I believe that ethnicity representation across the social strata of US society clearly contrasts with your lack of identifying problems. Take for
instance the state of society that goes into the military and the reasons why.
Then there is the normal class stratification in regards to education relation to wage.
As for the NFL and NBA I do not define the institutions as racist organizations but the general US society that enables ethnic stratification.
To me as a non American the logic and industry behind collage sports that then drives professional sports is extremely deplorable. It goes in parallel
with the issue I mentioned above (the military) I see their benefit in social planning as a way to address the pressure from lower classes, its like
the lottery, percentage wise how many rich people play the lotto ?

Social stratification in the US actually has more to do with liberal make-believe policies to "equalize" social situations than anything else.
The problem is that some ethnic groups and social groups experience what you can think of as subsidized poverty. They are paid to "know their place",
and members who rise above that place are universally excoriated, such as Clarence Thomas (a Republican-appointed Supreme Court justice) (and one
who's extremely popular with Republicans, myself included).
What it really is is merely a continuation of the now-banned practice of segregation, which itself was a continuation of the then-banned practice of
And that subjugation is almost exclusively perpetrated by American liberals through the policies of the Democratic party.
It's actually quite difficult for me to think of a counter-example, and I'm pretty well-versed on the subject. Abortion, for instance, very heavily
targets african americans, and the founder of planned parenthood was a firm supporter of the Ku Klux Klan. Susan B Anthony, on the other hand, was
one of the first women in the country to vote, voted for a Republican (the party founded by abolitionists in order to bring about abolition), and
remained an opponent of abortion until the day she died.
But fine, abortion is probably too third-rail.
Let's try gun control. Here conservatives are, arguing for the right of low-income inner-city residents (often african american) to purchase and
legally own inexpensive firearms in order to protect themselves, their loved ones, and their neighborhoods. A far cry from the liberal position which
forces blacks to choose between defending themselves and obeying the law, and thus creating a culture where criminality is viewed positively.
It could be that every liberal policy simply suffers from radical unintended consequences. Or it could be that, taken altogether, they combine to
form a single fully intended policy of racial and social suppression and subjugation. I tend to hold the latter view more than the former, these
