There's this fallacy invented and propagated by the far left (and part of Black Conspiracy Theology), meant to undermine America, called "Systemic Racism" (aka Institutional Racism): the idea that racism in ingrained into the culture and legal or corporate policies.
While it is true that Democrat party was founded on Andrew Jackson and his Indian extermination campaigns, and Democrats created a lot of institutional racism with their KKK, Jim Crow laws, Woodrow Wilson, or in the 30's with FDR's New Deal, Social Security, Wagner Act (which excluded as many blacks as possible). Republicans have been trying to wipe it out since before the Civil War, and including the Republican civil rights acts of 1957, 1960 and 1964, the Fair Housing Act of 1968, the Equal Employment Opportunity Act of 1972. For my entire lifetime, there's pretty much nowhere for institutional racism to legally hide: every attempt is rooted out and eliminated. There is the exception of Democrats false flag of "affirmative action" (anti-majority racism). AA is really just a way for Democrats to keep their racism by shifting their racist hate from blacks to racism against Asians and Whites. Look at any College Admission to a Liberal School and they'll have ways to use race as a qualifier. It's how fake Indian Elizabeth Warren was able to get into Harvard. But with the exception of anti-white/asian policies, there are no policies (official or unofficial) that allow cops (often minorities) to assault civilians based on the color of their skin (and any historical exceptions have been rooted out and prosecuted by various federal agencies).
Despite all recent evidence is that police abuse is actually less common against blacks (relative to murder rates), every time there happens to be a police (or civilian) abuse problem against someone who is black, the old leftist tropes are trotted out in order to divide us for political gain -- while similar assaults against Whites, Latinos or Asians are ignored. Once you get past the surface Fake victims like Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Alton Sterling, Micah Johnson, OJ Simpson, Philando Castile, Rodney King, Sandra Bland, fall apart as being racially motivated. But the lie was propagated by the left, their activists (BLM, Antifa, Occupy, etc), and their media, because it divides us and undermines our country, and brings us closer to being like Kosovo (and the violent revolution that at least some on the left crave). Finally, when an obvious abuse of power video came out (George Floyd) the nation was ready to burn, and the DNC and their operatives were there, flinging matches. The rioters, protestors, DNC operatives and their media all propagated the same lies (1) that this was an institutional problem (not individual) (2) that the officer wouldn't have equally abused a White, Asian, or Latino that was resisting arrest, in the exact same way (3) that justice was already being served against the perpetrator (Officer Derek Chauvin), without any marches, riots or looting necessary in the first place. Americans are united in that we all oppose abuse of power of any individual (Black or White), where the Democrats succeed in dividing us is that many don't believe the lie that this problem is systemically ingrained in our legal code, and that the solution is supporting violent radicals (and rioters). The reason these events are newsworthy is because of how rare they are.
One of the key things to remember is that Republicans have been fighting the Democrats on the root cause for decades: Police Unions getting Qualified Immunity for Police Abuse. Basically, this is the idea that ignorance of the law is not a defense for YOU... but if an officer enforces a mistaken understanding of the law, they are immune from prosecution, as long as their mistakes are "reasonable."
The system is against poor brown people.
|Racism is everywhere just look at OJ Simpson, Rodney King, Henry Louis Gates, Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Anton Sterling, Philando Castile Eric Garner, Sandra Bland and so on. Cops are murdering black people for no reason. The SPLC claims hate crimes are up. Atrocities happen to innocent minorities every day. We need the federal government to stop this!||While the Democrats did create many racist programs in the past, and it is far from perfect today, it generally favors minorities (institutional racism against Whites and Asians). Anyone familiar with the stats/math knows the lie that blacks are gunned down disproportionate to crimes. Those victims are usually examples of dumb people winning stupid prizes. Whites, asians, arabs or latinos would have been gunned down in the same situation. And the reason they are newsworthy is because they're so rare. The reason bad examples make News, is because they can't find better examples. The SPLC is an example of leftists scaring the gullible for money.|
While the invention of institutional racism is required to be a gullible far lefty, the truth is more nuanced. Democrats have pushed for racist policies in the past, because otherwise the culture wouldn't have been racist enough. Republicans usually got them stopped or fought against them. And most of the abuses today, are still based on the left trying to divide us for votes. But think about their logic in this, "We gave the government too much power, and it abused it against minorities. We need to give the government more power to fix it!". Are you seeing the problem? The governments job is to protect individuals (not groups) from mob justice -- not to be a tool of it. Examples of leftist silliness with regards to race: Institutional Racism : 10 items

|Affirmative Action - Affirmative Action is to pretend that Will Smith or Barack Obama's kids, have fewer opportunities as connected black millionaires than some poor, white, son-of-meth-head in Appalachia, or some Asian boat persons kid who came here with nothing but a language/culture barrier, by nature of their skin color -- so they should get a special advantages in life, like college admissions. An idea so stupid and racist that it could only appeal to the far left.
|Black Lives Matter - |
|Fake Race Crimes - The FakeHate grievance industry is so broad, that they are branching out, and have to have multiple divisions. Hey, you get what you incentivize. and the virtue signaling left rewards victimhood -- so people are lining up to join in. This is just the subset of FakeHate that is specifically about fake racial crimes.

|Systemic Racism (Best Arguments) - If you can look at both sides best arguments (and counter-arguments), not cherry picking their worst or exaggerating their points, we can usually deconstruct which is appealing to reason/facts, and which to emotions/disinformation. Fortunately, the highly funded left has good, polished videos like thier best arguments on systemic (Institutional) racism and Charlie Kirk did a pretty good deconstruction of the flaws in their reasoning, and it's pretty easy for the non-gullible to see through the fundamental flaws of their argument. Their points are:
Better explanations for each of these problems are culture, family values, dual parent homes, gangs and discipline. So their argument is a fallacy and the problems are not primarily racism.

|Tired of suppressing my whiteness - Salon ran a stupid race-baiting article by Priscilla Ward, but I know, I repeat myself: it was Salon. Still, her racist polarizing diatribe, made me want to retaliate in kind, re-living a mostly true tales of woe and racism in my past, in a parody of her article. Just to point out there's a whole lot of backstory in others lives that we may not know.
