    Does Systemic Racism Exist Today in America?

    Does systemic racism exist in America Today? I would say no and metswon69 would say yes.
    He'd like this discussed publicly so I created this thread for that purpose. I ask that people read but refrain from participating until the end. I also ask that metswon69 and I come up with a workable frame for the discussion as a precursor to the actually discussion.

    Anything you'd like metswon69?

    Wrestling fans, there might be one or two in here will get this. But no. Cody Rhodes ended it.

    Oh, man. Won't you stop with your obsession with what is and what isn't racism? You don't add anything new to the discussion and usually muck it up with absurdities.
    There are three kinds of men. The one that learns by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.

    on the OP, I'd say ideological racism is not part of the system, but that old race based policies have exacerbated economic issues to the point that what it's called no longer matters. What matters is that people without money are getting consistently screwed and because of past policies a lot of the poor in cities are minorities so whether it's ideological racism or not doesn't really matter. What matters is the results of the current system.

    I think we need a different word for non-ideological racism than just racism.

    You could have added a poll but you know that would probably not turn out well for you if you did.

    Republicans get tired of getting **** canned in debates over and over again.
