Racism: Hating people because of a genetic feature that they have, such as race.
As time progresses most people tend to hate people who claim to be racists and and its slowly becoming less socially acceptable to be that way. (thankfully)

Prejudice: Hating people based on genetic features that they have, such as, homosexuality, schizophrenia, being bipolar, being short, being tall, freckles, hair color, gender, age, being ugly, having physical disabilities, being overweight, having mental disabilities, being autistic, having down syndrome, having learning problems, being mentally ill, having any physical abnormality. These types of prejudice are usually entirely socially acceptable and pretty much encouraged.
