Thing is, it’s implicit. But being implicit, it’s invisible except through its effects. But these effects might not be dramatic. So, the implicit systemic racist society can be just as equally outraged at the obvious, dramatic expressions of racism as those who deal with the daily effects of being within an implicitly systemic racist society as the targets. But then day-to-day live continues. Barriers are usually quiet and if you say anything about the barrier, the voices that say back, “No, its not racism because it’s not that dramatic thing we agreed with you on” feel justified continuing their behaviors for they’re not suffering with the effects.
