For anyone finding themselves unable to get examples of "systemic racism" from others, I found the following can help them see the TYPE of examples we are looking for as evidence of systemic racism.
Suppose I assert that our country has a systematic bias in favor of innocence over guilt built into its social / legal fabric. If asked to provide examples of this supposed "systemic innocent-ism" I could point to things like:
1) police are required to read Miranda Rights under conditions that favor ensuring innocent people are not unjustly convicted;
2) accused citizens can receive a court-appointed lawyer to argue their innocence
3) "innocent until proven guilty" is a phrase known by almost all citizens as being a bedrock principle of our legal system
4) our Constitution's 5th Amendment goes so far as to potentially protect actually-guilty citizens by erring on the side of protecting innocent citizens
If racism is as systemic as "innocent until proven guilty" then people...
I am thankful for my Heavenly Father and for everything that he does for me. I am thankful for Jesus Christ, for his atonement and mercy. For His Gospel. For the scriptures, prayer, a living prophet.
I am thankful to live in this wonderful country with its inspired Constitution.
I am thankful that families can be together forever and for temples.
I am thankful for all you awesome people and for your kindness and friendship, even though we haven't met in person.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all! #givethanks
