I helped a friend get an out-of-court settlement for black racism.

As for absence of meaning, Dr. Warren Farrell points out, in his book "The Boy Crisis", how the absence of meaning has especially impacted boys and young men. Dr. Farrell notes the "failure to launch", the absence of fathers as a result of divorce court bias, declining male college enrollments (men now make up 39% pf college students), and the four-times-greater male suicide rates. Even boys in kindergarten have been accused of having "toxic masculinity"
Racism and bigotry clearly work in many different directions.
