Institutional Racism   and Racial Inequalities in Health Care and Education [WLOs: 1, 2, 3] [CLOs:   1, 2, 3, 5]

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Chapter 5 and Chapter 6 and review the following resources:

Social institutions organize almost every aspect of our social life, from education to healthcare and from the government to the media; and provide structure to our daily lives and deliver critically important services for our physical and emotional wellbeing. Unfortunately, because of racism engrained in our society, institutions are not immune to biases. Compared with individual racism, institutionalized racism refers to the policies or practices structured into social institutions, which lead to systematic inequalities across racial groups. To further explore this, review the required resources and address the following:

  • Based on the resources you      reviewed, describe two racial or ethnic group health disparities. Explain      how social determinants of health can lead to these disparities. What are      long term consequences of these disparities?
  • Based on the resources you      reviewed, describe two racial or ethnic group educational inequalities.      What factors contribute to these inequalities? What are long term      consequences of these inequalities for racial groups?
  • Explain how racial and ethnic      inequalities in health and education are examples of institutionalized (or      structural) inequalities.
  • What is the “model minority”      image and standard that many Asian Americans are held to in American      society? Based on the resources you reviewed, explain why this image is a      myth and a stereotype (be sure to address the methodological issues      highlighted in the articles). How does this stereotype harm Asian American      students?

Your initial post should be at least 650 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material and/or other scholarly resources and properly cite any references.

Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7. In your replies, be sure to note any interesting aspects of their response, such as the power of systematic/structural inequalities in health or education, racial or ethnic group health disparities, and/or the impact of the “model minority” stereotype. Your responses should be at least 200 words in length.
