Racism
A definition commonly used by antiracist activists is "prejudice plus power." This captures the idea that racism is more than individual beliefs and attitudes. Certain racial groups have power because they have access to social, cultural, and economic resources, while other racial groups are denied this same access.

Prejudice + power = Racism

The Power is usually from institutions and systems

Why We Need to Talk About Racism
"Racism is the single most critical barrier to building effective coalitions for social change. Racism has been consciously and systematically erected, and it can be undone only if people understand what it is, where it comes from, how it functions, and why it is perpetuated."
