Racism is bigotry, prejudgment, or negative attitudes aimed towards another person based on their religion, color, ethnicity, or cultural background. It is the belief of some specific groups of different communities that think that they are superior, and all others are lesser than them. The social and moral characteristics of a human being are determined by its inborn biological characteristics. Ethnic separatism is the idea that separate groups will stay separated apart from one another and they must much of their time focused on bigotry. But as a humanist, I believe that racism is unacceptable, and everyone must stand up against racism.
Racism and history
Racism exists in all parts of the world including Western and Eastern but the basis or a little bit different on both parts. Nevertheless, Over the last 500-1000 years, racism by Western powers against non-Westerners has had a much greater effect on history than any other kind of racism. Western racism exists on the basis of skin color but not on religion but in Eastern racism exists in the form of religion, intra-religious discrimination, and social class systems. The West’s most infamous definition of oppression was slavery; the enslavement of the Africans in the New World in particular. One most important feature of racism is being observed very clear in attitudes particularly towards blacks and immigrant groups.
The current incident of Mr. George Floyd in America is and the strong scene of racism in the world’s most powerful developed and organized country. Mr. Gorge Floyd was killed by because he was a balk man. He has died after a Minneapolis police officer kneels on his neck for more than eight minutes as he told them “I can’t breathe”.
