There is a  distinction between prejudice, discrimination, and racism. Using this triad,  racism refers to systemic, institutional or structural oppression, and subjugation to dominant populations by people of privilege..

Domains of systemic racism:
Education
Health care 
Criminal justice
Housing
Employment
Religion
Social welfare
Political process participation e.g. voting and other forms of representation in various societal decision making groups.
Culture - arts, sports, community groups and recreational activities and organizations

Over the next several months and maybe a few years we will be studying how systemic racism operates in our culture in the US.
