Institutional racism is the more subtle form of racism that is embedded in our systems, our policies, and our practices.  It is a pattern of  organizational programs or policies working  to the benefit of white people and to the detriment of people of color, usually unintentionally or inadvertently.  It goes beyond person-to-person racism that is easily identifiable.
