everyday racism

differential treatment of individuals on the basis of their racial group that occurs in common, routine social situations. For example, consider two college students who are pictured in the newspaper for participating as volunteers at an event to clean up a local neighborhood. Everyday racism would be evident if the picture caption identifies the White student as a volunteer and misidentifies the African American student as a community resident.
