Discussion question 5

Prompt: Consider the idea of “institutional discrimination,” which is described in your text as a form of discrimination that is embedded in the way social institutions function, regardless of whether or not the actors involved are personally prejudiced or intend to commit discriminatory actions. Do you think racism is a problem of personal prejudice or institutional discrimination? Why?

Your answer must be written in the form of at least two (2) full paragraphs, and you must respond to the answers of at least two (2) of your classmates. You will be graded on how well you considered and answered the question with reference to what you have learned in the course so far. Your instructor will also consider whether your responses to other students were a substantial contribution to the discussion.
