Racism that has been deliberately built into systems that govern and organize our lives including education, courts, laws, constitution, law enforcement, etc. that deprives and inhibits the progress of Black Americans from colonization to present day.
This was the central theme of White Rage, that describes the numerous and horriffic acts taken at every level of society to enforce slavery, inhibit freedom, and systemically undermine progress of Black people even after events like the Emancipation Proclamation, passing of the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments, and Brown v. Board of Education.
