What is Structural Racism?

When systems that people made discriminate against people because of their race, we call that structural racism. Structural racism is built into our systems — that means systems that are built racist, stay racist. While laws change, structural racism still exists in new and old ways. But when racism is hidden, it’s hard to prove it’s happening. That’s why it’s so important to talk about and actively work against structural racism. “What is Structural Racism?” explains how structural racism exists in the US today and the ongoing work to get rid of it.
