Sorry, I’m at work and am just getting back here. Why do you need me to give you a definition? You don’t know what systemic racism is considered?? That’s bs . Look up the definition if you need to.
You have been in this forum long enough to know how these things work and how this can degenerate into a us vs them. It is actually not BS given that some people actually don't believe systemic racism exist.
Now back to your question. If you go by Wikipedia's definition then, I will answer the question. "Is it as pervasive as some will suggest" ?
The very meaning of "systemic" will suggest that it is as pervasive. It means it is baked into the system.
Now, this is where is gets complicated. Some see racism everywhere when that is not the case. Some confuse racism with classism. Others like to think that systemic racism is a left and right issue when that is not often the case. Still, some believe that systemic racism died in the 50s/60s
