Racism exists, and governmental financial policy helps keep it active. Most of the inner cities are under horrible economic attack and what has happened is it's become an unintentional systematic racism. Too much of a welfare state lowers the actual drive to progress in the market. The drug war is economically destroying the actual ability of drug users to grow out of their habit, as well as creating black market crime. Due to that black market crime, a lot of businesses wont open up shop in the inner city making it harder for people in the inner city to have any actual economic stability.
I believe there is systematic racism, however i think it's an Unintentional outcome of the welfare state, war on drugs, etc etc. the worse thing as a nation would be to blame white people for it rather then understanding too much government does this
