Exactly. Anti-discrimination law does not prevent racist laws.
It imperfectly nullifies said laws.
You have yet to show they are quite obviously and not simply possible examples of systemic racism. In reality, it's far from clear that's actually the case and even researchers often make it clear discrimination is only one possible (non-mutually exclusive) explanation for those differences.
It's precisely why it's not that easy to detect systemic racism in the US today, as opposed to the time when it was an explicit or very thinly veiled policy enshrined under the law and there were no laws to fight discrimination.
If you wish to not believe in the existence of systemic racism in US law, you are free to believe that.
I doubt you will convince anyone of this.
There is a crack in everything,
That's how the light gets in...
