Racism: mistreatment of people on the basis of race, place of origin or ancestry; a belief that one group is inferior to another group. Racism is the belief that a person‘s abilities, personality, and values are influenced by race, color, or ethnic origin. Racism is any action based on stereotypes that view all members of a racial, ethnic, or cultural group as being the same, rather than individuals.
