Definition and analysis of White racism



"Racism has become a prominent subject these days. It has been "discovered" in much the same way as Captain Cook "discovered" NZ – it had had a factual existence for a long time previously. Suddenly racism becomes a word on everyone's lips; concern with racism becomes a national phenomenon." This paper looks at the distinctions between prejudice and bigotry and racism.
