Activists have been talking about systemic racism for a number of years. However, the problem came to a head in 2020 thanks to the assassination of George Floyd. After this incident, it became much more convenient for politicians to talk about the problem and how to combat it.
And the admission that systemic racism exists enrags a number of Fox News' best-known figures. But no one has made a more ridiculous argument on the subject that Fox Business’s Lou Dobbs. During his Thursday show, Dobbs said it was racist to say that there is systemic racism.
The Fox Business presenter told his audience: "It is – it is a mystery to me – why there is such an absurd notion of systemic racism in every term and why there is what – you know, it is racism itself. I don't understand the word – why the word systemic has to be included in it , except to really support the idea that we need a huge, huge system to deal with, which of course we don't. We just have to be our better selves. "
Joe Biden discussed his plan to fight systemic racism on Tuesday. That same night he tweeted: "America never kept its basic promise of equality for all, but we never stopped trying. Today I am going to take action to promote racial justice and bring us closer to the more perfect union we have always sought. "
