John Staddon: "How Real Is Systemic Racism Today?"

No time to really comment on this, but it's good.
Stoddon says it's a bad concept, but I disagree. I think it's a pretty good concept--it helps us understand e.g. slavery and Jim Crow. That is: systemic (better: institutional) racism is an actual thing. There just isn't much of it around in the U.S. today. And it's become just another mindless bit of progressive-left jargon, invoked automatically, with no real thought or understanding. And, of course: it's become the central concept in a bunch of untestable (often auxiliary) hypotheses used to prop up leftist race hustling given the fact that there isn't all that much actual racism in the U.S. anymore.
