Dave Chappelle on Institutionalised Racism

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Racism in the US has never truly been eradicated.  Dave Chappelle said, “Things like racism are institutionalised.  You might not know any bigots.  You feel like, ‘Well, I don’t hate black people so I’m not a racist,’ but you benefit from racism.  Just by the merit, the colour of your skin, the opportunities that you have; you’re privileged in ways that you might not even realise because you haven’t been deprived of certain things.  We need to talk about these things in order for them to change.”
