    Institutional racism is a complex, multifaceted concept. Some definitions focus on the outcome of segregation and inequality, while others focus on the outcome of unearned privileges and advantages. Some definitions stress that once racism takes hold and is embedded within institutions it does not require "intent." Rather, institutional racism can be perpetuated by seemingly benign policies, practices, behaviors, traditions, structures, etc., which is why it usually goes unchallenged.
