And what is not racism?
I hear this term quite a lot these days. Some people are of the opinion, that its overuse has reduced it to a meaningless epithet. I would tend to agree with this view and would add that the overuse of this word also detracts from real issues related to differences between people, causing actual harm.
Here is the dictionary definition of Racism:
1.a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
2.a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
3.hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.
