      Just asking if you (as a White person) would feel very offended if being called "White" by other people like Asians, Indians, Blacks. Because some folks really do feel upset about it.

      It's never racist if it's against white people.

      Fact.

      I would not be offended myself if someone called me white no, there are far worse things I could be called other than white I guess :)

      But do you feel like it should be "censored" for example, in a debate or something? Like the person who said it should be
      "banned" for it? E.G on a board, blog or etc? Someone got banned for "insulting Whites"?

      No I do not feel that if someone called someone white they should be banned or it should be censored as I do not see it as a racist word. I use the term whites and blacks all the time to describe people of different races, it's a way to describe someone who is of a different colour. There are far more worse things that someone should be banned for or it should be censored when said of which I will not mention on here as they are what I would call racist words.
