Why do libs harp on instititutional racism?
quote:

Institutional racism (also known as systemicracism) is a form of racism expressed in the practice of social and political institutions. It is reflected in disparities regarding wealth, income, criminal justice, employment, housing, health care, political power and education, among other factors.

This does not exist on a whole, if any. The worst thing you can be in America today is a poor, uneducated Caucasian man.
And for those complaining that D'Quarvious didnt get a job interview because of his name, don't frickin give your kids these names.
Its no different than not getting face tattoos. It presents an image and whether that image is true or not isn't going to matter when you need to make a good first impression.
I've personally saw at least three examples in my life where African Americans were given preferential treatment during the hiring process where I worked so the agencies could meet certain diversity quotas. This is illegal yet the hiring managers quietly admitted to trying to hire more POC because of pressure from higher ups.
And this shite about people not being able to be racist without having power is utterly and completely ridiculous especially when POC have held most of the major offices in America.
The only "institutional racism" in America is the Democratic party trying to keep their black votes in poverty on the plantation.
I'm beyond tired of these pompous liberal douchenozzles whining about how bad whitey is everytime I turn around when America's racial relations are the best they've ever been. MLK and many of the old civil rights leaders would laugh at the cases of "racism" people are encountering today.
Sorry for the rant.

Blacks haven’t benefited as a class from the government interventions. The interventions can’t be incorrect. Ergo, the “system” is still to blame.

Because you cannot prove it didn’t happen and isn’t happening. To attempt to disprove it just makes one more racist for denying their struggle. It’s a logical trap.

Kind of a self-own you got there.

Seriously. Racism, white supremacy, guns, and free shite for illegals is all they’ve got.

I was at a high school commencement this past May, and one of the graduates was named D’Pravious.

I'm not saying its never happened, I'm saying its not happening today on a whole. Also from that post you linked:

quote:

Asian Americans also experienced redlining, but unlike black Americans they have come to have the highest homeownership rates of any single minority group since the 1970s. Their share of national homeownership is now even with their share of the overall U.S. population — despite the fact that so many live in coastal cities where renting is popular.

Japanese Americans were literally placed in camps during World War II, I dont hear that being thrown around as an excuse.

Exactly. It's vague enough that they can blame disparate results on it even when it can be shown that the opportunities exist for everyone.

re: Why do libs harp on instititutional racism?
Look, I see the OP's point, but you are minimizing the fact that racism still exists. I'll broadly say it like this:

1) racism probably kept blacks down, far more than anything else, from the Civil War to the early- to mid-1980s. This eased up significantly, but yea, there are landlords and hiring managers and others who do, still, commit racist acts. And those are wrong.

2) however, in 2019 America, the black reliance on policies from the current mindset of the Democrat Party are depressing their progress FAR more than any remaining racism that exists.

Not really. I used system in quotes to refer to society at large versus just the government. Substitute “the power.” Or flail away per your usual.

Blacks got redlined way worse.

Blacks were essentially placed in camps for centuries.

Blacks would be better off if they'd been treated as well as Asians.

Redlining is the logical application of actuarial tables.
Teens are more likely to have car accidents than 60 y.o. people. So, their rates are higher.
Women live longer than men so their life insurance policy is cheaper.
Blacks with identical incomes to whites are twice as likely to default on loans. So, they are a greater risk.

They literally received reparations from the US government.

Just seems like this admits racism right up front.

Applying this, even if you think it's applied logically, is institutional racism. Being black does not make a person more likely to default on loans.

Then a teen who is a safe driver is a victim of institutional ageism.
A man who got drafted during Vietnam was a victim of institutional sexism.

So you would agree that charging men more for car insurance is sexist.

Correct. Literally every age limit on anything is institutional ageism. Way to blow the lid off that one.

One more, and you'll be on a roll with your whataboutisms.

Institutional racism is far worse than the two examples you've given, of course. Your mentioning them has added nothing.
