 Reblogged from The Wandering Student:

Merriam Webster defines racism as, “a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.” Racism is a pervasive problem in our society that has been aimed at marginalized people, specifically people of color, with the intention of denigrating and hurting them.
