to only one culture, and in that sense, yes, everyone can be racist.
However, real racism is a system of group privilege by those who have a disproportionate share of society’s power, prestige, property, and privilege. And in that sense, people cannot be racist against white people. You may be thinking, ‘what, yes they can!’ but please, read this. It explains it very well:
The definition used in anti-racist circles is the accepted sociological definition (which is commonly used in academic research, and has been used for more than a decade now): "racism is prejudice plus power". What this means, in easy language:
A. Anyone can hold “racial prejudice” — that is, they can carry positive or negative stereotypes of others based on racial characteristics. For example, a white person thinking all Asians are smart, or all black people are criminals; or a Chinese person thinking Japanese people are untrustworthy; or what-have-you. ANYONE, of any race, can have racial prejudices.B. People of any race can commit acts of violence, mistreatment, ostracizing, etc., based on their racial prejudices. A black kid can beat up a white kid because he doesn’t like white kids. An Indian person can refuse to associate with Asians. Whatever, you get the idea.
C. However, to be racist (rather than simply prejudiced) requires having institutional power. In North America, white people have the institutional power. In large part we head the corporations; we make up the largest proportion of lawmakers and judges; we have the money; we make the decisions. In short, we control the systems that matter. “White” is presented as normal, the default. Because we have institutional power, when we think differently about people based on their race or act on our racial prejudices, we are being racist. Only white people can be racist, because only white people have institutional power.
D. People of color can be prejudiced, but they cannot be racist, because they don’t have the institutional power. (However, some people refer to intra-PoC prejudice as “lateral racism”. You may also hear the term “colorism”, which refers to lighter-skinned PoC being prejudiced toward darker-skinned PoC.) However, that situation can be different in other countries; for example, a Japanese person in Japan can be racist against others, because the Japanese have the institutional power there. But in North America, Japanese people can’t be racist because they don’t hold the institutional power.
E. If you’re in an area of your city/state/province that is predominantly populated by PoC and, as a white person, you get harassed because of your skin color, it’s still not racism, even though you’re in a PoC-dominated area. The fact is, even though they’re the majority population in that area, they still lack the institutional power. They don’t have their own special PoC-dominated police force for that area. They don’t have their own special PoC-dominated courts in that area. The state/province and national media are still not dominated by PoC. Even though they have a large population in that particular area, they still lack the institutional power overall.
I know it may all sound very strange but the more you read about it,the more it starts to make sense. I was very opposed of this at first, but keep an open mind and read and it will make sense to you as well and you will realize that it actually is very straightforward and easy. ^-^
