Let's look closely at the concept of racism. It consists of two components, prejudice and discrimination based on social perceptions of biological differences between people. Many times it manifests itself in the form of social actions, practices, or beliefs, or maybe political systems that look at different races as superior or inferior to one another. This idea is based upon presumed shared inheritable traits, abilities, or qualities.

As we look at all of the incidents of racism that have occurred in recent months, such as the blatant killing of black youth around the United States,  the verbal attack of Michelle Obama by a television personality, and the recent placement of KKK material in a Tuscaloosa, Alabama Wal-Mart store, it points to the fact that everything is not all well. Don't fool yourself, Racism is still Alive and Dangerous.
