    Which is why our Lord equates us with some of the dumbest critters on the planet.

      Being an actual racist is pretty much impossible to be ignorant of. Especially in today's society. I keep seeing people say racism is "systemic", but their arguments are flawed, and their sources cherry picked every time I've been given some to look at.

          Given systematic racism, it seems many were and remain ignorant or in denial.

            It's not a "given" though, it is an assertion only at this point. Well, when cherry picking and assertions are all you've got, then I guess you have to make due.

              On this we simply disagree but I'll go with the many experts who have weighted in on this.
