Racism is capitalism.

Capitalism is simply an economic system where individuals own the means of production. It’s about as egalitarian as you can get.

That said, capitalISTS can of course be racists, and in the US, there’s no doubt that white people have a substantial head start in their ownership of the aforementioned means of production.

You are unaware of policy that drove dollars to create white jobs to feast on black children, women and children inside so called nonprofits — now for profit orgs as well. Since 1965 — ensuring that brake pads were thrust on Black growth and strength. All this after Black Wall street.

I have no idea what you’re alluding to. You’ll have to rephrase that using different terminology for me to grasp your references.

The insecurity and fear of Black equality cripples dialogue and is crippling the nation. So deep is the fear of what it would be like should the chains truly be removed.

I’ve been in business for pushing 40 years, mostly in large tech. I have never met anyone who was afraid of black equality; in fact, all the hiring managers were actively recruiting black (and latino) technical talent wherever and whenever it could be found. Which is not easy, it should be said.

I have no idea what your life experiences are, so I can’t comment on them.

What I can comment on is my own life experiences, and therefore can only say that your above paragraph is diametrically opposed to those experiences.
