What were and are the worldwide effects of Jim Crow?

Go on, tell me. If what you say is true I'll believe what you say.
Systemic Racism isn’t just Jim Crow but actually, let me give you a relatively unknown example:
• Black ppl are less likely to receive organ transplants and are more likely to die on a waiting list.

The reasons for different organs are contested but one prevalent problem is with Kidney transplant. Here’s the reason, stemming from a racist study:

Do you have a real source for this? A random meme account being as far from a credible source as it is possible to get?

https://www.google.com/amp/s/prospec...can-americans/

This is also the unit used in the UK and worldwide. Just one random example that ppl aren’t aware of or might never even think of, so much more.

Thanks for the link though. I do recall hearing about this a while ago but it fell off the reading list somewhere unfortunately.
An example of what exactly sorry? This might just be my interpretation but this seems like a scientific error as opposed to racism?

Jim Crow was the main form that post-slavery institutional racism took in America - the Democrat lawmakers who put it in did so as a way to reinforce white supremacy.

Can't say im familiar enough to comment on the experiment past noting that the word racist is not even mentioned in the article you sent.

Every race has a homeland

Except White people who have to become a minority in every country because its "Racist" to resist


Racism is just a tool to used be used by non-Whites against White people. It doesn't apply to Whites since, as you all say you can't be racist towards Whites.

If thats the way non-White people want it, then **** you.
You are our enemy and we wil have our revenge.

Right, remind me what party the Southern Democrats were members of? For an extra bonus point name me 10 Congressmen or Senators who left the Democrats for the Republicans at the time of the ”party switch”.

Still being naughty. The ideological shift is clear in political realignment: the Republicans of the last half century reflect the conservativism of the old Southern Democrats more than even the most conservative of their Democratic contemporaries.

But really it just makes little sense to fix parties to any ideology when the parties are always in ideological flux. Even now the Republican party has quickly moved away from neo conservatism and into Trumpist populism while the Dems are likely heading towards the left and away from neo liberalism despite ol' Biden's nomination.

I'd say that a two party system makes little to no sense in a country as ideologically diverse as America and that lumping, say, Dubya and the QAnon woman from Georgia or Biden and AOC in the same party isn't going to work out.

Hi all, I would recommend checking out The Equiano Project on YouTube and Facebook. It involves discussions with people from many walks of life who discuss the concepts of race (specifically, transcending it or at least changing the narrative to something which doesn't involve seeing absolutely everything through the lens of your skin colour), arguing against decolonising the curriculum, and defending free speech and expression. There's also an interesting bit of discussion on the fact that we are importing American race issues here, in a country which didn't even have lawful segregation or Jim Crow. It's a real pity White Fragility is being treated as a sacred text which no one can even question.
