Okay.

Since I can’t fully gauge your level of erudition, I will have to educate you a bit on the accusation of racism.

To accuse a black person of racism is incongruous. You may want to use the term prejudice, given the profound complexity of the word, “racist.”

Racism comes with a degree of power that a great number of Black people in white society don’t have. To be racist is to enact policies that exclude, strip deny people of their dignity and the right to exist.

It’s exactly why the practice of redlining exists, it is precisely the reason for a white dominated police force, which kills black people and gets away with it.

It’s exactly why bodies such as the IMF and the world bank have so much power and it is also why the United States has pursued a policy of orchestrating coups around the world with impunity.

To accuse a black guy of who writes about inequality of being racist, is simply a non-starter.
