So I saw this post on reddit the other day, under a question "What's a universal truth that you dont think is widely enough accepted?" One guy said this: Without a doubt there are some aspects of 'black culture' that are detrimental (as there are in any culture) and this poster mentioned it was a 'sizable portion' instead of all, but his assumption that everything is equal, the system no longer holds back blacks or other minorities back in any way and it is now their own fault for any failures is nothing but ignorance and a perspective of white privilege at best, and possibily outright racism at worst. I don't know which it is in this posters case so I'll just assume he simply doesn't know any better, after all media, particularly on the right, misrepresents or outright lies about the facts all the time surrounding this issue. Another poster, steviemcfly, responded with this, with tons of facts about how these things still go on today and links with sources to back up his claims: The obvious truth is that institutional racism still permeates almost every part of American society. By denying that, not only are the direct targets of this being hurt, but by extension it holds the entire society back and makes further progress difficult if not impossible. Just think where we could be as a country if we weren't still fighting these old battles and instead moved beyond them together.
