Race and Racism
o Race is defined as a human population distinguished on the basis of socially
perceived physical traits such as skin pigmentation, hair texture, facial
features and the like
o Racism is defined as a philosophy of racial antipathy that asserts the
superiority of one human group over another based on real or perceived
genetically transmuted difference
