    1. 1. The World In Which We Live In: Racism In America<br />By: Emma Dieckmann<br /> Brittany Hagenhoff<br /> Carolyn Hills<br /> Elizabeth Ripp<br />
    2. 2. What is Racism?<br />The belief that some races are inherently superior (physically, intellectually, or culturally) to others and therefore have a right to dominate them.<br />This usually involves the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.<br />http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/racism<br />
    3. 3. “Racism is man's gravest threat to man - the maximum of hatred for a minimum of reason.” - - Abraham J. Heschel<br />“Laundry is the only thing that should be separated by color.”  - - Unknown<br />“Racism rests upon and functions as a kind of seesaw: the persecutor rises by debasing and inferiorizing his victim.” - - Albert Memmi<br />“We hate some persons because we do not know them; and will not know them because we hate them.” - - Charles Caleb Colton<br />“We learn to be racist, therefore we can learn not to be racist. Racism is not genetically. It has everything to do with power.” - - Jane Elliot<br />
