Abstract:

A three part series exploring the history of race perceptions and behaviors towards races in the United States, within the context of recent scientific discoveries which have toppled the concept of biological race. Episode three focuses on how institutions shape and create race, giving different groups vastly unequal life chances. After WWII, whiteness increasingly meant owning a home in the suburbs, aided by discriminatory federal policies. European "ethnics," blended in to reap the advantages of whiteness while African Americans and other nonwhites were locked out. Advances have been made since the Civil Rights Movement but the playing field is still not level.
