"Unlike White racism, which is largely based on an inherited belief that White is superior to Black, Black racism, if it truly is a thing, is borne from experiences within a system created and controlled by White supremacy."

That reminds me of something I said maybe 10 - 15 years ago. Pretty much the same idea. Great thinkers think alike. Somebody else probably said it even before that.

It's all so obvious. Black people have always had to work among white people. Whereas white people generally are not forced to live in black neighborhoods, and so most of what white people see as they drive thru neighborhoods that are predominently black is a cariacature.
