The new racism: Racism without ‘racists.’
Today, racial segregation and division often result from habits, policies, and institutions that are not explicitly designed to discriminate. Contrary to popular belief, discrimination or segregation do not require animus. They thrive even in the absence of prejudice or ill will.
It’s common to have racism without racists.
— Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, on the persistence of racial inequality and white privileges in America caused by a legacy of structural and institutional racism
