Thomas Sowell, economist and author, said on Fox News Sunday evening that "systemic racism" has no meaning and is unable to be tested in any empirical way.
"You hear this phrase, 'systemic racism' [or] 'systemic oppression'," Mark Levin, host of Life Liberty & Levin told Sowell.
"You hear it on our college campuses. You hear it from very wealthy and fabulously famous sports stars. What does that mean? And whatever it means, is it true?"
"It really has no meaning that can be specified and tested in the way that one tests hypotheses," Sowell responded, adding that the brunt of the phrase is reminiscent of propagandist tactics from Nazi Germany, according to Fox News.
"They're absolute hypocrites," Levin said. "They claim they want equality for all. They claim that there'll be the withering away of the ... police departments ... and yet every time you look at a Marxist state, it is an authoritarian, top-down, centralized police state."
Sowell added that activists who claim to be wanting to shed off racial and class differences across the board have created their own hierarchies.
"If the election goes to [Joe] Biden," Sowell noted, "there's a good chance that the Democrats will control [Congress] and considering the kinds of things that they're proposing, that could well be the point of no return for this country."
