To call out sexism in the workplace isn’t “unconscious sexism,” and it’s similarly rude to say that calling out systematic racism by the police and other institutions is somehow “unconscious racism.” Calling me a racist and then tell me to stop discussing it is, not surprisingly, not a winning tactic to stop the discussion.
Your point has always been that you don’t want your family to believe that there is systemic oppression against minorities. That’s great and laudable, but it is entirely separate from the question of whether there is systemic racism.
The president mentioned it several times in his eulogy — notably the many famous studies about whether John or Jamal will be called back for an interview. Is the president racist for pointing out facts?
I certainly did not say that having black skin is the worst thing that can happen to someone. I pointed out, entirely correctly, that black people are singled out more by the cops. To ignore the dozens, of, studies, on, this, is, again, to be deliberately blind to the reality of it.
Now you can feel free to end the discussion if you like.
