this article is on the racism and its effects on the society today..

Racism is one of those unusual things which seem to escape the understanding of clear and to the point definition. Racism is a system of racial discrimination and prejudice. The concept of race as classifying people can be seen as misleading people and prejudicial as far as it’s involved in the quality of human life. The term race has been quite confusing because of its four principle connotations. 
1. Physical anthropologists have called races the various subspecies of the human race characterized by certain phonotypical and genotypic traits. 
2. Laymen have profusely used the word race to describe a human group that shares certain cultural characteristics such as language or religion.

Racism is never pushed to the side. For example when a white law school student at Georgetown reported that black students were not as qualified as white students, it made a big controversy about racism. If the student would have murdered some one it would have caused less attention. Racism is an obsession. Universities are always on top of it, newspapers and politicians reject it, churches are against it, and America is strained with it.
Insurance Fund of New York made a company pamphlet in which she explains that all whites are racist and that only whites can be racist.(Thomas Jackson, What is Racism? PublishedAlthough some blacks and liberal whites acknowledge that non – whites have been forced into it as self defense because of centuries of white oppression. What would be called racism when done by whites is thought to be normal when done by any one else. The opposite is also true.
At a few college campuses, students that disagree with affirmative action have set up a student union for whites, analogous to those for blacks, Hispanics, etc, and have been accused of being racists. Today, one of the favorite slogans that define the unorganized quality of American Racism is “celebration of diversity”
