Institutional Discrimination. The sixth page in Chapter 7 defines and describes institutional discrimination. For example, when an individual, or a group of individuals, experiences discrimination by an organization, this is institutional discrimination. Some would argue that brutality inflicted by police against African Americans constitutes institutional discrimination.
In your discussion this week, reflect on the inequalities you read about with regard to race, ethnicity, and gender. In your initial post, think about the ways in which these inequities are institutionalized. Examine either a racial/ethnic group or a gender/sexual orientation group though the lens of institutionalized discrimination. Describe the types of discrimination and why it is “institutionalized,” and pose a reason for its existence. In response to at least two of your peers’ posts, suggest a potential solution for this type of institutionalized discrimination. Your solution could come from a current policy or program or could be one of your own imagining.
