Racism

Abstract

Racism post–civil rights has shifted from its ugly, obvious, overt manifestations to something more sinister and subtle. It is important to recognize and name racism when it is directed against us, or when we ourselves, unwittingly or wittingly, participate in it, but it may be more difficult to detect or define. Racism is both systematic and subtle discrimination against and judgment of an individual based on identity with a particular racial group. It always has both an individual and an institutional manifestation.
