    I was not aware of systemic racism in the US until all of the events had unfolded 2019-2020. Because all of this is new to me, I am still trying to wrap my head around what is going on in the US....

    I was not aware of systemic racism in the US until all of the events had unfolded 2019-2020. Because all of this is new to me, I am still trying to wrap my head around what is going on in the US.

    I was, naively, convinced that the work of so many people over decades had resolved most of this nonsense. I have felt ashamed, recently, that this is still a problem in the US. It's profoundly idiotic and disgraceful and yet, when I look at this through the perspective of mega history in the US I am not surprised.

    Just look at the continued effort to marginalize, and I'm being kind, all people of color in the US beginning with Native Americans. Truly disgusting behavior.

      If you haven't seen it yet, Phil Vischer's History of racial inequality in America video is well worth watching. It's incredibly concise but still quite thorough, and it's also very well presented.
