I believe that aff. action springs from a twisted interpretation of the
Civil Rights Act. But since it has been interpreted this way, it has
become law. Do race-based laws = institutional racism? Does the presence
of a few race-based laws make the whole system racist?
My personal definition of institutional racism is the ability for
minorities who honestly believe that they have been wronged to perceive
and label an evil even when no tangible evidence is present.
