2. Racial Prejudice + Power = Racism
People serious about the study of racism define it more strictly to mean the combination of racial prejudice + power. In other words, only the dominant group in a society can be racist because they have the power to oppress others. This forces the dominant group to recognize the dangerous side of their position of power and tends to make them upset. Some will avoid this issue all together and say that they are "colorblind", ignoring the very real effects of racial discrimination.
Marginalized groups of people can have racial prejudice towards members of the dominant group, (i.e., a black man calling a white man a cracker) but since they lack the power to oppress
Institutionalized Racism is the process of purposely discriminating against certain groups of people through the use of biased laws or practices. Often, institutionalized racism is subtle and manifests itself in seemingly innocuous ways, but its effects are anything but subtle. An example of this type of racism is the redlining of districts to keep certain people from moving in to a new neighborhood, pervasive in the financial industry in the 1950s and 60s.
Those accepted, established, evident, visible, and respected forces, social arrangements, institutions, structures, policies, precedents and systems of social relations that operate and are manipulated in such a way as to allow, support, or acquiesce to acts of individual racism and to deprive certain racially identified categories within a society a chance to share, have equal access to, or have equal opportunity to acquire those things, material and nonmaterial, that are defined as desirable and necessary for rising in an hierarchical class society while that society is dependent, in part, upon that group they deprive for their labor and loyalty. Institutional racism is more subtle, less visible, and less identifiable but no less destructive to human life and human dignity than individual acts of racism
Institutionalized racism deprives a racially identified group, usually defined as generally inferior to the defining dominant group, equal access to an treatment in education, medical care, law, politics, housing, etc. - Louis L. Knowles and Kenneth Prewitt, editors, Institutional Racism in America (Englewood Cliffs NJ: Prentice-Hall, Inc., 1969).

2. white privilege.
The phenomenon which occurs when victims of racism, through coercion or conditioning, turn racist attitudes and actions in against themselves or their racial/ethnic group.
Internalized racism involves using racist terms against other members of the same racial/ethnic group; placing higher values on members who appear or act more like the dominant group, i.e. valuing people who appear more 'white'.
Another name for the polygamist advocacy television program 'Sister Wives' airing on the TLC (a.k.a. Manimal Planet) basic cable network.
The show focuses on the exploits of its furry patriarchal leader, 'Cody', and his extended family in their above ground burrows in Utah and Nevada.
Other family members include: 'Janelle', the dominant female; 'Meri', the caring one; 'Christine', with some social problems; 'Robyn', the rebellious one; courageous little 'Shakespeare'; and thirteen (so far) naughty pups.
Person 1: "Hey, did you see the latest episode of Mankat Manor?"
Person 2: "No! I missed it. What happened?"
Person 1: "Well, Christine tried another burrow move, and Paedon almost died in the process. Aspyn got bit by a snake, and they had another run-in with the neighboring Yoder group."
A british term used by working and middle classes to define someone who wears branded sports clothing and will typically act in the "gang mentality". Usually, this will refer to a male betwixt the years of eleven and nineteen (there are exceptions) who is exoteric, loud, condescending and "up with the birds". Scallies will typically indulge themselves in a world of material things, as a front.
Their groups will stick a non-distinct, but recognisable code of dress (so as to assume that everything they do is for the group, as opposed to for the individual). Usually, they are athletic and physically dominant. While scallies can be of any class, the average is high working class or lower middle-class.
Scallies intimidate those who are seen as a threat. They are interested in whatever is in style, and contemporary, as opposed to long-standing institutions.
Contrary to what you may believe, hating "scallies" does not qualify one for intellectualism, nor does it make you "individual". By defining words on a website as a group, do you really think that you are any better than them?
Owning a Nirvana album does not assert any superioir musical taste or ability, nor can it be defined as "real music", because all music is real.
Thus concludes another session fo bitching at the non-exoteric "moshers", and the annoying as fuck "scallies".
