[Correspondence] Charlottesville: blatant racism, not grievances, on display

We recently published a paper1 on structural racism in a Lancet Series on equity and equality in health in the USA. Structural racism refers to the many ways in which racial subjugation is embedded in US society—not just in one individual, or groups of individuals, or one institution, but in all of our institutions—from culture to housing to employment to law enforcement, and beyond.1,2 Racism is supported by wealthy and working class whites alike.2,3 The ultimate weapon to maintain and reproduce this system is terror.
