Some in the Democratic party have embraced and promoted the idea that American culture is either largely or essentially racist, but the opening of the Democratic National Convention (DNC) showed an attempt by the party to convince voters that Democrats still believe in American values.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said “systemic racism is deep” and that “it’s always been the poison in America” in an interview with Joe Madison on SiriusXM. Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted as far back as 2019, “Systemic racism is a root ideology that propped up an extractive economic system that prioritizes profit over human & environmental considerations.”
