The only thing these losers have going for them is that they truly think they are better than someone else...That is some sad shit right there.{#Snooty}

I want to emphasize that I think white Americans have gone through quite radical changes in their attitudes, and that we’re talking about a more likely 25 percent of Americans who are hardcore racist, but I think most Americans have quite decent views about race.

But sociologists have argued that while some whites may have liberal views, a lot of them are not prepared to make the concessions that are important for the improvement of Black lives.

Living on the Best Coast, our local news is full of "another attack on an Asian" but I notice that the don't mention the race of the person doing the attacking. 
I think it's starting to become pertinent because in every video they've shown, the Asian is being attacked by a black person. I'm happy to hear if that's incorrect.

I just can't be arsed to watch those videos. Printed media is much more efficient for conveying information... or misinformation. At least a summary of wtf the video is about would help.

Todays inequality partially reflects yesterday's racism. 

Racism is inequality (social disparity), but inequality isn't necessarily racism (could be based on sex, gender, class, etc.)

Again, you are missing the point.

From your link
Institutional racism, also known as systemic racism, is a form of racism that is embedded through laws within society or an organization.

I already acknowledged its possible certain organizations in the U.S. could, but not definitively, be defined as having a systemic race issue, e.g. the police and now maybe the military (among many other problems both these organizations have).

But U.S. society itself is NOT systemically racist.

When you have racism embedded in several institutions/organizations, it then follows that it is systemic in your society, i.e. in those systems needed to run a society.

"In a video, CNO Adm. Mike Gilday said, "Over the past week, after we've watched what is going on, we can't be under any illusions about the fact that racism is alive and well in our country. And I can't be under any illusions that we don't have it in our Navy."

"Army Gen. Mark A. Milley condemned systemic racism saying, "There is no place our armed forces for manifestations or symbols of racism, bias or discrimination," during testimony before the House Armed Services Committee this afternoon."
