This is an outstanding article showing how systemic injustice operates, and how it can be made visible.It applies equally to systemic racism, systemic homophobia, systemic transphobia, systemic sexism, and intersectional inequality (such as that experienced by transgender people of colour).

The simple test is to see if the life chances of a whole group are significantly impacted. A disproportionate number of Black people in prison? Systemic racism. A disproportionate number of trans people arrested for sex work? Systemic transphobia. Young LGBTQ people more likely to commit suicide? Systemic anti-LGBTQ discrimination.

If you don't believe that this is correct, read the article to see how systemic inequality is perpetuated. And then read Ta-Nehisi Coates on the case for reparations.
