Systemic Racism: 

A deliberate framework that prevents a person; that is of a certain color, ethnicity, or belief system-- from having access to goods and services that other people have. (e.g: legal system. do we deny representation based by ethnicity? education. do we deny admissions based by color? success: is success guaranteed in the free market?)

No, that is overt racism. 

Institutional racism (also known as systemic racism) is a form of racism expressed in the practice of social and political institutions. It is reflected in disparities regarding wealth, income, criminal justice, employment, housing, health care, political power and education, among other factors.

Subtle difference I know but an important one.

I'm thinking troll, myself.  New member, never posted on any other areas of the site, and no information in his profile.  I'm not going to waste my time engaging.

I thought the evidence supporting this assessment was abundant from the beginning.

Silly me for trying to give someone the benefit of the doubt. 😉

Many gave the benefit of the doubt in spite of the early evidence. It's not silly, it's a progressive POV which promotes that.

Wealth = Result

Housing = offset of wealth: a part of an individual's asset

Income = Result

Criminal Justice = also a Result

Employment = Result

Education = Result

Political Power = Result (from votes)

 

😂 calling it "overt racism now?" Just look at the Chinese people, the descendants of those that built the railroads. Surely they are going around yelling that there is systemic racism while purchasing their million dollar condos in places like San Francisco.

 

Wait. Unless you guys are calling it "racism" for a family to save their money, and investing it all in private education of their children..so that their blood line would get a "head start" compared to other children in this nation?

Yea. It's really racism. I see all the time people "forcing" other people to cause crime here in this nation.

I suppose this made sense to you when you wrote it. "Forcing other people to cause crime" is an interesting but of thinking.

Obviously, it's racism right?

I mean, how can you explain the abundance of minorities in our prison system? (ignore the Asians of course)

You are free and welcome to call it whatever you prefer.

I call it an excuse to not look inwards (or at the mirror), but to place a blame on a "mystical unicorn" that is supposedly out to get minorities.

I just think of it as a fun cat and mouse game; play with the troll!

See how high you can toss the troll in the air!

Fun times.
