(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)

1. The belief that race accounts for differences in character or ability.

2. Racial Prejudice + Power = Racism

Many 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.
Marginalized groups of people can have racial prejudice towards members of the dominant group, but since they lack the power to oppress that group, it cannot be accurately called "racism."
In most cases racism includes the social, political, and economic advantage of one group in relation to others.

See Wikipedia's article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racism for more information.
Racism is difficult to see from a position of privilege and difficult to live with from a position of marginality.

Marginalized people, historically racial minorities, live with the presence of racism in their daily lives.

In America, racism continues to be perpetuated by whites, knowingly or unknowingly, blinded by their own privilege.

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.
