300+ years of the United States not only failing to help black people, but oppress, jail and financially strangle them to the point where the hole is so deep there's almost no way out. A total disinterest in black lives compounded by time = systemic racism. It's why the average net worth of a middle class white couple is 10x that of a middle class black couple.
Discrimination based on race and ethnici ty takes many forms. The United States has made progress in eliminating some of the legalized racial discrimination of years past such as slavery, Jim Crow laws, “separate but equal” schools, and
prohibitions on voting or owning land. But the compound disinterest in black lives has taken its toll in things like the formation of "ghettos" due to redlining and school performance and test scores being almost distinctly tied to income levels.
