What is racism?

Racism is when someone dislikes, unfairly treats, harasses or vilify another person or group because of a difference that they believe makes themselves or their own group superior. It can be open or hidden, intentional or unintentional, and conscious or unconscious. Racism occurs when social structures and practices limit, exclude, oppress or discriminate against individuals and groups based on their race. Race can mean ethnicity, nationality, skin colour, ancestry or cultural background and practices (or sometimes religion).
