Why were white people racist to black people?

The same reason why any race is racist against the other, racism is not just between blacks and whites. There are white people that are racist, there are black people that are racist, there are Asians that are racist, Pacific Islanders that are racist, there are Islamic people that are racists, Native Americans that are racist, Indians that are racist, and the list goes on… In specific to your question asked it is quite a broad question that depends on the individual and there circumstances. It could be because of upbringing for example in Germany during the period of the Holocaust children were taught by society that Jews were not equal to what was considered regular citizens or even human. So a white person may be raised in an environment were black people are not considered worthy. It is also because humans segregate as part of survival technique and every race needs a scapegoat. If your really interested in educating yourself further on the issue I would suggest taking sociology and psychology classes to fully understand the complexity of the issues as white people are also racists against other white people. Black people are racist against other black people, Asians are racist against other Asians and so forth.

Is Eminem racist?

It would be to assume he was not racist because he had a black band, raps with black people, and hangs out with black people. However, Eminem had grew up in a black area. He was beaten for being white. Rap was his only way to fit in. If he had raped with white folks, everyone would see him as a racist. However if he raped with black folks, than everone sees him as a want-to-be-black-person. Eminem has used the "N" word many times and not in a I-wanna-be-black way. If he was racist nobody would care because they see him as part black.

Can black people be racist?

Yes, of course they can. White people can be racist to black or Asian the same way a black person can be racist towards white or Asian people. Racism just means that you believe that one or more races are better than others. It doesn't matter what the races are. Where people get confused is that they mistake institutionalized racism with garden variety racism. While only the prevailing group can express institutionalized racism, any group can be racist in the more generalized sense.
