Racism

​Racism is the belief that there are human groups with particular (usually physical) characteristics that make them superior or inferior to others. Racist behaviour can be overt, such as treating people differently according to their race or colour, or covert, when society systematically treats groups differently based on some form of discriminating characteristic.
