    It's just a phrase, nobody means it literally when they say it. It's not meant to be analysed in the context of nature/nurture.

    We're allowing Hong Kong citizens born before 1997 because we have a legal obligation to. Boris isn't being kind here. It's not about the "sins of our fathers", it's about a contract we signed with...

    Exactly. Nothing actually changes. The "support" is superficial, but it's still support, as it influences the general public. And the reason it won't create any meaningful change is because BLM are...

    If there's no system, there's no systematic racism.

    But yes, you're right. In the context I use the word, I do believe there's an "invisible power structure". They're not scheming for world...

    Feminists? Where does that come from?

    I can see you just want to reduce the "system" to conspiracy nonsense, using crackpot buzzwords like "Illuminati". I get it, you don't like to acknowledge...

    Oh I see, you think pointing out that people have a choice in their life decisions amounts to "tolerance" of systematic racism.

    I'm not sure what point you're trying to make with this "wealth distribution" thing. It's also quite laughable saying that to me, I have fuck all money and the only assets I have are records.

    White privilege is white guilt. If you realised this, maybe you'd understand why some people, not necessarily racist, take issue with the phrase.

    Black people can step away from these issues too....

    Who do you think is more likely to use their gun to kill someone? A white person? Or a black person?
