Systemic racism is a myth created by Dems, liberals and progressives. A professor at the Naval War College in Rhode Island delivered a lecture to sailors claiming that systemic racism is “in some ways” rooted in classical liberalism, and that a “focus on the individual” perpetuates it — citing Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey in her remarks at the military institution.
Pauline Shanks Kaurin opened her remarks, now available on the U.S. Naval War College channel on YouTube, by telling her virtual audience that “this is not going to be a lecture about the empirical facts of issues of race and gender inequity in this country” and teased that she would be featuring “a quote from the Duchess of Sussex for later.”
“If you’ve been watching CNN, or anything on TV in the last couple of days, you know what I’m talking about,” the professor said in the lecture delivered in March. “If you don’t you should seek that out.” The lecture was given two days after Markle and her husband, Prince Harry, sat down with Oprah Winfrey for a bombshell interview in which Markle alleged that a senior royal had raised “concerns” about the skin color of the couple’s son Archie.
