The second part addresses brief histories of the relationships between and among different racial and ethnic groups in the United States, and, more importantly, the conditions under which those relationships originated and developed. The third part addresses institutional discrimination by discussing different aspects of how racial and ethnic relationships develop (or not) within the context of social institutions such as the family, education, the economy, the government, and even the media and entertainment.
