The combination of power and racial prejudice when that prejudice affects the power. Note that racism can happen with any racial prejudice and any power structure.
When Jim Crow laws used racial prejudices to enforce mandatory segregation, the prejudices became racism.

If Person A will no hire Person B because of a prejudice against Person A's race, that is racism.

If someone random person yells a slur at you, it is prejudice, but not racism, as that person has no power over you.

A racist is someone both privileged and is socialised on the basis of white supremacist.

This terms applies to all white people regardless of class, gender , religion, culture or sexuality.

Racism only works because one group has power and other groups do not.

Calling someone a CRAC*ER is not racist. It’s an offensive word not a racial slur.

We cannot be racist to white people. They’re the superior. But you can discriminate against them.

The only groups of people you can be racist to are the minorities (e.g Black people, Asians, and Hispanic ..)
β€˜Racism is when superior racially discrimination against minoritiesβ€˜ not minorities against supreior.

The belief that some races are inherently superior (physically, intellectually, or culturally) to others and therefore have a right to dominate them. In the United States, racism, particularly by whites against blacks, has created profound racial tension and conflict in virtually all aspects of American society. Until the breakthroughs achieved by the civil rights movement in the 1950s and 1960s, white domination over blacks was institutionalized and supported in all branches and levels of government, by denying blacks their civil rights and opportunities to participate in political, economic, and social communities.
"The horror of class stratification, racism, and prejudice is that some people begin to believe that the security of their families and communities depends on the oppression of others, that for some to have good lives there must be others whose lives are truncated and brutal." - Dorothy Allison

Prejudice or discrimination based on skin color, origin, and/or religion. A group with institutional power (or more control) is technically benefiting from racism, even if they do not want to be. For instance, white men actually benefit from racism especially in the U.S. and Europe because of the power that heterosexual white men receive. Even if you are a white man (like me) who does not condone or accept it, you are still benefiting from it. Unfortunately, this type of racism is difficult to battle due to unequal population. Some believe that a fair system would be if there is a 15% black population and a 75% white population (these statistics are just made up), then the seat in government should be 15% black and 75%.

It is not based on the perpetrator's intentions, but on the perception of the victims. Someone may joke that he hates green people, but green people may not take this as a joke.

Many liberals see racism as a white-person thing due to their heavy institutional power, while many conservatives think that any prejudice statements are racism (reverse-racism). Not all conservatives are racist and not all liberals are anti-racist.

It is predicted that this generation will break the political parties. These young people see that religion, race, sexuality, gender, identity, origin, etc. do not matter and all people should be treated equal. These youngsters have the power to end racism, sexism, and division.
Racism is evil.
