Racism and Implicit Racism

The events on the past few days starting with a twitter tweet to a House Resolution once again pen the debate on this topic.

Racism as define touches on prejudice, discrimination and or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior. The exact words go back to your country without even stating the restof the statements merely serves the definition.

Implicit racism on the other hand includes unconscious biases, expectations, or tendencies that exist within a person regardless of ill-will or any self aware prejudices. This is how someone thinks they don’t refer themselves as not being racist when they are making judgements on people from different racial or ethnic groups.

This is also why some observations and statements made in the past days arrived to be an automatic negative reaction to those referred to froma different race or ethnicity.

As this conversation goes through and once again spark a new on going debate
