It's the belief of people being inferior or superior solely based on their skin color. Really its not that hard to understand, but people keep peddling the misinformation that it must include prejudice + power and have forcibly trying to rewrite it as such. The prejudice + power is usually used to hide ones own racism. Usually anyone that peddles the prejudice + power are anti-white extremist or mistakenly belief that their own race, any color, is inferior.
Since it's likely that everyone has experienced racism by the time they read this I'm sure no example would be needed.

The act of discrimination between the human races, recognising their genetic differences both physical and mental, their behaviour and culture, and appraising those differences. Also the beleif that multi-culturalism is wrong.

In today's society the term is strongly political, and many people synonymize the term with hatred, bigotry and fascism.
"The Bell Curve" (by Harvard professors Richard Herrnstein and Charles Murray, 1994) was one of several scientific and intellectual studies that encountered strong political opposition because it concluded that the average African-American trails 15-20 IQ points behind the average European. All authors were accused of racism.

The desire to live, work, marry and mingle with one's own kind: A nearly-universal desire and virtual law of nature, often expressed as 'Birds of a feather flock together', and denied only by liberals who live and work in areas much too expensive to have any more than a token number of minorities.
Racism is so ingrained and universal that it is reflected not once but twice in our language: The word kind (type) and kind (nice) have the same origin, as does the word like (similar) and like (appreciate), from which we infer that we like those whom we are like, and we are kind to those of our own kind.
