  1. 1. Welcome To Our Capstone Project. RACISM
  2. 2. Definition of Racism: <ul><li>1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others. </li></ul><ul><li>2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination . </li></ul><ul><li>3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races. </li></ul><ul><li>a.) 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 -- because of skin color, language, customs, place of birth or any factor that supposedly reveals the basic nature of that person. It has influenced wars, slavery, the formation of nations, and legal codes. </li></ul><ul><li>b.) The most notorious example of racism by the West has been slavery, particularly the enslavement of Africans in the New World (slavery itself dates back thousands of years). This enslavement was accomplished because of the racist belief that Black Africans were less fully human than white Europeans and their descendants. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Quotes on Racism: <ul><li>“ Lukewarm acceptance is more bewildering than outright rejection.” </li></ul><ul><li>I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality.... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word. </li></ul><ul><li>(MLK) </li></ul>
  4. 4. Dennis Leary <ul><li>Racism isn't born, folks, it's taught. I have a two-year-old son. You know what he hates? Naps! End of list. </li></ul>
  5. 5. William Faulkner <ul><li>To live anywhere in the world today and be against equality because of race or color is like living in Alaska and being against snow. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Unknown Author <ul><li>“ Laundry is the only thing that should be separated by color.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Racial superiority is a mere pigment of the imagination.” </li></ul>
  7. 7. Dave Chappelle <ul><li>&quot;Anybody ever been down south? So you guys know what I'm talking about. Now the racism down there is just perfect. It's stewed to a perfection. It's omfortable, it's out in the open. There are no secrets in Mississippi. Everybody knows the deal. Good morning nigger. Good morning sir.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>“ I still think people do have racial hang-ups, but I think one of the reasons I can joke about it is people are shedding those racial hatreds.” </li></ul>
  8. 8. Oprah Winfrey <ul><li>“ Excellence is the best deterrent to racism or sexism.” </li></ul>
