With the recent celebration of the Juneteenth holiday, we may wonder what racism is really about.

Racism stems from the belief that people whose skin is a different color are inferior in intelligence, natural abilities and/or human development in cases of physical abnormalities.

We can call it discrimination, prejudice or any other word or behavior that supports the belief that other people are inferior based on their color, culture, or standard of living.
