What is racism?

Racism is the belief that one group is superior to others based on how they look, where they come from, or what religion they practice.

Some of the ways you can experience racism is through:

  • Racial jokes or slurs

  • Stereotyping (assuming a group you’re part of has certain characteristics)

  • Vandalism of properties such as mosques, synagogues, and grave sites

  • Racial profiling (using race as a reason to detain, arrest, or investigate someone)

  • Being denied training, jobs, housing, etc.
