Today, the word is used more broadly to apply to racially unfair and discriminatory beliefs, actions, desires, projects, persons, groups, social institutions, and practices

Racism (Robert Miles, 1989) Sociological definition: Racism came in the form of letters, chanting from the crowds, banana throwing, monkey chanting, songs, and not just one or two but thousands singing racial abuse, chants, that kind of stuff, and letters through the post
