    But that defies the OP's Rothenberg's definition of racism requiring institutional support. Those four surely got it from somewhere in society, but society, or at least the police and justice system is against them.

    And we probably ought to get a few definitions correct first as well.

    This social construct garbage needs to be tossed.

    Genotype creates a phenotype. Until we can identify and agree on the obvious, no meaningful conversation on race can or will occur.

Why do you think it took so long for the laws against miscegenation to be removed from the books? Because the south was rife with the ideology that you described above. Every move a WN/WS makes has that end game as part of the problem. A good example is how so many want to disband the department of education. Why? because it allows too much mixing of the races, but that is not the message that you can speak to the masses with, so you use terms like "vouchers", or "homeschool". This is why it's important to listen to people when they talk, because usually you will get to the underlying truth sooner or later.
    If you think homeschooling and vouchers rooted in racism, I'm going to have disagree with it.

    If anything, it is a well earned distrust of government.

    Actually. Remind me. I have a good encyclopedia that covers race in great detail.

    It is an older world book but it does a great deal of justice to the topic.

    I rescued it from the library dumpster.
