Systemic racism is a made up fairy tale

It’s why there is zero statistical direct proof. It’s why the left has to make up stupid videos for Facebook “this is what systemic racism looks like”. It’s why moron Bill DiBlasio can’t use anything but the vaguest of terms to describe examples of systemic racism.

I disagree, when mainstream media, academia, and the majority of leaders in both parties actively promote and/or aqueiesce to BLM racism, cancel culture (now aimed at American history), and try to stoke a civil war, they are promoting systemic racism against white people.

"Cancel culture" is good to say, because it leaves them in the position of defending the indefensible.

"Systemic racism" is bad to say, because merely saying it gives it a kind of legitimacy.

If it's systemic, name the laws and policies in place that are racist. And who wrote them and voted them in.

The only racist policies and laws on the books that I can think of, is Affirmative Action Rules.

It's almost like nobody here has their "White Discount Card" that merchants take to reduced the price of their goods and services.

Maybe systemic is the wrong word, but I would say white people in America having a few century head start in owning property is pretty good example of inequality. An entire race couldn’t own property in the US for centuries, have bank accounts, get loans, work for a wage, ect. I think that’s a difficult burden to overcome... kinda like being given a few mile headstart in a marathon.

And that’s not even taking into account more recent Jim Crow laws that still existed up to the 1950s. We are only 70 years removed from very specific discrimatory laws on the books. Not sure how you can call fairly recent American history a fairy tale?

Are you unaware that most white Americans are descended from people who came to the US after the civil war?

Also what you are describing as systemic racism isn’t actually systemic racism. This is the definition of systemic racism: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Institutional_racism

Which doesn’t actually exist in the United States at this time.

Exactly and every major organization now has a diversity officer. Companies and other large public and private organizations are firing people for expressing opinions that don’t fit the racist narrative that they are spinning. I understand the resistance to using their newspeak terminology, but the evidence suggests that the globalists and leftists are collaborating to cancel white American culture. If that is not racist, and a systemic problem, then the definition of systemic must have changed.

To me either of the below definitions apply here:

https://www.yourdictionary.com/systemic

“The definition of systemic is something that affects the whole instead of just parts.
When corruption extends throughout the entire government rather than just one or two people, this is an example of systemic corruption.”

https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/systemic

“d : fundamental to a predominant social, economic, or political practice”

The racists are accusing everyone else of racism. Their hypocrisy knows no bounds. We need to call them on it. We cannot bury our heads in the sand and ignore the fact that BLM and antifa, and all their supporters are racist and have spread to every state, and infected nearly every organization in the country.

Asians and Middle Easterners seem to have no problem coming here and building wealth and owning property, so why do Blacks have such a hard time and can't stop whining about it?

Hasn't been true for 150 years. There are people from Africa whose ancestors that didn't have the concept of Currency at all 150 years ago that have immigrated to America and operating MRI machines today.

This Left-wing narrative that White people have had a "head start" over everyone else is too damn old. However, it's obviously an effective strategy to win weak and entitled voters who don't want to take accountability for their own lives and poor decisions. How half the country doesn't see that is beyond me and scares the hell out of me.

White people were behind the Arab and Chinese world in 1200.

Then we leapfrogged over their asses.

We didn't get coddling and welfare from the Caliphate or the Ming Dynasty; Arab pirates and Muslim Mongols were ranging wide over Europe, enslaving millions of Whites.

I found Systemic Racism!




(a) The State shall not discriminate against, or grant preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education, or public contracting.

(b) This section shall apply only to action taken after the section's effective date.

(c) Nothing in this section shall be interpreted as prohibiting bona fide qualifications based on sex which are reasonably necessary to the normal operation of public employment, public education, or public contracting.

(d) Nothing in this section shall be interpreted as invalidating any court order or consent decree which is in force as of the effective date of this section.

(e) Nothing in this section shall be interpreted as prohibiting action which must be taken to establish or maintain eligibility for any federal program, where ineligibility would result in a loss of federal funds to the State.

(f) For the purposes of this section, "State" shall include, but not necessarily be limited to, the State itself, any city, county, city and county, public university system, including the University of California, community college district, school district, special district, or any other political subdivision or governmental instrumentality of or within the State.

(g) The remedies available for violations of this section shall be the same, regardless of the injured party's race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin, as are otherwise available for violations of then-existing California antidiscrimination law.

(h) This section shall be self-executing. If any part or parts of this section are found to be in conflict with federal law or the United States Constitution, the section shall be implemented to the maximum extent that federal law and the United States Constitution permit. Any provision held invalid shall be severable from the remaining portions of this section.[2]



The California Repeal Proposition 209 Affirmative Action Amendment may appear on the ballot in California as a legislatively referred constitutional amendment on November 3, 2020.

The ballot measure would repeal Proposition 209, which prohibited the state from considering race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education, and public contracting
https://ballotpedia.org/California_Repeal_Proposition_209_Affirmative_Action_Amendment_(2020)

Repealing Prop 209 would bring back Government-directed Racist Treatment in Colleges and Elsewhere to California.

white people in America having a few century head start in owning property


@BoomAndBustCycle you're so very wrong about this that it's comical.

None of my ancestors came here with anything at all. And it hasn't been centuries for me, or the majority of white people in America. Neither of my parents inherited a penny. I inherited $20K.

Black people have been free in America for a longer time than any of my ancestors were here at all. BLACK PEOPLE had the head start in America, not the majority of white people.

And by and large they completely fucked it up by themselves.

Even in slave times it was possible for some determined slaves to get ahead. Read the autobiography of Oludah Equaino. Bought his own freedom, opened a business in the north.

There WAS systemic racism. And it basically fucked over the black culture. First cane the redlining laws, designed to segregate neighborhoods. These were extremely effective in keeping blacks in black areas mostly inner city areas. Then the factory jobs and other jobs moved to the suburbs, and blacks weren’t allowed to find housing out there so they were shut out and the rate of blue collar black employment went from 70% to 30% during the 70s and early 80s. This left blacks with high unemployment at the same time a drug was introduced that hooked the despondent community. It was a short slide from lower middle class to poverty from there, and generational poverty came with fatherless homes, criminal behavior, and despair.
All because of rules that white racists made.

Now these laws have been changed to promote equality and they’ve been fair for at least three decades. But the broken culture remains, and its adherents are only too happy to pull back down any black Americans who wish to rise above their situation. High achieving blacks are ridiculed as sell-outs, uncle toms, and “acting white.” Meanwhile the social conformers are dragged into criminality and low achievement.

And this situation is made worse because everyone knows it, and it imparts a stigma to blacks people at large. They might be law abiding and upstanding citizens and good workers and good family men, but they have to constantly prove that they aren’t like the others of their race. This is exhausting and wrong.

The solution has to be three fold:
1)more jobs have to be available for people (good economy)
2)police have to be better trained for de-escalation tactics, and discouraged from hassling people to try to find something to charge them with. Contact with the public shouldn’t trigger an automatic investigation.
3)culture has to change from the inside out. Bangers need to be rejected and good morals embraced. Church is great for this. People have to be taught how to behave or they’ll behave however they like.

Is this the leftist default when confronted with relevant facts? Link to leftist articles and videos and clam up?

Not one concession that relevant counter arguments are being made, not one acknowledgement of “you know, I haven’t thought of that”.

Instead just double down on the bad ideas.

We’re talking current US society, not 60 years ago, before even the first Gen Xer was born, before I was born.
