Systemic racism is real and has been proven many times. For those saying "i need proof"
Click this link---https://www. Prisonpolicy. Org/graphs/raceinc. Html. If you think this could be fake here's a study I found on the federal bureau of prisons---https://www. Bop. Gov/about/statistics/statistics_inmate_race. Jsp if this still isnt enough---https://www. Prisonpolicy. Org/research/race_and_ethnicity/ ----- https://www. Statista. Com/statistics/816699/local-jail-inmates-in-the-united-states-by-race/
Please note that these are all trusted sources----and do not come at me saying its because black people commit more crime studies have shown that the crime rates are very similar.

You 'did make use of statistics and sources, Which I think is good.
Such as minorities who whiten job resumes get more interviews,

But again, Since it was the comments section, I don't think close examination was used on all sides of every statistic and source the other gave.
I 'do think examples and sources would have more effect in a section of a 'formal debate, Pushing a point of the real and visible examples.

But as Surgeon and brodiescott76 noted, Statistics and examples can be reinterpreted.
I'm 'still a bit unsure on gun debates for example, When people bring up examples and statistics.
They aren't always as clear cut as they might seem.

I put my 'rough opinion of the comment section debate in,
Forums,
Miscellaneous,
Record attempt at most posts.
Post 24, 530

In hindsight, I suppose I ought also have considered use of sources and conduct.
'But as it wasn't a formal debate, I don't mind forgetting those, And just stating my rough opinion.

Well, Since focalmart gave no argument or disagreement, You clearly won.
Though I see their acceptance of the debate, More as a troll move on their part, Intentional or not.

Personally I think your round one could have been improved by your giving an explanation or definition of systematic racism.
As you note in the comments, People have various views of 'what the right definition is.

Would have been nice if someone actually intent on debating had accepted it.

i went back and read the whole debate dr lebronski made some pretty bad arguments but surgeon is yet to debunk the claim that black people are impoverished more.
