It is reflected in disparities regarding wealth, income, criminal justice, employment, housing, health care, political power and education, among other things. Whether implicitly or explicitly expressed, institutional racism occurs when a certain group is targeted and discriminated against based upon race. Institutional racism is mostly implicit in our ideas and attitudes, so it is often unnoticed by the individual expressing it.

The prison system
The court system
Police departments
I know these are all connected but they each experience institutional racism in a different way

Yeah. My sister went to Europe (can’t remember which county) and the owner of a restaurant wouldn’t let her friend in because she was black. Also, in Brazil, the upper class/upper middle class have black servants who are actually given up by there families to serve someone else. They are often looked down upon and you can’t even say thank you to them.

Affirmative Action is institutionally racist, but other than that, no.
