The domains of systemic racism

Editor's note:

I published  a separate blog for 1 1/2 years titled "Recognizing Systemic Racism." That blog is being discontinued and the articles are being republished here. To access all the articles on System Racism scroll down through the labels in the right hand pane and click on "systemic racism."

There is a  distinction between prejudice, discrimination, and racism. Using this triad,  racism refers to systemic, institutional or structural oppression, and subjugation to dominant populations by people of privilege..

Domains of systemic racism:
Health care 
Criminal justice
Social welfare
Political process participation e.g. voting and other forms of representation in various societal decision making groups.
Culture - arts, sports, community groups and recreational activities and organizations

Over the next several months and maybe a few years we will be studying how systemic racism operates in our culture in the US.
