Vic, please read Mav’s comment before you respond.

He didn’t say racism is the cause. He is saying that racism is the result. He is asserting that intentions don’t matter. The results do.

We have a society where the criminal justice system disproportionat affects people based on their race. It affects how likely people are to be pulled over, cited, arrested, prosecuted and how likely they are to be shot and killed by the people that are supposed to serve and protect.

Personally I don’t care if we agree or disagree on whether the term “systematic racism” is the right term. What matters is the results, and that we live in a society that perpetuates those results.
