Post #4 Part 2
As I understood individual racism is when a person that does something against the other person who is different race because they hold that hatred against them. While institutionalized racism is when more powerful people keep people, that they hold the hatred against, in the same bad conditions. It's important because it depends on how much of the impact it would have on the group as institutionalized racism would have more impact on them rather than individual racism. But they are somehow interconnected together as the outside force gives us information and the individuals interpret it in their own way. So I think institutionalized racism is a bigger problem today as they still tell people the information that they want us to hear and maybe get rid of other information. For instance, with the news channels I read somewhere that some news stations don't report the information that people need to hear and maybe another channel like BBC news tells people more of what's going on in the US and in the world.
