Steve Shaffer There is no lack of comprehension. The disconnect is in how you define racism.
To me it is an active as opposed to passive event. Black people aren’t more likely to encounter X BECAUSE they are black. X happens to black people more often because of Y.
And IMO ignoring the Y, clouds the true issues and limits our ability to solve the actual problems faced by our society as a whole.
As a side note. Computer models, programs, etc. can only return results based on the data entered. People, to a lesser extent react in much the same way.
