Racism

A way of thinking that values ​​the notion of the existence of distinct and superior human races; who is convinced that physical and hereditary characteristics determine traits of character and intelligence. Usually, this superiority is measured by the skin color or biological characteristics of a particular people. Racism, present in ideologies such as fascism, is responsible for justifying practices of social domination. Its diffusion was fundamental to the success of imperialism and Nazism, and today determines the exclusion of a significant part of the population. In Brazil, for decades, the idea spread that our society corresponded to a kind of racial democracy. Just look at some statistics to see that this is not true: here, compared to white, black people have reduced opportunities - and if they are black women the situation is worse.
