As Western Kentucky University students demand that blacks be given free tuition to offset the problems of America’s systemic racism, it’s time for some frank talk about race in the United States.
Simply put, systemic racism isn’t made up. It’s real. But our political fights aren’t coming close to addressing the insidious source. It’s embedded into every successive generation of Americans by our own public education system. We teach our kids to embrace the racist ideology of Darwinism, and then act stumped when it becomes systemic and flourishes.
If you want to solve systemic racism, this is where you have to start. If you aren’t willing to start here, just clam up about the problem you’re a part of. That’s the topic of this week’s spectacular 414 Project video.
