Why Are We Still Talking About Racism?

Has the United States moved beyond race?

AJ+ speaks to people about why it hasn’t. Racism has existed throughout human history. It may be defined as the hatred of one person by another — or the belief that another person is less than human.

Among the questions about how to define racism are the question of whether to include forms of discrimination that are unintentional, such as making assumptions about preferences or abilities of others based on racial stereotypes, In sociology and psychology, some definitions include only consciously malignant forms of discrimination.
