Racism is "the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior toanother race or races". With that definition, please tell me how

[…] a black person (or PoC) can’t be racist?

Straight: extending or moving uniformly in one direction only; without a curve or bend

Gay: lighthearted and carefree.

Black: of the very darkest color owing to the absence of or complete absorption of light; the opposite of white.

Race: a competition between runners, horses, vehicles, boats, etc., to see which is the fastest in covering a set course.

With those definitions, tell me how they can mean something completely different in a social context. Grow up and stop relying on the dictionary for shit that is out of it’s comprehension. the Dictionary does NOT take into account social meanings or social context of words. 

white people being angry about the incorrect ways that they deal with people of color act like a kid who’s bad at math. Just because you throw different answers at the problem doesnt mean any of them are going to be correct.

it’s like me asking you what 5+5 equals and you tell me 6, then 4, then 8, and the you get mad at ME because you’ve thrown more than one answer at it but you’re still wrong. Then you claim that it’s not a real problem and I’m just making it up because all of these solutions are wrong

What are white people? What defines them? Is it just their skin or something else? If it's their skin and somebody says something bad does that make it racist or not?

Why don’t you ask white people what defines them, and while you’re at it ask them why the need to steal everyone else’s culture in order to “define”  themselves. 

I really do not feel like going to to soc101 and pointing out the extremely basic differences between race & ethnicity and honestly if you don’t know wtf “white” is, you should not even be trying to have a conversation about racism.

No, saying something bad does not equal racism, racism is SYSTEMATIC.
