Abstract

It is crucial to define the terms that pertain to systemic and institutionalized racism to clear any confusion in order to aptly move forward. Defining terms such as racist, antiracism, intersectionality, oppression, assimilation, segregationism, diversity etc., will aid in the coherency and consistency of these terms. Often times the terms listed are vaguely understood, leading to the development of disparities in society overtime and disadvantages to people of Color. Racist practices historically such as slavery, which is segregation of Blacks amongst the Whites, continues today in forms of segregation within the workforce, education, healthcare, and socioeconomic status that are deeply imbedded into what is termed systemic racism. Comprehending that societal racism is only the tip of the iceberg, leads way into understanding that racism is one of many factors that people of Color face, this is also known as intersectionality. Intersectionality means that racism is not the only disparity that causes the injustice in so many lives of Colored people, where a non-white and non-heterosexual female can also be subjected to homophobic oppression, while also being in a lower socioeconomic class, and having a disability (mental disabilities or physical disability).
