Don Quixote’s Thought for the Day: Institutional Racism

As the American civil rights movement took hold in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, overt expressions of racism all but disappeared from public view.  Rather than celebrating their victory over racism, the academics and activists of the time found a new target — institutional racism.  Since whites controlled the institutions, they somehow magicly used those institutions in racist ways, never mind that the only open racial discrimination was against whites in the form of “affirmative action.” 

So, now that a black family sits in the White House and the open discrimination against whites continues, don’t we have a case for institutional racism far stronger than the academics and activists ever dreamed of?  Why aren’t they taking to the streets to oppose such an immoral abuse of power?  What am I missing?  Or could it be . . .Nah.
