Investigating institutional racism

Image of item
Book
"Will Racism ever end in America? Maybe. But if we only focus on the reduction of individual racism, like hate-speech and hate crimes, we will miss a huge piece of the puzzle. Many of the obstacles people of color face today are caused by the less-discussed concept of institutional racism. Institutional racism is the idea that many of our most powerful institutions promote oppression by targeting qualities that correlate with racial identity and disproportionately disadvantage people of color. We will not be successful in the fight against injustice until we reform all institutions that help it thrive. In this book, students will learn what institutional racism is, what areas of life are most impacted by it, and what movements are fighting for its eradication."--
