Breaking Down the Illusion of Systemic Racism—Wilfred Reilly on Breonna Taylor, Riots & Beyond

“Every system you could possibly think of produces some kind of racial or sexual or class discrepancy. And this allows the radicals to be radicals eternally, and to claim that everything is racist,” says Wilfred Reilly.

Many point to systemic racism as the cause of these apparent discrepancies, but in most cases, this argument ignores basic facts, says Wilfred Reilly, Associate Professor of Political Science at Kentucky State University. He’s the author of “Hate Crime Hoax” and “Taboo: 10 Facts You Can’t Talk About.” This is American Thought Leaders 🇺🇸, and I’m Jan Jekielek.
