Today we are besieged with raucous cries on both America’s streets and its social media platforms, as well as by all too many in the halls of government, to bring to an end what is now termed “systemic racism.” To bring this amorphous demand about, we are led to believe that the systems that formed the very foundation upon which the nation was built must first be destroyed and then reshaped . . . much in the same manner as the South was “reconstructed” after 1865. Those who would call for such a radical and utterly senseless program either fail to grasp, or choose to ignore, the simple fact that the systems they wish to tear down are the very ones that have now allowed racism to be virtually overcome in America.
