Transcript of Racism

Racism: Animosity toward other races; prejudice against people who belong to other races

Reasons for Racism:

Ethnic Rivalry
Skin Color




Racism is not just an ideology of race or power. It is also a religion that has its own sets of beliefs and practices. This fact is rarely recognized. However, in her definition of racism, Ruth Benedict has correctly suggested that racism is a religion that is established on a naturalistic world view, and which has the superior race as the focus of its future hope and its philosophy of history.

"Since September 11, 2001, Americans have increasingly recognized the presence of a sizable Muslim minority in the United States. This was a hard way for an almost invisible group to suddenly find itself recognized, becoming intensely controversial overnight, perceptions of it shaped by actions of coreligionists who hijacked Islamic religions as much as they hijacked airplanes" Tyriq Modook-Academic Journey
Not to make this all about blacks and how we are hurt by these sterotypes and slurs.... but whites and other cultures also have ways of being discriminated.
The Broader Discrimations:
"There cannot be a White Entertainment TV, but there is Black Entertainment TV.
There are MANY Black only magazines, but not white only.
Black's and Hispanic's can get welfare just by showing up, yet whites have to prove they are poor." Mary Jane- YahooAnswers

This is were it starts...
Apartheid in South Africa where a social and political segration between non-whites and whites for over 50 years
where people were allowed to live,
where they could go to school,
what occupations they could hold
who they could interact with
Nelson Mandela was sentenced to life in prison after publicly denouncing the Apartheid for 28 years. After jailing in 1990, he received the Nobel Prize in 1993 for his dedication to bringing about the end of government sanctioned racism and abuse in South Africa;
became the first Black President.
Black = loud and ghetto
Hispanic = Illegal
Black men = basketball
white women = small glutoids
