“Redlining is a form of institutional discrimination because the institutional mechanism of differentially valuing property based on race actually patterns the way individuals act” (Andrist, 2012). Many people don’t realize that this is a form of institutional discrimination because it is something that is done unintentionally, however, if you ever take notice when dealing with realtors they try to keep individuals around their own nationality or social class. In other words, some ethic groups come to perceive a financial interest in keeping other ethnic groups out of their people of color out of their neighborhoods and try to keep their neighborhoods predominantly to themselves. With this form of Institutionalized discrimination, it is hard to say if there are ways to eliminate it. People feel comfortable around people who have similarities to them, whether it be in ethnic background, of financial backing. As far as seeing the elimination of any institutional discrimination, being a United States Army Veteran I have seen some changes in the military. There have been may policies that have been changed that at one point stopped women from doing certain jobs in the military and stop certain individuals from even being open about their personal lives while in the military. So, I have seen some things change.AnthonyReferences Andrist, L (December 12, 2012) Institutional Discrimination: The Case of Redlining Retrieved from:
