1) (Most common manifestation) A white person in a white society who sees non-whites as being inferior AND has the ability and/or desire to prevent non-whites from achieving success and/or quality of life within said white-controlled society. The institutions controlled by a racist society (schools, courts, jails) will necessarily be racist as well.

2) A society of the same mechanism (i.e. the group in control of the society keeps others from being successful) within another culture (i.e. India, caste system)

3) Commonly confused with prejudice, bigotry and bias, which can be exhibited by any individual in any society. Racism has a different connotation associated with the person being able to use prejudice, bigotry and bias to, for example, kill someone because they were black (and "inferior") and THEN be acquitted at a murder trial with a racist jury and a racist judge. A black person committing this crime out of prejudice, bigotry and/or bias would not be acquitted by a racist jury and a racist trial...in fact, they probably would have executed the black person and realized the cops just picked up a random black man off the street (because he was a black man), so they executed the wrong person. If it was a black-controlled society with white people systematically being executed for committing crimes they didn't commit, one could argue that that particular black society might be racist.
A racist society will most likely have a majority of non-whites employed in some sort of servitude to reinforce the position of non-whites as inferior, presently or in the past. Contrary to popular white racist belief, non-whites are not employed as maids, servants, nannies because they love serving white people. A racist society is designed so that a majority of non-whites must openly acknowledge inferiority (usually through servitude) in order to be allowed a small share of resources - typically just enough to stay alive.

A lot of people on this thread were probably called racists and decided to deflect the definition of the word back on the person who called them racist INSTEAD OF trying to understand why people are calling them racists. Please ask why and they might explain. Racism is EXPECTED...A NORM...for minorities in the US and Europe...when someone calls you a racist, they are letting you know that you are an extreme overt manifestation; perhaps discussion will result in mutual benefit...perhaps your statements were misconstrued...or perhaps discussing it will help you realize how racist you truly are...the first step is acknowledging that you have a problem.

A term used to define a person that makes decisions on the basis of race. Race is a construction built to subvert races to the benefit of one race (guess which one? Hint: they are not the majority in the world). While bigotry is possible with anyone of any race, a racist is a person who belongs to the racial group in power. So while anyone can claim Native American heritage, whether true or not, racists have the unrecognized ability to mask their privilege and go through life without having to examine oneself. Not everyone is racist, but those who never question their privilege are enjoying the benefits of whiteness.
The racist attitudes of the posters shifted the blame to the marginalized group, in effect avoiding the issue completely. By the way, "crackers" was a result of the ones "cracking" the whip.

A racist is a member of a racial group who has the power to subjugate other racial groups. A racist benefits from institutionalized racism.

Does that mean that even a benevolent person from the dominant racial group is inherently racist as a result of institutionalized racism?

A person that obligingly benefits from historical racial privilege. This can be someone who benefits (consciously or unconsciously) the blatantly racist status quo by supporting it or simply not fighting it. NOTE: Black Americans, Asian-Americans, Indian-Americans, Latino-Americans, therefore, cannot be racist; they can be hateful or vengeful, but NEVER racist for they do not have the historical power/pretext.
In a world without affirmative action, all "qualified" white people who entered college without considering the context/their inherited privilege would be racist.

The unconscious racist does not think about the American penal system: modern-day enslavement, free labor, ethnic cleansing.

Many Chinese still see the Japanese culture as embedded with racism due to the years of imperial control and maltreatment they inflicted on other Asian cultures.
