OK to Stereotype Whites?

A student of apparently Hispanic origins seem to think so:

"Whites, as the ethnic majority in the States, are not as subject to racial restriction as other ethnicities. Yes, they can argue that they are also victims of stereotypes and ethnic jokes. But the fact remains that whites, as the majority, still hold more power in society than other races, making it impossible for them to ever be constrained by a stereotype as other ethnic groups are.


So because SOME whites have power, it is OK to stereotype ME? It seems that this writer can think only in terms of racial groups -- making him a racist.
