Well said. This is less about racism; a slave by any other color will do. Your solution is spot on: personal sovereignty. Do not depend on the system. Do not interact with the system unless unavoidable. Do not look to the system for justice.
If you or other readers are ready for a manual of sovereignty, read “how to live free in an unfree world” by Harry Brown. Like the Matrix, all systems function on rules which can be broken once understood. This book will explain the traps used by the world, and how to navigate them to meet the only goals which matter: yours.
