Institutional racism dates back to the s in the United States of America where institutional racism was the result of the societal system that was sustained by slavery and segregation. The laws of that time approved such a caste system, and the results of it are present in organizations nowadays as well.

We know, for example, that there remain some very explicit institutional expressions of racism, or, at the very least, institutional sanctioning of racism.   Racial profiling, criminalization, and mass incarceration of African-Americans constitute today’s legal system for institutionalized racism, discrimination, and exclusion. Michelle Alexander, civil rights advocate, litigator, scholar and author of The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness exposes today’s racial caste.

  By: John Rosales.
