Thanks for the definition.
It seems to me unnecessary to qualify this "averse racism" as being white against black. Based on the given definition, it could apply to any two ethnic groups with innate prejudices, could it not?
You might have whites secretly bigoted against blacks, blacks secretly bigoted against Jews, Jews secretly bigoted against Hispanics, Arabs secretly bigoted against Jews, Asians secretly bigoted against all non-Asians, all of them all the while overtly professing universal tolerance and brotherly love. Or any mix of the previous combinations. There is no reason to stipulate that a member of a generally oppressed minority cannot himself be a bigot toward some other group. In fact, there is every reason to believe that a person who believes that he is unfairly oppressed would harbor deep resentments about the perceived oppressions, and manifest a reflection of the perceived bias, bigotry, and prejudice in kind, tit-for-tat.
Perhaps a less-charged, less-accusatory, milder way of stating the situation would be to say that people do indeed hold within their hearts that bigotry is bad and tolerance and acceptance and equal treatment are the right attitudes to hold, but due to the way they were raised or influences exerted on them through life, they have deeply embedded, almost subconscious biases against some "other" group. Most of them probably truly wish to be fair and bias-free, but the old jokes and slurs and slang they heard from their parents and friends while growing up lurk within and are never completely forgotten.
The biggest obstacle to a unified culture is separatism and refusal to assimilate into a unified culture. People living in the UK as citizens should all self-identify as British. There should be no thought of describing oneself as a White Brit or a Black Brit or an Arab Brit. British is British. When a person becomes a citizen of a country, he accepts that country's culture and values and lives within the society.
Insomuch as this has occurred in America, mostly in large cities at the middle-class level and up, the levels of racial tension have dropped dramatically. Small rural towns lag behind the progressiveness of the large cities. Complete integration into society and willingness to drop a separatist manner of speech and dress that differs from those of the majority facilitates unity of culture and promotes a sense of togetherness. Groups that insist of wearing non-American clothing styles in public and who cultivate an insular patois or heavy accent that the majority cannot understand are working against the unification of the culture into a cohesive whole.

America is rapidly becoming a majority-Hispanic country. In our last census, Hispanics number more than 50% of the population of children aged three years and under. In a very few years, European-whites will become a minority in America. This feels threatening to many whites, and understandably so... losing the majority position to a group that was not treated well when they were a minority causes unspoken fears of repercussion for past sins, and also a grief for a culture that seems like it may be swallowed whole by Mexican culture and language. This fear and regret will be the cause of increasing racial tensions between Hispanics and both blacks and whites who have unspoken but strong fears and resentments about this fast-growing segment of the population.
Mutual bigotry between Hispanics and blacks is becoming a major problem, coming close to eclipsing the old established black-white tensions. Blacks are bigoted against Hispanics because they feel that after fighting for their equality for generations, just as they are within reach of their long-held goals, a new minority slipped in and simply out-numbered them, and the Hispanics don't have all the emotion and hard-learned lessons of the Civil Rights movement that whites learned through the past decades.... they are simply prejudiced against black people, culturally, and see nothing wrong with that. I can see how this would seem maddening to blacks... it's like almost needing to start from scratch in the battle for cultural equality.
All the pent-up resentment that minorities hold against Caucasian Americans will become obsolete soon, as the new Hispanic-majority generations come of age. I would not be surprised to find whites and blacks united together as the resentful underdogs in the new Hispanic-Latino-Spanish America.
Learn Spanish! And you, in the UK.... learn Arabic!
