Give me an example of systemic racism in America.


Slavery, Jim Crow, Redlining, Segregation, Gerrymandering, building a wall on one border in particular..... etc.

The problem with this question is that there are so many examples, many of which are easily apparent, that you really don't know where to start. Here's two you can answer.

- Black Americans own about one tenth the wealth of white Americans. Even college degrees don't close that gap; median wealth for black households with a college degree is about 70% of white Americans without a college degree. Why do you think these gaps exist?

- According to the Department of Justice, in 2018, the imprisonment rate of black males was 5.8 times that of white males, while the
imprisonment rate of black females was 1.8 times the rate of white females. Why do you think that is?

Tree, Did you think a 4th Dave Rubin video would do the trick?

Tree, true or false - America has solved racism. And if your response is some kind of "the magic 8 ball says the evidence isn't clear," then fine, that's your opinion. But it's a non-answer and a foolish opinion in the minds of most people. You don't really needs stats, you need a functioning pair of eyes and some common sense.

Josh and macphisto would say because of single-parent households.

They would, of course, fail to ask the follow-up question: why are there more black single-parent households? What historical and social forces might give rise to that phenomena?

Guys, he’s tree___ trolling. He’s done this in virtually every thread he’s posted in. He’s nothing but a racist troll. Stop giving him the time.

The funny thing is that I'm actually asking for evidence and if I see it I will believe it I have never once said that any skin color is inferior to another skin color. Remember what racism is?

Only you know what's truly in your heart, friend. At the very least you're showing an anti-left attitude (rather than a pro-something attitude), and you're certainly not the first person to be blinded by this. The worst thing about the last 5-10 years isn't really Trump, it's watching the right half abandon everything they claimed to believe because they feel threatened by the left (which is obv why we have Trump now).

OK; what's causing it if not systemic racism?

I don't know what's causing it, but it's for damn sure not the thing I don't like!
