Defining Racism recently published an article on shifting attitudes and definitions of contemporary racism. Especially note how different  racial groups emphasis racism as a individual vs. a group phenomenon. It is easy to understand how when racism is conceptualized as an individual's hateful acts, it can seem like racism is a thing of the past, rather than a modern institutionalized system.

Tomorrow's post will examine more of these diverging perceptions, but for now read "What’s Racism? That’s Harder for Youth to Answer Than You Think."  I would think attitude are shared among many age groups. Perhaps the shifts in our conception of race is more temporal than generational? See what you think.
