(US) The systematic subordination of members of targeted racial groups who have relatively little social power in the United States (Blacks, Lations/as, Native Americans, and Asians), by members of the agent racial groups who have relatively more social power (Whites). This subordination is supported by the actions of individuals, cultural norms and values, and the institutional structures and practices of society.
The Institution in the United States is set up to systematically support whites (hence the term: White Privlege). One needs to only turn on the television to see how hard it is to find a non-tokenized person of color. This does not mean that people of color are unable to hold biases or hate towards Whites. It is just not racism, but discrimination.

Treating someone differently just because of their race and nothing else.
it IS racism to say "all *insert race* people are worthless"

it is not racist to say something based on fact "black people are better at running while white people are better swimmers" (as proven by the olympics)

Regular Racism: Prejudice from one race to another, usually based on stereotypes.
American Racism: White people who hate black people
Another common american term for Racism: White people who are proud of their heritage (Though I'll admit it's not really something to be proud of.)
Stereotypes good and bad, You find the racism;
Black: My dad was a civil rights leader!
Bad black: My dad's a gangster!
Asian:We helped build canals in america!
Azn: I'M AN anNoYinG N00b!
White: We established America.
Bad White: And now we're going to take away everything it stands for!
Hispanic: I am an upstanding citizen and work very hard for minimal payment.
Bad Hispanic: My dad's a gangster.
I could go on.

1. Something only white people can do, and no white person is capable of NOT doing.
The definition *is* an example of racism, because see, the worst racism is the kind *only the victims have a problem with.* If only white folks are complaining that other folks are being racist toward them, well we probably are. And if you think they "deserve" it, maybe you think White people live for hundreds of years, too. Nobody alive today in this country was ever a slave, and nobody alive today in this country ever owned one.

state of mind in which one thinks he or she is better than members of another race because they are a different race
This country was not founded on equality of men, it was founded by racist slave owners who worked hard and fought for everything they had.

If the group of blacks scores lowest on the standardized tests, it is not racist to say that they are stupid.
