There are at least two main ways of defining this word. The most popular definition of racism is racial prejudice. By this definition, racism is a personal, moral failure.
Many social scientists study racism this way. Concepts like “old-fashioned racism” (thinking African Americans are inherently inferior to whites) or “racial resentment” (thinking that African Americans are culturally inferior to whites) think of racism as rooted in the individual.
Wow a discussion about racism that actually examines what racism is. What a concept.
