'Racism' is a form of prejudice. The word prejudice means to pre-judge something or someone. People who are 'racists' are actually prejudiced against other people of certain skin colors and/or certain ethnic backgrounds, but not their 'race', since there is actually no such thing as different races.

I'm not saying that we should ignore the real prejudice in the world and our society against people of certain skin colors and/or certain ethnic backgrounds. I'm saying that we need to stop using the words 'racial', 'racist', and 'racism', because they just perpetuate prejudice on the basis of 'race' which is an arbitrary, made-up concept!

The fact is, when we stop using that language, there will be no excuse to use that arbitrary concept to discriminate against people. Some individuals will still pre-judge others based upon their skin color or their ethnicity. But, there is no need to use the word 'race' when addressing these issues. Think about it.

Please check out my CARE2 pledges and/or my YouTube video, asking people to help dispel the myth of 'race'.
